Joshua Wohl, JD
1660 South Albion St, Ste 322, Denver CO 80222
Joshua S. Wohl has practiced as a family law attorney and mediator in Colorado since 2001. While Josh has extensive experience as a litigator, in 2015 Josh made the decision to move his practice away from litigation, and to focus his talents and energies on helping families resolve family law disputes using methods other than litigation. Josh believes that litigation should be a last-resort for most families. The true costs of litigation, whether apparent or hidden, financial, emotional, psychological or physical, can have a tremendous negative impact on divorcing spouses and their children. There are better, more civilized paths to the resolution of family disputes, and Josh has dedicated his practice to helping families find those paths.
Josh is an experienced and compassionate mediator, skilled at helping individuals find common ground upon which they can reach agreement. He brings his comprehensive knowledge of family law to the mediation table, as well as his advanced dispute resolution skills, and can provide unrepresented parties will fully drafted legal documents to be filed in court upon completion of the mediation process. Josh is also available to arbitrate disputes, when parties are unable to reach resolution but still want to avoid going to court.
Josh practices as a Collaborative law attorney, assisting families to shift their focus from ‘what can I get for myself’ to ‘what will be the best resolution for this family.’ Collaborative law is a team based, negotiation-centered approach to dispute resolution that takes place outside the court system, and shifts control of the pace and outcome from the lawyers and judges to the parties. Josh is a member of the Board of Directors of Colorado Collaborative Divorce Professionals.

Josh is available to assist individuals as Settlement Counsel, representing parties as an expert in case settlement. In this capacity, Josh will guide a party through the legal process, and help position the case so that settlement is the most likely outcome, but also so that the case is prepared to litigate if necessary. If litigation becomes unavoidable, Josh will assist in transitioning representation to litigation counsel who will expertly represent the party in court. Josh is also available to assist parties as unbundled counsel, providing advice, guidance and drafting assistance to individuals who wish to represent themselves in Court, but who still could benefit from low-cost legal assistance.
