Dorothy H. Dean


Dorothy Dean is a senior attorney with The Gold Law Firm, where her practice involves a wide variety of plaintiff’s personal injury matters, including motor vehicle and pedestrian accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, slip and fall accidents, bicycle and motorcycle accidents, and dog bite cases. Ms. Dean also handles insurance bad faith claims and insurance disputes. Ms. Dean handles cases involving serious injuries across the state of Colorado. She is available to co-counsel cases with other attorneys who need pre-litigation and litigation assistance.

Ms. Dean's goal, and the goal of The Gold Law Firm, is to obtain fair, timely, and reasonable compensation for clients who have been seriously injured through no fault of their own.

Ms. Dean received her undergraduate degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Connecticut, her M.S.W. degree from Michigan State University, and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Colorado.
