Richard Travis

Richard Travis is committed to providing thorough, effective, and compassionate legal representation to all of his clients.  Over the 23 years of practicing law, Rich has earned a reputation as a tough, aggressive, ethical litigator. He is licensed in the states of Colorado, Massachusetts, and Maine.


Rich started practicing law in a small Boston firm. Then in 1993, he joined the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corp (JAG).  While in the JAG Corp, Rich provided legal assistance to soldiers and their dependents. He also represented Evans Army Community Hospital in cases involving medical malpractice. However, for most of his military career, Rich was a trial counsel and senior trial counsel. Rich tried numerous jury trials involving, rape, assault, child abuse, involuntary manslaughter, and murder. After a successful career in the Army, he joined the 18th Judicial District Attorney’s Office in Arapahoe and Douglas counties. There, Rich tried cases involving driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs and domestic violence.


In 1999, Rich and Wayne Anderson formed Anderson & Travis. For 18 years, Anderson & Travis provided quality legal counsel in the areas of family law, personal injury, criminal defense, and military law. Over the years, he developed an expertise in family law and high conflict divorce. He has represented clients seeking a divorce, legal separation, parenting time, child support, and maintenance. Rich has also successfully defended soldiers in courts-martial and represented clients who were injured either by a collision, professional negligence, or unsafe conditions. Richard’s core belief is that personal injury cases are not just about money; they are about helping clients get better. Since Wayne’s retirement in June 2017, Rich has taken the firm forward as Travis Law Group to continue serving the clients that have come to depend on his expertise and stellar performance as a litigator.


Rich began his college career at the University of New Hampshire where he played football for the Wildcats. In the second semester of his sophomore year, he transferred to Bates College where he played football for the Bobcats and ran track. Rich graduated from Bates College in 1989, with a double major in history and psychology. Afterwards, he traveled to Delaware to attend Widener University School of Law. There, he was selected to the Moot Court Honor Society and the Trial Team. Rich is also a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the Inns of Court, and is the Chairman of the El Paso Country Family Law Bar. He lives in Colorado Springs with his wife and two children. He is an avid skier, mountain bike rider, and GS adventure rider.


On a final note, you are looking for an attorney because you or someone you love needs help. One of Rich’s core principles is that the attorney client relationship is a special relationship built on honesty, trust, and communication. He will communicate with full candor about your case and requests that you do the same with him. Rich is committed to providing personal and meaningful representation to his clients. Rich’s approach to the practice of law and his commitment to his clients are why over 90% of his cases are from referrals.
