Lisa M. Dailey
I have lived in Colorado most of my life where I attended high school, college, and law school. Since the 1960's, I watched my father, attorney Gary Dailey, represent generations of families and have continued the tradition.
Contrary to popular belief and current advertisements, divorce is not a battle to be fought and/or won by attorneys. Colorado law requires an equitable division of marital property and parenting plans that are in the best interest of the children. Therefore, in the majority of cases the marital property will be divided such that each spouse will have less than the total of the estate. Our law also supports quality time for children with both parents to the extent possible.
Spouses who "win" their case are those who achieve the following:
- Analyze the right time to file for divorce/legal separation
- Understand the law based on the facts of their situation
- Set realistic goals based on the law
- Establish a workable process
- Enlist the level of representation that he/she needs to achieve these goals
The added "win" of achieving these goals is to minimize the financial and emotional cost of the process.
Based on my experience, including knowledge of the law and our local community, I provide an honest assessment based on the facts of your case. Communication, education, hard work and a dedicated staff are keys to establishing the relationships that allow me to better serve your needs.
In her free time, Lisa especially enjoys hiking the beautiful mountain ranges of Colorado with her dog, Maggie.
