For the past twenty-three years, I have practiced family law and general civil litigation.  I practiced for fifteen years in Texas, from 1995 to 2010. In 2010, I moved my practice to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where I was born.

 

My primary area of practice is family law, including divorce, child custody, child support modification and enforcement, and grandparent rights.  I have extensive experience representing parents and children in suits involving the Department of Human Services, sometimes known as Child Protective Services.

 

In addition to family law, I handle civil protection orders, landlord-tenant cases, and general civil litigation.

Great lawyer!
Mr. Garner has been a true blessing in our civil order case. He got the job done efficiently and in a timely manner. He was very honest and gave us a great rate! It is sad people write bad reviews just because they didn't get the outcome they were looking for. If we didn't get the outcome we had hoped for, I would still give him 5 stars because I saw him work very hard on our case. Thank you Mr. Garner!

In my opinion I would not hire this attorney!
I retained Kirk Gardnerg and he did a very poor job for me this is my opinion I ended up firing him. I higher Jason kennard of kennard and kennard Jason handled the case for a quarter of the cost and won it the first time around where Kirk Gardner had it extended for over a year when we went back Jason kennard knocked it out of the ballpark I highly recommend Jason kennard over Kirk Gardner this is my opinion do yourself a favor and shop around before hiring this attorney.

He is not an advocate for the Mother
Every time I spoke with Kirk about my case, he would argue IN favor of my daughter's father. I retrained him as my attorney at the end of April last year to re-do the parenting plan and re-calculate child support. It has been 10 months and Kirk barely calls me, he has not provided me a single statement of my account. He has had two months to set up one meeting and hasn't done it. He is a huge waste of money. Don't use Kirk Garner!!!!
