From the time David J. Mintz graduated from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 1980 he knew he wanted to help people in their claims against corporations and insurance companies.

Since 1980, for thirty two years, David J. Mintz has represented thousands of people against the interests of big companies, such as insurance companies. He has put together a staff of lawyers and paralegals at the Mintz Law Firm, LLC that all believe in the same philosophy – that is getting people generous compensation for their injuries is the most important thing, more so than the insurance company’s bottom line.

David lives in Clear Creek County, Colorado, and represents many folks in the mountain community. A large part of his practice is generated by referrals of previous clients who believe they got great results and were treated with great respect by the firm, and that the firm “shot straight” with them.

David has interests in martial arts and motorcycle riding. He has represented many clients injured on their motorcycles. He has always wanted to go the extra mile for his clients. He oversees the running of the Mintz Law Firm, LLC and if there is an issue with respect to a client’s satisfaction, he tries to make sure that his firm and attorneys do the right thing.

Great firm, changed my view of lawyers forever. I will never hire a different attorney
Any show of appreciation I have made is truly sincere.My brother in law got in a wreck 2 months before I got hurt,his claim is still unsettled and he has no idea,not even a 'ball park figure' of what they are even asking for on his behalf. Seeing how his lawyer is makes me appreciate you and your team even more. As far as having any questions I do not,you keep me very well informed of everything I need to know. So again,a ton of thanks.YOU ROCK!! Cynthia.

I had a great experience with the Mintz Law Firm
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. All I ever wanted was to be fairly treated, both medically and financially in this matter. I also realize my situation created some challenges taking work out of state. You were always honest and forthright, on how and what to expect, kept pushing through the ugliness of the work comp system, all to bring this to closure. The way this system treats people is abhorrent and disgraceful. Throughout this process you helped me maintain hope that something fair would result in the end. Wishing you the best of health and happiness for you and yours.

Great Experience with David Mintz and the Mintz Law Firm
I hired the Lakewood injury lawyers at the Mintz Law Firm to handle my Colorado personal injury car accident case. I was always able to reach my personal injury attorney, and my questions regarding my motor vehicle accident claim were always answered timely. My car accident lawyer and paralegal explained things to me clearly in a way I could understand, and if there was ever anything I did not understand about my automobile accident claim the accident attorneys at the Mintz Law Firm were patient and explained things in an alternative way. I would have never received the amount of money in my motor vehicle accident settlement without the personal injury attorneys at the Mintz Law Firm.

Great Car Accident Attorney
I nearly cut off my hand while working a saw, and was afraid I would lose my hand. I tried many personal injury attorneys but they all turned me down…my medical costs were getting worse and didn’t know how to pay for my treatment or where to go- until I found the Mintz Law Firm. Unlike the other law firms I visited, David Mintz treated me like a member of the family. I knew I was in good “hands.” Specialists in personal injury claims, the Mintz Law Firm helped me get medical treatment and I walked away with enough money to cover my future medical care. The lawyers who handled my case were knowledgeable and efficient- now my hand is in good condition and I can get back to work. I never had any experience with a firm prior to Mintz but I would never consider trusting anyone else with my injuries!

It is truly statements like this which make it all worth while. I do get involved in the cases as much as necessary and shoot straight with clients so they know exactly what the scope of the representation will entail. Best Wishes, David Mintz, Esq.

Trustworthy and Friendly Attorney
My name is Anne and I hired the Mintz Law Firm to help me after I was injured at a rental home. I fell and hurt my back because a stair at the rental property disintegrated under my foot. Originally, I thought I would be able to deal with the insurance company directly. Soon, however, I found out that I was in for the fight of my life. Finally, after speaking with David Mintz, I managed to resolve my case with the insurance company, paid my medical bills, and put some money aside for future medical care. I would never think about going it alone now that I've had the Mintz Law Firm by my side.

Excellent and Caring Attorney
Thank you once again for helping us settle this case. We cannot thank you enough for taking our case which was relatively small. Your dedication for justice on our behalf was exemplary. You always made us feel listened to and respected. You helped us nearly double the settlement that was initially offered to us by the insurance company and even though we didn't walk away with as much as we had hoped for, it was more than enough to bolster our moral victory in a fight that was impossible for us to wage on our own. We are thankful to you and your team for your time, energy, and efforts. We will be recommending you to those we come into contact with as a law firm that is respectable and trustworthy. Thank you, Ryan and Ishtar Khan

Best Attorney Ever
Mr. Mintz took on my case after the insurance company told me they had closed my case and were not going to do anything for me. After hiring David Mintz at the Mintz Law Firm, I got $80,000.00.

Thank you Virginia, I enjoyed representing you and your health and happiness brings me great pleasure. David Mintz, Esq

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2005.

This means that the attorney's misconduct in another state also violated the rules for practicing law in New York.

Suspension Stayed Placed on Probation issued in CO, 2005
updated on 03/28/2017

Suspension stayed means the attorney has been disciplined, but that the suspension is placed on hold (and ultimately removed) if the attorney complies with probation requirements.

David's comment: “This decision was overturned by the Apellate Court”

"I have had the honor of knowing David Mintz and witnessing, whether through in-depth discussions with him regarding legal cases or watching his interactions with clients, striking qualities that he brings to the practice of law. After practicing law for almost 35 years, he has developed a profound understanding of not only the law, but the art of working with medical providers, insurance adjusters, and opposing counsel to ensure that cases settle for the maximum amount possible. He is a highly effective lawyer because of a sincere desire for his clients to prosper financially, medically, and emotionally. By holding a feeling of genuine concern for clients and not simply seeing them as a cold, one-time business transaction, the result is the extra drive to maximize what can be achieved in the clients’ benefit. Clients feel that they are being cared for and respected and these positive feelings toward an attorney will permeate into a general respect for the entire legal profession."
