For many of us, images of Denver usually include omnipresent snow and mile-high mountains. Those perceptions, and more, are dissected as we explore the capital of Colorado as a place to live, work, and play.

If you move to Denver and start practicing law here, you may find yourself doing things you did not expect. Like waking up very early, accepting the help of strangers without suspicion, or enjoying sunshine for 300 days out of a year.

You'll probably get used to it.

Practicing here.

Lawyers in Denver regularly get to the office at 7:30 in the morning. Yes, it's early, but most of them do not stay until 7:30 at night. Even associates we spoke with said that they leave the office by 6:00 or 6:30 and (wow!) go home and spend time with their families.

One associate we talked with, Melanie K. Komarowsky, said that she works from 7:30 to 4:30. She does not have children, and she is not part-time; that's just when the office closes. Komarowsky, a New England School of Law alumna, has been practicing immigration law for two years with Allott Immigration Law Firm.

"I loved Boston," says Komarowsky. "It is a wonderful city." A Colorado native, though, Komarowsky wanted to move back west. The difference between the East Coast and Denver? "Colorado just isn't as old school," she says. For example, most Denver firms do not require that you wear suits to the office, unless you have a court date or official outside business. And her law school friends working in Boston are often suited up and in the office from 8:00 to 7:00.
