What should your clients know about you?

I know firsthand the intense emotions of divorce with young children, a business, and significant properties. We completed our divorce in the 91 days of Colorado mandates. If I did it so can you!

I’m convinced we can’t keep letting broken families suffer through a broken system; by working diligently to help clients through disclosures and settlement offers, we do the very best we can to help our clients through their legal matters in the most time-efficient and cost-effective way possible.

What do you enjoy most about working at Divorce In Colorado?

I enjoy the tribe we’re building to serve others. With friendships and working relationships extending from 42 years to 2 years, having such a fantastic work “family” makes helping others through an often difficult time more manageable.

What do you believe to be the most important skill in your work?

As a business owner, my ability to lead and mentor is most important. Our tribe has a clear understanding of our mission to serve others and how we can best help our clients in the most cost-effective and time-efficient way possible.

As the attorney & mediator, my communication skills are the most important. Knowing how to speak with clients and opposing parties can make difficult conversations easier, progress faster, and more comprehensive agreements better.

What is the best advice you can give someone getting Divorced?

Get out together – then move on. When you cannot separate the emotional toll of divorce from the logistics of dividing assets and debts and determining a parenting plan that is best for the children, you will save money and time and come out of the divorce with better agreements, finality, and closure. Get In ~ Get Out ~ Get Over It.

Think about what you want and what you want your future to look like. Then think about how you can make that happen while acknowledging your spouse and/or child(ren) ‘s needs.
