About Casey Denson
Mrs. Denson graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University, and later, magna cum laude from Tulane Law School. While at Tulane Law she was a managing editor of the Tulane Law Review and was awarded the honor of membership in the Order of the Coif because she graduated in the top 3% of her class. After graduating from law school, Mrs. Denson served as a clerk for the Honorable John Conery in Franklin, Louisiana before relocating to New York City where she gained experience in the public sector working both as a public defender and a child protective services attorney.
In 2015, Mrs. Denson moved to Denver, Colorado, where she joined the prestigious firm of Killmer, Lane & Newman, LLP as an Associate Attorney, litigating a wide array of civil rights and employment discrimination matters in federal and state court. After the birth of her second child, Mrs. Denson joined the firm of Benezra & Culver, where she continued to represent employees and individuals whose civil rights had been violated, further demonstrating her commitment to these complicated areas of practice. In 2018, Mrs. Denson returned home to New Orleans, LA and established Casey Denson Law, LLC.
Mrs. Denson has represented a broad array of clients including public employees being discriminated against by schools, universities, hospitals, and the city, state and federal government. She has represented employee’s of private companies (including in manufacturing, finance, oil and gas, utilities, and health care) helping employees to recover compensation for unlawful behavior. She has represented both students and teachers, who have been retaliated against for fighting discrimination in educational institutions. Mrs. Denson is passionate about her clients and creative in her ability to achieve her client’s objective whether that is compensation or vindication by another means. She has successfully represented clients from diverse backgrounds with complicated legal situations. Some representative cases include the following:
-The family of a man in Summit County, Colorado who was left to die from alcohol withdrawal in his jail cell sued the County. That lawsuit resulted in a $3.5 million dollar settlement.
