Top Attorneys in Colorado Springs

If you were charged with a crime, you would readily understand your immediate need:  to call an attorney in order to avoid criminal sanctions.

But what if your employer unlawfully fires you, you suffer an injury from a defective product, or your soon-to-be former spouse has abruptly decided to take more than his/her fair share of  your joint assets? In these cases, it may be worth your time and expense to retain legal counsel to evaluate your situation and advise you on alternate courses of action.

It never hurts to speak with an attorney - and it may be the best thing you can do if confronted with a legal problem you can’t resolve.

On the following pages is a list of Colorado Springs Style’s 2015 Top Attorneys, as deemed outstanding by their peers. They are but a sampling of the dedicated individuals practicing law in our community.

Who conducted the survey?

Colorado Springs Style, working in association with the El Paso County Bar Association, conducted the survey.

Who was surveyed?

Approximately 1,100 licensed attorneys in El Paso County were invited via email to complete the survey, with electronic reminders sent by the El Paso County Bar Association encouraging participation. In addition, attorneys were asked to forward the online voting information to their colleagues.

What instructions were they given in order to complete the survey?

Voting was held online from September 29 through October 8, 2014. Attorneys who visited the site were instructed to enter the name of one nominee in each specified field. All attorneys who are members of the El Paso County Bar Association in good standing were available for selection. Voting was limited to attorneys only; all other votes were discounted.

Did attorneys only vote for individuals outside their specified fields of law?

No. Attorneys could vote across the board.

Are the attorneys listed in any particular order?

The attorneys are listed by their specified fields of law in alphabetical order.

Were respondents allowed to make comments?

This is a straight listing; therefore no comments were allowed to influence the final list.

How is this an objective listing?

The field of law is a profession that relies heavily on attorneys referring to one another. Peer review is a very effective method of determining who is outstanding in the field, since it’s based on the opinions of those in the know: their colleagues.

Was any additional research done on those nominated?

Once the ballots were complete, each nominee was carefully evaluated on the basis of the survey results, the legitimacy of their license, and their current standing with the El Paso County Bar Association.

Can attorneys pay to be on The List?

No compensation of any kind is taken from attorneys in return for being included in The List, nor were attorneys paid for their participation in the survey.
