Don’t try to go it alone.

We’re here to help you secure the two most important things in your life: your family and your finances. We do not take this role lightly, and work strategically and compassionately to help you achieve your goals.

Our Areas of Legal Expertise and Representation Include:


Ending a marriage is never easy. We provide aggressive advocacy to help you gain the stability and certainty you will need to move forward with your life. We will negotiate on your behalf, fight for all you are entitled to, take your case to trial if needed, and see that your agreements are binding.

Parenting Time / Child Custody

Our attorneys are passionate about protecting and fighting for parental rights and we will discuss the factors that affect the best interest of your children. We will explain your rights and responsibilities so that you can protect your children and play the most appropriate and loving role in their lives.

Child Support

In addition to the income of the parents, many additional factors can be taken into consideration to determine financial support, so it is very important to seek the advice of a child support lawyer. As your Denver family lawyer, we will work to see that child support payments are structured to be appropriate and fair.


Our attorneys are well-aware this is an important and life-changing step for not only the child, but for each of the new parents. Our firm makes sure you have a clear and detailed understanding of your child’s, as well as your own, current and future rights, and that you have met every legal requirement.

Civil Protection Orders

We will help with your protection order case, whether it is acting on your behalf to bring one, or acting on your behalf to defend against one. We offer compassionate, confidential counsel and are ready to hear the unique aspects of your case so that we can concentrate on getting the outcome you deserve.

Family Law Appeals

Our firm provides legal services to clients who want to bring, or need to defend against, an appeal in domestic relations cases. Our attorneys may be able to appeal your case for you if a judge has misapplied the law, committed an error, or abused his or her discretion when reviewing the facts of the case.


We provide mediation in a neutral manner with the goal of assisting parties in reaching agreements. Our firm’s highly skilled experts will work with you to determine and advise if this is a suitable method for your case. It is important for both parties to enter mediation with openness to reach a resolution.

Unbundled Legal Services

The attorneys at our firm offers representation on a limited scope basis, which is sometimes referred to as “unbundled legal services.” This means that the attorney will represent you for a discrete task related to your case, rather than to represent you generally in your matter.

Estate Planning

A well thought-out plan can bring you great peace of mind and have a long lasting impact on your family’s future. You have worked hard for your net worth and want to see it protected. We provide legal guidance and professional planning services to ensure that your financial goals are reached.

Wills and Trusts

The way the court will settle your estate may not reflect what you would have wanted for your loved ones and survivors. We help you prepare the proper fiduciary structures and documentation to see that your wishes are carried out and your assets are distributed as you had planned.

"I highly recommend the Hulse Law Firm. Through the entire process of a difficult divorce, Lauren Hulse consistently demonstrated her professionalism and expertise as a highly competent attorney. These abilities of Lauren's were always present and appreciated, whether it be in a one-to-one conversation with me or with interactions with the Judge, the Respondent, Opposing Counsel, the forensic accountant (expert witness), etc. Divorce is never easy, but it can be effective when you have a great team at your side that has knowledge, compassion, and strength.

"It is honestly a pleasure to write a review for the Hulse Law firm. I was having issues with a child custody matter involving my young child. My scenario was treated with integrity, follow through, care and with my finances treated with respect. I highly suggest utilizing their initial consultation. Mr Hutton is an awesome attorney who sincerely cares and will not waste your time with run around. I think highly of this law firm, Mr Hutton and am reminded of them everytime I enjoy my parenting time with my son. In summary......Hulse Law firm is a powerful dose of staying awesome and I thank them all for that. Written by a regular guy who is a Dad and grateful to this law firm for their help."
D. Mert
"I worked with Ryan for a year and a half on a very contentious divorce, and he was fantastic. He was realistic about expectations, helped me understand why we did the things we did, and ran circles around the opposition when we were in court. The gap in professionalism was so extreme that I actually felt embarrassed for my ex-wife's lawyer. Ryan's book knowledge is thorough - he knows little nuances which will help you achieve your goals along the way, and his demeanor puts everyone at ease and makes a very stressful and difficult time a little less stressful. I can honestly say that he was the best lawyer possible for me and my needs, and I'll be forever grateful of his impact on one of the most difficult times in my life."
V. Castillo
"Katherine Fontenot is an amazing attorney. She was not only knowledgeable, but also incredibly compassionate. Maneuvering through the divorce process was the hardest thing I ever did and I could not have done it without her expertise and support."
K. Berges
"My only regret is not hiring Lauren sooner. My divorce was a long process full of conflict and false accusations from the opposition. Lauren strategically navigated this complex case and tailor made our strategy based on my goals and what she thought was possible from her experience. She empathized with me, counseled me, and supported me through this process. She was very conscious that I was on a budget and made every dollar count. Overall my case was very successful, and the quality and value I received from Lauren and her staff at the Hulse Law Firm are unmatched by previous law firms I have hired. I will be returning to Lauren Hulse for all of my legal needs. There is no reason to look anywhere else!"
