  • James H. Chalat

    I endorse Tom Overton and highly recommend him to individuals and organizations in need of competent, talented and thoughtful trial counsel. I have consulted with Tom on cases, referred matters to him, and I have worked as an expert witness on a case in which Tom was counsel of record. Tom is board certified civil trial lawyer. He is recognized in the Bar Register, and he is consistently rated by "Super Lawyers" as one of the top fifty lawyers in Colorado. He is an excellent trial lawyer who also has impeccable judgment and common sense. Tom has the skills, talent, and knowledge to try complicated cases. But, he also has the judgment and perception to know when his client should consider alternative resolutions to the matter. Lawyers often submit their personal matters to Tom, and this is a good measure of Tom's standing in the legal community.
