Barlow Anderson moved to Colorado in 2011 to attend school at Denver University Sturm College of Law. After graduating in 2014, Barlow began work as an Associate Attorney at a highly reputable family law firm that specialized in fathers’ rights and large asset dissolution and allocation cases. While there, Barlow recognized an imbalance between the cost of legal representation and the clients’ needs and expectations.
Understanding much of the high cost of litigation comes from parties’ inability to proactively reach just and equitable resolution, Barlow worked toward equitable ends and kept his clients informed of their rights and responsibilities under Colorado law. After nearly two years, he began work as a Law Clerk to two District Court judges in the 18th Judicial District’s Douglas County. Assisting his judges in Criminal, Civil, Family, Probate, and Mental Health fields of law, Barlow discovered the importance of making the legal process clear and approachable to non-attorneys.
Barlow’s love for the law sprouted from personal experiences which led him to law school, but he looks for every opportunity to enjoy the real reason he moved to Colorado, his love of the outdoors.
An experienced outdoorsman, Barlow has been rock climbing, ice climbing, white water kayaking, mountain biking, and fly fishing for more than fifteen years. Whether hundreds of feet up granite cliffs or Colorado surfing (freestyle whitewater kayak surfing), he makes the most out of everything he does. But what he really looks forward to is training his now four year old son to join him on his crazy adventures.
A few times a month, Barlow teaches people to rock climb. Although he can’t get out as much as he likes to, he loves sharing his love for the sport to other people.
Barlow also has a love of Japanese culture and tradition. In addition to teaching himself Japanese language, he practices Kendo (Japanese fencing) and Iaido.
As for his family, his wife is a biochemist at a chemical and sample testing facility, and his young son is attending Pre-Kindergarten. They all love climbing and getting out to the mountain with their dog, Ginga, and actively try to visit family in Utah when they can.
