    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.
    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Business matter.

    This was my first involvement in hiring a business attorney and Maren walked me through the process step by step. She told me exactly what to do for weeks before I even decided to retain her as my lawyer. She is straight forward, trust-worthy and immensely knowledgeable. I was about to lose my board-certification and Maren worked with me and the members of the board for six months creating a disclaimer on my website that satisfied the board and many other solutions that made it possible to save my business and my credentials. Since then she has helped me numerous times preventing small claim lawsuits with my clients. Maren is incredibly valuable to the success of my business! Thank you again, Marcia.

    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.

    Maren handled two cases for me and had very good results in both. One involved a real estate transaction and the other was an estate issue. I would definitely use her again and recommend her.

    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.
    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Real Estate matter.

    After months of looking for a home, I finally found one and made an offer that was accepted. I was thrilled. The condo was located across from my office and was going to be perfect! My excitement was quickly dashed the day following the Seller's acceptance when I learned the Sellers had been presented with two offers simultaneously and had accepted BOTH!

    Initially, the Sellers' Realtor told us it was just a mistake and wanted me to go away. The Sellers intended to accept the other offer as it was "superior" to mine and it had been signed 3 minutes before mine. That didn't sound right to me. That is when I knew I had a problem that neither myself nor my Realtor knew how to handle.

    I contacted Maren Skulborstad, not knowing if I had a leg to stand on and worried if I went down this road it might turn into an expensive and drawn out affair, which I didn't want to take on. Maren eased my mind immediately, giving me a sense of relief. In short, she explained the law in layman's terms to me and outlined what action she proposed. I went into this thinking I didn't have a chance of getting the home of my dreams. I was wrong. Maren was able to resolve the situation within a couple days. I was able to perform my obligations according to our contract, without missing deadlines, and close my loan on time!

    Maren is competent, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend her.

    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.
    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Family matter.

    I took my complex and longstanding child custody case from an expensive attorney over to Maren with hopes that she could obtain a favorable outcome without billing me for too many more hours. Not only was she affordable compared to other similarly-skilled attorneys, but she has an impressive understanding of Colorado's family law and breezed through my case with fantastic results. Her unique and effective handling of my case goes unmatched by even some of the most seasoned attorneys. I would definitely recommend Maren. Thank you!

    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.
    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    When I decided it was time to file for divorce I asked a friend (who was already in the process of a divorce) he gave high praises and recommended Maren Skulborstad. I did decide to look into Maren and Pearson & Paris P.C. Needless to say I was impressed on what was said about her so I decided to schedule an appointment.
    After my initial sit down with Maren I knew that talking to her and hiring her was a very good decision. She explained the process, what to expect, and some of the challenges that I would come up against. Maren listened to what I needed to say about my situation was about as straight forward and to the point about what would be in my best interest and also informed me of issues I may need to address. She listened and took many notes which made me feel at ease about hiring her. I felt that she truly had my best interest in mind. I truly believe that Maren and her paralegal kept me informed on each and every step and hurdle that came up.
    I cannot commend Maren and her paralegal enough on how good of a job I feel they did and at a fair price. I would recommend Maren to anyone in a marital situation that requires legal advice.

    • I recommend Maren Skulborstad.
    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    The last five years my marriage being filled with turmoil, I decided that enough was enough and filed for divorce in July of 2013. After filling the initial paperwork; and getting a stack of paperwork that looked very challenging. I knew I needed legal assistance.
    So like any good consumer I started interviewing attorneys. Looking at experience, pricing, and number of cases they handle. After interviewing several lawyers I found Maren Skulborstad at Pearson & Paris P.C. While talking with Maren, I found her to be much different from the other attorneys I had spoken too. Maren actually took the time to listen to everything I was saying. (Without interrupting me, like the other lawyers did.) She addressed each concern I brought up and also raised a few other points that I had not even considered. Most importantly she spoke in terms that I could understand and never used “Legal ease” on me.
    While going through the steps of the divorce Maren and her paralegal stayed in contact with me on a regular basis. Which is very refreshing, to be honest. All too often I hear people talking about their lawyer and how they never hear anything. Maren is the opposite of that. She does and will keep you informed on everything she has done and is planning to do for you. Another great thing about Maren is she takes time to help you understand each step of this very difficult legal process.
    In closing, I also have to point out that Maren is very aggressive in her legal representation. She is not afraid to get in the trenches with you or for you when needed. So if you want a very good attorney at fair price I would recommend Maren.

    • I hired Maren 1-3 years ago.
    • Maren handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Maren has gone above and beyond the duties of a Lawyer. I find her to be 100% trustworthy. She has given me advice on how to handle all situations in my divorce with out being one sided. She looks at the best intersted of the childeren in the case.
