Mark and Vance are current members of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and the Denver Bar Association. They have been listed in the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys 10 Best Attorneys, America’s Top 100 Attorneys, and The American Society of Legal Advocates Top 10 Litigation Attorneys. Mark is involved in coaching youth sports and the Denver Boys and Girls club and Vance is on the board of directors for the Chris Rule Foundation and Fred Tesone Alumni Foundation.

Starting their own firm would mean they would have the freedom to choose who they wanted as clients, and what cases they wanted to take on. They also both believed that they could take what they had learned at prior firms and expand on it, creating a better and more efficient practice.
