Being charged with a crime can turn your world upside down. Everything is at stake: your job, your family, and your freedom. The State can employ countless tactics to convince you to not exercise your Constitutional rights and ultimately make you feel helpless. Let one of Colorado's best criminal defense attorneys, Joe Koncilja, take on the fight and stand between you and the State. Our experienced attorneys all have significant criminal trial experience, and will vigorously defend your rights
Being injured in an automobile accident can be a life-changing experience. Unfortunately, insurance companies take advantage of your vulnerabilities, exploit the advantages they have over you, and try to get you to agree to an inadequate financial settlement. Our experienced attorneys level the playing field and negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf. If an insurance company undervalues your claim, our experienced trial lawyers are not afraid to file suit and litigate the matter to the end. Don't stand alone against multi-billion dollar insurance companies who profit by paying out as little as possible.
One day you are a respected and appreciated employee, the next day you are injured on-the-job and being told that you don't need treatment and to return to work or you will be replaced. Or, you're being told that you weren't really injured at work; it must have happened somewhere else. Unfortunately this happens all too often. No matter how much we love our jobs, our employer is not our family nor our friend. Once you get injured on the job, you are simply a cost to the company and its workers' compensation insurance carrier; a cost they want to minimize. The insurance carriers for employers are all about the bottom-dollar -- your health is not their concern. The State's Workers' Compensation system is complicated and confusing. Let us protect you through the process, ensuring that your medical and lost wage compensation rights are asserted and maximized.
