My highest recommendation
Brad Laybourne worked tirelessly on my case for almost 3 years. This being my first time needing a lawyer, I started by researching where he went to school. Brad was educated at Stanford University and the University of California. He comes from a long line of lawyers in his family and he has been in practice in our area since 2004 with wonderful reviews. I am proud Brad represented me not just because of his intelligence and talent as a lawyer, but also as a person of integrity and compassion. He was tough when he fought for my truth, and kind when he saw my suffering. Brad kept me informed and discussed his thoughts with me every step of the way. He respected my thoughts and made me feel part of the team. My case was settled out of court and the result reached above both of our expectations. Brad has my gratitude and highest recommendation.

Thanks for the reassurance
Our son was recently named in an unfounded, false and potentially defamatory accusation. We consulted Mr. Laybourne to see what options may be available to us in the event this false accusation is filed. Brad not only talked to my husband a couple of times on the phone, but was also willing to meet with us in person so I could receive some clarification and understand the situation better. He spent quite a bit of time with us and at no point did I feel rushed through or patronized. I'm sure he hears about these situations every day. Brad was highly professional, patient, yet personable and we could tell he understood by asking pertinent questions while we repeated our concerns over and over. I'm confident that, if needed, we will retain Brad to represent our son as he thoroughly understands our frustration and the impact this could have on his future and reputation. For a family that has never had to have an legal consult, it is reassuring to know there are people out there that listen, believe and care who you are. Thank you, Brad!

Genuine and trustworthy
I had met Brad about 6 months ago and never thought I would need a lawyer. Unfortunately I needed the advice and help of a lawyer so I reached out to Brad. He gave me a call on a Saturday afternoon to discuss my issues and is helping me to get done what I need. He was very genuine in his conversations with me and I know I can trust him to do what he says!

Personal Injury Lawyer
Brad was my personal injury lawyer after I was in a motorcycle accident. He and his staff did a really good job. They know their business, and they are always available when you need to call.

Personal Injury case
My experience at Quality Legal was excellent. I had a personal injury case, and my case was handled with personal attention and care. Their fee was also much lower than the "big box" firms.
Posted by Emmy | May 21, 2015
I was rearended while at a stop light, and my daughter was in the car, too. We were both pretty seriously injured. My daughter and I were both mentally stressed, as we had never been in a car accident before, let alone a catastrophic one. My lawyer told me up front and honestly that they probably could not get me enough money to make us whole again, but darn it if they didn't come close. Of course, it would not be worth any amount of money to put myself and my daughter in that kind of harm. Thank you so much for your caring, support and professionalism.

Thank you Quality Legal!
My experience with Quality Legal was superb. I was in a car accident, and the coverage limits did not cover my injuries. They were able to make it so I did not have to pay back my health insurance because I was not in any way fully compensated for my injuries because of the car insurance running out. As a matter of fact, I was not even aware that I had an obligation to pay back my health insurance in the first place, let alone how to avoid it. At any rate, this led to me actually putting a good chunk of money in my pocket. Mr. Laybourne even reduced his fee to help me out. I can't thank them enough!

Got me much more than I expected
Mr. Laybourne recovered much more than I was expecting after my motorcycle accident. He even got my own insurance company to pay for a lot of my pain and suffering after the other driver's insurance ran out.

Understanding, Professional and Knowledgable
When I was slapped with an unfounded charge of domestic violence harassment over an incident with an ex-boyfriend and the Manitou Springs Police Department I was angry, scared, and confused. Brad took my case and informed me of all the ways it could play out while assuring me of his competence in this specific area of law. He let me know straight away about all of the tools we had at our disposal to prove my story and come to a reasonable outcome in the situation. He treated me as someone capable of understanding the process instead of simplifying things to an elementary level of, "don't worry about it". Ultimately, my case was dropped at my first court appearance. I am not sure if this is because the "victim" did not show up, the DA didn't have any evidence, or it was something Brad himself had fought for in his conversation with them. Regardless, not only did he stick around through the entire process but he also refunded my father the full amount paid and advised me on the steps I can take in the coming months to have this accusation sealed from my public record. He is friendly, personable, professional and clearly has a a tight grip on his profession and knowledge of the law. I will definitely hire him again when it is time to seal this from my record, as well as for any other legal proceedings in my future.

Excellent Attorney
I agree with what the other reviewer said about how he looks young. But don't let this fool you. Mr. Laybourne shows a quiet confidence that leaves him totally in control in the courtroom. He was always prepared and always brilliant. Best of all, he kept me prepared throughout the process. I was pleased with my settlement and pleased with the way Mr. Laybourne cared deeply about me and my case.

Great Accident Attorney
I was t-boned on my motorcycle by a semi. I was lucky to live, but my life without being able to work and with medical bills piling up was not great. I hired Mr. Laybourne, and I am very pleased with the outcome. Their insurance company played hardball, first saying the accident was my fault and then later saying I was faking my injuries, which was ridiculous. However, Mr. Laybourne was a real fighter in court, and their silly arguments went nowhere. In fact, he was able to use it against them! He's brilliant, but I am warning you he does look really young. Don't let this throw you off because this is just how he looks. I was worried at first, but he actually has a lot of experience and has been doing this a long time. He's also wise beyond his years.

Excellent Criminal Defense Attorney
Mr. Laybourne was my DUI attorney after my embarassing arrest. I was treated unfairly by the police, but Mr. Laybourne made it right by convincing the jury at trial that I was not guilty of the charges. I was upset that I had to endure the time and stress of dealing with my dui charges, but I was lucky I found the right lawyer to restore justice to my situation. I recommend Mr. Laybourne a criminal defense attorney, but also as a human being. I could tell he really cared about me!

Got My DUI Dismissed
Thank goodness I found Mr. Laybourne. He got my DUI dismissed at trial! He kept me informed during the whole process, and it was clear that he knew everything there was to know about this area of the law.

Thank You Brad Laybourne
I hired Brad to represent my son, It was a criminal defense case. Brad went above and beyond . He stayed on top of everything all the way through. I also found myself needing representation for a DWAI Brad made short work of it because of his knowledge of the law and the appropriate procedures. I was not convicted of the charges. Brad is very professional and knowledgable, He works hard on his cases and literally goes the extra mile! ***Thank you Brad for everything you have done for us***
