Todd Burnham

Managing Partner

If you’re looking for the top divorce lawyer in Colorado, you’ve come to the right place. Routinely receiving glowing testimonials from clients and colleagues, Todd Burnham has a long-standing reputation as a tenacious client advocate. He is a strategist who will analyze your case’s strengths and weaknesses, develop a precise game plan, and drive your case toward a successful resolution.

Todd’s successful approach and winning track record has resulted in Burnham Law earning a reputation as a firm that “Sets the Tone.”

Most attorneys tend to either litigate or mediate – very few are proficient at both. Excellent advocacy requires an attorney who can see the “big picture,” who isn’t afraid of a courtroom, and who always looks for the collaborative resolution. That is the embodiment of Todd’s approach, as well as the approach taken by every Burnham Law attorney who Todd has personally trained.

Todd’s approach and commitment to excellence has been recognized by his 10.0 Avvo rating, multiple SuperLawyers selections, the “Top 1%” selection by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel, and Colorado’s “Top 10” by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys. Todd also serves on the Board for the Boulder Interdisciplinary Committee, a non-profit organization comprised of attorneys, mental health professionals, mediators and community service organizations. These honors and distinctions affirm Todd as one of the top-rated divorce lawyers in Colorado.

As a New York-trained trial attorney and Managing Partner of Burnham Law, Todd balances persistence, insight, knowledge and compassion in order to provide the firm’s clients with exceptional representation. Todd’s service-focused representation and vision has resulted in Burnham Law’s rapid growth into multiple Colorado locations while attracting the best, most talented and experienced litigators, to join the firm.

His approach to every case involves strategic, focused and insightful planning. This regularly results in successful outcomes when other attorneys simply said “it couldn’t be done.” Involved in nearly every case Burnham Law takes on, Todd primarily handles the firm’s high-asset and/or high-conflict cases.

Raised by a single mother who worked full time as a dedicated, committed and talented social worker, Todd understands these cases. His strategic planning and goal-oriented approach is the standard at Burnham Law. As a Hobart College and Albany Law School graduate (in 1995 and 2000, respectively), Todd is admitted to practice law in both Colorado and New York state courts, in addition to the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York. Todd was a member of two National Champion Hobart College Lacrosse teams and was twice named an NCAA All-American lacrosse player.

In such an emotionally-charged area of law, balance and focus are needed to walk to the line between a competitive spirit and compassion for the issues affecting families’ everyday lives. As a top divorce lawyer in Denver, Todd continues to hone this balance by coaching his daughters’ seasonal sports teams and by spending quality time with his family.
