Real People, Real Offices: Sneak Peak into a Family Law Attorney’s Office

Our series of sneak-peaks into real people’s offices continues with an Office Envy exclusive tour of the office of Minneapolis family law attorney, Cathy Gorlin, a partner at the prominent Minnesota law firm of Best & Flanagan.

Ms. Gorlin has over 30 years of experience as a family law lawyer, and she is the best in the business when it comes to matters ranging from prenuptial agreements and adoptions to divorce decrees and custody disputes.

An L-shaped desk and flat screen monitor is flanked by two guest chairs on one side, and Ms. Gorlin’s chair on the other.


Her office is organized. And so is her schedule thanks to this desk planner.



Ms. Gorlin’s office has wall to wall windows over looking Minneapolis and the surrounding suburbs. Her decor is made notable by meaningful and unique pieces, like this bottle of “Alimony Ale” (it’s bitter)…


…this framed certificate, and a photo of Gorlin showing her good taste could withstand even such brutal fashion forces as the 1980s…

…And Ms. Gorlin’s favorite piece of decor: her hand-carved wooden paperweights and blown glass business card holder.


On her bookshelf…


And, of course, her breath taking view of Minneapolis.



There’s the Metrodome! (Wonder what it looked like from this angle when it caved in last year).

Thanks to Ms. Gorlin for the exclusive tour.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!
