DOES YOUR FIRM HAVE A PROUDEST MOMENT?
- posted: Jul. 04, 2016
I once had a client asked that question, and I was stumped. So, I asked my partner Steve Silvern for his thoughts. Steve won prestigious academic awards in college at Cal-Berkley including Phi Beta Kappa and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship, and graduated from UCLA law School where he was named Rosco Pound Advocate in 1972. However, instead of going to work for a large corporate law firm or the government, Steve was determined to use his education to help regular people. He left California for Colorado in 1973 and gained experience in a small law firm and a non-profit voting rights organization, before starting this law firm in January, 1977. Steve has been involved as co-counsel in winning large trial verdicts in high-profile cases but is equally proud of the thousands of quiet, fair settlements he and his partners have achieved for our clients. He is most proud of the result in Nasca v. State Farm, where we established the national precedent that arbitrators who decide insurance claims must disclose their business relationships with the insurance company.
