Aaron J. HuckstepJD, CPA
Prior to law, Mr. Huckstep honed his business acumen as a CPA with Ernst & Young. Then, as a accounting software consultant for nonprofits and governmental entities with family business from 2000-2003. Even after law school, Mr. Huckstep maintains his CPA to help clients understand the economics of dispute resolution, as well as advising businesses on financial issues related to buy/sell transactions. While practicing law in Western Colorado, Mr. Huckstep also served as Mayor of Crested Butte (2011-2015), and as the Vice-President of the Colorado Association of Ski Towns (2015).
His business & legal method is to approach everything with an open and creative mind focused on resolving disputes and overcoming challenges. With transactions, adapt and respond quickly when challenges arise, leading to successful closings. Unfortunately, not all attorneys (or opposing parties) are interested in resolving disputes in a cooperative way; as soon as we determine that the opposing party isn't interested in working in good faith towards a resolution, then protect the client’s interest in a cost-effective manner.
Mr. Huckstep believes in helping clients by planning a strategy, adapting plans when necessary, and remaining focused on one objective – to make sure the client obtains the outcome they can reasonably expect.
