Attorney Faith Betz has almost 20 years of experience practicing law in both Colorado and Tennessee. Upon her graduation from the University of Tennessee Law School, she was able to gain experience in multiple areas of law, including immigration law, family law, civil law, and trusts and estates. Prior to joining us at Divorce Matters, Faith also worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Adams County. Her experience makes her an expert in dispute resolution, negotiation, analysis, assessment, and listening. Faith is also a member of the Family Law Section of the Colorado Bar Association and is a frequent presenter to community groups on the subject of immigration, estate and trust planning, and dispute resolution.
From an early age, Faith knew she wanted to make a difference. Growing up in Eastern Tennessee in a farming family, she saw the disparity in justice served to her Appalachian community and knew she wanted to do something to help. She became an attorney out of her desire to help underserved individuals facing barriers to justice, especially low-income people and people with mental illness. Since then, she has spent her legal career representing the voiceless, both as a guardian ad litem for children and as representation for immigrants seeking asylum and refugee status.
While Faith is an expert in just about every area of family law, she is particularly adept at handling complex cases with legal issues from different areas of law. Her experience in various legal genres allows her to help her clients across the board when it comes to these complex cases. Faith will also complete her training to become a mediator this month, allowing her to mediate cases as a neutral third-party when it comes to family law, probate law, and elder law cases. This training will allow her to work on both sides of mediation, as she is also an experienced mediation attorney, who zealously represents her clients interests through mediation. She loves the idea of her clients being able to resolve some, or even all, of their issues without the emotional and financial toll of litigation.
In her free time, Faith likes to spend time with her family at their home in Loveland and volunteer for various organizations. She is a volunteer at the ISTAR (Indigenous Science Technology Arts and Resilience) Camp sponsored by Colorado State University’s Ethnic Studies Department, where her son attends camp as a member of the Oglala Lakota Nation. She has also volunteered for community agencies via Ask-A-Lawyer events and has represented asylum seekers as pro-bono attorney. She is an animal lover to the n-th degree and spends time presenting to animal welfare organizations about estate planning, especially when it comes to their dear pets. When she isn’t working or trying to make the world a better place, Faith enjoys vegetarian cooking, volunteering at her child’s school, and caring for her family pets!
