Family Law

Mesa County Divorce Lawyers • Child Custody • Child Support Modifications

Filing for divorce is the most personal and emotional experience most people will ever endure in their lifetime. The complexity of the details involving custody arrangements, division of marital property and a final settlement involve legal wrangling and negotiations that can lead to making decisions that appear best in the short term, but can have a major negative impact in future years. Having an attorney who has a proven record of concern for protecting your rights now and five years from now can make a critical difference in your financial and familial well-being.

Attention to Detail Now to Avoid Regrettable Outcomes Later

At the law office of JAMES W. GIESE, P.C. your lawyer won't assume anything about your case. We take the time to get to know our family law clients personally, and that includes in-depth discussions about what you expect your future to look like in the months and years following your settlement or judgment. Under the direction of attorney James Giese, with more than 25 years of Colorado family law experience, our firm offers the highest level of compassionate, individualized representation.
