Jeffrey E. Erb, Esq.
Jeffrey Erb has provided legal services to Colorado special districts, including metropolitan, water and sanitation districts since 2010. Mr. Erb’s practice focuses on the representation of special districts, local governments, quasi-municipal entities, and a select group of real estate developers.
