Helping You Get The Legal Outcomes You Want

The consequences of divorce proceedings are far-reaching and long-lasting. They will shape your relationships with your children. They will influence your financial stability and, in some cases, where you are able to live. Indeed, a divorce will affect every aspect of your life. With this in mind, it is essential to find an attorney who knows how to protect your interests and your rights.

Serving in Colorado Springs and throughout the region, I have more than a decade of experience guiding individuals through divorce and related matters. I work hard to help my clients resolve matters quickly and favorably, ensuring that they avoid the most — and least — common legal pitfalls that can threaten their futures.

Protecting Your Children's Interests

Children are the most important consideration in any divorce matter. It is absolutely crucial to act in their interests with regard to custody and support. In most cases, children benefit greatly if parents can reach accord on these matters. Otherwise, the Colorado courts have broad authority to determine what is best for one's children — and the outcomes can be devastating. The courts often split families apart needlessly, excluding one or the other parent from their children's lives and thereby harming everyone involved.

My aim is to keep decisions in your hands. There are very few circumstances in which a parent should be completely shut out of his or her children's upbringing, and I strive to help spouses achieve appropriate and mutually rewarding resolutions.

Protecting Your Finances

Equally crucial is ensuring that you are able to remain financially independent following your divorce. I am skilled in working with local counsel to obtain favorable outcomes for my clients in matters concerning spousal support, asset division and related concerns.

Whenever possible, my approach is to resolve matters through mediation or other alternative means of dispute resolution. This is typically less expensive and less stressful for all parties involved. However, I have tried many cases in court — prior to opening my family law practice, I served as a state prosecutor — and I am unafraid to represent my clients at trial.

I provide legal support to traditional couples, same-sex couples and unmarried couples alike. If you would like to discuss your options with a lawyer, please call me at 719-475-9994 or reach me online. Initial consultations are always free.
