About Alan

Learn Alan’s areas of practice.

Thanks for visiting me on this site.  I respectfully suggest that sites such as this are not the best way for potential clients to evaluate the effectiveness of any lawyer and "rankings" are extremely hard to evaluate.  Let me give you an example....you pick the highest ranked lawyer at the biggest top firm in the area for your small business counseling needs.  What do you get?  First, a bill that is so high you won't be able to continue operating your small business and second, a lawyer that despite is top ranking perhaps has little understanding of the small business environment you are operating in.  The result - killer bills and bad advice.

 

What people in need of legal services should do is contact several lawyers in the practice and geographical area in which they are seeking services and speak with several lawyers.  Even ask other lawyers about other lawyers or ask other clients of the lawyer how things went and if you would recommend the lawyer. I have been practicing for more than 15 years in the heart of Aspen, Colorado and have successfully represented clients world-wide in a variety of areas in both Colorado and also in New York where I am also a member of the bar.  I am very visible in Aspen and you should have good luck asking about my professionalism and character.  If you want to discuss your matter, that's simple, I will provide a free hour of consultation to see if I can help you and also for you to see if you would like to work with me.  No pressure and a perfect way for you to evaluate my services.

 

As far as the huge, bold red-letter disciplinary warnings, yes it is true. 10 years ago when I was pretty fresh into my practice I tried to help a client and went into business with him here in Aspen but I forgot to provide a letter to that client to seek independent advice.  I made the mistake, I admitted to it immediately and I took my punishment like a man.  Here is a link to the report from the Colorado Supreme Court...

 

Despite the mark on my record, I am all the better for it and much smarter about business matters and certainly much, much smarter about who I try to help in business.  The New York disciplinary matter is just reciprocal discipline for the same problem in 2003 since I maintain bar admissions in both states.  If you want to know more about it, call me anytime and I will happily explain it to you. 

 

If you are in need of legal services by a Colorado or New York attorney who will fight tooth and nail on your behalf, who has a good background in business counseling, real estate, construction and other areas, who is approachable, friendly and does not overcharge, please give me a call; I would be happy to chat with you to see if I can help.  If I cannot, I will certainly tell you so and help you find a lawyer better suited for your needs.

Minority Corporate Shareholders Assistance
I hired Alan Feldman to represent me in a dispute over my minority shareholder rights and buyout of my stock from my former company which I was the President-CEO. I first met Mr Feldman when he represented a client that my former company had a contractual dispute with. Alan Feldman was tenacious, unrelenting and impressive in his pursuit of winning the case for his client, which he did. He impressed me so much that I was incline to hire him when I was in need of representation for a buyout and protection of my minority stake in the company I had built. If you are in need of an attorney who will not quit, fight hard, pursue every avenue and angle then Alan Feldman would be a great choice. Needless to say, he was able to bring my issue to a timely resolution that I was extremely pleased with and for a very reasonable fee. What more could one ask?

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2007.

Suspension Partially Stayed Placed on Probation issued in CO, 2007
updated on 03/28/2017

Suspension partially stayed means the attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When the attorney returns to practice he or she will be on probation, meaning the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior

Alan's comment: “There is no excuse for violating a rule of ethics. Soon after I became a lawyer I went into business with a client - a client who I helped a lot. before starting the business, a lawyer must provide the client with a letter advising the client to seek independent counsel and more. He had independent counsel on this business but that did not relieve me of my obligation to provide the letter. I admitted my mistake immediately and took my sanction. What a learning experience it was.”
