Who We Are

Telios Law is a Colorado law firm serving businesses, individuals, ministries, and churches, representing them in and out of court. Telios Law attorneys advise our clients on a variety of legal and policy issues, with a special emphasis on First Amendment policies, international law, child protection policies and practices, and employment. A large part of Telios Law’s practice includes handling investigations in employment law and child abuse, advising on or supervising internal investigations, or performing independent investigations as an outside firm.

“Telios” means “complete, perfect, mature, or whole,” and it is related to the word for finishing or completing. “Telios” defines successful results in terms of being complete, whole, or mature. Excellent legal work is important, but wasted unless it makes your business, personal life, or ministry more whole and helps you achieve your vision more perfectly. Telios Law helps you consider whether legal solutions help bring completeness in your business, ministry, or personal life and which legal solutions are likely to reach your desired end.
