Attorney Profile

Tia’s practice focuses on family law matters with an emphasis on Collaborative Divorce—an alternative to a litigated divorce. As a former civil litigator, Tia has represented clients in claims for defective construction, insurance recovery, breach of contract, and other various commercial disputes. Tia’s broad array of legal experience and ability to connect with her clients allows her to provide mindful, comprehensive solutions to complex problems—always making the right decision, at the right time, for the right reasons. A Collaborative Divorce allows Tia’s clients to focus on the things that are most important to them and provides them with control during the process. Clients work together in a respectful way while protecting their children from conflict.  Collaborative Divorce clients make the decisions for the ending of their relationship, as opposed to a judge or third-party decision-maker. Think of it as a series of extended negotiations.  Tia’s clients find that the Collaborative Divorce process is transparent, fair, creative, and cost-conscious. Client fees are focused on the resolution process, not trial preparation.  While every divorce has a psychological impact, Tia’s focus is on reducing conflict while reaching resolutions to uncomfortable issues. Tia is consistently ranked among the best in her field. Tia was named a Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2013 and 2014, Colorado Super Lawyer 2015 – 2021 and has been named Colorado Super Lawyer's Top 50 Women for 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019,2020 & 2021. She has published articles and delivered presentations all over Colorado on a variety of topics.
