Knowledgable and Helpful during a difficult divorce
I was very appreciative of Hannah, her parralegal, and the whole atmosphere at this law firm. She helped me navigate the legal system while dealing with a child family investigation, multiple lawyers on the other side, and other issues that came up during our 7 months working together. Everyone that I speak to now said that this was a short time, compared to other cases that they knew of, with similar issues. I am thankful for Hannah and her team for always listening to my thoughts and concerns and fighting for the best possible outcome for me and my family.

Highly Recommend
Hannah Westmont is a wonderful lawyer and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs council. I was very nervous and full of anxiety starting my divorce process. She was patient and very understanding. I needed someone who would listen to me and put me at ease while giving sound, smart advice. Hannah has a gift for being calm and easy going but when it comes to handling legal matters, she does not mess around and does everything to help you be successful. She gets results. I trusted Hannah through the whole legal process and she was not only efficient and knowledgable, but kind and understanding when I had questions or concerns. I highly recommend Hannah Westmont as a lawyer for anyone.

Hannah Westmont is the most prepared, kind, thoughtful and effective lawyer.
Hannah Westmont was extremely respectful, patient and I felt my best interests were paramount. From the beginning she heard my entire story without judgement and with genuine interest, attention to detail and provided not only legal support, but also emotional support. Her "bedside manner" is incredibly nurturing yet professional. She was clear and direct. I felt that I was guided through the process and there were no surprises. She is incredibly intelligent and made all the right moves and guided me to handle a divorce with children in the best manner possible. The outcome was better than I could have imagined and the entire process from start to finish was incredibly speedy yet thorough. I am so happy I worked with Hannah Westmont and recommend her highly.

Highly recommended!! She is an outstanding lawyer.
I am very grateful to Mrs. Westmont as she was an amazing lawyer. She is very reasonable and thoughtful in her approach and throughout the entire court process I felt heard, respected and advocated for. Her commitment to her clients, and their children, is felt throughout the process. I deeply appreciated her approach to my case and ability to see through the chaos that can ensue during separations/divorces. She is very accessible and provides not only terrific legal support, she also deeply cares about her clients. She worked tirelessly on my case and I highly recommend her.

Very much recommended
Hannah was a delight to work with. She helped me in a divorce. Hannah returned calls and email promptly. I wished things to be amicable between the once-wife and me and Hannah was mindful of this in every interaction. Due to her excellent guidance everything went well. I definitely recommend you consider her expertise for your situation.

Client
Hannah is extremely personable and caring. She did an excellent job walking me through each step. She took the time answering questions no matter how big or small. I felt she cared about the outcome of my case and that kind of compassion goes a long way.

Fantastic!
Hannah did an amazing job. She was easy to work with and made the whole process tolerable. She was very clear and professional, while still making me feel comfortable. I hired her late in the process since my first counsel was not doing their job. She jumped right in and helped me feel so much better. We ended up in trial and she was amazing. She put the opposing counsel on their heals and we got the best outcome possible. She was a shark in the courtroom. Calm, cool and collected but definitely knew what she was doing. Couldn't have asked for a better layer.

Effective and Supportive
Ms. Westmont was very supportive and understanding during a difficult time in my life, but at the same time efficient and effective in her representation. She was firm with her negotiations and willing to try the case, although successfully negotiated a favorable settlement so that trial was not necessary. I would definitely recommend her to friends and colleagues.

The best!
Hannah has helped me tremendously over the last year. She even showed up to backfill for her coworker and was a pro. She was respectful and put both the judge and the opposing counsel in their place. I have been put through the ringer this last year and Hannah has been an amazing help.

Excellent Post Divorce Lawyer
Hannah and her whole firm has done their best to keep my family on track through a difficult post divorce. These issues are so difficult because the law isn't always the best way to deal with them and Hannah is skilled in dealing with high conflict individuals and getting the best possible outcome. We are ongoing, but things have been so much better than without her. I'm posting anonymously only because things are ongoing.

Professional, Intelligent, and Savvy
Hannah did a great job structuring my divorce terms and providing counsel through the proceedings. The contract provided a strong position from which to negotiate as post-divorce became contentious. Hannah methodically identified exposure and tailored our position accordingly. She presented options for post-divorce settlements and effectively managed both opposition and mediator to arrive at a great solution.

She’s the best.
I liked Hannah from the moment I met her. She’s very personable and has a good wealth of knowledge regarding family law in Colorado. Divorce is not easy for anyone and occasionally either party can lose their cool. Hannah handled my meltdowns with empathy and professionalism. She was extremely responsive to my calls and emails. Her paralegal Blenda is also excellent by holding my hand through the various requests from opposing counsel. They were both extremely patient and supportive. I recommend Hannah very highly.

Amazing
Hannah was very attentive and very respectful. Every case is different and she takes that fact very seriously. She understands all of the different family dynamics and how they play into different court cases. She cares about the legality side of separation and divorce but also cares about the emotional aspect to it as well. As with all divorces, things can become heated and contested quite quickly but Hannah always manages to be professional and courteous to the other party. She's very supportive and ALWAYS has her client's best interests in mind. She's always quick to respond to e-mails and phone calls and she always makes sure that every detail is covered. She also wants to make sure you know what you are getting yourself into, what your options are and that you understand all the legality issues regarding your case. I would recommend her to ANYONE going through a divorce.
