What does an AVVO rating mean?  And why is Amy's so low compared to other attorneys here?  Well, an AVVO rating is just that - something AVVO came up with to try and help a potential legal client find a good attorney for them.  And that is great! You need a good attorney for your case! But, the downside is that the AVVO rating does not mean much when it comes to you and your case.  Someone can get a high AVVO rating merely by filling in every aspect of their profile - making sure to hit all the right "buttons" for AVVO.  


But, because I am an attorney that never requests anything from a client, because I work for them, I do not get many client reviews.  Therefore, my AVVO rating is lower.  Also, a high AVVO rating can be made by showing all the publications and speaking engagements an attorney does.  Again however, because I am an attorney that only works for my clients, not worrying about anybody but my client, I do not do speaking engagements, or publish articles.  Therefore, my AVVO rating is lower.


So what can you expect from me?  You can expect an attorney who only cares about you.  Someone who will always call you back.  Someone who works tirelessly to get what you want and deserve.  Interested?  Read on.


Before opening Travin Law, Amy represented hundreds of individuals while working for the Colorado State Public Defender. While there, she successfully defended DUI, misdemeanor, and felony cases at trial.  Amy's passion for defending those accused of crimes, is unending by truly believing individuals are innocent until proven guilty.  She loves being in the courtroom, advocating for her clients, litigating to win their issues, and giving them someone who will fight for them.


She was never a prosecutor and never wanted to be a prosecutor.  If you are accused of a crime, why would you hire someone who used to prosecute people in your same position? 

Amy's compassion and zealous advocacy extend to those dealing with divorce and custody issues.  She works diligently to help them through what is often times a difficult situation.  She knows what it is like to have to deal with family issues.  Whether she guides you through a simple mediation, or whether you need her in court, she is the lawyer to trust with your case.

| Hired Attorney
Very knowledgeable and compassionate attorney
Ms. Travin has assisted me in several of my legal needs. I've consulted with Ms. Travin on legal documents that I need assistance with concerning language and contract terms. She was very knowledgeable and helpful. She was able to convey complex legal concepts simply and clearly so that I could understand. Ms. Travin has represented me for a family law case. She helped us through a difficult time with compassion and care and fought for our desired outcome with professionalism and competence. I would highly recommend Ms. Travin.
