Ethan A. McQuinn is a founding partner of Anderson, Hemmat & McQuinn LLC. Mr. McQuinn works both in the areas of personal injury as well as workers' compensation, with a special focus on personal injury litigation. As part of the litigation team, Mr. McQuinn oversees all major motions litigation practice. Throughout the course of a lawsuit, many legal issues are determined long before the attorney actually goes to trial. These issues are determined by written motions asking for a determination of law by the judge and affect the likelihood of a successful outcome at trial. Mr. McQuinn directs all aspects of these pre-trial written arguments. A quality motions litigation department ensures that that when the trial attorney enters the courtroom on the first day of trial, he is already positioned to win.
In addition, Mr. McQuinn directs all aspects of appellate practice at Anderson, Hemmat, & McQuinn LLC. He has been lead appellate counsel in some of the most ground-breaking cases in Colorado, including the radical transformation of Colorado wrongful death law, securities law and workers compensation claims. Even after a seasoned trial attorney wins a verdict in a case, the verdict is often appealed to a higher court by the opposing party. A strong appellate practice is integral to ensuring that a successful verdict at trial is not lost on appeal.
Mr. McQuinn graduated from Cedarville University in Ohio with a Bachelor's Degree and later earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Colorado Law School. As part of the litigation team, Mr. McQuinn played an integral role in trial preparations, and served as firm spokesman for several local television news interviews regarding the nationally reported case of Gonzales vs. Mascarenas, the action brought on behalf of a premature child born after a forced delivery due to a tragic automobile accident that resulted in a placental abruption and the untimely birth of the baby, whose gestational age was between 20 and 22 weeks. Mr. McQuinn served as co-trial counsel in that case as well as other significant personal injury cases in Colorado. Additionally, Mr. McQuinn participated in the only Colorado class action brought against Citigroup, Merrill Lynch, and Morgan Stanley for their role in the financial scandal that rocked the financial world in the early 2000's.
Mr. McQuinn was nominated as a “Rising Star” in the 2012 publication of Colorado’s Super Lawyers Magazine. Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Mr. McQuinn is also a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.
