Bridgette Kaczmarek - Attorney
Ms. Kaczmarek was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ms. Kaczmarek attended Louisiana State University and graduated from University of New Orleans in 1996 with a BA in Communications. Ms. Kaczmarek then worked at the local NBC affiliate in New Orleans until her decision to go to law school in 1998.
Graduating from Loyola University New Orleans Law School in 2001, Ms. Kaczmarek received her Juris Doctorate in Common Law, the law recognized by 49 States and Great Britain. She also received a Certificate in Civil Law which is the law recognized by Louisiana and the remainder of the world. Ms. Kaczmarek had the opportunity of interning with the New Orleans Saints during the summer of 2000 working on the stadium deal.
Ms. Kaczmarek began working with attorneys in New Orleans, practicing civil law specializing mostly in divorce, child custody, personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. My family moved to Colorado in the summer of 2007 after trying to give New Orleans a chance to rebound from Hurricane Katrina. While we miss New Orleans, we loved the climate and people in Colorado.
Ms. Kaczmarek began working in a workers’ compensation firm in Colorado Springs and then worked for the El Paso County District Attorney’s office for six months before moving on to a large firm, specializing solely in Family Law matters.
In November of 2009, Ms. Kaczmarek began working for herself, bringing her unique brand of southern hospitality to her Colorado Springs Family Law. She enjoys working on her own, where she is able to strictly focus on children of divorce and providing excellent customer care to her clients. Working hard in keeping costs down including payment plans for the everyday working man or woman is what she prides herself being able to do. Ms. Kaczmarek understands that not everyone has the money to put up front for high retainers. If they can provide a retainer, those individuals deserve to see their retainers go far.
I love spending time with my own family. My son and I read Harry Potter together every night. I enjoy that time with my son - when we get to spend an hour plus, just the two of us. I know how important this time is to me, which is why I fight for all of my clients to spend that type of time with their own children.
I am accessible for my client - providing an emergency contact number for nights and weekends. I am prompt in communications, returning emails and phone calls within 24 business hours (if not an emergency).
