Mr. Maggard is in his 30th consecutive year of practicing law.  After graduating from the University of Denver School of Law in 1986, Mr. Maggard practiced in Denver and Summit County, Colorado for 7 years.  In 1993, the Maggard family moved to Wilmington, NC, primarily to care for elderly and ailing parents.  Following the demise of both parents, the Maggards returned to Colorado and established their home, and the existing law practice, in Douglas County, Colorado.

Throughout his career, Mr. Maggard's practice has emphasized litigation in the areas of family law, criminal law, juvenile law, and general civil litigation including personal injury and wrongful death.  While in North Carolina, Mr. Maggard gained distinction in the criminal law realm by participating in numerous capital murder cases, many of which involved the State seeking the death penalty.  Additionally, the North Carolina practice included domestic relation matters, civil litigation (including contract disputes, collection matters and insurance claims) and juvenile law.

As a father of four children, Mr. Maggard brings an abundance of life-experience to custody disputes in divorce proceedings.  Additionally, Mr. Maggard is a licensed foster parent and, in addition to his four children, has fostered other children.  Finally, Mr. Maggard has experienced divorce first-hand which has and does provide him with the ability to understand and relate to the trauma and fear couples experience through the entire dissolution process.  Beyond domestic relations matters, Mr. Maggard's current practice includes personal injury (including wrongful death), juvenile law (juvenile crime matters and dependency and neglect proceedings), civil litigation, appellate work and criminal matters ranging from traffic infractions to serious felonies. 

Mr. Maggard emphasizes amicable dispute resolution through aggressive representation but stands ready and willing to actively litigate any matter through trial (jury or non-jury) that cannot be resolved amicably.
