Rose is great!
I interviewed a couple of Denver area attorneys before hiring Rose Mary Zapor to do my will. I learned about her after asking friends for a referral. Rose has had many years of experience with elder law and services for the elderly, including estate planning, and with how laws work in Colorado. She did my will for a reasonable flat fee, which made me feel at ease, not on the clock, while i asked numerous questions and she answered them patiently. Rose was meticulous and detail-oriented going through various options and scenarios, and gave me some good suggestions and warnings about what not to do. Her staff is efficient, too.

Rose is Great
Rose helped me with medical lawsuit and was so helpful. Quick, responsive and caring. Rose helped me in a difficult situation with opposing lawyers and went the extra mile to resolve my issue. Honest and caring!

One of the very best
Rose is an amazing lawyer. She is fair, knowledgeable and a very kind person. She is very well-versed in several different types of law including elder law, military law and family law. She is an acceptional mediator and a blessing to any case you may have. I used to say Rose had a heart of gold, but now I know she is solid gold from head to toe. She has my highest recomendation for any project she undertakes, any relationship she has or any legal matter for which you may need assistance. I would hire her at any other time as well for whatever issue I had at hand.
