Great Attorneys!
It’s been great working with Patrick and Monica on my case - they have extensive knowledge of the family court system here in CO, and have been true advocates for my family!

The Best Possible Team for the Best Possible Outcome
I did a web search in need of a family lawyer. After speaking to several over the phone and being told there was no hope for my case, I received a call from this firm encouraging me to come in and at least do a review. After sitting with them for 30 minutes, they were able to find a few loopholes and possible avenues and in only a few months had my case won. David Collins was my attorney and I have no doubt this gentleman has met his calling. He is smart, kind and does whatever it takes to advise you in the best possible ways and gives you hope. His team meets and reviews your case regularly so you get the power of a firm behind the attorney. The support staff is efficient, thorough and friendly. I have no words to begin to thank them for all they did and they are worth every penny. You can't do it alone, so why not have a valuable team in your corner. Highly recommend them!

April D. Jones and the Jones Law Firm team
I love April Jones’ Law firm. I have used them on several occasions and I will not be going back to any other attorneys per previous experience. I love that April is direct and does what needs to be done to get the job done.

This is who you want to represent you!
In the most difficult time of my life, April Jones was there for our family. I am SO thankful for April and her team! She personally went well above and beyond the call of duty on my custody and child support case and helped me out of a nightmare situation with my ex-wife and restored balance and fairness in my family. I am happy, and most importantly the kiddos are happy!! Thank you SO much April for all you do!

April was great
Although it is not a fun and easy process, April and the Jones Law Firm team was able to streamline the process for me as I went through this rough situation. April’s expertise and empathy was fantastic. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable attorney to reach out.

Top Tier Law Firm!
I want to thank the April Jones Law Firm for the hard work that they went through to assist me with my case. I retained their firm after being served with a Motion for Retroactive child support. The Petitioner had filed the motion seeking an additional 16 years of child support for the years before she had originally filed a motion to initiate child support. Throughout the entire process, April and her team provided the most professional service imaginable, all while making me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. I would call it "personal professionalism". Both April and David Collins attended the hearing, and were prepared to represent my case, making sure to let me know that we were fully prepared for whatever may occur. The Court agreed that I was subject to retroactive child support and ordered me and the Petitioner to attend mediation. Before I actually attended mediation with the Petitioner, the Court, on its own volition, revisited our motion to dismiss the motion for retroactive child support. They originally filed a motion to dismiss the motion for retroactive child support because the Petitioner had waited more than two years to seek the retroactive child support after becoming aware that she could. The Court agreed with our legal argument and event cited the law in her dismissal of the motion for retroactive child support. Without their assistance and due diligence, (not to mention, their dedication to obtaining a fair judgment) I would have been faced with a dire financial situation. I can say with certainty that I would not have had the same outcome without their representation. They were thoughtful throughout the whole process, and made sure to treat me as an individual with specific needs and concerns, and not just another case file. Everyone on their staff was helpful and responsive; I never felt like I was just another case number in a queue of other cases. I always received prompt callbacks and emails, and never felt like I was not a priority.

April is a top notch family attorney. She goes above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome for her clients. She’s the fourth attorney I’ve worked with and the first to get results. I’d highly recommend her.

April Jones is a very passionate and knowledgeable lawyer
My husband contacted Ms. Jones after being served with restriction of parenting time. It was a very stressful time for our family and Ms. Jones was able to help us successfully navigate the court case and win. She is passionate, knowledgeable and guided us every step of the way. We are very grateful for Ms. Jones assistance during a very difficult time.

Awesome Service
April Jones Law Firm has been the epitome of professional, ethical and fair. I have used this law firm on two occasions. During both court cases she advocated, not only for me and my best interest, but for all involved to come to a reasonable solution with my children’s best interest at heart. Throughout the course of my cases April Jones Law Firm was able to adapt to the ever changing legal environment with ease and grace. She was always thoroughly briefed on laws pertinent to my situation and I always felt like a priority whenever we communicated. I adamantly recommend this law firm to anyone I feel could benefit from her services. April Jones Law Firm leads the industry because she is relatable, knowledgeable, organized and gets the job done well. Dan Robinson

Smart, caring and professional
I was referred to April Jones by a trusted source to handle a very difficult legal family matter. I was new to Denver and didn't know where to turn. After our initial consultation, I knew instantly she was the legal professional I wanted and needed to represent me. The case took close to 2 years to resolve (yes, the courts are that backed up). During our time together, she listened to me and advised me with the utmost of care. I was scared. I needed someone I trusted at a gut level and professional level. I needed an attorney who was wicked smart and honest. It's not fun to have a judge decide parenting time and financial matters. April didn't make empty, lofty promises that had no merit. We put together a plan and I followed every suggestion she made. I was never left wondering what was next. To this day, I have implemented that standard into my own business. I'll never forget the day the judge granted my wishes with April by my side. The attorney on the other side looked like a rookie in comparison. If you are in need of a family law attorney, I give my 5 star recommendation to April Jones. She helped me using her expert knowledge, compassion and class. Just what I needed in a time when I couldn't have been more vulnerable. Sign me #Forevergrateful

Very grateful
I cannot be more happy with the April Jones Law Firm! I hired her in 2012 for disputes over child support and other items, we had to go to court 3 times on separate matters and every time we were successful. April is very knowledgeable of the law and will not let you down. If I ever need a family law attorney I will call April Jones.

One of the Best in Town!
Jones Law Firm played a vital role in my divorce as well as to my custody agreement. April was able to lead me in the direction, asking many questions, and ultimately helped me see both sides and the effects of custody. Her experience allowed her to give me the good, bad and ugly and how to protect myself as well as my children. There are still times, when I can pick up the phone and ask her specific questions (as the kids are getting older) and how the law views specific issues. She is very knowledgeable, tenacious, hard working and really cares about all her clients, especially the kids. I couldn't have come this far without her.

Saved my ass!!!!
April settled my case literally out in the courthouse hallway. I had a landlord that failed to make promised repairs to my apartment. I was paying for a two bedroom,two bathroom place but only one bathroom worked. He said he would repair it when I moved in but 7 months went by and he was still making excuses. He lived in hawaii, the apartment was in california and he used that as his excuse. I decided to stop paying him until he fixed the bathroom I had BEEN paying for. After 3 months of that he arrived at my apartment and decided to take me to court rather than fix the bathroom and collect back rent which I had been holding onto. April negotiated a deal before we went into court for an immediate cash payment for 1 month and I could take a week to move out. My landlord accepted and a possible unlawful detainer ruling was avoided. I was able to use the 2 months rent I still had to find another apartment which would have been much harder to do with a unlawful detainer on my record.

Ms. Jones is sharp, quick and strong
Ms. Jones was my attorney in 2002. She is sharp, quick and strong and we won my case decisively. Ms. Jones represent me again on another issue in 2010-2011. Based on my observation, Ms. Jones is sharper and stronger and has attained greater knowledge and insight. I have noticed that Ms. Jones desires to win each case with integrity. She cares about her client's welfare at all times. Ms. Jones' best quality as an attorney is her ability to take charge; she is quick witted and responsive. I have recommended Ms. Jones to my friends and co-workers. – M.K.

Excellent attorney to have on your side!
I needed a tough attorney as I had been bullied by my Ex. and his attorney in the past. April was definitely everything I wanted and needed, she went the extra mile for me, I could not have been more pleased. She got me everything I wanted and then some. If you need someone that's going to fight for you for a reasonable price call April!

April helped me get back to my normal life
After wasting 10 months and $14k to another law firm, I decided to reach out to April. That was a decision that changed my life forever. My first appearance at the court (have made several appearance before with my old law firm) with April gave me my first victory (that so much deserved). She stood with me through out the entire divorce process and she was also able to stand up to my ex's attorney. Though I was dragged several other times, April was able to get what is reasonable for me, my ex and my daughter. I have a lot of respect for April and I will recommend her to my friends and family any time.

Professional, Experienced, Agressive, Direct, and Caring
Ms. Jones is very thorough in her process, which produces results. She took the time to understand my situation, and address the concerns I had about my scenario and court proceedings. She is direct, and professional, yet manages to bring a sense of calm to an otherwise un-nerving situation. She is also registered with the BAR association in two states (California and Colorado), which happened to be perfect for my case/situation. Anyone who is facing something with civil and family court, I would highly recommend her to you, as she will not beat around the bush like many attorneys do. Instead, she gives direct information, and gives a plan of attack that has achievable and measurable results. With her help, I was able to get a fair share of time with my daughter, despite the CO state standards of a child custody for children under the age of two. I am now able to be the engaged father that I always wanted to be with my daughter. I owe so much gratitude to April and her associates and staff. Thank you, April, Kevin, and Hannah!
