It is with mixed feelings that I announce the closure of Spencer Law Firm. I have accepted a position as a judge with the Colorado Office of Administrative Courts. Although I am excited about this new opportunity, I will miss helping clients like you.


Colorado law prohibits a judge from continuing to practice law in any capacity. As much as I would like to see your case to conclusion, I simply cannot do so. I will be closing my practice and withdrawing from all my cases. I wish I could meet with you to discuss this, but I cannot do that in the limited time I have left.


To minimize the disruption to your claim, I have made arrangements to sell my practice and transfer your case to the law firm of my longtime colleagues, Paul Haller and Doug Weddell. Paul and Doug are excellent attorneys who have represented injured workers for more than 25 years. I know from experience that they know the law very well, and are respected by judges and attorneys on both sides. They also care deeply about their clients, and will be strongly committed to getting you the best possible outcome on your case. Paul and Doug have hired my assistant, Cindy Penchoff, who you have worked with and know well. She will help you have a smooth transition to their firm.


If you are a current client, I have sent you a letter explaining the next steps. If you have not received your letter yet, please call the office to let us know.
