Attorney Profile

Attorney Dawn K. Gull is the founder and owner of The Law Offices of Dawn K. Gull located in Wexford, Pennsylvania. A highly rated attorney with over 20 years of legal experience, Ms. Gull devotes her practice exclusively to family law and protecting the rights and best interests of her clients throughout Allegheny, Beaver and Butler counties.

Fully committed to delivering the highest level of representation possible to those she serves, Ms. Gull provides the personalized attention and compassionate support her clients deserve as they face legal challenges involving divorce, child custody and support, alimony, property division, and other related matters. She also assists with drafting and enforcing prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and she handles corporate valuations for clients going through divorce who share business interests with their ex-spouses.

A 1992 cum laude graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, Ms. Gull attended Duquesne University School of Law, obtaining her Juris Doctor in 1996. During her time in law school, she was involved with Phi Alpha Delta, a legal fraternity, ultimately serving as vice justice for her chapter.

Heavily involved with the Allegheny County Bar Association, she currently serves as Chair for the organization's Family Law Section and is Immediate Past Chair of the Professional Ethics Committee. She is also a member of the association's bench-bar committee, and for more than 11 years, she co-chaired the organization's children's issues sub-committee. She also serves on several committees for the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and she is the former president and secretary for the The Matrimonial American Inn of Court in Pittsburgh.

Committed to her community, Ms. Gull volunteers her time and services to various local organizations, including the Neighborhood Legal Services Association Pro-Bono PFA program and the Allegheny County Pro-Se Motions Court program, among others, and in 2014, she won the Pro Bono Award from the Pennsylvania Bar Association.
