About me

Prior to joining the firm, Megan served as a Deputy District Attorney for the City and County of Denver, Colorado for three and a half years. Megan was appointed by Bill Ritter to run a specialized juvenile federal grant program at the District Attorney's Office wherein she gained invaluable experience in family related legal matters. Accordingly, Megan has extensive court experience trying cases as well as researching and arguing pre-trial matters, including complex legal motions. In 2003, Megan joined Gutterman Griffiths PC as a senior associate. In May 2005, Megan became a shareholder. During her time at Gutterman Griffiths PC, Megan has litigated, mediated and settled all types of family law cases, including dissolution cases, paternity actions, post decree cases, contempt citations, high asset cases, high conflict matters, dependency and neglect cases. Megan has also trained as a family law mediator and arbitrator. In 2006, Megan began a lecture series in Colorado on various family law issues.

While in law school, Megan clerked for the Honorable Larry J. Naves Chief presiding Judge in Denver District Court. Megan received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications with an emphasis in Mediation and Conflict Resolution from the University of Colorado at Boulder.

  • Lawrence Fulton King

    I unreservedly and enthusiastically endorse Megan. I have had the pleasure to work with her over many years on a number of challenging cases where I was the mediator and she represented one of the divorcing parties. Megan's easy empathy and extraordinary concern and care for her client is evident throughout her representation. At the same time, she is extremely bright and creative and she offers constructive and realistic approaches to settlement discussions -- a sometimes rare and enormously beneficial-to-the-client approach. I consider Megan one of a very few Denver area family law attorneys possessing the skills of client patience, focus and advocacy, settlement realism and creative brilliance. She is simply a uniquely talented family law attorney.

    Over the past 10 years I have referred many friends and clients to Megan and her office. Every person I refer to Megan ends up being very satisfied and thanking me for the introduction. Megan has the experience and expertise to handle the most complicated set of circumstances and the tenacity to stand up for her client's interest. She and her staff are truly there to help their clients get the best possible outcome. They are responsive to questions and follow through on all aspects of the case. She is well respected by not only opposing counsel, but also Judges across the state. I will continue to refer people who need the best divorce and family law attorney to Megan. She has my complete trust.
