Never settle for less over the things that mean the most. Thank you Jennifer, your dedication is inspirational, your poise is poetic, and your impact will forever contribute to my life forward.

I cannot say enough about the Burnham Law Firm and Jennifer Scott and her staff. Jennifer and Todd Burnham were able to navigate me through a very tough, high-conflict divorce. Jennifer Scott is a true professional who is very savvy and truly cares about the outcome for her clients. Through the Burnham Law Firm, I was able to move forward with my life in a positive direction after a very tough divorce. I can’t express enough how fortunate I was to have Jennifer and the staff of the Burnham Law Firm on my side.

I hired Jennifer Scott as my divorce attorney for an extremely contentious divorce in Denver last year that involved children. I liked Jennifer from our first meeting. She was extremely thorough, patient and non-judgmental. She absorbed the facts, understood and created the strategy for the divorce, and knew the strengths and more importantly knew how to defend the weaknesses in our case. Although my ex-wife hired one of the other top divorce attorneys in Colorado, Jennifer meticulously defended me and was expert at using a variety of resources and avenues to most effectively present our case. Jennifer is extremely cool under pressure and was very quick to respond to me by phone, email or text. She also thoroughly answered all of my random questions and never made me feel bad for asking them, or like I was wasting her time. We ended up in multiple mediation attempts and had to deal with a number of motions and Temporary Orders during my yearlong divorce. I felt professionally represented at every turn and was very happy that she anticipated almost every one of my thoughts and comments. My divorce ended up going to trial / Permanent Orders and I was once again impressed that Jennifer was as expert in her field during trial as she was doing written motions and mediation. During trial, she found a number of ways to have success during her cross-examinations and also did a great job of ensuring my testimony best presented our case. In the end, even with very complicated income issues, the judge clearly leaned with our side (because of her) and the ultimate judgement was better than I would have ever expected given the facts and circumstances. For anyone looking for top notch divorce counsel in Colorado (and she doesn’t charge outrageous rates!), I would give an unequivocal recommendation for Jennifer Scott. Thank you Jennifer.

Jennifer Scott and Burnham Law are the definition of excellence. Jennifer helped me navigate a complex emergency restriction and modification process. Despite a high conflict co-parent and opposing council, Jennifer represented my case with highest level of professionalism and integrity. Her courtroom and litigation performance command respect. It became clear in our proceedings that her knowledge of the law, her preparation and her presentation put her in control. In fact, she was acknowledged by the courtroom judge as being one of the best attorneys in the state in her field- you will be hard pressed to find a better endorsement than that!

Jennifer understood my case and my objectives intimately and pursued them passionately. Regardless of her case load, she was always responsive and available to the needs of my case. She never had to review a file or brush up on details, she knew it inside and out and she fought for my child like she was fighting for her own.

There is no denying that legal representation is an expensive endeavor. But I can’t say enough about how Jennifer Scott and Burnham Law is worth the investment. I have had a difficult and ongoing case since my divorce. Since introduced to Jennifer and moving my case over to her, I accomplished more in four months than I had in two years with my previous firm.

I strongly endorse Jennifer Scott and Burnham Law and refer them continuously. I credit her with rescuing my daughter and she helped change our lives.
