Our Firm's History

From home to town and then home again - Over 30 years in law practice



In 1978, Priscilla Gruber received her law degree with honors from Northern Illinois University College of Law and established a law practice, Riley and Gruber, with Francis X. Riley, her law professor and mentor.  The partners first saw clients at Priscilla’s newly built home on Ridge Road in Plainfield.  After two years, Frank Riley retired from the practice.

Priscilla continued serving clients from her downtown Plainfield office as Priscilla H. Gruber, P. C., which was later renamed the Gruber Law Office, Ltd. after it began expanding.  The first addition was Priscilla’s elder daughter, Jeanette, who began her CPA practice from the same location, then moved her business to Peoria Heights, Illinois.

The second addition was the younger Gruber daughter, Patricia, who graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin – Madison College of Law in 1992 and passed the Illinois Bar Exam that year.  After working at the Illinois Supreme Court as a research attorney for two years, Patricia, joined the firm in 1994. 

In 2006, the Grubers built a new wing addition to Priscilla's home, the now known as 8380 South Ridge Road, in Plainfield to allow them to practice there together indefinitely with much shorter daily commutes for both attorneys.  The practice has come back home where it began over 30 years earlier.
