Satisfied Client Stories
My experience with your firm was exceptional and I would highly recommend Rich to anyone in need of the best representation. I would love nothing more than to be able to share the positive experience I had in my own personal situation.
I couldn’t ask for a better, more well-rounded, suitable, professional, not just attorney, but respectable human in handling family law matters. I’ve used Rich Travis and his firm ongoing since 2003. He’s always been my go-to-expert in manners related to handling difficult manners with delusional exes who seem to continue their egregious tirades believing their somehow right within their ill-begotten parenting ideologies and deranged minds of being some victim using the slighted system against fathers. Colorado family law is skewed based on 35+ years of poor legislation and (Child Enforcements misguidance and misinterpretation of law) attempting to correct past bad fathers behaviors; they certainly have made father’s pay a terrible price for others past behaviors. It’s not based on equality nor does the state believe in father’s having rights as its Rich’s attempts to correct this ongoing problem. He has been there for me in just about all the way (when I’ve retained him) and when I didn’t use his expertise, twice due to my own impatience or lack of willingness to sum up the retainer, I soon regretted it by retaining far inferior attorneys. Yes, retaining Rich doesn’t offer his expertise at a light expense, but you get what you “retain” for and not at anytime did he stray me wrong and was well behind the wheel when representing me. He fights for you and your parental rights! Regardless of gender. He holds much honor and respect not just for his military service, but how he uses those Army values with his practice bestowed within his guidance, for direction and leadership.
I cannot thank Rich Travis and his staff enough for helping me through a difficult time. They made the process simple and produced the results I was looking for. Great firm!
The Travis Law Group is excellent. Mr. Travis and Donna handled my divorce case with integrity, competently, and presented the truth. The court and judge agreed with our position and my case was settled to my satisfaction. The Travis Law Group is to be commended for their due diligence and expertise. I have faith in our legal system based on their superior work and expertise. Travis Law has my deepest respect and appreciation for a job well done. Thank you.
Richard Travis and his staff did a great job, and I would recommend them! He explained all the steps and options and was very approachable, as was his staff.
Travis Law Group has represented me more than once. Mr. Rich Travis is very professional, knowledgeable, and meticulous in reviewing his cases. Dauna Overly is the greatest paralegal. His staff is fantastic and are very personable and adaptive. I feel confident when I hire Travis Law Group that they will represent and fight for my rights. I wouldn't retain any attorney but Travis Law Group for my legal needs.
Richard Travis and his staff did a great job throughout the process, and I would recommend them!
One of my best decisions, choosing this law firm to represent myself and my family. The entire staff did an excellent job in assisting with all of our legal needs. Highly professional, compassionate, and dedicated to achieving our goal. Mr. Travis went above and beyond what I had anticipated/asked of him to do. Anyone in the Colorado Springs area should search no more if wondering/questioning whom to put such serious matters in the hands. Travis Law Group is where I would begin and end; this coming from a previous client in need. All of my cases settled and won. Thank you TLG.
Mr. Travis and his paralegal Dauna were wonderful in representing me in my divorce and child custody case. They were both very knowledgeable about laws, and detail oriented in preparing my case. I was extremely impressed with their explanations of all of my questions. Mr. Travis spent time talking with me about a situation that could have potentially gone negative on me with my kids, and helped me form a positive plan to present in my hearing. The outcome for me and my children could not have gone better. Their firm was also cost cautious. I will definitely hire Travis Law if I ever need legal representation in the future.
Travis Law Group was awesome!!! They represented me in my contempt case against my Ex-wife and I was very, very happy with the end result. They even helped me get a portion of my lawyer fees back ($3,000.00 to be exact) due to it being my Exes fault that I had to be in court again. Dauna Overly was excellent to work with. She was very responsive and made sure I was kept up to date on everything that was going on with the case with phone calls and almost daily emails and if I had any questions it was answered within a very short period of time, usually within an hour and less than 2. Megan Hersh was also very helpful and super responsive when it came to billing. Any question/s I did not understand about my bill was explained to me in detail and the reply to any such question was swift. The greatest part was when I ran out of cash they allowed me to pay off what I owed by working with me and establishing a payment plan. I will definitely recommend Travis Law Group as I am sure they will take care of other as they did me!! Thanks TLG!!!!!!
I was referred to Rich Travis almost 15 years ago from a friend experiencing divorce complications. Best decision to change law firms because I inherited an exceptional law family! Rich, Dauna, Mitch, Megan along with their support staff has gone above and beyond. They have impressed me with their personal attention to each case with impeccable responsive to questions and concerns. You actually feel like a member of the team working your case! Advice, court preparation and court presentation is extraordinary. A legal team that approaches law and clientele with honesty and integrity is a rare gem. Rich has my full trust and faith!!
Rich Travis is an incredible attorney. He and his staff are incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and thorough. I would recommend him without hesitation. Thank you Rich.
World class lawyer and team.
Mr. Rich Travis is one of the best attorney's that I have dealt with in my 27 year professional career. He is extremely competent in every situation I have had the privilege in working with him on. He is conscientious of my time and he works in the best interest of his client's. In addition, his staff, particularly Ms. Megan Hersh, was also a pleasure. She is attentive, thorough and prompt in her work on my particular case. I highly recommend that anyone that needs one of the best attorney's for a situation, that you would contact the Travis Law Group. You will not be disappointed.
If you need good help this is the place to go! Very caring and understanding people that work here!! If you need help see them!
Mr Travis, Dauna & his team were exceptional! From the very beginning of my case they made me feel at ease, listened thoroughly and explained in detail to what possible avenues I had as options. I can honestly say I believe that the outcome of my legal peace of mind was directly related to that fact that I hired the right lawyer. In the court room, it was amazing to see how truly prepared he was. He knew my case inside and out.
I chose Rich Travis' Law Firm to represent me in a parenting-time case. Rich and his colleague Mitch were incredibly thorough, precise, and gave my case the specific attention that it required. Additionally, their paralegal Marissa Sterrett is incredibly sharp, organized, efficient, and has a keen eye for detail. Rich's staff gained my trust early in the process and took the very best care of my case to ensure a victory in the courtroom. My only mistake was not hiring Rich Travis' office at the very beginning of my divorce process, I would have had much better results early on in my case.
Richard Travis, his firm and the rest of his team are all consummate professionals, from the attorneys and paralegals to their receptionist. I hired Richard Travis at the nascent stages of my highly contested custody battle. My case lasted a grueling 8 years. But during my family’s dire need of a go-to legal team, and when I (we) needed this requirement the most, I was very assured and at ease to have Rich and the rest of his A-team at my side. I was able to sleep soundly at night knowing that Rich was there at my side in the courtroom.
Rich has taken care of two problems for us. An attempt to change visitation rights by our great-grandson's grandparent and now assisting with a granddaughter's divorce situation. In both cases, he kept us in the loop.
Mr. Travis is excellent with law facts, communication, completing legal matters in an expedient manner. He listens, is very intelligent, and is in tune with your needs. I have recommended him to many persons and will continue to do business with him in the future.
1. Can I handle my Colorado Springs Colorado divorce without an attorney?
Yes, however, we believe it is unwise to represent yourself. Most people are not as informed about the law in Colorado Springs, their options, or how the judicial system, as a trained Colorado Springs family lawyer is. Colorado Springs CO Family law attorneys deal with these issues on a daily basis, and they are familiar with the likely outcomes of what you are dealing with. If you are facing one of the many domestic relations issues, you should contact a Colorado Springs family law attorney so that you can be more informed of your options.
2. How do I get child support from someone who is not paying in Colorado Springs?
Child support is ordered by the Court. As such, a failure to pay is a violation of a Court Order and subjects the person failing to pay to the contempt powers of the Court. That can include retroactive payments, legal services fees, fines, and even jail time. If someone owes you child support and is not current on their payments, on behalf of your child(ren), you should speak to a Colorado family law attorney immediately.
