ABOUT US For almost four decades, Best Lawyers lists have been compiled by conducting exhaustive peer-review surveys in which tens of thousands of leading lawyers confidentially evaluate their professional peers. If the votes for an attorney are positive enough for inclusion in Best Lawyers, that attorney must maintain those votes in subsequent polls to remain on the list for each edition. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be included on our lists.

METRO MAP Best Lawyers-designated “metro areas” in this publication.

BOULDER

In order to collect feedback on firm and attorney work within specific regions, Best Lawyers curates “metro areas.” For research purposes, smaller and more rural cities located within a reasonable distance to larger cities are combined into single geographical regions—metro areas—to help us collect as much feedback and data for specific individuals, firms, and practice areas as possible. We also award “Lawyer of the Year” accolades through these metro area distinctions.

TRIBAL SOVEREIGNTY OR DISCRIMINATION? The Indian Child Welfare Act was designed to help keep Native American children from being adopted outside their tribes. Now it’s under threat. By Janice Zhou ISTOCK.COM/OLEKSII LISKONIH ISTOCK.COM/ALEX LINCH ISTOCK.COM/MARILYN NIEVES


T

he 41-year-old Indian Child Welfare Act

(ICWA) has been recently challenged and may come before Supreme Court next year.

The law was enacted in 1978 to “protect the best interest of Indian children and promote the stability and security of Indian tribes and families by the establishment of minimum federal standards for the removal of Indian children and placement of such children in homes which will reflect the unique values of Indian culture.” The constitutionality of ICWA was called into question in Texas when two foster parents, neither of whom is Native American, wanted to adopt a boy who is half Navajo and half Cherokee. The federal judge ruled in the parent’s favor, declaring that the law was unconstitutional because it was based on race. However, the case was appealed to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals where a three-judge panel overturned the District Court’s opinion.

“The constitutionality of ICWA was called into question in Texas when two foster parents, neither of whom is Native American, wanted to adopt a boy who is half Navajo and half Cherokee.” According to the National Indian Child Welfare Association, they believe the plaintiffs will petition the Supreme Court. We talked to a Best Lawyers-recognized attorney who specializes in Native American law in Colorado to get her thoughts on the Indian Child Welfare Act and the challenges to it:

Melody McCoy

Native American Rights Fund Recognized for Native American Law since 2013 Named 2020 “Lawyer of the Year” in Native American Law, Boulder

I N TH E L AW

Who do you think is benefiting from challenging the act? Four decades later, ICWA is under attack, mostly by private for-profit adoption agencies that have a financial incentive to see more Native American children available for adoption through their services, as well as ideologists who object generally to the limited separate and independent legal and political status of Native American tribes in the United States.

How did the creation of the act help the Native American population? In 1978, Congress enacted the Indian Child Welfare Act, based on Congress’ power to regulate Native American tribes and its policy of protecting tribal interests, to better regulate proceedings in state and tribal courts for termination of parental rights, adoptions, and foster care placement cases involving Native American children, based on well-documented evidence of Native American children being disproportionately—as many as 85 percent nationwide—removed from their families, communities, and tribes without notice and other due process protections.

How will this specifically affect Colorado if it is overturned? If ICWA is found to be unconstitutional—either on the basis that it illegally discriminates based on race, in violation of the Fifth Amendment’s equal protection guarantee, or that it places unconstitutional burdens on state agencies and courts, or that it exceeds congressional power—it will affect Native Americans throughout the country, including the estimated 60-70,000 Native Americans residing in Colorado. Tribes will lose the rights and protections for adoption and placement of Native American children that the act provides, and Native American children likely again will be taken from their tribes, communities, and families.

Paula Greisen Litigation - Labor & Employment Denver, CO Protecting the rights of those whose voices have been silenced: that is what Paula Greisen does as an attorney. Greisen is a partner at King & Greisen, LLP who specializes in employment litigation, has been named the Best Lawyers® 2020 Litigation – Labor and Employment “Lawyer of the Year” in Denver. Her practice focuses on all aspects of employment discrimination, the advancement and protection of LGBTQ rights, and government-abuseof-power cases. One notable case of hers was the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop Ltd v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission. The 2018 case started when a cakeshop owner refused to create a wedding cake for same-sex couple Charlie Craig and David Mullins due to his religious beliefs. Greisen was the lead trial lawyer representing the gay couple. “I’m very proud of my involvement. Charlie Craig and David Mullins are still a part of my family,” Greisen said. “It meant a lot to me personally and professionally because I strongly believe in protection of those rights.” Greisen also represented Lindsay Saunders-Velez, a 20-year-old transgender woman, pro bono in her lawsuit against the Colorado Department of Corrections for “discriminatory and dangerous” conditions. Saunders-Velez was transferred to a men’s prison from a center for female juveniles.

Even with these two high-profile cases, Greisen couldn’t pick which one she was the proudest of. “We get the privilege to work on cases that have a tremendous impact on someone’s life and emotional wellbeing,” she said. “In that moment, in that day, [the case at hand] is the most important thing. We give the disenfranchised a voice. Nothing could make me prouder.” On the flip side, there are challenging aspects to handling cases like these. “It’s somebody’s well-being and dignity,” she said. “Sometimes there are no ways to heal or help heal through the legal system. The high emotional level makes it challenging but also most rewarding.” Helping others was something Greisen had learned from a young age, which played a part in her decision to pursue law. Her father was a marine, and her mother was a legal-aid worker. “Service in one capacity has always been in our family,” Greisen said. When asked about if her compassion is the reason why she was a leader in her field and what she thought makes a great lawyer in that practice area, Greisen could only applaud others in her community. “I don’t think I’m anymore compassionate than anyone else,” she said. “In this community, we have this amazing group who protect civil rights.” W W W.BESTL AW Y ERS.COM

BIG WINS FROM COAST TO COAST Founder Michael S. Burg Discusses How Burg Simpson’s Lawyers Secured Major Verdicts in Some of the Nation’s Most Unique Cases in 2019 BY JUSTIN SMULISON

B

urg Simpson Eldredge Hersh & Jardine, P.C. is one of the country’s most successful plaintiffs’ law firms. Headquartered in Denver, CO, with offices in Arizona, Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, and Wyoming, the firm represents clients nationwide and focuses on cases that include mass tort, class action, personal injury, construction defects, medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, a nd complex busi ness a nd commercial litigation. Since its inception in 1976, the firm’s accomplishments include thousands of favorable verdicts and settlements that exceed $1 billion. The trial lawyers at Burg Simpson completed 2019 with a signif ica nt victor y by securing a verdict of $58.5 million in compensatory and punitive damages for families who had donated bodies of their deceased loved ones to Biological Resource Center (BRC). The lawsuit was led by shareholders Michael S. Burg, David K. TeSelle, and Holly B. Kammerer, and the verdict is one of the largest civil case results in Arizona history. 8 | COLORADO

The complaint alleged that BRC led a black-market industry scheme in which they profited from selling a nd traff icking huma n body pa rts that donors had intended for scientific study. Burg Simpson filed a claim against the owners of BRC for mishandling remains of donated bodies and in November 2019, secured the Maricopa County Superior Court jury verdict for 10 of the 21 plaintiffs. Burg Simpson founder Michael S. Burg said, “The jury sent a loud and clear message to body brokers across the nation that failing to treat donated bodies with dignity and respect and selling off body parts for profit without full informed consent from the donors will not be tolerated in our society.” A lso i n 2019, Bu rg Si mpson a n nou nced a not her significant victory when they helped to secure a $143 million class action settlement for the victims of the Merrimack Valley, MA, gas explosions. An agreement was reached between Columbia Gas, its parent company
