Garfield & Hecht, P.C. Attorney Presents at Colorado Municipal League’s Annual Fall Seminar
This October, we co-presented “It’s a Trap: How to Navigate the World of Opinion Letters” at the Colorado Municipal League’s Annual Fall Seminar on Municipal Law in Steamboat Springs. The firm will also have an article in an upcoming issue of The Colorado Lawyer publication on steps to take to limit liability to third parties when drafting opinion letters. Dave’s talk was designed to spark a discussion among municipal attorneys about issues related to the issuance of third-party opinions by government practitioners. The lively presentation focused on liability concerns and provided numerous practice pointers for local government counsel. Dave serves as the City Attorney for the City of Delta and as the Town Attorney for the Town of De Beque, in addition to advising the firm’s other local government clients. He speaks regularly on local government and land use issues to both public groups like the Colorado Municipal League and to private organizations.
