Partnering with Our Clients for a Successful Future

At Knies, Helland & McPherson Law, our founders and partners, Jennifer Knies, Jennifer Helland and Kelly McPherson, joined together to create a family law firm unlike any other. Our attorneys have developed a completely new approach to custody and dissolution of marriage cases. We recognize that every family is unique and work hard to partner with clients to develop a personalized solution that will work best for their situation.

At Knies, Helland & McPherson Law, we work with clients to find the right path for them, handling traditional divorces and custody matters – we’re also highly experienced in mediation, and we offer divorce coaching as well as other a la carte services. We understand that going through a divorce can be excruciating, so we partner with each client to come up with a customized solution that meets each person’s individual needs and goals.

Our Experience

The founding partners at Knies, Helland & McPherson Law, are well-respected lawyers who have decades of law experience between them. Our founders are close friends who have tried cases together over the years. Each attorney handles their own cases, but always work as a team. So, when you hire Knies, Helland & McPherson Law, you get the expertise of the whole firm, as well as one of the partners as your lead attorney.

The firm has extensive experience in military family law. Attorney Jennifer Knies is a graduate of West Point and Attorney Kelly McPherson is a graduate of the Air Force Academy. Additionally, Attorney Jennifer Helland has written articles on the new military retirement system and is a resource for local attorneys on military issues such as GI Bill benefits. All three of our founding partners have worked with military families to help them through legal conflict and move forward positively with their lives. Knies, Helland & McPherson Law always offers discounts to military and law enforcement families.

Our law firm is deeply invested in the Colorado Springs community, for this reason we have partnered with The Home Front Cares, a Colorado Springs-based military non-profit organization. We donate 5% of our net profit annually to this organization. The Home Front Cares provides an emergency financial bridge and responsive support to Colorado’s military members, veterans, and their families.
