She is now known as one of the newest associates in the family law department at Black & Graham, P.C. in Colorado Springs, Colorado, but to Mariah Dylla Gardiner, a lot has led up to her current position. Over the years, Mariah has proven to be a tireless advocate for her clients. These days, she can point to plenty of trial experience, but she also seems to thrive when confronted with the most challenging cases possible. Mariah tries to bring the most diligence to every case by using her hard-earned skills and knowledge, and her ability to analyze every aspect of every case usually brings the best results possible for her clients.

More than anything, Mariah Dylla Gardiner’s ability to apply a creative approach to every case means she can deal with any situation. She has a lot of experience in areas other than the law, and that seems to have imbued her with a high level of common sense. For example, she once curated an oral history museum exhibit designed to tell the story of underground uranium miners in northwest New Mexico. She interviewed miners and used their own words to tell the story in the context of the Cold War, when the government and contractors concealed hazards and delayed the implementation of safety regulations until the U.S. nuclear arsenal was complete.

That experience has combined with her strong education to give Mariah Dylla gardiner the ability to think beyond the legal details. Her education started with an undergraduate degree in French from Portland State University, cum laude, which means she is now fluent in French. She then went on to earn her Juris Doctor (law degree) from the University of Utah, and their S.J. Quinney College of Law.
