Family Law

My experience with Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno has been great all around in every category. They had an amazing ability to capture every detail when it came to my family civil case. Responsiveness is truly an appreciated attribute when dealing with contentious matters that can be distractions to your everyday job. Responsiveness has paid off in more ways than my direct correspondence with this firm. They stay on top of the opposing counsel better than anyone else I have seen, getting results that are swift and professional. I have used this firm for over 4 years now due to the results that we have seen. During even one of the most highly contentious moments when having to appear in front of a judge, she guided me through the process and prepared me for cross examination. This firm remembered the most minute details to the case that were brought up on the fly during court. We walked away from this particular situation with astonishing results due to a high level of competence in the court room. I truly recommend Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno and could see myself using them for the indefinite future, if needed.

Family Law

Ashly Emerson was amazing. I went into divorce expecting a civil resolution. Quickly, however, things became very contentious leading up to a court date in which I was the Defendant against a very aggressive attorney and all afternoon cross examination even including a secret recording with everything angling to make me look bad. I thought I'm sunk. Even if I have been misrepresented they've made me look so bad we will never recover. Ashley was a fighter though! She looked at me and with determination said, "it's not over, wait until I get my turn." Immediately in the middle of the hearing when we were taken by surprise by the Plaintiffs attacks Ashley went to work quickly taking notes and putting together an ad hoc defense. It was incredible to see her capabilities when put on the spot and not only did we go on to win but by the time Ashley was done the Judge looked at the Plaintiff and said, "It looks like the only reason we are here is to determine who has to pay for being here!" Ashley saved me from a great injustice and she had to do it against a well planned surprise attack with ZERO knowledge as to what would happen forcing her to pivot on the spot and build a amazing defense. I will for ever be grateful for the job she did that day in court.

Meagan Moodie was fantastic to work with. I was confident facing an abusive ex-husband with her by my side. She ensured that I got the things that I needed for myself and my kids to be successful after the divorce. She was by my side 100% of the way, even referring me to the address confidentiality program in order to protect my family. I'm so grateful for her expertise.

I wish I could give higher praise to the team at Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno's Family Law. I was referred to Erika Gebhardt at the start of my case and to say that my stress and concern was alleviated from our first meeting is a complete understatement. Erika was not only exceptionally well studied on all aspects of my case, but her presence and approach to my case was inspirational. Her team also showed extreme thoroughness with an excellent bedside manner. This firm has the best group of lawyers in Denver.

I highly recommended Elizabeth Bonanno, with Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno. She is a highly skilled divorce attorney who knows the law. She is very personable, cares about her client and works tirelessly for you. I had a very crazy case including my ex-husband not showing up for calls, court and him being fired by two lawyers. She kept me calm, focused and prepared for anything he could throw at us. If you are looking for a knowledgeable caring hard working attorney, you will find it in Elizabeth.

Ashley Emerson at Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno handled my divorce. She did an amazing job for me in what turned out to me a highly contentious case. We did not think it would be that way but that is how it turned out and when we were blind sided in court and rocked back on our heels by a very aggressive and competent attorney on the other side Ashley showed her true capabilities. On the spot she pivoted and was ready to protect my interests. It was impressive and I will always be grateful to know she is on my side. Even today nearly two years after the divorce I still need her services. She seeks peaceful and fair resolutions but if you need to protect yourself she is tough, competent and rock solid confident. I highly recommend Ashley Emerson and Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno.

Family Law

It has been said that "everything happens for a reason." Erika Gebhardt took over this case in the middle from another wonderful attorney who laid a very strong foundation, but was temporarily unable to continue practicing law due to a medical issue. Erika never once rested on her laurels and took the easy path. In fact, she worked passionately and tirelessly to re-frame my case to a point that the end result was more than I could ever hope for. To be honest, I was a stubborn and difficult client with a complicated case that included my child being the victim of abuse, neglect, and endangerment by the other parent. My goal was to save my child from this situation and protect her going forward. I was obviously worried and stressed, so I tried to control the steps and outcome of my case. Erika was firm, but also patient with me. She helped me realize that I needed to step back and trust her to handle everything. When I would rehash old issues, Erika redirected me to stay focused and not wasted money on things that were already discussed. She also helped me realize that settling would enable us to protect my child even more than going to Court. To be very clear, I am certain that I would have ended up with a similar outcome had we gone to Court. When it came to dealing with opposing counsel, Erika tried to work with them and cooperate from day one. When they refused, she was consistently more assertive, more professional, more skilled, more determined, and better prepared. Every step of the way it was clear that I had the better attorney. While I do not mean to be inappropriate, it always seemed like she "owned" opposing counsel and was able to settle with an iron clad parenting plan that protects my child and myself until my child is an adult. Make no mistake, Erika Gebhardt does not get intimidated or pushed around! The fact that Erika is a mother herself was evident. I felt like she put her heart and soul into this case and protected my child like her very own. Nothing seemed to ever rattle Erika or crack her confidence. When I was subjected to threats against my safety and life, Erika calmly and confidently assured me that one of her partners is one of the best restraining order attorneys in the state and we would effectively utilize those resources if and when it became necessary. Again, she refrained from spending any of my money when not absolutely necessary. As I said, my case settled better than I could have ever hoped for and Erika Gebhardt was worth every penny! Now, when I encounter other parents who need a family law attorney, I refer them to her without hesitation or reservation. I tell them she is tough, fair, passionate, and has amazing attention to detail. Her advice is always spot on and she has never steered me wrong. Even though my case is settled for the foreseeable future, I will keep Erika on retainer until my child is 19 years old. In fact, she is still on top of my file to this day and takes care of things before they become an issue. Gebhardt, Emerson, Moodie, and Bonanno should be your first call every time.

Family Law

I will refer anyone to Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno without hesitation. The firm is meticulous in its billing practices, working hard to make my case as cost-effective as possible. They have gone above and beyond in researching matters related to my case, even finding documents of public record in another state. When Opposing Counsel resorted to personal attacks on both me and my attorneys, they maintained their composure and focused on the legality of the matter at hand. While the fair dissolution of my marriage is proving much more difficult than anticipated, I feel confident that I have the best representation, mindful of my specific situation, and always up-to-date on the details of my case. 

Family Law

I was going through a very difficult family situation and what I liked most is that this firm Gebhardt Emerson Moodie Bonanno listened. A few times I wanted something different than what was being suggested, they listened to my logic. Glad they were there to help me through this.
