About Cheyenne Somers
Cheyenne Somers’ practice is focused on complex civil litigation and family law matters. She works closely with Duncan and Christopher Griffiths in their civil litigation practice, focusing on construction, insurance, real estate, partitions, and business disputes. Her family law practice focuses on divorce, common law marriage, allocation of parental responsibilities, and related domestic relations matters.
Before becoming an attorney, Cheyenne worked at Griffiths Law for six years as a paralegal, handling complex litigation cases with multiple shareholders. During her time as a paralegal, Cheyenne attended trials and focused on learning how to execute trial strategies and tactics. When she was not assisting in court, Cheyenne gained experience in various areas of law, including trusts, business organizational structures, income analysis, tax, construction defects, and principles of financial accounting. Cheyenne continued to work full-time at the firm while attending law school.
Cheyenne earned her Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and her undergraduate degree from the University of the Pacific, where she played Division I soccer. During law school, Cheyenne competed as part of the Sturm College of Law’s NFL Negotiation Team, where she learned the strategy of negotiating creative deals for clients. Cheyenne also volunteered with the Virtual Pro Se Legal Clinic, where she learned how crucial it is for everyone to have access to justice. Cheyenne received many honors for high academic achievement during law school, including scholarships and scholastic excellence awards.
Outside of work, Cheyenne enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She also enjoys running with her dog, traveling, reading, having game nights with friends, and playing soccer.
They were on top of every situation and made me realize how much they really care about their clients. Very professional, extremely knowledgeable in any family law situation. Absolute bulldogs in the courtroom. I would like to thank the amazing Ms. Cheyenne Somers who recently passed the Bar Exam and just shredded opposing council in my final hearing, and of course Mr. Chris Griffiths. He believed in me from the get go and went hard to win my case because he loves to help and he really loves to win. Amazing law firm, couldn’t be happier.
