William L. Hunnicutt



After stints of military service, cross-country trucking and graduate studies in philosophy, Bill Hunnicutt found himself practicing divorce law in 1977. He has no plans to stop. In recent years, he has divided his practice approximately equally between advocacy for a client and third-party neutral service as a divorce mediator, arbitrator and court-appointed special master. With the exception of a brief foray into securities fraud and accountant malpractice litigation in the mid-1980s, he has devoted his entire legal career exclusively to assisting in the difficult and complex process of divorce.

Bill has lectured on family law financial issues and alternative dispute resolution in law schools and seminars throughout Colorado and as far away as the states of Washington and New York. He has been a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers since 1988, acknowledged continually in Best Lawyers in America since 1987, and as a “Super Lawyer” since that designation came to Colorado in 2006. He is honored to be one of 100 divorce lawyers in the United States enjoying the collegiality of the American College of Family Trial Lawyers.
