About Laurie:

Laurie focuses her practice on civil and commercial litigation. Before entering private practice, Laurie served as judicial clerk to the Hon. Carlos Lucero of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit – where she gained valuable research and writing experience as well as exposure to diverse areas of civil and criminal law.

Recently, Laurie served as Special Counsel for the State Public Defenders Office and in that capacity represented a Defendant in the Denver County Court.

Laurie graduated first in her class from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she was a Chancellor’s Scholar. She was also an articles editor for the Denver University Law Review, winner of a wide range of scholastic excellence awards and competitions, and a student attorney in the school’s civil litigation clinic.

Laurie earned her undergraduate degree with highest honors in American Studies (with a minor in History) from Northwestern University. In addition, she was a Fulbright Scholar in Cape Town, South Africa, and co-founded an undergraduate lecture series on race, poverty and inequality.

Between college and law school, Laurie was a housing counselor for Colorado Coalition for the Homeless and a legislative aide to Colorado Sen. Suzanne Williams. She is a Colorado native.

Laurie is on the trial team for the following cases:

  • When Lincoln Memorial Life Insurance Company, Memorial Service Life Insurance Company, and National Prearranged Services, Inc. went into liquidation, life and health insurance guaranty associations from 44 states stepped in to pay death benefits under insurance policies issued by the failed companies. These life insurance policies purportedly backed the prepaid funeral contracts sold through National Prearranged Services. Reilly Pozner represents the National Organization of Life and Health Insurance Guaranty Associations, various state life and health insurance guaranty associations, and a Texas Special Deputy Receiver in a multi-state effort to recover more than $600 million in losses from various individuals and entities that allegedly perpetrated a variety of frauds associated with the failed companies.
  • A prominent Colorado automobile dealership faces a purported class action claiming that the new cars on its lots were detailed in a way that violates the Colorado Consumer Protection Act and hired Reilly Pozner to defend its interests.

“I am thankful to work at a firm with so many talented and wonderful attorneys.  Each one is trial-focused, dynamic, and incredibly bright.”
