Medical and Long-Term Care Malpractice
Mr. Jones has extensive experience in providing legal representation on behalf of healthcare providers. He routinely defends physicians, assisted living facilities, skilled nursing facilities, and rehabilitation facilities, hospitals, and other health care providers against a wide breadth of claims, including negligence and malpractice, violations of the Colorado Consumer Protection Act, violation of the New Mexico Unfair Trade Practices Act, wrongful death, and other common law claims.
As former staff trial counsel for a Fortune 100 insurance company, Mr. Jones has considerable experience representing his clients in personal injury claims, including automobile accidents and premises liability suits. He has tried more than a dozen personal injury cases.
In addition to his health care tort litigation practice, Mr. Jones advises both large and small businesses regarding their employer-employee relationships.

He has also assisted clients in developing employee procedures and guidelines so that they can proactively prevent costly litigation. Mr. Jones has experience investigating discrimination claims, workplace misconduct, and retaliation and drafting position statements and other responses to requests by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and its state equivalents.
As a result of his previous role as a law clerk to the Honorable Diana Terry on the Colorado Court of Appeals, Mr. Jones also possesses unique insight into the appellate process. He is able to guide his clients not only through initial litigation, but also through the appellate options available following trial.
