Priscila BarberAssociate Attorney
Priscila has taught as an adjunct professor in higher education for over five years as well as practicing law. She sees the legal field as not merely a career, but as a vocation – a life purpose to serve the Colorado community. She served as an adjunct professor in the Helms School of Government at Liberty University (LU) teaching Constitutional Government and Free Enterprise, Logic and Legal Reasoning, Constitutional Criminal Procedure, Criminal Justice Research and Writing, Criminal Justice Report Writing, and Criminal Justice Integration.
Priscila has worked extensively with families and government agencies through Adult Protective Services and Child Protective Services as a Guardian Ad Litem. The cases that she managed involved cross-aisle collaboration for the purpose of the Respondent’s best interest, which often supported family members and interested parties. In addition to her role as an advocate for her client’s best interests, she also educated the court on who and why the Respondent needed guardianship/conservatorship services.
Before becoming an attorney, Priscila served for two years as a Communications Director for a mission organization in Brazil, working in underserved inner-city schools to create a relational bridge with local churches. She and her husband coordinated the work of several missionary teams, training them in the organization’s distinctives and mission strategy, and spreading the organization’s teachings and values in the community.
Priscila’s interdisciplinary educational background and life-experience have uniquely equipped her to bring service as an integral part of her approach to being an attorney. Her J.D. and Bachelor’s in Spanish and Portuguese Literature has prepared her to care deeply about communication, which she sees as the ultimate mode by which we connect with one another. Priscila is passionate about helping clients not only overcome current obstacles but counseling them for future success.
Priscila and her husband have three children and celebrate their multicultural and multilingual household, where Priscila’s native Portuguese predominates, and where Spanish and English are also spoken. She and her family are delighted to be returning home to Colorado.
