Get To Know Maren Skulborstad

  • I’m a true Colorado native. I was born, raised and educated in our great state and I am proud to work helping Coloradans with their unique legal needs. As an avid outdoors person, I love to camp, country dance, fish, and horseback ride
  • I’m a true litigator. 90% of my career has been devoted to litigation practice. I’ve appeared and argued before many Colorado courts, including the Court of Appeals. I am just as comfortable in the courtroom as I am when I sit down to counsel my clients. I treat each matter with care, and I pride myself on my negotiation skills. I have experience negotiating excellent results for my clients.
  • I have an 8.3 rating on the legal website Avvo, over 10 years of experience and worked Downtown Denver as a 17th street lawyer. Now, I am bringing that experience to Colorado Springs and the Denver Metro Area where people value spending more time making connections and enjoying Colorado life.

Mission

My mission is to bring my years of experience practicing law in downtown Denver to The Skulborstad Legal Group, LLC. I proudly chose to call this place home, and I value being a resource for people in our community. My mission is to advocate for my clients as they navigate the difficult emotions that dominate many cases. I understand how intimidating and overwhelming the legal system can be. I want to take on your legal burdens so you can concentrate on what matters most: taking care of yourself and your loved ones. We can work together to make sure that you end up happy, healthy and free from the burdens that are weighing on your mind.


My favorite part of my job is helping my clients go up against other attorneys. I love making sure that my clients have the representation they need and deserve. I love being an advocate.

Focus

My focus is always on my clients. Every client and case are different. I do the things that make a difference: I pick up the phone, I answer your emails, and I give it to you straight. I am deeply drawn to the emotional aspects of family law, personal injury law, and wills, trust & estates. I want to help your family with legal services during difficult or exciting times. I also take pride in helping people protect themselves and get justice in court as a civil litigator. That’s why I love this work.
