Useful Guidelines to help you find the right attorney.
Choosing a divorce lawyer is the biggest decision you will make in your divorce. The right lawyer will be a teacher, sounding board, counselor and advocate. It is ultimately a personal decision, but one that can be informed by some useful guidelines.
Does the attorney practice
exclusively in family law?
Just as you want a surgeon who does a lot of the procedures you need, attorneys who limit their practice to family law gain experience and insight that will be invaluable to your case. Our firm has been devoted exclusively to family law for more than 30 years.
Does the law firm focus
on complex matters?
Routine divorces with few assets or complicated issues are an entirely different practice from cases with business valuations, trusts, professional practices and complex child issues. Our firm regularly handles highly complex divorce and custody matters.
Do you feel that the people
you talk to really listen?
We pride ourselves on the personal attention we give to each client. Our unique case management system fosters excellent communication and a high level of service on every case.
Is the attorney recognized by peers?
The people who know most about the competence of lawyers are other lawyers who encounter them professionally. A number of groups have compiled lists of the best divorce lawyers in Colorado. Attorneys in our firm are listed in all of them, including:
- Best Lawyers in America
- Colorado SuperLawyers
- American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers
- Denver Business Journal
- 5280 Magazine
Have the attorneys held bar association offices?
Being honored by selection to offices in bar associations and other family law oriented organizations is an indication of the standing of an attorney in the legal community. Our attorneys have served in the following representative positions:
- Chair of the Colorado Chapter of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers
- Chair of the Family Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association
- Member of the Executive Council of the Family Law Section
- Chair of the Colorado Child Support Commission
