Antoinette Granholm

Antoinette “Toni” Granholm has been a family law litigator for over 16 years, both in Illinois and Colorado. Toni is a graduate of Northern Illinois University and holds a Bachelor of Science in Social Work and received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver College of Law.

Family law was a very natural transition for Toni. She believes that family separation impacts every single aspect of a person’s life: financial, emotional, physical, and social. Life transitions do not have to be difficult; they can be positive when a caring professional is available to provide guidance.

Toni’s background in social services has instilled in her a passion for working with children and families and makes her a compassionate and zealous advocate for her clients. In addition to being a family law litigator, Toni is also a court-certified Guardian Ad Litem and experienced mediator.
