Jennifer Lewis has been licensed to practice law since 1988, and has practiced law in both state and federal courts in Missouri, Kansas, and Colorado. Ms. Lewis started working as a law clerk for John Ivan, a general practitioner, in 1987. While attending the University of Missouri, Ms. Lewis was on the dean’s list, and also worked as a research assistant for Professor Barbara Gleasner, and served as a Westlaw student research assistant, in addition to working for Mr. Ivan. After her graduation from the University of Missouri in 1988, Ms. Lewis continued practicing law in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area for over twenty years. After experiencing a divorce herself, Ms. Lewis decided that a change in scenery was in order and relocated to Colorado in 2007.

Ms. Lewis has acquired a wealth of experience representing diverse clients in the areas of family law, criminal law, estate planning and probate proceedings, personal injury and medical malpractice claims, zoning and land use planning, and general civil litigation. While her practice is now focused on family law, Ms. Lewis has discovered that her exposure to a broad range of legal issues is very helpful in advising family law clients.

Ms. Lewis is a proficient negotiator comfortable with alternative dispute resolution procedures, including mediation and settlement conferences. Ms. Lewis has discovered that a skilled attorney working with an experienced mediator can resolve many cases that seemed destined for a contested hearing.

Ms. Lewis is also a skilled legal writer, having authored many state court motions and briefs, as well as appellate briefs filed in the Court of Appeals for Kansas, Missouri and Colorado. Ms. Lewis has had three of her appellate briefs result in published appellate court decisions. Ms. Lewis’ broad experience is very useful in addressing the myriad of issues found in a family law practice.

Ms. Lewis is a member of the family law section of the Colorado Bar Association and also a member of the Missouri Bar Association. She is admitted to practice before the United States District Court for the Districts of Colorado and Kansas. In her spare time, Ms. Lewis enjoys playing tennis, skiing, hiking, reading, professional sporting events, and spending time with friends, family, and her two dogs.

“I utilize a practical, patient, and compassionate approach in order to help my clients cope with the challenges of a divorce, child custody case, or other family law matter. I identify a client’s goals early in the process and work with that client to best achieve those goals. Many family law disputes can be resolved through mediation and negotiation with the other party. Negotiated resolutions of a disputed matter are frequently more cost effective and less stressful to the parties. However, if a negotiated settlement is not possible, then I am very comfortable taking the case to Court.”
