Our Focus: POSITIVE RESULTS THROUGH LITIGATION AND TRIAL
We don't advertise on billboards and we don't accept every case. We believe that clients deserve the utmost loyalty and honesty from their lawyer. We believe the practice of law requires a level of precision and analysis; a thorough understanding of the facts and the law; and the ability to articulate a position effectively and forcefully. We believe every client and every case deserves nothing less. From Fortune 500 companies to small business owners and individuals, we work with clients to achieve positive results through litigation and trial.
BUSINESS LITIGATION & TRIAL
We represent businesses, owners and shareholders in contract and tort claims in state and federal trial courts and in state and federal appellate courts. This includes actions to enforce contractual rights and duties, statutory claims and enforcement and collection of judgments.
We represent clients in appeals of civil matters before state and federal courts in Colorado and Florida. In addition, we work with lawyers on substantive legal briefs filed at the trial court and administrative hearing level.

Your business partner stole money from the company for her personal use. An employee emails confidential company information to his personal email so he can use it to start a competing company. A competitor hires away an employee and uses confidential company information stolen by the employee. The company bookkeeper intentionally issues additional paychecks in his name they haven’t earned.
Occasionally, a potential client calls me and asks if I would “just write a demand letter” to the recalcitrant company or person on the other side of a dispute. I don’t do this. When I’m hired to pursue a claim for a client, I will rarely send a demand letter before filing the lawsuit. The reason is simple: it’s a waste of time and frequently puts clients at a disadvantage.
In Colorado, any person or company that performs work or furnishes materials used in the construction, alteration or improvement of any home, structure or property may be entitled to a mechanic’s lien.
I’ve been a shareholder in a small business where we decided to part ways and dissolve the LLC. I’ve never been through a divorce. However, dissolving an LLC is probably similar – it can be contentious and fraught with disputes. Or, it can be an opportunity for those involved to realize it’s not working and[…]
Voluminous consumer complaints about abuses of telephone technology—for example, computerized calls dispatched to private homes— prompted Congress to pass the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 (TCPA), 47 U.S.C. § 227. Congress determined that federal legislation was needed because telemarketers, by operating interstate, were escaping state-law prohibitions on intrusive nuisance calls. The Act bans certain[…]
While most people today use a mortgage to purchase commercial and residential real estate, there is an anachronism still used today to buy real estate without a mortgage. It’s commonly referred to as a “contract for deed”, “installment land contract” or sometimes a “land sale contract.” The purpose of these real estate agreements is to[…]
There has been considerable litigation over the years regarding holding the owners of a company personally liable for the debts of the company even when the company is a properly established separate legal entity of a corporation or a limited liability company. These types of entities generally protect the owners from personal liability; however, when[…]
Non-compete provisions in employment contracts have historically been used to prevent executive-level employees from leaving a company and immediately competing with their former employer. In addition, non-compete agreements are frequently used when a business is sold to preserve the value of the business. Recently, there has been a national trend of companies attempting to prevent[…]
I have a very close friend that has suffered from multiple sclerosis for the past 23-years. Spending time with her, I have become acutely aware of the obstacles that the disabled encounter daily just trying to navigate through the grocery store or accomplish everyday tasks. The Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted with the noble[…]
A Fortune 500 company may have a sizeable legal department and a significant budget for legal expenditures.
