Really understood my needs!
Great attorney. He explained the situation and my legal options and obligations in clear, easy to understand language. His process made it easy to get the right settlement. I was really satisfied with the results. With Mr. Jorgenson, the client always comes first!

Outstanding Legal Assistance!
I have been a Colorado business owner for the past 11 years, with a staff of 100+. During this time our business has needed an attorney knowledgeable in unemployment issues, workman's comp issues and employee theft. Gerald Jorgensen has been outstanding in all cases both with his knowledge and expertise. In my opinion, Gerald Jorgensen is top in his field and I would recommend him to anyone finding themselves in need of legal assistance!

Great consultation
Gerald was great! We only had a short phone consultation but by the end of it I had a clear path of action and I felt much less confused than I did before the call. I will absolutely hire him if needed!

We will use Jorgensen Law Firm again
Gerald and his team helped to make sure that we were represented in a case that was simply a misunderstanding between our company and our client. Gerald made sure that we understood what was going on, what was going to happen, and what could happen after the case was settled. We will use his law firm again to represent our company in the future.

Uhrich - destruction of home
The attorney who started our case left. Mr Jorgenson took over and I believe did his best. Things were missing from our file since the original attorney had left and I do not know exactly what happened. It was a difficult case and our outcome was not what we wanted, but Mr Jorgenson helped us get through it all.
