We endeavor to provide our clients with a fresh, practical, and meaningful approach to the law. As a boutique law firm, we understand the challenges and obstacles involved with running a business, managing employees, and staying in compliance with the vast array of federal, state and local employment laws, rules and regulations, as well as keeping up with the twists and turns of emerging technology. It’s not easy being a business owner, executive or manager in today’s world. You want to grow your business. You want to focus on the passion that led you to take the risk to build a business and ensure its growth. You don’t want to be bogged down with employment-related problems. We want to help you protect what you have built.  Our goal is to help alleviate the burden of employment claims, both proactively and, if necessary, as our client's champion should litigation arise.

At the onset of every new matter, we utilize our breadth of training and experience to develop a strategy for each client that is unique, results-oriented, and cost-effective. We also work closely with each client to determine how best to handle each unique matter, whether it be on an hourly or alternative fee basis. In addition, we pride ourselves on communication, client empowerment through knowledge exchange and education, and the development of long-lasting relationships.

We also care about the environment - we have a paperless office.  We love our pets - they are family to us and we welcome dogs at our dog-friendly offices. We believe in integrity and professionalism - the Attorney’s Oath means something to us. And, last but not least, we want our clients to feel satisfied that their legal costs provided value.  Every client of Gokenbach Law, LLC has access to their secure client file via an online 24/7 client portal.  We also maintain a widely-read legal blog with information applicable to employers in Colorado and beyond – Colorado Employer’s Law Blog (, and welcome all with interest in management-side employment law topics to join the conversation on the firm’s Twitter page: @employmentlawUS
