Lynn Diamond Feiger leads the Employment Law Practice Group for Lohf Shaiman Jacobs Hyman & Feiger PC.

In June 2012, Ms. Feiger received the Mary Lathrop award from the Colorado Women's Bar Association for lifetime achievement in the legal profession.  In 2006, she settled a large class action against the Denver Mint on behalf of its female employees, obtaining $9 million in damages and significant affirmative relief.  More recently, she represented the named charging parties against Outback Steakhouse in a settlement obtaining $19 million in relief for class members.  She has obtained judgements and/or settled cases against many of the largest employers in Colorado. 

Ms. Feiger has been practicing employment law for more than three decades. She tried (and won) the first sexual harassment case in the country and has been successful in obtaining many landmark decisions in Colorado on such issues as the enforcement of handbooks and the right of employees to oppose illegal actions by their employers. She currently specializes in multi-plaintiff and complex employment cases. In 2015 she was successful in obtaining a nearly $15,000,000 verdict in Federal court against Matheson Trucking, Inc.  In addition to her litigation background, Ms. Feiger has a special expertise in employment counseling and settlement negotiations. In this regard, she has a special informational website for employees: www.ColoradoEmployeeRights.com.

Many of the plaintiff employment lawyers in Colorado have been trained by Ms. Feiger.  She has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America for several decades and has also been designated one of the top plaintiff's trial lawyers in Colorado.  She also is a fellow of the American Bar Association's College of Employment Lawyers and is one of the founding members and former President and Board Chairperson of the Plaintiff's Employment Lawyers Association.

Ms. Feiger attended Brandeis University and the University of California at Los Angeles as a undergraduate, and graduated from the University of Southern California Law School in 1971.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
