Sean Olson is a trial lawyer and founding member of the Olson Law Firm serving clients in Colorado and Wyoming. His practice focuses on providing unrivaled representation in and outside courtrooms at the state and federal level. Prior to founding the firm, Olson served the law enforcement and business communities as a partner at another prominent law firm and as an associate attorney at a national litigation firm. Olson’s experience at those firms allows him to offer the same quality of service provided by large Seventeenth Street law firms, at a fraction of the cost. Olson tailors his representation to the needs and desires of each client, taking the time to determine his client’s wishes prior to beginning work on a case. Olson received his J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where he graduated in the top 1 percent of his class, and where, since 2010, he serves as an adjunct professor teaching trial advocacy. He graduated from Drake University in 1995 with a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism and Mass Communication. Super Lawyers named Olson a Rising Star for the last four years in a row. Olson is a resident of Denver where he lives with his wife, two young children, and their dog, Maisy. Prior to becoming an attorney, Sean was an Emmy award winning photojournalist. His passion for that job took him around the globe telling other’s stories. He now uses those skills to tell his clients’ stories in courtrooms across Colorado and Wyoming.

Excellent support and guidance- Sean Olson
I have never had to seek an attorney before so was a bit reluctant and nervous about this process. I called several lawyers, but Sean was the one that stood out for his knowledge and also support/guidance. I trusted his direction in filing a claim to release me of a non-compete agreement I had with a previous company. Within a week, I was granted release! I'd highly recommend him as attorney!

Great
Sean is super prepared and smart. He is always gets back to me with updates I never feel left out of what's going on. His knowledge base and ideas are vast and he can really see the whole picture. Even though my case was found not in my favor it wasn't for lack of Sean's efforts. He was able to get the prosecution to admit he didn't even read my case before making his discipline decision. That's a good attorney.

Great Lawyer
I hired Sean for a personal injury case. Our case finally went to trial after ten years, three appeals and oral arguments in front of the Colorado Supreme Court. Sean was outstanding during the two week trial. His court presence was mainly responsible for the large settlement we received. If you want a lawyer that will go the distance for you, be there every step of the way, no matter how long it takes, a call to Sean first, will be the best decision you can make.

The best attorney in Denver!
You cannot go wrong in hiring the Olson Law Firm. Sean Olson is one of the brightest and most talented advocates I have ever had the privilege of meeting and working with. He worked so hard and compassionately on our case and truly cared about the cause and the outcome. Above all else, he honored our wishes and always supported us throughout the process. He was excellent in communication, meeting with us, and keeping us apprised every step of the way. If you want an attorney who will work so hard for you, care about you, and get you the outcome you want, hire Sean. There are not enough good things to say!

Medical Malpractice
Sean Olson represented me for a medical malpractice law suit and secured a settlement that was as large as could reasonably be expected. Before choosing Olson, I interviewed four other attorneys; Olson was clearly the best fit for me. I suppose that there is nothing joyful or satisfying in the pursuit of any case that requires litigation but Sean's bright attitude and cheerful demeanor made the process much more tolerable. I felt relieved and confident from the first day that I retained him. His consultative approach made me feel that I maintained sensible control of my own case with the security of being able to rely on his judgment, experience, and resources. As a career teacher I've learned that the teacher's own character is the most potent idea in the classroom; I believe the same is true for a lawyer. Sean's good and pleasant character help make him an effective negotiator and a potent force in the legal arena. I would not hesitate to use him again and I sincerely recommend him. The only thing preferable to retaining Olson would be simply to not need a lawyer in the first place.

Life changer
I am happy to recommend Sean, he worked very hard for a year to get my Case resolved he really put in the work and Care to help us win our case. He used loving Care when we were at our most fragile time of our life. Sean really helped the jury to see what difficulties we had to live through and how unfair this situation was for our family. I wish Sean the very best and most success.

Appreciative of Sean's hard work and dedication
I hired Sean to represent me regarding a work related appeal. He is professional and thorough. Because of his hard work and dedication, we won the appeal and it was wiped off my record. I have now transferred within the City of Denver and I don't think I would have had this opportunity without Sean's representation. If you need representation with an appeal please do not hesitate to contact Sean Olson.

Talented and Professional
I had a case in which Sean was opposing counsel. He was always prepared, organized, and polished. Although he was a zealous advocated for his client, he also treated all counsel and parties in a respectful, courteous, and professional manner. I would highly recommend Sean Olson as an attorney.

Extremely Professional
Sean and I had different clients on the same case. Throughout the case, Sean was not only a highly effective advocate for his client, but also a true professional, who acted in a courteous and cooperative manner toward the other clients and counsel.

Courteous, prompt and straightforward
What sets Sean apart from other attorneys is his customer service. He is prompt to meetings and extremely courteous in all exchanges and I never once felt like he was talking down to me or that his time was more important than mine. He is also very straightforward about the law and all exchanges that his clients should be having. He coaches you through your frustrations and helps you see the light at the end of the tunnel. Let's face it, if you are dealing with an attorney, there is a not so pleasant situation that you are trying to resolve. Sean helps you get through the tough days and keeps you grounded and focused. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Highly Recommended!
Sean has represented my company on a number of matters. Having worked with, and seen many attorneys in action, I give Sean only the highest marks across the board. Sean is highly intelligent, articulate, professional, and most of all, gives each case the attention it deserves (not something I have always found in other counsel). I found the respect that he is given in court, from both his opposing counsel and the presiding judges, to be possibly the greatest barometer of his skills and professional demeanor as an officer of the court.

Review on Sean Timothy Olson
Mr. Olson has represented me on one of the highest profile cases in Denver Police history that has been ongoing since August of 2010 to the present day. Since the initial interview with Internal Affairs all the way to the Civil Service Commission, Hearing Officers, District Court twice, Sean has been nothing but Excellent!!! He has always filed opening briefs, supplemental briefs, and closing arguments on time and with nothing but outstanding legal facts, not opinions. I have been in Law Enforcement for over 20 years and have had to have legal representation in unknown number of cases that I have been involved in on and off duty. In my career in Law Enforcement, I have never been represented so well. Mr. Olson is by far the best Attorney I have had ever represent me in my entire career. I have Police Officers call me all the time complaining about their legal representation and how other attorneys don't respond to emails, text messages, and phone calls for upwards of 2 weeks. These same Officers same the same thing to me all the time, "Man I wish I had Mr. Olson as my attorney. Mr. Olson has always responded to me no matter how busy he is. He has represented Denver Police Officers in nothing but the most professional and organized manner than any attorney that I have ever had. The bottom line in all this is simply put is this. Sean Timothy Olson is a Rockstar attorney that is head and shoulders above any other attorney I have had in 20 plus years of law enforcement.
