JP is a Partner at Burnham Law based out of the Boulder office.  He has undergraduate degrees in History and Theatre from Southwestern University and earned his J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.

After graduating from law school, JP was sworn in as a Deputy District Attorney for Denver where he handled hundreds of cases ranging from traffic and misdemeanor matters to first-degree murder.  He has tried dozens of jury trials to verdict and an even greater number of contested hearings before judicial officers.
