We do things differently.
We're looking for an attorney that wants to help us in our mission to completely change the way Family Law is practiced. We believe that Family Law firms should be focused not on the conflict, but on helping our clients transition into a life more fully lived. "We empower our clients to make the best possible decisions for themselves and their family." Those are the words we live by. We invest in getting to know our clients, and help them to know themselves, and what they want as a result of the situation that brought them to us.
In order to do this, we need lawyers that are aligned with this mission, good with clients, and unafraid to stand up for our clients before any tribunal. While we do not believe that court is the best place to resolve the disputes in which our clients may be engaged, we do believe that the best way to bring the decision back to our clients is to be unafraid to advocate for them in the best way possible.
There is a better way to practice Family Law.
That is the premise of the New Leaf Family. If you agree, you may want to read on! If not ... it is perfectly OK to move on.
As I wrote, the firm’s mission is to empower clients to make the best decisions they can for themselves and their families in times of family conflict or transition, and then to assist them in the transition in a positive manner. We emphasize growth over conflict. We help clients move toward a new life, not just flee the one they’re in.
We practice family law, but this is not a typical family law firm. The work you do will directly contribute to work that helps clients in very real ways.
The founders of New Leaf believe that:
And we are hiring.
We are looking for family law attorneys, with experience, who would like to work with a team that believes as we do, and who want to reduce the attorney-induced drama needless escalation of the conflict, and focus instead on building a future with and for clients.
The system as practiced in many firms seems designed to wear down the clients, and the attorneys. There is a better way of doing things, so that the balance, most days, have you feeling awesome about how much you are positively affecting people’s lives. We can't eliminate the tough days ... we're not magicians ... but we are on a mission, and that makes it a lot more fun!
To be a good fit for this role, you should be someone who is looking for an opportunity to focus on helping people navigate the biggest decisions they will face in their lives: changes in their family. Whether divorce, separation, custody, parenting time, visitation, or other family changes, disputes, or crises, you want to help them reach the best outcome that is consistent with their values.
We need you to be proficient in Colorado family Law practice and procedure. At the same time, we want you to not be "set in your ways," or wedded to “the way things have always been done.” You should be an optimist, and a realist, at the same time.
We need you to be creative and able to think outside the box, while also adhering to the established parameters of law and court procedure.
Of course, you must have the skills necessary to advocate for clients before a mediator or a court, and not be afraid to do so. You also know that litigation is not always the path to the best outcome. You are not motivated by the thrill of the other side losing but are dedicated to achieving an optimal outcome for our clients, consistent with their values – which you, along with our team, may help them discover.
You understand that this process is about more than writing legal documents. You are eager to marshall the resources of our team that can go beyond the “bare minimum” and provides all the help the clients may need. You are excited about being part of a firm that will be there for them, even outside the strictly legal aspects of these major life changes --whether it be help finding a new home, a car, the right insurance, a babysitter, or an IT guy...
You are committed, above all, and in everything we do, to an excellent experience for clients.
If you're still reading this, and believe this might be a role for you, let me tell you about us. New Leaf Family has started a family law practice serving the greater Denver area. We are combining our founders' talents of running successful law firms, with the experience of having built law firms, including a very successful family law practice, and wanting to do it again (and again.)
We are able to serve clients more fully, and more efficiently, bringing family law services to people who have been scared away by the high, and unpredictable costs of family law firms led by trial lawyers who can be more interested in winning, than in achieving a great outcome for their clients.
When you apply, please briefly let me know why this role, in particular, gets you excited... This is key. Don't skip it! (you will be prompted separately to answer this question)
We look forward to hearing from you!
$75,000 - $95,000 yearly + incentives+ health insurance upon eligibility

We are all focused on empowering clients to navigate change and conflict in their family lives. You will help clients to develop and articulate a vision of the future they are working to achieve and prepare a strategy that helps them to achieve it. We believe that we should not impose what we see as "the solution" onto clients' lives.
In your role as an experienced attorney will require you to:
You will do your part to bring effective conflict resolution resources to more people, by being effective in what you do with New Leaf Family, and letting our light shine!
First and foremost, you have a passion for empowering clients through their current family conflict, toward a future that they may not (yet) clearly see. Next, you are excited about the prospect of doing this … differently! The remainder of qualifications doesn't matter if you don't have this! (But they are still essential if you do.) You are the right person if you are:
