Colo. 2015) - Called in the evening before the worldwide premier of the documentary film Amazing Grace, which features a 1972 live gospel performance by Aretha Franklin, WTO obtained a temporary restraining order stopping the Telluride Film Festival from screening the film. The federal injunction protected the name and image rights of the famed vocalist.
      Bristol Bay v. Lampack (Colo. Sup. Ct. 2013) - Secured dismissal from the Colorado Supreme Court for Simon & Schuster in a case involving a movie studio's $50 million damages claim based on alleged false representation of Clive Cussler readership figures.
      Represented BP in a class action alleging underpaid royalties. Plaintiffs awarded only a fraction of the original demand.
      Nickerson v. Quiznos (Colo. Denver Cnty. Dist. Ct. 2004) - Brought a lawsuit on behalf of public shareholders of a restaurant chain and obtained a favorable settlement for shareholders squeezed out in a corporate merger.
      Swails v. Automotive Transmission Specialist (Colo. Jefferson Cnty. Dist. Ct.) - Successfully tried to a jury a breach of contract and fraud case against a manufacturer of diesel truck performance parts, resulting in judgment exceeding $1 million.

      Successfully represented a Hispanic tax preparer in a civil rights injunction action against a county district attorney who had unconstitutionally sought tax records of Hispanic workers in an identity theft investigation.
      Successfully defended a multinational cable television company in an intercontinental employment dispute with former executive.
      Successfully brought and tried in arbitration a breach of contract claim against a parts distributor on behalf of a manufacturer of motorcycle engine fuel injection controllers.
