Their trial experiences range from a sterile bull case to decades of litigation over a Mexican Land Grant involving a 75-acre ranch in south central Colorado.

Wolf Slatkin & Madison attorneys have “written the book” on Colorado mechanic’s lien and construction law. In one of their most recent cases they were successful, on behalf of an owner, to defeat a $300,000-plus mechanic’s lien of a subcontractor and had the court even determine that if that subcontractor’s lien had been valid, it came behind a bank’s deed of trust on the commercial property involved. In that case we were additionally able to have the subcontractors pay the owner’s attorney fees because of an excessive mechanic’s lien.

The firm lawyers have handled multi-million dollar land sales, development, financing and leasing transactions. In those cases, firm attorneys have utilized not only their transactional experience, but also their experiences in courtrooms and arbitrations with a view toward understanding, in their transactional work, how judges, juries or arbitrators might react to the language of the legal documents that they negotiate and draft.

Throughout the history of the firm, Wolf Slatkin & Madison attorneys have endeavored to represent their clients’ best interests in achieving their expectations as economically as reasonably possible.
