Lila Sol, Esq.
Lila opened Sol Law with the goal of using her three diverse areas of practice to serve clients and the community. As an attorney, Lila has worked roughly equally in the Court, in private practice, and for a non-profit. Working both inside the court and litigating to the court has given her a unique perspective and ability to successfully address her clients' needs and proceed to successful outcomes. Whether working a multi-million dollar case or representing the indigent, she puts her full effort into each individual, unique case.
Sol Law | Experience
Lila's work as an attorney started in Boulder County District Court when she clerked for Judge Patrick Butler and Judge Andrew Hartman in the domestic and civil dockets. Thereafter, Lila worked for a prominent Boulder law firm as an associate attorney, working primarily in domestic relations, with some civil and appellate representation. She then worked in the Denver office of Colorado Legal Services in the Family and Children's Unit, representing indigent parties in divorce and custody matters. She later returned to the Boulder Court to serve as a Family Court Facilitator where she conducted nearly 900 status conference hearings.
Lila has been practicing law for nearly 10 years and been in the legal field for nearly 20 years. Whether advocating for indigent clients, being a neutral for the Court, or litigating complex and high dollar matters, Lila is dedicated to the task at hand and passionate about her work. Sol Law is the unique combination of all of Lila's experiences; the diversity of her experience and clientele is one of the reasons for the firm's success. She is able to combine full representation to a variety of clients with her dedication to access to justice issues. This healthy mix of work keeps her engaged and interested in the law and contemporary issues that affect families. At any one time, she might be litigating a cryptocurrency divorce, providing CFI services for the Court to indigent parties, completing low-bono representation for Colorado Legal Services, settling a marital dispute regarding high-dollar Boulder real estate and appealing a child support dispute. The key to the firm's focus is that while Lila's experience and interest are diverse, the focus of the work is centered in domestic relations matters so that her skills and knowledge are always concrete and centered on the legal issues that most often touch families' lives.
