Georgina is a class act
Georgina began working on our child custody an divorce case over 5 years ago. Though she was able to open and close our difficult case within a year, I have been fortunate to consult with her since that time. She is wise, honest, helpful, and ‘tows the line’ in sticky situations perfectly! Highly recommend.

Highly professional service that I would highly recommend to anybody!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the team of people over at Kalamaya Goscha, especially the services of Ms. Georgina Melbye. Since the very beginning of my DUI case, she was there making sure that I felt comfortable and in the know with everything going on. Being that it was my very first court case ever, the whole process felt pretty scary and overwhelming. Having Georgina there made everything clearer, less confusing, and and overall just took a lot of anxiety off my plate. When it came to the sentencing of my case, instead of simply settling on the normal sentence the judge would typically address in this scenario, Georgina spent months and months fighting to get me a better plea deal from the DA. In the end, she did exactly that, and I am so grateful. She is professional, she works hard for her clients, and most importantly she is just really good people. Easy to communicate with, straightforward, nonjudgemental and compassionate. I can’t thank Georgina and the entire team and Kalamaya Goscha enough for their time and services through such a scary and uncomfortable time. Would highly recommend to anyone going through any legal troubles.

My first time having to get a Lawyer
Sometimes mistakes are made in life and circumstances require legal representation. This was my first time having to get a lawyer and I cannot tell u how happy I was that I went with Kalamaya/ Goscha. Georgina did everything she said she would do and fought for the best outcome possible. She took the time to communicate all the legalities concerning my case and in a way that gave me confidence for a positive outcome in my case. I am grateful for how my case ended and would recommend Georgina to anyone who needs a lawyer

Great job!
Georgina did a terrific job with my case. Being charged with a DUI, but she successful got it down to a DWAI without any jail time. Very friendly, down to earth and easy to talk with. She is well respected by the judge and other public prosecutors. Thank you again for all the work and I would highly recommend her if you get in any sort of drinking and driving incidents.

Bogas DUI
Most competent attorney I have been involved with. as a business owner I have been exposed to many attorneys Georgina did not handle my case as most would; she did not just act like she cared, she cared. The positive result is proof.

Best Lawyer in Colorado
Georgina has to be one of the best lawyers in the state of Colorado. Other than being very intelligent, she is very dependable and resourceful. I would recommend her any day and glad I was able to have such a professional lawyer to have my back. My case was dismissed and it could not have been done without the help of Georgina.

Help During Alcohol Arrest
Georgina was extremely helpful throughout my DUI process. She accurately guided my expectations immediately after my arrest and was very understanding during a difficult experience. She spoke intelligently and effectively on my behalf during the DMV phone hearing with the arresting officer. She also accompanied me in court for sentencing and helped reach a DWAI plea agreement with the DA. The entire process proceeded as Georgina had predicted with no major surprises. Georgina was consistently available by phone and email to answer my questions and prepare for each event. I'm extremely grateful I sought her council from the beginning.

DWIA Case
Georgina was hired to help me with a second offense DUI case. There was a discrepancy in the pullover which she helped me win the case with the DMV. I retained my drivers license and did not have to have a breathalyzer in the car. I was pleased with the outcome of the court DWIA ruling and deferred judgement that will remove the DWIA off my driving record in two years. Georgina was a exceptional to work with, I was very pleased and would recommend her.

Get work on my DUI
Georgina was great! She made the whole process really easy, I was able to sit back and let her do the work through the whole process. She did a fantastic job of keeping me informed and in the loop whenever nessicary. She helped me reach a deal with the DA and was able to refund a portion of my retainer. Thanks Georgina and RKV Law.

Intelligent Compassionate Fierce
Ms Melbye represented me in 2014/2015. After 30+ years I was served divorce papers by my husband and his very experienced team. Ms. Melbye represented me in a full day contempt hearing brought against my estranged husband and a long two day trial on the divorce. She was brilliant in court. Well organized, well spoken and fierce. She had the respect of the judge. One of my husband's more seasoned attorneys was confident that this young woman could be intimidated and more than once during the three days we spent in court he was effectively left stammering. Ms Melbye never lost sight of the facts of the case and provided me excellent representation. She was very responsive to text messages and emails, on time for meetings and returned phone calls promptly. She kept me in the loop regarding court orders and notices and trial dates. At the end of a miserable, drama filled, two year process I emerged empowered. I was fortunate to have Georgina Melbye in my corner.
