The Best
Pennie is the BEST attorney anyone could find. We needed an attorney for a case regarding our 10 month old son @ the time. Although we resided in another state and were only in Colorado due to our son being flight for life, Pennie meet with us and looked @ what should had been done regarding his medical care. We felt she was the best attorney due to her medical knowledge as well as her legal expertise. Our family endured tragedy that was almost fatal to our 10 month old that could had been avoided, but thanks to God our child made it thru and is now 8 yrs old. Thanks to Pennie and her firm they made sure that our child's future will be bright and less stressful financially. If you are in need of an attorney that you can trust and have confidence in, look no further. Thanks Pennie will we never forget and always be appreciative of you and your hard work and dedication to our child and our family.

Pennie Clor is highly recommended.
Pennie is just the best. She helped me carefully navigate an impossible situation with my employer and come out of it with a win that I could not have gotten myself. At the beginning of my case I thought that I had no hope, but Pennie steered me towards great decisions and strategy, ultimately managing to get my Workers Comp to pay.

Motorcycle accident thank you
Pennie and Kelly provided amazing service in regard to my motorcycle accident. Kelly provided excellent support in regards to documents and knowledge. Many of the documents were confusing and she was quite adept at navigating them. Pennie and her team were also very familiar with the services, outside of insurance, that were applicable to me (ie. SSDI). And finally, Pennie was there to answer my questions and appease my anxiety on many aspects of this episode in my life. She was able to determine the merits of my case and the maximize what i was able to obtain, not what she could say she got awarded. Ultimately she acquired a settlement that changed how I operate in life, in a better way. I am very thankful to the help Pennie and Kelly has provided.

Pennie Clor, expert in medical malpractice.
Pennie is hard working, highly qualified, intelligent and dedicated to her clients. Her experience as a Registered Nurse and Lawyer make her an expert in medical malpractice. She is very personable and compassionate. She took careful notes of my case, found expert witnesses and deposed them. Encouraged me while I was deposed. Sat by me through the mediation process. And kept me updated regularly on the status of my case.
