Heather A. Salg

Heather A. Salg is a Partner in our Litigation Practice Group who has tried over 50 trials and arbitrations to verdict. She primarily defends insurance companies and their insureds, as well as large self-insurers in Federal Court and District Courts throughout Colorado. Her primary goal as an insurance defense trial attorney is to develop the relevant facts as quickly and economically as possible, provide an early and accurate assessment based on the facts and law, resolve matters as soon as they can be resolved, and zealously defend those cases if necessary, before a jury.

Ms. Salg has been a presenting speaker in Colorado and nationally regarding the defense of bad faith claims. She has presented and written about evidentiary problems associated with the reasonable value of medical expenses (“billed v paid”), Premises Liability, and best claim handling practices. She has written articles for the Colorado Lawyer and Claims Management Magazine. She has been a faculty presenter for the National Institute of Trial Advocacy and the ABOTA Masters in Trial Program. In addition to presentations, Ms. Salg is a Continuing Legal Education speaker for the Colorado Defense Lawyers Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and the National Business Institute.

In 2013 Ms. Salg was invited to be a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), an organization with a primary mission of preserving the constitutional vision of equal justice for all Americans and our civil justice system. ABOTA is an invitation-only organization consisting of lawyers who have tried a minimum of 20 civil jury trials to conclusion.

Ms. Salg has been AV-Rated by Martindale-Hubbell since 2009. She was named as a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2012 and has been named a Super Lawyer annually since 2014. In 2016 and 2017 she was recognized as a Top Lawyer by 5280 Magazine, and in 2017 she was named to Super Lawyers’ list of Top 50 Women attorneys in Colorado.

As a volunteer with the Colorado Defense Lawyer’s Association, Ms. Salg participates on amicus issues, legislative issues, and has helped to organize professionalism events that are co-sponsored by the Colorado Defense Lawyer’s Association and the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association. In addition she volunteers for the White Center as a speaker on Constitution Law Day annually, and as a Moot Court Judge for the Colorado Bar Association and Denver University Law School.
