About Me 

I am a shareholder specializing in family law, where I bring both a strong technical writing background and financial background to my cases.  I graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law with the high honor of Order of St. Ives, only conferred on the top 10% of the graduating class.  While in law school, I also served for two years on the Denver University Law Review, where I further honed my understanding of the law and drafting skills.  Since joining Gutterman Griffiths, I have drawn on my economics background to analyze complex asset cases, including separate property claims and dissipation of marital assets, as well as utilizing my extraordinary research and writing skills in drafting and finalization of motions and other documents.  I have represented clients both in Court and at the negotiating table.  I believe clients should be offered all options to resolve their family law matters, including negotiation, mediation and litigation.  Often clients come in for a divorce or parenting case feeling beaten by the system or disempowered and they need to be taught how to stand on their own feet and take ownership of their cases.  I believe in empowering my clients and I involve them in every aspect of the litigation or other resolution of their case.  I work with the best family law attorneys, although I am able to offer a lower hourly rate than my fellow shareholders, which is a great benefit to clients.  My particular specialties include cases with oil and gas assets, hidden assets and dissipation of assets claims, appeals, high conflict litigation, including post-decree cases, and relocation cases.
