Areas of Practice

Litigation and Trials

BCL's attorneys handle a wide range of civil litigation in Colorado and Wyoming. We represent individuals, businesses and governmental entities from trial through the appeals process in both state and federal courts.

Every one of the firm's attorneys is an experienced trial lawyer. Firm attorneys have litigated and tried a wide variety of civil cases, including those involving civil rights, personal injury, commercial and business disputes, antitrust, and professional liability. Our attorneys have litigated and tried criminal cases ranging from petty offenses to murder.

Employment Law

BCL is experienced in seeking fair treatment in the work place by assuring employer compliance with state and federal law, including the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. Our attorneys provide legal assistance on behalf of public and private sector employees to assure due process protection and fair and equitable treatment. This representation includes actions resulting from sexual, racial, religious and age discrimination.

Administrative Defense

Firm attorneys work to ensure the fundamental rights of due process for public safety and law enforcement employees by offering defense in disciplinary and termination hearings. The firm is intimately familiar with the disciplinary and administrative appeals process, and prepares each employee's case for administrative hearings and appeals through the judiciary reviews available for individual employees.

Public Safety Employee Defense

The firm focuses its representation on individual officers. While government employers may provide defense in this area, such services are often in conflict with the best interests of the public safety employee. BCL's attorneys act to safeguard the interest of the employee by providing state and federal civil rights defense for claims alleging abuse of authority, excessive force, false arrest and imprisonment, and all other alleged constitutional and civil violations.

Estate Planning

BCL provides legal counseling and services necessary in planning your estate, including the preparation of wills and trusts. We also assist in guardianship and conservatorship matters, and probate administration.
