“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
– Carl Bard

Bankruptcy affords those who may have fallen on hard times the opportunity to make a fresh start. Jerry Sumner is an experienced and compassionate Bankruptcy and Workers’ Compensation attorney who will help you take the first steps to a new start.

After becoming an attorney, Mr. Sumner continued to teach aspiring paralegals, and has taught programs in both North Carolina and Colorado. Prior to moving to Colorado in 2000, Mr. Sumner worked for a major insurance company as in-house counsel for the claim’s department. These experiences have culminated in a wealth of experience in the areas of Workers’ Compensation and Bankruptcy. Mr. Sumner’s clients are the recipient of his excellent representation, which is made possible from his rather unique history. His talent and reputation are only complimented by his tireless effort to serve his clients. During his free time, Mr. Sumner enjoys spending time with his wife and four sons and is actively involved in his church.

Mr. Sumner and The Bendinelli Law Firm understand that medical and financial problems are commonly tied together, and can often begin with a work injury. He has found that his two areas of practice (Workers’ Comp and Bankruptcy) can help clients get back on their feet. A quote from a former client sums up his goal for each and every client:
“life is good again!”
