We want you to be able to hand over your problems and your worries to us. We do most of the work on your case via phone, text message, or email, so you can spend your time doing what is important to you. We are also available nights and weekends for those who have busy work and family lives. Your lawyer will handle nearly every aspect of your case- answering your questions, drafting your documents, and dealing with the opposing side on your behalf- so you don't have to worry about anything getting lost in the shuffle. When your lawyer can't handle something? We have a trusted team of process servers, private investigators, and researchers for that special service, all reporting directly to your lawyer. We find that your lawyer is superbly prepared to handle your case in Court when that lawyer has handled every document filed, every call from you, and every report made.
We have specialized in criminal, divorce, and family law litigation in El Paso County for over nine years. We know the judges, magistrates, mediators, attorneys, and other professionals who may be involved in your case. Having been a part of the community for nearly 30 years, we understand the values of our community and what makes Colorado Springs so unique. We also know the special challenges associated when a member of our military becomes entangled in a criminal or family law case.
