Practice Areas

I took this oath – I respect and honor it daily:

I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Colorado;  I will maintain the respect due to Courts and judicial officers;  I will employ only such means as are consistent with truth and honor;  I will treat all persons whom I encounter through my practice of law with fairness, courtesy, respect and honesty; I will use my knowledge of the law for the betterment of society and the improvement of the legal system; I will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed; I will at all times faithfully and diligently adhere to the Colorado Rules of Professional Conduct.

BANKRUPTCY

Bankruptcy is my specialty and accounts for the majority of my work. I handle both Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings. I truly enjoy helping folks get things back on track. Bankruptcy can be an excellent option in sweeping clean the past and affording you a fresh start. You have my word that I operate from a place of empathy – I will never, ever judge you.

CRIMINAL DEFENSE

We’ve all made mistakes, and with a little help from our friends, family, and counsel, things ultimately turn for the better. As I’ve said, I will never, ever judge you. It is particularly important to have someone advocating for you at that temporary moment in time when it seems like the world is against you. I enjoy being this person – you can rely and confide in me.

CONTRACTS & AGREEMENTS

If you are asked to sign a contract, or you need one drafted, it is a good idea to have help. In both my practice and life, I’ve encountered a wide variety of agreements. I’ve been on both sides of matters and know what to look for. Too often, folks end up in my office after they’ve already entered into a bad deal. For a modest cost upfront, save yourself from what can become immense expense and hassle.

REAL ESTATE & LEASES

I’ve lived several lives and worn many hats; one of them, for quite some time, was in the mortgage and real state business. I’ve originated numerous loans, bought and sold several homes, and managed investment properties for myself and others. If you are considering a for-sale-by-owner, whether as a buyer or seller, or you need help with an eviction or other tenancy matter, as a landlord or tenant, I am a good resource.

PROBATE

Do you need help with an estate? Have you been nominated personal representative and have no idea how to proceed? I can guide you without you having to pay the exorbitant fees other lawyers typically charge. Save your money, don’t be fooled into thinking you need some high-priced Brooks Brothers barrister. You don’t.
