Justice for the Most Vulnerable Members of Society

Gabriela Sandoval offers legal and related services for children, families, and victims of injury and wrongful death.  She has recently opened a new division of her law practice dedicated solely to representing adults and children who have suffered serious injury or wrongful death due to negligence, reckless behavior or intentional act.  See below for information about the types of injury cases handled.  For further information about Personal Injury and Wrongful Death cases, please visit the “Injuries” menu at the top of this website.

Gabriela initially built her practice to serve the vulnerable and exploited members of society.  Her work began in 2004 when she focused on animal protection.  Her work grew into child protection and now she serves victims of injuries and wrongful death — young and old.

Gabriela has a passion for helping children and families.  If you or your child have been injured, Gabriela Sandoval & Associates, LLC will work to investigate and evaluate your case,  preserve evidence, notify the responsible parties as to our representation of your claims and identify your short and long-term care needs so that you have the financial means to rebuild and live your life to the fullest extent.

Gabriela Sandoval’s clients benefit not only from her experience and trainings but also from the experienced and reputable personal injury and wrongful death attorneys and expert witness teams she co-counsels with in personal injury and wrongful death cases.  Our litigation and expert witness team will assist you in obtaining the monetary award you need and the justice you deserve.

In her previous work, Gabriela has served as a Child & Family Investigator/ expert witness as well as a Decision-Maker in domestic relations cases throughout the Denver Metro area.  Due in large part to referrals, she has routinely managed a high case load and has had the privilege and responsibility to become highly selective about the cases she will accept in order to ensure high quality and personalized service.

Gabriela is a board certified Child Welfare Law Specialist (CWLS) and served as a Guardian ad Litem from 2007 to 2012 in the Denver Juvenile Court (District Court), representing the best interests of dependent and neglected children.  She has performed countless independent investigations and made as many recommendations to the court; the Department of Human Services, Child Protection; and parties to the case in the best interests of the children.  Gabriela’s experience and concentration in this area in the past has resulted in her ability to work effectively with high conflict families at each stage of litigation.  Her recommendations as CFI are thoughtful, creative and practical.  Her recommendations have covered a wide range of ages –  children as young as newborn and youth as old as 21 years.

In addition to providing recommendations for families engaged in high-conflict relationships and litigation, Gabriela also has experience crafting recommendations for families struggling with: domestic violence, physical abuse, emotional abuse, neglect, substance abuse, cognitive and developmental delays, dual-diagnosis, and sex abuse.  As a CFI, Gabriela works to create the best recommendation for your family that will serve in the children’s best interest.

Gabriela Sandoval has been recognized by the internationally known Animal Legal Defense Fund for her (now former) work on behalf of children and animals.  She has also contributed several legal articles to the Colorado Bar Association’s premier legal publication, The Colorado Lawyer.   Read a selection of them here: ALDF Attorney Spotlight Gabriela Sandoval, Animal Law, Breed Ban article, Pets and Domestic Violence and Child-friendly Courtrooms and Court Facility Dogs.
