Bill is a Family Law Specialist. It is all he does, and, with, that he brings over thirty years of experience in the navigation of Colorado’s family law processes. From intake to conclusion, he will guide you through, and prepare all required forms, court conferences, temporary orders, mandatory mediation, and if necessary permanent orders. Throughout the journey, you will be fully advised, so that the decisions you will make are fully informed, as to what the law allows, and the human consequences of them. It is your family, your life, and in the transition(s) that inevitably accompany a decision to move forward, you not only expect competence, you are entitled to grace.
