The attorneys at Burg Simpson recognize how important it is to stay involved in the legal community outside of the courtroom. That’s why shareholder David P. Hersh has agreed to serve on the Colorado Supreme Court’s new Lawyer Well-Being Task Force. The task force, chaired by Associate Justice Monica Márquez, is made up of lawyers from private practice, university personnel, judges, and members of area bar associations.

Officials proposed the task force in response to a study, “The Path to Lawyer Well-Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change,” which was published by the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-Being and found that “too many lawyers and law students experience chronic stress and high rates of depression and substance use.”

David P. Hersh’s practice is focused on complex commercial matters involving contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, ownership disputes, construction matters, “bet your company” litigation, and professional negligence. Admitted to practice before the United States, Colorado, and Wyoming Supreme Courts, as well as numerous federal courts, David’s has tried more than 145 civil jury trials to verdict throughout the United States.

A skilled and experienced trial lawyer, David excels in the courtroom, handling all aspects of litigation through his creative problem solving, persuasive communication, and outstanding analytical skills. He believes that the benchmark of his success comes from his passion for the law and steadfast mission to be the best advocate possible for his clients.
