The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association is the largest specialty bar association in Colorado. With more than 1,300 members across the state practicing a broad spectrum of civil law, we are united by the shared vision that everyone deserves justice and that no one is above the law.
Since 1953, CTLA has worked to ensure that our members have the best resources and strategies to advocate for their clients from the courtroom to the Capitol.
For decades, big insurance, negligent corporations and government agencies have sought to rig our civil justice system to help big corporations and insurance companies avoid responsibility. CTLA members work tirelessly to ensure that wrongdoers are held accountable and injured Coloradans have access to a fair civil justice system.
Each year, through the Case of the Year Award, CTLA acknowledges the positive impact that a single case can have on correcting injustices, advancing fairness under the law, changing attitudes, or providing economic incentives to protect public safety. This year, the award-winning case involved a mother and daughter who developed toxic brain injuries from living above an illegal meth lab. Their apartment complex negligently dismissed their complaints for years.
