Background

Dan Mauk does a lot of things well. In col­lege at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Ver­mont, he majored in polit­i­cal sci­ence and minored in math. When he moved to Jack­son, Wyoming a few years lat­er, he didn’t just live the ski bum life, he also became a ski instruc­tor. He even­tu­al­ly packed up his ski boots and moved to Col­orado to attend law school at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Den­ver.

Today, Dan has a diverse prac­tice that includes employ­ment law, health care law, and med­ical mal­prac­tice defense. He has inves­ti­gat­ed a large num­ber of com­plaints about dis­crim­i­na­tion, harass­ment, retal­i­a­tion, unem­ploy­ment and wage issues, and rep­re­sent­ed and advised the busi­ness­es, prac­tices and indi­vid­u­als who were fac­ing them.

He has also suc­cess­ful­ly rep­re­sent­ed physi­cians, nurs­es, and med­ical prac­tices in cas­es involv­ing neg­li­gence, wrong­ful death, vic­ar­i­ous lia­bil­i­ty, and con­sti­tu­tion­al claims. He reg­u­lar­ly rep­re­sents physi­cians and nurs­es in admin­is­tra­tive pro­ceed­ings in front of the Col­orado Med­ical Board and Col­orado Board of Nurs­ing.

Since these cas­es can often be emo­tion­al, Dan’s exper­tise is a calm­ing pres­ence, help­ing his clients with the legal issues involved so that they can make informed deci­sions. “I try to help peo­ple see both sides of the issues, and to take emo­tion out of it,” he explains.

In addi­tion to his work as a tri­al lawyer in both state and fed­er­al court, Dan has coun­seled busi­ness­es so that they can imple­ment work­place solu­tions that will improve their employ­ment prac­tices and help avoid legal risk. He reg­u­lar­ly drafts employ­ment, inde­pen­dent con­trac­tor, and part­ner­ship agree­ments for med­ical pro­fes­sion­als and their staffs, as well as employ­ee hand­books, non­com­petes, and relat­ed poli­cies. He rou­tine­ly assists when it comes to the enforce­ment of these con­tracts and poli­cies and pro­vid­ed guid­ance on any num­ber of oth­er issues that can arise in an employ­ment rela­tion­ship.

A native of Long Island, New York, Dan fell in love with the west when he took vaca­tions with his fam­i­ly to places like Yel­low­stone Nation­al Park, Grand Teton Nation­al Park, and Moab. In Col­orado, he spends his time with his wife and young daugh­ter, and plays both indoor and out­door soc­cer. And although he loves the west, Dan is still faith­ful to his home­town sports teams, the New York Giants, the New York Mets, and the New York Islanders.
