Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
16 year relationship, wherein the parties had two children, and the client mother was a victim of domestic violence. The parties were never formally married and opposing party refused to recognize they were common law married. Opposing party claimed our client was entitled to nothing and all possessions and money were his and his alone. We successfully litigated the common law marriage issue and client became entitled to maintenance, we were successful in getting client a permanent protection order, defended against opposing parties' appeal of the protection order ruling, and fought to uncover the truth from the lies.

How did you build a successful practice?
Commitment to knowing the law, studying human nature and strategy, and hiring only the best attorneys and paralegals in Colorado.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Lawyers with a vast knowledge of the law, attention to detail and strategic thinking.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Very. Every courtroom is different and judges have different tendencies and patterns.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
An overview of what our strategy of the case would be and what our expectations of the client would be.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
We provide a questionnaire for potential clients to fill out.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
We specialize in this area of the law. Most other lawyers have a rudimentary knowledge of this area and are a "jack of all trades."

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
We protect families and regularly save children.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Fly fishing and spending time with my family.
