Jessica has devoted much of the last decade to reframing and expanding the entire way we view families in the context of their legal needs, with a focus on resolving high-conflict family law matters with the lowest level of litigation possible. 

Traditional family law firms focus almost solely on divorce, custody, and property division. Jessica has handled more than 200 contested and collaborative cases in these areas.  Jessica also insists on mastering the other types of expertise and legal services modern families rely upon when life gets most challenging.

Named a top Colorado education law attorney, she helps parents and kids seeking enforcement and protection of disability rights in our schools. Likewise, she is seasoned at representing kids and parents tied up in school or juvenile court proceedings. For families seeking to expand through adoption and guardianship, she’ll be there in court with you. She is passionately devoted to helping families find solutions to mental health and substance abuse challenges and is adept at crafting parenting plans that use modern technology and tiered-visitation to keep kids safe. With a public policy graduate degree and multiple prestigious fellowships focused on government accountability, Jessica crafts creative and workable solutions for our clients, in the context of healthcare law, enforcement of medical billing protections and much more.

The GOAT -
I have arguably the most complicated and most litigated custody case known to mankind - while others refuse to work on my case Jessica has taken it on with such grace and positivity. She was not intimidated by the numerous pleadings and clear mental health instability that the opposing side brings to the table. She has cleaned up messes my previous attorney made. Jessica truly cares about my daughter and what is best for her, even if that means she has to keep it real with me and tell me things I don’t want to hear. She’s a straight shooter and is incredible in the court room. I am so blessed that she has become a part of my case and I trust her to guide me through the hardest thing I’ve ever been through. She is professional, articulate, genuine and so understanding. She has made me feel calm in the chaos. I have full confidence in her - she is a talented and very skilled attorney. If you have a hard case- Jessica is the one you want on your side, hands down she’s the best at what she does.

The best attorney!
Jessica Peck is an excellent lawyer and such a beautiful human. After going through a few attorneys that just didn't care about me or my child's well-being, I found Jessica who has completely turned my case around. She has gone above and beyond for me and my daughter and I will forever be grateful for her and the work she does. She was able to relate to me and my situation and has done her absolute best to help me. She made herself available at some of my hardest moments. Jessica if I could give you 20 stars I would! Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Intelligent Compassionate Representation
When our family fell into a sticky legal situation Jessica Peck helped us out immensely. She was professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and effective. She understands family dynamics & challenges and is able to calmly apply often complex legal precedence to emotionally charged situations. While we hope to never need her again in the future, we know that should the need to arise, she will be our first call.

Smart Counselor
I had the great pleasure of working with Jessica on a case. I was brought in as a corporate lawyer and watching her work and provide thoughtful and clear advice to her client was very impressive. She is an excellent advocate and lawyer.

I came to Jessica to get a second opinion on my divorce case when it was nearing its completion. Specifically, on the parenting plan aspect. She gave me excellent advice and also provided me with the tools to go back to my attorney and get a better plan in place for my kids. Jessica took my calls on a moments notice and guided me through a very tough process when I truly felt lost. She’s one of the best there is. Jessica will fight for you and fight even harder to ensure the safety of your kids. She’s down to earth and will help you get an achievable game plan when you might not think it’s possible. Don’t hesitate on hiring her.

A perfect 10!
This Lawfirm is amazing. It’s exactly the kind of relationship I’d hoped for, and obtained, during my hell case. She’s not the cheapest bay far, but she shoots straight, and empowered me to make financial choices about our strategy that the lawyers I met with before just glossed over. My total case cost was about $30,000 over 18 months. The other side was at more than $50k. My ex and I both had top attorneys but only I walked out of our trial knowing my lawyer had treated my fairly, with respect, throughout the entire term of my case. Now that I’m done and case is closed Jessica checks in to send nice emails or send me articles and stuff she thinks I might find helpful. Most lawyers are SO cold. Not Jessica. The best choice I made at age 40, when I decided to begin my life again without my Biolar ex, allowed me to move forward respectfully. I’m so proud of the choices I made and the way we acted along the way. Assholes seem to win too often. But not here. The good guys won!

My custody case was very complex and Jessica was attentive and quick to respond to issues as they arose. She came to trial prepared which resulted in being granted everything we were requesting. She made my goals for the case her goals, and provided me the support I needed throughout the case. I could go on and on. If you're reading this review. Don't hesitate to call Jessica. Jessica - I'll always appreciate your dedication and assistance through this difficult time in my life. You're one of my favorite people and my life has been enhanced from knowing you.

Highly Recommend
I couldn’t possibly tell you how fantastic this person is! During one of the most difficult times in my life she was a hand reaching out to save me from what seemed like complete disaster. She is tough and helped me navigate my way through a truly corrupt and broken system we refer to as “Human Services.” She showed me the way and helped me stay patient and focused. She is far more generous and open with her emotions than any attorney I have ever met or heard of. She helped me and my family reach a workable agreement and brought peace back into our lives. She will always be in my heart and I will call her anytime I need some serious help. I strongly recommend you contact Jessica Peck before you call anybody. She listens and she cares and she will tell you the truth.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
I was truly lucky to be able to have Ms. Peck represent me in my case. If you are looking for legal representation you will not find anyone better! She displayed genuine concern for me and my daughter and not only did she work hard to fight for us but she has a true desire for justice. She is smart, honest, caring, loyal, confident and has a heart of gold. I never felt like just another client, I felt safe and fully protected and cared for. Ms. Peck is not afraid to fight for the truth and will work endlessly to make sure that you are taken care of. There is no one else out there that will provide the level of professionalism, protection and complete dedication. I can't say enough great things about the relationship that was built and what a tremendous person she is. My life would not be the same without her help and I am eternally thankful. She stuck by my side through everything and I never felt alone. She is absolutely amazing!!!! She did everything possible for me and we won our case! Highly recommend!!!!! You will not regret it. If you want the best, look no further than Jessica Peck.

Jessica is one of the most passionate and caring attorneys I've ever worked with. She takes the time to figure out what's wrong, what needs to be rectified, and how she can best serve you through the matter. She is willing to adjust her approach to make it the right one with each different case. Highly recommend.

Super Lawyer!
Jessica has been a light in a very dark tunnel. My husband and I felt her genuine care for our family every step of the way. I would go out of my way to recommend this lawyer. Jessica is very knowledgeable, patient and down to earth. You don't feel like you are being belittled or talked down to. A true friend.

Divorce
Jessica was a godsend when it came to her assistance with valuing my ex-husband's assets and arriving at a equitable settlement. Unfortunately, this was over my head given their were unexercised stock options as well as a 401k and both primary and secondary homes. Can't recommend her enough.

Made a tragic time something we could survive
Our case involves the death of a young family member. We were so confused and intimidated by not feeling like we could trust anyone with CPS or DA’s office until Jessica intervened to protect our grandparent rights. We now have custody and have her to thank for getting us our granddaughter back.

She helped walk me through a very tense situation with a holdover tenant who was doing drugs, causing other neighbors to break their leases and threatening to sue me. Can't recommend her highly enough!!

I’m a lawyer who hired Jessica as my lawyer
I first hired Jessica to help file my divorce when my husband was arrested on domestic violence, child abuse and gun charges when my daughter was less than a year old. While I’m also a lawyer I knew nothing about family law. I was so scared and she got me through each day and each court appearance at a time when I couldn’t even picture a tomorrow. Immediately after my divorce case she helped me revisit my comprehensive estate plan to ensure it didn’t conflict with guardianship contingencies specific to my daughter. She’s one of very few lawyers I l know who really seem to understand the relationship between the two objectives. When my ex was released from prison after 2 1/2 years, he genuinely seemed like a new and different man. She respectfully engaged a “trust but verify” strategy that gives me the power to yank my ex’s contact with our daughter at almost any moment and for almost any reason. As part of this, she helped me find an affordable quality court-appointed parenting coordinator that oversees my ex’s gradual reintroduction into my daughter’s life. Looking back, Jessica was the one person in my life who fully supported me when I decided to slowly begin reopening the door to a father-daughter relationship that my ex certainly didn’t deserve. Time will tell if I made the best choice. For now I know I can encourage my daughter to embrace her daddy visits. This feels right, it feels safe and it is certainly a risk that my daughter deserves to have me take.

Efficient, personable, aggressive when necessary
I have used Jessica on a number of issues, most recently a sexual harassment claim, as well as ongoing negotiations for my contentious international custody case. She is supportive, smart, extremely efficient, and easy to get in touch with. I appreciated the fact that she was realistic when it comes to laying out options and strategies -- not over-promising anything, but determined to get the best outcomes for me and for my child. Most importantly, she knows when and how to get aggressive.

Thank you Jessica!
After enduring horror stories from friends about their divorce lawyers, I’m so glad I found Jessica. My judge seemed to really trust her and she was able to work really well with my ex’s lawyer to the point that we were able to settle before trial. We got the entire case done in under five months. Thank you Jessica!
