Griffiths Law’s predecessor firm, Gutterman Griffiths, was formed in May 2002 by Suzanne Griffiths and Sheila Gutterman. In a country where going into battle for a divorce was often the norm, Suzanne and Sheila introduced a new concept that stressed three concepts: do no harm, consent, and triage. Sheila Gutterman believed that clien ts should be treated the same way as doctors treat their patients and vowed to do as little harm as possible. Sheila became the “mother” of Collaborative Law in Colorado. The firm offered simplified dissolution, mediation, arbitration and all options for resolving disputes. Suzanne Griffiths contributed her significant expertise in handling complex and challenging financial and international parenting cases. Both founders are noted for significant teaching and writing on legal issues and both have won numerous awards. The firm has been involved in some of the most complex and high asset cases in Colorado and has also pioneered changes in the law regarding children

Shortly after the founding of the firm, Diana Powell joined Gutterman Griffiths, bringing decades of experience as a securities and business law attorney to the firm. Powell always says that your divorce is the biggest business transaction of your life.

Ann Gushurst, with her creative approach to thorny and complex legal problems, joined as a shareholder in 2005. She brings incredible technical expertise and deep knowledge of Colorado case law. She was instrumental in pioneering changes in the law for same-sex parents in Colorado.
