Karman J. Reed
Karman Reed has dedicated her career to medical malpractice, wrongful death, and complex civil litigation cases at both the trial and appellate levels. She has extensive experience handling cases at all stages of litigation, making her a perfect fit for Denver Trial Lawyers. She understands that many key issues in a case are determined long before it reaches the jury. Through discovery and motions practice, Karman strategically develops her cases from the outset to limit the claims and defenses available to the opposition, frequently resulting in pre-trial resolution of the litigation. In trial, Karman uses the strategic foundation she laid throughout the case to obtain favorable results for her clients.
Karman began her legal practice in Oklahoma, following in her father’s footsteps by representing severely injured patients in medical malpractice actions. In 2016, she moved to Colorado and spent five years defending medical negligence actions before returning to the plaintiff’s side. As a result of her experience, Karman has a thorough understanding of both sides of medical malpractice cases, enabling her to craft winning strategies that catch the opposition off-guard.
Karman’s areas of focus in medical litigation include:
- OB/GYN and birth injuries
- General surgery
- Critical care medicine
- Internal medicine
- Emergency medicine
- Orthopedic surgery
Karman graduated with distinction from the University of Tulsa College of Law. She received her undergraduate degree in business from the University of Oklahoma, graduating in three years and with distinction. She is a member of numerous professional organizations including the Colorado Bar Association, the Denver Bar Association, the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, and the Oklahoma Bar Association.
In her free time, Karman and her husband stay busy keeping up with their young son. She and her husband love skiing and hiking (nine 14ers and counting) and enjoy introducing their son to all the beauty Colorado has to offer, even when he thinks he needs to add rocks to hiking backpacks.
