Bailey W. Mahoney is an experienced domestic relations attorney and partner with Harrington Brewster Mahoney Smits, P.C., who specializes in assisting families throughout the state of Colorado that are going through dissolution of marriage and child-related cases.
Prior to beginning her legal career, Bailey received both her MBA and undergraduate degrees in business administration from Oklahoma State University, during which, Bailey completed extensive coursework in finance and accounting.

Additionally, during law school, Bailey interned for the Honorable Angela R. Arkin in Douglas County District Court, where she acquired perspective on how judges handle the complexities of domestic relations cases. Bailey also clerked for the Honorable Dana Wakefield, a retired judge and then court-appointed Child and Family Investigator (CFI), where Bailey assisted in making recommendations to the Court regarding children involved in high conflict cases.
While Bailey excels in the area of written advocacy and is an experienced family law litigator who has successfully tried numerous complex and highly contentious disputes in a courtroom setting, Bailey is dedicated to helping parties resolve their divorce and family law disputes whenever possible outside of court via the negotiation of amicable settlement agreements. In addition to the traditional representation of clients in family law cases, Bailey offers unbundled representation services and is trained to represent clients in Collaborative Law cases (cases in which both parties commit up front to resolving their family law disputes outside of court in a cooperative manner).
