The day I walked out of Brenda's office after my initial consultation I cried tears of relief. I felt like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders after our meeting and that I had found the perfect attorney to represent me in my less than typical case and help me protect my kid's future. She has a wealth of knowledge surrounding mental health law and her experience and expertise in this area were invaluable to my situation. Going through a divorce is an exhausting process so having someone as compassionate, professional and experienced as Brenda in your corner is critical. I met with two other attorneys before I spoke to Brenda and am SO thankful I found Brenda when I did. She was extremely professional and maintained this demeanor even when my spouse's attorney was less than. She respected my budget and was motivated to help me reach a fair and reasonable settlement in my case which could have gone in a completely different direction costing me mental anguish and money I did not have at my disposal. I can't thank Brenda and her team enough for all their hard work, support and compassion during this process and would recommend her 100 times over!!

I hired this firm for my contested and contentious divorce largely based on Brenda's reputation. I ended up going with her junior associate Danielle to save money and because I was told that she worked very closely with Brenda on all things. Well either that was just pure fiction, or Brenda was asleep at the wheel, her reputation isn't warranted or Danielle wasn't forthcoming with Brenda about what she was doing. I don't know. Brenda seems to be well-respected. What I do know is that Danielle is extremely inexperienced and gave advice that has my current attorney scratching her head and could result in my looking bad to the court, I.e. Go ahead and take a bunch of money out of your 401k if you need to even though funds are basically supposed to be frozen. Before I left I asked to switch to Brenda instead, realizing that when you go cheap you get what you pay for. I was told that Brenda doesn't allow clients to switch attorneys in her firm. Very strange or just not true. Going through a divorce is one of the most stressful experiences you can go through, your attorney is not supposed to exacerbate that stress. Just an awful experience.

First off, I cannot say enough good things! So impressed with our results; Brenda and her staff are amazing! This was my 2nd time through court on parenting time. The first time, was horrible, I did not research my attorney well enough and chose her based on her rate (which is really what I could afford at the time) Well. you get what you pay for. My self-confidence was destroyed! I lost so much time with my son, time I will never get back and if I can make a suggestion, don't do that to yourself or your kids! Hire Brenda!!
Brenda and her staff were extremely responsive, respectful and professional. If I had a question or a ruling, they informed me right away and responded immediately. Brenda took the time to sit with me and figure out the best plan of action! I loved her honesty and she re-instilled my confidence I had lost 4 years ago by using a substandard attorney that ultimately left me feeling like I did not deserve this time with my son!
Please take my word for this, you will not be disappointed! Brenda and her team are worth every penny and you will not regret the decision.
Not to go into too much detail of my case but a quick run through of the results -
Yes, I got everything important I asked for in my parenting plan, which I feel I was pretty fair from the get go, but Brenda helped me solidify it and let me bounce ideas off of her that I thought would give my son the best plan, not only with me, but with his father, as well. She was honest and if I was out of line or it didn't seem reasonable she gently let me know why and how we could better proceed. I loved this because I was super stressed and it is so exhausting! You're emotional and you may not be thinking rationally, but the last thing you need is for someone to rudely tell you that or worse that you're crazy!
Yes, I was awarded attorney fees!! This doesn't happen often, but if you have Brenda, she is so detail oriented and can effectively communicate to the judge how time was wasted by the other side playing games. In the end, it really just comes down to effective communication. That is all the judge will see! Let me put your mind at ease, Brenda is extremely effective at communication and she will not your waste your time!
Again, I completely recommend Brenda and her staff, so you better hire her before the other side does, or you might be in trouble!!

My case involved post decree parenting time and decision making. My previous attorney became a Judge, and I used AVVO to find Brenda. We had a complicated case that involved a PRE, PRE update, 2-1/2 day hearing, and emergency orders after the ruling. Throughout the process Brenda and her staff were always professional, accessible, and friendly. While I hope that you can find alternatives to using the courts you will not find better representation. Brenda’s understanding of mental health, legal experience, and desire to do the right thing were all critical to the success we experienced in my case.

I have nothing but great things to say about Brenda and her staff. Divorce is not a fun thing but with Brenda by my side she made it as enjoyable as possible. We actually laughed a lot together! May people view lawyers as non-compassionate robots but Brenda is nothing close to that. She is kind and caring but a bulldog when she needs to be. Whether that is with you or the other party. She will hold your hand look you in the eyes and tell you your irrational fears are just that. She was willing to go above and beyond for me to get the job done. She offered to call me at 230am while I drove into work to finalize some details before our finally hearing since I work crazy hours (which I said was crazy but she simply replied "That's just the kind of attorney I am - willing if needed!" I will forever hold a special place in my heart for her and her staff! You will not be disappointed!

I haven't met with them but did talk to them on the phone. Their rates seem pricey but when it comes to lawyers, you get what you pay for. The woman I talked to was very nice, dirrect and answered all of my questions. She did however talk pretty fast on the phone making it a tiny bit difficult to understand her at times. I felt bad but I had to ask her to repeat herself a couple of times. So if thats the only bad thing i've got to say about this then i've said it. I hope we can do business together.

Brenda Storey represented me in my recent divorce. In a word she was, great! From our first meeting, Brenda listened and empathized with me, quickly realizing I came from a bullied marriage. I learned, also from our first meeting, that Brenda had my best interests as her top priority. While I was sometimes emotionally charged she didn’t allow emotions surrounding my case to negatively impact her actions or decisions. She was always calm, professional and reassuring. In one particular instance, mediation, she proved to be a stalwart. She held her ground on all aspects of the separation, even willing to go to court unless a fair, equitable settlement was reached. From beginning to end, Brenda carried herself professionally and gracefully. I always felt comfortable and confident talking with her and knowing that she would fight for the best outcome. While I hope the need never arises, I would highly recommend her to others.

Brenda handled my case with the utmost importance, her and her staff were extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. I am very happy with the outcome of my case.

From my first meeting with Brenda, over a year before my husband's filing for divorce, I knew I could talk comfortably and openly with her...even in my state of tears and uncertainty. She was always sympathetic, supportive, and tough (on my behalf)! All correspondence was shared with me and any questions I had were answered almost immediately! She even travelled through a snow storm for a court date she couldn't get to...and didn't charge me for her time and extreme effort! She worked well with the opposing attorney and only spoke highly of him. She has my greatest respect and endorsement!

While I would not have chosen to have gotten divorced or had the need to work out parenting plan and separation agreement issues, I am so thankful that Ms. Story represented me. She was honest, straightforward, quick to respond to all of my questions and concerns, professional, friendly, and was impressive in her knowledge of Colorado family law. She guided me through the steps in the process and kept me on track during a devastating time. She also made sure I thought deeply about what I--and my children--needed when it would have been easy to let my now-ex-husband intimidate me into agreeing to what was best for him. I have the utmost respect for Ms. Story. I also believe her pricing structure was fair and always easy to understand. I could not have asked for better and would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone going through a divorce or who has need of legal counsel about separation, custody, or child support issues. I know she was in my corner at a vulnerable time for me, and I will always be grateful for that and for her. I highly recommend her and her friendly, professional staff.
