Proud to call Dinosaurland his birthplace (that’s Vernal, UT to the uninitiated), Attorney Curtis grew up in Utah. There he met and married his wife, and they both finished college.

Attorney Curtis received his Baccalaureate’s degree from Brigham Young University in 2004 majoring in Russian and Business after having lived in Russia for two years. He then received his law degree in 2008 from New England Law located in the heart of Boston.

After moving to Colorado, he successfully passed the bar exam on his first try. Attorney Curtis then went on to earn his Masters of Law degree (LL.M.) from the University of Denver in 2009 specializing in Taxation.

The Curtis Family have firmly planted their roots here and are proud to call Colorado their home. When not spending time with his family, Attorney Curtis likes to find ways to volunteer in the community. He currently volunteers as a youth leader for his church, and serves in a local leadership role with the Boy Scouts in his area. He also volunteers through his Masonic Lodge. Attorney Curtis is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, the Arapahoe Bar Association, and the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA).

Great for wills!!!
Cory and the team at Curtis law firm were absolutely lovely to work with. Their team feels like family and I felt very welcome the moment I walked in the door. They explained everything about my will very clearly to me as well. I highly recommend Curtis law firm for drafting your will, etc!

One to be trusted for sure
This is the second time we have used Cory...first for a Will and now for what we considered a complicated Trust set up. He is extremely personable, explains things exceptionally well in layman's terms and is more accessible most lawyers we have dealt with. HIGHLY recommended!

Impressive
Mr Curtis was very professional during my consultation. He was friendly, helpful, and courteous. I was surprised to find out that I didn't require his services beyond a consultation, but he answered my questions anyway to my complete satisfaction. Thank you Mr Curtis!

Truly Exceptional Service
At the onset of Covid-19, I decided to create my end of life legal documents. Not knowing anyone in the Greater Denver area, I looked to reviews on Thumbtack. Cory Curtis responded within the hour, scheduled my free consultation via telephone, gave me an estimate and explained the process clearly. I signed with him and he not only delivered on-time, but he was extremely thorough, responsive and explained everything in easy to understand language. I am delighted with his firm, and with him in particular, and highly recommend him to anyone looking for Estate Planning.

Knowledgeable and Honest
I wasn't sure how intense my divorce case would get when I reached out to Cory's office. I was lost when it came to what to do and how to do it in regards to the law. Cory's office helped guide me to resolve my case with wayyy beyond what I imagined to be the best outcome. He outperformed my expectations. Not only did he help keep my head level and focused on the important things, he was direct and honest with me on what to expect and what to avoid. When I searched for a lawyer, I made sure to avoid the lawyers that promised me the moon and everything under the sun just so I can sign and hire them. Cory only focused on facts and ignored things that would've been detrimental to my case. I absolutely never wanted to hire a lawyer when my case started but I'm glad I did and I'm glad I hired Cory.

Custody Battle
I was going through a very difficult and almost three year custody battle. The amount of stress I had was insane but luckily once I found Curtis Law Firm, I felt much better. Cory made sure to understand everything in case and helped me out so much. If it wasn’t for Cory, I don’t think my case would’ve gone good like it did. Very understanding law firm also and a lawyer that cares about your case!

They are my first law firm by choice and i will continue to use them in the future. They possess knowledge, integrity, prompt phone call returns, kind hearts and most importantly i believe solid strategies in dealing with a mirad of legal issues as i have needed the past few years.

Great law firm one of the best of the west
Don't let the size of this firm scare you away. They may be small but they are really a good firm to work with. We had them do estate work for my husband's mother. She was ill and they came to the house to complete the paperwork. She passed the next day. We have now retained them to present us in court to close out the estate in probate. I would highly recommend this firm to any and all.

Outstanding
Corey and his staff especially Stacy were exceptional. They were prompt in addressing issues that came up. They fully represent you as a client and fight for what is right and in the best interest of the children. I will continue to use Corey if needed do to the representation he provided and he genuinely listens to his clients and adds a personal touch.

Best Lawyer Ever!
Cory helped me with a Parental Responsibilities case where I was trying to move my son and I to Texas! I did not encounter one mistake or problem when working with Cory! He was always professional, punctual and in a positive mood! When I had questions- Either him or his office got back to us right away with an answer! I only have great things to say about Mr. Curtis and if I'm ever back in Denver & need representation- He'll be my first call!

Empathetic and knowledgeable lawyers
Kind attorneys are very hard to find. Krista and Cory are very personable, kind and knowledgeable. Bankruptcy was a very shameful thing for me and it took pure desperation for me to seek council but I'm so glad I did. I walked out of our first consultation feeling like a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. They were empathetic, receptive and confident that they could help me, which they did! I thought their fees were very reasonable and I was able to do a payment plan. They guided me throughout the process and even afterwards. My experience was overall really positive, which is strange considering it was bankruptcy. I 100% recommend Krista and Cory, not only are they good lawyers but they are good people.

Parenting Time/Child Support Case
I hired Cory Curtis’s Firm just a little over 2 years for a custody case recently. The company I’m employed with, offers its employees an additional benefit at a small annual cost called Legal Shield. I worked with them to find a nice list of very reputable attorneys and started making my phone calls. I talked to over a dozen attorneys. From lone attorneys who had 40+ years’ experience, attorney duos, teams, and most wanted to spin the case this way, and attorneys who like to bully the opposing party. Attorneys, who seriously wanted to lie, spin the case that way, and go for all the opposing party’s money or throat like a chess game so they can’t keep their attorney and we win by default like. Ones that would rather focus on a win instead of the events of the case and how everything actually will affect my family. I spoke with Cory Curtis over the phone for almost 2 hours prior to recruiting his firm, and out of the 20 or so attorneys I reached out to, I could not be happier with my decision. He’s a man who truly thinks of the whole family picture for his clients. Same for his team. Regardless of the outcome of my cases with him, he and his staff were really on my team. I know you say, “Well you’re paying him thousands of dollars… of course he’s going to be on your team.” What I mean is there are many ways to handle a case. He and his staff worked diligently, efficiently, and effectively on research, documentation, preparation and watched out for areas where it’d save lots of money for me to gather XYZ evidence or paperwork, and point me in the right direction. Once all the facts and proof was gathered, he and his firm were amazingly already 90% in line with what approach I felt comfortable without back and forth discussion and just the facts on the case. Going through the natural back and forth and continual communication throughout our time together, we quickly gained that last 10% making us 100% on the same page with how to handle the case both on the preparedness, and presentation\professionally aggressive if needed. I have recommended, and will continue to recommend the Curtis Law Firm to anyone needing legal assistance.
