Aaron is the Director of Civil Litigation at Burnham Law based out of the Boulder office, a division he founded within the firm in order to pursue his passion for civil litigation. He is certified as a trial lawyer by the National Institute for Trial Advocacy (NITA) and was awarded the prestigious Trial Skills Certificate in 2019.
During law school, Aaron was the Editor in Chief of the Denver University Law Review, a position in which he honed his research and writing skills. He went on to serve as law clerk for the Honorable Gilbert M. Román on the Colorado Court of Appeals. There, he served as the judge’s right hand, assisting in analyzing cases, comprehending the application of law to complex cases, and authoring appellate opinions. In his experiences as both Editor in Chief and as an appellate clerk, Aaron had broad exposure to endless areas of the law, accelerating his understanding of Colorado law and further developing his writing, editing, and research skills. These experiences also benefited Aaron’s advocacy abilities by serving as an intensive training in not only understanding numerous areas of the law and nuanced issues therein, but also comprehensive legal research, writing, and oral advocacy. In practice, Aaron applies these skills in his meticulous approach to understanding the key details of cases and the law in order to achieve results.

Aaron was also part of the Student Trial Lawyers Association and the recipient of the Dean’s Scholarship as well as the Sam and Freda Davis Scholarship, both based on academic merit. Prior to joining Burnham Law, he worked as a Denver attorney advocating for victims in civil rights and employment discrimination cases.
Aaron leads the Burnham Law Civil Litigation Division, where he focuses on litigating complex contract, property, and tort disputes. He is a board member on the Denver University Law Review Advisory Board, and a member of the American Association for Justice. He lives in Boulder County and enjoys skiing, gardening, live music, the Minnesota Vikings, and spending time with his wife and two children.
After we explained the details of our situation, Mr. Belzer wrote a very detailed letter to the contractor regarding the breach of contract. The letter was clear and comprehensive. The contractor responded within the allotted timeframe that Mr. Belzer requested. He was able to resolve our dispute and 100% of our funds were returned. This also allowed us to avoid litigation. Our only regret is that we didn’t call him sooner to help with our situation.
We highly recommend Mr. Belzer and Burnham Law and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
Working with Aaron Belzer and the Burnham law firm was a great experience. I hate that they only give me an option for 5 stars, they deserve 10.
We will stick with him, and the firm always for any legal assistance we need in the future.
