Family Law and Domestic Law cases are proceedings that are considered “Civil Matters” that are governed by the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure, Rules of Evidence, and the prior rulings or holdings of the Colorado Supreme Court and Colorado Court of Appeals, otherwise known as “case law.” Each case is to be decided upon the specific facts and circumstances of that case. An experienced Family Law Attorney must have a comprehensive understanding of the law. But, in many cases, that kind of knowledge may not be enough. This is where experience comes in.

The Difference Between a Lawyer With Over 30 Years of Experience and One Without, Is that the Most Experienced Lawyer Has Seen and Been A Part of Many More Kinds of Cases, In and Out of the Courtroom!
Many lawyers profess their experience by declaring their involvement in divorce or custody cases for just the past few years. Some have recently left the government and decided to venture out into the world of Family Law. As in any profession there is a “learning curve” that must be met before a professional can reach a level of proficiency. Clearly, reaching a level of proficiency as a Family Law Attorney, can not be achieved overnight, or even in 5 years. Clearly, that kind of experience requires years of dedication and training. It also takes the handling of hundreds of cases with many different and divergent factual scenarios, to obtain the proper level of experience. It takes devotion to the craft of practicing Family Law, and many years of going into mediations, settlement conferences and all kinds of hearings, before any lawyer can say that he or she is truly “experienced.”
An Experienced Family Law Attorney should be defined not only by what he has done, but by what he has not done. This means that the more cases a lawyer has appeared in court before judges, the more that lawyer can profess to having had the benefit of understanding how judges handle a variety of issues that will directly impact the client. To reach that level of experience, a lawyer should be able to explain to the client what kinds of results are achievable and what method should be employed in trying to reach those goals.

Gordon’s experience is measured by the cases he has handled during every process of the legal system. By possessing the skills necessary to effectively represent clients, there is always an effort to identify client’s goals and objectives. In doing so, there is a concerted effort towards identifying the legal issues and challenges of each case. solely, there is a great deal of dedication to studying the law, reading the applicable case law and attending seminars throughout the year that focus
