Abby was born and raised in Wisconsin and has deep ties to Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. Abby practices almost exclusively family law since graduating from Vermont Law school and passing the Wisconsin Bar Examination in 2011. She has extensive experience in the traditional and collaborative divorce processes. Abby attended extensive training to act as a collaborative attorney and to act as a family mediator. Abby joined Burbach & Stansbury in December of 2021 after practicing in Milwaukee, Racine, and Kenosha for several years. Abby has litigation experience throughout South-Eastern Wisconsin including Racine, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington, and Ozaukee Counties. Abby also has experience acting as a Guardian ad Litem in Racine County.

Abby prides herself on her availability, quick responses, and open communication with her clients. Abby is always eager to assist individuals and families with paternity, child support, divorce, legal separation, and guardianship matters. Abby is very passionate about keeping children's best interests at the forefront of all negotiation and litigation. Abby has unique insight into children's best interests as acting as a Guardian ad Litem provided her the opportunity to speak with children of various ages and backgrounds about how their parent's litigation affected them.

Abby currently lives in Milwaukee with her husband, young daughter, and crazy Black Lab Gus. Abby seeks to be very engaged with the health of Wisconsin families and participated on the Lead Safe Advisory Committee and participates on the Board of Partners with Paws Service Dogs. Abby loves the outdoors and spends every moment she can outside with her family hiking and exploring Wisconsin. Abby and her husband are avid mushroom hunters, but she will not tell you where they find them.

Abby received the Wisconsin Law Journal's prestigious 2020 Leaders in the Law Award. An article written subsequently about Abby's practice of family law can be found here: https://wislawjournal.com/2020/09/16/volberdings-career-mushrooms-into-excellence/.

Abby's feelings on practicing family law:

"There are a number of reasons I choose to practice family law. At the top of the list is the opportunity it gives me to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Family law is unique in that it allows attorneys to work very closely with clients during a time in their life where they feel very little control over matters that are very near and dear to their heart. I enjoy practicing in an area of law that allows me to guide and assist clients through such a trying time in a way that makes them feel empowered again. I have a real passion for helping clients achieve their goals because it effects the most important aspects of their lives. I also care deeply about kids and sincerely want to make sure children's best interests are at the forefront of cases involving children."
