Tia cares deeply about getting the best and most sustainable outcomes for her clients and their children. As a successful construction defect litigator, Tia realized her passion was righting the wrongs suffered by her clients when their homes were literally falling apart.
She brings the same dedication to helping clients whose homes are falling apart in a different way. She helps families navigate the perils of family law litigation through seasoned advocacy, artful negotiation, and creative problem-solving.
During law school, in the DU law clinic, Tia represented the most vulnerable population of low income homeowners for civil predatory lending claims. After that, she was hooked on righting the wrongs of those whose voice could not always be heard.
Out of law school, she represented class action litigants in multi-district litigation for medical negligence. She represented automobile accident victims and dabbled in some light criminal defense before joining a well-respected construction defect litigation firm.
For nearly a decade, Tia was trial counsel for commercial and residential owners in large-scale, high-stake construction defect cases in Colorado and later, in Texas. During that time, Tia developed a talent for pragmatic case evaluation and articulating the true financial and emotional depth of her client’s complicated damages, which often resulted in multi-million dollar resolutions that never required a lawsuit to be filed.
As a seasoned civil litigator, Tia understands the importance of a strategic litigation plan and is an authentic advocate and adversary. Tia is known among her peers for her strong credibility, respect, and collegiality and her collaborative skills often result in outcomes that mitigated the financial and emotional impact that can come with litigation.
In 2017, Tia’s practice shifted to the most personal and impactful type of representation possible- the representation and advocacy of parents, business-owners, stay-at-home spouses, victims of domestic violence, fathers seeking paternity rights. Tia strongly believes in the importance of educating soon-to-be divorced parents on the importance of properly shielding their children from the divorce.
Tia’s practice now focuses solely on resolving conflicts that are inherent in the dissolution of marriages and parental relationships.
Tia’s goal is to keep her client and the other parties out of litigation through authentic, real-world solutions to complicated problems.
Tia’s experience and problem-solving skills along with her second nature advocacy have brought true resolution to families who needed realistic solutions for the emotionally and financially traumatizing reality that is divorce.
Tia has authored articles focusing on mental health in relationships and the importance of protecting children from being exposed to most of the details of their parent’s conflict.
Tia’s free time is usually spent with her husband and three sons, cooking, gardening, and meditating.
