Baumgartner Law, LLC
Birk Baumgartner is by far the best attorney I have ever worked with. I trust Birk with not only my life, but also my child's life and truly cannot say enough good things about him or thank him enough for his help. Birk is professional, ethical, knowledgeable and explains everything very well. He is happy to answer as many questions as you may have to ensure you understand your choices and the potential outcomes. He has a personal investment in each case that is rare with attorneys, and despite the fact that he's a very busy man he always makes you feel like a priority. Birk knows the law extremely well, and spends an extraordinary amount of time researching case law and preparing for every possible scenario. He was always two steps ahead of me with everything, and had thought of all the crazy scenarios I asked him about well in advance of me even thinking to ask. He is prepared, organized and goes above and beyond what is expected of him by his client. He's also personable and I felt comfortable sharing very private details with him because he is easy to talk to, even about the most difficult things. There's not a single bad thing I can say about Birk and I can't say enough positive things to really explain how fantastic he is. But if you are looking for an attorney who will fight your case as if it were his own life on the line, Birk Baumgartner is the one you should hire. He not only won my cases for me but got me more than I ever anticipated. Even if he hadn't won, my trust and confidence in him would still remain the same because if he couldn't do it then no one could. Knowing I had Birk in my corner made an almost unbearably stressful situation manageable and I never doubted his ability to achieve the best outcome possible for me. He completely exceeded my expectations and I am eternally grateful for his hard work and dedication.

D. Russman Joel Attorney At Law
First - I have to comment on the 2 negative reviews. I know no one is perfect but those reviews are 100% contrary to the Joel Russman I have known for years.I was first referred to Joel 8 years ago when I was purchasing my home (my first in CO) and needed an attorney to review the contract. I'm originally from Chicago where all real estate transactions involve attorneys. My attorney had to be out of the country at the last minute and couldn't help me. Joel came as a referral from a trusted friend. I wanted him to review the real estate contract even though he explained (for free) that CO has standardized contracts for home purchases and I didn't really need him to review it. He was clear, concise and fair in his pricing and he has a great sense of humor.Since then, Joel has been an invaluable asset in dealing with a crazy neighbor in both criminal and personal injury cases (the crazy neighbor harassing and then trying to sue me and my partner). He worked with my insurance company's attorney seamlessly when that attorney was assigned to defend us in the personal injury suit filed by the neighbor. And his rates were beyond fair, not to mention that he again brought his compassion and humor to a tough situation that put me at ease. I can't tell you how important it is to have an attorney who treats you like a human being when you are being threatened, stalked and sued by someone who is crazy. The stress is through the roof, yet Joel is calm and kind.He's also been a valuable consult in reviewing my rental lease agreements for my tenants and offering valuable insight. Joel has a strong moral compass, charges reasonable rates and gets the job done after walking through all of the alternatives. I would recommend Joel to anyone who wants a quality attorney who cares about his clients.

Swenson Law Office PC
I have known Christine Swenson for few years now, first as an interpreter for Christine while she was working through RMAIN as a volunteer attorney helping a client through some difficult times. Christine then told me about her work at Mi Casa in Denver, Colorado where she also offers clients expert legal advice pro-bono. I knew immediately that Christine was an attorney dedicated to helping her clients through the maze of the U.S. legal system, and with Christine both the paying clients and the clients she works with pro-bono receive the same expert attention. Further, I have had the privilege of listening to Christine during the many educational seminars she has given take her audience step by step through the immigration process in such a way that even with the most complicated issues, all had a better understanding.Not only does Christine draw on her extensive trial court knowledge as on former Deputy District Attorney and former law professor, Christine makes it part of her routine to keep up with all the details of the ever changing immigration issues and to put her clients at ease, Christine also speaks Spanish. Immigration law is extremely complicated and from what I have witnessed first-hand, Christine Swenson is the Immigration Attorney of choice.David Martin TuckerSpanish Interpreterhttp://www.spanishdavid.com

Tony Jarrett Attorney at Law
Excellent job in court last week! It is nervewracking dealing with the emotional drama and uncertainty of going to court. I lost sleep, lost focus on other activities and worried constantly about losing my children or not getting enough financial assistance from my ex (who makes 4 times my income). My husband would not settle on anything and I honestly started buying into his threats that I would get nothing and he would get the kids half the time. My attorney was Tony Jarrett. I felt like Mr. Jarrett understood what I was going through and knew what I needed. He was dominant in the courtroom. His objections were sustained. His points were well taken by the judge. He was much more prepared than my husband's attorney. The orders that were handed down were very fair and almost exactly what I had proposed at mediation. My husband turned red with anger as the judge read the order and then he bolted out of the courthouse without even talking to his attorney. If your divorce is stressful or full of conflict, you need an attorney who is strong in the courtroom and who will give you sound advice along the way. I highly recommend my attorney to anyone.

The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm
Paul Wilkinson was not only a great attorney his staff was courteous and helpful when I had questions about my case and when I needed to talk to Paul he had no problem getting on the phone. I've had several attorneys in my life and I have to say this was the friendliest and most attentive law firm and attorney I've ever had. No one wants to get in car accidents and if I never have to go through that again I'll die a happy man but if the worst happens I will only be going to one law firm, Paul Wikinson. Paul had no problem taking time to explain our options, what he could and could not do and give me the ability to choose what I want to do with my case. My wife and I owe him a lot and thanks to him we got back on track even after the persons that hit us insurance company refused to acknowledge that they were their client; Paul took care of that quick. I have been sending anyone I know to Paul if they have a car accident and all are happy with him and his law firm. I read that first reviewer and I cannot find any people with "similar experiences" to them, don't believe the tripe, only Paul will win your fight!

I highly recommend Abrams & Associates. They are skilled lawyers and produce great results. This is truly an exceptional law firm and Mr. Abrams is a very capable lawyer.Abrams & Associates is a small firm, but they make up for it through their aptitude, efficiency and experience. Their expertise is apparent in their practice and in the results they produced for me. Mr. Abrams was very hands on in my case and consulted with me about every decision. He is a great communicator and always guided me in understanding the legal process in my case. In my construction defect case and underlying insurance bad faith lawsuit, Mr. Abrams worked to get me and my wife excellent settlement money. We completely fixed our home and paid all of our attorney’s fees and had money left over. Great Result Mr. Abrams!!Abrams & Associates, LLC is a great law firm that I recommend and would work with again on any real estate, construction or business issues.

The Paul Wilkinson Law Firm
My name is Leslie. My daughter was in a car accident and hurt very badly. Rebecca and Paul have been wonderful to her. unfortunately I have known my share of lawyers and I have to say this is the best experience I have ever had. The staff at the office are great. Both Rebecca and Paul treated us like we were great friends. They were respectful, helpful and always put my daughters needs first. Rebecca calls just to see how she is doing. Both have given her great advice not just as lawyers but as people who care and want to see her succeed. Whenever we are at the office Paul always greets us and makes sure we are comfortable. I have referred my Brother to The Wilkinson Law Firm and have been told nothing but good things from him about Rebecca and Paul. Thanks to Rebecca and Paul my daughter finally has her life back! Thank You so much guys! I will always refer everyone to you. Please use me as a reference. I wish you did all Law so i wouldn't have to go anywhere else! Leslie Boucher

Tony Jarrett Attorney at Law
I felt I needed to post a review after reading the review on 10/21. I am a real client and my name is Tatia Romero. My attorney was Tony Jarrett and he did a great job. We went to mediation and my husband and I were $300 apart in our child support numbers. I asked my attorney what to do. One of the things he said is that I could pay him several thousand dollars to go to court to get a small benefit or try to work it out so I could save my money and use it on my kids. He suggested we try to work it out. We agreed to use a dollar amount that was $75 less than my number and $225 more than my husband's number. I felt like it was a fair deal and I saved thousands of dollars. My attorney was looking out for my best interests and was not after my money. To the person below me, there is way more to your story and you are lying about our attorney's intentions and ability. I give a triple thumbs up to my attorney. I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Solomon & Associates CPA
Mr. Solomon did an excellent job in handling an unfortunate situation in my life. Over the span of 3-4 months Mr. Solomon took care of all aspects of my case at a fair price and was in constant contact with me making sure I was both updated on the situation and that any concerns were alleviated. After my sentencing concluded with the minimum charges possible (an overall success), I was under probation and facing conditions from a private probation company that I did not feel were fair or court ordered. Mr. Solomon returned to my defense after the initial case had concluded, writing a motion to dismiss these conditions and representing me in front of the judge again in a one time free of charge appearance The judge agreed with us in this instance and due to the help provided by Mr. Solomon these unjust conditions were considered unlawful. I highly recommend Mark Solomon to anyone needing legal representation in his field of expertise in Colorado.

Law Offices of M. Colin Bresee
Colin is an excellent, highly ethical and aggressive attorney. Once he was convinced that I’m innocent of heinous false allegations that came from what seems to be my ex-wife, he vigorously defended me like a champ. He wouldn’t care about anything except giving me my life back and prove that I’m innocent. His skills in the court room and in writing aggressive motions are undisputable. He would bend any lair witness on the witness stand in a blink of an eye. But he also understands the politics of our justice system, and avoids putting his client at risk even if there is 1% chance for risk. He is an expensive attorney, but money was the last thing I needed to think about when I was facing these immoral and vicious allegations during a divorce and custody battle. His entire office staff is excellent and was very supportive during this tough time. I’d recommend Colin in the high profile cases, and wouldn’t trust anybody else, but him.
Tips & Advices
When it comes time to choose a lawyer, you should start by searching close to home. If you do have attorneys you are familiar with, ask who they believe would be best for you. After going through personal references - especially from individuals who had similar needs - you should broaden your search through public information resources. You can call your area's attorney referral service or check legal organizations like Martindale-Hubbell. There are other resources available online, such as yellowpages.com. You can check websites for client reviews and other third-party forms of approval.
If you sign documents and you come across a word you don't recognize, or you need help to navigate important employment or real estate paperwork. Also, during times when personal matters intersect with legal proceedings, you might need to have an advocate to prevent your emotions from getting in the way. If you've been accused of a crime or are in a terrible financial situation, you can find an attorney who will work with what you have available.
When you hire a lawyer, you're agreeing to work with someone over a certain period of time. The more forthcoming the lawyer appears to be with individual needs, the better.
  • You need to ask questions about how the attorney will communicate with you and what responsibilities you hold in the relationship.
  • The attorney should let you know the best channel for quick communication and you need to inform him or her when you want updates.
  • You should also ask questions to get to know the attorney as an individual in order to ensure this is a person you can trust. Ask about their legal philosophy and how he or she views the lawyer/client relationship. Ask as how to keep fees down or what daily disruptions you should expect from a long legal battle.
You need to ask about every possible fee that will come up when working with an attorney. You should request a list of all costs in advance so you won't be surprised by additional expenses like overhead. Also determine exactly when you will start being billed. You want to inspect paperwork carefully. If the attorney charges you for his or her experience, you need to make sure he or she will perform tasks personally and not hand it off to an assistant. Find out if the attorney has a flat fee or charges by the hour. Many civil lawyers work on contingency. Make inquiries about how the lawyer plans to provide service for your money and what you can do if you start to feel unsatisfied with his or her performance.
You can ask how many similar cases they have handled and if they have special skills or training that applies specifically to your needs. Lawyers can't mention clients by name, but you should ask for basic details about identical past cases. You should check their office for the appropriate certifications and diplomas. You can also ask how long he or she has practiced law and request information that demonstrates the practice's success. Look for precise details such as percentage of cases settled out of court.
