About Me

 Our plea to the patron of lawyers, St. Thomas More, guides us daily. We ask, in pursuit of our profession, that:


I may be able in argument, accurate in analysis, keen in study, correct in conclusion, loyal to clients, honest with all, courteous to adversaries, trustworthy with confidences, courageous in court.


So in May 2012, with these words in mind, longtime Aspen attorney Matt Ferguson founded his own law firm in downtown Aspen, CO. The Matthew C. Ferguson Law Firm is a preeminent Aspen law office with great rankings and perfect client and judge ratings. But adherence to these words is our pursuit. Matt saw the need for not only a new and nimble law firm on Colorado’s Western Slope, but a firm that was first and foremost imbued in the tradition of great lawyers and cases, the drama of a trial or the majesty of a landmark civil rights argument. We believe that modern legal transactions also need and deserve the same sense of honor and excellence. As Colorado attorneys, we represent clients in many district courts and our federal courts. High-profile individuals, entrepreneurs, and major corporations are proud to be our clients. Every small business will be treated as if it is the giant that we know it to be. Although our reach in Colorado is broad, representing and getting to know our own neighbors and communities in the Roaring Fork and Vail valleys is a privilege and joy. We have local, regional, and national clients, and we love nothing better than clients dropping into our beautiful new Aspen law offices. You are always welcome to discuss a legal matter or just to reminisce about an old case or a great deal you made. If we’re busy, we will always get back to you.
