I'm writing this "approximately" seven years after my case came to an end. Mostly, because Mark's advice has helped me become a better Father, not just win a case .
I found Mark to be honest, direct and wise. Not once during the entire case did I feel like I was going it alone. Not once did Mark talk down to me. It was evident that he felt a single father could parent effectively. I actually grew during the entire process with an understanding of why our children must come first in a custody case.
Thank You Mark

All I can say is you better have A LOT of money for Mark. I paid $10,000 to retain and for expenses throughout court. I thought that this would be plenty, boy was I wrong. He Nicole and dimed me everywhere and blew threw the money very fast. With all that money spent not one thing has been accomplished. It's a year and a half later and still nothing accomplished, but of course he wants more money. What for I ask...you haven't done anything helpful! What a complete waste of time and money! He clearly doesn't care about his clients and what's in the best interest of the child/children. He simply cares about the money!

Mark Chapleau was not my attorney when I divorced five years ago. This was a costly mistake and a big regret. My divorce proceedings were long, ugly, difficult, expensive and inequitable. And, unfortunately, they may never be over as my ex-wife is always looking to battle on parenting time and child support. The difference now is that I have Mr. Chapleau for representation. This has been a game changer.
When my legal struggles with my ex-wife continued long after the papers were signed, I began searching for an attorney specializing in fathers' rights. I have been working with Mr. Chapleau for three years and it has really turned things around in my life. He is a wonderful navigator and guide through divorce. My case always seems important to him and that it gets his full attention. He has been thorough in every detail. He cares about my two sons' best interests and always gives thoughtful, fair advice.
Mr. Chapleau's skills are most evident in the courtroom. We were in court recently and his closing was fantastic. It's such a good feeling to know that your case is in the best hands and that it is being presented effectively.
I wish I had known Mr. Chapleau at the beginning of my divorce. It would have prevented so much future hassle and expense. I am grateful every day to have him now and I give the highest recommendation for his work.

I would recommend Mark Chapleau and his team without hesitation for the impeccable job he did representing myself and my daughter's best interest in my complicated and what would be considered "ugly" divorce. At a difficult time, where I was caught off guard and not prepared for this life changing event, Mark kept me focused on the important issues and made sure every decision I made was in the best interest of my daughter.
With the opposing party using questionable tactics, the strategy Mark and his team put together was precise and effective. Throughout the entire process, I was guided with direct and honest advice which kept me from being tempted into taking the same questionable road as the opposing party, which helped immensely in the end.
One particular trait I never hear people talk about when recommending an attorney is how important it is for your attorney to hold you accountable and ensure a high standard of behavior and etiquette is maintained. Not afraid to let me know when I would seem to be acting selfish or making a decision that could hurt me in the future turned out to be very important.
At my final hearing, Mark's skill set and performance clearly out shined the opposing counsel. The final argument was presented in away that was more like a form of art rather than just a statement of facts.
If you are looking for a legal professional who will coddle you and let you use questionable tactics, Mark is probably not the right attorney for you. However if you are looking for an attorney who will represent you in a highly ethical manner while keeping you focused and in line to get results, you can NOT go wrong by hiring Mr. Chapleau.
My daughter and I thank you for everything you did.

Mr. Chapleau handled my initial divorce, and did a very good job ! His staff as well as Mr. Chapleau kept me informed, up to date, and helped me with real issues that cropped up. After the divorce was finalized, there continued to be cases of interference in my rightful and court ordered parenting time and ability with my son. Mr Chapleau as well as his whole staff was right there to help me through each of those issues as they arose with expert, timely legal advice and guidance, even to the point of filing contempt charges as well as enforcement of parenting time actions with the Court. When the week of our hearing arrived, I was put at ease, and had all of my questions answered by Mr . Chapleau through his considerable resources and time. He made me feel as if there was no other case as important to him as mine and my son! In court, he performed admirably, with skill and knowledge. He was incredible to say the least. Thank you Mr Chapleau for all of your time, help, experience, and caring to me and my son !

Mr. Chapleau represented me in my divorce. He is very aggressive about my rights as a father even with some difficult custody issues in my divorce. He also clearly had my sons best interests in mind, and did not hesitate to let me know when I was being selfish, and not looking after my sons best interests. He has a whole office and staff that are very knowledgeable and personable. I never felt like "just a client" when i was there. They all were concerned about me and my son as well. Mark's knowledge of Family and Divorce law in Colorado is amazing. He is well respected by some, and I think feared by opposing attorneys due to his well deserved reputation.
After the divorce was finalized, he did not withdraw and leave me hanging. Rather, he has stayed on and has taught me how to deal with my ex, and resolve many issues amongst ourselves. I have no doubt, however, that he is ready at a moments notice to take charge and go to court again on my or my sons behalf should it be necessary.
I would readily use him again, and I think that i could find no other attorney that I would recommend to my friends, neighbors,m and anyone contemplating a divorce.
