Firm Details

Reilly Pozner LLP is a trial firm with a national practice in state and federal trial and appellate courts. Reilly Pozner was established in 2000 by veteran trial attorneys who wanted to construct an environment of top-notch lawyers in a collegial atmosphere who represent plaintiffs and defendants in a wide range of complex civil matters and the defense of criminal cases.

The firm focuses primarily on matters that involve significant liability exposure with a high likelihood of going to trial. The firm’s success stems from its rigorous trial preparation. The lawyers of Reilly Pozner approach each case as if it will go to trial and work very closely with their clients to identify the trial themes and issues upon which the case will be decided. As a result, the firm engages in more focused and cost-effective pretrial discovery and motion practice. This litigation posture pays dividends to clients, whether the ultimate resolution of their case is by settlement or verdict.

The firm’s trial orientation is both recognized and sought after by its national client base. The lawyers of Reilly Pozner appear as lead counsel for Fortune 500 companies throughout the United States and at any particular time they are lead counsel in matters in many states.  Reilly Pozner’s trial practice is augmented by an appellate team led by a former appellate judge and nationally recognized advocate. 

The firm develops the demonstrative evidence it uses at trial and in hearings in-house through its own litigation graphics department. This, coupled with the firm’s substantial experience in fast-track litigation, allows the firm to successfully advocate a client’s position in temporary restraining order, preliminary injunction, and other expedited proceedings within days after being retained. 

Reilly Pozner serves its national client base by employing a seasoned legal and paralegal staff. Consequently, the firm is able to provide an exceptionally high level of legal services by veteran trial teams. The firm is also committed to improving diversity in the legal community.

Reilly Pozner’s lawyers are acknowledged leaders in trial advocacy. The firm’s partners are consistently listed in “The Best Lawyers in America” publication under the categories such as Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, Personal Injury and Criminal Defense (White Collar and Non-White Collar). The firm and its attorneys are annually ranked in the international legal publication “Chambers USA” in top tiers for Litigation: General Commercial and Litigation: White-Collar & Government Investigations.  In 2014, over 75% of our attorneys were listed in the “Colorado Super Lawyers” publication and are further distinguished as being in the top 50 and top 10 of Colorado lawyers overall. The firm’s partners are AV rated through Martindale-Hubbell’s peer review system.  In 2012, the firm was named to the National Law Journal’s “Litigation Boutiques Hot List.”

Moreover, Reilly Pozner’s partners are professional lecturers and are invited to speak regularly at national conferences, judicial conferences, CLE programs for specialized bars and in-house CLEs for selected clients.
