Johnson Márquez is a national leader in the field of family law, using our team of expert lawyers and advanced technology to protect our clients’ interests through extensive training in cutting edge, cost-savings techniques. We develop our new lawyers with a year-long mentor program, designed to help them become the best in their field. Our mentor program includes case strategy, courtroom techniques, ethics, writing skills and balance activities and has created a highly skilled team of professionals across the country.

Our commitment to developing the skills and techniques of all our lawyers and staff doesn’t end with our mentor program. Even after successful completion of the year long program we continue to provide our team with the best training and support available. Our entire team of lawyers actively participate in annual training programs in courtroom skills, ethics, and professionalism and are encouraged to attend conventions of family law lawyers across the country as presenters and attendees.

At Johnson Márquez, we are pioneering the use of advanced technology in the courtroom. Not only does the use of technology give our lawyers a distinct advantage, but also reduces the costs a client would otherwise incur.

Even with several offices across the country, we don’t have a single copier or local server, and our file rooms are generally smaller than a walk-in closet. We use only 21% of the paper an average firm does, we have no copiers to supply, maintain, or house and our servers are located off-site in highly secure facilities. These cost savings result in better service for lower fees.

We hire the best, train them to be better and support them with advanced technology so they are the best prepared lawyers in the room.

The Denver office is our flagship location and was founded in 2001 by M. David Johnson. Presently our largest office, the attorneys at our Denver office provide industry-leading family law services to clients throughout the metro area, as well as the rest of Colorado, including Aspen, Telluride, Boulder and Steamboat.

Our Denver lawyers actively participate in local bar associations as contributors, decision makers and practice leaders. We focus extensive development on:

  • Professional Development
  • Trial Practice
  • Ethics
  • Professionalism
  • Leadership training
  • Team management

This team of highly skilled litigators focuses on our clients and getting them the best results we can in a professional, cost-effective manner.

The Johnson Márquez Colorado Springs office was opened in the fall of 2011 and has focused on serving the needs of families in and around El Paso county, Colorado.

Our lawyers in this office participate in many of the same training sessions and development programs as the attorneys in our Denver office, but also focus on the skills necessary to represent military families. As with our Denver lawyer, our family law attorneys in Colorado Springs are trained in:

  • Professional Development
  • Trial Practice
  • Ethics
  • Professionalism
  • Leadership training
  • Team management

We continue to grow and expand our Colorado Springs legal team with talented professionals, dedicated to giving our clients a chance to start over.

Opening in the summer of 2014, Johnson Márquez is very excited to bring it’s newest office online in San Francisco, California. We intend on bringing the same high level of commitment to client needs and professional, strategic solutions we bring to our clients in our other locations.
