Fort Collins Medical Malpractice Lawyer

Overview

I became a lawyer after performing public interest work for many years in which I was an advocate for people in my community. In doing that work, I fought against those far more wealthy and more powerful. My purpose in becoming a lawyer was to become a better advocate for people who are up against big government, big insurance companies, and big business.

My goal first and foremost is to give you good advice...

I became a lawyer after performing public interest work for many years in which I was an advocate for people in my community.

My purpose in becoming a lawyer was to become a better advocate for people who are up against big government, big insurance companies, and big business.

My goal first and foremost is to give you good advice. From the first time you speak with me, I want you to feel comfortable that you can trust me and you will hear the honest truth. If I agree to represent you, then we are a partnership and I value your opinions and will work just as hard as I can to bring you the best resolution possible.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
