I have been practicing law for over 32 years. I specialize in family law and criminal defense matters because these are the areas of law that I enjoy most and a majority of my clients receive a significant return on their investment in my services. Additionally, by limiting myself to these areas I am better able to focus on changes in the law to maintain my edge.
My family law practice includes representing clients on divorce, legal separation, custody, parenting time, visitation, child support, spousal maintenance and alimony, equitable division of the marital estate, and division of attorney fees. I enjoy family law because it enables me to help my clients to correct their living situation by obtaining appropriate orders that are in their own, and/or their children’s, best interest. These orders may include support orders that allow the parties to pay their monthly living expenses. This way my clients are able to overcome what can be a devastating transition in their lives.
My criminal law practice includes defending clients in traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases. I enjoy my criminal defense practice because it allows me to defend the innocent who have been accused of a crime and/or enables me to help reduce the exposure of individuals who may have made a mistake so that they can secure a second chance.
In the past I have represented clients in medical malpractice cases and Plaintiff’s personal injury matters. In one calendar year I was responsible for recovering over one million dollars to compensate my clients for their injuries. I have also successfully represented clients on appeal in several published and unpublished decisions before the Colorado Supreme Court and the Colorado Court of Appeals.
