THE FIRM ABOUT US
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.”
So in May 2012, with these words in mind, longtime Aspen attorney Matt Ferguson founded his own law firm in downtown Aspen, Colorado. 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.
Matthew Ferguson & the Matthew C. Ferguson Law Firm have supported the following organizations:

We will earn our reputation every day, one client and case at a time. We are blessed to be highly-rated Aspen lawyers. BUT, we will not stand on ratings and rankings. You don’t need to see a plaque in a waiting room; you want the best Aspen lawyer in the courtroom. Here they are for the curious.
5.0 out of 5.0. Matt has performed legal services for us for over 10 years. He is an excellent attorney and would highly recommend him to anyone considering his services. President, Real Estate Development Company, Vail
