“I had the good fortune of receiving a referral to Marathon Law. Even if I had not received such a favorable outcome to my automobile accident case, I would have been satisfied with the legal services Marathon Law provided. Unlike at larger law firms, I received direct, prompt and personal attention from both Jeff and Malissa. Both attorneys were responsive to my emails and communicated in an easy-to-understand, non-legalese manner. Jeff and Malissa are extremely professional, but approachable. Their careful guidance and client-centered approach facilitated my participation in the process and instilled my confidence and trust in their counsel. The daunting and confusing task of finding personal, compassionate and competent legal services was simplified with my choice of Marathon Law. Thank you both!”

Reasons to Choose Marathon Law

1

The Personal Touch

Unlike other firms, when you call for a free consultation, you’ll speak directly with Jeff or Malissa, both experienced injury attorneys. We take the time to carefully review your case before offering any recommendations and we continue to work directly with you until we cross the finish line.

2

Compassion

Our firm is dedicated to helping real people with real problems find real solutions. Our law firm lives by one simple rule: Clients First Always! Tired of attorneys who won’t return your calls? Sick of lawyers just telling you what you want to hear? Looking for someone who tells the truth and makes time for every client? Then we’re the right firm for you.

3

Experience

One of the most important questions to ask when hiring an injury lawyer is whether he/she has the trial experience to take your case all the way if they have to. Anybody can haggle with the insurance companies, accept a lowball offer, and move on to the next case. But how many lawyers will put on the gloves and jump in the ring to get their clients the justice they deserve?

Jeff was a former deputy trial attorney for the Colorado State Public Defender for nearly 5 years where he went to trial more times than he can remember. And Malissa honed her skills for 6 years in the corporate sector and another 3 years at the Attorney General’s office before she joined Marathon Law in 2017. Between the two, you get the brain and the brawn.

Can your injury lawyer say the same?

Super Duo

If we accept your case, you get two experienced attorneys on your case – not just one. As a husband-and-wife super duo, Jeff’s extensive trial experience and Malissa’s complex civil litigation background ​combine to form a serious threat against any insurance company who’s not playing fair. ​Jeff and Malissa are heavily involved in your case from start to finish and not a single decision is made about your case without ​both attorneys’ input and direction.

We’ve each been practicing law for over a decade and for a combined period of almost 25 years. We guarantee you that we will work harder and smarter than anyone out there until you get the results you deserve.

How injury claims work in Colorado

  • Always Report the Accident - Even if the damage is minor and you believe the other person is at fault, always make sure a report is filed. Without filing a report, you run the risk that the other driver is going to blame you later once the smoke has cleared and he's looking at higher premiums.
  • Contact Your Insurance Company – Failing to do so in a timely manner may ​hurt your case in the future. Your insurance company ​CANNOT raise your rates if the accident was not your fault.
  • Speak with an Attorney – The sooner you get an attorney involved the better. I know what you're thinking: "Of course the attorneys say I need an attorney!" ​We get it, but auto injury cases can get complicated fast and you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the fog.
  • Seek Medical Attention – If you're seriously hurt at the time of the accident, go to the E.R. Don't worry about the costs. It's your health that matters. Serious injuries don’t always appear right away. It can be days later before you actually experience any pain. If that's the case, we recommend scheduling an appointment with your physician as soon as possible. If you need treatment and don't get it right away, the insurance company is going to use it against you later and try to lowball your settlement offer.

Once you have your bases covered, it’s time to work with an attorney to see what’s next. When you’re a car accident victim, you basically have two choices:

  • Settlement - In most cases, victims settle out of court with the at-fault party’s insurance company. Our job is to make sure we earn our fee by ensuring that your settlement is as high as possible and that we're not leaving any money on the table.
  • Trial - As a victim, the only leverage you have is the threat of trial if the insurance company won't pay upfront. That's why it's important that the attorney you hire is a trial attorney. This is what separates Marathon Law from the rest of the pack. As a former trial deputy for the Colorado State Public Defender, attorney Jeffry Dougan knows his way around a courtroom.

No matter which path you choose, Jeff and Malissa will fight tirelessly to get you the justice you deserve. Call Marathon Law at 303-704-1222 TODAY! We are now conducting FREE virtual legal consultations.
