A plea to the patron of lawyers, St. Thomas More, guides us daily. We ask, in pursuit of our profession, that:

 
 
I may be able in argument, accurate in analysis, keen in study, correct in conclusion, loyal to clients, honest with all, courteous to adversaries, trustworthy with confidences, courageous in court.
Matt Ferguson’s career has touched numerous industries and client endeavors. He takes enormous pride in his attention to detail and his ardent but measured advocacy both in court and in business. Matt presses the action in court or on deals. For this he has built enduring relationships with clients, colleagues, opposing attorneys, judges, mentors and mentees around the country and world. He will drop anything to speak with a client or a person in need. Matt is “old school”—getting back to you the same day.
 
 
 
Matt grew up in a large family in Greenwich Village, New York City. After practicing in New York City until 1995, he and his own family moved to Aspen, Colorado. He has practiced law out of Aspen ever since. Matt takes profound joy in serving clients located throughout Colorado, including Pitkin, Eagle, Summit, Mesa and Garfield counties. Matt’s clients also insist on our services throughout the region, in Denver, and in other states. Likewise, through our Aspen based law offices and our community service, we have forged lasting relationships in the Roaring Fork Valley communities of Aspen, Snowmass, Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs and around to the Vail Valley and I-70 corridor to Vail, Avon, Eagle, Edwards and Rifle. Matt has successfully built trial and litigation practices in New York City and, over the last decade, at his previous Aspen law firm, Garfield & Hecht, P.C. Clients have trusted Matt for three decades. He is equally respected by his opponents and judges.
 
 
 
Due to our service-focused approach, clients also regularly entrust their real estate and business transactions to the firm and its top-flight transactional practice. In recent years, Matt has tried actions in federal and state courts in New York, Florida and Colorado, to name a few states. Matt was mentored by the best tried lawyers in California, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania and New York. We regularly conduct arbitrations in Colorado. He has argued and handled appeals in various appellate courts, most recently prevailing in a June 2012 decision by the Colorado Supreme Court.
 
 
 
Matt’s client roster includes high-profile individuals/entrepreneurs, sophisticated real estate consumers, bankers, brokers, and owners of businesses from Aspen to Carbondale, and Glenwood to Denver. The firm represents local, regional and national businesses doing business in Colorado. Nonprofits and pro bono clients round out our Aspen law office’s practice.
 
 
 
Matt has defended and prosecuted many complex contract and business tort cases. He recently and successfully prosecuted a major Interstate Land Sales Full Disclosure Act cases. The breadth of the firm’s experience draws on a wide range of cases, including corporate law, aviation, arbitration, commercial and personal contracts, real estate deals, construction law and contracts, business dissolution and dispute, personal injury, business torts, fraud/RICO, products liability defense, ISLFDA, antitrust, multidistrict litigation, foreclosure and work out, fiduciary relationships, land use litigation, common ownership, condominium law and home owners’ associations, commercial leases, and consumer protection.
 
 
 
Matt also represents clients before city and county boards in land use matters where disputes may arise.

 
 
 
So in May 2012, with these words in mind, longtime Aspen attorney Matt Ferguson founded his own law firm in downtown Aspen, CO. The Matthew C. Ferguson Law Firm is a preeminent Aspen law office with great rankings and perfect client and judge ratings. But adherence to these words is our pursuit. Matt saw the need for not only a new and nimble law firm on Colorado’s Western Slope, but a firm that was first and foremost imbued in the tradition of great lawyers and cases, the drama of a trial or the majesty of a landmark civil rights argument. We believe that modern legal transactions also need and deserve the same sense of honor and excellence. As Colorado attorneys, we represent clients in many district courts and our federal courts. High-profile individuals, entrepreneurs, and major corporations are proud to be our clients. Every small business will be treated as if it is the giant that we know it to be. Although our reach in Colorado is broad, representing and getting to know our own neighbors and communities in the Roaring Fork and Vail valleys is a privilege and joy. We have local, regional, and national clients, and we love nothing better than clients dropping into our beautiful new Aspen law offices. You are always welcome to discuss a legal matter or just to reminisce about an old case or a great deal you made. If we’re busy, we will always get back to you.
 
 
 
As attorneys in Aspen, we have the best of all worlds. It’s a wonderful place to have landed and honed our skills. We’re “Aspen Legal” – a place we can really make and see a difference. Cases here challenge us with sophisticated legal problems – the ones that stump the larger law firms. We can win a major commercial or complex litigation in Aspen, Glenwood Springs, or Vail. We will also bring our team and skills “on the road” to any mountain or Denver community in Colorado and beyond. Our Vail attorneys and Gypsum/Glenwood Springs attorneys help expand our reach.
 
 
 
We can and do win against any size law firm. We treat all matters — large or small — with equal intensity. Opposing lawyers should also be fans and we have many. If you wish that we had represented you before, our doors are open.
 
 
 
Finally, each of us is dedicated to our local communities, schools, non-profits, friends in need, environment, clients and families. Outside the office or courthouse, you will see us on a sideline, in a rink, at a community picnic, attending a concert, on the slopes, in a saddle, on a riverbank, in a pew or on a path/trail/ favorite camping spot. Give us a smile. We are here for you. Being a Colorado lawyer has its perks. Living in Aspen is just another blessing.
