About Carl O. Graham

Carl O. Graham, Colorado Springs, CO Attorney at Law, practices divorce & family law exclusively! I am the former chair of the El Paso County family law section, and the only family law attorney in El Paso County with an Avvo rating of 10.0 Superb. In short, I provide my clients with top tier representation at a mid-level price. If your case ends up at a contested hearing, my 20+ years of litigation experience includes everything from complex multi-million dollar divorces with multiple experts to child support modifications, and every criminal case imaginable from simple drug use up to rape and first degree murder. The key to winning many cases is to settle them without having to enter a courtroom, and my clients have been happy with negotiated resolutions in close to 1000 cases during my career. Some Colorado Springs lawyers may claim to know all types of law - I don't. If you have a CO divorce or family law situation, instead of trying to be a "jack-of-all trades", I devote 100% of my practice to family law. Colorado divorce & family law is all I do. Period. Visit our web site for my full resume, but here’s a quick summary: I was an Army JAG attorney for 8 years, assisting clients in both military family law matters, as well as prosecuting and defending. I’ve been in private practice for over 14 years. I’ve written articles and regularly teach my fellow practitioners throughout the state on complex family law topics. Each month, family law attorneys from all over the state call me with questions, and periodically I also field questions from judges! It doesn’t mean I’ve seen it all, but I have been there and seen most of it.
