Maha Kamal, Esq.

Maha was born in Aurora, Colorado and is everything Colorado. She graduated with honors from the International Baccalaureate program at Smoky Hill High School in 2003. She then went on to obtain her Bachelor of Arts in International Affairs from the University of Colorado at Boulder as well as her Juris Doctor (J.D.) from the University of Denver.

She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop and the American Humanist Association’s Humanist Legal Society. She is 2019 fellow of the Colorado Bar Association’s Leadership Training (COBALT) program, a member of the Continuing Legal and Judicial Education Committee of the Colorado Supreme Court, and represents the Denver Bar Association on the Colorado Board of Governors.

Maha is a polyglot – meaning, she speaks several languages, including English (her native tongue), Spanish, and Urdu/Hindi.

Maha has an extensive background in family law and primarily practices in this area. She has successfully represented her clients in the areas of:

  • Divorce, including complex financial matters, maintenance, and Separation Agreements
  • Parenting time, including relocation, modification, and Parenting Plans
  • Decision-making, including modification
  • Child Support, including arrears and retroactive modification
  • Foreign decree registrations
  • Pre and Post-Nuptial Agreements
  • Domestic Relationship Agreements
  • Mediation and settlement

In her spare time (when she has it!), Maha loves international travel, stand-up comedy, writing, and studio art. She is the author of The Book of BIG Questions, a children’s book for freethinking parents.

Through the Lighthouse Writer’s Workshop Book Project, she is also writing a (South Asian) sci-fi short story collection.


“Maha gives great advice in a down-to-earth way. It is refreshing to speak with a family law attorney like her and I highly recommend her services.”

“I was so thankful to have Maha on my side. She started each conversation by listening well and was able to recommend a strategy based on what she heard. She was always spot-on. I also felt she was advocating for my kids and being fair and realistic with me.”

“Maha was my divorce attorney this year. She is smart, kind, efficient, tenacious, and fearless. I’d put her up against any attorney from any big-name law firm any day of the week. She doesn’t dazzle you with unrealistic babble. She makes a plan with you and then works through the steps to get there – without wasting your time or money unnecessarily. She was my advocate and I trusted her. And we did very well at the end of negotiations.”
