Why Choose Us

Colbert Family Law strives to help Alaskans peacefully navigate family changes in good times and bad; to advise clients honestly; to prioritize the well-being of children in all family law matters; and to minimize conflict and promote positive resolutions in family law disputes.


Lori is an experienced family law attorney who is particularly skilled in managing high-conflict custody cases and high-asset divorce cases. She also continues to do a lot of work in LGBTQ family law matters, as her previous firm did. Trained in Collaborative Law, Lori is a member of the Alaska Association of Collaborative Professionals and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP).


Lori is not a run-of-the-mill family law attorney. Whereas many attorneys maintain a high volume of cases and do the bare minimum they need to for their clients, Lori prioritizes doing high-quality work, doing as much as she can for her clients, and focusing on doing what’s right for their kids. She connects well with people and often ends up with more clients than she needs; she would prefer to take a lower volume of cases but be able to offer those clients a higher quality of service.


Lori cares about her clients and what they are going through. At the same time, she will tell them what they need to hear, not just what they want to hear. She always makes it a priority to do what is right for the children. Lori finds it very satisfying to help people through some of the most challenging times in their lives and help them build the future they want for their families.
