I am a graduate of Western State College, Geology, and a graduate of the Sturm College of Law, University of Denver, Attorney
I own Andrew Allen, Law Office, P.C., and have represented clients in Crested Butte and the greater mountain empire of Colorado since 1996. My core practice is criminal law defense but I found that clients need someone with a thorough knowledge of many other areas of the law including real property law.
As a real property attorney I have extensive experience in residential, condominium and business sales and I’ve been a home owners association attorney, plus I have experience with land use changes, land use resolutions, property platting and large track property subdivisions. I’ve drafted legal abstracts and have a thorough working knowledge of the clerk & recorder’s property records office and recall working as a toddler in the basement of the Gunnison County courthouse where the official clerk & recorder land records once were housed only in paper form before the days of computer databases and Internet access.
I was a licensed title insurance attorney for Rocky Mountain Title Insurance working for another broker, now at Red Lady Realty, Ryan Dickens. As an attorney I’ve litigated numerous landlord-tenant disputes and so the gist is: I’m immersed in many real property issues, so becoming an associate broker only made sense. Please contact me if you have a legal matter in Colorado and especially if it’s a real property issue.

Before moving to Crested Butte in 1991, I graduated from Castleton State College in Vermont with a degree in Communications and Skiing. For a guy straight out of Pittsburgh, PA the mountains in Vermont seemed big until I was lucky enough to see the Colorado Rockies on a ski trip with some friends. I knew Crested Butte was the place I wanted to live. This is where I met my wife Amy and we had our son Magnus. I’ve been working for Bighorn Realty for twenty six years now. First as office support staff and since 1999 as an Associate Broker. I know how to sell and list real estate because I learned the right way. Let me show you why this place is so unique either by bike, ski or snowmobile!
