contract lawCivil Litigation encompasses vast areas of law.

Product Liability

When you purchase a product, you have every right to expect that it is safe. Designers, manufacturers, and retailers of a consumer product have the legal responsibility ensure that safety. When an injury or death occurs because of unreasonable danger, faulty construction, or improper labeling, the law gives the injured person (or their survivor) the right to seek compensation for medical bills, lost wages, long-term care, and pain and suffering. Whether it is a consumer product, children’s toy or an auto defect that has caused you injury, call us to seek remedy.


Individuals and businesses require contracts of all types to function.  To protect yourself and your business dealings, our lawyers can assist you with drafting solid and clear contracts from the start. If a party to a contract fails to honor his or her obligations, we are there to help mitigate the impact, advocate on your behalf to seek a remedy.


Starting a new business or restructuring and existing one in Colorado can present many challenges. Incorporation of that business is wise choice from a legal point of view. By incorporating, you create a separate entity for the business that absorbs the liabilities of the business and protects the assets of the individuals from creditors, accidents and lawsuits. Our attorneys can assist you with all the necessary filings, articles and documents that you need to establish your corporation.
