Practice Areas


We represent employers and carriers on workers' compensation cases in every Colorado, Arizona, Florida, Nebraska and Wyoming venue, combining state-of-the-art legal knowledge with thorough preparation and aggressive litigation skills. We also handle appeals and subrogation claims, bringing to bear the same creativity that undergirds our trial work and drawing from our experience at pursuing recovery from third parties in District Court.

Our attorneys have excellent reputations in the legal and business community and distinguish themselves by their talent in analyzing cases. Properly screened and prepared cases can be won with surprising frequency. We recommend litigating only cases which are likely to be won and appealing only those cases which present genuine issues of law. By sticking to this philosophy, Ritsema & Lyon attorneys have earned credibility with the workers' compensation Administrative Law Judges. Ultimately this approach saves our clients money and treats claimants fairly.


Ritsema & Lyon represents employers and insurance carriers for general insurance defense, including construction, premises liability, product liability, motor vehicle casualty claims and bad faith. Paul Feld, Michael Perales and Robert Wren comprise our general liability group and are available to handle any of your insurance defense needs.  Our attorneys have extensive experience in the liability arena and are ready to serve your needs for representation in the above areas. For questions regarding our insurance defense practice, please contact Paul Feld, Michael Perales or Robert Wren.


Ritsema & Lyon has a well respected Medicare department to assist our clients with the growing number of Medicare issues. This service is available to guide you through the complex maze of Medicare issues that affect the settlement of workers' compensation claims.
