Professional Experience

Colorado Attorney Raymond Chamberland has dedicated his entire professional life to serving the United States and taking care of people who need his legal advice and protection. Prior to founding Chamberland Law in Colorado Springs in 2005, Ray spent more than 25 years as a member of the U.S. military, first as a missile combat crew member and then later as a JAG at Patrick Air Force Base, where he handled thousands of military family law cases.

Ray later transferred to Vandenberg Air Force Base, where he was promoted to the position of Staff Judge Advocate, which is the military equivalent of a City Attorney position, and was in charge of the other JAGs on base. In addition to family law cases, Ray has also dealt with cases involving civil law, environmental law, and contracts. Prior to joining the U.S. Air Force, Ray was a volunteer fireman. After retiring from the US Air Force out of Vandenberg AFB in California, Ray and his wife Mary moved to Colorado and he founded Chamberland Law in downtown Colorado Springs. Ray loves practicing family law in Colorado because he now helps both civilian and military families get through what can sometimes be the most challenging times in their lives.

Client Reviews
"Ray did an excellent job representing me in my custody case involving my two children. He and his staff were genuinely interested in my case, they were responsive in a timely manner, and the attorney was well-prepared in court. We ended up with a good result and I will use his services again in the future should the need arise. I could not have done it on my own and I appreciate the excellent service he provides!" Jim
"He did such a great job during my divorce & custody battle with my ex-husband. Ray & Cindy are extremely responsive, helpful, accommodating and understanding of all situations. He was able to get me everything I wanted and I recommend him to everyone. In fact, I'm almost positive my ex husband even refers people to Ray for divorce and custody haha." Tina
"Ray and his staff did a great job on my divorce case! It's a tough situation to be in but Ray's advice was accurate and helpful and he did not sugar-coat anything. The chosen custody evaluator did a good job with his investigation as Ray said he would, and my concerns were always taken seriously by the attorney. He was prompt in answering my questions and did his best to keep my attorneys fees as low as possible. Together we achieved a good result and I would use his services again in the future." Richard
