Family Law

Trusted Denver Family Law Attorney Helping Families Reach Resolution

Compassionate attention to each family member

Every family faces challenges. Some of those challenges escalate to the point where legal intervention is necessary and may put everyone, including parents and children, in turmoil. Family law deals with every type of family-related conflict. With more than 25 years of experience in practice in Denver family law, I handle your issues in these areas with skill, efficiency and compassion for everyone involved.

Protecting your best interests in Colorado

Denver family lawyers must also be well versed in laws specific to Colorado, such as:

  • Common law marriage and termination by divorce
  • Allocation of parental responsibility, which has replaced child custody
  • No-fault divorce

Before your marriage, I help you draft a prenuptial agreement. During your marriage, I handle legal issues such as adoption, paternity, guardianships and domestic violence. If your relationship comes to an end, I see you through divorce, annulment, property settlements, alimony, child support and child custody matters. If a child runs into legal trouble, I pursue immediate resolution through juvenile adjudication.

I focus my practice on family law. Denver and its metro area are my primary coverage areas, and I am well acquainted with the legal systems and community here. I stand ready to help your family resolve the issues that matter to you most.
