Lee Warkentine began his legal career with the Boulder law firm of Williams, Trine & Greenstein. At Williams, Trine & Greenstein, Mr. Warkentine honed his adroit legal skills working closely with the firm's esteemed partner, Charles E. Williams. Together, Mr. Warkentine and Mr. Williams successfully litigated the landmark case of In re the Marriage of Graham, 574 P.2d 75 (Colo. S. Ct. 1978), which established the legal principle that the contribution of one spouse in providing financial support while the other spouse acquires an education is a relevant factor to be considered by a trial court in determining the issues of property division and maintenance. During the appellate process, Mr. Warkentine argued the case before the Colorado Supreme Court.
