Michael D. Liggett

Michael D. Liggett is a partner in the law firm of Liggett, Johnson & Goodman, p.c. and has been practicing law in Fort Collins since 1978. As a nearly life-long resident of Fort Collins, he has been committed to public services and the success of the community.

As a partner since 1977, Michael D. Liggett was drawn to practice law because of its unique blend of interpersonal skills and high-level critical thinking, and has remained enthusiastic because of the varied demands each client’s case requires. Earning his undergraduate degree at Colorado State University before receiving his J.D. from the University of Seattle School of Law, Michael brings the experience and local perspective to criminal defense, family law, civil and mediation cases.

When not practicing law, Michael enjoys his family, fly fishing, poetry, and involvement in local civic affairs.

What his clients say:

“Mike is an excellent lawyer and a wonderful human being. He helped me through my divorce with knowledge, skill, grace and compassion. With great efficiency and care he steered me in the right direction, gave me good advice and helped me avoid pitfalls. I highly recommend Mike if you need to end a difficult marriage and move on with a clear conscience.” ~Susanne
