Firm Overview

Ogborn Mihm LLP is a firm of seasoned trial lawyers based in Denver, Colorado. Founded by three former presidents of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the firm focuses on high-stakes business and professional liability litigation likely to go to trial. Ogborn Mihm is one of the few law firms in the United States that specializes in representing plaintiffs in legal malpractice lawsuits. The firm has obtained some of the largest jury verdicts and settlements in legal malpractice cases in the United States. It is rated by U.S. News and World Report and The Best Lawyers in America as a Metropolitan Tier 1 firm in the field of plaintiff legal malpractice litigation.

When undertaking a client's cause, the firm's trial teams focus on working up the case to best prepare it for trial, but always with a goal of controlling costs and resolving the case to the client's satisfaction before trial if possible. To that end, the firm includes the client in the case planning at every step of the process. The firm's goal is to quickly respond to clients' questions and concerns and address their practical business needs. On significant cases, the firm uses trial consultants, jury focus groups and other cutting-edge trial techniques and technology to prepare the case for trial. Members of the firm serve as trial consultants and conduct jury research for other law firms.

The firm's clients are mostly entrepreneurs and closely-held businesses, however, its clients range from individuals to Fortune100 companies. Most of the firm's referrals come from other lawyers, with a significant portion of those referrals coming from clients' in-house counsel or outside general counsel. The firm serves clients in state and federal courts throughout the United States, with a significant portion of its cases in the Rocky Mountain west and Midwest.

Ogborn Mihm LLP is a member of the International Society of Primerus Law Firms, a highly-selective alliance of more than 190 top-rated, independent law firms located in more than 135 cities around the world.

While the firm represents many clients on a traditional hourly fee basis, the firm also represent a significant number of its business and individual clients on a contingent fee or hybrid contingent-hourly fee basis.

Personal Injury

We believe in working closely with our injured clients and their families to give them highly personalized service, and we help them to recover as much as possible for their losses and to deal with the other non-financial consequences.

We have experience representing those individuals who have been catastrophically injured, and we take only the most significant cases because we understand the time and attention required handle these cases. These cases can involve hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars in medical care bills and lost income, in addition to the significant emotional and mental damages, permanent impairment, and disfigurement damages. Ogborn Mihm takes the time to learn about and tell each client’s story. In doing so, we ensure our clients receive the individualized attention they need and the legal representation required to recover as much as possible on their behalf.

Michael Ogborn

Ogborn Mihm, LLP

Litigation can be brutal. Too often, individuals and businesses suffer needlessly because lawyers insist on doing things "the same old way." Not with us. Not with Mike. Mike's trademark is his relentless pursuit of new and better answers. His hallmark is the recognition that better answers come only with understanding. Not just surface familiarity, but a true appreciation of your world. Mike takes the time to listen, to answer questions, and to ask questions. He doesn't just ask "where do you want to go?" He gets you there. As a young lawyer, Mike honed his courtroom presence as a deputy district attorney working for former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, then the Denver District Attorney. Now, as a civil trial lawyer, Mike focuses his practice on business litigation, personal injury and construction defect litigation. Mike brings his leadership and presence to obtain significant verdicts and settlements for his clients.
Mike is President of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. He was named a Colorado Super Lawyer® in the field of Business Litigation. Mike has tried approximately 200 cases to verdict.
