About Norton Frickey P.C.

Norton Frickey was a Colorado legal legend. He began his career as a criminal defense attorney in 1957, and gained prominence by trying a number of high-profile cases. In the 1970’s he added to his practice and began representing Coloradans who had been injured in an accident, at work, or otherwise needed legal help.

In 1977, when the Supreme Court lifted the ban on advertising by lawyers, Norton Frickey became one of the first attorneys in the nation to advertise legal services to the public. When he retired from active law practice in 1988, Norton Frickey P.C. continued his vision of serving the people of Colorado by providing the legal services that the community needs.

That vision continues today as Norton Frickey P.C. strives to live up to that legacy, and the long history of service, by working for the people of Colorado.
