Serving as a Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer

So, you want to know about me?  Well, in short, I’m a feisty, red-headed, nerdy, dog & toddler mom, with a variety of legal experience who’s actually a PERSON (human first, then attorney) and who wants to GENUINELY HELP her clients.  I own two companies in Colorado.  I enjoy long walks in the mountains (they’re called hikes in Colorado) and am horse-crazy.  I’m active on social media (#OfficeDogs & #NotYourAverageLawyer) and you can legit internet-stalk me @Justie4Justice on various platforms.  I’m constantly striving to make things easier for my clients–whether it’s from an affordability standpoint (I take payments, yo), or trying to minimize the consequences to you in court–your problems become my problems when you hire Nicol Gersch Law Offices.  Multiple clients have called me “personable” (i.e. I’m an average Joe/Jane?, with common sense), “approachable,” and “the best communicator.”  I take pride in implementing #LegalTech to help keep clients’ costs down.

Read on to learn more about the firm, what kinds of cases we can help you with, and learn more about my professional bio.  (Disclaimer: this paragraph is not a sample of my legal writing).  Come get to know me, and let Nicol Gersch Petterson get to work for you.

Nicol Gersch Petterson

You have several cases throughout Greenwood Village? Let me help on all of them! You live in a rural area in Colorado? No problem! I travel to legal clients throughout nearly a quarter of the state of Colorado. You’re not sure what category of law you need help with? No big deal! I practice criminal defense on a number of different types of cases. I sought out experience in many different legal practice areas in order to prepare for solo practice at my own law firm. I also have a large network of attorneys to whom I can refer cases. You wonder if a law firm is a reputable business?  I have Accounting and Political Science degrees through the Honors Program at Colorado State University, so I know what it takes to run my own business. Founding Nicol Gersch Petterson has been a long-term business plan for me for decades. Nicol Gersch Petterson emphasizes that no two cases are the same. Each case will receive personalized attention and zealous advocacy from our team.
