About Pulitzer Law Firm

"When you are on the river, that’s the closest to the truth you will ever get."
Family practice law chose me!

Gary Pulitzer – When I finished law school, I envisioned a career as a corporate attorney or a civil litigator, yet my first job offer came from a family practice firm. Now, 27+ years later, I find myself passionately committed to this essential and productive way to help people.

Gary originally hails from New Orleans. He received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Colorado in 1983. He worked as an entrepreneur in the seafood and real estate industries prior to receiving his Juris Doctorate from Touro College in Huntington, New York in 1992. While in law school, he served as Notes and Comments Editor of the Law Review.

Gary is married and has two children. He enjoys skiing, hiking, fly-fishing, collecting music, and most important, spending time with his family.

I received my B.A. from the University of Colorado in 1983 and Juris Doctorate from Touro College in Huntington, New York in 1992. While in law school, I served as Notes and Comments Editor of the Law Review. As the founder of Pulitzer Family Law, I have devoted my practice to family law since 1993, and my practice has successfully represented hundreds of clients in the Denver-metro area. Additionally, I have completed extensive mediation training, and combined with experience in helping clients, I offer my services as a mediator.

I pledge to help you move beyond the difficult situations and to arrive at successful outcomes. My process reflects strategic thinking combined with a heartfelt concern for the outcome. I will be your tireless advocate for your rights and will help you make sound, well-informed decisions about your future. I am devoted to effective personal interactions that demonstrate a commitment to clients, the law, and to successful outcomes. I have enjoyed great success inside the courtroom because of diligent, tireless preparation and attention to detail. Yet, rather than letting a judge make the final decision, I strive to resolve cases outside of court.
Practice Areas

Perhaps the best way to know me, though, is through the eyes of my previous clients who say:

  • Carefully covered legal issues and explained details
  • Worked to keep costs down and to avoid court appearances
  • Diffused the acrimony and steered the outcome towards a child-focused resolution
  • Strategically planned the process. Using his experience with family law was very apparent
  • Spoke with me personally right away instead of asking me to make an appointment
  • Honestly, sincerely, and genuinely cares about clients

Meet Paralegal Tracie Paiz

There’s a common bond between Gary and Tracie—their love of family. It supports their strong desire to help each client attain the best possible outcome—a critical foundation in helping people transition through family changes. Gary has considerable confidence in Tracie saying, “Tracie’s work ethic is an important asset to Pulitzer Family Law. My clients have come to trust her and to understand that her significant knowledge of Colorado divorce law will help us ensure success with each case.”

Even before graduation from the University of Colorado in 1994, I knew that I was interested in the legal field. I thought about becoming an attorney but realized that I am more of a “behind the scenes” person. This led me to pursue a career path as a paralegal. In 1996, I completed the program at Denver Paralegal Institute, and by the late 1990’s I was well-situated with a law firm where I was in a position to have a positive impact.

My work with Gary Pulitzer started in October 2000, and my career with Gary has led to increasing responsibility. Mainly my work involves drafting documents and financials, assisting with client contact and court contact, and managing the day-to-day task of office administration. Each day brings a unique mix of human interaction and attention to detail. I’ve seen many transitions such as the movement away from paper, land mail, etc. to electronic documentation and virtual hearings. Additionally, the transition from court-decided cases to a collaborative divorce agreement has introduced a focused, human element to family law that creates more satisfied clients and that brings me a lot of career satisfaction.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two dogs. One is Jack Russell Terrier and the other a Toy Fox Terrier—each one a true champion of sibling rivalry. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends, attending concerts, and playing golf.

I look forward to building a relationship with you and demonstrating my commitment to the success of your unique case.

Legal excellence powered by the ethical values of justice, honesty, empathy, and respect.
