We Believe Fathers Are Important to their Children and Must be Active and Involved in their Upbringing

Fathers are important.  Fathers are parents and their children need them in their lives.  Not just for financial support — Fathers are not just a paycheck.  Children need their fathers for emotional support, guidance, education, physical care-taking, role modeling and, sometimes, just to be there and care about them.  When parents separate, fathers frequently must fight to remain a part of their children’s lives — a significant and meaningful part.  Martin Law Firm can help.

The founder of Martin Law Firm, Brett W. Martin, Esq., is licensed to practice law in New York and Colorado and is the sole shareholder and managing attorney of Martin Law Firm.  Brett is an advocate of fathers wanting to be actively involved with the parenting of their children and is a Father’s Rights Attorney.  He is a grandfather and has four children of his own.   Brett has personally experienced the heartbreak of divorce and family breakup and formed the firm in 1996 to provide dedicated, quality and professional representation to fathers involved in custody and visitation or parenting disputes.  Contact Brett for further information and assistance.

This site provides information and guidance to fathers facing or going through divorce, child custody, visitation, paternity, child support and related family law legal proceedings in Colorado.  Martin Law Firm understands that, for many fathers, having to fight for their children is one of the hardest, if not the worst, time in their lives.  Martin Law Firm helps fathers get through this difficult time.
