Tara represents clients on appeal and in postconviction proceedings.


Prior to becoming an attorney, Tara received her BA in International Relations and Spanish from Concordia College, Moorhead, MN and MPhil in the Theory and Practice of Human Rights from the University of Oslo, Faculty of Law. She then worked for the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights where, among other things, she managed a development program to strengthen human rights and democracy across South Africa.

    I worked with Tara Jorfald at the Denver District Attorney's office and found her to be agreeable, pleasant to work with, and above all committed to justice and to reaching the right result in every case. She is hardworking, fair, and honest, and a valuable addition to Colorado's legal community.
