I focus my practice around what my clients are seeking. We work together to identify those goals, and I work to advise the best way of achieving them. Navigating the legal system can appear daunting and complex. I work to make that process both manageable and aligned with what each client is seeking.
Robinson & Henry Partner David Hannum is an experienced litigator who focuses his law practice on civil litigation, insurance claim denials, intellectual property, and real estate.
David swiftly brought a number of real estate disputes to settlement or trial within the first few months of joining the firm as a trial attorney in 2018. Today, he leads the civil litigation team in the Colorado Springs office.
Intellectual Property Practice
David’s experience working in intellectual property law runs the gamut. He has sued major motion picture studios over life story copyright issues in federal court, and he has handled trademark application filings and processing with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
As Robinson & Henry expands its Intellectual Property Practice, David aims to help start-up business owners obtain federal trademark protection, as well as bring trademark infringement actions in state and federal court.
Insurance Claim Denial Practice
David also fights on behalf of clients whose insurance companies have wrongfully denied or delayed their claims. He takes powerful insurance corporations to state and federal court to recover the money that is rightfully owed to his clients. Currently, David has active cases seeking millions of dollars in unpaid and delayed claims.
Clients Get an Experienced Litigator
David has practiced law for 15 years; much of that time has been spent litigating cases in state and federal courts. The areas of law in which he works call for an experienced litigator and methodical planner.
“I always want a strategy in place,” David says. “The strategy may change as new information comes in, but there is always a goal and a plan to get there.”
For instance, when he creates a trademark protection plan for his clients, David considers how opposing counsel may try to poke holes in the plan should it ever get challenged. As a seasoned litigator, David can anticipate the legal maneuvers an opposing attorney might take against his client.
David also leverages his litigation expertise to obtain greater offers for his insurance claim denial clients.
About David Hannum
A native of Bridgetown, New Jersey, David lived and worked on the East Coast for many years before making Colorado his home. In addition to his civil litigation practice, David served as a staff attorney for a non-profit organization where his focus was child custody, domestic violence, consumer advocacy, bankruptcy, and foreclosure.
David and his wife relocated to Colorado Springs in 2014 to be closer to family and to enjoy the beauty and quality of life for which Colorado is known. He and his wife have two sons. In his free time, David enjoys golfing, fishing, and hiking.
“[David] listened carefully to the details [of my case]…[He] told me what my best options were and when it’s financially viable to contact them again. I contacted them about construction issues with my contractor at my home. Thank you very much, David, it was the best conversation I’ve had with an attorney.” —Ahmed
