he Hustead Law Firm, A Professional Corporation, launched in 1996 when Patrick Q. Hustead left the partnership of one of Denver's largest law firms with a single mission: create a dedicated litigation practice that will be the last firm our clients ever hire. Since that time, the Firm has grown into a dynamic mix of attorneys and technology that produces the results our clients deserve and expect.  From complex insurance matters to the toughest commercial litigation, we deliver you the firepower of a large firm with the personal attention of a small one. 

Does your case require swift, inexpensive resolution?  A relentless trial campaign?  We have the tools and character to deliver what the situation demands.  We understand that you need clever attorneys with an abundance of energy.  Attorneys that are respected, accomplished and published in their fields.  Add attorneys who are thinking about your case around the clock and you have The Hustead Law Firm.       

The evidence?  The Firm has never lost a client.  We earned Martindale-Hubbell’s top rating.  Time and time again we settle cases and achieve trial results far beyond our client's expectations.  We analyze and develop defenses our clients did not know existed.  We avoid surprises and we win.

The Rocky Mountain legal landscape includes both small towns and urban centers.  We know how to operate in both.  Our attorneys have tried and argued cases along the Continental Divide from the Canadian to the Mexican border.  We understand the judges and the juries.

Most of all, we understand our clients.  When we are hired, we work together to develop The Solution.  We return calls the same day.  We provide regular, concise reports, but do not bury our clients in needless and costly phone calls and paper.  We submit fair, reasonable, clear bills.

Our job is to understand the case first, before the opposition, to spot opportunities and assess pitfalls.  Armed with this understanding, we use our proven ability to develop the facts to put our clients into a position of power.  Our verdicts and settlements prove it.
