AMAZING Family law advice!
Cody was and is fantastic! She was referred to me by a friend and previous attorney. (Shout out to Greg Qimby! lol!) She made speaking to her and her access very open. She immediately felt like family. The tough little sister you always need to have in your court. ;-) She is kind, honest, direct, available and real. I appreciate her in my life more than I can say. !!! Brennon and I both thank you!!

Great Help in Preparing our Will
Ms. Christian was very pleasant to work with. She helped us understand current Colorado Law pertaining to what's necessary for our will. She gave us time to organize our thoughts, with no pressure. And my wife and I are pleased with the final product. I will be recommending her for all our family and friends legal needs.
