Marlo Greer is an accomplished trial lawyer who centers her practice in the area of serious personal injury. Her practice focuses on motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, hospital negligence, and nursing home negligence. She provides aggressive and compassionate representation to individuals and families who have suffered injuries due to the negligence of others.
Ms. Greer devotes herself to representing victims of serious accidents throughout the State of Colorado, including motor vehicle and trucking collisions, bicycle accidents, motorcycle collisions, and injuries that occur on negligently maintained property. She has been involved in numerous medical cases, including surgical malpractice, orthopedic injuries, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, gastrointestinal injuries, birth injuries, patient death, nursing errors, and mismanaged infections. Ms. Greerâ€™s representation of her clients has resulted in settlements and verdicts ranging from five figure cases to multi-million dollar cases.
While in Law School, Ms. Greer suffered a spinal fracture after being thrown from a horse. This experience gave her first-hand experience regarding inappropriate medical care and dealing with insurance companies that fail to put injured people first. Due to these experiences, Ms. Greer dedicates her practice to ensuring that her clients receive personal representation in a manner that she would want to be treated as a victim of negligent conduct. For her, every case deserves personal and professional attention.
Ms. Greer has lived in Colorado most of her life, graduating from the University of Colorado at Denver in 1997 and receiving the Deanâ€™s scholarship for academic achievement. She received her J.D. from the University of Denver College of Law in 2001, earning the distinction of Student of the Year in the Student Law Office. During college and Law School, Ms. Greer focused on her trial skills by participating in mock trial competitions and by acting as a student lawyer for individuals accused of crimes who could not afford representation. After graduating Law School, she focused on her trial practice in the area of criminal defense and personal injury at a small firm whose goal was to ensure the rights of individuals accused of crimes and the rights of victims of automobile collisions were protected. Before becoming a founding member of Greer & Van Donselaar, Ms. Greer continued her work as an advocate for the injured with midsized plaintiffâ€™s firms representing medical malpractice victims and people who suffered traumatic brain injuries, spine injuries and orthopedic injuries. Ms. Greer also worked with a defense firm representing medical professionals. Her experience as a defense lawyer gives her valuable insight into insurance company tactics, which helps her serve her clients as a plaintiffâ€™s attorney.
Ms. Greer lives in Denver and is committed to her community and family. She is the garden leader for the Stapleton Greenway Garden, which is a Denver Urban Gardens (DUG) community garden. The Greenway Garden provides residents with the opportunity for a sustainable food source for gardeners of all ages, experience, and income levels. She is also on the Board of Social Work Examiners, which reviews complaints related to alleged violations of the Practice Act for Social Workers and volunteered her time on a Hospital Board that reviews medical research and studies related to improving medical care. When she is not working or volunteering, she loves spending time with her husband and fellow bar member, Brian Proffitt, and their two children. She is an avid runner who strives to meet her goal of completing at least four half-marathons per year. Whenever someone asks about running, she says sheâ€™s only â€œhalf-crazy.â€
Ms. Greer is licensed to practice in Colorado State Courts, the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals. She has been admitted to practice in Indiana, Montana and Wyoming.
