About Me

Bill Van Horn has been serving the people of Colorado for decades. Bill originally came to Colorado from Iowa to enter the Air Force Academy as a young cadet. He returned to Colorado after years in the active duty Air Force to earn a law degree from The University of Denver Law School. Bill continued to serve our country in the Air Force Reserve retiring in 2004. During Bill’s early law career he was a law clerk to a Federal Judge, and a former Senior Litigation Attorney with the U.S. Department of Justice.

Bill moved into the area of family law and is recognized as a prominent, and highly respected professional in his field. He formerly practiced with the firm that writes the book on Colorado Family Law prior to opening his own practice.

Bill is married and he and his wife, Penni, have five adult children, two daughter-in-loves, and one grand-daughter. They attend Mile High Calvary.
