Selena S. Besirevic
Top Rated Family Law Attorney in Arvada, CO
- Free Consultation
Selena knew early on in her life that she wanted to work in the legal field for the sole purpose of helping those who feel like they are not being heard. She knew this was her life’s purpose even in high school. She finished her law degree in 2006 and has been working in the legal field ever since then in many various capacities. Because of her experience from many different angles and chairs of the legal field, she is able to examine her client’s needs from many different sides and offer options to the client so that the client can be in the driver’s seat of his or her own case.
Selena was born and raised in Bosnia and Hercegovina. She resettled in the USA in 1995 and has developed deep rooted passion for human rights and making sure every single human being is treated with dignity and respect. She transfers this passion into her family law work because she believes that clients who walk through her door are going through something most delicate, emotional, personal, difficult and challenging that they probably have ever had to go through in their lives. Selena knows that when the client sits down in her office, his or her life will be changing forever going forward. And they need someone with compassion, with understanding, someone who will fight for them and with them, and someone who wants to protect them not just because it’s Selena’s job but because Selena knows it’s the right thing to do.
Selena is also on the Board of Directors for the Colorado Collaborative Divorce Professionals where she passionately advocates for changes in the law for families and educating community about options when it comes to family law. Selena believes that not every family matter needs to end up in a court battle and in high conflict so she has made it her mission to be involved within her community in Colorado to promote the practice of law with as less conflict as possible. She believes that attorneys have a duty to minimize the conflict when it comes to such a sensitive area of people's lives, not create more conflict.
Selena is also heavily involved in the human rights work by serving on the Board of Directors for the national organization for migrants and refugees, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services based out of Baltimore and DC. She is currently serving her firth year on the Board. She is also on the Planning Committee for the same organization assisting in developing and organizing yearly human rights Academy held in DC, where she also presents and instructs students. She participates in advocacy efforts all throughout the country for the rights of human beings and is very proud to be a part of such movement.
When she is not advocating for her clients and for human rights around the country, Selena is spending time with her adventurous family either hiking with the husband when the two little ones give them a day off, or simply camping with entire family in hopes of building her album of memories to the fullest.
