I had a great experience at the Dan Caplis Law Firm. My attorney was Ethan McQuinn, so happy that he is on the Caplis team. Ethan was very professional and was able to get my challenging case settled to my delight before a costly trial. I can't say enough about the entire team at this firm. Everyone I met was really on their game and wanted to please me. Hat's off to you Dan for your high standards!!

  • On April 13th, 2018 I was struck hit by a car as a pedestrian while crossing Co Blvd, which resulted a fractured sacrum, pelvis and extensive shoulder injuries. After my hospital stay, my wife and I decided that we needed fair and honest representation, from hearing insurance horror stories from friends and family. Based on hearing commercial's on my favorite radio station, we decided to give Dan a call. He was very informative, transparent, and got to work straight away on our case. My auto insurance was very slow to pay out the medical coverage I pay for, short term disability wanted to be repaid for covering my wages, and my health insurance expected payment for the various hospital stays, even though I was the victim and not at fault for the accident. Eric was the main attorney working my case, and he was able to protect the full settlement from these insurance companies. I'll always have pelvic and shoulder pain to live with, I'm very glad I went with this law firm to represent me and my families interest. Thank you!

  • I chose the Caplis Law Firm, after I was hit by a distracted driver. I was unable to return to work for months after the accident. The surgery, and the long recovery, essentially handicapped me, and every aspect of my life.
    Dan Caplis was very detail-oriented and guided me through this difficult process. Since this was such difficult time of my life, I really appreciate being able to focus on rehab, therapy, and the long process of returning to work.
    I highly recommend Dan Caplis and all of his team. They were wonderful!

  • I was involved in a near fatal car accident in 2016, when I was leaving my high school for college orientation.
    I was hospitalized for two months, and had to relearn how to walk and talk & everything in between.
    My mom reached out to the Dan Caplis Law firm to get someone reliable on our case, and boy did they help!
    My attorney, Ethan Quinn, is a kind-hearted and focused man dedicated to delivering justice to those under his protection who have been wronged.
    Shay Newell, the paralegal for my case, held my hand every step of the way. Whenever I had a question, she was more than happy to help.
    The defendant made things difficult for my case, but Dan Caplis and his law firm persisted, and inexorably was able to bring about a just finality.
    Thank you Dan Caplis!
    God Bless you all.

  • The Caplis Law Firm and Ethan McQuinn handled my case with care and professionalism which supports their reputation as one of the best firms around. Upfront honesty about expectations and moral behavior exhibited by Ethan McQuinn put me at ease during this process.

  • My interaction with the Caplis Law firm, including personally with Dan Caplis, has been wonderful. I've experienced Dan to be incredibly wise, smart, and very compassionate. In my life I've met many lawyers and most, if not all, are horrible at explaining things and don't make attempts to walk in the shoes of clients. Dan is a great choice, if not the only choice if you have a serious case.

    Glenn Davis
  • After getting hit by a drunk driver, I was referred to Ethan at Dan Caplis Law as an attorney that would personally help me through this process. Ethan and his paralegal, Linda, were very helpful. They were professional and cared about me and my recovery as well as helping me with my case. They were always available to answer any questions I had and delivered excellent results!

  • My husband was severely hurt in a work place accident after 18 day hospital stay Dan Caplis personally came to our home to discuss taking his case. He and his law firm fought for over 3 years to settle his case. During that time he was declared 100% disabled never to work again. During those 3 years plus we never had a problem getting ahold of him or one of the other 3 lawyers that were assigned to his case. They were always available for any questions or concerns and went out of their way to accommodate us at every turn. I would recommend Caplis Law over all others to be my lawyer they settled this difficult case and we are now living a happy financially stable life thanks to him. If you need help from an honest lawyer who has the utmost integrity and intelligence Dan Caplis Law is the only place to go.

  • I worked with Dan for over a year and a half, preparing to bring a case to trial. There are SO MANY things I liked about his approach. Here is one.
    From day one, Dan never told me "It's a slam dunk" or "it's in the bag". He always told me it was two things- preparation, and the jury. And only one of those we can control. His preparation was obvious, and he blew away the defense! If you have a need, don't even think about looking elsewhere!

  • Amy Ferrin knows her stuff! She's sharp, thorough, and cut through the clutter eliminating any confusion I had about how to proceed. I was injured in a car accident and reached out for a consultation. Amy patiently listened, answered all my questions, and concisely talked me through every step of the process. I felt so much better about how to approach things after. I highly recommend Amy to anyone and if I ever need them again - the Dan Caplis law firm will be the first people I call. Thank you for everything!

    Kimberly
  • After the accident I had a lot of worries, and Dan was recommended to me because senior citizens are one of his top priorities. Talking to Linda on the phone kept me motivated to keep fighting for my case. Eventually I started working with Ethan McQuinn who fought very hard for my case, and over time we became good friends. He is very smart, and fully dedicates himself to his work. He got me the best deal I possibly could have gotten. Shay is so wonderful to talk to, and she worked so hard for my case, she has the biggest heart, and she knows how to connect with people and how to make them laugh and smile. I am so grateful that I found this firm.

  • Ethan McQuinn was very professional and personal and walked us through the entire lawsuit. We are extremely pleased with our final settlement. I highly recommend Dan Caplis Law Firm for any legal concerns.

  • Dan & his crew helped me get some much-needed money from the insurance companies after my accident 4 yrs ago! I didn’t hold out much hope considering the person who hit us was uninsured but not only did they get the maximum from his insurance company but got more from mine! They didn’t give up til they were able to get as much as possible! The staff there is amazing & beyond helpful & never made you feel silly no matter how “silly” the questions could appear! If I ever need them in the future - hopefully I won’t - but I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again & I highly recommend them! What a blessing!!

  • I was rear ended on my motorcycle while stopped for traffic on I-25 by a distracted driver. We were told by several doctors that I shouldn't have survived the accident.The day after the accident my wife called Dan Caplis law. We were pleasantly surprised when Dan Caplis himself walked into my hospital room. We told him what we knew at the time and he agreed to help us. We were treated extremely well and are impressed at how thorough & helpful everyone at his firm is.
    Dan Caplis and his people are not kind to people because it's their job, they're kind & helpful because in their hearts they really care about other people. Since our case has a non-disclosure I can say "We came out with a satisfactory resolution to our case".
    We are very pleased with the way we were treated and would highly recommend Dan Caplis & his people because of their knowledge of the law, their talent and caring for the people who come to them for help.

  • I was in a bad car accident in 2017, and hired Dan Caplis' legal firm to help me navigate through a very trying time in my life. Ethan worked with me as my personal attorney that communicated every aspect of my case and I was financially taken care of even better than I anticipated. Dan Caplis Law Firm will help you and guide you each step through your legal procedures. I highly recommend bringing a champion into your case to help you with serious legal matters. Dan Caplis Law Firm is that champion. Thanks for all your help.

    Former Client, Denver, CO
  • I had a personal injury case that never made it to trial, but was settled and I was very happy. Babar Waheed gave my case a real shot and came to bat for me when it mattered most. I didn't feel like he was ever too busy for me like I had with attorney's I dealt with in the past.

I will highly recommend Babar Waheed to anyone who needs a Compassionate, patient and kind lawyer who will fight for them until the end.

  • I am posting my first review ever - near the anniversary of the heartbreaking incident that brought us to a malpractice case. We chose Dan Caplis to represent us in our medical malpractice litigation. The event itself was tragic, but the legal posturing from the offenders that followed was malicious and beleaguering. We sought an attorney who was sharp, knowledgeable, and ready to meet the ferocity toe-to-toe - but also a person with personal ethics. We found that person in Dan Caplis. We appreciated the way that Mr. Caplis had his team catalogued the details of the case and nuances of the law – good legal practice. But more than that, Mr. Caplis understood our devastation and indignation and was not afraid to challenge the opposing team with cutting edge social media sequelae if they should refuse to ignore their obligations. As we prepared for an emotional trial full of unknowns, Mr. Caplis and his team organized hundreds of details into a brick solid case with integrity and without compromise that put us in a position to ultimately win a multi-million-dollar settlement. His compassion was real, his advice was sound (sadly - no – the legal system does not deliver justice), and his legal preparations were rigorous and well prepared. There is a network of victims and we have come to know other families that have walked a path similar to ours. None of the group feel that they were represented at the caliber that we were. We are thankful that there are skilled, challenging, and ethical attorneys out there that will fight for a just cause. We hope that you are never in a situation where you are in need of a medical malpractice attorney. But if you are, we can attest to the value of Mr. Dan Caplis.

  • Mr. Caplis took the time to listen to my situation, ask clarifying questions, and offer potential solutions/courses of action. I felt that he offered a fair and honest legal opinion regarding my situation.

    Rachel Knost
  • In 2006 I was involved in a very serious car accident. My first call was to Dan Caplis, who is a longtime friend. I'm so glad that Dan handled everything for me from the accident forward. It is amazing how the insurance companies will try to twist the facts, and aggressively attack you. Within months, the insurance company was treating me as though I was the one who caused this accident. They attacked my career, all my past medical history, and even me as a person. If it had not been for the expertise and guidance from Dan Caplis and his associates I might have given up on my case. He continued to make sure that I met all the appropriate timelines and set up medical experts needed to support my case. In the end, I ended up getting the maximum payout from the insurance company which felt great after what they had put me through. If you are ever in the unfortunate situation of a bad accident, I would recommend you call Dan Caplis and his associates before anyone else.

    Tom Rouen
  • Dan Caplis is most effective personal injury advocate I have ever had the opportunity to witness. His creativity, advocacy skills, and reputation built on 34 years of litigation combine to make Dan an unstoppable force when pursuing a righteous personal injury case. Dan does everything in his power to help the courageous fight back. Simply, if a loved one or I ever need representation in a personal injury matter, I want Dan as the lawyer.

    Babar Waheed
  • I highly endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Dan for 6 months now and knew of him before that. He is passionate about the practice of law and his clients. Also, he is extremely detail oriented.

    Michael Mcnally
  • We worked with Dan in a very complex personal injury case involving our youngest daughter. He was professional during all aspects of a 2-year relationship, he helped us assemble a solid case with a strong legal team and he offered us genuine personal support and concern throughout. We think very highly of Dan and can quickly endorse his services to anyone facing the confusing and bewildering challenges that result from wrongful personal injury.

    Past Client
  • I called Dan to see if he was the right person for me, and he was very honest and recommended the correct type of firm for my legal needs. I appreciate that he took the time to talk to me and educate me about my potential case.

  • We were involved in a devastating automobile accident in March of 2008 that was not our fault. We contacted Dan Caplis for help. Dan was with us every step of the way. We were never passed off to a paralegal or another attorney. Dan pulled together a team of fantastic attorneys who assisted with our case. After almost a five-year battle, Dan and his team defeated two insurance companies culminating in the maximum settlement allowed by law from both companies. In addition to being a very skilled attorney, Dan is dedicated, compassionate, and caring. Thank you Dan,

  • Dan Caplis is simply the best lawyer in Colorado. There's not much more to say than that. However, I don't think a testimonial can be only one sentence! When I was first in my accident I was terrified, worried, confused... I had no idea which way was up or down, nor which way to go. Then I called Dan's office because my mom listened to him on the radio. To my surprise, when I asked for Dan Caplis to be my personal lawyer, I was granted none other than Dan himself. I wasn't treated like just another case to him. I was treated like myself. I had a personal connection with my lawyer. I don't think many personal injury victims can say that. In fact, from personal experience, I know that people who have chosen other "popular" lawyers have had terrible experiences. I would never want to get into my accident again, but if it meant having the exact same experience with Dan and his staff, I'd do it. He made me feel like I could win. He gave me the confidence I needed to fight, and win against, the insurance company. In the beginning, they only offered me $17,000. To a single mom of two, that was life changing! Then I thought about it more and thought about how hurt, how scarred I was from my accident. My physical and my emotional wounds were worth so much more than $17,000. So I called Dan and asked him what to do. He told me something I'll never let go of, "Do what's in your heart, what you feel is the right thing." I apply this to my every day life now. In fact, it was the inspiration for one of my tattoos! The tattoos that Dan may not have been a fan of, but it never affected the way he treated me or thought of me as a person! 🙂 After thinking long and hard about turning down that much money, I decided the right thing to do was to fight. I wasn't going to let that drunk driver get away with throwing, what to an insurance company is, a small chunk of change at me and telling me to go away. "I fight... I survive..." is what my tattoo reads... and fight is what I would do. With Dan Caplis standing strong at my side. See, he didn't make this decision for me, he just gave me the confidence and the knowledge to make the right decision. When it all ended, there was a long, hard, sad, difficult trial... but it was all worth it. The happy ending that Dan Caplis got me? Over half of one million dollars! I owe my life today to him and his team. Thank you again Dan. I love you and consider you to be one of the most influential men I've ever been lucky enough to have in my life.

  • Through no fault of our own my wife and I were in an automobile accident that resulted in life threatening injuries to both of us. At that point I called Dan Caplis. We were given Dan's personal cell phone and told to call anytime of the day or night. Dan truly cared about us, which gave us the confidence and strength to fight. We won.

    In our opinion there is not a finer attorney, or person anywhere than Dan Caplis. He is confident, intelligent and compassionate and one of the hardest working people I've ever known. We are now lucky to call him our friend.
