A Successful Denver Personal Injury Attorney

Mike Kane is a partner at the Denver Trial Lawyers ®. He specializes in trucking, auto, medical malpractice and catastrophic injury litigation. He also represents victims of sexual assault against institutions and individuals.

Mr. Kane is a former US Marine who served a combat tour in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. After leaving the military, he returned to Colorado and served as a Deputy District Attorney in the Arapahoe and Douglas County DA’s Offices. As a prosecutor, he tried over 50 jury trials ranging from homicide and sexual assault to traffic infractions. He then entered civil practice and has focused exclusively on the representation of injured plaintiffs. Highlights of his civil practice include a $5 million-dollar jury verdict against a commercial bus company and an $8 million-dollar settlement in a contested liability trucking case. In 2014 he tried two successful jury trials in two consecutive weeks, resulting in verdicts in excess of $1.2 million on behalf of his clients. In 2019 Mr. Kane represented a young woman who was sexually assaulted by her elementary school teacher. He negotiated the highest known individual settlement in Colorado history for claims brought against a school district.

Mr. Kane is known as an aggressive litigator and believes in taking the fight to the insurance companies.
