Summary

A notorious night-owl, I am the lead trial lawyer at Otis & Peters, LLC, and the managing member. My practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, probate and trust litigation, and appeals. I routinely handle trials both to a jury and to the court, and have argued appellate cases in the Colorado Court of Appeals, Colorado Supreme Court and the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals. I received my undergraduate degree from the Metropolitan State University of Denver, and law degree from the University of Colorado, where I was a published member of the Colorado Journal of International Law & Policy. I am admitted to practice in Colorado, the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. I am a long-standing member of the board of the Weld County Bar Association, and currently serve as one of its representatives to the Board of Governors of the Colorado Bar Association. I am also a member of the Colorado Bar Association, serving as a District Vice President in 2008-2009 and on the Ethics Committee, the Colorado Womens’ Bar Association, the Larimer County Bar Association, and the Byron White Inn of Court. I previously served as the Weld County Bar Association President from 2010-2011, and was a member of the City of Greeley’s Civil Service Commission from 2005-2011, and served as the Municipal Court Judge for the Town of Kersey from 2004-2011. Widely known for organizing the 19th Judicial District Bench-Bar Committee’s Annual Nuts & Bolts CLE, now in its 10th year, I routinely give presentations on real estate law, business law, and ethics. I also volunteer as a mediator for the Weld County courts, and was the recipient of the Weld County Bar Association’s Andrew Borg Award recognizing pro bono service in 2009. I was named a Rising Star by Colorado Super Lawyers Magazine in both 2011 and 2012, and recently joined the board of CREW Northern Colorado. I was also recently inducted into
