Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I am a trial attorney focused on serving clients in the areas of insurance coverage, securities litigation, and white collar criminal defense. I have represented mutual funds, corporations, Native American tribes, law firms, accounting firms, small businesses, and individuals as both plaintiffs and defendants in a variety of high-stakes disputes. Through my experience in private practice and as a former prosecutor, I have tried nearly fifty jury trials to verdict. In the area of insurance coverage, I have represented policyholders and other insureds in coverage disputes and civil actions alleging bad faith on the part of the insurer. These disputes have involved a variety of different insurance policies, including directors and officers liability (“D&O”), errors and omissions (“E&O”), commercial general liability (“CGL”), title insurance, and uninsured/underinsured motorist (“UM/UIM”) coverage. My current focus is cyber liability insurance coverage. I have also represented individuals and businesses in numerous civil actions alleging business torts, including securities fraud, fraudulent misrepresentation, conspiracy, breach of fiduciary duty, and violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (“RICO”). In the area of white collar criminal defense, I have represented individuals investigated for and charged with white collar offenses, including insider trading, securities fraud, health care fraud, and embezzlement. I have also conducted internal investigations for businesses seeking to discover and remedy criminal or regulatory violations. My experience before joining Pestotnik LLP includes practicing with Arnold & Porter LLP and serving as a Deputy District Attorney in the Economic Crime Unit of the Denver District Attorney's Office. I have tried numerous cases to verdict, including several first degree murder trials and several multi-million dollar civil trials.
