David Littman

About me

Littman Family Law is not your typical brass and glass law office.  We are located on the edge of downtown Denver in a restored Victorian house.  Our office is dog friendly and comfortable for our clients.  Our practice is 100% family law and includes divorce, custody, and adoption, as well as collaborative law and mediation. 


My hobbies include travel, underwater photography, baseball and our dogs.  I also enjoy cooking. 


After many years of practice and several years serving as a magistrate, I firmly believe that the best solutions to family law problems rest with the parties involved, rather than the court and the experts.  Only in rare cases is it necessary to have a court resolve the most intimate and private issues facing by a family in the process of change.  We strive to empower our clients to be actively involved in their cases by educating them about the difficult choices that have to be faced and offering the best options available.
