After being honorably discharged from the U.S. Army, Mr. Blehm earned his Bachelor Degree in Political Science and Spanish from Colorado State University. During college, Mr. Blehm trained at the Colorado Law Enforcement Training Academy and worked as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff for the Pueblo County Sheriff’s Department in Pueblo, Colorado. He also interned at the Pueblo County District Attorney’s Office in the Criminal Investigations Division. Mr. Blehm then earned a Master of Arts Degree in Latin American Studies and a Juris Doctor from the University of Arizona. During law school, Mr. Blehm was on Law Review and worked as a pro bono immigration attorney where he argued a case before the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. He also clerked for the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals and studied international dispute resolution, arbitration, and mediation at the Institut fur Anwaltsrecht an der Humbolt Universitat zu Berlin in Berlin, Germany. Mr. Blehm graduated summa cum laude and Order of the Coif.
After law school, Mr. Blehm spent 10 years working for the prestigious law firm of Bowman and Brooke LLP where his practice focused on complex and technical litigation. During his tenure at Bowman and Brooke, Mr. Blehm engaged in all aspects of litigation. Although his practice focused on technical motor vehicle litigation, including on and off-road vehicles and motorcycles, Mr. Blehm defended numerous products, including helmets, air conditioners, and pharmaceuticals. During his career, Mr. Blehm has spent a significant amount of time working closely with technical experts, including engineers, toxicologists, accident reconstructionists, medical doctors, radiologists, and statisticians on highly complex and technical issues. Mr. Blehm also defended commercial litigation claims.
Mr. Blehm is also a devoted family man who understands the trauma associated with the dissolution of the family unit, or divorce in layman’s terms. Although Mr. Blehm represents men and women equally in dissolution (divorce) proceedings, Mr. Blehm is passionate about defending parental rights where parenting time or child custody is the issue. Mr. Blehm believes that gender bias has no place in determining legal decision making and parenting time issues and that both parents are important in the lives of their children.
As a veteran, Mr. Blehm knows that our nation’s service men and women deserve a special thank you for their many sacrifices. Because those who have honorably served our country and their immediate family members have given so much for so little, Mr. Blehm offers them a reduced rate for his legal services.
