In founding Zaner Harden Law, we had the goal of providing the most personalized of representation to the clients we welcome into the ZHL family.

At the end of the day, legal talent blended with knowledge, creativity and willpower wins cases.
When you become a client at Zaner Harden Law, you can feel confident that you have the very best trial lawyers fighting on your behalf. During our legal careers, we have collected a long list of impressive results for hundreds of clients across the country. Focusing our efforts on Colorado, we have helped our injured clients recover tens of millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts. On our ZH News page, you can learn more about the following recent verdicts we have obtained in Colorado for our clients.
In November of 2013, we obtained a million dollar verdict at trial in Fort Collins where the Defense had only offered $40,000.00. Our client had suffered a traumatic brain injury and yet the insurance company didn’t believe him; the jury found just the opposite.
In September of 2014, after a five day trial in Denver, a jury returned a verdict of $2,500,000.00 in a wrongful death case. The family lost their son when a suspected drunk driver turned left in front of him. Despite the Police testifying at trial that the other driver did nothing wrong in making the left hand turn, the jury sent a message that drunk drivers that flee the scene will be held accountable.
In March of 2015, an Arapahoe County Jury found an Arapahoe County Dump Truck driver responsible for driving over and crushing our client’s legs while he was riding his bicycle. Arapahoe County offered zero dollars before trial; as result of the victory, See video here. Arapahoe County will have to pay the entire amount of the governmental immunity cap.
In April of 2015, we obtained a four hundred thousand dollar verdict at trial for our client who had suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car crash and could no longer work as a nurse; State Farm had only offered $80,000.00 prior to trial.
In January of 2016, we obtained over a half a million dollar verdict against our client’s own insurance company, American Family Insurance. Our client, a hardworking Colorado native who spent his life repairing HVACs, was offered zero by his own insurance company after a negligent driver smashed into his car and left his shoulder and his career in pieces. Although his medical bills were only $12,000.00, we showed the jury his real world loss and the jury fairly compensated him.
In May of 2016, we obtained a 1.5 million dollar settlement prior to trial for our client in Castle Rock who suffered a traumatic brain injury after being knocked off his bicycle. Given our track record of repeatedly beating the insurance companies, both State Farm and Liberty Mutual paid the maximum amount of the policies allowing our client to avoid trial.
In February of 2017, we obtained a 1.7 million dollar verdict against Hunting Titan and Zurich Insurance. Hunting Titan’s truck driver ran over our client in a parking lot while on his cell phone. The Defendant blamed our client for parking too close. The crash fractured our client’s pelvis in two places, causing extreme pain and months of rehabilitation. Prior to trial, the Defendant offered $350,000.00. By highlighting the recklessness of driving distracted, and compassionately and emotionally telling the story of our client, we achieved a heroic victory wherein the jury found the Defendants entirely at fault.

He didn't make false promises, but was a strong and dedicated advocate. In fact, due to his hard-work, my case was resolved without me ever having to go to court – and it was the best result possible."
I was injured by a drunk driver and went through a really tough time. The legal services provided by Marc Harden and Zaner Harden Law were excellent. Marc and his team were always very quick to respond to my needs – they were always there to help me.

Kurt represented me on my case, and I could not have asked for a better outcome. He did an excellent job helping me understand my options and what to expect. Throughout the entire process, he was always easily reachable and thoroughly answered all my questions. I strongly recommend Kurt and consider myself extremely fortunate to have found such a great attorney!
I was very satisfied with the ease of contact, knowledge, professionalism, and courtesy displayed by Marc Harden and everybody else I came into contact with at Zaner Harden Law. I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case… I will highly recommend this law firm to everybody.
Shayne, Aurora, CO, injured in auto collision
Kurt Zaner is a true professional lawyer who also made me feel like an actual person with a case that mattered to him. I was in a situation where I needed to take my case to trial and was unwilling to settle the case for anything less. I interviewed two other lawyers and selected Kurt...I am thankful that I did! He is a recognized expert in his field and he got me the exact result I was praying for.
“I took my case to Marc after I had surgery and the statute of limitations on my case was about to expire. The insurance company for the driver that hit me was offering to pay me less than the amount of my medical bills. Marc jumped on the case and filed a lawsuit for me. After a few months of litigation, we were able to get a great settlement without having to go to trial.”
Jennifer S., Lakewood, CO
From day one, Marc and Kurt have been on my side. They made me feel very comfortable and welcome, answered all of my questions – even the ones I did not know how to ask. I am very grateful to have had them in my life.

Mr. Zaner truly cared about me as a person, and was more concerned about helping me through the process than just getting my money. This is something you cannot say about many other attorneys. He was available anytime with answers to my many questions; questions that came up all the way through the process. He informed me honestly of what to expect throughout, and kept me well-prepared. If you want to be represented by one of the best attorney’s in Colorado, I recommend you give Mr. Zaner a call. I cannot thank him enough for what he did for me. Trust me; he won’t let you down either.
“After my car accident, I had huge medical bills and I didn’t have any way to get treatment. Marc helped me get the care I needed. After I was better, when the insurance company tried to low-ball me, Marc took my case to trial. I was blown away by how well we did. I would recommend Marc to anybody looking for a personal injury lawyer.”
Kathleen H. in Aurora, CO
Its amazing how many times I have seen the court room and this is the only time I feel I have ever seen the right thing happen. I was definitely a little overwhelmed the last day or so of trial but now I can finally start to pick up the pieces of my life now that this is over. Kurt was amazing in trial – the other attorney never had a chance. Its a great feeling and I knew I picked the right lawyer when a juror asked Kurt for his business card after the trial. I can’t thank Kurt enough for all he has done for me.
When searching for an attorney you meet some characters. For me the unknown surrounding the process, and outcome was extremely frightening. Upon meeting Kurt Zaner and his affiliates I immediately felt a sense of relief. I was still very frightened, but I now had someone who had my back. I had no doubt Kurt had my best interest in mind. He walked me through the process every step of the way. I honestly can't express how grateful and satisfied I am with the outcome of my case. Kurt Zaner now has a client for life.
When I was hurt in a bad crash by a contractor’s truck, I didn’t know where to turn. Luckily, I found Marc Harden and Zaner Harden Law. Marc and his team displayed the utmost respect, kindness, and professionalism. My questions were always answered quickly and thoroughly. The professionals at Zaner Harden Law were always available and never once made me feel uncomfortable…I’m very grateful for their representation and thank them!

Dismissal of Felony Drug Charge, Adams, CO
When I got into a car accident, I didn’t know what to do. My injuries prevented me from taking care of my newborn child and I didn’t know how I would pay the medical bills and repair my car. Kurt took care of everything – once he was on the case, I put all of my worries on him and he came through. Within months I had received medical treatment, a new car, and an unexpected settlement check. I had no idea things would turn out so well.

Marc has become a part of our family. Over the years my wife and I have had various disputes with insurance companies. Marc has always jumped right in – helping to right the wrong and get our lives right back on track.

I hurt my back when I was struck while riding a motorcycle. I was worried about how I was going to pay for the expensive medical treatment that my doctors told me I would need the rest of my life. Marc took my case to trial and was able to get me several
hundreds of thousands of dollars more than the insurance company offered to settle my case for.
