Gina M. Duncan

Senior Attorney

Tacoma, WA


Raised in Tacoma, WA, Gina M. Duncan is a compassionate Senior Attorney and certified Title 26 Guardian ad Litem. A zealous advocate for her clients, Gina’s practice encompasses issues of custody, child support, parenting plans, and division of property in divorce. Her goal is always to help her clients get a fair deal and to make sure they are heard by the court. 

Gina has extensive experience investigating parenting issues in high-conflict family law cases and making recommendations to the court, considering the best interests of the children. She enjoys helping clients navigate the legal system and work collaboratively when possible, while preparing fully to advocate for her clients at trial. 

Immediately upon graduating from law school, Gina was a Law Clerk for the Honorable Jack E. Tanner in the U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington for 18 years. She assisted the Judge during trials and accompanied Judge Tanner during his designations as a Visiting Judge to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, where she drafted memoranda for the 9th Circuit Panel Judges.

Following her clerkship, Gina ran a thriving general practice firm for 14 years prior to joining Gravis Law, PLLC. Her practice included family law, dependency, criminal law, driving offenses, guardianship, and motor vehicle accidents. This wide range of experience has proved invaluable in helping her family law clients navigate collateral issues.

Gina strives to help her clients see the “big picture” when it comes to formulating parenting plans, and arrive at a fair and equitable distribution of property in divorce cases because what may work in the moment may not work in the future. She is proudest of her success in getting her clients’ children returned to them, whether the child was taken by the state or by another parent who then moved to another state without just cause.

What she enjoys most about the industry is that every case is different, which keeps the practice interesting. She also likes the challenge of getting the best result possible for each client.

Outside of work, Gina enjoys socializing with friends and traveling. She is also a member of the Tacoma Pierce County Bar Association and the Pierce County Minority Bar Association.
