10.0Nathan F. J. Bucar

Regardless of the unique issues involved, Nate believes that meticulous preparation, zealous advocacy, and a strong commitment to his clients’ concerns and goals are essential to every family law case.

Nathan F. J. Bucar is a founding shareholder of Cage Bucar Lewis, LLC.  Nate began his legal career as an attorney in New York, practicing primarily in family law, while also handling business matters and contract disputes.  After moving to Colorado, he has focused his career exclusively on the practice of family law, including divorce and legal separation, allocation of parental responsibility (custody) actions, child support and spousal support modifications, paternity and juvenile actions, mediation, and appeals. Nate specializes in litigating and mediating cases with complicated financial issues, high asset divorces, and child custody and parenting time disputes.


Nate prides himself on providing his clients honest counsel and thorough legal analysis, so they are able to make informed decisions concerning their case. Nate is also a strong believer that, in most cases, the best outcome is achieved when parties are able to resolve their disputes through an amicable settlement that allows them to dictate the direction of their lives and determine what is best for their children. However, settlement is not always attainable, and Nate is also an experienced litigator who will not hesitate to advocate for his clients in the courtroom.

Jamie, Nate and Kate were SO helpful through every facet of my divorce. Things were languishing for a long time, but as soon as I sat down with them they got everything on track. I should have contacted them sooner, highly recommend this team!
