Offering Comprehensive Legal Solutions to Clients in Northern Colorado
Our firm offers a diverse set of legal solutions to meet our clients' changing lives. Our attorneys have extensive experience and are regarded by their peers as leaders in a wide range of legal areas, including:
-Business law: We build long-term relationships with our business clients. From a business's inception, through its growth and even succession, we are prepared to meet your changing business needs.
-Real estate: We handle a variety of different real estate claims from disputes between commercial landlord and tenants to contract and association disputes.
-Personal injury: Individuals who have been hurt in an accident and families who have lost loved ones need strong advocates for them. Many do not realize the true cost of an injury until sometime later. We represent individuals who have suffered an injury in a variety of accidents, from those with motor vehicles to defective equipment or slippery surfaces.
-Insurance law: All too often insurance companies balk to pay a claim or offer less than what a claim is worth. The assumption is that most people are too afraid to stand up for what they are owed. We take on insurance companies and fight to make insurers pay their policyholders what they are due.
-Employment law: We represent both employees and employers in a variety of employment law matters from drafting employment law contracts and noncompete agreements to unpaid wages, unemployment and severance agreements.
-Oil and gas law: Mineral rights leases can be complicated. It takes a trained eye to understand them and someone who understands how oil and gas rights should be properly valued and paid. We offer comprehensive oil and gas law representation to individuals throughout northern Colorado and southern Wyoming.
-Estate planning and probate: We represent clients throughout their lives, helping them as their needs change. Our attorneys help clients with a variety of estate planning concerns from drafting an initial will, to preparing for long-term care or settling a loved one's estate through probate.
-Family law: We believe in practicing family law in a different way. We work with you to figure out where our energies should be spent to do the most good for you. Whether you are divorcing or looking at modifying an existing child custody arrangement, we will find a solution that works for you.
-Construction law: We represent clients in all aspects of construction law from drafting of construction contracts to handling mechanic's liens and defective construction claims.
-Criminal defense: With a former prosecutor on staff, we know how a case is built and we know where to look to attack it. Whether facing a traffic infraction, a DUI or a DWAI, we can help.
The diversity of our practice enables us to build long-term relationships with our clients. Our clients come to us initially because they need our expertise. They stay with us because they know how we work. They come to us with their other legal needs because they know we have the ability to help them meet their objectives.
