Who We Serve

Getting divorced can often feel difficult and always deeply personal. Because situations vary and emotions fluctuate, there is no one-size fits all approach. Whether highly contentious or purely amicable, separation and rebuilding can feel exhausting. That’s why choosing a divorce lawyer who is equally skilled in the courtroom and at the mediation table can help. Whether you are a fire fighter, police officer, another government employee, a gray divorcing individual, a small business owner or a spouse, we encourage you to preserve as much of your assets and energy as possible, so you can focus on building your new life chapter. At the law office of Erin K. Colgan, P.C., we help you to choose type of divorce that’s right for you and your family.
