The Litigation Section handles all personal injury claims, property damage cases, and civil rights and constitutional claims brought against Denver.  The attorneys regularly appear in all federal and state courts, as well as in administrative hearings.  They also represent Denver, the third largest employer in the State of Colorado, in all employment matters.  These matters include:
  • personnel issues and discipline matters;
  • discrimination claims;
  • drafting ordinances and Career Service Rules;
  • worker’s compensation claims; and
  • collective bargaining with the Denver Police, Sheriff and Fire Departments.
