My law journey began after filing for my divorce. Little did I know the difficulty and struggle the next decade would bring. I immediately realized that there was a shortage of lawyers who had experienced what I was experiencing. Finding the right help seemed impossible. So, I thought why not, and went to law school myself. I was fortunate enough to recieve a scholarship from the University of Denver Strum College of Law.
I spent the next several years learning all I could. I spent time as President of the Children's Legal Advocacy group. I was part of a clinic at the Rocky Mountain Children's Legal Center. I completed an internship at the Jefferson County Public Defender's office and spent three years as an Editor at the Transportation Law Journal. I graduated from the University of Denver Strum College of Law in 2006.
I've learned several things from my journey that I try to apply in my own practice. First, always give people a realistic expectation of what they can expect from the law. Secondly, a lawyer who believes in you and your cause is invaluable. Next, I learned there were a few areas of law that are often overlooked, but can have long reaching consequences if not handled properly.
I’m really enjoyed practicing over the years. The past several, I’ve represented people from all over Colorado in their divorce, child support, and modification of parenting time cases. I am one of the “small town” attorneys that has a state-wide clientele. My social security practice has been just as rewarding. I’ve been fortunate enough to win over a million dollars in past benefits for social security clients in the last few years alone. I’ve had many clients win despite losing several times over using big law firms you see advertising on TV. I have client’s from all over the United States. This may contribute most to my five star rating on Facebook. I have also added criminal law to my practice. At this time, due to the overwhelming demand, I am only taking misdemeanor cases.
Lastly, I am proud to say I am licensed to practice in Colorado, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, in Federal Court in the District of Colorado, before the Veterans Administration, and in in front of the Social Security Admistration. I am proud to be a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claimant’s Representatives, the National Association of Defense Lawyers, the American Bar Association, and the Colorado Bar Association.
