Firm Overview

I am the Senior Partner and owner of the Gasper Law Group. I began my solo practice in 1999 after having spent over 25 years in the Colorado Springs area and having been an executive with a major insurance company. I was determined to provide Colorado citizens with affordable and competent legal representation in the area of Criminal Defense and Divorce and Family Law. Insomuch as Colorado Springs is a city with many key military installations, I decided to provide major discounts to the men and women who serve our country and are facing hardships and legal issues.
Allen C. Gasper, Attorney P.C. expanded in 2008 to form the Gasper Law Group; adding four attorneys, three paralegals, and a full time investigator.

The Gasper Law Group specializes in Criminal Defense, Divorce & Family Law and Bankruptcy. The firm has a philosophy of "helping people first" and prides itself on its expertise in the above areas of law; providing excellent representation without burdening its clients with exorbitant fees. Affordable retainers and no-interest payment plans allow our firm's clients to enjoy the best in representation for their Criminal or Divorce & Family issue. The firm truly focuses on taking the worry away from clients on how they are going to afford an attorney and putting that focus back on their matter. Attorneys will never talk fees ... only the client's matter.

Example cases

I have argued successfully in front of the Colorado Supreme Court on a case involving criminal sentence guidelines; the outcome of which required the Legislature to change the state's sentencing guidelines.

Additionally, I have filed appeals in several post-conviction sex cases resulting the reversal of what amounted to life sentences and the eventual release of my clients.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Again, the desire to help folks out who needed it the most. People who are experiencing trauma in their lives and need someone who understands their plight and can assist when others will not.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

Legal issues and the system itself can be extremely complicated. It is not unlike surgery where a patient wants to have confidence that his surgeon is excellent in his field, is experienced in the type of surgery, has the tools and the facility to perform the surgery with the best chance of a positive outcome, but doesn't necessarily want to know what size blade will be used, which tendons will be cut, and what the tasks of all the assistants will be during surgery. Having clients that understand the risks, who understand the need for expert help, and who are trusting of that help is important. As with the doctor - patient relationship, educating the client on what to expect and how to best take care of oneself pre and post surgery is very important. Educating the client on the basics of what needs to be done and what outcome to expect is paramount. However, attempting to pass on years of education and experience to a client can often times create more confusion than resolution.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

Understanding the client's perspective is critical to targeting a resolution that will be in the client's best interest. I always encourage clients to give us their input and thoughts on a matter; particularly in the Divorce and Family area when emotions are running at their maximum. Knowing the client's desired outcome and understanding what the client feels about his or her situation is part of the compassion that is required when servicing clients in the areas of Criminal Defense and Divorce and Family Law.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?
