About Us

Affordable Premium Legal Services

Attorney Robert Ernesto Walsh, along with Senior Associates Robert Shikiar, Jerry Lopez, and Brian Clark, and our community-focused law firm, provide high-quality legal services for English and Spanish-speaking clients, with offices in Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

In addition, we offer income-based assistance with legal fees. Request a consultation and see if you qualify for reduced rates.

We believe that no one deserves to be without legal services simply because they cannot afford most attorneys’ fees, or because they do not qualify for state-sponsored indigent services.
