Damon Bruntz is a native of Colorado who grew up in Aurora. He received a Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, from Regis University and a Juris Doctor from the University of Denver.
Damon is licensed to practice law in the State of Colorado, and before the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.
In 2007 and 2008, before opening his own practice, Damon worked as a contract attorney for two experienced attorneys in Littleton whose combined practice areas include Family Law, Estate Planning. Damon continues to work closely with both of those attorneys, in addition to working with his own clients.
In 2006, Damon worked at the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Colorado, as an judicial intern. His experience there working on Chapter 11 Bankruptcy cases, in addition to the work described below as a researcher on Chapter 13 cases, has been invaluable in understanding both Bankruptcy law and the many and complicated reasons people seek bankruptcy relief.
Prior to starting his practice, Damon trained and supervised a number of other researchers who labored to collect and manage data from hundreds of Chapter 13 Bankruptcy cases before and after the effective date of the 2005 Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA). This data was eventually used by Professors Bruce M. Price, of the University of San Francisco School of Law, and Terry Dalton, of the University of Denver Graduate School of International Studies and Daniels College of Business. Their article From Downhill to Slalom: An Empirical Analysis of the Effectiveness of BAPCPA (and Some Unintended Consequences) was published in the Yale Law & Policy Review, Vol. 26, 2007.
