In addition, he has been involved in hundreds of bankruptcy filings, both while working for himself as well as of-counsel for one of Colorado’s largest bankruptcy firms.

Erik developed his client-first approach at a young age while working in the restaurant industry. He now looks to exceed client expectations in every case through excellent, thoughtful work product and unsurpassed customer service. 

Erik has a long track record of pro-bono public legal service, gaining him recognition in both Colorado and Washington states, including the 2014 Pro Bono Attorney of the year award for the Colorado legal aid project.

Phenomenal, Respectful, and Professional
Erik is an amazing lawyer, and human. He was an excellent guide through my legal process and represented me truthfully, and faithfully. He took the time to understand the situation I had put myself in and still represented my best interests on both legal and moral grounds!! Highly professional, Erik made sure that all parties involved were respected and arrived at an agreement that worked for those affected. He was responsive, and available to answer all questions and to ensure that I understood every aspect of my case. I can not recommend Erik highly enough. He is fantastic!

Great business attorney
As a small business owner, it's easy to feel helpless when someone takes advantage of you. I contacted Erik with a concern about a client who was past due on a large bill. Erik and his team not only responded timely (which put my fears at ease), he had deliberate and thoughtful options for me to pursue. Within days, the issue was resolved, and I received payment in full thanks to his work. I love how his website says that he'll go to war for you, because as a small business owner, that's all you could hope for.

Erik is the man!
I contacted Erik at Halverson Law to assist me with a dispute I had with an unethical business. Erik was not only responsive & attentive, he handled my dispute in record time. Erik is results-driven and I’m incredibly thankful for his services. I highly recommend Halverson Law Firm!!

Exceptional Representation
Three years ago, my family and I went through one of the most devastating experiences of our lives. We were hit by a drunk driver, and suffered an immeasurable amount of physical pain and emotional distress. I knew that we were going to have to find a lawyer, and this was something I was dreading. You want someone you trust, respect, & know will have your family's best interest at heart. I found all of these qualities in Erik. He helped my family and me through his thoroughness, timely responses, and constant accountability with everyone involved in the process. He had amazing communication & was always willing to answer questions and make us feel valued. One comment he made to me really stuck with me. There were times where I reached out to him numerous times throughout this process, and apologized for checking up on the progress of our case. I stated that I know we aren't his only clients, but I appreciated him always getting back to me. And his response was, "I'm your only lawyer though." That simple phrase speaks volumes about Erik's character. He is exceptional at handling numerous tasks, and making you feel like you are a priority. I will forever be grateful for what he did for my family and can say with confidence that he got the absolute best results, and then some. He exceeded our expectations, and gave me peace of mind. Thank you Erik, we are forever grateful!

Erik has helped me on 2 separate cases
Erik did an awesome job on my last case! We didn't just win, we dominated the court room! He is helping me now on a more simple case and it's nice to know that on this case and anything that May come in the future, I just don't have to worry about things. He has been fair with his bill and he does what he says he's going to do. I I am lucky to have met Erik!

Focused and Aggressive
"An aggressive, lucid, erudite and focused young lawyer. Erik is a bastion of the profession. We are a national retailer with sales of $25 million across 38 businesses and within 13 states. We used him in a terribly challenging corporate suit and he and his team ended up with a totally acceptable settlement, with which we were delighted. Utterly recommended."

Great Lawyer, Amazing Guy
After being involved in a fairly significant car accident, I was on the search for an attorney to help me through the process. I met with a couple of big firms and they just seemed very impersonal and as if I would just be a number not necessarily a client. Finally I was referred to Erik, he was extremely polite, patient and knowledgeable. I signed up with him the same day and couldn't be happier. It was everything I expected and more. He was thorough, had excellent communication, and never was to busy to answer my questions. Not to mention the outcome far exceeded my expectations. Hiring Erik was the best decision I made after my accident and I will refer him to everyone I know. Thank you very much Erik.

Erik went above and beyond the whole experience
I was referred to Erik by a friend of mine who was in a car accident. I had just been hit by a car while road biking so he knew Erik would be a right fit for me. From the moment I met him, he put my mind at ease and showed a lot of integrity and knowledge. He kept on the insurance company and kept me informed the whole step of the way. I've worked with other lawyers and none of them made me feel like they cared about me like Erik did. Through my experience I not only found an awesome lawyer, but in the end a great friend too! Thanks for everything Erik!

Current car accident client.
Erik has been absolutly wonderful through out my whole process of my case. He has made sure to answer all of my questions and I have never had to talk to his PA unless he is not there. Erik has a really warm heat and really wants to help. He is young but don't let that fool you he knows what he's doing no matter what the case is. I know from personal experience that he is a wonderful lawyer and exceeds my expectations every time I speak with him. Thank you Erik you have been the best.

VERY THOROUGH
I really enjoyed having Erik help me with my case. I didn't think I had a case but a friend said to chat with Erik. He is warm and personable and I immediately was confident with his abilities. He listened to what I said, and kept me informed throughout the process. He paid attention to the small ways my accident affected my life. I am very happy with how my case turned out; I will recommend this man.

Excellent experience
I highly recommend Erik Halverson for representation in legal matters. He was willing to take my case when other attorneys would not. He kept me informed, required little to no work on my part, and resolved the conflict in a timely manner. He is knowledgeable, professional, and easy to work with.

Car wreck resolved quickly
I was involved in a terrible accident in which my car was totaled and the other driver's insurance proceeded to fight the case. I had never gone through anything like this before and was terrified as what to do next. I was referred to Erik by my prior attorney. He was by far the easiest lawyer to talk to and helped to prepare my case much more quickly than I had expected. Erik took the time to understand me and my money situation and knew that I needed results right away. He was able to get my bills paid and put money in my pocket for my time and stress. Erik is a great lawyer. I would definitely hire him again.

Helped me out every step of the way with bankrupcy
Erik really took the time to communicate what my options were. I was pretty much lost in the dark with my situation and Erik helped me every step of the way. Considering my circumstances it couldn't have gone any better. I highly recommend Erik.

Endorse Erik
Litigation Attorney | Jan 23
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I have known Eric for many years. We first met while handling an extremely complicated matter as co-counsel. He immediately impressed me with his ability to communicate with the clients, intelligence and creativity. These three qualities, with lawyers, tends to be mutually exclusive traits. I have since spoken on legal panels and CLEs on various legal topics with Eric. I have also been opposite of Mr. Halverson on a number of cases. Each time, his attention to detail and his treatment of law, as an art and science, are apparent. In addition to all this, he has built a tremendous team of litigators and transactional attorneys at his firm, all well respected with a deep knowledge of their niche practice areas. I regularly refer clients to Mr. Halverson and his firm and endorse this lawyer without hesitation."
