His practice primarily focuses on defending the trucking industry. He tries to handle every case with solid advocacy, passion, humility, and without excuses. He believes society needs good lawyers, so we resolve our disputes with justice and without violence. Paul became a lawyer because it has a nobler purpose that demands self-sacrifice for his clients. Paul has tried approximately 50 cases in five states, defending complex pre-litigation and litigated matters throughout Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and other states.
