Kara W. Edmunds

About me

I understand that you will have many excellent choices as you search for an attorney to help you.  I encourage and invite you to consult with several attorneys before you make this important decision. Perhaps learning a little about me as a person will give you some insight into the type of advocate I will be on your behalf.  First, I am fiercely loyal and committed:  I have been happily married to my husband, Spencer (a teacher), since 1991.  We are enjoying raising our four children, Spencer Jr. and triplets Hays, Charlotte and Coleman.  Second, I am energetic:  we moved our family to Colorado in 2010 to enjoy the outdoor opportunities that our whole family so enjoys – biking, skiing, and hiking.    I learned to swim in 2011 so that I could start participating in triathalons; as both a lawyer and an individual, I am extremely competitive!  Since I love a good challenge, swimming has become my favorite sport.  I am an active volunteer with the University Hill Elementary PTA and Boulder Junior Cycling because I love children, education, and sports.
