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.


Back to School Safety

It’s back to school time, which means we’re sharing the road with young pedestrians, young cyclists and school buses, more than any other time of the year. Safety for school aged children requires total awareness from drivers and an understanding of designated school zones. Sharing the road with young students, means sharing the road with school busses. There are important rules and tips that we can all follow to ensure safety on the road for young commuters.


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...


Texting and Driving

In 2017, 3,166 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving drivers who were texting while driving. That total rose to 4,637 people in 2018.

Most would argue that texting and driving is an issue primarily amongst teenage/younger drivers, but according to a poll by teensafe.com, 77% of adults believe they can easily manage texting while driving, while 55% of teens feel the same....

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...


Dangers of Running Red Lights While Driving

Red lights are designed to properly manage traffic and keep drivers and pedestrians safe. Most drivers learn about red lights and stop signs before they ever step behind the wheel and typically adhere to the rules of red lights while driving. Those who don’t follow the rules, typically cause serious accidents with severe injuries. By disregarding red traffic lights while driving, the driver is putting their life and the lives of others at risk.
