About Telios Law

Telios Law is a Colorado law firm serving religious ministries, individuals, and businesses across the Front Range and beyond, representing them in litigation, appeals, and alternatives to litigation.

Our firm name reflects our approach to legal practice. “Telios” means “complete, perfect, or whole," and it is related to the word for finishing or completing. “Telios” defines successful results in terms of being complete, whole, or mature. Excellent legal work is important, but wasted unless it makes your business, personal life, or ministry more whole and helps you achieve your vision more perfectly. Legal services are expensive, and legal conflict has high costs financially and otherwise. Telios Law helps you consider whether legal solutions help bring completeness in your business, ministry, or personal life, and which legal solutions are likely to reach your desired end.

Telios Law’s religious organizations and corporate practice ranges from advising on legal and policy issues—with a special emphasis on First Amendment policies, international law, child protection policies and practices, and employment—to assisting with internal investigations, business disputes, and litigation defense. Appellate practice is a substantial portion of Telios Law’s litigation practice, usually as appellate co-counsel with other attorneys who have served as trial counsel. Through our civil rights litigation practice, Telios Law also advocates for equal employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, assists children and families with special needs, and holds the government accountable when individual rights are infringed.

Victory at Trial

Theresa Sidebotham of Telios Law and co-counsel Craig Shultz of Shultz Law are celebrating a victory at trial in Wichita, Kansas. Five years ago, our client wrote a strong letter to a would-be abortionist about common consequences of that lifestyle. Against the recommendations of the FBI, which did not think the letter was a threat, the Department of Justice decided to sue her. The lawsuit was dismissed by the district court, and the DOJ appealed to the Tenth Circuit and got a reversal. This week, we finally went to trial against the DOJ’s D.C. attorneys, and the jury found in our client’s favor. This was an important victory in defending the First Amendment, both for free speech and religious speech.
