How Law Firms Can Be – and Stay- Effective During the COVID-19 Crisis
In a recent article published by the ABA Journal, Kerry Jardine, Burg Simpson’s Managing Shareholder, discusses how the firm responded to the challenges presented by the pandemic. The management team began by establishing a mobile workforce and developing a strategy to ensure efficient online collaboration while protecting client confidentiality. We invested in the kinds of technology and digital communication tools that could facilitate secure communication from any location and provided all employees the option and capability to work safely from home. Throughout the past year, what we have discovered is that it does not matter where we work. Rather, how we work, is crucial to be able to continue to do what we do best: serve the needs of our clients as they seek justice, redress, and guidance when it matters most.
Kerry Jardine is Burg Simpson’s Managing Shareholder and has been instrumental in the firm’s global strategy and direction for over 15 years.

When Medical Malpractice Results in Serious Birth Defects
Law Week Colorado recently published an article by Burg Simpson shareholder and medical malpractice attorney Angela E. McGraw. “Presenting Cases of Delayed In Diagnosis or Missed Diagnosis of Spina Bifida and Other Serious Birth Defects” examines how the State of Colorado requires experts to investigate these kinds of medical malpractice claims and provide opinions to support claims of liability, causation, and damages.
In a medical malpractice lawsuit, the injured party must bear the burden of proof. As the client, you and your legal team must prove that:
Your healthcare provider made a mistake during your care
This mistake caused or exacerbated your injury, or hampered your recovery
You suffered damages significant to justify the costs and time associated with litigation, and for which a jury can compensate you.
Burg Simpson has over four decades of experience in medical malpractice law. Our attorneys handle cases for clients who have been seriously injured as a result of treatment administered by medical professionals.
“I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate the legal representation I received from attorney Stephan Marsh and the Workers’ Compensation team that included Mary Boone and Luz Duran. I know I was just a small guppy in the vast ocean of legality that your firm represents, but everyone made me feel like a whale in those turbulent waters. Had I not contacted Burg Simpson and received such great representation, I would have surely been swallowed up by the opposition sharks.”
