Veteran Military Divorce Attorneys
Does your military divorce lawyer truly understand military divorce issues? Has the attorney hiked a mile in your boots? We know the military, and we especially know Fort Carson. The veterans and military spouses at the Colorado Springs law firm of Black & Graham have firsthand experience of the unique military way of life. We can tell an E-7 from an O-6. We know the differences between SBP, BAH and HFP. We can calculate military retirement divisions, and know the consequences of VA disability or PDRL/TDRL on a Colorado divorce.
Carl Graham, our managing family law partner, spent over 8 years as a JAG attorney, where he helped servicemembers and family members with family law and other issues, spent time as both a prosecutor and defense counsel, and ended his career as the Senior Trial Counsel at Fort Carson. He has two NTC rotations and two overseas deployments under his belt.
Oliver Johnson, a family law associate, is a retired Army JAG colonel with over 30 years of Army legal experience on both active duty and in the reserves.
Tracy Kellett, our office manager and senior paralegal, is not only a veteran herself, but she’s also a military spouse with a husband in Special Forces at Fort Carson. Our administrative assistant, Kayci Parish, is a military spouse.
Army Divorce Expertise
Black & Graham’s clientele includes general officers, and officers, NCOs and enlisted of all ranks. Many of our clients are soldiers referred by commanders and first sergeants at Fort Carson, and others are soldiers or family members referred by the Fort Carson Legal Assistance Office. We get most of our Army clients from word of mouth and referrals, not advertising.
Make sure your attorney knows military divorce issues. Some self-proclaimed military divorce lawyers around Fort Carson know surprisingly little about the military. But being a good family law attorney does not mean having the specialized knowledge necessary to be a good military divorce lawyer. Test your prospective military divorce attorneys’ knowledge by asking a few basic questions during your initial consultation.
