Joshua C. Sauer

My Philosophy

I diligently, passionately and assertively represent my clients in family law cases. They have entrusted me with an important part of their lives, and that fact is always first and foremost in my mind as I work on their case. My goal is to effectively and aggressively represent every one of my clients and make sure they understand each step of the legal process.

Josh was born in Fort Collins, Colorado and grew up on a family farm just outside of Loveland, Colorado, where he learned to appreciate the value and importance of hard work and self-motivation. Josh’s three brothers, baby sister and two great parents have contributed to Josh’s decision to practice family law, and represent clients in an effort to empower them to move forward with a family structure that will keep their children in a thriving environment. A Colorado native, Josh enjoys the high quality of life, opportunity, and environment that Colorado offers.

Josh began representing parties in family law matters in 2004, and is a highly regarded Denver divorce attorney. Up until 2014, Josh was an equal equity partner in a large Denver family law firm. In March of 2014, Josh and Brandi Petterson started Sauer & Petterson Family Law to better represent and assist clients to resolve their family law disputes and move forward productively. Josh recognizes that a dissolution of marriage, or litigation concerning parenting time, are highly emotional and negative times for families. Josh has worked hard to reduce the contention and hostility in family law cases, without backing off of his client’s important objectives and desires for their case.

Josh has successfully represented hundreds of clients through a difficult time in their lives to achieve positive results in their cases. Josh’s proven approach is to listen to the needs and goals of his clients, and then pursue those goals as if they were his own. Every family is different, each with its own unique needs and characteristics. Josh has always been on top of making sure that each of his clients knows that Josh is completely committed to their case and ensuring that they understand each step of the legal process.
