Litigation in State and Federal Courts

  Do you have a real estate contract that has gone bad?
Is your competitor using and infringing on your trademark or patent?
Did your contractor not do what you expected?
Have you been sued?

The lawyers at Hanes & Bartels have experience in all types of civil cases. We have brought lawsuits and have defended lawsuits for many satisfied clients. We bring our legal knowledge, our practical experience and our common sense and intuition to each and every situation. We listen to our clients, assess their situation and their needs and goals and work with them to get results.
The firm and its attorneys are committed to aggressive trial advocacy combined with professionalism and civility to courts, opposing parties and counsel. The guiding principle for the firmís litigation practice is preparedness. While a fair settlement is often more appealing than proceeding to a full trial, opposing counsel will always understand that we are prepared and able to conduct rigorous and thorough trials and appeals if reasonable attempts to settle are unsuccessful. A clientís best interest will never be sacrificed because we are unprepared for trial.

One or more of the firmís attorneys are admitted to practice in Colorado, Nebraska and Arizona and are admitted to the state and federal courts of those states as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. We have been involved as litigation counsel in cases throughout Colorado, including the Front Range, the San Luis Valley and points east, west, north and south. In Federal and State courts, we have litigated cases across the nation, and internationally, including New York, Wisconsin, Texas, Nebraska, Arizona, Utah, and Japan.

Our areas of trial and appeal expertise include real estate, business transactions, personal injury, special governmental districts, aviation and intellectual property, including patents, trademarks and copyrights.

Contact us today (719-260-7900) if you need experienced, knowledgeable, aggressive attorneys who are on your side from the first minute through the end result.

We have been involved in a significant number of complex cases, mostly with excellent results. Some were appealed and have been reported. Others were not appealed or a written opinion was not rendered and was not reported. A significant number of cases in which the firm has been involved were resolved without a trial.
