    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara more than 3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Child Custody matter.

    Back in 2003 I had a case where I was being alienated from my child and had not seen him for two years. I had three different lawyers and seemed to get nowhere. The frustration and loss was overwhelming. I was fortunate to find Mrs. Lunt and everything changed. I now have my child full time and have a great relationship. I know everyone's case is different. The biggest difference was with Mrs. Lunt she was sincere, just taking with her you get a since that she cares about her clients and is very knowledgeable and has a passion for what she believes in. I recommend her and actually just call her office and find out for your self. I recently needed her services again and she was again very helpful. The best part it's been ten years and the receptionist remembered me and so did Mrs. Lunt. I thank you for the exceptional service and you are five stars in my book.
    Sincerely
    Shane

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.

    Barb is an incredible lawyer. She was knowledgeable concerning all aspects of my complicated case. She was supportive emotionally when I needed it. She helped me to save on fees whenever possible. She is extremely professional in her presentation in court, during depositions, etc. I would recommend her to anyone needing legal representation for domestic relation cases.

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara 1-6 months ago.
    • Barbara handled my Child Custody matter.

    Barb was an absolutely fantastic lawyer. She was very quick to respond to my emails and my phone calls. She was very upfront and honest with me about options and situations concerning my case. She always asked me what I wanted done in the case and never said or did anything that I did not approve of. Barb was also very knowledgeable about the laws and court systems. She put my mind at ease about the very stressful situation I was going through.

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara more than 3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    During a very emotional and difficult divorce, Barb was the level headed, knowledgeable and professional representative I needed. Faced with some interesting challenges, she handled my case with compassion and the utmost respect of privacy. Her understanding of the law helped resolve potential issues and conflicts and her guidance helped lessen the stress and burden of humiliation I could have suffered. Professional in every approach, Barb encouraged me to to have confidence in the legal system and to trust her judgment. In the end, she not only helped negotiate a successful agreement that was most beneficial for me and my daughter, but we forged a friendship I am grateful for. Since our initial meeting and working relationship, Barb has continued to take interest in my family and offer support as a friend. It's not everyday that you meet someone you can trust with your case, but Barb is an acception. I have recommended her services to others and will continue to do so.

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara 1-3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I have had more than my share of "lawyers" - Barb has been the light at the end of my tunnel, even when there "appears" to be no end in sight. Barb is the attorney that is really on my (your) side. I sleep better, have better weekends, and never go more than a day or two without understanding exactly where my case is. Barb returns phone calls (or has them returned by her assistant). Barb understands my history, and completed many of my sentences, before I even completed my thoughts (just because - SHE GETS IT). She's fair, she's knowledgable, she's SURE, she's interested, she's diligent, she's a REAL lawyer. I've never had occassion to "second-guess" her, because I've always been clear on the road ahead; never a question unanswered or answer made without consideration of the end in mind. My mind is at ease...she's highly regarded by other attorneys (just ask your present attorney, or the next attorney you encounter). I've talked to some of the "best" (per their peers in Larimer County), and when I mention her name (Barb Lunt Ornelas); each and EVERY one has said to me....."YOU ARE IN GOOD HANDS....!"

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara 1-3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I would ( and already have) referred my friends to Barb. During my divorce she was very supportive, emotionally and professionally. When I met Barb I was very bruised and battered. Not where I thought I'd be in my life. She assured me that she could help me through this horrible time in my life. I asked her to be fair, diligent and to work with integrity. She didn't let me down. I trusted her to know the law and my rights, because I didn't. She works with a respectful attitude toward the other spouse's attorney. But believe me, she also knows when and how to step up, and not let her clients rights be trampled on. She also prayed with me, before several joint meetings with my husband. That alone gave me peace, strength, and confidence that she was the perfect lawyer for me. I also want to give thanks for Michelle, Barb's secretary. Her kind and encouraging words helped me through many a dark day. So thanks Barb for your expertise, your strength and caring in my case. I feel everything went as it was intended to be. I can get on with my life and know there are better days to come.

    • I recommend Barbara Ornelas.
    • I hired Barbara more than 3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Ms. Ornelas was able to explain to me what my rights were going through the divorce. She was able to keep me realistic to decisions that had to be made. She was fair and knowledgable about the law. She cared about me and my case, and put me and my child on a level of importance. She was kind and listened, really listened to me. She is honerable and a valuable lawyer to have on your side.
