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.

The firm of Prendergast & Associates P.C. welcomes clients from all walks of life and diversity backgrounds.  We actively welcome individuals who identify themselves as persons of color or who may identify themselves as being gay, lesbian, or transgender.  We have experience in resolving cases that bring gay or lesbian clients into family law litigation over domestic partnerships, child custody, allocation of parental responsibilities and allocation of parenting time which are not routinely handled by other local law firms.  We consider ourselves an open and affirming law firm.  Due to our extensive experience in assisting individuals accused of criminal sex offenses, and domestic violence, as well as victims of such acts, we have developed significant experience in representing gay or lesbian clients when charged with such crimes.  Such cases require unusual sensitivity and understanding.
