Attorney Bailey Nelson is a member of Robinson & Henry’s Family Law Team. A seasoned, versatile, and compassionate family law attorney, Bailey is as comfortable and effective at the mediation table as she is in the courtroom.
Family law matters are among the most stressful and complex cases across all practice areas, and the ripple effect from them can be far reaching within families. That’s why Bailey’s commitment to clients extends beyond status conferences and court dates.
Upon receiving her Juris Doctor from South Texas College of Law, Bailey pursued work as a prosecutor. This role allowed her a chance to hone her command of the courtroom and an opportunity to support crime victims, including children.
Bailey spent six years as a prosecutor, and during that time she tried more than 60 jury trials and attended hundreds of hearings.
Today, Bailey sees many of the same underlying issues within her family law practice, and she is well-poised to help her clients navigate the legal landscape and an often emotionally charged process. Unlike other practice areas, family law allows Bailey to get creative with solutions as she works toward a favorable outcome for her clients.
Bailey has tried cases throughout Colorado, including Adams, Alamosa, Conejos, Costilla, El Paso, Larimer, Otero, Saguache, Teller, and Weld Counties.
In her own time, Bailey enjoys skiing and alpine climbing with her boyfriend. They’re preparing to climb South America’s Patagonia in a few years. Other pastimes include traveling, hosting dinner parties, and adding to her colossal collection of cookbooks. Bailey has a fearless Yorkie who is decidedly spoiled.
