ABOUT THOMAS-A personal note...
  • A little about me;  I enjoy keeping active with all the typical Colorado activities, spending time with friends and family, and making occasional jokes about my "pumpkin headed" nephew.
  • I greatly enjoy the practice of law.  Helping people successfully resolve their financial matters and embark upon a fresh start gives me great joy.  Both my father and grandfather practiced medicine, assisting those people who were ill.  While I of course cannot cure the sick, I believe the resolution of difficult legal problems brings a great deal of relief to those burdened by them.
