Review William Babich

About Me

Bill Babich states: "In founding my firm over three decades ago, I dedicated it to be the voice of the injuried -- devoted to helping people whose lives will never be the same again.  The fact that we focus exclusively on making a genuine difference in the lives of those who have suffered a major injury or death of a family member allows us to pursue every ounce of justice on their behalf."          


 


Mr. Babich has been selected to "Super Lawyers."  He has been also selected as a "Top 10 Personal Injury Attorney" by the National Academy pf Personal Injury Attorneys;"  "Top 100 Trial Lawyers" by the National Trial Lawyers; "Top 100 Litigation Lawyer" by the American Society of Legal Advocates; and as a member of the "Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum."   Bill is also recognized in the "Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers," and is rated AV Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell  -- the highest rating awarded by his peers for legal ability and ethical standards.   Mr. Babich is also among an elite group of trial lawyers in the country privileged to attend and graduate from Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers College.



Mr. Babich is editor of the Colorado Auto Litigator's Handbook, Third Edition, and is author of several chapters including: "Trucking Litigation and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations," and "Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Claims in Colorado.”  Mr. Babich frequently represents plaintiffs in commercial trucking cases, speaks at numerous seminars regarding trucking litigation, and is on the National Advisory Board to the Association of Plaintiff Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America (APITLA).

William Babich has served on the Board of Directors of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association for over twenty years and has served as co-chairman of the Interprofessional Committee of the Colorado Bar Association/The Denver Bar Association.  He focuses his practice on major personal injury, traumatic brain and spinal injury cases, uninsured/underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist claims, and trucking litigation.

Mr. Babich is admitted before all state and federal courts of law in Colorado, as well as the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court.

  • Keeley D. Heath

    I was lucky enough to attend the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College with Bill Babich in July of 2011. His knowledge and skill are impressive, but even more impressive is his caring and compassion for his clients. I was also shocked by his creativity when I heard of an awesome victory where he did closing argument wearing the chains that had injured his client. Bill is an amazing lawyer who can truly make a difference. I would recommend him to anyone seeking representation.
