Murray Ogborn has represented clients and tried many cases across the country. He is an innovator in the development of jury communication and is nationally known for using storytelling, case thematic techniques, and focus groups in the preparation and trial of cases. Murray not only personally tries cases, but other trial lawyers from around the country hire him to conduct focus groups and consult on their cases. Murray is the founder of the Harvard Ultimate College of Trial Advocacy, sponsored by the Association of Trial Lawyers of America (now the American Association for Justice). Murray was named Best of the Bar by the Denver Business Journal; named by Best Lawyers in America® as 2020’s Lawyer of the Year in the field of Plaintiffs’ Professional Malpractice, as well as Best Lawyers in America® in Plaintiffs’ Personal Injury law; and has been selected as a Colorado Super Lawyer® by the magazine 5280 each year since the beginning of the award in 2006. Murray has served as President of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. He is a communicator. Whether the audience is a jury, judge, mediator or business leaders, he finds the bond and connects. Sincere, direct and persuasive.
Murray’s trial skills have been tested in state and federal courts throughout the country, and on behalf of both plaintiffs and defendants. The range of his advocacy extends from personal injury and commercial litigation to insurance bad faith. In addition to trying cases, Murray frequently consults with other lawyers and companies about litigation. Through Mojo Consulting, Murray conducts focus groups for his clients at all stages of litigation, from pre-trial discovery, to testing theories of liability and damages and prior to trial.
Prior to forming Ogborn Mihm, LLP in 2012, Murray practiced in South Dakota, Nebraska, and Colorado. Locally, he is a stalwart of the legal community, having served as President of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.
