Danaé D. Woody is the founder Woody Law Firm, LLC. Ms. Woody’s experience includes complex divorce litigation, child custody disputes, child support modification and enforcement, non-traditional family formation and dissolution, adoption, appeals, and estate planning matters. She is a mentor through the Colorado Attorney Mentoring Program (CAMP) as well as Denver Law’s Professional Mentoring Program.

Ms. Woody’s litigation experience has proven that in high conflict cases, court involvement is sometimes necessary in order to achieve the best result for her clients. However, Ms. Woody is committed to helping parties decrease conflict during domestic relations proceedings and encourages parties to find mutually acceptable solutions to their disputes, when possible. Litigation can become extremely expensive, emotionally taxing, and time consuming. Further, litigation often results in dissatisfaction for all parties and children involved, as a judge can never be truly familiar with the people involved in order to make a decision that seems fair to everyone. However, when parties are able to understand the law with the assistance of their attorneys and, when children are involved, focus on what is truly best for their children, many clients feel satisfied with the results of successful settlement negotiations. Many times, negotiated settlements also result in savings of several thousands of dollars in legal and expert fees.

Ms. Woody is committed to providing quality legal services at affordable rates, as no person should be forced to go without some amount of legal advice simply because they believe they cannot afford a lawyer. Due to the array of significant rights at stake in domestic relations matters, most parties cannot afford NOT to have a lawyer.

In her spare time, Ms. Woody enjoys volunteerism, skiing, reading fiction novels, and traveling with her family.
