Rhonda M. Sutor, Esq. is a Denver attorney practicing exclusively in family law cases including dissolution of marriage, allocation of parental responsibilities, child support, child custody, and post-decree modification cases. Rhonda began her legal career as a prosecutor at the Adam’s County District Attorney’s Office, where she gained invaluable courtroom experience and trial skills. Rhonda switched from the District Attorney’s Office when she realized that she wanted to work with individual clients to help them effectively resolve disputes, while protecting their individual rights and interests. She is especially passionate about advocating on behalf of domestic violence victims, and her clients often appreciate her empathic approach combined with fierce advocacy. Her ultimate goal is to help people reach a fresh start, while keeping strategies child-focused so as to mitigate any trauma.
Originally from Edmond, Oklahoma, Rhonda attended the University of Colorado School of Law where she was on the National Mock Trial Team and a recipient of the Leaders in Law and Community Scholarship. During her time in law school, Rhonda clerked for Judge Furman on the Colorado Court of Appeals, even assisting in proposed modifications to the Indian Child Welfare Act. Prior to attending law school, Rhonda earned a dual bachelor’s degree in English and Asian Studies (with a focus on Mandarin language), graduating cum laude from Rice University.
Rhonda is passionate about helping parties find effective mediators to mitigate disputes, as she always starts a case with amicability, if possible, especially if there are children involved. However, Rhonda can quickly transition to a fierce advocate when appropriate.
Rhonda is a board member of the Mediation Association of Colorado, a member of the Colorado Women’s Bar Association, Junior League, and a volunteer for Project Safeguard and the Arapahoe County Pro Se Clinic. In her free time, she throws pottery, wood burns charcuterie boards, and enjoys spending time with her niece and nephews, Ryder, Harper and Luke.
