Practice areas

Laura Monty founded Laura Monty Law, LLC in 2015 after relocating with her family from Denver to the Fort Collins area.  Prior to relocating, Ms. Monty practiced exclusively family law in Denver for several years. Ms. Monty is a skilled litigator who has experience with complex divorce matters, child custody disputes, and post decree enforcement and modification matters. 

 

While Ms. Monty is happy to assist clients with their family law litigation needs, her goal when founding Laura Monty Law, LLC was to provide clients with options outside of traditional litigation with which to resolve their family law disputes. 

 

Ms. Monty is trained in Collaborative Law and Mediation and is an advocate for settling disputes outside of court whenever possible.  Additionally, Ms. Monty is proud to offer Unbundled Legal Services to clients who desire some assistance through their family law matter, but do not wish to retain an attorney to represent them during the entire court process.

 

Ms. Monty holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her Juris Doctor from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. 

 

In 2015, Ms. Monty was selected as a "10 Best Family Law Attorney Under 40" by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys.  She was also a nominee for the Denver Business Journal's "40 Under 40" awards. 

 

Ms. Monty has presented on unbundled legal services in family law matters through the Colorado Bar Association and is actively involved in several legal organizations, including the Colorado Bar Association Family Law Section, Metro Denver Interdisciplinary Committee, Colorado Collaborative Divorce Professionals, International Academy of Collaborative Professionals, and Metro Volunteer Lawyers.

Successful Mediation
One of the most daunting tasks that anyone needing legal insight has to undertake is the identification and selection of an attorney in whom they can have complete trust and faith that not only will the advice they receive be accurate and applicable, but also that their interests are fully understood. From the very first phone call with Ms. Monty, it was readily apparent that I did not need to call anyone else. She took the time to fully understand the issues and concerns I had surrounding my upcoming mediation. Rather than react based upon what I might want to hear, she took the time to fully research all of my concerns and provide me with sound options and advice. She was firm when necessary, compassionate when needed and, above all, professional at all times. Family law cannot be something that is easy to be involved with, but Ms. Monty obvoiusly understands that emotions are part of the equation. Throughout the mediation, she was very supportive and allowed both I and my ex to attempt to resolve our differences through our own dialogue, interjecting only with suggestions to keep the conversation moving. It was quite obvious that her ultimate goal was to see the mediation a success if at all possible. I would have no apprehension whatsoever recommending Laura Monty to anyone seeking thorough, professional and compassionate representation for any family law matters.

Professional, knowledgeable, patient. A strong advocate.
As my divorce attorney, Ms. Monty was professional, knowledgeable, patient, and constantly keeping my best interest at heart. I always felt she understood the strong emotional component of going through a divorce and was a knowledgeable advocate for me throughout the entire process. Her explanations of the legalities involved in divorce were easy for me to understand, and the efficiency by which she drove the process reduced my stress level immensely. I am grateful for the role she played in my divorce process.

Great Attorney!
Laura Monty represented me in my recent divorce. She is very knowledgeable in divorce and helped me through several mediations to achieve a fair outcome. I have three children and I was concerned with how child custody was going to shake out after the divorce. Laura kept my children's best interests at the forefront. Her advise throughout the divorce process was exceptional. Laura kept me informed through each step and answered my many questions and concerns promptly. When you retain Laura to represent you, you will be getting one of the best attorneys in Colorado. I am happy I had her represent me and I would definitely hire her again.
