The Firm

Straight answers from experienced personal injury attorneys

Our firm is not “Big Law” by choice – we have four lawyers, each of whom has earned the position of partner after years of hard work and success for our clients. We pride ourselves on maximizing results for our clients, which is how we measure our firm’s success and explains the longevity of our working relationships. We recognize that working in a personal, collaborative approach with our clients best achieves their goals.

For over 30 years, we have been dedicated to helping seriously injured victims and restrict our practice to those cases. Unlike many firms who market themselves as personal injury firms, we do not have a general practice and do not handle workers’ compensation claims, DUI matters or benefit claims. We do help clients with claims for catastrophic injuries, and we do it with a great deal of talent and skill. 

Each attorney is an active volunteer within our community and, as a firm, we are proud to sponsor Rocky Mountain PBS and Colorado Public Radio.

You will find our entire firm shown below, and when you call our office you will be speaking directly with one of us, not an answering service. The first contact with a lawyer may be uncomfortable, but we welcome the chance to discuss your matter with you and answer your questions.
