Primerus Young Lawyers Give Back

On top of new connections and excellent programming, the Primerus Young Lawyers have a chance to participate in something special for the second year running to positively influence less fortunate elementary school age children.

Primerus will be partnering with Wish for Wheels to build bicycles for 35 second grade elementary students at University Preparatory School in Denver. Wish for Wheels is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that gives brand new bicycles and helmets to kids in low income communities. Primerus young lawyers will go to the school and work together with the second graders to build the bikes. Then each second grader will get to take one of the newly assembled bikes home at the end of the day!

Help us further Wish for Wheel’s mission, through the gift of a new bicycle, to transform the lives of kids from low-income families, broadening their scope for personal growth and a healthy lifestyle.

Please come share in this amazing experience with us!

Michael Mihm’s unique trial practice focuses on plaintiff-side legal malpractice, commercial, and personal injury litigation. He is admitted to practice in California and Colorado, but represents clients in courtrooms nationwide.

Litigation can be brutal. Too often, individuals and businesses suffer needlessly because lawyers insist on doing things “the same old way.” Not with us. Not with Mike Ogborn of Ogborn Mihm LLP. Mike’s trademark is his relentless pursuit of new and better answers. His hallmark is the recognition that better answers come only with understanding. Not just surface familiarity, but a true appreciation of your world. Mike takes the time to listen, to answer questions, and to ask questions. He doesn’t just ask “where do you want to go?” He gets you there. As a young lawyer, Mike honed his courtroom presence as a deputy district attorney working for former Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, then the Denver District Attorney. Now, as a civil trial lawyer, Mike focuses his practice on business litigation, personal injury and construction defect litigation. Mike brings his leadership and presence to obtain significant verdicts and settlements for his clients.
