Russell Hatten guided me through the difficult process of dealing with insurance companies, doctors, and witnesses to my accident. Mr. Hatten is a skier himself and understands the code of responsibility as well as how things happen on the mountain. He thoroughly explained the lawsuit process, got my out of pocket medical expenses paid quickly, was sympathetic to my pain, and even worked on Saturdays to get to a reasonable settlement. At no time was I concerned about anything. Although we ended up settling (which eliminated a great deal of stress and wasted time) I know that he would have been equally effective had we gone to trial. I highly recommend Mr. Hatten.

Russell was there by my side through the whole process. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional, he gave astute and sound advice, provided comfort when the going was tough, he always replied to questions and concerns. I felt in safe hands and above all I felt that he really cared - I am so very grateful for the kindness, help support and advice.

Russell Hatten is a great attorney! I was seriously injured in a rear end collision while I was bent down. Even though all my friends told me to handle the case myself (save attorney fees), I just was not up to the task. I am very glad that I didn’t! Not only did he provide me with his cell phone number and met with my husband and I where it was convenient for us, but he also met with my doctor! Since the vehicle we were in looked like a basic fender bender, the insurance company, for the at fault driver, did not believe that I could have sustained injuries serious enough to require surgery and large medical bills; they initially offered to settle the case for $27k. However, thanks to Russell’s thoroughness and knowledge, he was able to provide the insurance company with enough documentation where they agreed to settle for policy limits without any threat of a lawsuit. I would never have been able to get much more than their initial offer had I tried to handle the case myself. Every step of the way Russell kept me informed via email, text, and phone calls. I highly recommend him and have recommended him to close friends of mine, who are also extremely pleased with his services.

He was very thorough and easy to contact. I live in Texas, but got injured skiing in Colorado. We handled the whole case over the phone and via email fairly painlessly. I would definitely recommend him to anybody looking for a ski injury attorney in Colorado.

From day one, Russell has made the process of my injury as painless as possible. No hassle of the behind the scenes paperwork, just simple questions and contact. I didn't need the stress of the lawsuit while I was healing. And he certainly took care of everything with respect and curtosy. I will go to him if I ever find myself in need of a medical malpractice lawyer again. I can't thank him enough!

Russell was very knowledgable of certain unique aspects of the two insurance policies involved as well as medicare liens vs PPO plans. He handled the claim quickly and kept us advised at every step. Their client correspondence and prompt closing of the case were both notable.

Russell R. Hatten did a fantastic job on my case. I had a nasty car wreck on Highway 285 in Jefferson County and had hired an attorney based on a reference from a friend. The first attorney for my case ended up being horrible. We looked up Russell in Super Lawyers and gave him a shot. He looked at my case free of charge and told me he believed he could get a much better settlement than what was offered to my previous attorney. Russell basically doubled my settlement and I know he could have done better if my previous attorney had not given me some horrible advice (which said previous attorney later denied giving).
Russell displays all of the characteristics and behaviors of an exceptional attorney. He is up to date on current legal settlements and will update himself for your specific case in the specific area where the case is occurring, is very prompt in his contact with everyone involved in the case, is courteous and polite, does not waste your time with BS yet doesn't rush you into things, and is definitely willing to fight for you and try your case (the defense will know this).
I would absolutely call Russell R Hatten again and strongly refer him to anyone in Colordado.

Top review for Russ Hatten. He represented me in a car-related bicycle crash during 2014 in which the driver was at fault but there were no independent witnesses to the crash. Mr. Hatten was superior in his initiative and knowledge of the law and local/state processes, and he was highly effective on the case, achieving the best possible results for me as his client. He displayed competence and ethics in all elements of the legal action. Finally, Russ was a personable gentleman who was great to work with. I would highly recommend him as an advocate for injury-related actions.
