A resident of Ft. Collins for over 20 years, RD began practicing law in 2008 as an associate of a high volume civil litigation firm. Followed by a few years as Policy Director of a national non-profit and General Council for a start up oil and gas company. Since 2016, RD's practice has focused on Family Law. RD is divorced himself with a son and understands the difficulties created by ending a marriage or relationship.

Preparation and communication are critical to obtaining the best possible outcome for each client. RD works closely with clients to understand their particular situation and needs, while explaining the legal options in simple to understand terms. Thus, each client is better able to evaluate their particular options and choose the best path forward. Litigation is never favorable, but necessary when the opposing party refuses to be reasonable.

In 2005, RD and a few other local climbers started the non-profit Northern Colorado Climbers Coalition to help promote and protect climbing in Northern Colorado. RD is currently on the Board of Directors and the NCCC works closely with state and federal land managers to address the impacts of climbing and to educate the users about best practices.

Great experience
R D was very professional and he answered every question I had through out the entire process. He answers calls, emails and texts promptly and made me feel at ease the whole time. Would recommend him to anyone!

Attorney with integrity
From the very beginning RD demonstrated integrity informing me during our first phone call, that what I needed to file I could do myself and that I should take the 10 minutes to go to the courthouse and file it myself instead of paying him to do it. He answers his phone when called, even on weekends, a non-existent trait in the family law business, will always give you the truth in a very broken system even when it may not be what you want to hear as well as a plan to get to the nearest point of where you would like to be with your family, is extremely organized on always on point, and cares about your situation. Coming from some one who has been through multiple family law attorney's, 4 to be exact, in the past 5 years, I could not recommend RD more.

No words can discribe
RD was recommended to me from another lawyer. I have to say RD may just be the most exceptional, honest, and caring lawyer on the planet. RD took over my case after it was already messed up by my first lawyer who had no idea what to do. RD took my case and was realistic and honest about everything with me. No doubt this case may have been the most difficult case and dealing with the other side was absolutely impossible. RD through all the mess was the most professional and realistic guy I've ever worked with. RD worked with me on the longest most pointless trial ever conducted. Due to RD's knowledge, and professionalism we didn't waist any time throwing mud or with useless evidence, and put on the strongest case possible for the court. Words can't describe how much RD helped get me through this horrific experience. I would recommend RD for anyone who truly appreciates honesty and integrity. Thank you RD, for putting in so much hard work, and having to deal with me and my ex through it all.

Where to begin...with everything I have to say about RD, saying that I am honored to have had his services is an understatement! RD went above and beyond in every aspect and was so fair about pricing it's almost unreal. I am a pretty emotional, frantic, and high-anxiety individual. Then add on the situation I was in with my ex-husband regarding my daughter and I was just a complete mess. RD was always so kind and made sure to explain every option every step of the way. I could call him crying or break down on the phone and he'd have me feeling like it was going to be ok in no time. He is a commendable, honest, genuine human making his line of work perfect for him. I can't say enough good things about him. All of the negative stereotypes you think of when you hear the word "lawyer" can be easily forgotten with him. I would recommend him without even having to think about it. If things go south with my ex-husband, it feels good to know that I have a lawyer to call who I have no worries about and complete faith in. If you need a family lawyer, CALL RD NOW!

Can't imagine someone better to hire
I got RD recommended to me from a family friend who is using him for a custody case. I was able to go to a consultation very unsure of anything I was going to be able to do. He was able to explain my rights about custody and answer every question I have and explain the entire process. He was very realistic about the possible outcomes and what would be the best way to handle things. He never pressured me to go any route I didn't want to go and gave me some very valuable advice about things I had not thought of that made all the difference in my case. He is extremely easy to work with, always super with reasponse time and very prompt when anything needed to be done on my case. He keep me in the loop with every communication he was making with the other side. Even is billing is great, everything was laid out in a very easy to read format, and all charges were inline with what I expected them to be. RD is just over all great guy and great to work with, I couldn't imagine hiring someone else.

Exceptional Lawyer
RD Pascoe represented me in my divorce this past year. I have to say hiring an attorney was quite intimidating for me as I never thought I would be in this position. However, after meeting with Mr. Pascoe I felt at ease because of his compassionate nature. I feel very thankful he was available to work on my case. He was always there to answer any questions that I had during the process and made sure that I was satisfied with every detail of the divorce. I have to say I was so much more confident with him by my side! I would highly recommend RD Pascoe to anyone who requires representation.

RD is a wonderful lawyer.
RD was my lawyer in my divorce case. Prior to meeting RD, when I went looking for a lawyer to represent me in my divorce, the other lawyers that I had first consulted with were intimidating and just not very kind or professional. This left me feeling apprehensive and stressed out, dreading the divorce process. However, when I had a consultation with RD, I was pleasantly surprised by his kind and calm demeanor. Without giving me false hope or unrealistic expectations, he put me at ease about the whole divorce process. He was laid back and took the time to explain things to me and did not make me feel rushed to finish the consultation, like other lawyers had done. He was very thorough, informative, and incredibly helpful. I left his office feeling confident about moving forward with the divorce. Because of my financial circumstances, I was able to hire RD as my divorce attorney, but only for the first half of my divorce. During that time, he was incredibly helpful and professional. He was very prompt and always got back to me quickly. He answered my many questions with patience and always gave sound advice. He was honest, straight forward, and always well prepared. I am incredibly thankful to have had his services during the most difficult part of my divorce. RD is a compassionate lawyer and truly cares about his clients. Because of his help and expertise, I now feel capable and prepared to represent myself for the final hearing of my divorce. RD's services have been invaluable to me during this entire process, and I am confident that he will be of benefit to anyone else who finds themselves in need of a lawyer.

Was instrumental in our success
I worked with RD when he was with the Access Fund and he traveled to Hawaii to help the local climbing community with a climbing access issue with our State legislature. We needed to get legislation passed so that we could regain access to our climbing area and it is safe to say that without RD's professional support we would not have been successful in our cause. RD not only advocated for us by testifying in front of house committees but he was also helpful in interpreting and negotiating the final permitting process that was created. All told, he was an excellent communicator and knew how best use his skills. I recommend him highly.

Very knowledgable attorney
RD is a great family lawyer and I trust his opinion and expertise completely. My marriage has been in danger and I consulted with him seeking advice on how to proceed and what I'd need to do if I go through with a separation. I am still deciding, but RD's insight was welcomed and very helpful in my decision process. I can't say enough good things about RD.

Someone you want in your corner.
I was seeking legal advice from Robert Dennis Pascoe regarding details of a contract and he was very helpful with deciphering the wording and explaining it to me. He is also a very down to earth guy and kept me from "over-lawyering" the contract and guided me to keep it simple and firm. I haven't used him outside of contract work but I would definitely want someone with his skills in speech and debate to be in my corner.

Recommendation for R. D. Pascoe
R.D. Pascoe recently represented me in my very difficult and contentious divorce case. I hired R.D. after having worked for several months with a large and well-known firm; I felt that the various lawyers assigned to my case neither understood my concerns nor cared about the outcome of my case, despite the significant fees they were charging. R.D. stepped in during this time and took the case over. R.D. is a very competent, thorough and responsive professional. He always responded quickly to my questions and concerns and provided me with expert service throughout this long ordeal. R.D. took the time to listen carefully to me, and to patiently explain the many complexities involved. I am the owner of a business and the father of two small children. As a result, and there were numerous, complicated details to be worked through. He coordinated expertly with my accountant and my assistant. He was able to communicate calmly and effectively with opposing counsel throughout many factious discussions, and was able to negotiate a reasonable compromise that was ultimately satisfactory to all parties. I highly recommend R. D. Pascoe

Direct and thorough guidance
My experience with Robert “RD” was a welcome relief from previous attorney consultations. His calm disposition better enabled me to absorb his assessment and recommendations without angst. Thank you, and should I decide to proceed as discussed I’ll be certain retain your counsel. Appreciate it!

Just like every other lawyer
Sure he’s nice, will answer every call immediately, keep you on the line as long as possible, fill you with false hope, charge insane amounts of money like the others, you’ll have to proofread the motions and fix the typos yourself .... honestly, if it’s divorce and child custody you’re dealing with, do as much as you can on your own, and if you have to pick a lawyer and lose thousands, pick someone else.

Hello, Unfortunately, since this review was written anonymously and there is not much detail, I am unsure of the person leaving the review. I do know that family law cases are often difficult and certainly legal work is expensive and I am sorry for not being able to help you how you wanted. Sincerely, Pascoe Law LLC
