Family Law Update
Child Support in Colorado

While parents of minor children may choose to go their separate ways and sever financial ties, children of separated parents will continue to need financial help from both of their parents. The law in Colorado recognizes the importance of financial support from both parents has on the future success of children and is structured to provide that support to these children.  
Criminal Law Update
What to Know About Open Carry Laws in Colorado 

Many Coloradans love guns and are supporters of our 2nd Amendment right to bear arms. State laws vary dramatically on the rights of residents to carry firearms, and Colorado is one of the more permissive states regarding gun laws. However, any weapons charges resulting from illegal possession or carrying of a firearm are still harshly prosecuted, and so it is important to know the law.

Spotlight on Hayleigh P. Lidbury
Hayleigh Lidbury grew up in Dallas, Texas, but spent most of her adolescence visiting family in New York and Chicago. She was inducted into the Chicago sport’s fan club at a young age by her dad and is such an avid Cubbies, Go Cubs Go, and Bears fan that it’s embarrassing at this point. Therefore, unsurprisingly, Hayleigh decided to attend Loyola University Chicago where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology.

After graduation, Hayleigh remained in Chicago and worked as a paralegal for the managing partner of a midsize Labor and Workers’ Compensation firm. After deciding to attend law school, Hayleigh moved back to Dallas and worked as a Bankruptcy Coordinator at a Complex Civil Litigation firm. She recently graduated from The University of Tulsa with Honors in 2017.

Hayleigh is looking forward to experiencing all the hiking, skiing, and craft beer that Denver has to offer. During her free time, Hayleigh enjoys cooking, knitting, and spending time with her family.
