She has litigated and tried numerous cases including catastrophic personal injury, general liability, and contract disputes.

With a background in catastrophic injury litigation in Nevada, and a primary focus on the medical aspects of an individual’s claims, Ms. Atwood made a natural transition to her practice in Denver which largely focusses on representation of physicians, nurses, and other health care professionals, as well as hospitals and other health care entities.

Ms. Atwood’s goal in servicing these clients is to bring a common sense approach to a wide variety of difficult problems. She routinely advises as corporate/general counsel to her clients and provides legal advice and guidance to obtain favorable outcomes.

Consistently seeking to identify areas of potential or existing issues, Ms. Atwood strives to provide actionable recommendations on process improvement to avoid liability according to legal options.

Originally from Dallas, Texas, Ms. Atwood is an avid Oklahoma Sooners Fan and actively follows college football.   She also enjoys cooking, exploring new breweries and wineries, and spending time with her English Bulldog Bella.
