Complex Cases Require Experienced Lawyers

IT ONLY TOOK 1.7 SECONDS. The Ford Taurus was northbound at 65 mph. It lost control, crossed the median, ejected its driver, became airborne, then crashed into the windshield of a southbound HVAC service van.

Her blood test result was positive for alcohol. Felony charges were filed against her alleging careless driving causing death—aggravated by DUI. The wrongful death case on behalf of...

Colorado's new "Red Flag Law"

It doesn’t matter which side you take in the gun debate. Everybody wants the killing to stop. Red flag laws were proposed after the February 14, 2018 shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. These laws change the focus away from reaction to prevention. Colorado is one of 12 states to enact a red flag law since the Parkland shooting.

Justice For All

JUSTICE FOR ALL When I was a young girl growing up in Roanoke, Virginia, our class started each day with the Pledge of Allegiance. The Pledge ended with the words from which I drew inspiration: "Justice for All." Now, those words ring hollow for many Coloradans. Wealth inequality has been widely discussed as a political issue. Less attention, however, is paid to the ever-growing barriers to civil justice for low-income people trying to protect themselves and their families. Access to legal counsel is a growing national problem even though there...

For The Public Good

When my great-grandparents, and maybe yours, landed at Ellis Island and were given a new “American” name, they started out at the bottom of society. With the help of their community – people to teach them English, to help them get jobs, and to integrate into society, they took the first incremental steps toward success. Four generations later, I am (and maybe you are) lucky enough to be possessed of the benefit of that long-ago hand up. Lawyers hold themselves out as trusted advisors, passionate advocates, and public citizens with a special...
