We went with Tim after much research on lawyers in this field. We did a very CONTESTED step parent adoption that we were told by another attorney was impossible to win! Tim always returned calls/emails immediately and was very thorough. He knows the law inside and out and goes all over the country teaching other lawyers. He has a very caring and trustworthy face that isn't just an act. You will look in those blue eyes and know you're in good hands.
For someone of this experience we were expecting the cost to be out of control, but he was very affordable. Of course it would of been significantly more had we not been organized and had our paper trail in order, but that's any attorney. You have to have your stuff together people!
His passion is being an advocate for children and his resume shows it. Google him and you'll find nothing but his great accomplishments in this field. His cases have changed case law in Colorado for foster families as well. Fortunately no one I know has had to go through what we did with my deadbeat ex, but if they do, I would VERY STRONGLY recommend Tim Eirich to represent them. He won't mess around and waste your time and money as I've experienced with other lawyers. Seriously, look no further, you won't find a more experienced and dedicated attorney anywhere! And yes if you're wondering, we won our case with Tim!

We utilized Tim to help us through a very difficult and emotional process regarding adoption. Tim was a solid person in every sense of the term. He was compassionate yet professional and strong. He was extremely knowledgeable of the information needed and process to follow and lead us through flawlessly. Tim was able to anticipate every need ahead of time and eliminate any last minute needs or surprises. I cannot thank him enough or recommend him enough.

Tim Eirich represented me in an extraordinarily complex child relinquishment case. The case became even more complex when individuals that had no standing in the case attempted to derail a well developed plan for the placement of my daughter/granddaughter. Tim worked harmoniously with the numerous psychologists involved and the child placement agency. Tim was always thoughtful, insightful, and very courteous. His knowledge of the law was phenomenal and he put that knowledge to work on my behalf which resulted in my daughter (now granddaughter again) being adopted by a family that is truly wonderful and I am still in my granddaughters life. I recommend Tim Eirich for anyone involved or considering child relinquishment or adoption.

Tim was a lifesaver for us. He took on our case the day before our court appearance and I was amazed at how professional and knowledgeable and prepared he was. He is an expert with foster parent cases and puts his heart into what he does. He stood up for our family when we thought there was no hope and saved our foster daughter we had for 3 years from being ripped out of our home. In the midst of all the ugliness he always encouraged us to stay positive. His knowledge of the system and the laws pertaining to foster parents rights are unmatched. We are so thankful he answered our call and took on our case. Tim, as well as his entire staff, was a pleasure to work with. THANK YOU TIM !!!!!

My husband and I had a very long and arduous adoption journey and encountered a lot of lawyers and agencies that did not have our best interest in mind. But by the time we actually were able to get to the finalization part of our adoption, Tim Eirich was exceptional. He communicated often and clearly. He told my husband and me exactly what to expect, what would happen, and what we had to know, what papers we needed--and did not need--to obtain. But most importantly, my husband and I had to leave the country with our new baby before the finalization was to take place. Tim worked extremely hard for us to be able to make that trip, building in time for getting his passport, etc. Our finalization was done in record time--shockingly quickly--and we were able to go abroad. Our faith in adoption attorneys was restored.
We could not recommend Tim Eirich more highly.

I would absolutely recommend Tim to any of my family or friends. I am very grateful for the services he provided to me and my wife. His passion, expertise and dedication made all of the difference in our case! We would not have been able to adopt our wonderful son if it had not been for Tim's hard work.
Several months ago my wife and I were faced with losing our foster son who had been placed in our home for eventual adoption. We were devastated. Everyone we talked to at the Division of Child and Family Services told us there was nothing that we could do about it. We just couldn't accept that, so we reached out to a guardian ad litem that we had worked with in the past to see if he could share any thoughts. He strongly recommended that we contact Tim.
We then went through several months of very contentious court hearings where no one would stand up for us and our son but Tim. I really can't express how grateful we were to have someone fighting for us. It was clear to us from the very first hearing that Tim had far more conviction and passion that our case was right than any of the attorneys who were arguing against us.
We knew all along that it was a long shot that we would win our case but we felt we had to fight anyway to try to protect our son. We were just trying to make sure that we had done everything we could to help him but expected it to be a losing battle. There were 4 attorney's arguing against us and Tim. In spite of all of that, we won our case! We have now adopted our son and he is part of our forever family.
Throughout the case Tim demonstrated his expertise with the Law and an ability to read and understand people and the system we were working within. There's just no way that our story would have had a happy ending without Tim! We will be forever grateful.

Tim did a fabulous job for us. We had some very scary moments in the beginning of the process and he was able to keep me calmed down. He was always very responsive when we called or emailed with a quick turn around. If we every decide to adopt again in the future we will definitely use Tim. I will tell all my friends and family members that need assistance with an adoption to call Tim and his associates.

Extremely competent and well spoken in preliminaries and trial. Tim and his associate Seth Grob are the best in this field. My wife and I had a pecular senario with a little girl that we are seeking to adopt if she becomes available and we were able to successfully get permanent placement due to Tim's outstanding litigation skills and knowledge base on attachments. Prior to hiring Tim we had researched who was the best in the state and everything pointed back to Tim and his associate Seth. They have successfully litigated and created case precident in Colorado on many cases involving adoption issues.
I was highly impressed when in trial that the opposing attorney was going to attempt to make it a smear campaign. Immediately Tim put a halt to it with his opening statement stressing that we would refuse to mud sling and harm potential future relationships between the two families seeking permanent placement of this child. That had set the tone for the trial and I'm happy to say that the relationship with the other family is starting to flourish.

I am so grateful that we found Tim to help us adopt our great granddaughter, whom we have had custody of since November 2009. From the beginning, Tim made clear that we had a difficult battle because of our particular case, but he was willing to go for it if we wanted to proceed. In our favor was the fact we wanted to secure her future financially through military and Social Security benefits. Our ages of 75 and 79 were definitely not a positive factor.
Within a few days of our initial meeting with Tim, we knew we had found the right person to walk us through the long adoption process. He was quick to return any calls or emails, answered endless questions, and was open and honest with us the whole way. We never felt like we weren't in a partnership with Tim...we worked together, and that was a big factor in being patient through several delays with background checks, hearing dates being changed, etc.
Tim knows his business....we found him to be very confident, competent and capable, plus he has a great personality. We do not hesitate to say that he is a great attorney......you won't be sorry if you retain him.

Mr. Eirich represented myself and my family in a respectable, genuine matter. He was extremely knowledgeable in his field and legal expertise. I wouldn't have trusted anyone else to pursue my case. My case was a parental termination and adoption. We did not expect the other party to show up to court to fight, but he did. Mr. Eirich went with the flow, represented us as if he expected him to show up. Mr. Eirich made the difference for our family and knew exactly which aspects of the case to emphasize so that it was a favorable decision. He is very honest and follows the rules to a tee! Also, Mr. Eirich is straightforward during the consultation and gives an honest opinion of the likely case outcomes (pros & cons), which was great, so that we could decide if we should financially take the chance. In preparation for our court hearing, everything was very streamlined and timely (unlike my divorce hearing with another lawyer). Without reservation, I would do this all over again and I would pay any amount of money to have the representation of Mr. Eirich!

We started out with an "I do not really know how this will go" prognosis. We were clearly a different sort of animal, being in a very complicated adoption placement situation for months! Tim, however, was able to navigate those very, VERY muddy waters and not only eased us throughout this entire process but actually helped us WIN!! Tim is what I would consider to be an expert in the adoption field when it comes to lawyers. He knows the ins, the outs, and the potential pitfalls. His professionalism was unmatched in and out of court and surpassed our original expectations. While we still have a ways to go, permanent placement was a HUGE victory. We were so impressed with Tim that we actually are keeping him on for the rest of the process even though it is being handled by Social Services. We would recommend Tim and his firm HANDS DOWN! You can not get a better attorney anywhere in our opinion.
