Very happy client
Simply put, Gavin made my ex-wife's lawyer look like a guy who got his degree from a mail order catalog! Though he supposedly had been in practice for 30 years, Gavin mopped the floor with him! She countered every demand that my ex and her lawyer made with law that backed my position and she gave me awesome advice on how to respond to their attempts at extortion. In the end, my ex ended up with less than she had before she got greedy.

Gavin vs. the abusive narcissistic ex...
I had been trapped in an abusive marriage for many years and finally got the courage to leave. As one one figure as soon as I did drop the divorce on him all hell broke lose. Desperate, broke, and and in tears I called many lawyers to see if anyone would be willing to help me. I was relieved when Gavin and the Burnham law firm were very sympathetic to my situation and took me and my case on. Initially I was feeling frustrated at the fact they were so calm in the situation when I was so upset at some of the things I felt he got away with, but soon I saw they had a much bigger picture in mind then I could comprehend at the time. Gavin is very calm, collected, and calculated in her decisions and ultimately won in her strategy unlike the many other impulsive lawyers out there. She is not going to deceive you into thinking you can win something which the judge would not ultimately grant in court, as many lawyers will in order to profit off of peoples emotions in such a situation. Thank you Gavin!

Gavin Marie Halligan is excellent in every possible way
Gavin saved me! I was in a very scary place with a little girl and she assisted me in a Permanent Protection Order Hearing. I was terrified of the trial, but with Gavin by my side it was smooth and fearless. She is someone I would trust with my life. The order was issued, and if I ever needed a lawyer again, she would be my gal! Gavin is compassionate and smart. She had everything prepared within very short amount of time. She is organized beyond belief and actually cares about her clients. If you live near Boulder or the surrounding areas, I could not refer you to a better person. He collogue Todd Burnham was just as fantastic! This is a group of people I will forever be thankful for finding and most importantly keeping us safe.

My hero...she saved my relationship with my children.
Gavin and I just finished temporary orders for my divorce. We were up against a very high-priced partner with a big firm downtown. I was astounded by the level of detail and preparation on Gavin's part in preparation for our proceedings. We were only allotted 90 Minutes for the entire proceeding and Gavin's ability to appropriately shift and balance that time strategically was brilliant. Her cross examination of the petitioner was methodical and she was able to get the witness to perjure herself on at least three separate occasions through her skillful approach. At the conclusion of our proceeding, our judge crucified the petitioner and awarded ZERO temporary maintenance! Gavin is a cool customer and an assassin in the courtroom when you need her most. I am deeply indebted to her for such savvy and skillful representation.
