I came to Colorado from western New York in 1971 (after a stint as a U.S. Merchant Marine). I came for a two week vacation and never went back. The mountains and the climate were more attractive than I could imagine and I realized I wanted to stay here. What I found most attractive, though, were the people. Their friendly and outgoing ways took me by surprise and I fell in love with them.
I worked in a variety of jobs while completing my degree at CU Denver: construction, school bus driver, mental health worker, waiter and bartender. It was in this last incarnation that I met my wife of 31 years. I completed my law degree in 1982 and worked for a small firm until going out on my own in 1984. In the process my family grew with four wonderful children. We moved to the Evergreen/Conifer area in 1991 and have been here ever since.
My practice is somewhat eclectic. I provide services in the areas of debt relief, real estate transactions, wills and probate and tax resolution. I get the most satisfaction out of helping my clients. Whether it's relieving the stress of paralyzing debt, completing a complicated real estate transaction or guiding a bereaved family through the death of a loved one, there is always the feeling of satisfaction knowing I have helped a fellow human being through a tough time.
I have offices in Evergreen and Lakewood, but I often meet people at their home or other convenient place when they can't get here. When necessary for hearings, I have traveled to Grand Junction, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins. I accept cases statewide.
My fees are reasonable and I can often quote a flat fee. I give everyone a free consultation. It would be my pleasure to serve your legal needs.
