Jeff Van Fleet has spent the bulk of his life in the Rocky Mountains. He utilizes his diverse background to provide quality legal representation with compassion. Jeff is a family lawyer. However, Jeff redefines family law as meeting the diverse needs of a family in all phases of life, both during challenges and successes. Jeff graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law. In law school Jeff competed in variety of competitions, including Client Counseling, which he and his partner won each year they competed. Prior to law school, he spent nearly 18 years as a law enforcement officer in Colorado, and served 4 years with the United States Marine Corps. Jeff has handled divorces and various types of child custody cases in both Wyoming and Colorado. He has represented clients whom reside here in the United States, as well as those living abroad. His experience as a law enforcement officer gives him unique insight into the law.
"I recognize that as an attorney, I need to know more than what the law is, I must be aware of how the law affects the individuals I represent, physically, emotionally and financially. I have learned the phrase "counselor at law" has more to do with counseling somedays than it does with the law. I have learned that even the most rationale of people can become overwhelmed when faced with a challenging legal issue. My job is to help you gain control of the situation through clear communication and accurate information."
Extremely reliable and understanding - did an outstanding job
"Jeff did an excellent job helping me through my case. He handled everything very wisely and professionally. He got money back for me that the opposing party had taken. I felt very comfortable knowing that he was taking care of the whole process. He was very proactive in getting information out of the other side and was always very prompt in communicating with me. I would definitely recommend him!!"
Helped me navigate a difficult time in life.
"Jeff is a true professional. He helped me get through a difficult process smoothly. He listened to my concerns and helped me come to a fair and equitable resolution with my wife."
