I am a founding member of Higgins, Hopkins, McLain & Roswell, LLC, a firm which specializes in construction defect and general civil litigation throughout Colorado. I received my undergraduate degree from Colorado State University, graduating cum laude, and my law degree from the University of Denver, College of Law. I have a general civil litigation practice with an emphasis on the defense of complex construction lawsuits on behalf of developers and general contractors. As a result of the experience gained by defending some of Colorado’s largest residential construction defect lawsuits, developers, general contractors, and subcontractors seek me out to consult on risk avoidance and risk management strategies. Currently among my clients are several of the state’s largest homebuilders, regional and custom builders, a Fortune 200 company, and numerous insurance carriers. I am an AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell and am a regular speaker at seminars regarding construction defect litigation in Colorado. In addition, I have often served as an instructor for the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Denver’s Quality Construction Certification program.
