A Different Kind of Trial Lawyer
The Law Offices of Eric J. Moutz, LLC is a dedicated to providing sophisticated and aggressive representation to individuals and businesses throughout Colorado. Our focus is trial law, and we have built our reputation on more than fifteen years of litigating cases with significant financial or reputational exposure. We have handled cases of all types, including general commercial litigation, fraud and securities cases, employment litigation, contract disputes, shareholder derivative actions, and partnership disputes. Many of these cases have involved opposing counsel represented by well-known regional or national law firms and sophisticated opposing parties. Examples of cases handled by Mr. Moutz can be found here.
What sets us apart?
We realize that cases are best resolved by attorneys who are ready and able to effectively tell their client's story at trial. The process of building a solid base of evidence and a persuasive theory of the case begins before a matter is ever filed and continues through targeted discovery, intelligent motion practice, and strong trial presentation. Throughout this process, we strive to maintain a level of integrity and technical skill that builds credibility with the court, the jury, and opposing counsel.
We rely heavily on technology to organize and present your evidence in an effective and intelligent way. Typically, we strive to be ready to try any case with just a laptop and appropriate presentation software. Case files, documents, and information are organized electronically so that one attorney can master a client file and handle a matter that might be staffed by several attorneys at a larger firm. We believe that having fewer attorneys involved in a client matter allows those attorneys to be more familar with the facts and the law and to adjust to information more quickly. Faster integration of information is better preparation, and better preparation wins cases.
We know that our clients come to us for results. We begin every matter by defining the client's goals and working with them to outline a plan to achieve them. Often, this process will focus on identifying weaknesses and leverage points that can be used to force a matter to resolution. Another important part of our results oriented focus is openness to billing arrangements that align our compensation with achievement of our clients' goals. While we often represent clients on an hourly fee basis, we also utilize flat and contingent fees in appropriate cases. More information on our billing practices can be found here.
As a direct result of our exemplary approach to client service and legal practice, Eric Moutz has been repeatedly recognized for his work. Examples of such recognition include:
