About Carl Graham

About me

Carl O. Graham, Colorado Springs, CO divorce & family law attorney/lawyer, brings top tier representation at a mid-range price. He was chair of the El Paso County family law section, and regularly teaches classes on complex family law issues to fellow Colorado divorce lawyers.

Academically, Carl graduated with honors from the University of Southampton in the U.K., where he was captain of the debating team.  He scored in the top 2% on the LSAT, and was in the top 15% of his graduating class at the UCLA School of Law.

Professionally, Carl spent 8 years as an Army JAG attorney, where he helped soldiers and family members with family law and other issues, and was then both a prosecutor and defense counsel, ending as the Senior Trial Counsel at Fort Carson.  His background has given him insight into the military side of family law, and he is considered an authority on Colorado military divorce issues.

Since then, Carl has been a divorce & family law attorney in Colorado Springs more than 12 years.  His leadership and Colorado divorce experience is recognized by family law attorneys throughout Colorado who call him weekly with questions - even judges call once or twice a year.  Carl is among the few divorce lawyers in Colorado Springs to receive a “Distinguished” rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and is the only domestic relations attorney in El Paso County with an Avvo rating of 10.0 (Superb).  These are authentic, merit-based recognitions, not sponsored listings.

Carl’s clientele includes general officers, physicians and other professionals, average people from all walks of life trying to do the best for their families, and those of limited means who have help to pay for a quality family law attorney.  He is particularly proud at how often satisfied clients, and even former adversaries, recommend him to their family and friends.

Each of Carl's cases benefits from his 20-year track record of successful litigation.  He has contested hundreds of cases in front of judges and juries, from multi-million dollar divorces with competing experts, to parenting or child support modifications; and prosecuted or defended every crime imaginable, from 1st degree murder and rape, to drugs and larceny.  In short, Carl knows how to try a case - if your case is contested, you need a veteran Colorado Springs divorce litigator.

Many cases settle without the client having to enter a courtroom. A settlement is more likely to be favorable with a seasoned Colorado Springs family law attorney on your team who approaches negotiations with the confidence of knowing the law, being prepared, and the other side knowing Carl is ready to go to court should negotiations fail.

Carl devotes 100% of his practice to Colorado divorce & family law in El Paso and Teller Counties. If you need a CO divorce or family law attorney, talk to one who specializes solely on the family law issues that matter to your case, not a "jack-of-all-trades" who dabbles in a bit of everything.
