For more than two decades, my practice has focused on representation of corporate, governmental, and individual clients, in a variety of commercial and business matters at both the trial and appellate levels. Maintaining close, long-term relationships with my clients allows me to understand their goals from both the legal and business perspectives, to work cooperatively with them to structure their businesses and transactions to avoid disputes when possible, and to resolve them efficiently and effectively when necessary. I have also advised and represented attorneys in connection with various matters related to the formation and operation of law firms and legal ethics.
For several years, I have been recognized by U.S. News as among its Best Lawyers in America in the fields of Commercial Litigation and Construction Law. I have earned an AV (Preeminent) rating from Martindale based on its client and peer review process, and have been recognized informally by judges, arbitrators, and other counsel for my skill in examining witnesses and arguing cases at both the trial and appellate levels. I am licensed to practice in all state and federal courts in Colorado and have been a guest lecturer at the University of Colorado School of Law in the field of advanced and adaptive legal writing.
