I hired Andy regarding a permanent protection order against me. We had a ton of evidence to dispute the issue. Andy handled the hearing so well that I never had to testify and we introduced none of our exhibits. He made it easy for the judge to dismiss the charges. He and Holly and absolutely amazing! They are professional, detailed, and direct. You can NOT find a better lawyer or firm!

I am a current client of Mr. Contiguglia and he has been the best attorney I've ever worked with. He is my corporate and personal attorney. First of all, he is the kindest and easiest to work with- for both his client (me) and our counterparts in negotiations. He is well-versed in business law, corporate governance, principles of negotiation, and seemingly everything. He gives an objective point of view and is not afraid to challenge me in my decisions if I need to consider new information. I highly recommend him.

Mr. Contiguglia has been my personal and corporate attorney for 5 years now. I have found him to be in addition to a good attorney and devoted father and now friend. If client attorney relationships were all like this one certainly everyone would benefit.

I have been doing business with Andrew for the better part of the last 6 years. As a Small Business owner and parent, I can tell you there is true peace of mind knowing that he is just a phone call away. Along with his powerful representation, you can always count on him for a positive attitude and insightful, sound, and straight forward advice.
Whatever your needs, you can rest assured they will be handled with Respect, Honesty and Integrity.

His advice was very specific and useful. He was also honest about telling me that I would not need a lawyer for what I wanted to do, unless there was a problem. How does it get any better than that?

Been working with Andrew for ten years. As a photographer I often need help on normal contracts and the like, but at other times need to get into court or negotiations over copyright issues, and at other times I just need a spokesman between myself and media types. Andrew has done a fine job in all situations.

Andy has been my attorney since 2001. He has handled all of my legal needs to a T in the past and is currently working on a business deal of mine. One example of Andy's outstanding abilities is when he successfully defended me in a civil matter, the plaintiff of that case hired Andy to represent them in a different case a few years later. All dealings with Andy have been nothing short of FIVE Stars. He has been and will continue to be my first and only choice in legal needs. I absolutely recommend Andy and his firm to ANYONE who needs assistance in any matters of law.

Andrew is consistently on top of everything for us both as a business and as individuals. In addition to efficiently tackling all of the typical tasks required by a startup company, Andrew has expedited a difficult process of assigning intellectual property for us, working incredibly well with our patent attorney every step of the way. Mr. Contiguglia is more than capable - he will always work quickly and effectively for you and/or your company.

Andy is an extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and compassionate attorney. I needed to call Andy when I found myself in a complicated legal situation about a year and a half ago, and he was there for me every step of the way, explaining each facet of my case to me in great detail, and truly caring about the outcome. He has an excellent rapport with many DAs and other metro area attorneys, which is exceedingly important in any litigation. I consistently recommend Andy to anyone I know in need of a criminal defense or family lawyer. I work with attorneys for a living, and Andy stands above the rest in every aspect - intelligence, empathy, accessibility, and experience. He works incredibly hard, and for very reasonable rates. He deserves a five-star rating.

I had a very good, but legally tricky, case because of the way CO DV law and the affirmative defense of "self defense" are written. Andy was very knowledable of these factors and was very concerned about what would be in my best interest to do. This was my first and only offense and I had a very good reputation and interests to protect. As confident and sympathetic as Andy was about the quality of my case at trial, he helped me to understand the risks of a trial and jury, and the benefits of considering working towards a "known" outcome. He negotiated a settlement that I was comfortable with, that protectd my reputation and interests, and will put this behind me in a shorter amount of time than normal. I am very relieved at the outcome, the way Andy handled me and my case and the reasonablness of his fee structure. He also has a great staff!

Andrew is representing our company in a lawsuit with the EPA and has done an outstanding job of responding to the EPA allegations and in negotiating a settlement of the lawsuit.

I find Andrew Contiguglia to be very responsive and informative regarding my case and other questions. I haven't faced many legal issues, so his knowledge helps immensely in navigating the processes and understanding the options and issues. I find him trustworthy and feel I have someone on my side who will protect my interests and fairly represent me.

I have known Andy since college, and have always respected him for his dedication, diligence and exceptional communication and interpersonal skills. Andy can talk to anyone - client, colleague, total stranger - and make them feel they have his complete attention. He takes time and carefully delves into cases, learning the facts, the law and the people involved, so he can provide them with the best counsel possible for their particular situation. I wholeheartedly endorse Andy!
