About Laura

Learn Laura’s areas of practice.

I am proud to admit that I knew family law was my calling 20 years ago when I started law school.  For the better part of the last  two decades, I have had the privilege to work with some of the finest people I have ever known -- as they face  the most difficult emotional challenges of their lives.  Luckily, through the relationships we build, I also get to hear of their successes moving forward -- graduations, the arrival of grandchildren, and new relationships.  I absolutely love my job!


When my partner Dan and I decided to start Ammarell Deasy, we didn't just pay lip service to the idea of "being different."  We work with two of the finest young attorneys in Colorado and a staff that is unmatched.  Located in the heart of the Denver Tech Center, we serve the needs of our clients throughout the metro area -- and find ourselves driving from Ft. Collins to the Springs when people need us.   There really is not anything we have not seen in family law -- and with 40 years' worth of courtoom experience, we are different.


If you think you could use our help -- or just want to run some ideas by us because you aren't sure of your options or you may not be quite ready to take that final step before asking a judge to help you end the pain, give us a call.  We promise your voice will be heard.  Give us the chance to let you see the difference.

Highly recommend!
I highly recommend this lawyer. Laura was able to simplify a very complicated divorce and very nicely diffused conflict in an very contentious situation. She was respectful to counsel and others she dealt with in our divorce on my behalf, and the judge LOVED her. She is great in court, but really tries hard to find solutions if they are possible. This type of lawyer is hard to find. I interviewed several lawyers and without question I would use her again and recommend her to my friends and family.

Great lawyer!
Laura did a wonderful job on my very difficult divorce, which included issues related to emotional and physical spousal abuse.

Cannot recommend
I did not get responsive, thorough, fair, or accurate representation to a difficult case.
Posted by anonymous | February 4, 2015
Passionate representation, when she gets around to it.
She's a powerful advocate. That is transcended by the fact that she is a horrible time manager, forgets to answer email, doesn't return calls, bills excessively and then blames her shortcomings on her staff. Her "passion" got her on our judges bad side more than once. I don't feel like she was respectful or tactful in her dealings with other parties and counsel. I rated her poorly overall because her lack of attention to detail caused me to lose our case. And it looks like I might have to pay legal expenses for the other side. Too many good lawyers out there that will listen to you and be your voice.

"I endorse this lawyer. She is one of the best family law attorneys in Colorado. As a clerk, I watched Laura on a trial and I knew then that I would like to work for her so I can learn from her the skill of being a great family law attorney."
Family Attorney | Jun 27
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Laura is -- without a doubt -- one of the finest family law attorneys in the State of Colorado. She was recently selected to serve on the Executive Council of the Colorado Bar Association's Family Law Section based on her experience and reputation among fellow practitioners. If I had a family law matter that needed the best handling available, Laura would be on the very short list of those attorneys I would contact."
