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.

Telios Law Champions Protecting Children

Lonely KidTelios Law PLLC files a complaint over strip-searching children against the Executive Director of the Colorado DHS, Reggie Bicha, and against El Paso County Board of County Commissioners (BOCC), comprised of Sallie Clark, Darryl Glenn, Dennis Hisey, Amy Lathen, and Peggy Littleton.

According to Colorado DHS records, on December 10, 2014 Ms. April Woodard, a DHS caseworker, received permission from her supervisor, Ms. Christina Newbill, to view a four-year-old child’s “buttocks, stomach/abdomen, and back so Caseworker could look for marks/bruises.” The school health paraprofessional met with Ms. Woodard in the nurse’s room. Ms. Woodard instructed the child to show her buttocks and stomach and back. The child states that an adult took off all her clothes, that the adults viewed her and prepared to take photographs. The child says that she told Ms. Woodard she did not want photographs taken. Nevertheless, the caseworker took color photographs of private and unclothed areas of her body. The child is still upset that photographs of her unclothed body were taken without her or her mother's consent.
