Eagle County Divorce

Welcome to Lewis & Matthews (formally Matthews & Matthews), a family law firm dedicated to helping you move forward in the event of a divorce, child custody, or other family law matter. Our firm is headed up by our partner, Jennifer L. Lewis, who has been practicing law for over 28 years, and has extensive experience handling family law matters in Colorado.

SPEAK WITH AN EXPERIENCED ATTORNEY RIGHT AWAY

Jennifer Lewis made the decision to relocate to Colorado after going through a difficult divorce case, and has personal knowledge of how agonizing the process can be.  A divorce can be emotionally exhausting, painful and expensive. At Lewis & Matthews, our concern is not only to assist you in ending your unhappy marriage, but also to help you prepare for your future, and the next chapter in your life.

 

A 360-DEGREE VIEW OF YOUR CASE

The team at Lewis & Matthews strives to formulate a legal strategy tailored to your unique situation.  Jennifer’s background includes many years spent working for a solo practitioner in the Kansas City metropolitan area, where she represented clients in criminal law, personal injury, probate, estate planning, business, and family law matters.  Jennifer’s diverse legal background enables her to offer clients practical, real world, solutions for their case.

The team at Lewis & Matthews works with well-respected experts, such as child and family investigators, parental responsibility evaluators, therapists, appraisers, and certified financial planners in order to achieve the best result for you.

 

COLLABORATIVE CASE MANAGEMENT AND PROMPT CLIENT SERVICE

The Lewis & Matthews team have regular case management meetings to discuss each active case in detail so that every member of our practice understands your case, and is able to assist you better.  We endeavor to copy you on emails to the Court, and to the other party, and to promptly return your telephone calls and email messages so that you can stay informed about developments in your case.

 

WE TRY TO REACH A MEDIATED RESOLUTION OF YOUR DISPUTE

Based upon our experience at Lewis & Matthews, we know that parties are more likely to follow an agreement that they worked out with their former spouse, rather than a Court Order which has been forced upon them. This is especially important when children are involved, as a high conflict case can have a negative impact on the parties’ ability to communicate and co-parent together.  Furthermore, preparing for and attending a contested hearing can be expensive.  Eagle County usually requires both parties to attend mediation prior to a final hearing.  We strive to establish a common resolution with the other party to avoid unnecessary and ugly battles.

However, in the event that your best interests are compromised, you can rely on our experienced team to vigorously defend your interests in Court.

You can trust your family law and estate planning matters to Lewis & Matthews, P.C.  Take a tour of our site for more of our services.  Set up your consultation today.
