Attorney Profile

A co-founder of Broxterman Alicks McFarlane PC, Heather Broxterman focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. Based in Denver, she represents clients throughout Colorado, and she has been admitted to practice before all Colorado state courts since 2011.

A significant portion of Ms. Broxterman's caseload is centered on her representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are thus having to deal with child custody and visitation, the division of complex assets and debts, and spousal and child support. Her extensive experience in mediation and collaborative law allows her to help many of her clients come to an accord on some of these matters through the use of those methods of alternative dispute resolution. However, Ms. Broxterman is a forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary or advisable.

Ms. Broxterman also assists clients who have already gotten a divorce and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting and support court orders. In addition, her experience includes international child abductions that are governed by the 1980 Hague Convention, same-sex parenting issues and civil union dissolutions. Ms. Broxterman's successful track record in all of these endeavors has earned her the respect of her colleagues, as evidenced by her receipt of a 10.0 "Superb" peer-review rating through Avvo.

While attending the University of Virginia as an undergraduate, Ms. Broxterman served as a research assistant on family law matters and wrote a thesis on the effect that divorce has on parenting before receiving a Bachelor of Arts in 2005. After graduation, she was a legal assistant at an international law firm before enrolling at the Georgetown University Law Center. Upon obtaining her Juris Doctor in 2010, Ms. Broxterman clerked for a judge in Colorado's 20th Judicial District before entering private practice.
