In a divorce proceeding, with all the fear, worry and exhaustion, it’s only natural to want to get the process over and done with. But you need advocacy, efficiency and complete support. You also need to understand the needs of your children and how your decisions will affect every aspect of your life and future. That’s the value of having Anita Savage on your side, with her over 20 years of practice in family law and divorce, civil litigation, collaborative law and alternative dispute resolution.

Anita’s track record is one of helping clients reach the best agreement possible outside of court, so their money can be used for their family and children post-divorce – not on unnecessary litigation. But, if you have to go to court, she is a smart and tenacious advocate for you and your children.

A high achiever over her entire career, Anita is licensed to practice law in Texas, Colorado and Georgia. She earned a BA in Criminal Justice from the University of Toronto. In law school, she was a member of the National Dean’s List. She served as an associate attorney with the law firms of Moyer, Beal and Vranesic, Ruegsegger Thomas, and Gutterman, Griffiths & Powell, a preeminent family law firm. In 2005, Anita founded her own law firm, dedicating her entire practice to family law. She represents clients in both collaborative and traditional divorce cases, and is a professionally trained Mediator, Amicus attorney, and Parenting Facilitator, assisting families and the Court as a neutral professional.
