About Me


My current practice focuses on family law matters, including divorce/dissolution of marriage/legal separation; children's issues, including child custody and relocation issues; guardianship of children and adults; child's legal counsel; family support; serving as a court-appointed and privately appointed attorney for children and at-risk adults; mediation; collaborative law; and related matters.


With a background as a registered nurse since 1981, I have been assisting families in crisis for many years. My family law experience initially arose out of my practice in professional liability defense litigation. Many of my clients requested and needed representation in family law matters. I realized I had an interest in family law as I had personally experienced the painful break-up of my own parents as a child, had been divorced, and had been a step-parent for many years. My interest revolved around trying to assist others through this difficult process in as economical a manner as possible.


As a result, I obtained training in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation and collaborative law. My law firm continues to provide mediation and collaborative law services in addition to traditional litigation to our clients.


My practice currently focuses on resolving high conflict matters in family law, health-related, and elder law issues in both the traditional and collaborative models. I also serve as court appointed counsel and as a Guardian ad Litem in the Combined Courts of El Paso and Teller Counties for adults and minors with exploitation, abuse, guardianship, and incapacity issues.


My past experience includes litigating a wide variety of matters involving health care, banking, mental health, child care, construction/real estate development, and business issues. I served as counsel to the medical, dental, clinical laboratory, mental health, and hospital communities, including the representation of Los Angeles County, California, owned and operated medical centers, and in the quality assurance, risk management, and ethics areas. I served as in-house counsel and chief operating officer of a medical group, Out-Patient Anesthesia Services, Inc., and served as a member of the Los Angeles Superior Court arbitration panel.


My past experience also involved defense litigation of mental health facilities, child care facilities, grocery stores, motor vehicle liability matters, and business/contract litigation, as well as lawsuits concerning the design and construction of residential and large commercial buildings. As a past President and Vice-President of a real estate development corporation, I have been involved in the acquisition and development of single family housing and commercial retail centers.

  • Christelle C Beck

    I endorse this lawyer. I worked opposite of Lynn on a difficult and complex case that had a part in El Paso District Court and another part in the U.S. District Court of Colorado. She was very professional and worked extremely hard to get the case to a fair resolution for both sides with very little available time afforded.
