The absolute best choice in Family Law in COS!
The entire staff at Marrison Family Law is top notch! Having been a client for 2.5 years during my DV divorce and custody case, I can say with out a doubt that I made the best choice in law firm. You can tell that every client matters to the owner Pat Marrison and the firm. Mark Bosworth and his paralegal Shannon have been nothing short of outstanding through the entire process- and I did not have an easy divorce case. They handled every aspect of the case with professionalism, support and are both extremely knowledgeable and well versed in the process of family law cases. I was awarded full custody of my children and Mark and his team fought to make sure that was the outcome. I cannot recommend them enough! When you are going through a hard situation and need someone strong by your side, Marrison Family Law is the best choice!

Marrison Family Law Saved Me From Catastrophe
A friend referred me to Dominic J. Perrino and told me that he was helping her navigate a contentious adversary who was negatively affecting her children and was causing great distress for her whole family. She told me that Mr. Perrino was compassionate, highly efficient, helped her with the documentation, and listened carefully to her needs. I had spent several months contacting about 42 divorce lawyers in the Colorado Springs area, but I finally decided to go with Marrison Family Law because of my friend’s recommendation. Mr. Perrino did not disappoint — far from it, and he came up with strategies for me that solved seemingly impossible problems, saved me tens of thousands of dollars, and was able to assist me in negotiating a divorce settlement that made the difference between walking away with enough to start my life over or ending up in a protracted fight and financially catastrophic outcome which is the likely fate I was facing. My paralegal, Rene, has given me appropriate, focused attention, responded quickly and efficiently to every inquiry I’ve made, at the same time that she and my lawyer have worked very hard to keep my fees to a minimum. As a result, I was able to get through this extremely painful and harrowing process in roughly 100 days with competent, caring support. I have full confidence that they are fully invested in my success and truly care about my well-being. A professional staff member at Marrison Family Law answers the phone every single time I have called during business hours. They respond to my e-mail communications usually within the same day or no later than the next business day. They are consistently professional, courteous, and efficient. I am eternally grateful to Dominic, Rene, the support staff, and Ms. Marrison for providing a level of personalized and professional service that I would never have been able to find at a big-name law firm. Also, unlike other practices I have researched, they do not have a policy of intentionally aggravating emotions in order to create conflict between the parties so that they can increase their charges. Quite the opposite, they were completely cooperative to my insistence that I maintain a stance of peace during the divorce process. They made sure that I didn’t incur any unnecessary charges so my total divorce costs were about a third of what I expected — and I am fantastically happy about that. I must also give credit where credit is due; this outcome heavily depended upon the cooperation of the other party to a peaceful process. Everyone has a unique situation and experience with their divorce, so your experience might be different but I highly recommend Marrison Family Law because they are truly focused on my success, are cost-conscientious, and they were able to provide efficient, personalized, creative strategies for problem solving. Finally, and most importantly, I believe that my friend’s referral to Mr. Perrino was Divinely directed. Thanks be to God for His provision, protection, and guidance! Blessings, An eternally grateful client

Highly recommended
Pat and her firm were highly recommended to me. My first lawyer went on maternity leave (she was awesome!) and Pat stepped in to help. She was kind, professional, and very supportive of my difficult and long case.

Thank you Krys!

Amazing!
What a delightful experience and one I wasn’t expecting honestly after talking to so many. Rex and Pat were a breath of fresh air. I spoke with Pat mostly, a true expert in her field with intelligence and experience beyond my expectation. She was just sharp, informative and on point with everything I needed to discuss. Great wisdom and insight from a person who I feel like has been in every situation possible. There was nothing I inquired about that she didn’t have a direct answer for. I highly recommend this group. There seems to be a great network of professionals associated with these two. They are in the know!

Great service
I don’t think I can fully thank and show extreme thankfulness to Pam, I had concerns about stopped child support payments from the non-custodial parent given the new living dynamics that had just occurred. She answered all of my questions and even went over everything for me again to fully allow me to understand my legal rights. I reached out to 8 other firms and this the only one that offered not only a FREE consultation but I didn’t have to pay a retainer to get legal advice. If, I ever need representation I would love for Pam to be by my side.

Good at their job
If you haven’t called Marrison Family Law to settle disputes, you need to get on that phone now. I have seen the ugly side of my family fighting over property like vultures. I wholly encourage you to avoid the stress and hire people who know what they’re doing.

I want to wholeheartedly thank the attorneys
I recommend hiring Marrison Family Law with absolutely no reservations for any domestic violence cases. I want to wholeheartedly thank the attorneys not just for a complete slam-dunk case but also for protecting my daughter and helping to give her a new lease on life now.

Your team is very empathetic and very thorough
Marrison Family Law should be the first call for anyone going through a divorce. Thank you so much Ms. Patricia. I don’t think I can thank you enough for the incredible amount of insight you provided. Your team is very empathetic and very thorough. I felt that the entire team was well-informed about my case and able to answer any questions I had. I felt cared for and like I had a fighting chance with your team. Thanks again!

They are very professional
It is not an exaggeration to say that the ease in my life today is because of Marrison Law and their efficiency in anticipating the post judgment issues of my “so-called” mutually agreed divorce. They are very professional, highly knowledgeable, and diligent in following up and preparing legal documents. I highly recommend them, if you want to successfully get through your divorce.

Marrison Law was very professional and helpful with a difficult situation that we could not seem to finalize on our own. Their team was very timely in answering any questions that came up. I am very satisfied with the quality of their work and the outcome of my case.

I'm grateful
I am so grateful to Marrison Family Law for helping me divorce my husband and getting me the spousal support we were hoping for. I was sure that I was't getting a dime from him, but these are some pretty hardcore lawyers who will fight for you and your rights. I' very grateful to them and that they seemed to understand where I was coming from. I always got updates, and there was always someone to take my call. Outstanding professionalism and I highly recommend them to everyone who needs a reasonable divorce attorney to help them.

Thankful especially to the staff because they were always ready to take my calls
I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to get good lawyers for the divorce process if you feel you have a partner who won’t be easy to deal with. I don’t think I’ve ever been so glad that I’ve consulted with Marrison Family Law and hired their services to help me deal with my soon-to-be ex-wife, and if I didn’t have them, I’m pretty sure I’d be left with nothing. Thankful especially to the staff because they were always ready to take my calls and always gave me the heads-up on the updates.

They’re true specialists at what they do
I absolutely 100% recommend these lawyers if you’re going through a divorce and trying to get custody of your child. I wholeheartedly appreciate how they looked so thoroughly into my case, even though they must have a million other divorce cases. I’m glad to have such thorough people helping me get custody of my child because I honestly believe I would not have had as much leverage as I do now without them. They’re true specialists at what they do, and they will fight for you, which I appreciate and am very thankful for. I’m a lot more confident in where I stand now.

I’ve won custody of my kids.
I’ve been fighting for custody of my children for going on three years. Unfortunately, my ex-husband is a man of standing, and he makes more money than I do, so the courts had initially considered him as better for bringing up our kids. But with Marrison Family Law’s help, I’ve won custody of my kids. They helped me prove that my ex has been mentally and emotionally abusing our kids, controlling them in unreasonable ways, and that he’s not taking an actual active role in parenting them. If anything, his mother is the one raising them, not him! I was able to show that I’ve got a better job now, a bigger home, and most of all, they helped give a voice to my kids who want to stay with me. I recommend them for child custody cases, one hundred percent.

I am wholeheartedly recommending any woman who needs help
I can’t thank the good people at Marrison Family Law enough. I am a domestic violence survivor, and I have been fighting for justice in the hands of my abusive ex for nearly two years now. I just can’t see him get off scot-free and do this to another woman or something. The lawyers helped me ensure that my case was airtight, and most importantly, they kept my head in the game. I can’t tell you how many times I thought my case was going to be useless, hopeless, dismissed due to lack of evidence or all that. No, they helped me handle everything, and they helped me find the strength to overcome it all. They helped me gather up the evidence I needed; they presented my case so well, and most importantly, they gave me a fighting chance where I was sure there was none. I am wholeheartedly recommending any woman who needs help to go to them and give themselves a chance.

This is EXACTLY why I recommend Marrison Family.
I one hundred percent recommend Marrison Family Law if you’ve got yourself in a noose with a highly toxic ex who about refuses to budge on anything. Even when it’s her fault! To say my divorce was turbulent would be a massive understatement—Kelsey refused to listen to any reason, and she got violent. I would NOT allow that in front of my kids and the rest of the family. I was positive that she only dragged this on for my military benefits, and I knew I needed lawyers that knew how to deal with that. This is EXACTLY why I recommend Marrison Family. They know everything about military divorce, plenty of experience handling it (especially the nasty ones!), and they know how to get you out of that mess. I didn’t even know you could bring up your ex’s mental state and have that officially dealt with, too, so there’s a record. I can’t thank this firm enough; I can’t advise others sufficient to get a good lawyer if you want to get out of a terrible situation.

The attorneys did an exceptional job
I say this with no exaggeration: Marrison Family Law helped save my son’s life. As his parents, even we had fears and doubts going into a domestic violence case where the woman is the abuser. My son had always expressed fear that he wasn’t going to be believed and that his wife was now going to paint him as the one who had harmed her despite all the evidence to the opposite. The attorneys did an exceptional job in the documentation and ensured that they got all the pertinent facts and information from us and everyone involved. As a result, my son’s name is clear, and we got justice for what has been done to him by his now soon-to-be ex-wife. Who knows what could’ve happened otherwise.

We ended up with what I feel is something fair for both her and me
Thank you, Marrison Family Law! It has been three long years, but we finally received justice. My ex-wife tried everything she can to get every cent off me (including money meant for our kids!), and for a while there, I thought she might get it. But the attorneys made sure that my kids’ interests and mine were very well protected. We ended up with what I feel is something fair for both her and me, and I get custody of the children. And I just hope that with that, we can put this all behind us.

This firm helped free my brother from hell
With my whole heart, thank you, Marrison Family, for what you’ve done for my brother. For me, it’s like it’s so tough for men to be taken as seriously as women do when it comes to domestic violence. But my brother is a good, kind man who was truly abused and taken advantage of by an evil person. This firm helped free my brother from hell he’s endured AND helped him and my family get the peace of mind that we’d hoped for. I can’t thank you enough. I can’t recommend you enough. Thank you for being so thorough and professional and most of all, thank you for treating my brother’s case so thoughtfully and with such importance.

I honestly can’t thank the firm enough for all they’ve done
I want to commend the staff at Marrison Family Law for handling my divorce so professionally and so effectively at all times. My now ex-wife is from a privileged upbringing, and she did take out what was practically HER family’s entire law team at me, but Marrison family never let me down for a second. There were occasions when things did become pretty heated across the table, but everyone handled it with outstanding professionalism because god knows, I could barely keep it together myself. It’s all over now, and I honestly can’t thank the firm enough for all they’ve done for me at this end.
