WWW.CANCUNLAW.COM. With the exception of a few short years, I have spent my entire legal career practicing law in Mexico. I first came to Mexico in 1992 to study Spanish. My plan was to stay six months.
Because this was before the North American Free Trade Agreement went into effect, the Mexican government granted my request for a special permit allowing me to create a Mexican law firm owned outright by U.S. lawyers and allowing it to offer legal services in both U.S. and Mexico law, effectively creating the U.S.-Mexico law industry. Reportedly no more such permits have been granted. All these years later, I am still here, still representing clients in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Tulum, the Riviera Maya, and beyond.
I began my early career in the mountain resort towns of Colorado where I worked as a deputy district attorney for the District Attorney’s Office of the 5th Judicial District. Later I moved to Denver and worked in civil practice representing clients such as the Denver mayor, Denver International Airport, and the Resolution Trust Corporation.
I earned my juris doctorate degree from Denver University in 1987. While studying at DU, I worked in the Denver District Court, the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, and in the Adams County District Court.
