About Peters & Nolan, LLC

Experienced Attorneys Serving the Western Slope

Andrew J. Peters and Andrew J. Nolan both had successful careers as top trial attorneys before joining together to form Peters & Nolan, LLC, in 2002. Now, their Grand Junction-based firm specializes in two seemingly different branches of law: criminal defense and personal injury. But for Andy and Andy, it’s not a stretch.

“It’s exciting – much more exciting than writing contracts or doing real estate deals.”

“When people come to us, things aren’t going well for them. We represent people who are outgunned, and often don’t have the tools to defend themselves. They need me and Andy to battle those powerful interests for them, whether it’s a billion-dollar insurance company or the United States government trying to lock them up. We like to think that if it wasn’t for us, people who are already having a tough time – through accident or arrest – would have their lives even more messed up.”

Whatever the complexity of your legal matter, you can rest assured that Peters & Nolan, LLC, will resolve it in an effective, cost-efficient manner. We treat every case like it’s going to trial. Andrew J. Peters and Andrew J. Nolan are known for being personable, responsive, and extremely tenacious. For us, it’s about representing people, not corporations.

Personal Injury Representation

For over 20 years, Mr. Peters and Mr. Nolan have each helped clients who suffered personal injury through car and motorcycle crashes, semi-truck collisions, dog and other animal attacks, dangerous property conditions, and more. We also help families pursue justice in the wake of a wrongful death. Many clients come to Peters & Nolan, LLC, after trying to deal with the insurance companies themselves.

“Our injured clients are frustrated and disillusioned with the claims process. The adjusters don’t want to work with them; the insurance companies don’t want to give them what their injuries deserve. That’s where we come in.”

For personal injury cases, the firm takes payment on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, you pay us NOTHING until we get you a satisfactory settlement or jury verdict to cover your injuries and other damages. Hundreds of our cases have gone to trial; and for a while, we had the highest jury verdicts in the state of Colorado. Every situation is unique, and we tackle it from the most intelligent, aggressive stance possible. We know our PI clients just want their lives back, and we want to help with that.

Criminal Defense Representation

Since beginning his practice in 1997, Andrew J. Nolan has devoted his career to defending people accused of crimes, in federal and state court. Andrew J. Peters served as a Mesa County Prosecutor for a time, which gives him a unique insight to criminal cases. Both have handled thousands of criminal cases, experiencing everything from DUIs to white collar crimes to complex murder cases.

Mesa County is one of the most punitive jurisdictions in the state. Per capita, they send more people to jail than any other county in Colorado. If you get nabbed in Mesa, a small misunderstanding may land you in a cell. We know this, and take special pride in defending against these charges. For us, it’s all about rising to the challenge, and pitting our skills against the system.

We’ll be honest – we do charge more for our criminal defense services than many lawyers in our region. But we also give two to three times the value. We’ve been doing this for a long time, and have many certifications. (Between the two of us, we handle more DUIs than the rest of the Colorado State Bar.) We know how much work, experience, and knowledge goes into getting successful results for people. And we do get those results.

For Peters & Nolan, LLC, Quality Is Not Negotiable

A “low-volume” firm, Peters & Nolan, LLC, handles only a select number of cases. We want to ensure that every single case we take gets the attention to detail that it needs – and because of it, what our clients need. When you’re represented by our firm, you should expect personalized attention, honesty, constant communication, and a much better outcome than you could have gotten otherwise. We can’t guarantee anything, but we’ll come close.

We handle arrests and accidents from all over the Western Slope; including Delta, Montrose, Eagle, Meeker, Rangely, Glenwood, Rilfe, Gunnison, Craig, and even Nucla, Colorado.
