HLF Profile

Practice Areas






         The Hustead Law Firm specializes in the representation of insurers in all facets of their claim operations, and has developed a reputation as the go-to firm in Colorado for complex coverage opinions. Why? When warranted, we are not afraid to recommend a denial. We have litigated coverage and bad faith actions all over the Midwest and Rocky Mountains. We are not afraid to try a coverage case.

          Our results speak for themselves. Recently, the Firm won over $1,000,000 for an insurer in a coverage dispute against another insurer that could have been settled for a third of that amount. We do this by staying focused on the big picture; a step ahead of the adversary.

          Please see the HLF Territory Map for an idea as to where we work. We do not charge for travel time to the location of a case outside Colorado. We become the local law firm.
