“My goal as a family law paralegal is to help each client successfully navigate one of the most difficult challenges in their lives which they may ever face, and to do so with empathy, compassion, clear communication and integrity.”
Destiny Owens has been employed as a Family Law paralegal for many years. Over time she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area of the law. Her experience includes a special emphasis in the areas of divorce and custody. She is also a highly skilled office manager. Destiny earned her Associate of Arts Degree in Paralegal studies in 2003 and immediately began her career as a family law paralegal. Due to interest in and dedication to her clients, she obtained a second Associate of Arts degree in the field of psychology in 2009.
Destiny strives to treat every client with compassion and understanding. Effective and clear communication with others is very important to her. Former President Theodore Roosevelt’s comment, “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care,” is a guiding force in both her personal and professional life. While Destiny has extensive experience with large corporate caseloads, her true passion is serving a limited number of family law clients in a small firm setting. She prefers working in an environment where each client is appreciated for their unique qualities, and not simply viewed as just another number within a large client caseload.
These ideals ultimately led her to Littman Family Law and Mediation Services. The firm’s commitment to valuing each and every client as a unique person, the firm’s unwavering commitment to ethical representation, coupled with compassion, and respect for the families that they serve, perfectly aligned with Destiny’s values. She appreciates the efforts both Whitney and David devote to helping clients find legal solutions which best fit their individual situations instead of quickly advocating aggressive litigation as the only solution to their legal issues. While both attorneys are highly competent litigators, when appropriate, they work with their clients to avoid divisive and costly courtroom battles.
In the past, Destiny was a passionate advocate for foster care and adoption and was also a Colorado foster parent until she and her former husband at the time moved to Georgia with their two sons to run a group home. At the group home, they worked with at-risk teens and adolescents. However, after several years of employment in this role, they returned to Colorado to be closer to family members and friends.
Destiny has two sons, ages 21 and 17, and very much enjoys spending time with them whenever possible. When she is not working, you can often find her visiting nearby parks and walking trails with her sons. She finds the natural beauty of Colorado inspirational. Her hobbies also include thrifting, antiquing, cooking, caring for her rapidly expanding plant collection, as well as reading up on non-fiction topics relating to history and current affairs.
Destiny enjoys cooking all types of foods but has a particular knack for spicy, authentic Mexican meals. She first learned to prepare these dishes after her family’s move to New Mexico during her childhood. Neighbors and extended family members encouraged her to sample and learn their recipes. Additionally, Destiny’s mother is a superb cook whose passion for cooking many different types of recipes has fueled Destiny’s interest in the preparation of fresh original dishes.
