Our Reputation for Excellence
As skilled mediators, Prendergast & Associates negotiate fair settlements in extremely complex cases. Teaming with younger associate attorneys, Paul A. Prendergast and Nicole J. Jones focus their efforts primarily on criminal defense and domestic relations. Because of Prendergast & Associates, P.C.'s outstanding reputation within the local legal community, many of our clients are referred to us by other Colorado lawyers and legal professionals. The Littleton divorce attorneys of The Prendergast Law Firm PC take on the most complex family litigation. They have successfully dissolved and divided marital estates worth millions of dollars, uncovered hidden monetary assets, and settled the most difficult divorce cases involving domestic violence, child sexual abuse, parental kidnapping, and substance abuse.
Experience that Makes a Difference
Prior to starting his own law firm attorney Prendergast served as a law clerk to the Honorable Donald P. Smith in the Colorado Court of Appeals. In 1984, just a year after beginning his private practice, Mr. Prendergast argued his first Colorado Supreme Court case. As a criminal defender, he has represented clients accused of violent crimes, sex offenses, drug trafficking, white collar financial crimes, and other severe crimes including a number of first-degree murder cases. As a former special prosecutor, Mr. Prendergast is able to analyze the important issues on both sides of every case.
Just as impressive as his private practice accomplishments, Mr. Prendergast has a long record of teaching, lecturing, and publishing. He has taught courses on family law, criminal law, torts, and personal injury to students of Arapahoe Community College in Littleton. Mr. Prendergast has lectured to judges at the Municipal Judicial Conference of the State of Colorado. He has given talks to fellow attorneys at the State Public Defenders Conference; regional Bar associations including the Denver Bar Association and the Douglass/Elbert, Jefferson, and Arapahoe Counties Bar Associations; and the Young Lawyers Association. Mr. Prendergast has also presented lectures on First Amendment rights and academic freedom to the ACLU. Paul Prendergast has penned biographies of notable Colorado defense attorneys in "Colorado Lawyer." He often contributes articles to various local bar publications.
