Work & Study
“The law is surely a practice but it is also a subject, and if it ceases to be a subject … its practice will be diminished. ”
– Prof. Stanley Fish
As a practitioner of the law, I have devoted myself to a life of learning – to careful examination of the positive law as well as the philosophical and jurisprudential underpinnings of our legal system.
As a client, you can be certain that I will dedicate myself to personally knowing your case and will be committed to learning the intricacies of the law in order to authoritatively argue your case.
No attorney can achieve their clients’ goals if they do not know their client. Therefore, above all, we value relationships.
With the Gwinn Law Firm, be assured that your case has not been outsourced to unnamed associates, passed-around, or buried under a mountain of files.
Pick up the phone and expect your attorney to answer. Meeting times are flexible (and even take place after hours or as “house calls”) and you won’t find the office a pretentious turn-off. If an issue comes up on the weekend, let us know.

A Member of the Community
To me, an advocate and protector of the common man, a “country lawyer” in the vein of Andrew Jackson, Clarence Darrow, and Abraham Lincoln has always defined an attorney’s true social role.
This is why I practice several areas of law – and share in a network of trusted colleagues – with the specific goal to help clients with their unique range of legal issues. I located my office in south Denver – amongst merchants, shop keepers, restaurants, bars, and scenic Washington Park – because I want to work where people carry out their lives.
I also value being a part of – and giving back to the – community. I volunteer monthly at the Denver Rescue Mission legal clinic, and am involved in several Bar Association and legal education programs, as well as various civic organizations.
Trust is essential when choosing a lawyer. As your neighbor, I work to earn your trust.

"Just wanted to thank you for meeting me for lunch yesterday. It was nice to put a face to the name and chat a bit in person. I'd also like to thank you for your skill and professionalism on my behalf. It's become clear to me over the past year that you not only excel as an attorney but that you apply your skills with clarity and lucidity. As I'm sure you can tell by now I can be a bit emotional so it means a lot to know I can lean on you to help me see things clearly. Anyway, I'm grateful our paths have crossed and appreciate all you have done and continue to do for me."
"I really appreciate your help. It gave me a comfort level that I would not have had otherwise. I will keep you in mind for the future and am happy to provide a recommendation."
