Robin Lutz Beattie is a Partner in the Lakewood firm of Polidori, Franklin, Monahan & Beattie, LLC.

Ms. Beattie graduated from the University of Michigan with honors in 1993. After three years working as a paralegal in family law, Ms. Beattie attended law school at the University of Colorado School of Law, where she graduated with highest honors (Order of the Coif) in 2002.

Although Ms. Beattie practiced civil litigation for several years, she has focused exclusively on family law for over a decade, and finds this field to be both challenging and meaningful. Ms. Beattie wrote the chapter on Spousal Maintenance for The Practitioner’s Guide to Colorado Domestic Relations Law and co-wrote an article for the January 2009 Colorado Lawyer: “Postsecondary Education Expenses After Chalat: Paying College Expenses After Divorce.” She has also presented lectures on many family law topics, ranging from jurisdiction to the drafting of Separation Agreements to the impeachment of valuation experts. In 2015, she co-chaired the 2015 Family Law Institute in Vail.
