About Sheena

Learn Sheena’s areas of practice.

I am an attorney who is compassionate about the needs and wishes of my clients. I have helped clients navigate the legal system in order to achieve their desired results in family law and probate. I have helped them mediate results without the need of litigation but have also gone to trial and received successful outcomes for my clients. I have helped families in crisis fight to get their children back, fight to keep their children safe, fight to receive fair outcomes that protect their assets. I have also helped families in crisis navigate the medicaid system and set up trusts and wills for concerned families.

 

I have three beautiful children. I have aging parents and in-laws and a passion to fight for children and the elderly. I enjoy helping the elderly preserve their assets and their ensuring that their legacy continues by setting up their wills and trusts. I also understand the needs for documents setting powers of appointment and living wills as they were incredible helpful with my Grandmother passed away.

 

I enjoy family time including board games, skiing, and being outdoors. There is nothing as magical as the smile and laughter of those you love.

Highly Recommend Sheena Moran for Estate Planning
Sheena Moran worked with us to create estate planning documents - will(s), trust, powers of attorney (medical and financial). She made a "tedious" process very interesting. She explained everything in layman's terms and give real life examples. She was flexible in meeting times and places. I would recommend Sheena to anyone looking to create or update their estate planning documents.

Sheena Moran
Over the course of the last few years I not only retained Ms. Sheena Moran as my personal attorney, but I highly recommended her to family and friends. Ms. Moran has many qualities that make her an outstanding attorney including the most important, in my opinion, being trustworthy and dedicated to her profession. On a consistent basis, Ms. Moran’s legal advice has been based on sound judgment and what she believes is in the best interest of her clients. Furthermore, her demeanor has always been professional in both public and private settings, especially in situations whereby a calm and yet assertive voice is needed to provide reassurance. Without reservation, I recommend Ms. Moran to anyone who is seeking legal counsel that is effective, efficient, and results oriented.

Ms. Moran is the best attorney. She knows Colorado laws, is responsive, truly cares about her clients, is simply the best. She is my 3rd family attorney and is by far the best. I am so thankful I found her.

A great Lawyer for a male divorcee
Sheena was a trustful and helpful lawyer to get me through my divorce. I am a male so it was great to be able to lean on Sheen throughout the process. She was always quick to respond and would go through the best and worst case scenarios throughout the legal proceedings. I recommend her for anyone looking to hire a lawyer.

Sheena Moran is a wonderful and dependable lawyer
Sheena was such a wonderful and dependable lawyer. She understands her client's needs and she makes sure she fights for what they need. She is caring and goes out of her way to help in anyway she can. She will get the job done for you. She has impeccable knowledge of the law. I am very thankful for the help on our daughter's case involving custody of our granddaughter which involved domestic violence in the case from the other party. She will not let you down.

No nonsense, knows her stuff, bright.
I came to Sheen Moran through a personal recommendation from one of her law school peers. She was described to me at that time as among the brightest in her class. And she certainly lived up to that reputation. Through all the twists and turns of the case, Ms. Moran kept calm (often calming me down). Her command of law and strategy were exemplary, and she was very good about laying out the different options, time commitments and even costs.

very satisfied client
Ms. Sheena was very helpful with my case. She kept me up to date every step of the way. She was very knowledgeable which helped me feel very comfortable when we had to go to court. She was very understanding, she did not treat my case as just another client I felt as if I was her only client. Overall she was excellent

Absolutely Recommended!
Sheena has been amazing throughout the entire custody case. Her knowledge is impecible and her genuine care for her clients is second to none. She has answered every silly little question I have had with understanding and professionalism. Her communication is precise, professional and personal. I never feel that I am inconveniencing her in any way, as some attorneys have made me feel in the past. I genuinely appreciate all of the assistance she has provided during this stressful time. I have recommended her to numerous friends and family, and will continue to do so.

Amazing Attroney
I hired Sheena for a protection order without knowing who she was. I called her and she answered right away, met with me immediately, clearly explained the process and my options. Sheena spent time listening to me, did her research and fought for my needs in the court room. I would hire her again for any and all my legal needs. She is very smart about all legal areas.

Amazing. I couldn't be happier.
She has been amazing. She has made a very stressful case into a less stressful one. She is very honest in her work whether it is a good or bad situation. She is not like other lawyers I have worked with who do things deceitfully, she is very honest and open with you as a client.

Not only a good attorney but a good person!
Mrs. Moran was excellent. She kept me informed and actually cared about what my family was going through. She never waited until the last minute and is always on top of filings. Her prices are very reasonable.
