Robert B. Wareham

Highlands Ranch, Colorado

Mr. Wareham is a highly regarded litigation attorney whose practice emphasizes family law litigation and criminal defense. In particular, Mr. Wareham handles high conflict divorce, support enforcement and custodial matters. Frequently these cases have a collateral criminal law case involving accusations of domestic violence and/or child abuse.

A skilled litigator and negotiator, Mr. Wareham believes that every case is a candidate for settlement. "Work toward settlement, prepare for trial" is his mantra.

Mr. Wareham had a successful career in high technology sales and sales management with Fortune 50 companies prior to being called to the bar in the early 1990s. During most of this twenty years, Mr. Wareham also served as either a full-time or reserve peace officer in the State of California--holding the state's highest level reserve certification. His background in law enforcement as a police officer and deputy sheriff allow him to work comfortably with prosecutors and police.

As a custodial parent himself, Mr. Wareham understands the special demands of being a single parent, and fights to spare children the trauma associated with divorce. He tells all of his domestic relations clients, "I won't let you hurt your kids!"

Mr. Wareham founded Robert B. Wareham, Esq. P.C. in 1998, and serves as its Managing Director.
