Michael J. Wadle, Attorney


Michael Wadle was a partner in the Denver law firm Gorsuch Kirgis Campbell Walker & Grover for 16 years before starting his own law firm in the Denver Tech Center in 1990. His prior practice included commercial and personal injury litigation as well as labor law and real estate. Since 1995, he has limited his practice exclusively to matrimonial and family law. 

Michael encourages procedures designed to work  collaboratively with opposing parties and counsel where possible to minimize the financial expense and secure the best cost benefit to the parties.  He believes the most effective resolution for the benefit of the client involves negotiated settlements, whenever possible, but he has the expertise to litigate the issue, if necessary.
