Stu Pack is an experienced complex civil litigator. He has extensive litigation experience in state and federal district courts in a broad range of areas including commercial, real estate, municipal, business, professional negligence, insurance, product liability, probate and trust, personal injury, and tort litigation.

Bringing a visual and performing arts background to his practice of law, coupled with mastery of the spoken word and persuasive arguments, he holds the attention of juries and becomes the guide who leads them through the complexity of a case. In this manner, Stu helps everyone understand and believe in his clients’ cases, which in turns helps him win the confidence of judges and juries, and helps him win cases.

With a passion for justice and equality, Stu is also an advocate for First Amendment rights, including women’s reproductive rights at health clinics. When appropriate, he has taken cases for those who have been wronged and need legal assistance but are unable to afford an attorney.

He lives in Denver with Robin, his wife of 39 years. Robin is an accountant specializing in election campaign finance reporting and long term care insurance. They have two adult daughters. Stu’s interests include: theater: acting and singing, photography, movies, travel and golf.
