As a child, I enjoyed a television program called Judd, for the Defense which was based on high-profile lawyers of the time. Judd would take on controversial cases across the country that other attorneys wouldn’t do and I couldn’t help but be drawn to the reality of the entertainment. And this was the springboard for my interest in a legal career.
When I went to college, I made the decision to pursue a law degree and committed to that career path. After completing my undergrad in History and Political Science, I was accepted to Washburn University School of Law in Texas where I graduated with my J.D. in 1982.
After I graduated and passed the bar exam, there weren’t many legal jobs available as Texas was experiencing an oil bust so there weren’t many jobs, period. I was fortunate to find and connect with another lawyer who had office space and was willing to mentor me so I could go out on my own. Since 1983, I’ve owned and operated Paul T. Amundson, Attorney at Law and worked as a solo practitioner— eventually moving my practice from Texas back home to Colorado.
I truly enjoy helping my clients get their lives back in order after a legal issue leaves things feeling messy.
