STRONG LEGAL ADVOCACY. COMPETITIVE COST. FAMILY LAW ATTORNEY SERVING DENVER AREA. CALL FOR FREE CONSULTATION (720) 443-5715

Barlow Anderson moved to Colorado in 2011 to attend school at Denver University Sturm College of Law. After graduating in 2014, Barlow began work as an Associate Attorney at a highly reputable family law firm that specialized in fathers’ rights and large asset dissolution and allocation cases. While there, Barlow recognized an imbalance between the cost of legal representation and the clients’ needs and expectations.

Understanding much of the high cost of litigation comes from parties’ inability to proactively reach just and equitable resolution, Barlow worked toward equitable ends and kept his clients informed of their rights and responsibilities under Colorado law. After nearly two years, he began work as a Law Clerk to two District Court judges in the 18th Judicial District’s Douglas County. Assisting his judges in Criminal, Civil, Family, Probate, and Mental Health fields of law, Barlow discovered the importance of making the legal process clear and approachable to non-attorneys.

Barlow’s love for the law sprouted from personal experiences which led him to law school, but he looks for every opportunity to enjoy the real reason he moved to Colorado, his love of the outdoors.

An experienced outdoorsman, Barlow has been rock climbing, ice climbing, white water kayaking, mountain biking, and fly fishing for more than fifteen years. Whether hundreds of feet up granite cliffs or Colorado surfing (freestyle whitewater kayak surfing), he makes the most out of everything he does. But what he really looks forward to is training his now four year old son to join him on his crazy adventures.

A few times a month, Barlow teaches people to rock climb. Although he can’t get out as much as he likes to, he loves sharing his love for the sport to other people.

Barlow also has a love of Japanese culture and tradition. In addition to teaching himself Japanese language, he practices Kendo (Japanese fencing) and Iaido.

The best part about Barlow's life is his son. The six year old keeps him busy, but the two get to explore all the things they love together.

BARLOW GETS THE JOB DONE, HONESTLY AND PROFESSIONALLY
Barlow Anderson represented our family on a custody agreement. We were able to get through this painful process quickly and amicably. I would recommend Barlow to anyone needing family law. Awesome person to work with. Thank you Barlow.

Truly compassionate lawyer that cares about his clients
Barlow Anderson represented me at a post decree hearing. He came into my case after my previous lawyer made huge mistakes. Barlow did an excellent job getting up to speed on my case and knocked it out of the ballpark at my hearing. His previous experience working for judges in the 18th district really gave me the upper hand during litigation. Barlow knew specifically what judges expected, and what behaviors they liked and disliked from lawyers. Opposing counsel was overly aggressive. Barlow took the high road with opposing counsel and when we got to the hearing were caught off guard by Barlow's performance in the courtroom. He was incredible at cross examination and had opposing counsel stumbling from the constant objections. It was amazing to see. In addition, Barlow is very empathetic and truly cares about my wellbeing and my children's wellbeing. He is the most compassionate lawyer I have ever encountered and truly understands DV and how that effects his clients. Finally, Barlow has very reasonable fees and allowed me to participate in as much or as little of the litigation process as I wanted to. Truly a lawyer with a heart which is almost impossible to find nowadays. I only wish I had found Barlow 6 years ago when my divorce started. I would have saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in litigation during my high conflict divorce.

A lawyer with a good heart
Above and beyond! Barlow is an amazing person and an awesome lawyer, my divorce it wasn't easy for me at all and he help me, not just the legal part but also emotional and personal as well. He's a lawyer with a good heart, (you can't find those anymore). I took my time to find a good lawyer to represent me in court and it paid off, I saw his previous reviews and I decided to give him a call, to my surprise he answered the phone! Not another fancy secretary like other guys has, and he was so nice and cool to me, he gave me some kind of security and relief right away, this is not my first time hiring a lawyer, so I knew this is the right guy for the job. Thank you so much and thanks to the universe to help me find the right lawyer and amazing person. Thank you again Barlow.

Custody case
I chose Barlow for many reasons but one very specific reason would be how he handles his relationships with his clients and how he conducts business. He is very straightforward with how things work even if its uncomfortable. Barlow kept me very grounded when it came to my custody battle because i was a complete mess. He always looked out for my best interest. He guided me when I didn't understand when certain things would happen and is very knowledgeable. Most importantly, he is never out for your money, he does everything to make sure that he isn't putting you in situations where you would be "wasting" your money. Had multiple friends going through custody battles at the same time as me and I recommended Barlow every single time and would recommend Barlow a million times after. Thank you for always having my back throughout my custody case Barlow.

From Love
Mannnnn.... I had a situation where I couldn't even breathe. Thinking wasn't an option, I did try but I couldn't even sleep. I talked to so many lawyers, many conversations I paid a lot of money for. An angel sent me an angel, this man Anderson, though I use Barlow. He is quick to listen, his compassion is soft but strong enough to force you to focus when life is trying to take you deep under. He is a force of compassion and solution. I'd give this man an arm and leg if he needed them! My gratitude is obviously bias, but my words are real. Hopefully life doesn't knock you down, but if it does... call this man, he'll lift you up without you needing to ask. He is a God send.

Caring for a client to another level.
Barlow has went above and beyond for me in my case. What is amazing about him is that instead of just doing everything for me or leaving me out to dry he takes time to fully educate me on the process and options. Fully guides me through scenarios and possibility of different outcomes. Last but not least he never sugar coats anything. In which for a person like me matches my communication style. I have hired him and will continue to hire and recommend him in the future. Thank you for being an awesome and just an overall amazing person.

Custody
Oh my gosh an attorney that will respond promptly is a hard feat to accomplish but I found the one who will and not make a client feel like you are putting him out or your time isn’t important. I am very satisfied thus far in my case. Mr BArlow is also very quick to get things filed with the courts so things can move along as quickly as the courts allow. I would just like to thank him for his true concern for the well being of my child and my needs.

Amazing!
Barlow Anderson was/is nothing short of amazing! From the moment I contacted him just for questions to the whole process of a ugly custody battle with my child’s father. He was very patient, understanding & kind. He was up front with me about every step to steer me in the right direction. If I had to do it all again, I would choose Barlow all over again!

Awesome lawyer
I’ve been having multiple problems with a recent lawyer that ended up basically taking my money from me! I was kind of in a bind until I met me Barlow! Great lawyer! Answers my calls even when he’s busy just to say I can’t talk I’ll call you later! Says he’s going to do something and he get it’s done. Also no beating around the bush he gives advice like it is! Couldn’t be more happy to have him as my lawyer great job!

Barlow, is a get stuff done phenomenally smart attorney.
Barlow, is a get stuff done phenomenally smart attorney. I can't believe what a great job he did for me! This is a real post from a real person. I did a lot of research searching for an attorney. A lot of fake reviews out there this one is not. I was referred Barlow by a different attorney who was too busy at the time. I'm so blessed. He is level headed guy that gets stuff done. The day I asked to file it was done in the court on the website by 3:00 that afternoon. I had a very tough case. He guided me through it and I can’t be any happier. You can't go wrong choosing Barlow.  I can’t believe how hard he worked for me. I was very impressed during his cross-examination. I couldn't believe the way he worded things in court it was amazing. Poor guy had to put up with me and a really tough Situation. Truly honest no mess around kind of guy not a lot of people can say that about an attorney. Not only is he a very good attorney he's a really good person. I could tell from the time we had our first conversation. I interviewed a lot of attorneys. Barlow is a master of his craft!

Common Law Marriage, WIN
Without Mr Anderson's help, I would not have won a very difficult common law marriage case. He was able to help get a crucial piece of evidence entered into the record that not only impeached the key witness but made it clear they had actually perjured themselves. He knows his way around the courtroom and rules of evidence, a must if a case goes to hearing or trial. To top things off, he genuinely cares about helping people and interacting with him is very pleasant, an unexpected bonus when dealing with an extremely stressful situation. I will not hesitate to call Mr Anderson if any future issues arise and I will certainly recommend him to any family and friends as well.
