“I’ve never met more dedicated lawyers than those at HHMR. The recognition of David Higgins could not be more appropriate given the years that he dedicated to the industry,” said McLain. “No one is more deserving of the honor of a 2010 Colorado Super Lawyer® than David is, and now that he has slowed down, it is assuring to see that the firm also contains the next generation of outstanding construction litigation attorneys.
