About Us
Bayer & Carey, PC - A full service insurance defense firm providing exceptional legal services throughout Colorado.

Bayer & Carey, P.C. traces its roots to a practice commenced in 1932 by its founding partner, Charles W. Sheldon, Jr. (1908-1980). Bayer & Carey practices civil trial and appellate law with an emphasis on representing insurance companies and their policy holders in litigation throughout the State of Colorado.

Bayer & Carey specializes in building a strong tripartite relationship among the claim representative from the insurance carrier, the client/insured, and the attorney from Bayer & Carey. We provide direct communication between the attorney and the insured client, and between the attorney and the claim representative for the insurance carrier.
Each attorney becomes immersed in the facts and issues of the case and provides direct assistance to the insured and the carrier from the pre-litigation stages through the appellate process.
