Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I obtained a B.S., in finance with a minor in economics from Miami (Ohio) University in 2000. I then spent a year working in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court and then enrolled at Case Western Reserve University, where I graduated in 2004 with a joint J.D./M.B.A. degree. My love of snowboarding, hiking, and fly fishing inspired my move to Colorado to further pursue these activities and my legal career. Until 2008, I practiced insurance law exclusively in the areas of workers' compensation and subrogation. 

 

I am rated AV Preeminent with Martindale-Hubbell, and Super Lawyers Magazine named me a Colorado "Rising Star" in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.

A Whoopin by a true gunslinger
Mike represented me in an insurance matter that was brought on by a presumed multiple PHd attorney. Mike was so well prepared the litigation once presented in court was hopeless. It was most interesting to see the opposition reduced to foolish rhetoric and admonished by the judge. I should have countersued but I find all of this unpleasant and non productive to a healthy society. I would trust Mike to defend my children if need be. He means business without the hyperbole.

Michael P. Curry, a man of character
Michael represented my company through several Workman's Compansation cases, proving himself reliable, resourceful, and tenatious. He invested in the success of our cases, and his investment paid off in successful resolutions and improved understanding of the finer aspects of the law. He represents the qualities that you would expect from a trusted friend or advisor; Honesty, Trustworthiness, Loyalty and above all, integrity. He is a credit to his profession, someone you would be proud to have representing you or your company. I am extremely pleased to recommend this unique and valuable professional.
