Dawn Rodgers is an OUTSTANDING attorney!!!
Hiring Dawn and her firm was the best decision ever! Before my custody case, I was very concerned that my chances of retaining custody of my son was slim at best. Dawn personally reassured me that if I did my part in getting all crucial information to her regarding the case that we would have every fighting chance of winning. Dawn's diligence and persistence shined in every aspect of my case and it showed. She is very good at what she does and have already and will continue to brag upon her and her team! Thanks Dawn for everything that you did for my son and I!

Help when you need it the most!
An attorney I really respect recommended Dawn. I am very thankful I picked Dawn to represent me through my divorce. She was flexible and listened to what I wanted, at the same time always quick and clear to point out whether an action was or wasn't in my best interest. I agree with other reviews here that Dawn is great about keeping the process moving and keeping you on point. This is critical at a time when you are undergoing such a stressful event and you need a good guide to show you the way. Dawn paints a clear picture of what is ahead and she and her staff are always responsive to questions. You will be in good hands with Dawn!

Great Lawyer
Dawn handled my divorce for me both efficiently and with sensitivity to my concerns the whole time. She is always on point with having things done and being able to answer questions. She is also very detailed in her biling so you know what you are paying for. I would recommend her in the strongest terms.

Divorce and Custody
I would highly recommend anyone going through these difficult times to call Dawn Rodgers! Dawn was involved in my case for a little over two months, I could not have asked for better representation. Dawn kept me focused and worked very hard on my case. I am confident she will work equally as hard for you.

Divorce
Dawn consulted with me on my divorce. She was able to explain clearly some of legal implications of each decision I made. She also helped give an outside perspective to what was reasonable to ask for, and how to go about doing that. When I filed for divorce I felt much more confident in what was in the document, and that I had done my best to prepare for mine and my children's future.

Beyond Satisfied
Ms. Rodgers immediately took the time to get a thorough understanding of my situation. As soon as I hired her I felt a huge weight lifted off my chest. She made sure every basis was covered and was honest with me throughout the whole process. Dawn and her team were great to work with and always kept in communication. I initially hired her to defend me in a contempt of court case and was so impressed by her knowledge of the law and professionalism that I hired her for the remainder of my APR case. In my particular situation it was best that I had “full custody” and that is what I received.

Honest and Knowledgeable
Dawn did an excellent job with an issue I had regarding my separation agreement, so when I needed her expertise with regard to an issue that came up when DHS got involved I made no hesitation to call her. She explained what my options were to modify my ex husband's parenting time and any scenario that could occur. She was very honest about what she thought would work out best for me and my situation. Dawn is very knowledgeable with a lot of expertise with regard to family law. I would recommend her to anyone who is involved in a family case. I would give her a 10 if there were the option.

Amazing and Professional
Dawn represented me in a child custody case and all I can is "WOW" what an outstanding experience. Everyone from Dawn down to her staff kept me informed at all times, explained all the potential pitfalls and took the time to really understand me and get a firm understanding of my situation. Not only did Dawn keep me informed but I really felt a trust in her that I had not experienced with any other attorney. I recommend Dawn for all family law issues, You wont regret it.

Dawn Rodgers is exceptional!
In an extremely contentious and complicated case, Dawn fought to achieve fairness and safety for my kids. Every step of the way she knew the best way to move forward and always kept my kids best interests in the forefront. I have already made personal referrals and would refer her to anyone involved in a family case.

Dawn Rodgers is an excellent attorney!
I was involved in a highly contentious divorce and custody battle that got very complicated. Dawn was an excellent guide through the complexities of the courts and the Colorado Family Law system. Dawn’s strategy included repairing some mistakes that I had made when I foolishly thought I could handle the divorce without the assistance of an attorney. Dawn was able to help me regain some of the marital assets that I had given up by skillfully going through the details of my situation and proving that my ex had misrepresented certain details. My custody battle included undergoing a PRE and a DHS investigation as a result of false allegations against me. This was an unbelievably stressful time. Not only did Dawn support me in handling the emotions of this situation, she provided me with priceless advice on how to proceed through each step. Dawn worked seamlessly with my criminal defense attorney and aggressively defended me throughout the investigations. Her experience with these investigations helped turn destructive attacks into positive outcomes which ultimately helped the court rule in the kids’ and my best interests. Dawn was very good at making sure I was aware of the pros and cons of each option she presented me with. Dawn is very well versed in legal precedence and was very good at linking the specifics of my case to prior cases where the courts had previously ruled on situations like mine. It was very apparent that Dawn has taken the time to research case law and how to apply her knowledge to her clients’ situations. I believe Dawn to be an excellent strategist. On top of figuring out which case law would be most supportive of my situation, she also accounted for the strength and weaknesses of the opposing council and the judges on my case. She expertly used this knowledge to my benefit. We routinely discussed what our steps would be in response to possible opposing counsel actions or court rulings. Besides making sure I knew the risks and benefits each time I ran into a complication, Dawn was also very conscious of helping me to limit my costs. She was very good at letting me know what the approximate costs would be for each step so I could make a fully informed decision. I found this to be very valuable when I had to make a decision between my heart/emotions vs. financial risks/rewards. Dawn was very good at helping me stay grounded and make the choices that were in the best interests of my children and myself. Dawn was also very good at predicting what strategies the opposing counsel would pursue and we were able to prepare accordingly which also helped reign in the costs. All in all, Dawn was able to help me get almost everything I wanted to achieve. I could not be happier with the representation Dawn provided me with. She was vested in my case and helped me through a very painful situation. While I will likely need Dawn’s services in the future; I can take comfort in knowing that I have a true legal champion in my corner.

Excellent Family Law Attorney!
Dawn was referred to me by another attorney as being the one she would select if seeking a family law attorney. I appreciated Dawn's honest advise for best case and worst case scenarios for my situation. She was very prompt at returning phone calls and emails. I liked how she seemed to be very efficient at resolving my case. I would recommend her and would hire her again if ever needed in the future.

Dawn has been wonderful! Her knowledge and professionalism is unbeat in my book. We started with one matter in 2013 and I've continued to seek her on other matters through 2016. Thank you Dawn for getting me through emotional times as well resolutions I can be grateful for.

Dawn Rodgers, Esq. is a superlative attorney
I have hired approximately twelve law firms for a myriad of legal issues in the past. I met Dawn in February of 2013 after terminating a two month relationship with a very expensive law firm that advertised on the radio. In my opinion, I could not justify the cost-value of this previous firm. From the outset, Dawn’s value became self evident. Her attention to detail or fact was breathtaking and refreshing. She demonstrated a tireless work ethic with regards to my case. This coupled with her alert ability to work with opposing council, when required, ensured that all parties were pleased with the outcome of my specific case. With the previous law firms in mind, I consider Dawn the absolute best attorney I have worked with, period. I have, and will, enthusiastically recommend Dawn to family, friends and acquaintances in the future.
