Senior Counsel
Denver

Overview

As a member of the Healthcare, Life Sciences & Education industry team, Stacey defends physicians, hospitals, and other healthcare entities in litigation involving a wide variety of claims, including discrimination and related employment claims, professional negligence, False Claims Act, and other business torts, as well as in administrative actions before state agencies. She effectively advises hospital administrators and medical staff leaders during peer review processes and hearings, and successfully obtained summary judgment dismissal of a "sham peer review" lawsuit based on immunity afforded under the Healthcare Quality Improvement Act. She also defends corporations, officers, and directors in complex commercial litigation in state and federal courts, involving a wide variety of claims, including insurance coverage, product liability, labor and employment, and business torts.

Clients depend on Stacey for her common sense litigation strategy. She considers all possible arguments, drilling into the details and calculating which approach will best serve her clients. Reputations in the legal realm are crucial, and Stacey works diligently to maintain positive relationships with judges and other state and federal agencies.

Stacey applies her foreign language skills (French, Spanish, and Russian) to various pro bono immigration matters. She won a political asylum trial in immigration court and has helped several abandoned or abused Central American children obtain legal status. She also does significant work with the firm’s Human Trafficking Clinic. This sense of duty and benevolence is displayed in Stacey’s extensive civic involvement. She volunteers with Christ in the City, a non-profit that connects with the Denver homeless population, and Escuela de Guadalupe, a nationally-recognized urban school offering quality, Catholic, dual-language education to an ethnically and economically diverse community of learners.
