Graham.Law family law associate Gina Byrd was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and attended the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. While at the U of M, she participated in mock trial, moot court and served on the law review editorial board as Articles Editor.
Gina began her legal career in 1997 as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Holly Kirby of the Tennessee Court of Appeals. She transitioned to civil litigation with a small but powerful law firm in Memphis, where she enhanced her civil litigation skills while representing clients and families whose lives were turned upside down by trauma.
In 2014, Gina relocated to Colorado Springs, where she spent many summers as a child. She later began a new pursuit of justice — this time for children — as a Guardian ad Litem here in El Paso County. Gina finds that her experience in child welfare law is extremely valuable in her current role at Graham.Law, and especially in child custody cases. Children have unique perspectives on adult dilemmas, and often their voices are not heard.
Gina has experienced divorce both as a child and as a parent, and knows the value of effective representation in domestic relations litigation. She relates to her clients on a personal level as one who has been through this process and come out on the other side a stronger and healthier person. She will guide you through the divorce procedure with care and skill.
Gina loves living in Colorado Springs with her husband, two children, and two dogs. She enjoys cycling, hiking and camping in our beautiful public lands.
