After obtaining a Master’s degree in Psychology (1979) and a Juris Doctor (1981) at the University of Colorado in Boulder, I worked for a large insurance law firm in downtown Denver before discovering that I wanted to represent “the little guy” in litigation. Now, I practice exclusively in the area of disability law, including short & long term disability policies under ERISA, which governs employer and union disability plans, and Social Security disability claims, trials and appeals. I have represented hundreds of disability claimants before the United States District Court and the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. I have been a member for 34 years in the Colorado Bar Association, active on several bar association committees, and I am a member of the National Organization of Social Security Claim Representatives and the Faculty of Federal Advocates. I’ve given presentations on disability matters to civic organizations. I have served as an officer in political campaigns, am very active in my church, and spent 5 years as a member of the Jeffco Scientific Cultural Facilities District. I’m also happily married and the father of 4 wonderful children.
I am one of a handful of lawyers in Colorado with heavy experience in representing claimants in the ERISA field against national law firms who represent the huge disability insurance companies.
Our firm has handled literally thousands of disability claims over the past 30 years and, therefore, we have an established system for filing and litigating disability claims. We send out questionnaires to your doctors. We gather your medical records. I personally review all medical records and forms completed by doctors before these are filed. We help you with completing questionnaires, educate you about how to communicate with your doctors, and prepare you for SSA and other medical exams and for trial testimony. We want to talk to you at least once a month. Best of all, I have a compassionate, knowledgeable and efficient staff.
