About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Robert L. Pomper started his legal career in Chicago and came from one of the largest and most prestigious family law firms where he was director of litigation. Not only did Mr. Pomper have his own full caseload where he successfully litigated or negotiated many complex divorce/custody cases, but he also managed cases for the entire office to ensure that the firm’s clients and the attorneys were a successful team. He would meet regularly with the firm’s attorneys to help employ effective strategies to suit the particular facts of the case and the needs of the client.

Over the 29 years he has been practicing, he has represented many satisfied clients and always believes that it is important to really listen to what is most important to your client. It is then key to set out an effective strategy with the understanding that this may change, as necessary, in light of the many variables involved in the case. Having a regular, open dialogue with your client is one of the most effective, yet underutilized, tools in effective representation.

Mr. Pomper was born and raised right outside of Chicago and graduated with honors from the University of Chicago where he majored in PERL, an acronym for Politics, Economics, Rhetoric, and Law. He attended Tulane Law School and graduated near the top of his class.

After practicing law in Chicago for 18 years, Mr. Pomper moved to Colorado where he could be near the mountains and enjoy time outdoors. He is licensed in both Colorado and Illinois. He enjoys handling all aspects of family law, including contested cases involving children as well as complex financial cases. Robert handles cases all over the Denver metropolitan area as well as El Paso and Pueblo.

Great Support
Robert Pomper has been my lawyer and go to subject matter expert for all my post decree issues regarding the custody of my kid since 2013. I have needed Robert many times through the years and will continue to rely on Robert in the coming years. Having to continually deal with a high conflict parallel parenting situation, Robert is always able to bring calmness to very stressful and emotional situations, able to provide clarity and peace of mind through his strategies and is extremely professional and will advocate for your case effectively. I highly recommend and do refer Robert to anyone needing guidance during these times in their life. You will not regret having Robert by your side.

You must hire this attorney—the best!!!
I had to go through 2 other attorneys to strike gold. I was beginning to lose hope until I was lucky enough to get referred to Robert Pomper. He immediately gave me hope and came up with a great strategy and explained everything along the way while always explaining the costs and be benefits to every decision. My ex was trying to drain me financially and emotionally. When it turned out that there would be no way to settle my case due to the outrageous demand of my ex, Mr. Pomper was there by my side and with detailed preparation, and great skill and finesse, made a great court presentation and convinced the Court to rule in my favor. He is great in court and blew my ex’s attorney away. Also he is very efficient so it was not as expensive as I was told it could be. I have referrred him cases and he is truly the best!

Great Lawyer!
I wish that I had hired Robert Pomper from the beginning of my divorce proceedings. My previous two lawyers did not give me all options to explore for custody for my children. I agreed to 50/50% custody and joint decision making when my children were three. I thought that things would get better for my children and we could co-parent together effectively. This was not the case, I was in a high conflict situation with my ex about decisions that should be easy. My friend recommend Robert and I scheduled a consult with him. I retained Robert, because he had strategies for my case and how to execute them. Long story short, I have retained Robert two times…and wow what a difference he has made in our lives. The first time I retained him, he helped get my children in therapy and obtain more custody. A year later, things were still not working for my children at the other house, so I went back for more custody and decision making. Robert was a master with negotiating with my ex to get this for my children. My ex was very angry at times, but Robert explained his options to him in a fair and calm manner. He even deescalated my angry ex and we were able to work together for a resolution. I received custody and decision making without going to court, thanks to Robert. He is always prepared and advocates what is best for children. My children are now eight and I have had full time custody for almost a year. Robert has a great professional demeanor, along with a welcomed sense of humor making the situation bearable and this allowed me to remain calm/sane and focus on the well-being of my children during a tumultuous time in my life. Robert developed a collaborative working relationship with me and made me feel like I was his only client and worked diligently to achieve a positive parenting outcome for me and a better life for my children. I will forever be grateful to Robert for all he has done for our family! I would readily recommend his services.

The very best
I wish I had hired Robert Pomper from the beginning of the divorce proceedings. My first attorney did not keep me informed of the proceedings and when we went to court for temporary orders, ended up pushing me to agree to pay too much to my wife with no legal basis and for limited parenting time. My bow ex wife was very difficult and tried to bad mouth me to whom ever would listen and affect my relationship with our two children. I felt so helpless and did not know what to do. A friend told me I needed to consult with Mr. Pomper who helped her through a nasty divorce and post decree issues and said she tells all of her friends he is the only divorce attorney in the Denver area to use. She finally convinced me to make an appointment with Mr. Pomper. From the beginning I could sense Mr. Pomper was very attentive to me as well as detailed oriented and had an amazing grasp of my situation in a very short time and helped me see where I was in this confusing divorce process and then came up with strategies to turn this around. I felt hope for the first time in how to nagivate through this horribly complex system. I retained him on the spot and fired my first attorney. He seems very interested in helping me and was very compassionate. As soon as I retained him, I noticed a world of difference. He and his wonderful paralegal, Jenny, kept me in the loop every step if the way. He filed what needed to be filed and always was very careful of costs. He was excellent in always providing a kind of cost/ benefit analysis as to what made sense to dinand when. Mr. Pomper took on my wife's attorney and I final felt like I had a strong advocate. The momentum finally started turning around. Soon, I was able to get the time I wanted with my children and my wife did not get anything near what she was demanding regarding th children and financial issues. I have a business and he was not only excellent and knowledge for children issues but was great at understanding all aspects of our financial situation which my previous attorney, in retrospect, did not. When we went to court, he was prepared, strong and articulate. I could see the judge listening which was not the case with my first attorney. He is the best. Although he was always professional, my now ex- wife still is angry I got rid of my first attorney and hired someone so good.

Post Divorce Decree
It's amazing, even now, that I had almost given up on trying to fix the problems with my original Separation Agreement that was decades old. My ex thought he could get away with anything. I had tried to hire a previous attorney, but it just went around in circles and I thought there would never be progress. I almost gave up thinking there was no solution. I then retained Robert Pomper and he was able to understand the obstacles I had been living with and he came up with a comprehensive strategy and was aggressive, when appropriate, not allowing my ex to get away with anything. Furthermore, Mr. Pomper kept me focused, staying on track and directed me towards completing the emotionally challenging work of going through this exhaustive process. We finally got a great result, and I can't thank him enough.

Best Family Law Attorney in Denver, Colorado
There is no doubt in my mind that Robert Pomper is the best family law attorney in Denver. One reason that I know this is because I have spent the last 36 years in the legal business. I know lawyers, their styles and limitations. Robert took the time to learn every detail and nuance of my case. He then fought aggressively for my best interests and obtained an excellent outcome. In addition to his superb legal representation, Robert provided encouragement and insight in the difficult moments that every divorce experiences. Do not hire another lawyer without meeting with Robert Pomper first.

Divorce Case
Robert Pomper was outstanding when it came to representation of my divorce case.

Mr. Robert Pomper is amazing!
After meeting with multiple attorney's and even hiring one we were referred to Mr. Robert Pomper who has ended up being a huge blessing in our lives. He took a situation that seemed hopeless due to circumstances and threats in which we thought would hold in court and not only reassured us but guided us down a path that has prevented the devastation we seemed to face. He began our journey by fighting for the well-being of a 12 year old child which was amazing. It wasn't about hurting the other party, his fight entailed protecting this child and his dads rights. He counseled us on every matter, made suggestions and took extremely professional actions. We are still going through the process and he continues to stand strongly beside us. Mr. Pomper is not only an excellent attorney but an amazing person that genuinely cares about his clients and not just his "job". He has left a life long imprint on every one of my family members hearts as he has prevented and saved a very amazing man from a great amount of distress that could have devastated his future. There are no words to express the gratitude that we feel for his professional guidance, his knowledge as to what needed to be done in an extremely difficult case and his sincerity throughout the process. I would recommend Mr. Robert Pomper to anyone in need of an excellent person that brings his heart to the core of his position as an attorney when defending his clients.

Mr. Pomper is the best!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mr. Pomper. He was my third attorney and the second one at the Harris Law Firm. He was communicative, smart and know instinctively what was important and what was not. He kept me informed every step of the way. He can be aggressive when the situation calls for it without making things worse. He is a true professional in court and I cannot get over the way the judge just seemed to stop everything and listen to his well reasoned and articulate arguments. He ran circles around the other attorney. If you ever need a family law attorney, Mr. Pomper is the best!

Always by my side and never let me down
Robert saved me from myself when I was emotionally defenseless and ignorant of the complicated legal divorce process. He did this by taking the time to genuinely know me as a person in every aspect, and applying this insight to his formidable experience and education. From this, he strategized an approach that was optimized for my very specific needs and explained every step of the process to me. I was a highly reluctant participant, but he kept me engaged by informing me of every conceivable and potential pro/con impact for critical decisions. At no point during this painful process did I question his commitment to my cause, and he always kept me calm and focused despite intense emotional interference. Robert was there for me every step of the way, professionally and personally. Money simply cannot buy the level of support he sincerely provided on my behalf.

Fantastic attorney and experience
Robert Pomper is a fantastic attorney and l would recommend him to anybody. I had been through 2 previous attorneys before I switched to Mr. Pomper. He was very responsive and knew the law. He also put together a great strategy. Before long, my case began to turn around for the first time. My ex's attorney now knew we meant business. Robert is aggressive when he needs to be and has a great presence in court. I wish I had him the whole time but feel so lucky to have found him. He is the best!

Mr. Pomper is a great attorney
I went to Mr. Pomper a few months ago after having discharged my previous attorney. He listened very well and came up with a strategy. I was so stressed out and not used to such attention to my case. My wife wanted blood and Mr. Pomper, an excellent litigator, was ready to fight. However, he knew that I wanted to try to settle, if possible, so he used brilliant negotiation techniques and I received a fantastic settlement in a reasonable amount of time.

A Fighter for Fathers and what's in Their Kids' Best Interests
When I approached Mr. Pomper, I had approached him with a challenge. I basically had given up on the system and didn’t know if anyone could make life better for my children. To sum the incidents prior to meeting Mr. Pomper, I had been attempting to complete a divorce via the web in 2006 because it should have been easy. We had been living apart since 2005, and visitation with my two children had been established. Gradually, however, my wife decided that my phone contact and visitation should be decreased dramatically. The day after I had informed her that I had an attorney and that she legally couldn’t stop me from seeing my children, she had me served with an order of protection—April of 2006. My attorney at that time went to court on the order of protection and lost a hearing I Mr. Pomper would have lost. Additionally, I had left the courtroom with the understanding that I would not see my children for two years. I called my attorney’s office to verify that belief and to verify with the court that I couldn’t see my children for two years. The attorney verified that belief, but I called the court and discovered that I could have visitation with my children. Needless to say, I fired the firm. I was constantly being shut down by the judge and experiencing months of delays by my wife’s law firms. Contact with my children diminished to less than 24 hours a month, and any supervised visitation I had was cut short because of location restrictions, her showing up late, and other reasons. It seemed that whatever she wanted, she received in court: less time with my children, more and more money—building up to 62% of my net income. Every time I went to court, new false accusations came, and I lost. It seemed that the court system simply considered me a part of the divorce process but not a father. The court seemingly made me a visitor to my children and not a father, not someone who was free to love his children and share in their lives and tell them he was proud of them and that he loved them whenever he wanted to. When I was allowed to speak with my children, I sometimes listened to them cry and tell me they missed me and just wanted to be with me. As a father who loves his children very much, hearing their sorrow and dealing with the situation was incredibly difficult to deal with. Her umbrageous attempts to demoralize me without considering the consequences of my children’s well being seemed to be supported by the court, and I couldn’t stand walking into the courtroom. Then I hired Mr. Pomper. He made me feel very comfortable from the very beginning. He took the time to actually listen to what I had to say as a father and listened to my concerns. He looked at the paperwork I had collected over the 11 months of the proceedings. I really did not have high hopes because the case had gone so badly and that it only seemed that it would worsen. Mr. Pomper informed me that he thought he could turn it around and was interested in the case, letting me know that I would get to unsupervised visitation with my children. He did not mislead me; he informed me to think of the case as constructing a building brick by brick, that gradually we will win hearings and construct the whole building. From Mr. Pomper’s first appearance, we began winning hearings, gradually increasing my time with my children and increasing unsupervised time. The flood of money pouring out of my pocket stopped and reversed. He called me and showed interest in me as a person and my children’s well being. He made himself available whenever I needed advice and counseled me well. He constantly wanted to know how my children were doing, how the visitations went, how the time between visitations went as far as contact, and how I was doing in both my personal life as well as work. He demonstrated a true interest in me as a client. Never did I expect such care from a law firm. Today my children and I play, laugh, goof around, and do whatever they want to do. That’s what our relationship had been like before the divorce; that’s

The best Family Law Attorney
I have had 3 different divorce attorneys and Mr. Pomper is by far the best. He is very knowlegable and was in regular contact with me during the proceedings. He was aggressive in court when the situation required and the judge listened to me for the first time. I called to refer a case but he is no longer at same firm and may have moved but receptionist refused to give me any information.
