John A. Purvis

Purvis Gray, LLP

John Purvis' practice is limited to civil litigation and trials.

He has been elected to the International Society of Barristers, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the American Board of Trial Advocates.

He has been listed in every edition of The Best Lawyers in America since 1989. In the current edition, he is included in the categories of personal injury litigation, product liability litigation, plaintiff's professional malpractice law, legal malpractice law, and mass tort litigation.

John is the Colorado State Chair for the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, has chaired the Committee on Conduct for the United States District Court, District of Colorado and served on the litigation Council of the Colorado Bar Association, which he has also chaired. In 1997, he received the "Award for Distinguished Achievement" from the University of Colorado Law Alumni Association.

He has taught Evidence, Advanced Trial Advocacy, and Trial Advocacy at the University of Colorado Law School. He also has taught at numerous sessions of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and many CLE programs.

He is a graduate of Denver's North High School, Harvard University and the University of Colorado School of Law. He served as Acting Colorado State Public Defender, and he chaired the Colorado Public Defender Commission for the first 10 years of its existence. Long ago, he was named "Outstanding Young Lawyer" by the Colorado Bar Association.

John and Bill Gray started the Boulder office of the Colorado State Public Defender in 1970. Thereafter, they practiced separately until 1985 when, together with Jim Buchanan and Bob Schuetze, they started what evolved into Purvis Gray, LLP. Since then, he and the firm have focused most of their efforts on representing seriously harmed plaintiffs.

Both John and Bill believe they are living proof that today's "60's" are yesterday's "40's" and "50's". As shown in the list of publications which follows, John has long had a special interest in brain injury victims and cases. He loves practicing law in the way Purvis Gray, LLP does it, and his interests outside the law include his family, travel, sports, fiction, great food, wine, and roses (really!).
