Wright busts stereotype

Dear Editor:At a time when stereotyping has become the norm, I’ve been blessed and relieved to find that not everyone in a particular profession can be labeled, and that character is still found, or it can find you, even in your darkest moments. Two years ago, I was forced to file for divorce and seek legal counsel.The two local attorneys I had contacted were primarily concerned with their fees – with a “business-as-usual” tone that seemed daunting to someone shocked with the unknown of going through the death of a marriage. Deflated and exhausted, I connected with an attorney named Gary Wright in Aspen. Just hearing “That’s my job” and “You stay focused on your kid” gave me relief beyond my expectation or expression.Bewildered by the process, I can’t express my thanks enough to Mr. Wright, his paralegal Jena, and the rest of the support staff at Wright & LaSalle for not having the “business-as-usual” motivation. Most importantly, they cared, having an appreciation for what my kids were going through (and would be going through). I learned a valuable lesson about hope and optimism these past two years, and my kids have had their daddy calm and involved instead of distracted by chaos.Jeff KrebillRifle
