Outstanding service!
We were looking for an attorney for some family business regarding real estate contracts and found Mr. Newell. He was extremely knowledgeable and accessible and was very prompt with all of the processes we required. He was also very organized and very pleasant. We would highly recommend him as a real estate contract attorney!

Excellent Attorney
James went above and beyond the normal call of duty to research and resolve my complicated issue. He did it in the most effective manner possible & resolved the issue very quickly. I found his services to be excellent and above my expectations. I would recommend him to anyone.

Hire this lawyer!
Great guy. He went above and beyond the call of duty for me. Long story short I put an offer on a house in Boulder and won. My down payment was substantial and so was my earnest deposit. Not long before closing my lender refused to go through with the loan due to a problem with the HOA. The sale fell through, through no fault of my own, and the sellers refused to sign a release to have the escrow agent return my earnest deposit. It was very stressful having to deal with this so I looked for a lawyer who focused on cases like mine and found James on this site. Honestly, I wasn't quite sure at first if he would be the right lawyer for the job given the fact that he is still pretty new. Nonetheless, he was highly reviewed and having started multiple business over my lifetime I know full well that one doesn't need to be old or middle aged to be talented and capable, so I set up a time to meet him in person and hired him on the spot. He got right on it. Throughout the process he communicated very well--he kept me in the loop on everything that was going on and answered all my questions right away. After about a week and a half the sellers caved and released my earnest deposit. Thanks to the help of my fantastic lawyer I got my money back. As always, it was well worth it to hire a lawyer to fight for my interests throughout the process. Normally I don't write reviews but he really deserves all the praise that comes his way. He knows the law like the back of his hand, he knows how to be strong and forceful when he needs to be, and he's always a consummate professional. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Drafted deed to refinance home
I wanted to refinance my house given the low interest rates. Well, it was actually in the name of a trust so the lender wouldn't do it. I found James through a referral and he got to work on it. From what he told me it was a relatively straightforward process. That's what he said but it was not something I trusted myself to do the way it needed to be done. It's was great having an expert on my side who knew what needed to be done and did it. It really only took about a week before it was filed with the county. The lender didn't have any problems so I was happy. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.

Outstanding job helping me deal with ADEA dispute
Last month I fired an employee due to poor performance. He was showing up to work on time, his productivity was far less than the other employees in his department, and he was missing deadlines left and right. Well as it turns out that employee thought he was fired due to his age (he was more than 50 years old). I met with Mr. Newell and learned about the law that was at play (the Age Discrimination in Employment Act) and the next steps I should take. With Mr. Newell's top-notch assistance, we got rid of the problem without giving up very much at all. Needless to say, James is now my go-to lawyer for essentially anything related to my business: contracts, advise on employee issues, some tax issues, and anything else that comes up.

Excellent, cost-effective representation!
My landlord posted a notice on my door saying I had to be out of my apartment in 3 days! I didn't know any lawyers off the top of my head who would take my case so I searched Avvo and found James. I called to set up an appointment and the next day I met with James to go over my options. After looking over my lease, James was able to inform me of my rights and responsibilities. It turns out my landlord had no right to force my wife and me out of our apartment. I told the property manager why she was wrong and that I would fight her in court if she continued. She caved! Although I didn't have to actually hire James to help me this time, I'll definitely be recommending him to my friends and family if any of them need help dealing with a shady landlord, or need help with any real estate issue for that matter!

Thank you!
Mr. Newell got me out of a tough situation with my landlord. Long story short, my landlord told me I needed to be out of my apartment within a week! I found Mr. Newell through this site and gave him a call. He set up an appointment for the next day and explained my rights to me. It turns out my landlord was over the line in trying to evict me. Mr. Newell got it all straightened out right away. If it weren't for his help I don't know what I would have done. I hope this review helps you find more clients. Thank you so much for your help!

Saving money as an S-Corp!
I met Jim at a Chamber of Commerce networking event. I mentioned that I had never filed any paperwork to become an LLC or a corporation. We met a few days later at his office to talk about business entity selection. After asking me about my business in-depth, he explained to me why he believed I should register my business as an LLC and then file paperwork with the IRS to elect for status as an S-Corp. I couldn't believe my accountant never told me about this! Jim set everything up for me and my accountant told me I'll be saving a significant amount of money on my taxes next year due to my change in status! I'll definitely be giving Jim a call anytime I need legal advise and have been recommending him any time a business or real estate issue comes up with my business friends and acquaintances. Thank you!

Personable, Trustworthy, Reliable, Hard-worker
Jim has done quite a bit of work for us, and each time he's given invaluable insights and advice on each situation we've been in. Every time we go to Jim for help he takes plenty of time to thoroughly explain difficult to understand terms and concepts. Jim clearly breaks things down from legal terms and concepts to real world terms and examples. He's explained things to us that would've been completely confusing if he wasn't helping us out. He's guided us and he's been an excellent advocate for our best interests. We recommend Jim to everyone we know, and we will continue to trust him with all of our legal needs. He's a hard-worker, professional, and personable. Highly recommend!

Helps me make the best decisions for my rental business
With the rental market being as red hot as it currently is, I decided to purchase several rental properties in the Westminster area. Jim came highly recommended from my accountant as a very competent, eloquent lawyer with an eye for creative problem solving. I used a real estate agent to purchase the properties, but needed a lawyer to draw up my standard rental agreement and advise me about potential liabilities and more complex tax issues that my accountant didn't have the expertise to handle on his own. We met for an initial interview but after that all of our communication was via email and over the phone. Every time I've needed help he has been quick to get back to me with well-researched answers that I feel confident relying on. He may not have grey hair, but he is one of the hardest working, sharpest attorneys I've known. Most importantly, he's a man of integrity who always confronts tough issues head on, even when the truth might not be what you want to hear. He's not just out to make a buck--it's clear he takes his responsibility to act in the best interests of his clients very seriously.
