Description of Practice

This Mediator is Certified
FAIR FINANCIAL OUTCOMES & PRACTICAL PARENTING PLANS Denisa can help you work out smart, respectful, and fair divorce.

“After being married for 30 years, it was difficult to understand the financial complexities of dividing our assets and responsibilities. Denisa listened to our concerns, answered questions, and was able to guide us through options that allowed us to secure a successful agreement with respect and integrity to the many years of our marriage.” ~ David

"Denisa guided us in considering not only our children's schedules but also our work demands; addressed financial costs involved in raising our children beyond immediate expenses, and as a result we were able to create a practical co-parenting plan that was a good fit for our "new" family dynamic." ~ David & Gretchen

“Besides being professional and fair, we are walking away from this feeling that the settlement was equitable. Most important is that we are not adversaries and can still talk to each other. So many people end their marriage hating each other leaving friends, family, and children paying the price.” ~ Gary and Linda

US Magistrate Judge, Denver, CO: “Dear Ms. Tova: As a former district court judge in the State of Colorado and as a trial court judge for over 21 years, I want to extend my personal thanks to you for assisting citizens of Colorado with dividing their finances rationally during their divorce."

Professional Background

20 years ago I launched a financial planning career as a Certified Financial Planner. I saw an alarming pattern. Divorce left people in financial ruin for many years that often resulted from mounting legal fees and divorce agreements that did not take the future of either party into account, which lead me to expand my services as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst and Mediator. I’ve helped hundreds of divorcing couples reach a settlement saving tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. Divorcing couples need financial information and education to help them look beyond their divorce and consider how the settlement will impact them in the long term. I've assisted hundreds of parents craft a practical parenting plan. Serving as a Divorce Financial Analyst and Mediator gives me a unique set of tools to help couples take an intellectual approach to their divorce.

I mediated a divorce where a spouse had a private equity interest and the other was a home-maker. In other mediation, the couple dealt with a less complex financial construct, but it was complicated by the fact that one spouse brought into the marriage substantial assets some of which became co-mingled.

For parents, I believe that parenting plan is a live document that needs to take into consideration children's and parents' schedules. I take practical approach to help guide parents to craft a co-parenting plan that causes the least amount of disruption for the children and lessen the trauma of divorce.

Experience

I've mediated close to 2000 cases in the Colorado area.
