By Christina Liu

Honorable Lance Timbreza is a district court judge with the 21st Judicial District of the Colorado State Judicial Branch in Mesa County, Colorado.

Can you give a brief summary of your career path prior to your appointment to the bench?

I started my practice at Dorsey & Whitney is Seattle. I wanted to move home to Colorado so I joined a five-person civil litigation firm in Grand Junction. I joined as an associate and became a partner after four years. I spent eight years there and left to join a domestic relations firm so I would have experience in civil litigation and domestic relations at Daniels Law Group, LLC.

I became as involved in the Mesa County Bar Association, Colorado Bar Association, and American Bar Association as I could to build a networks of friends and colleagues.
