K.C. Harpring and Sean Dormer obtained a plaintiff’s verdict recently in a trial in Boulder District Court against MarkGauthier of the Ross-Shannon Law firm.
DH’s client was injured in a low-speed rear-end car crash, but he also caused a second (high-speed) crash only four months later. MarkGauthier was retained by Allstate to represent the at-fault driver in the first crash. Mr. Gauthier argued that the second crash caused the majority of DH’s client’s injuries and requested a complete defense verdict.
Despite a litany of objections by Mr. Gauthier and numerous unfavorable rulings by the court, the jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff in the amount of $11,990.03. After the addition of interest and costs, the award will be approximately 15 times Allstate’s initial offer of settlement and almost double its final offer before trial.
“We believed in our client and we wanted a much bigger win,” said Sean after the verdict, “but it feels really good to have a jury find for us in the face of so many obstacles. We owe a lot to our co-workers, friends, and family for helping us so much in getting ready.”
Mr. Gauthier and the Ross-Shannon Law firm have decades of experience representing the financial interests of insurance companies and corporations, and have obtained numerous defense verdicts in similar cases.
DH and the firm’s client are considering whether to appeal the court’s objection rulings, request a new trial, and seek a more full measure of justice.
“The Trial Lawyer’s College is dedicated to training and educating lawyers and judges who are committed to the jury system and to representing and obtaining justice for individuals; the poor, the injured, the forgotten, the voiceless, the defenseless and the damned, and to protecting the rights of such people from corporate and government oppression. In all of its activities, the Trial Lawyer’s College will foster and nourish an open atmosphere of caring for people regardless of their race, age, creed, religion, national origin, physical abilities, gender or sexual orientation.”
When I got in my car and headed towards Wyoming at the beginning of September, I didn’t know much about The Trial Lawyer’s College (we call it “TLC”). I knew the mission statement. I knew that some of the best trial lawyers in America call themselves Warriors. But I didn’t know what to expect for myself. Continue reading My Promises – Sean Dormer

Attorney Sean M. Dormer Named To Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum
The Million Dollar Advocates Forum is pleased to announce that attorney Sean M Dormer of Denver, CO has been certified as a life member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Absolutely best experience ever with an attorney. He was kind, responsive, clear and truthfully helped me when I needed it most. Also he was open to liase with me even if I left the US, so most of the work was done through Skype and email, yet I always felt cared for and aware of what was happening to my case. I highly recommend him!
I have had the honor and privilege of meeting both Sean Dormer. From the very beginning and throughout my case, they have offered their undivided time, attention and dedication to helping my husband and I, and to ease the process of everything that we have had to deal with. Sean and Natalie are both full of empathy and passion, and they are highly intelligent, extremely patient and very professional. They are very thorough with all of their communications and research, and we were so comforted by the fact that they were always one step ahead and always prepared. We wholeheartedly appreciate them and all of their hard work, sincerity, and commitment to helping us.
Great Experience, Dormer helped me with my case and got me the win! Thanks you much. Strongly Recommend!
When I first met Sean I was defeated and giving up hope on the possibility that a lawyer might represent my case. However, Sean's ambition showed immediately, and his charisma was contagious. At that moment, I didn't care if we ever saw a penny, I was simply happy knowing that I had someone who believed in me and was willing to fight for me. Sean made me feel special by genuinely caring about me. Every time I spoke with him he was reassuring and he would instill hope upon me.
As time went by, he never gave up. He was consistent with his communication and he never faltered. Eventually, Sean partnered with the others at Dormer, Harping and even then, he maintained communication and kept working on my case. Slowly, Natalie and KC started to help with my case as well.
Each and every one of them amazed me with their intelligence and incredible work ethic. They are truly a unique set of individuals with the highest level of integrity, compassion, and perseverance.
In the end, they managed to get me an incredible outcome. I am forever grateful for their service and I cannot give them enough kind words. It was a blessing to have them on my side, and even more so to simply foster a relationship with them.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Mrs. Dormer is great attorney, she got my case settled for the maximum amount allowed and she did it in just a few months. She kept me in the loop explained everything about what was going with the case. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She works very hard for her clients and I would recommend her to anyone needing representation.
