[10/22/15] After almost six years at the same office space, next week the Law Office of EC Lewis PC says goodbye to the old and hello to the new! Bad news - no more food trucks parked outside and a lot of places to update address. Good news - Dazbog Coffee is on the first floor of the new space. Great news - Tons of visitor parking, Cherry Creek Trail is just across the street, and we are less than a mile from our old location! Now just to move everything and get it set up! New address will be 3773 Cherry Creek North Drive, Suite 575, Denver CO 80209. I can't wait to serve business clients in a super upscale office building. And did I mention we have coffee (either at Dazbog or in the office - although I can't guarantee it will be as good!)? Super bonus!
