The best!
Robin helped turn a seemingly impossible situation into the best possible outcome for my child. She is firmly honest and assertive when the situation calls for it. However, Robin never led me down unnecessarily adversarial roads. So happy I found her on this site!!

Outstanding attorney!
Robin guided me through a difficult divorce with confidence, grace, experience and intelligence. Not only is she a no BS attorney, she is fierce and compassionate at the same time. I was extremely well-represented and lucky to have found her in a sea of sharks.

Compassionate and Professional
When one goes through a divorce, it's easy to let one's emotions drive the train. Robin managed to be completely empathetic to my feelings while still keeping things in perspective as to what ultimately mattered. I think a lot of attorneys stay detached so they can stay professional, or they get too emotionally involved in their clients situation. I'll scenarios are completely understandable in my opinion , but Robin does neither. She's warm yet professional. I can't recommend her highly enough

Great Attorney
When I needed a divorce attorney, Robin’s name came to me from four different people, and none of them knew each other. It was the best decision I made to hire her. She was always quick to respond to questions and upfront in explaining my options. She helped me through the most difficult time in my life and got me the best possible settlement. I have recommended Robin to several friends and would continue to recommend her to anyone who needs a GREAT divorce attorney.

Forever Grateful
I am forever grateful to have Robin’s legal expertise, compassion, and strength as a fundamental pillar in my support team. Robin is quick to respond to my needs, she provides me with candid advice on possible options and outcomes, she prioritizes my well-being, and she executes my decisions with poise and respect. Her compassionate and unwavering guidance throughout the arduous divorce process, allowed me to confidently stand on the other side. Robin is surrounded with a knowledgeable staff and experienced partners, who are dedicated in supporting each other and their clients. I have and will continue to highly recommend Robin Beattie to anyone who needs counsel in Family Law.

My experience couldn't have been better!
I hired Robin Beattie to assist me with my divorce and I honestly couldn't have been any happier with my experience with her and her firm. She not only absolutely killed it (the agreement she was able to get me was unbelievably good), but most importantly Robin was such an amazing person to work with during such a difficult time. I've even reached out to her a couple times since my divorce with questions and she always gets right back to me with answers and options. She had been referred to me by a friend who had the same wonderful experience with her and I have and will refer her to anyone who is looking for professional legal help.

Highly recommend
Robin has represented me in two high-conflict cases in the past four years. Her calm expertise and empathy were crucial in helping secure a good resolution. I would recommend her and her team to anyone in a similar situation.

The most amazing, caring and effective lawyer I've ever had (and I have had more)
I was in a very tough place in my life, as many people that need an attorney are. My previous counsel was the worst of it: unresponsive, unprepared, uncaring, and generally unsuccessful. By the time that Robin Beattie took over my case, I likened it to trying to turn the Titanic yet she succeeded. She was able to do more for me than I ever could have dreamed of. Her level of expertise is unparalleled. I will never use anyone else for my legal needs ever. She and her staff were responsive when I needed them, caring when I just needed some compassion, and successful in every issue that I put in front of them. I would recommend Robin Beattie and her law office to absolutely anyone for anything. She has handled multiple issues for me, and where one partner has a deeper knowledge they ensure they work together to serve the best interests of the client.

Phenomenal Attorney
This review is in reference to the legal firm of Polidori, Franklin, Monahan, and Beattie office, but more specifically about my experience with Robin Beattie, a partner in the firm. I was from Grand Junction, CO looking for an attorney who had experience in domestic violence. I found Robin online and asked if she would represent me even though it would be long distance, she in Denver and me in Grand Junction. That distance meant that everything would have to be conducted over email and/or phone. During the course of our association, Robin has been an invaluable person in the journey to help myself and my then 7-month-old child escape my abusive ex-husband and regain our lives with the knowledge that he would remain in our lives because of our child. Robin was an ear for my rants when I was exhausted battling my ex-husband. She was a variable encyclopedia of legal knowledge when I asked her to help me with conventional and unconventional requests. She was able to ferret out what was most important to me in the custody/divorce battle and she was like a boa constrictor going after a kill to get the outcome I needed. The end result was that Robin got the desired outcomes for me. Due to her invaluable legal advice, I did not inadvertently make my situation worse and because of her advice, I was praised by the Judge. One of the many things I continue to appreciate about Robin is she is very upfront with me about the reality of my custody situation. She does not beat around the bush and try to spend your money for the sake of spending it. She tells you the options and you get to decide if it is important to you or not to pursue it legally. One of my requirements was the utmost veracity when it came to my case and she definitely met that requirement. Robin is also very conscientious and detail oriented when it comes to writing motions and stipulations. I always asked Robin to write them, over my ex-husband's inept attorney, so that they were done well. I did not actually meet face-to-face with Robin until the evening before my trial in Grand Junction. Although this is not typical, we made it work because she would FaceTime with me to go over materials and she was always available to email or take my calls when I was panicking about something my ex-husband did or said. She even went so far as to help me learn how to appropriately communicate with my ex-husband so that it would help the situation. As far as I'm concerned, she went above and beyond to help me through the most horrible situation of my life. She is not only still my attorney after 3+ years but she is also now a friend. As a bonus, my daughter doesn't like most people but the literal minute she met Robin, she was talking to her and acted like she had known her forever. That is how Robin is, just a genuinely nice person who happens to be a phenomenal attorney. Although I never have actually visited Robin's office, I additionally have had a great phone relationship with the front desk staff and with Robin's paralegal staff. I have always been received well, when either paying my bill or when I need to get in touch with Robin. If Robin is out of town or in a meeting, I am always able to talk with Robin's paralegal, Jill, who has been wonderful, or with Hannah Westmont, another attorney in the firm, for any legal advice. Jill is always helping me get the documents I need or filing the proper documents on time. Overall, I can not stress how much this office, and specifically Robin, have helped me through the absolute worst time in my life. I would highly recommend working with Robin Beattie and her firm.

Robin made all the difference!
My health had deteriorated dramatically since my divorce; I lost my job, medical bills skyrocketed and I could no longer afford the alimony. Yet my ex and her lawyer kept hammering me for more money and claimed I was not too sick to work (I had advanced stage cancer with kidney failure!). The stress made me even sicker. So I badly needed help from a strong and confident lawyer with a good understanding of post-divorce maintenance issues. Googled and discovered Robin, who literally "wrote the book" on this matter for Colorado! She knew exactly how to proceed and her confidence in handling my situation made me feel a lot better. Within 8 weeks, she secured a 50% reduction in my alimony obligation. The following year, she reduced my life insurance obligation by half and resolved complex issues about my stock holdings. Perhaps most importantly, I found out that she has a great reputation among her peers, respected by the judges and feared by opposing counsel. I couldn't be more pleased with Robin's work on my behalf.

The Miracle Worker!
Robin was recommended by a good friend of mine. After having some mediocre Attorneys in the past, I just resigned to the fact that must be the norm. Boy was I in for a shock! Robin is by leaps and bounds the best attorney ever!! She worked so hard for me and was able to pull a rabbit out of her hat. Needless to say that my case wasn't the easiest one. I was extrememely pleased with the results. If you want an attorney that is fierce and will fight tooth and nail for you then I would highly recommend Robin. Robin genuinely cares about her clients and is compassionate & understanding of their needs.

Best case scenarios with her involvement.
Highly skilled with calming compassion is how I would describe my favorite attorney, Robin Beattie. My divorce was complicated and painful as cases involving children can especially be. Thankfully I was able to find Robin who possess the very high level of skill required to successfully intervene in a difficult case where I feared all hope was lost. After a tough start with another attorney I researched long and hard to find the best I could find. Robins empathetic calmness was the reassurance I welcomed during the more difficult times. I have referred great friends and clients to Robin with the sound confidence that best case scenarios are probable with her involvement.

Excellent Attorney
Robin is extremely knowledgeable. She handled an unusual custody case for us with a successful outcome. She was always responsive and kept us updated on the status of our case, she even called us after hours and on the weekend. She was always conscientious of our finances and kept us on track. She handled our case with innovation and professionalism. She is very personable and approachable. I would recommend Robin without reservation or hesitation. She is a great attorney.

Robin Lutz Beattie Review
Robin Lutz Beattie is a wonderful attorney, and she has represented me in court several times over the past couple of years. She has always been professional, punctual, courteous and knowledgeable and very strong in court. The staff at Polidori, Franklin and Monahan is wonderful too, and have made my husband and I feel very comfortable and well taken care of when we've been at their offices. I would highly recommend Robin to my friends and family that need a great family attorney.

I believe that she is one of the best attorneys to hire & have represent you!! Thanks for the Great work & results!!

10 to a 5
Robin was amazing at first. She was prepared and knowledgeable. She helped me stay strong when I was struggling. She was a counselor when I needed to cry and a cheerleader when I needed a pep talk. I really liked her and thought she was doing an amazing job. My divorce took forever and as it got closer to the final orders and a trip she had planned she all of the sudden started trying to convince me to settle on things we had been firm on the entire time. I lost confidence and faith and well I’m back in court (with a different attorney) with my ex two years later because exactly what I said would happen did and it wasn’t covered in our SA. I think she’s a good lawyer, when she cares.

What A JOKE!
Robin was the worst possible attorney for my needs. She was dishonest and played games as her tactics, which I am not alright with.
