Craig R. Valentine, managing attorney of Modern Family Law’s Colorado Springs office, represents families in all domestic relations matters. Before coming to Modern Family Law, Craig represented plaintiffs in class action and mass tort actions, as well as personal injury, medical malpractice, and other legal areas. The cases on which he worked recovered over $1 billion from defendants.
When the opportunity arose to get into family law, Craig jumped at the chance. As an undergraduate, Craig studied marriage and family relationships with an eye toward becoming a marriage therapist. That training, coupled with his extensive legal experience, gives Craig a different perspective on family law, and how to best serve his family-law clients.
While Craig’s career has taken him all over the country and state representing clients, he and his family have called Colorado Springs home since he graduated from law school. He is excited to be able to spend more of his professional time representing people in southern Colorado.

The legal system can be intimidating, but Craig strives to make it understandable and approachable and to make the process easier for his clients. Family law is particularly challenging because of how emotional and devastating the issues can be. Craig strives to help his clients get through the current crisis by planning for the future.
With his unique background in high-stakes multi-million-dollar litigation, Craig is ready and able to help you through the most contentious proceeding. If your case requires litigation, Craig will prepare you for that process and bring his years of litigation experience to work to seek the best possible outcome for you.
But Craig knows that the best outcome in family law does not usually involve extensive litigation. Craig’s first goal is to help you find an outcome for you and your family that works to everyone’s benefit. After a family law case is over, the family often has to live with the outcome for years. If at all possible, Craig wants to help you achieve an outcome that allows your family to move forward, heal, and find a new normal that works for the whole family.
Craig received a Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University. Craig then received his Juris Doctorate from Washington University in St. Louis.
