Kenneth A. Matthews, JD, Partner:
Mr. Matthews has been practicing law for over 26 years. After graduating from the University of Okalahoma School of Law, Mr. Matthews began his practice in Okalahoma, but soon moved to Colorado where he first developed his practice in corporate, oil and gas and product liability litigation. During this period he honed his negotiation and trial skills and subsequently won a number of key cases including the precedent setting case, Niemet v. General Electric, 866 P.2d 1361, Colorado Court of Appeals and Supreme Court. The Niemet case was the first plaintiff favorable verdict upheld by the Supreme Court following Colorado¿s tort reform laws.
Following Mr. Matthews¿ own divorce in 1993, he decided to pursue the practice of family law. From this personal experience, he came to intimately understand how the process of a family lawsuit had such a profound effect on the lives of individuals and their children. After a few years of pursuing corporate interests he settled on a practice that became exclusively oriented towards family law. In order to ensure that he possessed the necessary skills to effectively serve his family law clients, Mr. Matthews completed a significant number of college credit hours in counseling and mediation. Mr. Matthews is able to bring his extensive negotiation and litigation experience as well as his commitment to making a difference in clients¿ lives to the practice. Mr. Matthews is committed to maintaining a firm designed to fulfill the full spectrum of needs for the family law client.
Sergei Thomas, JD, Associate:
Sergei Thomas has been practicing law in Colorado for over 16 years. Following his graduation from Washburn University School of Law, Mr. Thomas began his practice with the Jefferson County District Attorney¿s office. While practicing as a Deputy District Attorney, Mr. Thomas gained significant trial experience in all aspects of Criminal Law from DUI¿s to Homicides.
Although the nature of cases handled by the District Attorney¿s office vary greatly, Mr. Thomas chose to focus on juvenile cases and other issues pertaining to children. He also volunteered on several non-profit executive boards and devoted much of his time as a volunteer to youth issues and delinquency prevention.
Given his interest and commitment to children¿s issues, it has been a natural transition for Mr. Thomas to move his practice into the area of family law. His significant trial experience and the knowledge he gained working with children and issues that impact them has provided a strong foundation for Mr. Thomas¿s work as a Family Law Attorney.
