For the past two decades, Alex Goiran has specialized in real estate law, representing developers, investors and landowners, and since this is Colorado, where natural resources are so important, he has focused on the issues of oil and gas leasing, land use and royalty disputes.
In law school at the American University, Washington College of Law, in Washington, D.C., Alex took targeted clinics in both criminal law and real estate. Surrounded by the buzz of the Beltway, he interned in a Congressional office, and worked with the Small Business Administration.
In 2001, Alex moved to Boulder, where he began representing land owners in complex cases involving mineral rights and surface use. He joined Tiemeier & Stich in 2015 and has continued to expand his practice and real estate expertise. In addition to representing clients, Alex has provided expert testimony in oil and gas cases and attorney fee disputes. He has also argued cases before the appellate courts of Washington, D.C. and Colorado.
“This is a fairly specialty niche, and one that is special to Colorado,” he says. In fact, most of his clients come from referrals since the oil and gas community is small, and Alex is entrenched in it. “I’ve always thought that there are two categories of lawyers: those who go about the business of lawyering and those who also want to help people. One is not necessarily better than the other, but I am much more concerned with helping. I think that shows up in the way I handle my clients and our conversations.”
Alex grew up in New Jersey and Connecticut, where he played competitive soccer. These days he is passionate about writing fiction and poetry with the goal of getting published. Alex also plays golf, tennis, and ping pong in his free time.
