About Chelsea Gatterman

(also known as Chelsea Elise Gatterman, Chelsea E. Gatterman)

Even from a young age, attorney Chelsea Gatterman knew she was destined for great things. At age five, she was already an expert arguer and knew she wanted to go to law school. That strength in arguing turned into a passion for using her strengths to help people in crisis.

Chelsea primarily practices in the areas of divorce, child custody, and child support. She also has served as Guardian ad Litem for children. Family law provides her with a unique opportunity to help people during a low point. She is constantly learning and keeping up with changes in the law, and strives to explain even the most complex issues to her clients in a simple way.

A divorce case is a single occurrence, but the implications last for the rest of your life. This is why Chelsea advocates in a way that keeps family units intact as much as possible. Parents must learn how to co-parent long after she leaves the picture, and her main goal is to set families up for long-term success.

She is also a fierce advocate for children and families and has participated in numerous successful adoption cases.

Chelsea initially channeled her love for helping people into social work, a field she majored in for her undergrad. Her experience in social work gave her unique insights into practical ways to help people, and the resources available in the community to do so. She went on to get her law degree from Marquette University before joining Davidson Law Office, a small family law firm in Milwaukee. In 2016, she opened her own practice, focusing largely on disability, family law, and Guardian at Litem work.

Chelsea's own family is big and diverse. She has two daughters, Magnolia and Eleanor, and a stepdaughter, Carly. The family is accompanied by a one-eyed cat named Winnie and a rescue dog named Carl. Chelsea is a fishing addict and loves spending time on the water, and recently managed to catch a 48-inch Musky up in Door County. If not spending time with her daughters or in the office, she might be found trying out new restaurants, going to local festivals, and supporting local businesses in Oconomowoc.

"I also would like to take a min and let you know that Nikole did an awesome job with my case. She made a rough time in my life very smooth and I think she deserves some recognition for it. I met with a lot of firms before I was referred to you guys. A lot of firms are very pushy and want to fight for what they think is best for your case. Nikole always looked on both sides of the fence. She would tell me what she would suggest doing for each set as well as take my thoughts and concerns into consideration. When I would ever have a question I would call, email or text and she was very fast responding to me with an answer. Even is she was out of the office or off that day. It was absolutely great. If she didn't know the answer or I wanted another opinion on something she had no problem going out and asking another attorney in your firm and that is great. With you hire a team of lawyers not just one. That's always a plus in these tough situations. Also like we talked before the payment options are great for people that don't have that one lump sum to put out up front. I will definetly send people your way. Also the fact that you are the owner and personalize videos for every client is huge. I was so nervious signing that contract with and the min I got that video personalized to me from you all my fears went away and I knew that I had made the right decision. So please keep up the interaction with your client because that goes a long way for a lot of people. Thanks Again for everything you and your awesome team has done for my family. I hope I never need to use you guys again but if I do you can bet I will be a forever customer."
