Self Assessment & Service Guide

There are a lot of family lawyers in Colorado and we are so thankful that you’re considering Bluebird Law for your case. Before deciding whether any lawyer is right for you, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What is my legal issue?
  2. How much time am I willing to dedicate to my legal issue?
  3. How much money am I willing and able to spend to resolve my legal issue?
  4. Am I comfortable navigating the Internet and able to use basic computer functions?

If you don’t know what your legal issue is, not to worry. We suggest starting with a case analysis to help you identify the next steps you need to take, the facts that are important to your case and information you need, and the law that will apply to your case.

If you (1) want to manage the cost of your case for your budget, (2) are willing to dedicate at least a few hours per week to your case, (3) and are comfortable navigating the Internet and basic computer functions, Bluebird Law’s custom legal services are likely a great fit for you. Scroll down for a menu of services to get started resolving your legal issues for your family, on your budget.
