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.

My Educational Background

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.

Opening My Own Firm

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.

Experienced Bankruptcy & Family Law Attorney

My initial start in the legal field was helping clients with their family law matters and wills and trusts. I enjoyed learning about bankruptcy law in school, so I decided to pursue that area of law as well to serve more people and grow my business. I was surprised to find a lot of overlap between bankruptcy and family law issues, and regardless of what a client seeks my services for— I’m prepared to help them through their situation.

With over 35 years of experience as a bankruptcy and family law attorney, I have the skills and experience to help my clients take control of their legal situation and find a way forward. I understand that life has a way of bringing unexpected challenges and circumstances that you may need help working through.
