Areas of Practice

Relationships Built On Trust

The law firm of Traylor, Tompkins & Black, P.C., has a history of partnerships with the people and businesses of the Western Slope. We offer the legal services of a large law firm, but with the convenience, personal attention and cost efficiency of a small-town practice.

Our attorneys have extensive experience and are regarded by their peers as leaders in a wide range of legal areas, including business law; water law; wills, trusts and estates; real estate; construction law and employment law.

One of the qualities that sets us apart from other law practices in the area is the fact that we are a well-established local firm — not a satellite office of a big city firm. Our lawyers have strong ties to the community, creating valuable professional and personal relationships that give us a greater understanding of the local legal landscape. Our clients are more to us than case files. They are our friends, neighbors and business associates.
