What We Do
A. Employment Law
One of the many practice areas in which Richard and Jeanine specializes is employment law. Together, they have decades of experience litigating claims involving employment discrimination, retaliation, wrongful discharge, violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, and violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act. Suffering an adverse employment action or being discharged from a job is always stressful and demoralizing. The humiliation of losing a job unfairly, coupled with the daunting task of standing up to a corporation or business that seems to have all of the power, leaves many employees feeling as if they have no recourse for unfair treatment at the hands of their employers. Richard and Jeanine are ready to provide aggrieved employees with the help, advice, and guidance they need in order to obtain the relief they deserve. Call Jeanine or Richard at 720-506-1767 to see if they can help you with your employment law claims.
B. Family Law
A dissolution of marriage or divorce is often the most difficult legal experience a person goes through in his or her life. Jeanine and Richard understand the emotional problems that are inherent in the dissolution of a marriage. They also understand the need for an advocate to represent and assist you so that you will be prepared for the years that follow the divorce. If your marriage is ending, call Jeanine or Richard at 720-506-1767 to see if they can help you.
C. Appellate Law
Winning a case at trial or on summary judgment is not always the end of a lawsuit. The losing party may appeal the case to a higher court, where the issues and focus may change dramatically. Additionally, the appellate courts often present their own complex rules and requirements. Richard is a specialist in the appellate process, and he has helped numerous trial lawyers hold onto, or obtain reversal of, the results at trial. If you have great trial results, but have concern about those results getting reversed on appeal, call Richard at 720-506-1767 to see if he can assist you. Richard will handle cases on an hourly basis, for a flat fee, or in some instances, on a contingency basis.
D. Consumer Protection Law
Unfortunately, consumer fraud has become a growth industry in modern society, as unscrupulous businesses prey on unsuspecting individuals or groups. For years, Jeanine represented the State of Colorado in forcing dishonest companies to comply with the law or to close. Jeanine is now prepared to represent individuals who have been cheated by these same or other business entities. If you have sought help because of debt or lending problems, and you have been charged too much or have not been treated fairly, Jeanine may be able to help you. Call her at 720-506-1766 for a free consultation.

As a result, Jeanine and Richard have the experience, and the skill, to help you with your litigation needs, regardless of the problem or dispute.
