James T. Flynn
Jim's background includes an

1967, awarded magna cum laude with departmental honors and membership in
Phi Beta Kappa, and a 1974 law degree from Stanford Law School.

and was a partner in the Colorado Springs
office of Holme Roberts & Owen (now Bryan Cave)

classmate, Bruce Wright.

easy-to-understand and (hopefully) entertaining manner. And, Jim is the author of three
lawyer novels--Overdraft, dealing with a cyber
attack on the U.S. banking system; Where There’s No Will, about a will contest over an $18 million
estate; and Fraudulent Transfers,
dealing with a counterfeit cashier’s check fraud and money laundering.

and provide mediation services in connection with financial services, real
estate, probate, and business-related disputes. Jim is married to Anne Marie; has a
son, Ian; and enjoys fly fishing in the rivers and lakes of Colorado.
