President, AJI
Evan has been nothing short of excellent in over 25 years dealing with all of our corporate legal issues. We have 5 entities that he has among other things, formulated sales agreements, issuance of stock certificates, buy/sell agreements, collections, and State of Colorado Secretary of State compliance. He has always offered reasonable advice to help our multiple ownership team make practical decisions in all aspects over the years.

Evan has been extremely easy to talk to, explains what we need to know, listens to our input and ideas on how to proceed, and clearly explains our options and the possible scenarios that could arise. He has been very cost effective in helping us get paid money due on a number of different projects

Wolyniec vs Pinnacle Mountain Homes
Evan did a great job. He was able to negotiate with PMH and their lawyers to get a written settlement that worked for me and kept it out of court!! He was also very fair in his billing.

from a friend and client
Evan has been a longtime friend and even a customer of mine in (HVAC) so when I needed a lawyer I could trust and who would do his best for my case I went directly to him for help. He fulfilled my needs completely and maximized my return from my accident. Thank You

Satisfied Client
Mr. Lipstein represented us in a civil lawsuit in 2010 and 2011. We are very conservative, and to pursue legal representation was a very exceptional action on our part. We initially confirmed the budgeted amount that we had reserved for his fees. His fees were very explicit, fair, and he kept within our budget. Mr. Lipstein should be commended for his immediate responses to our questions and to the court. He represented us very professionally and his knowledge of law was definitely an asset to our suit. We won our case and feel that his performance should be lauded.

"I endorse this lawyer. I have known Evan Lipstein for 22 years, having first worked for him during law school, and having shared office space with him for many years. Evan is one of the smartest and hard-working lawyers I know. He practices in many areas of civil litigation, including employment law, real estate, and corporate law. He is a great advocate for his clients, and is always very ethical and professional. His experience really pays off for his clients, as he is both a good negotiator and trial lawyer."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Evan is a zealous, yet professional, advocate for his clients, and strives to handle cases in a cost effective and practical manner. I first met Evan when we were representing different clients in a mechanic's lien foreclosure action. I was very impressed with Evan's work and since then have referred several cases to him that could not be handled by my office for one reason or another."

"I endorse this lawyer as a litigation attorney, for commercial litigation, employment law, and real estate-related matters. Evan is a "go-to" person for resolving thorny problems. He is a strong advocate, and because of his experience, is able to strategize the most efficient and practical way to resolve a dispute. If it's not resolved -- he'll go to trial!"
