About me

Attorney at Law
Thomas J. Braham grew up in Northbrook, IL, just north of Chicago. He earned a full-ride Evans Scholarship to The University of Colorado- Boulder,  where he studied English Literature.  After opening and running Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Shops north of Chicago, a zoning variance dispute led to law school.  Thomas actively contributed to his Moot Court Program, traveled with the team to Dallas for a National Competition, and worked at the law library while attending Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan.  His final 10 law school credits were earned in a ABA Externship while working and researching at The Colorado Supreme Court Library.  While studying for the Colorado Bar Examination, he law clerked in Adams County Court, for Judge Sabino Romano.  After his clerkship, he worked for a high-volume downtown Denver Bankruptcy Firm, and at another small boutique bankruptcy law firm, before realizing that the best legal partner for him was Thomas J. Braham! Thomas has rock climbed throughout the west from big walls in Yosemite, the Grand Teton, and ice routes in Ouray, but his favorite climbs are in this backyard here in Colorado.  On his free time Thomas loves to read, and met his wife while interning and working the research desk at Colorado Supreme Court Law Library.
