About me

I focus my practice on Colorado Workers’ Compensation claims and cases involving personal injury. I have  more than 29 years experience in the field and I have handled thousands of claims on behalf of my clients.  I am proud to be named a National Trial Lawyers Top 100 Attorney. I currently sit on the Board of Directors of the Workers’ Compensation Education Association.
