Prior to joining Kalamaya | Goscha, Georgina worked with the Honorable Elizabeth Starrs in Denver District Court. Georgina grew familiar with family law issues including divorce and child custody.

Georgina’s time at the District Attorney’s office allows her to analyze a criminal case from multiple angles.

Georgina has helped her clients charged with alcohol related driving offenses reach satisfactory outcomes in their cases. In April 2017, she took a DUI case to trial against the elected district attorney. After deliberating for almost four hours, the jury returned a verdict of not guilty.

Georgina’s representation extends to fighting for your privilege to drive by requesting a license revocation hearing through the Department of Motor Vehicles. Notably, she successfully argued that a police officer improperly pulled over a vehicle which resulted in the client keeping a valid driver’s license.

A Tailored Approach

Georgina strives to offer a variety of approaches to resolving legal problems.

Georgina is certified and trained in collaborative law. The foundation of the collaborative law approach is an agreement not to litigate. If a team-style, non-litigation approach to your divorce interests you, be sure to ask Georgina for more information.

In addition to a collaborative approach, Georgina also offers unbundled legal services. If you feel comfortable handling your divorce on your own but want to ensure you are reaching the best possible outcome, consider having Georgina working in the background to consult on strategy, review and edit court filings, and assist in preparation of settlement agreements. Georgina can also represent you on a limited-scope basis to prepare for and attend a court hearing.

You can rest assured that Georgina will spend the time to determine the most cost-efficient and effective representation for your individual case.
