Sarah Palin has hired Alaska lawyer Lori Colbert, and husband Todd Palin has hired Alaska layer Kimberlee Colbo, as they move forward in their divorce proceedings.
Colbert is a lifelong Alaskan who graduated from Claremont McKenna College with a degree in political science, and earned her law degree at Willamette University College of Law. She has practiced law in Alaska for more than 20 years. Family law is one of her specialties.
Colbo graduated from the University of Washington School of Law and represents clients in matters involving all aspects of insurance defense, including bad faith and coverage, manufacturers and retailers in product liability. She represents individuals involved in divorces and child custody disputes.
The case has been classified confidential, which means access to case files are limited to Sarah and Todd Palin, their attorneys, and court personnel. It’s a very rare situation but there is a minor involved, and the judge may have decided to protect the child from the adverse experience of the media circus.
