My case involved post decree parenting time and decision making. My previous attorney became a Judge, and I used AVVO to find Brenda. We had a complicated case that involved a PRE, PRE update, 2-1/2 day hearing, and emergency orders after the ruling. Throughout the process Brenda and her staff were always professional, accessible, and friendly. While I hope that you can find alternatives to using the courts you will not find better representation. Brenda’s understanding of mental health, legal experience, and desire to do the right thing were all critical to the success we experienced in my case.
I have nothing but great things to say about Brenda and her staff. Divorce is not a fun thing but with Brenda by my side she made it as enjoyable as possible. We actually laughed a lot together! May people view lawyers as non-compassionate robots but Brenda is nothing close to that. She is kind and caring but a bulldog when she needs to be. Whether that is with you or the other party. She will hold your hand look you in the eyes and tell you your irrational fears are just that. She was willing to go above and beyond for me to get the job done. She offered to call me at 230am while I drove into work to finalize some details before our finally hearing since I work crazy hours (which I said was crazy but she simply replied "That's just the kind of attorney I am - willing if needed!" I will forever hold a special place in my heart for her and her staff! You will not be disappointed!
I haven't met with them but did talk to them on the phone. Their rates seem pricey but when it comes to lawyers, you get what you pay for. The woman I talked to was very nice, dirrect and answered all of my questions. She did however talk pretty fast on the phone making it a tiny bit difficult to understand her at times. I felt bad but I had to ask her to repeat herself a couple of times. So if thats the only bad thing i've got to say about this then i've said it. I hope we can do business together.
Brenda Storey represented me in my recent divorce. In a word she was, great! From our first meeting, Brenda listened and empathized with me, quickly realizing I came from a bullied marriage. I learned, also from our first meeting, that Brenda had my best interests as her top priority. While I was sometimes emotionally charged she didn’t allow emotions surrounding my case to negatively impact her actions or decisions. She was always calm, professional and reassuring. In one particular instance, mediation, she proved to be a stalwart. She held her ground on all aspects of the separation, even willing to go to court unless a fair, equitable settlement was reached. From beginning to end, Brenda carried herself professionally and gracefully. I always felt comfortable and confident talking with her and knowing that she would fight for the best outcome. While I hope the need never arises, I would highly recommend her to others.

From my first meeting with Brenda, over a year before my husband's filing for divorce, I knew I could talk comfortably and openly with her...even in my state of tears and uncertainty. She was always sympathetic, supportive, and tough (on my behalf)! All correspondence was shared with me and any questions I had were answered almost immediately! She even travelled through a snow storm for a court date she couldn't get to...and didn't charge me for her time and extreme effort! She worked well with the opposing attorney and only spoke highly of him. She has my greatest respect and endorsement!

While I would not have chosen to have gotten divorced or had the need to work out parenting plan and separation agreement issues, I am so thankful that Ms. Story represented me. She was honest, straightforward, quick to respond to all of my questions and concerns, professional, friendly, and was impressive in her knowledge of Colorado family law. She guided me through the steps in the process and kept me on track during a devastating time. She also made sure I thought deeply about what I--and my children--needed when it would have been easy to let my now-ex-husband intimidate me into agreeing to what was best for him. I have the utmost respect for Ms. Story. I also believe her pricing structure was fair and always easy to understand. I could not have asked for better and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or who has need of legal counsel about separation, custody, or child support issues. I know she was in my corner at a vulnerable time for me, and I will always be grateful for that and for her. I highly recommend her and her friendly, professional staff.

Brenda Storey is an outstanding attorney. She represented me during my court case concerning custody and parenting time. When I first thought about going to court, the idea of choosing a lawyer was overwhelming since I lived in TX and my twins were in Denver, CO. Brenda and her team made me feel at ease and she explained the process to me. I felt comfortable with her and she immediately won me over. I continue to be impressed by how much she cares about children and what is best for them. She has a passion for what she does! I can honestly say Brenda was always there to answer any questions I had concerning my case. She is professional, has integrity and is available when needed. There are not too many attorneys out there that will call you back ASAP but she is one of them! I never worried about being so far away (in TX) because I trusted her completely. Due to her hard work and dedication, we were able to win my custody case. My twin sons now live with me and my family in TX. Choosing Brenda Storey as my attorney was the first step to one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I recommend Brenda Storey; you will not be disappointed!

Ms. Storey initially represented me several years ago during my divorce, and more recently during post-decree modifications in parenting time and other parenting agreement matters. In between those two periods, I worked with another attorney on a stand-alone child support matter, and yet one other who represented me in the early stages of the post-decree modifications before I turned representation over to Ms. Storey. My experiences with other attorneys have given me the advantage of perspective on Ms. Storey's unique strengths, which are based in her integrity, sharp advocacy, knowledge, professionalism, straightforward communication, strategic foresight, and perhaps most importantly, her care and regard for the children ultimately impacted by these matters. I have a true appreciation for Ms. Storey's ability to stay multiple steps ahead of the process as it pertains to court proceedings and opposing counsel. She's a terrific attorney, and a key resource throughout every part of the process.

I worked with Ms. Storey on a complicated divorce & child custody case. From the moment I met Ms. Storey I felt I had absolutely made the right choice of attorney. She is very knowledgeable, is able to set realistic expectations (I found that very important throughout the process, that she was upfront with me vs. telling me what I would have liked to hear) and she is very committed to her clients (as is the entire firm of McGuane & Hogan).
Ms. Storey always answered emails and phone calls promptly; and I was kept informed about the process and next steps. Ms. Storey and her team never missed a deadline throughout the process, and would even send me gentle reminders a few days out to make sure all necessary paperwork would be submitted in a timely manner. She is very professional and shows respect to whomever she deals with - we went to court and I was very impressed by her professionalism when interacting with the judge, opposing counsel, my ex spouse and any employees of the court. She is compassionate, but can also be tough when need be.
I am very, very thankful that Ms. Storey was the one to represent me in this case, and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in need of a divorce/child custody attorney.
