About Me

Nick Fogel joined the firm in 2008. His practice is devoted to helping those who have been injured while working on the job and in the line of duty.


While at the University of Denver School of Law, Nick worked in several capacities including:

·        Judicial Law Clerk for the Office of Administrative Courts

·        Intern for the Office of the Denver District Attorney

In addition, Nick served as a Legislative Law Clerk and Registered Professional Lobbyist for Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, Schreck during the 2006 and 2007 Colorado legislative sessions.

In 2010, Nick was selected by Law Week Colorado as one of Colorado's Up-and-Coming Lawyers, a distinction given to attorneys who are at most in their sixth year of practice and have already accomplished tremendous things professionally and in the community.
