I am a graduate of the Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah and of the University of Denver College of Law. My practice focuses on all aspects of family law, including pre-divorce legal counseling, complex divorce litigation, alternative dispute resolution, mediation, preservation of financial assets, negotiation of child custody arrangements, child support, maintenance, and protection of parental rights.  I help women and men going through divorce navigate the process as smoothly as possible, working to minimize the impact of this difficult family time on the children involved. My experience includes case evaluations and legal counseling for parties considering divorce, as well as representing – in negotiations and trial – men and women in divorce disputes. Further, I help my clients negotiate child custody and support arrangements, as well as spousal maintenance. I also help my clients with alternative resolution of marriages, the protection and preservation of financial assets and the modification of prior orders related to maintenance, child support and child custody

Excellent Attorney
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Emily Roberts and her team. Emily made me feel heard and my wishes respected. Emily and her team always responded extremely quickly and her responses where kind and thoughtful. I am beyond grateful for her time and support. I can’t recommend her more highly.

Emily Roberts
I have been working on and off with Emily Roberts for almost 5 years now. She is a very driven and knowledgeable attorney that gives it her all and the best solutions for high conflict situations.. Not only does she steer you in the right direction during such a volatile, low point in your life she makes sure she is representing the best version of you. She sets you straight in a good way when you feel lost and helpless. She's always available and if not she lets you know when she's not and when to expect her to get back to you. She writes exceptionally well and keeps the communication going with the best strategy.
