"Team FGMC"

Foster Graham is both a law firm, and a vibrant community of lawyers, paralegals, secretaries, women, men, law clerks and more.  FGMC is vocationally home to Democrats, Republicans, Libertarians, etc. who have many philosophies that find room under one roof.  The firm, including all of its personnel with differing backgrounds, interests, and diverse areas of expertise, all fit under the "team umbrella" each day - the goal and emphasis of every employee and principal of the firm is to serve the best interests of the client. 


Advocating and consulting for civil, criminal, tax, estate and different commercial, business, trial and appellate matters are not hampered by our varying life experiences.  If there is some disagreement with a client's philosophy, the firm's individual predilections are put aside for the good of the client.  Hopefully, the positive goals we seek for our client will mirror the incoming political team's stated goals to serve the best interests of our country. 


What is best for our client can only be accomplished by hardworking efforts to advise, advocate, negotiate and fairly resolve their legal and disputed matters.  This year's election results will test the profound boundaries surrounding many segments of our society.  I, for one, cannot predict the future or opine like the pundits about what the country's future may hold in light of the political winds of change.  However, I know one thing for sure.  FGMC is not a red or blue firm.  There is no change on this firm's agenda.  It has been and will remain dedicated to the best interests of each and every client who gives us the privilege and responsibility to protect their interests.  I hope that the coming year brings peace and prosperity for our country.  


We pledge to all a continuing commitment to every client by every member of this firm.  Each lawyer, paralegal, secretary, receptionist of FGMC should be optimistic about the firm's future.  They are a part of a good, ethical law firm who understands the best interests of our clients is our platform.  Dedication to hard work and commitment for our client is our political correctness.  We are partisans for our clients.

The alcohol beverage landscape is undergoing significant changes in Colorado in the coming years, particularly regarding package liquor sales.  Colorado has two licenses permitting the package sale of beer, wine, and spirits: the Liquor-Licensed Drugstore; and the Retail Liquor Store.  In addition, Colorado is among a handful of states that continue to license Fermented Malt Beverages, more commonly known as 3.2% Beer or "near" beer. 


In November of 2015, more than 100 Canyon City High School students were implicated in a so-called "sexting" scandal that sent a jolt through the small town, located about 115 miles south of Denver. Through a series of events, authorities determined that students were exchanging and saving nude photographs of other students on their cell phones using innocent-looking applications known as a "photo vault." Because the photographs depicted kids under the age of 18, the distribution and possession of the pictures was illegal under Colorado's child pornography laws.


Choosing the right construction contractor can be the difference between the beautiful remodel you've always dreamed of and years of expensive, stressful and protracted litigation. Aside from choosing a doctor (check their license history with DORA!), choosing a contractor can be one of the most important selections you make. Below are suggestions to help you find a qualified reputable contractor.
