My name is Birk Baumgartner, and I am the principal at Baumgartner Law, LLC. For years, I have been providing personalized  legal counsel to the people of Colorado as they face the most difficult legal problems of their lives. My clients come from all walks of life and backgrounds, and I pride myself on helping each and everyone of them successfully navigate the legal system. I am the fourth attorney in my family, but unlike my family members, I declined a job at a big law firm. Instead, I decided to dedicate my practice to real people who need personalized help. I have been consistently beating lawyers in big firms ever since, and now my firm has a reputation as a firm for the people of Denver. I became a lawyer because I believe that justice, and access to great legal counsel, should be available to everyone.

Highly Skilled
It's been a long road since the car wreck I was in and I do not think I could have gotten through it without Baumgartner. Everyone is so kind and remembers my name. It made all the difference not going through this alone and importantly having the medical bills and compensation from this emotional and physical tornado. Thank you thank you.

Family law
I hired Birk for a custody and child support modification that was long overdue. Birk was always honest and eager to answer my questions and explain the process. From the beginning, he proved he is trustworthy and dedicated to achieving the best outcome. It was a lengthy process and I appreciate Birk and his staff for the support and hard work.

Birk Baumgartner Is The Man
I worked with Birk for about seven months in 2020. Birk Baumgartner is not only the most quick-witted attorney I have ever worked with; he is the most magnetic. Birk has a way of persuading even the most ardent of opponents to see his side of things and he does it with remarkable efficiency and grace. I admire Birk's work ethic and attitude, both of which are exceptional, but most of all I admire his energy. He isn't afraid to argue his position passionately but he also keeps it professional and clean. If you're looking for someone to care about your case and fight for you every step of the way with character and integrity, Birk Baumgartner is the man.

The Best of The Best, Money Well Spent
Birk has helped me out immensely with my cases and I believe my outcome would've been vastly different had I not enlisted his help. All of the members of his firm are personable, professional, and helpful. I could not recommend a better law firm if you find yourself facing legal troubles!

The best of the best.
Birk is beyond comparison and I cannot thank him enough with his help in a sensitive legal matter. I was in a tough predicament expecting the worst, which could’ve easily happened, but with Birk involved the the absolute best outcome possible happened. I couldn’t believe it. He is talented, intelligent, and importantly passionate in what he does and for his clients cases. Thanks again.

I'd Recommend Baumgartner Law to Anyone
I could not have been more satisfied with the legal representation I received from Birk. He was communicable and he was professional. But anove all else, he really cared about my case and was very, very good. It's a rare combination these days and I won't use anyone else for any future legal rep I need. I'd recommend him to anyone!

Recommended Knowledgeable Lawyer
Birk Baumgartner really looked after my case and always had my best interest in mind, he's a honest, upfront and very trustworthy person. From the beginning he was prompt and professional with answering my questions, kept me informed even if it was a Sunday evening. Birk was understanding and worked with me as far as a payment plan. The hard work and detail he put in really showed bc the outcome of our case far exceeded my expectations. Should be needed I would definitely hire Birk as my lawyer again.

Protection order/psychological parent/parental rights/personal injury cases
Birk Baumgartner is by far the best attorney I have ever worked with. I trust Birk with not only my life, but also my child's life and truly cannot say enough good things about him or thank him enough for his help. Birk just completed a few complicated cases for me regarding parental responsibilities, psychological parenting, and a civil protection order. The outcome was better than I could have ever hoped for. He is also my attorney for a car accident that happened during the other cases and I immediately called him, as he will now be my go to attorney for life. My mother has said too many times to count "what would you do if it wasn't for Birk, he is such a lifesaver" and that's a statement that couldn't be more true. I don't know how I would have gotten through this insanely difficult and stressful time if I hadn't had Birk as my attorney. When friends of mine hear the outcome of my case they are beyond impressed and want his number for their own legal issues (I have been asked for his number for 4 cases in the last week alone, he's that good). Birk is professional, ethical, knowledgeable and explains everything very well. He is happy to answer as many questions as you may have to ensure you understand your choices and the potential outcomes. He has a personal investment in each case that is rare with attorneys, and despite the fact that he's a very busy man he always makes you feel like a priority. Birk knows the law extremely well, and spends an extraordinary amount of time researching case law and preparing for every possible scenario. He was always two steps ahead of me with everything, and had thought of all the crazy scenarios I asked him about well in advance of me even thinking to ask. He is prepared, organized and goes above and beyond what is expected of him by his client. He's also personable and I felt comfortable sharing very private details with him because he is easy to talk to, even about the most difficult things. I never worried about unexpected costs with Birk as my attorney, as he was always up front and accurate about what it would cost. At one point I thought I owed him more money because he kept mentioning having his office manager send me a final invoice. I knew the amount of work he'd put into my cases, and when I asked approximately how much more I owed him he instead told me he actually owed me money back out of my initial retainer. I knew that wasn't the case because the amount of time we had spent in court and on the phone and meeting alone was easily the full amount of my retainer, especially with how lawyers typically bill. This just showed me even more what type of attorney and how ethical of a person he is, especially since he is worth easily two or three times what he charged me and I would have paid him more without hesitation. There's not a single bad thing I can say about Birk and I can't say enough positive things to really explain how fantastic he is. But if you are looking for an attorney who will fight your case as if it were his own life on the line, Birk Baumgartner is the one you should hire. He not only won my cases for me but got me more than I ever anticipated. Even if he hadn't won, my trust and confidence in him would still remain the same because if he couldn't do it then no one could. Knowing I had Birk in my corner made an almost unbearably stressful situation manageable and I never doubted his ability to achieve the best outcome possible for me. He completely exceeded my expectations and I am eternally grateful for his hard work and dedication.
