Presently retired and only providing consulting services for attorneys and members of the regular public. I can steer you in the direction of a good attorney in the area of the law that you are seeking, but I have applied for "inactive" status because of physical disability and desire to pursue other career aspirations.
Former judge, prosecutor, and current attorney with 22 years of experience in Colorado. Always offered free initial consultations with clients. Concentrated on estate planning (wills, trusts, powers of attorney, etc.), business, civil litigation, domestic relations/divorce, criminal defense, and a variety of probate ssues. Also licensed in the State of Minnesota (inactive) and Washington, DC (inactive), as well as federal courts. Worked with clients on a slow pay/low pay basis and sliding scale basis.

Reciprocal - Stayed Suspension issued in MN, 2014
updated on 01/09/2015
This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state, or jurisdiction, also violated the rules for practicing law in Minnesota. Stayed suspension means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with certain requirements. The State also monitors the lawyer's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Christopher's comment: “This was the exact same situation as the Colorado incident and needed to be reported to the State of Minnesota, even though I am INACTIVE in MN. As such, it is NOT another ethical violation whatsoever. MN simply adopted the 2 years of probation ordered by Colorado and did NOT suspend my license. This is NOT an additional ethical violation. I have practiced for 22 years with no violations. I lectured a woman on road rage and the Ethics Committee in CO said I should have called the police instead.”
Suspension Stayed Placed on Probation issued in CO, 2014
updated on 03/28/2017
Suspension stayed means the attorney has been disciplined, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with probation requirements.
Christopher's comment: “This incident was based on activity that had nothing to do with the practice of law. A woman was endangering people in our local community by engaging in dangerous driving and "road rage" behavior. At a traffic light, I lectured her on the dangers of road rage. She then said that "road rage" simply does not exist. I brought up "road rage" cases that I was personally involved in as a pubic defender, judge, prosecutor, and private attorney. The attorney regulation counsel said such was improper.”
