Johanna Urman, family law attorney, Boulder Colorado

Johanna Urman, Attorney

Johanna Urman is a graduate of the University of Colorado School of Law. She was first introduced to the practice of family law as a student attorney in the American Indian Law Clinic where she represented clients in Indian Child Welfare Act cases. In law school Johanna was active in starting student groups and interested in the Boulder Start-up scene. Upon graduating, she worked for several Boulder-based start-ups and practiced entrepreneurial law, including corporate securities law for small reporting companies before switching to the practice of family law.   She is committed to the principles of client centered lawyering, and strives to serve clients by minimizing rather than maximizing conflict throughout the divorce process. Before attending law school, Johanna graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Colorado. She spent six months in Israel studying Jewish laws and practices as well as working for a U.S. based Israel advocacy non-profit.
