excellent service
Great support. I felt like Mrs. Drexler and Gasper as a whole did everything possible to help my case and at the same time did not go overboard. From previous experinces with lawyers I was concerned I would be over billed or suggested tactics that were intended to make the firm extra money at my expense. Gasper on the other hand was honest and fair. I really appreciated that and will continue to use them in the future as well as highly recommend them to anyone needing a lawyer.

Class Act!
Teresa represented me in my recent divorce case. She is a complete professional: knowledgeable, understanding, dedicated, and compassionate. Teresa worked tirelessly on my case, offering her advice yet listening to my needs as well. I was really impressed by her dedication, it was not uncommon to get emails from her well into the late evening and she was always quick to reply to whatever I needed. This rare, unmatched work ethic paid huge dividends and frankly, made opposing counsel look like an amateur. She earned my respect and trust and I would recommend her to anyone seeking an family law attorney.

Compassionate and professional
Teresa and her associates were professional and kind. Teresa draws her knowledge from extensive relevant experience and enhances it as needed with a network of accomplished colleagues. She is purposeful and patient; and she is confident and knowledgeable in the courtroom. She is a long-game strategist - which paired with her knowledge of the law and process - is what ensures one to get through the complications of divorce or other family legal matters.

My continued appreciation cannot be overstated!!
I was recommended Drexler Law by a friend that highly recommended them after her divorce and how well Matt and Don represented her. Teresa helped me navigate tricky waters through my divorce proceedings after I fired my previous attorney that gave me poor and incorrect legal advice. It had left me in a financial hole and vulnerable in a stressful divorce proceeding, and I hired Drexler Law to clean up the mess. Teresa took every bit of time to walk me through the process, lend a friendly ear when I needed to vent, listened and addressed every concern and question I had. The entire team was phenomenal to work with as everyone worked hard to catch up to a fast approaching mediation hearing. Every email and phone call received a prompt response. When we had to go to trial, Teresa and Brian made opposing counsel look inferior with their preparedness and professionalism. Teresa is calm, cool, collected and sharp as they come. She is so kind but make no mistake she won’t be walked over. Between both of them, they made such a phenomenal team for me in front of the judge. Brian Melton commanded the presence in the room with his assertiveness and confidence and wasn’t afraid to be a “shark” in court. He was direct, firm, and confronted issues head on. His in-depth financial research on the case resolved a number of complex issues we had regarding a business my ex-husband, and I owned. I have never been so proud to be represented by my attorneys! They were worth every penny. I cannot stress enough how much I recommend them. In the scheme of things my divorce would be a “small-scale” set of issues, but they treated me the same as if it were a million dollar case. They defended and protected me and my interests to the end. The fact that they made me feel important, heard and valued as a client was worth more to me than the financial investment I had made. I know that they did everything they could to represent me fairly and ensure that I wasn’t taken advantage of in an already difficult, painstaking, and emotionally taxing divorce process. They listened to my concerns and addressed every one of them with aggressiveness and accuracy that was unmatched by opposing counsel in court. Had I not hired them I have no doubt I would have lost everything in my divorce process. The entire Drexler Law Group is worth their weight in gold. Don’t make the same mistake I did and hire someone else first. They are the best, and I feel anyone would be hard pressed to find better representation than what I received.

Lawyers and Parachutes
If you're about to jump out of an airplane, you don't buy the cheapest parachute you can find. You don't pick one at random and hope it works. You're about to put your life in someone else's hands. Your family's life. My first lawyer I hired was cheap. He was worthless and it cost me tens of thousands of dollars that was ultimately wasted. My second lawyer I chose at random to get away from the first. She cared nothing about us or our family, and my children paid the price for over two years. Then, after many hours of research, we finally hired Teresa and Matt Drexler. The Drexler Law Firm helped us recover from what seemed to be a disastrous string of bad advice and callous indifference, and we finally started putting our family back together. Thank you, Teresa and Matt.

All around great experience
Teresa and her team was amazing, I was working overseas for majority of the matter and they were on top of everything and communicated with me about everything that was going on. They made the process super easy and it took a ton of stress off my shoulders. Highly recommend Drexler law firm. 110% would hire again. Thank you

Exceptional Representation during a divorce
I give my very highest recommendation for Teresa. I had an acrimonious divorce. Teresa helped me dismiss a contempt charge (it was frivolous), get a fair hearing, and secured a very favorable outcome despite the bad behavior from my ex's lawyer. She was mindful with her billing and gave me exceptional advice and representation. I had been through several divorce lawyers in Colorado Springs and Teresa was the best by far. Please do not hesitate to contact her.

Saved Me!
I met Teresa and the rest of the family at Drexler Law Group last summer when I transferred my case from another attorney. Teresa was able to recognize mistakes made by my old attorney and she went to work to make things right. Although the first part of my case was a nightmare before meeting Teresa, the Final Orders Hearing restored justice in my case. I can't tell you how much of a relief it was! Caitlin was my paralegal and was pleasant the entire time even though my financial records were a wreck at first (sorry Caitlin!).

Exceptional
Divorces are unfortunate, but I was incredibly fortunate have to found Teresa and her associates at The Drexler Law Group in the process. Although my divorce was relatively low in assets, it was fraught with emotional difficulties and personal beliefs. Teresa is knowledgeable, upfront and personable. I built a great rapport with her immediately and knew she was secure, capable, could handle my case and aggressively represent me well; regardless of personal beliefs. She is patient and skillful around the negotiation table. Her personal character and integrity is unmatched. Although my relationship with Teresa has always been professional, she makes me feel like a friend after each and every conversation. She worked tirelessly (even though she had many cases to deal with) and was in tune with the varied moods of divorce I experienced. I could not have been in better hands. Thank you, Teresa

Client
I have been extremely pleased with the results of my case with Teresa representing me. It has been a very difficult situation, as my former husband has not been very cooperative. Teresa was very successful in removing my name from business matters associated with my former marriage. I was also awarded more financially than I expected. Teresa and her entire staff handled my case in a very professional manner. They were always aware of my feelings and made things very comfortable for me.

Best choice I ever made for my daughter and my family
I decided after my 1st attorney fail with child custody, I was going to investigate and find someone at the top if I ever had to do it again. Well, I did 5 years later when her dad came back into her life. I hired Teresa after a consultation that made me feel more like a family member to them then a paycheck. She and Matt genuinely cared about what I had to say and realized this wouldn't be an easy case. She understood that the father had a way of getting around everything, and she was ready for it. They gave me my options all the way through and explained thoroughly. Everyone in the office was always polite and willing to help me with questions when I emailed/called. Teresa made sure we were ready for court and had everything we needed. We were able to settle in mediation and she helped me make sure my daughter's safety was taken seriously and addressed. The terms that were agreed upon were everything I wanted. I couldn't have asked for a better outcome. To this day, I will hands down hire them in a second if I ever needed. They will always be the group that helped me keep my daughter in safe environments and that is irreplaceable. I will be forever grateful for Teresa and the Drexler group.

Excellent family law attorney
For as little enjoyment that can come from a divorce, Teresa made the experience the best that it could possibly be. She was extremely caring in her interaction with both me and my children and came across as extremely knowledgeable with everything pertaining to current family law. If I ever have to hire an attorney again, Teresa will be the first place I go.

Outstanding Legal Representative
The Drexler law firm has helped me and my family out tremendously. Teresa demonstrated a ton of patience and understanding with me during this very emotional rollercoaster. What I appreciated the most was that she was able to provide firm and direct legal guidance while also being very sensitive and empathetic to my situation. I also appreciate all the help and professionalism their family shown me from the very first time I walked into their office. I would highly recommend both Matt and Teresa Drexler.

I would highly recommend Teresa. Divorce is hard enough, but Teresa and her team walked me through all the phrases so I wasn't wondering what was going to happen next. I was referred by a friend that knew someone that had used her service and was highly impressed.

Teresa is AWESOME!!
I retained Teresa to represent me for my child support case. The case was initially filed based upon the claim that retroactive child support should be levied due to a voluntary change in custody, which I contended was not true. Teresa was very creative in planning her strategy and in her thinking of how to highlight the jurisdictional issues that were in my favor. She listened carefully to my suggestions and worked with me to incorporate my needs into our filings with the court. I ALWAYS felt that Teresa was my strong advocate. She was honest about setting expectations for the outcome while maintaining a positive attitude. She paid great attention to detail and we went into the courtroom well prepared for the proceeding. I watched her representation of another client prior to selecting her as my attorney. Initially, I was confused by her questions and her presentation until I realized that she was very effectively weaving the fabric of her client's case without blatantly telling the judge what he should decide. I think that is a very effective method, at least for this particular judge. During my proceeding, she did an absolutely fantastic job. Her exceptional skill, demeanor and professionalism were unquestionably the reason that the judge decided in my favor on every issue that was presented. Her preparation and quick thinking during the hearing completely obliterated opposing counsel's arguments. The judgement in my case denied a huge retroactive child support payment to my former wife and ordered all the counseling and co-parenting that I had requested. I will be forever grateful to Teresa for doing such a wonderful job. Her efforts have essentially changed my life for the better. She is a magnificent attorney, but also a very nice and caring person, which is important when you are entrusting someone with such a huge aspect of your future. I would recommend Teresa wholeheartedly to anyone needing representation in a divorce or custody hearing. You simply will not find a better attorney!

Knowledge and Compassion All in One!
Going through any legal process is scary to the average person. You are trusting someone with an outcome that will greatly affect your life, where you have very little understanding of the proper steps of how to get there. Teresa and her staff walked me through every step, answered all of my questions, and didn't nickel and dime me for every little stamp! Not only that, but they did so with compassion and kindness, while maintaining complete professionalism and commendable assertiveness in the court room. Teresa has a grand gift of being totally organized and articulate, while caring for the heart of the person she is representing. I never felt like a number, or a dollar sign to Teresa! At the end of the day, Teresa accomplished amazing things for me within the complexities of my situation, and I was treated with a warmth that now feels like family. There is definitely something to be said for a family that works together for the greater good of someone else, and I have no doubt that that can be found at Drexler Law Group!

Teresa Drexler is a personable and dedicated lawyer. She took the time to understand the details of my case, fought for items that were most valuable to me, and counseled me on important issues. She impressed me with her professionalism and knowledge in court by thoroughly representing my case and stressing issues that were important to me. I would recommend Teresa Drexler as a lawyer who represents her clients with dedication, knowledge, and perseverance. She gets results and always looks out for the best interest of her clients.

A very friendly staff highly recommended
This is the first lawyer we have ever hired, but chose them over several interviews with others. The reason I chose them is I sensed they were very honest up front people. I felt I could trust them, and I was right. Teresa is very nice and down to earth all the while knowing the law inside and out. She never gave us false hopes or expectations,and took our budget into consideration. We did not have an easy or typical case, but we were over all happy with our results. This was a Fathers Rights case and we were long distance clients, so it was no easy task. We also really enjoyed Caitlyn our paralegal. She was very professional and was always able to answer any questions with promptness.
