Great Lawyer
I hired Alan for a personal injury case. It took ten years to get to a trial. Three appeals and oral arguments in front of the Colorado Supreme Court. He never gave up, his experience, determination and guidance, was the key to receiving a large settlement. If you want a lawyer that will be there every step of the way, no matter what the obstacles are, or how long it takes, call Alan first, it will be the best decision you ever make.

Great Lawyer
Alan & his staff have done an exceptional job with our case against an assisted living home that neglectfully allowed my Mom to sustain a head trauma causing her death. He was very caring, honest & knowledgeable about Elder Care laws & won the case. His thorough investigation of the case helped me recover from her death by seeing all aspects of the events leading up to the accident. His actions went above beyond any expectations my husband & I had. We are very pleased with the outcome.

Treated my son and me with dignity and respect. Great understanding of the law and we received a settlement from the insurance carriers at the maximum policy limits in a very challenging case. He and his team did thorough research and were very competent and genuinely cared about our well being.

Surgery Consultation
We saw Alan for a consultation about a bad surgery that my Mom had. We talked about the steps that should be taken. I trust Alan very much, he has helped me before with other issues. He was my lawyer when I got hurt on an auto accident. He is very caring and explains very well what needs to be done. Thanks Alan for always helping.

Compassionate consultation- I like this guy!
In two minutes, I knew Alan is the kind of guy you want to live next door to. He came highly recommended from a friend who has been in law enforcement for 30 years. He is principle centered, and a compassionate human being. He was a great listener, and asked poignant and clarifying questions about my case. To ice the cake, he is a skilled and experienced attorney, who understands the law and all of the underpinnings that most of us don't deal with on a daily basis. I got expert advise, and I feel blessed to have met him. I know anyone searching for a personal injury attorney will not be disappointed!

Fantastic lawyer and a wonderful group of people!!
When I first met Alan Shafner I had been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident in 2012. I was very scared and I didnt know what to do. I had spoken with other attorneys that actually turned my case away due to the lack of documented evidence. Alan agreed to help me. All the while being very honest and upfront with me about the complexity of the case, but yet very caring and reassuring. After eight surgeries, and a few long years Alan and his associates successfully resolved my case better than I could have ever hoped. He really fought for me and what was right. He Took an extremely difficult situation and walked me through it. I will always be grateful to Alan and everyone in his firm. Not only for their hard work, but most of all for their kindness and compassion. When you are faced with challenging, life changing injuries it is always comforting to have people who have your back. There is no one better!!!

A Lawyer Who Cares
I met Alan a little over a year ago and he helped me with my personal injury claim after my motor vehicle accident. He had a comfortable office, friendly staff, and was generally a charismatic attorney. He actually cared about my health and my financial standings after the wake of my tragedy. He was always eager to answer my questions and was very knowledgeable about this area of the law; I can't believe he's had over 20 years of experience! I really like that he has a smaller business compared to other law firms, it makes his interactions with me, and I'm sure his other clients, so much more intimate - I never imagined being on a first name basis with an attorney!
