Theresa’s family law mediation practice focuses on helping parties efficiently resolve their issues in a cost-effective and dignified way while still preserving key relationships within families. Theresa is a certified mediator with extensive background in domestic relations litigation and she is dedicated to providing high quality, professional mediation services to help families find long-term solutions while avoiding lengthy court disputes. Mediation sessions may be conducted at our office or at any other location. Evening mediation appointments are also available.
In her domestic relations practice, Theresa works to resolve cases amicably for the long-term financial and emotional benefit of her clients. However, Theresa will not hesitate to litigate whenever necessary to protect the rights of her clients. In determining parental responsibilities, including parenting time (visitation) and decision making (custody), Theresa focuses on what is in the best interests of the children. With regard to domestic support issues, Theresa takes a nuanced approach, considering tax issues as well as other factors impacting awards of maintenance (alimony) and child support. Finally, Theresa has a thorough understanding of the financial impact of divorce and can help her clients negotiate the best possible division of assets so they can move on to the next stage in their lives.
Theresa also represents Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 debtors in Federal Bankruptcy Court. By focusing on the evaluation and preparation of each client’s petition, Theresa ensures that the review process is smooth and her clients obtain the best results possible. Theresa is also familiar with all stages of an individual or a family debt crisis and can provide advice regarding collection activity, foreclosure or repossession, qualifying for a bankruptcy (passing the Means Test), and finding proper credit recovery methods after a bankruptcy has been filed.
Theresa is a Colorado native. She attended George Washington High School, graduated from Vassar College in 2002, and received her J.D. from the University of Colorado School of Law in 2005. She joined The Law Firm of Dennis A. Lacerte shortly thereafter. Theresa loves spending time with her husband introducing their three young children to all the mountain adventures Colorado has to offer.
