I have been practicing law in Colorado and Maine for over 41 years. During this time the majority of my practice has consisted of civil litigation representing both individuals and businesses in most types of construction and commercial disputes, including contract disputes, securities fraud cases, personal injury suits, civil rights litigation and professional negligence actions. My goal has been and remains to provide to every client the highest level of individual attention that each client deserves and expects.

As a lawyer and advocate for my clients, I strive to provide every client with aggressive personalized representation, as well as sophisticated, high quality legal services representing individuals and corporations in complex civil litigation in state and federal court. A large percentage of my practice comes from other law firms which do not have the staff or capabilities to handle long, complex, document intensive litigation. In these cases, I always protect and maintain the relationship between the referring attorney and his or her client.

As an attorney who has devoted over forty-one years to dispute resolution, I am firmly committed to resolving disputes through the use of pre-filing mediation. For those circumstances where dispute resolution is not successful either pre- or post-filing, I personally handle the ensuing litigation.

I have tried several hundred bench and jury trials over the past fourty-one years. When a client retains my firm and a trial is necessary, I am the attorney that tries the case. I have always been and remain committed to the principal that when a client retains my law firm, the client retains me personally. I provide a full range of legal services for the resolution of commercial and construction disputes, ranging from the resolution of simple contract cases to complex commercial, construction and professional negligence claims. My goal is to obtain a resolution of your matter as quickly, efficiently and cost effectively as possible.

I have possessed a Martindale-Hubbell™ AV Preeminent Rating for the past 20+ years. I personally handle every aspect of my clients’ cases, from the initial consultation through to resolution. I work with a team of qualified assistants and never pass cases off to less experienced junior lawyers. When my assistants are utilized, it is in areas in which they are specifically trained to provide the client with the most cost efficient services.
