Family Law With A Focus On Each Client's Future

The decision to end a marriage or a nonmarital relationship is a difficult one. Once the decision is made, there are a number of additional decisions that need to be addressed. How will marital assets be divided? Will one party stay in the family home? If there are minor children, should one party be named the custodial parent, and what will the parenting plan look like?

These are important decisions that will set the course for both parties' post-divorce lives. At Gorman & Zuckerman, LLC, we understand how vital our role is helping our clients navigate the divorce process and reset their lives. We take great care to provide highly personalized representation and work to reach agreements in an efficient and cost-effective manner.

Your Goals Become Ours

Trust is the foundation of the attorney-client relationship in any area of law, but it is particularly important in family law matters, where emotions can run high and parties can become entangled in contentious issues. Attorney Tristan Gorman understands this and is committed to establishing that trust from the initial consultation. She will listen carefully to your objectives, help identify priorities, answer all questions you have, and speak candidly with you about what to expect and how to set realistic expectations.

Tristan will develop a legal strategy that works to achieve your goals. Whenever possible, she works to reach agreement without the need to litigate. However, she is an accomplished trial lawyer who is always prepared to advocate in court on your behalf if a fair agreement cannot be reached amicably.

Serving The LGBTQ Community

The dissolution of a same-sex marriage or civil union involves many of the same issues as a traditional divorce, but it may also present some unique issues. For example, custody and parental time-sharing agreements can be more complex in same-sex divorces. Individuals seeking to end a civil union or domestic partnership may be uncertain what legal documents are necessary. And division of assets can be a complex process if high-value items (a house, car or other items) were purchased together outside of marriage.

Our firm is welcoming to the LGBTQ community and committed to helping its members receive high-quality legal representation in a client-friendly environment. Ms. Gorman serves on the Denver Mayor's LGBTQ Commission, the Colorado LGBT Bar Association, and the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar. Gorman & Zuckerman, LLC is a sponsor of the GLBT Community Center of Colorado's Access to Justice Program and joined the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce as amici curiae in support of respondents in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd., et. al. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission, et al. before the United States Supreme Court.
