After graduation Ron joined the Denver Law Firm of Fuller and Evans and opened their Littleton office. The family moved to Littleton where they have resided ever since. The Writer Corporation, one of the most prominent builders and developers at the time, was one of his first clients and the position as the official coordinator of the Home Rule City Charter Convention started off his career. In 1959, he was appointed assistant (prosecuting) city attorney for Littleton. In 1965 he started as Arapahoe County Attorney and held the position until 1979. During those years he worked with the legalities surrounding the zoning and development of the Arapahoe County Airport (now Centennial Airport), as well as the controversial project known as I-470, today known as C-470. After resigning from the county attorney position in 1979, the Littleton Independent stated he was a “skillful attorney and loyal and dedicated public servant.” Ron continued with private practice and ended his career with Robinson Waters & O’Dorisio P.C. A perpetual hard worker, Ron was in the office the week before his death.
Ron had an active life of golfing, skiing, traveling and enjoying music.

A man of service, the Red Cross appointed him disaster chairman during the flood of 1965. Two years later, he sang with the “Fiasco” fundraisers for the Littleton Library.
