Burnham Law is a full-service family law firm with offices in Denver (Cherry Creek and Greenwood Village), Boulder, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins. We are a team of top-rated strategic litigators and negotiators who are experts in the field of Family Law. With hundreds of former client testimonials, our reputation speaks to this truth.
By working with us, we will help you develop a legal strategy to achieve your short-term and long-term goals so you can move forward with your life. Our attorneys have decades of experience in both mediation and litigation. Todd Burnham, our Founding Partner, was named one of the 10 best attorneys by the American Institute of Family Law, has been recognized by Super Lawyers for years and, like most of our attorneys, has a 10.0 Avvo rating with superb client satisfaction scores.
In an emotionally charged area of law, we believe in striking a balance between aggressive and compassionate representation. Taking into account your unique situation and goals, we develop a case-specific strategy and take lead in expertly preparing your case from beginning to end. We are shoulder to shoulder with you every step of the way.
At Burnham Law we believe in emotionally intelligent representation. Emotionally intelligent attorneys use data, strategy and thought in accordance with a communicated plan of action geared towards a successful outcome. They think about their actions and advice, understanding the raw nature of the situation, and they don’t exploit client’s fears. Emotionally intelligent lawyers see the forest through the trees and effectively save you from your emotions, while at the same time advancing your effectively strategized case towards a successful resolution.
Make no mistake about it, we are a litigation firm. But our attorneys are human beings who are driven to help their clients move forward with their lives. We protect assets, families, and empower clients through their adversity. This philosophy, shared by the entire Burnham Law team, resonates in every case we handle.
My parents divorced when I was a baby. I’m an only child, and I was raised by my mother in Upstate New York. My mother worked for the New York State Division of Social Services, advocating for at-risk youths. I didn’t spend significant time with my father. My uncle was more of a role model in my life. People stepped up throughout my life to support me, beginning and ending with my mother. She was strong when others cowered, and she always prioritized my health and welfare over all else. I now have my own family, and it too is highlighted by the presence of another a strong independent woman: my awesome wife.
Growing up, I always wanted to be a veterinarian. I certainly didn’t want to be a divorce attorney, but it makes sense why I’m here. I understand family law and I fully appreciate the practice’s intersection with child development. My full appreciation of all developmental milestones, coupled with my commitment to studying human nature, makes us a formidable child-centered law firm.
I don’t believe in advocating for a sex (i.e. Men’s Rights Firms). Burnham Law is largely comprised of women. This doesn’t make us a Mother’s Rights Firm. But it may have something to do with why we are regularly considered the best family law firm in Colorado. Moms and Dads daily involvement is directly related to their child’s development. In an ideal world, both parents share custody and are effective co-parents, focusing on the best interests of their child. That requires that both parents are physically, emotionally and psychologically capable of, and committed to, being the best parent they can be. We strategize with your child in mind. And our priority is their development and happiness.
My primary focus has and will continue to be one thing: the pursuit of excellence. To that end, I have been unrelenting in maintaining standards of excellence at Burnham Law. The lawyers here have earned their place at this firm. They have either been personally trained by me or have independently developed their own standards and reputation. We only have the best and the brightest working together here at Burnham Law. Divorce sucks. But your lawyer shouldn’t.
At Burnham Law, we utilize all the tools available to us under the law. We are driven by results. We see the big picture and we succeed where others fail.
This is Colorado family law at the highest level. And, frankly, nobody does it better.
– Todd Burnham, Founding Partner
