Fred, Lucy and Wendi were very professional and paid close attention to court deadlines and appearances. I was made aware in advance what documents needed to be filed and I was able to look them over before they filed them. I always knew what was going on with my case because they were very communicative about the whole divorce process. I would definitely recommend Dunsing & Deakins to anyone going through a divorce or legal separation.

Facing the court system in America can be a daunting task for anyone, especially those who are innocent of crimes that they have nevertheless been accused of... Mr. Joseph Galera, Esq., is the lawyer recommended by the law office to handle my case, and within a few hours of taking him on as my attorney, I already felt I had made the right choice... Mr. Galera is more than worth the cost of his services. I simply could not recommend anyone use any other defense attorney, if they have to deal with the court systems in the Denver-Aurora metro.

Our case was one of the worst for the record books... They treated my family as their own and won massively for us in court! They were fair and compassionate with my son's best interest in mind. Over the course of our case we had several (top, so they said) lawyers but only Dunsing & Deakins brought us the WIN! They successfuly represented us in appeals court and worked great with the UCCJEA laws for over the state jouristriction. You don't need to look anywhere else because this firm will work intelligently and tiredlessly for you and your family! They are more then just lawyers, they became advocates and friends. A+++

Lucy, Wendi, and Fred were all amazing throughout my case. Lucy's knowledge and expertise, as well as the law firm's professional connections with mediators and child family investigators, led to a custody resolution that truly represents the best interest of my son. Many thanks!
