We provide comprehensive contract services, including carefully reviewing proposed contracts to ensure that our clients' interests are thoroughly protected. In the event that a contract is breached or terminated, we can assist the clients in collecting funds owed to them through the use of bond claims and by attaching or foreclosing on mechanics' liens. In addition, the firm has substantial experience drafting notices of disburser to require owners, lenders, or other parties to make disbursements on a project to pay subcontractors and materialmen directly, or to withhold sufficient funds to cover the claim in the event of a dispute. FEDERAL PUBLIC WORKS Construction contracts entered into with the federal government are governed by distinct laws and must be drafted according to a uniform contract format whenever practicable. The process can be more complex than entering into private construction contracts, but an experienced attorney can help expedite the process by carefully negotiating, reviewing and drafting contract terms. Not only do our attorneys assist with drafting and reviewing federal construction contracts, we also offer comprehensive services in regard to bonds claims. In anticipation of disputes, the Miller Act requires contractors to post performance and payment bonds on any construction contract exceeding $100,000 for use in the event the contract is terminated and damages are assessed against them. A performance bond secures performance of a contract by a contractor, whereas a payment bond ensures that all laborers and suppliers are paid for their work under the contract. Miller & Law, P.C. can assist clients with surety negotiations, contract review and assessment, and any related litigation matters involving such bond claims and disputes. STATE PUBLIC WORKS Our attorneys assist in all aspects of negotiating, reviewing, and drafting state public works contracts and in negotiating bond claims when contracts have been breached or terminated.

Our team handles matters related to divorce, alimony, child support, custody, visitation, pre-marital planning, and more. For three decades, the AV-Preeminent rated firm of Miller & Law, P.C. has guided spouses, parents, and families in the Denver and Littleton areas through difficult divorces, spousal support (alimony), child support, custody, visitation disputes, and related family law matters. Dissolution of Marriage (Divorce) Attorneys at Miller & Law, P.C. understand that divorce can be one of the most difficult legal processes a person may ever go through. Our attorneys are sensitive to the intense emotions that are often involved in these matters, and rely on strategic negotiation, mediation, and litigation tactics that have the best chance of bringing about a swift, favorable resolution. We will stand by your side from the initial filing for dissolution of marriage, through negotiations, the equitable division of marital property, mediation, and litigation for contested divorces. Child Custody & Visitation, When spouses with children divorce, the court will allocate physical custody and legal custody to one or both parents in a combination that is in the child's best interests. While physical custody refers to the parent with whom the child physically resides, legal custody refers to decision-making responsibilities concerning religion, medical care, and education. When one parent is awarded physical custody, the other is typically granted visitation rights or "parenting time." Grandparents' Rights In addition to awarding visitation to parents, the court may also award custody or visitation rights to grandparents if it is determined to be in the child's best interests. Grandparents may petition for visitation after the parents divorce or are separated, when someone other than a parent has custody, or when the child's parents have died. In addition, grandparents may also be able to petition for custody if the child has been removed from the custody of his or her parents, or if the grandparent has taken care of the child for a statutory time period. Child Support Whether they are divorced, separated, or unmarried former partners, both parents are generally held responsible for the financial needs of their children, including the costs of the child's medical needs, educational needs, and childcare. Basic support obligations are determined by statutory guidelines and may be affected by the custody arrangement and amount of parenting time each parent has with the child. At Miller & Law, P.C., we represent former spouses in determining support obligations and collecting child support payments. We also assist single mothers seeking support payments by initiating proceedings to establish paternity, obtaining support orders, and pursuing support collections. Modifications It is not unusual for a parent's circumstances to change after a family law court order is issued. When this happens, our attorneys assist in submitting motions to the court for the modification of a court order, including parenting time modifications, decision-making modifications, and move-away modifications. In order for a modification to be granted, there must be a substantial change in circumstances such as job loss, job-related relocation, or remarriage of one of the spouses.
