Michael M. Mantia

Associate Attorney

Denver divorce attorney Michael Mantia Throughout the divorce process, Denver divorce attorney Michael M. Mantia puts the interests of his clients above everything else.

Mr. Mantia works diligently to try to resolve cases for his clients without the use of litigation in order to save them money and ensure that all final arrangements are exactly what they desire.

“Mediation is a fantastic way to resolve differences,” Mr. Mantia said. “Otherwise, a judge will be forced to issue a final and binding order that may or may not be 100% effective for either party. Litigation should be a last resort, but if it is necessary, and differences cannot be mediated, then you need to be prepared. A favorable court ruling is due solely to hard work, research, and preparation.”

In addition to protecting the financial interests of his clients, Mr. Mantia does everything within his power to minimize the emotional turmoil they must go through. Divorce and custody are almost always difficult matters and if you have to go through with it, you need an attorney by your side that you can count on.

“I approach each of my client’s cases as a completely unique situation,” Mr. Mantia said. “Sensitivity and understanding will sometimes resolve cases without the need of the court’s intervention. However, in other circumstances, cases calls for aggressive and persistent advocacy. I will assess your particular factual situation, your goals, and objectives in order to work with you on developing a legal strategy that will address your situation and meet your needs.”
