Background:

I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Finance from Regis University in 2005 before I enrolled in law school. I received my Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2009. While in law school, I received real world trial experience by interning with the Office of the Denver District Attorney, the Rocky Mountain Children’s Law Center, and competing in various moot court competitions both national and international. In addition, I was elected President of the Jewish Law Students Association and Secretary of the Student Trial Lawyers Association. Recently, I have served as a bar exam tutor and grader.


After law school, I felt called to military service for our country, so I commissioned as a field artillery officer in the United States Army. During a deployment to Afghanistan, I led my platoon on over 100 combat missions, bringing home safely all of the soldiers under my command. After five years in the Army, I entered the business world where I worked as a consultant for an elite printing and packaging company named Belmark, Inc. for five years, working with some of the largest companies in the country.

Following my time with Belmark, Inc., I worked as a family law attorney for O'Neil Wysocki for short period of time. I ultimately found that my true legal passions were in estate planning and business law. As a result, I started my own value-based law firm focusing on estate planning and business law needs. My law firm seeks to provide our clients with the highest levels of quality, service, and care.

You can stop looking for an estate planner
If you want things done right and peace of mind, the Jaime is the person you need to talk to. He is thorough, thoughtful and kind when it comes to the sometimes difficult subject of estate planning.

Takes the time to explain prior to committing
I want to say he is very detailed and goes over the entire process for trust/ will. He’s up front about cost and explains how this benefits your family.

Unparalleled Character
Having worked with Jaime for several years; I can not name a single person with his level of integrity and moral fiber. Jaime is firm in his commitments and his word is worth it's weight in gold. I have routinely sought Jaime's guidance and advice to navigate morally ambiguous situations. If all lawyers had half the integrity of Jaime, our legal system would be in a much better place.

Sharp and Caring Attorney
My wife and I hired on Jaime to prepare our documents. Jaime takes a trust approach and is a firm believer in planning. As my attorney, he shoots it to me straight. You will find an exceptional value in appointing him to sort out your final paperwork. He's going to advise you to do the work on the friend end to avoid the pain of litigation on the back-end, do this, take his advice.

A Great Value Proposition
As a financial adviser, I interact with many attorneys while helping people plan their estates and structure their trusts. When we refer a family, we want to be sure they are getting exceptional service from a lawyer with sterling credentials. That is what you get with Jaime Papa; education, credentials, experience, and lots of great Army stories. What is not to like? I have been impressed with his thoroughness and overall approach, so I encourage you to give him a ring.

Top Notch Attorney
In my profession I consult with attorney's on a regular basis, and it is truly hard to find one that is not only knowledgeable but also compassionate about what they do. I've consulted with Jaime on multiple occasions and each time I am impressed with his character and his drive to serve his clients. The world of estate planning and business planning is complex, with many things in constant flux, but Jaime is well versed in both of these fields.. and will ensure that you, your family and your business are well protected.

A Cut Above the Rest for the Business Owner
In my profession I interact with attorneys fairly regularly, generally on the behalf of my clients. It is rare to find attorneys who are truly committed to creating a lasting professional relationship; one that is centered on being proactive, not reactive. The work Jamie does to not only cover up his clients, but to continuously educate, advise and invest back into these business owners/individuals, is peerless. Regardless of your business size, he presents a real opportunity to not only protect your brand, but secure a legal advisor that is committed to expanding presence and refining your business model. If your interested in making a real investment in your company, look no further - Jaime's your guy.

Fantastic Lawyer
I have worked with Jaime on a number of challenging and complex legal matters - both personally and professionally. When I was facing a particularly difficult situation, Jaime provided me with the counsel I needed to get through it. I can say firsthand that Jaime is a zealous advocate, extremely knowledgeable, and passionate about providing the best possible legal advice. Anytime I need legal advice my first call is always to Jaime. If you need legal help, give him a call - you won’t regret it.

I recommend anyone to this Mrs.Papa's
I can't explain how blessed I am to have him as my lawyer he believed in my case when no one would. He very much about his client cases and getting justice. First time I talked to him I knew he was the lawyer for me. I'm so blessed to have him I recommend him to anyone

Places his client’s interests above his own
I engaged Jaime to help with an unconventional business arrangement. He explored every possibility in counseling me on this matter. He cared more about me being protected than charging me for all the tine he put into the engagement. That left feeling like I was I the hands of someone I could really trust!

He provided us with options for our estate plan and really helped protect my family from some potential issues. I now have the peace of mind to know that my family is taken care of even when I’m gone. He went above and beyond for us.

He makes practicing law a joy, and I recommend him without reservation."
