The student-run Trep Cafe, which operated in the Leeds School of Business Koelbel Building for more than 10 years, shut down this summer after its undergraduate managers learned they had to pay $224,200 to the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment for lapses in workers' compensation insurance.
Nonprofit operation cited for not having workers' compensation insurance.
Small businesses in Colorado are facing excessive fines (hundreds of thousands of dollars) for a lapse in workers' compensation insurance coverage.
A law meant to protect workers who get hurt on the job could shut down some small businesses in Colorado. Those businesses are facing massive fines for violations that -- in some cases -- happened years ago.
We are proud to announce that our support of Colorado Veterans Project resulted in a donation of over 27,000 pounds of non-perishable food to Ft. Lyons in our continued support of the Veteran community. Pierce Elliott Law is a staunch supporter of our Veterans and our military community.
Pierce Elliott Law is proud to participate in the Colorado Lawyers for Colorado Veterans monthly Veteran clinics and the Annual Colorado Homeless Veterans Stand Down in 2016. We strongly encourage our Veteran community to take advantage of these opportunities for free or reduced legal advice, in the interest of protecting their legal rights.
This past November 2015, we provided pro bono legal services for homeless veterans and families at the Veterans Stand Down in Denver, Colorado. These Stand Down events are held across the country and provide supplies and services to homeless Veterans, such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings and VA Social Security benefits counseling. Veterans can also receive referrals to other assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling.

Katie and Cierra worked really hard on my appeal and received a favorable settlement for me. They were also very reasonable on the pricing for their services. I am very grateful for their help!
Great service and knowledgeable staff I couldn’t be happier with everything they did for me.
Great client service!
Katie was amazing with my Trust issues when I brought them to her. She took the time to read every word, and explain to us in detail. She even went above and beyond during our consultation by calling other lawyers involved. Was a simple pleasure to work with her. We are in the process of scheduling more time with her on a different matter due to her simple compassion and patience explaining it all to us.
As an attorney, I have worked with this law firm on a few different matters. They are diligent, professional and efficient with resources. I highly recommend them for your legal needs.

The attorneys at Elliott Pierce were miracle workers!
My wife and I own and manage a small Mexican restaurant in north Denver. A few years ago we were faced with an overwhelming situation that came in the shape of grossly exaggerated fines imposed on us by the Department of Labor and Employment. We quickly realized that shutting down and selling our business and/or home could be our only option. However, a good friend recommended Pierce Elliott Law firm to us; and lucky for us Katie and Joe took our case. As immigrants and small business owners we were lost and unsure of how to best deal with the circumstances; Katie and Joe were both very kind and knowledgeable. Many, many other small businesses have come across similar problems; for this reason, these lawyers went out of their way to meet with state politicians, “El Comite”, and other significant persons involved in workers compensation compliance. In addition, we were interviewed by CBS4 and Todd Shepherd for completecolorado.com, which further brought attention to and raised awareness about the poorly exercised laws in Colorado that disproportionately target small businesses. While Katie and Joe of Pierce Elliott Law began pushing for reforms, they ultimately saved our business and left us with peace of mind. We’re forever grateful for their help and thank God for leading us to them.
The ABSOLUTE Best!!!
I came to Katie for just a consultation. I had been going through a simple "parenting time", no property, marriage, nothing and should have been simple and done case. I had no representation and was on my own in the beginning and found myself in a position that I could not manage on my own. When I first met with Katie, she was knowledgeable asked the questions that were pertinent and was able to shed some legal light on false accusations and lies. Every person that I have ever talked with or communicated with in any way was always so very helpful and patient. She jumped into the case with such passion and precision, you would have thought she was the one sitting where you were. I breathed my first sigh of relief in over 3 years because of the time and effort put forth by the entire team. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but should you need legal help to get there - Katie and Company are the way to go.
High quality and professional service
Katie, Joe and Julie all worked hard on my case. They quickly adjusted their approach as things kept constantly changing with my child custody hearings. They did not shy away when it got complicated and they got extremely complicated at times. They treated with respect and answered all my questions even the ones I believes to be irrelevant. We have not gotten to end of this journey, however, I am extremely confident that due to Pierce Elliott Law firm the matter will ultimately be in my favor. I am grateful to have had them on my corner hands down.
Honest, Straight Forward, and Knowledgeable
I decided to work with Katie Pierce after I left another law firm that I felt was taking advantage of me and charging me for every little thing. Katie was a great help and very knowledgeable. I am happy to have worked with her and if the need arises, will be happy to work with her again in the future!
Thank you, What should've been a marginal divorce, became bitter and difficult. Amanda and Katie would always remind me - stop reflecting on the past and focus on the future. It became difficult when the attacks became very personal and deceitful, not only toward me, but towards my immediate family. Amanda and Katie took my back and carried me through the most difficult times in my life. Amanda and Katie took each drama and was "WINNING, BIGGLY". They took all the "ALTERNATIVE TRUTHS" and met them head on proving once again, the truth will set you free. So in closing, there are no amount of words or actions to describe my humblest appreciation for all you have done, thank you so much!!
Excellent service - Quick, Friendly, Fight for my rights, Reasonable Fees
Very pleased with my settlement. Katie Pierce and Joseph Colon are great to work with and very responsive to timeliness issues. They worked hard and fought for my rights even when opposing counsel was not cooperative. They went above and beyond my expectations. Their rates are reasonable and they did not pad their hours to try to add to their profit. I expect to use them both any time in the future that I need legal assistance. Their advice is clear and straight forward. They discuss the possible options and their best recommendations. Best experience with attorneys ever. Very pleased. Highly recommend this firm.
Great law office, everyone was friendly and helpful. Amanda Riggs at Pierce Elliott took care of my stepchild adoption for us. We tried last year to DYI it, but found it to confusing and complicated. Amanda handled our case for us and kept everything simple. Last week we had the adoption hearing and everything was finalized.
Great family lawyer
Katie did a great job for me. She handled a very complicated divorce for me and helped guide me through the decision making process with regard to how best to achieve the outcome I desired for myself and my former spouse. Her knowledge of the system and the law's requirements surrounding a rather unique resolution to my divorce saved me time and headache, and she was very patient and understanding while we worked a fair and equitable solution.
The most exceptional service and professional law firm I have ever worked with in my 25 years of business!
I would highly recommend Pierce-Elliot Law firm to anyone seeking competent and professional legal advice. I found the staff to be accommodating, friendly and very knowledgeable. We changed our legal representation from a well known legal firm located down town and were amazed at the level of commitment as well as time the Pierce-Elliot staff spent with our team. We could not have expected a more smooth transition as each staff member assessed and provided detailed information for us to make informed decisions. The level of communication in comparison to our previous law firm was not even comparable. If you are looking for a dedicated team that performs at a seasoned level this Veteran operated legal team is my first choice. You won't be disappointed.
Honest and Professional
Katie is truly devoted to assisting military clients. Her communication and professionalism was superb throughout our entire interaction. Katie assisted me in obtaining a 501(c)3 nonprofit status for a local Veteran organization. Her passion and attention to detail was greatly appreciated. I would recommend Katie Pierce to anyone seeking an honest and dedicated lawyer.
Katie Pierce did an excellent job representing me. She is the consummate professional and gave me clear and meaningful advice. I would recommend her to anyone.
Excellent and Knowledgable 100% Highly Recommend
Katie Pierce handled our case with excellence and great expertise. She knew the right questions to ask and it was very helpful in the outcome of our case. I would refer anyone to Katie Pierce as she was very personable, and honest! Very Reasonable. Thank you very kindly Katie for all of your help! Gave us peace of mind!
Excellent Divorce Law Attorney
Katie and her team helped me get through the emotionally draining divorce process. She was efficient and available from start to finish. Very professional and trustworthy. I highly recommend her legal services.
They were great!!
They helped me out so much, really did get me out of so much trouble. I am now living a stress free life again. I will go back again when I need any lawyer question. They let me know everything that was going on. Emailed me all the paperwork I needed.
I tried to handle my divorce on my own for awhile. What I should have done was look up Katie Pierce of Pierce Elliott Law right at the beginning. She was very knowledgeable and personable and my case was wrapped up only a few weeks after I'd hired her. Not only that, I reached an even more favorable outcome than I had originally sought to obtain. And it was so easy! I absolutely recommend you look no further if you want your divorce to be done and done well.
Professional work with a Personal touch
Both of the attorneys at Pierce Elliott Law lead me through a legal process I was unfamiliar with with a steady hand. They are knowledgeable and I have full confidence in their ability to represent me and my business. Well Done!
Family Will & Advice
Recently, I needed to undergo a potentially life-threatening surgery; the surgery was an emergency, so I needed to compose a Will the previous night. I contacted Pierce Elliott Law. Immediately, they met with me, and within a couple hours, they provided me with great advice and completed my Will. Since I am writing this review, the surgery obviously went well. I am truly thankful that Pierce Elliott Law was able to meet me on very short notice and provide me and my family with "peace of mind". Thank you, and I will seek out their services for any future legal matters!
My experience with Katie Pierce from Pierce Elliott Law, PLCC was awesome. She was very knowledge with military law concerning benefits and entitlements. Katie was always attentive, available, and thorough in providing information. I highly recommend anyone seeking advice and legal representation for military matters to use Katie Pierce. Thank you Katie for your help and knowledge in making my transition as painless as possible. Forever grateful.
