Stan Garnett

Stan Garnett brings a wealth of experience to his commercial litigation practice, which focuses on complex litigation at both state and federal levels; he has appeared before the United States Supreme Court, the 10th and 11th Circuit Courts of Appeal, the Colorado Appellate Courts, and in state and federal trial courts across the United States. Stan served as district attorney for Boulder County for nearly 10 years before rejoining the firm where he had previously been a senior member of Brownstein’s Litigation Department. During his tenure as district attorney, Stan focused his efforts on prosecuting economic crimes, crimes in the immigrant and homeless communities and homicide cold cases. Elected to three terms, he prioritized prosecuting violent and recidivist offenders, especially those who present a threat to public safety, as well as outreach to more vulnerable populations such as the elderly. Stan was elected President of the Colorado District Attorneys Council in 2017, and served on the board of the National District Attorney’s Association. During his years in private practice, Stan received a number of distinctions from the legal community, and his previous trial experience includes representing former Congressman Mark Udall (D-CO) in Colorado's nationally watched Congressional redistricting case, Salazar v. Davidson. Stan earned a bachelor’s degree and a JD at the University of Colorado.
