Attorney Profile

After practicing for many years at larger firms in Denver, Colorado, Todd M. Olinger formed his own firm in 2011 to offer exceptional and cost-effective legal services to closely held businesses throughout Colorado. His firm, Todd M. Olinger, P.C., was designed from the outset to provide top-tier client service at competitive rates by operating outside of central Denver, leveraging the latest legal practice technologies, and utilizing small, tight-knit working teams.  Mr. Olinger and A. Teri Vanderhyden, the Firm's paralegal, work together to ensure work is accomplished as cost-effectively as possible.  The Firm frequently works with specialized counsel in other law and accounting firms.

Mr. Olinger has more than 20 years of legal experience. He handles matters involving business formation and development, real estate holding companies and syndications, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments, and international ventures.  He has served on a long-term basis as outside general counsel for some of his clients, including a client with substantial overseas operations and multiple clients with multiple ongoing real estate development projects.

An active member of his legal and professional communities, Mr. Olinger is currently the Chair of the Colorado Bar Association’s Business Law Section and a member of the Denver Bar Association.  A former Eagle Scout, he serves as a Cub Scout den leader for the Boy Scouts of America, as a youth soccer coach, and as director and president of the Grove at Harper Lake Homeowner’s Association.

In addition to his law degree, Mr. Olinger holds a bachelor’s degree in physics (with honors) from Middlebury College and an M.B.A. (Finance) from the University of Colorado Boulder’s Leeds School of Business.

Mr. Olinger was an operational space intelligence officer in the United States Air Force and USAF Active Reserves from 1990 until 2002.  He specialized in foreign threat analysis to U.S. space-based systems and in foreign space launch capabilities.   In 1993, he was chosen as one of fifteen members of General Charles A. Horner’s National Launch Delay Study Team.

He received his law degree from the University of Colorado Law School and is qualified to practice in all Colorado state courts.
