Don has a general practice, primarily representing people, in matters ranging from criminal defense, civil trials, domestic relations, landlord-tenant matters as well as matters involving business formation, wills, trusts, estate planning and probate. Don will guide you through the legal system and help you understand in clear and straight forward language the complexities of your case, and he will help you find solutions that work best for you. 


Don graduated from the University of Denver in 1968 with a B.S.B.A. in accounting, served in the U.S. Army in 1969-1970 and was awarded his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Denver in 1972. He served as the attorney for the students at the University of Northern Colorado from 1972 - 1985 and has been in private practice during that time and to the present. He has tried numerous jury trials and trials to the court.

He was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 1972 and attended advanced training in Trial Advocacy at the National College of Criminal Defense Lawyers and Public Defenders (now the National College of Criminal Defense) in 1975, the National College of Advocacy in 1976, the Advanced Advocacy College in 1977, and the National Institute of Trial Advocacy in 1978.


When he's not busy at the office, Don enjoys being in the mountains, watching the Broncos, swimming, eating carrots and spending time with his family and his two dogs.


What's it like to work with Don?

If you ask him why he's a lawyer, Don will tell you that he likes helping people. Warm, friendly and experienced, Don is a good listener and a great lawyer.


We will ask you to make decisions only after we are certain you have a realistic expectation of the likely outcome. We will never give you a false sense of the end result and although we cannot guarantee the outcome of your case, our experience in the Courtroom since 1972 allows us to give you a very good idea of best case and worst case scenarios.
