CINDY BARGELL
Cindy Bargell, AttorneyCindy's practice focuses primarily on real estate and oil and gas. Her real estate experience includes real property acquisition and development, from zoning and entitlement to going horizontal for both residential and commercial projects. She also has experience in the analysis and resolution of difficult title issues. Cindy has structured common interest communities throughout Colorado, working on complex community issues for both developers and homeowners. Cindy can adeptly represent clients on matters ranging from single asset acquisitions to multifaceted development projects. Cindy also has a long history in the oil and gas industry, having obtained her undergraduate degree in Minerals Land Management. Before attending law school she worked for nearly a decade as a Petroleum Landman, and has retained her passion for the industry. She honed her natural resources experience as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Colorado, representing the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission and the State Land Board. Cindy has since worked on a variety of oil and gas matters in private practice, representing both mineral owners and oil and gas companies.

After graduating in the top two percent of her law school class, Cindy started her career as a law clerk to the Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court. When she moved into private practice she worked at a prominent Denver law firm where she first met Sheri Visani, and they developed a lasting professional and personal relationship. She left the firm to work for the Attorney General's Office, gaining valuable expertise in both regulatory and policy matters. Cindy later moved to Summit County where for over a decade she continued her practice with a Denver real estate boutique firm, developing her skills and her knowledge in both the real estate and oil and gas fields. When the opportunity to join Sheri came up it became clear the two could complement each other in a variety of practice areas with the same focus on client service.

Cindy brings both legal expertise and business experience to the table in any transaction. She recognizes the importance of cooperating with all participants in a transaction, while still protecting and promoting her client's interest.

Cindy is active in her local Summit County community and has served on the Town of Dillon Planning and Zoning Commission and on the Summit County Housing Authority. She volunteers extensively for many community causes, and recently was part of the Leadership Summit program, refining her skills as both a leader and community servant.

Cindy is based in the firm's Dillon office, located in Summit County, Colorado.
