Mr. Cranmer founded Peakside Law in October 2018 after returning to Northwest Colorado from the Front Range, having spent several years litigating cases for firms in Denver and Colorado Springs. His background gives him extraordinary trial experience, from criminal defense – Mr. Cranmer was a District Attorney in Steamboat for several years – to personal injury jury trials, and most importantly, family law. His multi-disciplinary background gives him the capacity to relate to each client on a personal and knowledgeable level.
Mr. Cranmer attended the University of Kansas where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. He then attended the Denver University Sturm College of Law where he was a member of the Denver University Law Review and graduated with his Juris Doctorate in 2003.
Mr. Cranmer enjoys family law because of the challenge of a courtroom. He takes pleasure in knowing he has assisted every client to fight for their rights and what they believe in for their families. At the end of the day, Mr. Cramer feels like he is helping people, and that inspires him to aggressively argue for each client’s position.
Mr. Cranmer knows it is important that clients understand the process every step of the way and that in family law it is important for the process to be handled as amicably as possible, but he ensures that if that isn’t what happens, each clients’ rights are protected. Our Colorado courts prefer 50/50 parenting time, but Mr. Cranmer understands that equal parenting time is best only when both parents are normal, caring parents. If that is not your situation, Mr. Cranmer is ready and able to fight for what is best for your children.
