Michael Lucas is Of Counsel and is one of our firm’s seasoned family law attorneys. Michael has been with Marrison Family Law for several years, focusing his practice on solely family law matters such as divorce, post-decree issues, and allocation of parental responsibilities. One of the aspects of family law that he most enjoys is helping our clients begin a new chapter of their lives by working with them to navigate the complexities and emotions they face during a very challenging time.
During his more than 30 years as a licensed attorney, Michael has been a family law attorney; a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney; an in-house government counsel and chief legal officer; and, an administrative hearing officer for the Colorado Department of Revenue presiding over driver’s license matters, especially those concerning DUI allegations.
He is an assertive negotiator and often can be more creative and get a better final result for you in most cases through mediation, or mediation/arbitration, rather than in a courtroom before a judge who does not know either you or your children. His philosophy is straightforward: learn the facts of the case because knowledge is power; always be a strong advocate for the legitimate goals of our clients; and, treat our client and the other side with the courtesy and professionalism to which they are entitled.
Michael obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice and criminology from Metropolitan State University Denver. He obtained his law degree from California Western School of Law in San Diego, California. As part of his legal career, Mike has also attended and taught courses at the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada.
In his free time, Mike enjoys gardening, taking car trips with the convertible top down, and traveling throughout the Caribbean.
