Attorney Profile

Attorney Gillian J. Blomquist is a partner with Wermerskirchen & Blomquist, LLC, law firm in Wayzata, Minnesota. A top-ranked lawyer with more than 16 years of total legal experience, Ms. Blomquist focuses her practice exclusively on family law, and she provides unmatched counsel and support to clients throughout the greater Twin Cities region and surrounding areas who are going through a divorce or have some other serious legal issue affecting their families.

Ms. Blomquist gained a passion for family law while working as a paralegal at another prominent law firm in her area as well as with the Hennepin County Domestic Abuse Service Center. She has extensive experience handling all aspects of her clients' divorces, including settlement negotiations and divorce mediations to help them obtain their goals and the favorable outcomes they expect and deserve as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

Early in her legal career, Ms. Blomquist served as Assistant Attorney General with the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office, where she focused primarily on child protection matters. As such, she gained a strong sense of sympathy and compassion for children caught up in the divorce process, and she has proven herself an invaluable legal advocate for them and their parents throughout all divorce and custody proceedings. Moreover, she also serves as a volunteer guardian ad litem for vulnerable adults, and she routinely volunteers with the Children’s Law Center.

A 1997 cum laude graduate of Arizona State University, Ms. Blomquist received her master's degree in public policy from the University of Minnesota's Hubert H. Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs in 2000, graduating cum laude. She then attended Arizona State University College of Law as a William H. Pedrick Scholar, and she was an active member of the Arizona State Law Journal.

Ms. Blomquist obtained her Juris Doctor in 2004, and she is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota. She is also a member of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts, the Hennepin County and Minnesota State Bar Associations, Minnesota Women Lawyers, and the American Bar Association, among her other professional affiliations.
