Great trial lawyer
DJ represented me in a complicated personal injury case. My case eventually went to trial, and DJ’s knowledge, experience and tenacity lead to a verdict in my favor. My family and I are very grateful for his professionalism, and would whole heartily recommend DJ to our friends and family.

A Wonderful Outcome
I feel extremely fortunate to have found DJ Banovitz. He pretty much saved my life. After being hit by a truck while riding my bicycle (Aug.2013), my life was in a shambles. I was devastated both physically& emotionally and until my friend,Larry found Mr. Banovitz, my future was looking bleak. DJ took over my case & my load felt lightened immediately. While working to resolve my case,he kept me informed and always explained what was happening in terms that I could understand, which was so important to me since I was experiencing a lot of confusion due to a traumatic brain injury.(And I don't always understand "Lawyer talk"!). Thanks to DJ, I won my case and was able to pay my huge medical debts and can now start my life over. He was always concerned about my healing & how I felt. Whenever I would start to panic or get confused,DJ would calm me down & reassure me. I felt so relieved to have him in my corner and will be forever grateful for his hard work & my wonderful outcome. Needless to say, I highly recommend DJ Banovitz as a lawyer who will do the job & make things right. ~Sherrie, Crested Butte,CO.

Great Job dealing with a hit-and-run accident
I was injured in a hit-and-run accident, Mr. Banovitz did a great job at getting me close to the limit my insurance was able to compensate me for. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with a hit-and-run accident.

Amazing Attorney
I had an amazing and wonderful experience with DJ. He is a very knowledgeable attorney and very compassionate. The whole time I felt like I was in control and it was my case allowing me to make all the decisions along the way. At the same time, DJ was providing me sound and well informed legal counsel. DJ has a lot of experience and knowledge that I was able to benefit from. His work ethic and drive exceeded my expectations. He is a respectful attorney and I was extremely grateful to have him on my side the whole time. I am confident no one will be disappointed if they retain him.

Ethical and Effective
DJ represented us on multiple cases. He was always caring and takes time to learn facts and analyzed all documents. He saved us from lengthy lawsuit, helped us understand our options and the implications of choosing one course of action versus another. DJ's advice always considered the ethical issues involved. We'd recommend DJ's services to all who want results!

Donald J. Banovitz
I worked with Mr. Banovitz on my personal injury case. I had never done anything like this before and was quite nervous and had a ton of questions. He was very informative right from the befinning and put my mind at ease. He was readily available when ever I needed him or had further questions. He checked In with me often to see how I was feeling and what my progress was on getting better and back to normal. He was very knowledgable and very proficient. I had a very desirable outcome with my case. Mr. Banovitz is a very skilled lawyer that I would highly recommend.

"I have had the privilege of working with DJ Banovitz helping him create educational messages to teach and educate his ideal clients. He is an avid skier and a dedicated attorney who cares deeply about his injured clients. He created a series of educational messages in order to teach and educate his ideal consumers and ideal clients in order for them to learn things they were interested in. Those messages gave his ideal clients an opportunity to understand how the legal process in Colorado works and to recognize that DJ has great content and information in order to help injured victims in Colorado. In my opinion, one of the best ways to stand out from the crowd and get your consumers to know you, like you and begin to trust you before they ever meet you is to create the type of educational messages that DJ created. Great content and information. That's exactly what you want in a compassionate and dedicated professional like DJ."

"I am writing to give my highest recommendation to D J Banovitz. Mr. Banovitz is a highly skilled personal injury trial lawyer and is the "go-to" lawyer to handle a substantial and complex personal injury case in the Denver area. I was fortunate to have Mr. Banovitz practice with me in North Carolina during 2003 and 2004. While he was with me he achieved spectacular results for our clients. He knows how to talk to insurance adjusters to get the best results possible. He has the respect of the insurance defense lawyers and because of this respect, he is able to achieve for his clients the best results possible.
