Steve Ray brings an unusually broad range of legal experience to his focused Northern Colorado practice representing people who have been injured. He has served as a lawyer and judge in the U.S. Marine Corps, and as a civilian attorney he has years of experience handling business litigation and insurance defense work.

Steve grew up in tiny Chappell, Neb., spending a good portion of his childhood on the family’s farm outside town. He attended Colorado State University, where he served in the Army ROTC where he was commissioned as a second lieutenant and received a B.A. in history in 1971. Upon graduation, the Army allowed him to attend the University of Tulsa College of Law, where he received his J.D. in 1973.

While in law school, Steve decided to transfer to the U.S. Marine Corps, and after graduating, he served as a Marine judge advocate general for four years, gaining valuable trial experience in military proceedings.
