Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Bartley A Costello Jr.

    I have known Bob Lanham for nearly 20 years. I endorse this attorney without reservation. I have referred a number of clients and close personal friends to Bob, and the results have been superb in every case. Bob has a longstanding background and keenness in complex financial transactions. I genuinely state that I know of no attorney who even comes close to his ability and tenacity in high asset divorce cases. Bob is totally unafraid of other lawyers and has litigated critical issues through the appellate courts of Colorado to make new law. Bob is creative, astoundingly smart, forthright, profoundly ethical, and obtains exceptional results for his clients.

  • Patrick K Perrin

    I have known Mr. Lanham as an attorney for over 20 years and have referred many people to him who were looking for a good family law attorney. He is highly skilled and knowledgeable with a rare blend (in this field) of integrity, compassion and tenacity. I would recommend him to anyone in Colorado seeking an attorney for a divorce or other family law matter
