Johanna E. Blumenthal
“No two cases are the same because each client is unique, with different needs and experiences.”
In 2019, Johanna Blumenthal joined the Plog & Stein, P.C. legal team as an associate attorney in our Broomfield, Colorado office. Johanna comes to the firm with not only strong family law experience, but a diverse legal and professional background. With Plog & Stein, her practice areas include divorce (both complex and simple), child custody, parenting time and modifications, child support, protection orders, and the full array of family law issues. In her practice of family law, Ms. Blumenthal works from a client-centered perspective, focusing on the goals and needs of each client, with the understanding that the details of each case matter. Whether dealing with settlement negotiations or litigating a case, Johanna guides her clients through the legal process in a professional and effective manner, while striving to help them meet their resolution goals.
When meeting with new clients, Johanna’s approach involves first listening to the important details of the client’s situation and making sure there is a clear understanding of the client’s objective. From there, she assists clients by providing a realistic assessment of their rights and options, including helping them determine whether their outcomes are more likely achieved in the courtroom or through negotiations. Johanna is a firm believer in the notion that a fair and appropriate settlement, which meets the client’s core goals, is likely going to be a more workable resolution than just leaving things up to a judge, who does not have a vested interest in the outcome. Of course, she also recognizes that not all cases can, or will, settle. As such, she is also ready to use her courtroom experience to litigate both complex and simple divorce and child custody matters.
Johanna handles cases throughout the Denver metropolitan area and Colorado, though her main practice locations include Adams, Boulder, Broomfield, Jefferson, and Denver Counties.
Prior to focusing her career on family law, Johanna worked for a securities law firm, focusing on SEC filings and due diligence for small corporations. She also worked with various start-ups, providing legal assistance related to burgeoning business endeavors. With an inherent desire to help others, she spent time in 2013-14 working with Boulder County Legal Services, providing legal representation to those in need. Since 2015, Johanna has also served as an adjunct professor for the Regis University College of Computing and Information Sciences, having taught courses in ethics leadership in computer science and legal basics of cyber security. Ms. Blumenthal’s diverse professional background provides her with the tools to look at cases from multiple perspectives when assessing and formulating strategies.
Johanna is a long-time Colorado resident and has called the Broomfield area home for years. After attending Broomfield High School, she only needed to travel a short distance west on U.S. 36 to gain her undergraduate and law school degrees at C.U. Boulder. Her love of Colorado has kept her here for the majority of her life. Aside from her intellectual and professional endeavors, she loves being outside and takes advantage of the many activities Colorado has to offer, including hiking, biking, or simply going for walks with her dog, Penny.
With her legal skills, insights, and work ethic, we believe Ms. Blumenthal is a valuable asset to both Plog & Stein and our clients. Contact us online to schedule a consultation with Johanna, or call us at 303-781-0322.
