Lily D. Appelman: Attorney with Hunnicutt & Appelman, P.C.
Attorney Awards


Order of St. Ives.

Lily morphed into becoming an attorney after exploring diverse career options. She spent many years as an art dealer and appraiser of late 19th & 20th century works of art on paper. She has traveled extensively, and she is the matriarch of a large and blended family. Lily’s unique background and varied interests contribute to the empathy and wisdom with which she shepherds her clients through the emotional, psychological, and financial turmoil of divorce. Lily’s clients appreciate the mature and healing perspective which she brings to each client’s unique circumstances to help each move forward with their lives post divorce.

Upon graduating law school, Lily joined Bill Hunnicutt at the law firm of Sherman & Howard. Their close professional partnership continued when Bill opened his own firm in 1992, and Lily became his partner shortly thereafter. Lily has been at the vanguard of Colorado divorce lawyers promoting collaborative family law. In addition to being a lecturer and trainer, she was a founding board member of the Colorado Collaborative Law Professionals, and she was a contributing author to Collaborative Law: A New Model for Dispute Resolution.
