Laura M. Martinez
Laura has been a litigator since the inception of her legal career. As a result, she has broad experience in a variety of civil litigation areas ranging from real estate litigation to defamation. It is this broad knowledge base that allows her to provide extraordinary guidance to clients.
Laura handles both small cases and extremely complex multiparty litigation and ensures that each case (whether big or small) is provided the same attention and focus. She recently secured a jury verdict of $722,250 in a Plaintiff’s personal injury trial, and in a separate matter obtained a verdict of $500,000 on a counterclaim. In fact, Laura obtained the 12th highest jury trial verdict awarded in the State of Colorado in 2017.
In addition to her litigation practice, Laura handles alcoholic beverage licensing matters for restaurants, bars, nightclubs, breweries, wineries, distilleries, and other retail outlets throughout Colorado. Laura’s litigation practice goes hand-in-hand with her licensing work by assisting clients in a host of issues related to commercial enterprises.
A Colorado native, Laura grew up in the Westwood neighborhood of Denver and the Belmar area of Lakewood. Outside of the office Laura enjoys spending time with her husband and two sons.
