From Refugee To Renowned Attorney: One Of New Leaf Family’s Own Honored With Repeat Prestigious Legal Awards

A Colorado family law firm, dedicated to helping couples and families through some of life’s biggest transitions, is proud to recognize Selena S. Besirevic for her most recent accolades.

Golden, Colorado, June 3, 2024 — New Leaf Family, an expansive family law firm in Colorado, is pleased to announce that one of their own attorneys, Selena S. Besirevic, has been chosen for the Top 10 Under 40 Attorney Award for Colorado. This award comes from the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys, and it’s Selena’s second time receiving the accolade. Additionally, she was selected for the Super Lawyers® Rising Stars list for the 4th year in a row.

These achievements are even more impressive considering Selena’s unique background, but by any standard, receiving even one of these is a noteworthy accomplishment!

The National Academy of Family Law Attorneys was established in 2013 with the primary goal of discovering and recognizing the Top 10 Under 40 family law attorneys in each state for their hard work. To qualify for this award, candidates must be licensed, in good standing with their local bar association, and nominated by either a licensed practicing attorney or one of the NAFLA’s in-house staff researchers.

Similarly, Super Lawyers recognizes the top attorneys across a variety of practice areas and firm sizes, using a patented process of independent research and peer input. To qualify, candidates must be 40 years old or younger, or in practice for 10 years or less.

While these accolades highlight Selena’s exceptional skill and dedication to her clients, her path to becoming a highly regarded attorney is just as remarkable as the honors she’s earned.

Selena’s journey began when she came to the United States as a teenage refugee, fleeing the horrors of the Bosnian war with her family. As she settled into her new home, she couldn’t help but notice the big differences, especially when it came to how the law worked. But one thing didn’t change for her: feeling like she didn’t have a voice. Selena was determined to find one in her new country. This determination fueled her aspiration to pursue a legal career, driven by a desire to advocate for others without a voice, particularly children entangled in the complexities of divorce.

She has now been helping clients through some of the most difficult traumas of their life for over 12 years, and has made a difference in the lives of countless children and families. There are few attorneys as passionate about making a true, meaningful, positive impact as Ms. Besirevic  has shown herself to be (which these awards support!). The New Leaf Family team is extremely grateful to have her as part of their family, and is confident that the rest of her career will only make their firm continue to stand out as Colorado’s top choice for family law.

When asked about her most recent accolades, the divorce lawyer reflected thoughtfully. “I’ve gotten these awards before, but for some reason they mean so much more having earned them with New Leaf Family. Here, I’ve been able to focus on being the best attorney possible, and not on what I can earn for the firm.”

New Leaf Family is a growing family law firm based in Colorado. They pride themselves on guiding families through difficult transitions the right way, without inciting unnecessary conflict or costs.
