About Us

Our Mission

To provide exceptional representation for our clients through direct, honest communication and a thoughtfully executed plan.


Our Approach How we’re different

It is a privilege to represent the injured. Our clients are more than cases. We know they struggle to pay medical bills while also missing paychecks. We listen to our clients. We help them get back on their feet. Many of our attorneys used to work for insurance companies. We know what to expect. We know the insurance company’s playbook, and we know how to win. Our clients meet directly with senior attorneys. We provide straightforward advice in face-to-face meetings. If the settlement is in a client’s best interest, we will secure a favorable settlement. If the settlement is unfair, we can succeed at trial. The insurance company has a plan for your injury claim. You need one too. Together we take on the insurance company and win.

Our Values

  • Personal


    Some people meet their lawyer for the first time on the day they go into court. We work with you right away. The first meeting you have will be with an attorney, and an attorney will be with you throughout your case. It is personal for us. We listen to our clients and respect their decisions while providing them with exceptional legal advice. We know the consequences of an accident affect more than just the injured person. An injury disrupts families, workplaces, and the community as a whole. We make legal decisions with the client's best interests in mind and talk with them often to determine the best course of action.

  • Community driven

    Community Driven

    Our roots are in Northern Colorado. This is where we raise our children, where our families live, and where we plan to stay. We know the local courts and what resonates with juries. Although we are local, we have the firepower to go up against the big guys. Our lawyers have argued cases against large corporations across the United States, in both federal and state courts. But what gives us the most satisfaction is helping our neighbors and providing them with exceptional representation.

  • honest


    From decades of experience, our lawyers have the ability to fairly evaluate each case. We determine the likelihood of settlement and a fair settlement amount. If a case goes to trial, we carefully advise our clients as to the likelihood of success and the possible result. Some injuries are so severe that they settle for millions of dollars. Others are not. We respect our clients, so we tell them the truth, even when it isn't easy.


I knew I was in the hands of an expert. The team seemed very collaborative and at one point I thought, "that’s why you hire a firm." Just having them in my corner made me sleep better through a tough process.

Gordon Hadfield has been a life saver, navigating a lengthy personal injury case so I could focus on recovering from a life-threatening vehicle vs. bicycle crash. He thoroughly understands the laws involved and explains them, and the whole process, in layman's terms. I sincerely appreciate how he advises yet allows me to remain in charge of how I'd like the case to proceed.

They explained the process, the law, my options and walked me thru the entire ordeal. They were professional, courteous, and always available to answer my questions. I am so very grateful for all their expertise in assisting me.

I always knew exactly what was going on in the case, and I had complete confidence that Shannon was getting me the best possible outcome. The insurance settlement was complete in four months. I would unhesitatingly recommend Shannon for any personal injury claim. She is straightforward and frank, and she is a bulldog — just the qualities I want in an attorney!
— David H.
