All of these verdicts have been paid and many defended at the Court of Appeals. None of them have been overturned. All of these verdicts lead to better settlements for our clients who do not go to trial. In just the past few years we have settled cases for 6 million, 2.5 million for motorcycle crashes, and the list goes on and on.

In their limited free time, the partners choose to spend it perfecting their craft by working with trial lawyers across the state and across the country to stay current with the most innovative trial and legal techniques to benefit their clients. In Colorado, Marc serves on the board of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) and is a past recipient of New Trial Lawyer of the Year Award. Kurt also serves on the board of CTLA, and as President of the 5,000 member NLD committee of AAJ – the National Trial Lawyers organization. Both partners have been published, both in the state and national publications. Most importantly, as recognized experts in their field, both are asked to teach around the Country to other lawyers – educating their peers on Zaner Harden Law’s innovative personal injury techniques. We speak at national and state conventions every year, including in our own backyard in Colorado.
We limit a number of clients that our firm accepts so that each client can be assured that they have full access to all our firm’s resources. We never want you to feel like a file – you are a person, with real problems and team fighting to solve them. We treat each client as a family member. Of course, this means that we cannot accept every case that comes through our door – we have to carefully screen our clients to make sure each receives the very best representation.
The best way to find out how hard a law firm fights, and how successful they are in those fights, is to talk to former clients. We invite all potential clients to do their independent research online about our firm. Look at third party sites that verify reviews like Google, Yelp, Facebook, and Thumbtack. Or check out the premier lawyer rating service, AVVO, which rates lawyers based on their credentials and reviews. You will find that we have over 200 plus 5-star reviews across these sites.

We have some of the very best paralegals in Colorado and the Country – award winning, college educated, and committed. We want you to feel like part of the family when you become a client, and each of our team members works tirelessly to provide this concierge level service.
Your case may never go to trial. While some clients want their stories told to a jury, for others, the thought of going to trial is intimidating and unpleasant. The truth is, regardless of which group you fall into, you create your best chance at a successful outcome when you put your case into the capable hands of a confident, aggressive, and skilled trial lawyer.
This is because most cases do not go to trial. But with a true trial lawyer by your side from the start, you create the conditions for the best possible outcome prior to trial. A true trial lawyer creates risk to your opponent – whether it be an insurance company or a district attorney – risk of an outstanding result for you and an embarrassing loss to your opponent if your case goes to trial and is heard by a jury. If you want to settle, this is how you get the best offer.
Don’t just hire a settlement lawyer. If you hire a lawyer that does not try cases or doesn’t try them well, you are hiring just another “settlement” lawyer. The insurance companies and prosecutors know these “settlement” lawyers well, and they know these lawyers do not present any threat or risk. If they know that you will never go to trial, or that you pose no real threat at trial, they will only present low-ball offers and bad deals; this is because they know that settlement lawyers don’t have the chops, willpower, or talent to hold them accountable.
With a true trial lawyer by your side, you optimize your chances for a great result without ever having to step foot into a courtroom. A true trial lawyer prepares every case as if there is the real possibility of trial for their client. A true trial lawyer loves his craft and pours his heart into winning the case for his client. A true trial lawyer helps his client find the courage to reject the low ball offers and bad deals because he is confident that he will prepare his case and client well for trial.
Insurance companies and prosecutors know who these true trial lawyers are and they know they cannot be bullied. If your case is one of the few that has to go to trial, you can be confident that you are protected by the very best at trial law. While we will do everything we can to get you the settlement or deal that you want before trial, we are ready and willing to go to trial on your behalf if it becomes necessary. We love what we do and we take our dedication to our craft seriously. We have the results and experience to back it up and we welcome the opportunity to fight for you.
Whether you want to settle your case before trial or have your day in court, you will want a true trial lawyer by your side, every step of the way. Click here to contact us today for a free consultation.
