read moreThe distinction between litigation and transactional work is often artificial. Business, contract, intellectual property, employment, and real estate litigation are almost always the result of poor drafting, insufficient investigation, or an incomplete negotiation. I prefer plain English over "Legalese." Plain English lowers costs, improves productivity, increases credibility, and reduces misunderstandings. I am also a proven TRIAL LAWYER. In 2012, I won a $4.2 million judgment (including punitive damages) for a client in a case involving breach of contract and interference with contract.
read moreI practice law in a customized and result-oriented manner. I understand that every client has their own personality, character, history, habits, and budget. An approach that fits one may be too slow, too expensive, or too disruptive for another. I want to understand your business, your goals, and your limitations so we can decide whether I am the best lawyer for you. I know many clients associate the hiring of lawyers with negative events in their lives. I cannot control the external factors that sometimes require clients to seek legal advice; what I can do is try my best make the legal processes as comfortable as possible.

read moreI believe the distinction between litigation and transactional work, made at many firms, is often artificial. An experienced contract law attorney based in Boulder, I know that contract litigation is almost always the result of poor drafting, an insufficient investigation, an incomplete negotiation or some combination of those. Often the dispute could have been avoided had the parties realized the importance of proper drafting of the contract and any related legal documents. If you or your organization face a legal issue and you are not sure whether it fits within my practice areas, please call me at (303) 638-3410.
Frequently asked questions
read moreThe purpose of this page is to answer frequently asked questions so you can decide whether I am the right lawyer for you. My answers are direct, and that's intentional. I don't want to waste your time or mine. I have been fortunate to do many things in my 37-year career. I have been an Air Force Judge Advocate, Special Asst. U.S. Attorney, attorney in private practice, prosecutor, and municipal judge. I served on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Municipal League and served six years on the Editorial Board of The Colorado Lawyer (including one as chairperson).
read moreI have conducted more than one hundred jury trials, but I have also gained expertise in areas of law that include contract law, business litigation, real estate litigation, boundary and access disputes, corporate veil issues, home inspection law, and plain English drafting. I enjoy working with other lawyers in cases where my experience and expertise may be useful. Other lawyers frequently consult with me or ask me to serve as co-counsel in cases involving these issues, and I have often used my knowledge of corporate veil law to help other lawyers collect debts owed to their clients and to defend attempts to pierce the corporate veil.
