Doug Holden -  Accomplished attorney:  Business, Estate Planning, Elder Law, Probate, Special Needs, Guardian and Conservator.  He is a husband, father, lawyer, former law professor, business entrepreneur, youth coach and witty public speaker. 

 Doug Holden is the legal translator for regular people in Colorado.

“For most people, legalese is a foreign language.

Because Doug is fluent in that world, you don’t have to be.

He explains the law to you, and you to the law.”

Doug listens to you.  Then, he converts the legalese surrounding your life’s events into language and terms you can understand.  Once you are clear on your options and opportunities, Doug customizes a package for your unique situation to assure you can take advantage of the protections and opportunities to which you are entitled. 

Doug isn’t just a legal personn.  Oh, he has a Juris Doctorate and over thirty years of stellar legal achievements all right.  And, yes he has been a professor of law.  But in addition, his undergraduate degree is in Business Management.  This plus an impressive resume of hands-on experience in business allows Doug to really understand life’s challenges from the perspective of someone who has been there.

Doug is a regular guy who understands regular people.  No silver spoon here.  After four years in the United States Air Force, and a couple of years in financial services, married with two children, he went back to school.  He worked as a security guard while paying his own way through a four-year undergraduate program in two and a half years – and graduated Cum Laude.  He continued working full time at several law firms while completing his law degree.

Doug has worked as corporate counsel in the financial services and manufacturing industries.  He has represented young professional athletes.  He has been instrumental in business start-up operations for an online university.  He wrote curriculum for and taught the first business law class for two major universities.  He has represented non-profit organizations pro bono (for free).  Somehow in the midst of all of this, he coached youth soccer, football, basketball, baseball.

All of this makes it sound like he is too busy to talk to you, but there he is, sitting by the phone waiting for your call with his laptop on his lap anticipating your email. 

Isn’t it time you talked to an attorney that speaks your language?
