20+ YEARS EXPERIENCE IN DIVORCE, FAMILY LAW, AND CRIMINAL DEFENSE/DUI. HERE TO LISTEN AND HELP YOU PRACTICING IN COLORADO AND WYOMING.

Todd joined Peak Legal Services, LLC as a partner in November 2016. Todd has been a licensed attorney in good standing to practice in all Colorado courts since 2001. He has tried cases throughout metro Denver and beyond, from Burlington to Eagle, and Fort Collins to Colorado Springs. Doug and Todd met more than ten years ago as adversaries in a serious felony trial. They have longstanding mutual respect for each other’s professionalism, experience and demeanor. They are pleased to have the opportunity to work together to obtain the best results for clients of Peak Legal Services, LLC.


Todd graduated from the University of North Dakota in 1998 and moved west for law school, graduating from the University of Utah. After falling in love with Colorado, he and his wife moved to Denver immediately after graduation. After passing the bar in October 2001, Todd began working for a solo practitioner in Denver on criminal defense, legal malpractice and bankruptcy matters. However, Todd soon found he is most passionate about defending clients in criminal cases who must face the power of the State.


Todd honed his trial and litigation skills in criminal cases. He then branched out several years ago to family law, working at a high-profile domestic relations firm for nearly 10 years. During that period, Todd also tried more then 30 criminal cases, both felonies and misdemeanors, and represented family law clients in countless contested hearings throughout Colorado.


Todd enjoys the story telling aspect of a trial practice, relishing the opportunity to explain his client's situation to either a judge or jury and to collaborate with, advise and zealously represent clients to achieve best possible result. Todd also is highly experienced and knowledgeable in guiding clients through the labyrinthine procedures of family law. This includes, for example, working with Child and Family Investigators and Parental Responsibility Evaluators to help his clients see their children as much as possible. Todd also has extensive expertise working preparing his clients for participating in Business Valuations and property Appraisals to minimize or maximize their property settlements.


Todd is committed listening to you and helping you with your legal issues and achieving the best possible outcome given your case and your specific goals.

Competent, Calm Presence
Todd was very knowledgeable in divorce law and in all that was needed in my case. Immediately, I felt heard by him as he listened to my needs, and felt reassured by his calm demeanor. He would remind me what was important and what was worth pursuing, and what was not worth the time to argue about. He and his assistant were always on top of things, always informing me of the next steps, and explaining with patience what to do. I never felt rushed, and never felt that it was only about billing his time. He was very fair in his fees.

Todd Narum Helped Me Navigate a Divorce
I contacted Todd to represent me in a divorce from my wife where we have two young children. This was my first time filing for divorce and I had many questions. Todd took a very professional non judgmental approach and helped me through each step of the process. As a father it helped knowing Todd had vast experience in representing my rights with my children.

Fast and Easy Divorce Settlement
I hired Todd to help me with my divorce. He met with me the day after I called him and he thoroughly explained the entire process to me. After hiring him he kept on top of the case and really took the worry out of the entire situation. He worked with me to get the separation agreement and parenting plan drafted quickly to reflect the compromises I reached with my ex and made this very easy. While I hope never to need him for another divorce, I do hope to work with him further in the future and I have already referred people to him.

Todd has been representing me in a high conflict series of family law issues for nearly 4 years. While his approach can sometimes seem cautious, it has never harmed us, and he knows how to win.

Peace of mind, big problem solved quickly
I have known Todd for several years so thankfully I knew who to call when I opened a letter from Douglas County Sheriff Dept. stating they had a warrant for my arrest! Todd was readily available to assist, took the appropriate action, and resolved the mistaken identity case with Douglas County Sheriff Department. Todd saved me many worry filled hours of dealing with this, and allowed me peace of mind as we worked through the legal details. Thank you Todd!

Excellent lawyer!
I worked with Todd on a defense for an assault case. I am an out of state physician and he ensured that the resolution we got would not impact me professionally. He minimized my visits to Denver and guided me through the process with kindness and professionalism. Highly recommend him.

Todd is not just a divorce and family litigation lawyer, he’s also a great DUI lawyer.
I tested every skill Todd had as a dui lawyer and I think he gained some new ones by the time he was finished keeping me out of jail. Two dui’s in two different states 11 months apart, broken probation with 60 days in jail hanging over my head. It wasn’t cheap to stay out of jail but well worth it. Not drinking and driving is much cheaper, so is Lyft and Uber. After all said and done those two dui’s cost 40,000$. If I ever look at a bottle again I will ask myself if it’s worth 40g’s not including all the family problems too.

A Great Lawyer...END of STORY
Todd represented me an a way that every attorney should. Honestly, Truthfully, and most of all with Conviction. He's not scared of telling the truth, even if you don't want hear it. What else can you say? I have, and will, continue to recommend Todd to anyone that needs fair and equal representation.

Contraband in DIA Airport
Attorney Todd Narum was exactly what I needed during this legal experience. I have never been in legal trouble before so he coached me through the whole process and really made things quite simple from our very first phone call consult. I hired him very shortly after. I made a huge and honest mistake traveling through DIA... I forgot that my handgun was in my carry on. I was charged with "Prohibited Contraband in DIA" .. By hiring Attorney Narum, the goal was to have the charged removed from my record and case sealed. With a plea agreement settled and Attorney Narum's guidance, that is exactly what happened. I am forever grateful to Attorney Narum and can not say thank you enough to he & Bonnie (his paralegal) for their help. Attorney Narum was very knowledgeable, calm, assertive and responsive. It was a very scary situation for a young girl and he talked me through everything, making me feel confident and comfortable handling legal issues. Double check your bags everyone, but if you forget... hire Attorney Todd Narum!

Great experience and representation
My family and I hired Todd Narum as our Criminal Defense Lawyer for my son. Todd was very helpful and understanding with our case, he did everything to have our case dismissed and for that we appreciate him and are so thankful of him. He is the best! I would highly recommend him.
