Tincher, Gina L.

As a litigator, Gina Tincher frequently draws on her background in law enforcement to counsel clients on substance-permissive laws, strict liabilities statutes and lawsuits involving municipalities or police officers. Gina’s previous experience equips her to understand how legal, political and business interests influence the goals of her clients.

Gina represents developers in CERCLA matters, such as cases involving Department of Defense contamination and environmental clean-up. She also regularly works on Section 1983 matters including charges brought against cities and local law enforcement agencies. Working with clients in emerging regulated industries, Gina is able to draw on her previous experience as a narcotics detective to advise clients on how new laws influence related and overlapping industries as well as city government.

Prior to joining the firm, Gina worked at the University of Denver's Environmental Law Clinic as a student attorney. Prior to law school, she worked as a narcotics detective for the Gainesville Police Department in Florida.

Representative Matters
  • Successfully arbitrated a construction design dispute for a large, privately held real estate development group in Denver. A defective boiler system design in a new Denver luxury apartment complex forced our client to perform extensive remedial work and incur revenue losses throughout 2017 and 2018. Our client was awarded damages for every category of its claims including nearly all of its out-of-pocket costs, concessions expenditures and, as the prevailing party, will recover all or a significant portion of its incurred attorneys’ fees. Expected net recovery is in excess of $1.1M.
