Dehncke has been an "AV Preeminent" rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, a national legal directory, which is the highest rating reflecting both legal ability and professional ethical standards. He has been a personal injury trial attorney since he began practicing law in 1973. He represents and advises injured individuals and their families in the greater Denver area and throughout Northern Colorado, and he represents clients at all levels of the Colorado state and federal court system. He has also served as co-counsel or local counsel in serious personal injury and wrongful death cases involving out-of-state plaintiffs bringing claims in the Colorado court system.

Colorado Injury attorney Richard J. Dehncke has a focused personal injury practice with extensive experience and expertise in all serious injury cases and in brain injury cases involving mild to severe trauma. He represents and advises clients injured in motor vehicle accidents, recreational vehicle accidents, products liability actions, slip and fall accidents, and third party workers' compensation claims. His firm also represents and advises individuals and families in wrongful death actions, insurance claims, and social security disability claims.

This injury law firm utilizes state-of-the-art technology and medical and legal experts, where appropriate, to effectively prepare and litigate cases. We have used doctors from a wide variety of medical fields and specialties as expert witnesses, as well as nurses, medical professionals, psychologists, life care planners, and rehabilitationists. We also work closely with workers' compensation experts as we handle personal injury cases.

This Colorado injury law firm offers effective, efficient, and convenient service to all of its clients. We offer flexible office hours, home and hospital visits, and a free initial consultation to discuss and evaluate your injury case. Personal injury cases are all handled on a contingency fee basis, and we will advance litigation costs to clients in appropriate cases.

As a trained negotiator and an experienced trial attorney, Richard J. Dehncke offers clients a wealth of personal injury expertise and full range of legal services. His injury law firm is committed to seeking creative solutions for our client's causes, through negotiation, arbitration, and litigation.

For nearly 20 years, Mr. Dehncke practiced law with law school classmate and partner attorney Larry Trattler, a well known and widely respected attorney. Larry Trattler was a former president and board member of Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, and vice president of Trial Lawyers for Public Justice.  Larry was justly recognized for his compassionate practice of law in his representation of injured Coloradoans and also for his national work in the interest of Public Justice, consumer safety, and leadership in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America.  When Larry Trattler died unexpectedly in 2001, Mr. Dehncke incorporated Mr. Trattler’s practice into his own, and joined with Larry's long time paralegal Donna Wenger to carry on Mr. Trattler’s work on behalf of injured persons and their families. 

A word about the name “Dehncke”. One more thing you may want to know about this office and this lawyer; Dehncke is pronounced “dane key”. Which makes sense because the origin of the name is actually Danish, with a sort of German twist.  Unfortunately it is also difficult to spell, and we frequently see spellings like: Danke, Denke, Danky, Dehnke, Denkey, Dankey, Dencke, Denky, Dehnky.  Fortunately, we are very well known within the legal community and to the insurance companies who have no problem recognizing our firm.  We just thought you might like to know.
