Solution-Focused Family Law & Divorce Firm in Colorado

Our Denver divorce attorney and the rest of our team of legal professionals at Pesch Law Office PC stand behind our firm’s core belief when it comes to all matters regarding divorce: the only way out is through. We are solution-focused advocates and educators who deliver results with you and your family members’ best interests as our top priority.

We offer the following divorce services in the Denver metro area:

Mediation

We do our best to help you reach an amicable divorce resolution, and we have made it a priority to equip you with the right resources for doing so. We currently have a non-attorney professional mediator on our team with a master’s degree in conflict resolution to accomplish this.

What sets us apart from other mediators is our approach. The first key difference is that we promote open and honest communication and prefer to host our mediation meetings in person in the presence of both spouses and their attorneys. Our second differentiator is that we host mediation sessions in three-to four-hour blocks. This eliminates the need to rush to a decision for the sake of time.

Amicable Divorce

Divorce can be difficult on all family members involved. Therefore, we focus on amicable divorce as your first option. We do not rush to litigation right away as we want to help resolve your case in a way that is beneficial to all parties involved – especially children. An amicable divorce makes it more likely for you and your spouse to co-parent.

Litigation

Sometimes litigation is necessary to dissolve a marriage, as a court ruling is required to move forward. If you are looking for an experienced and confident courtroom presence to fight to protect your rights, we are here to support you. Having an attorney experienced in both trial practice and preparation as well as amicable divorce proceedings can make all the difference when it comes time to resolve your divorce.
