SuperLawyers.com Badge: Justin M. Plaskov, Rising Star

I currently serve as Of Counsel at Jester Gibson & Moore, LLP in Downtown Denver where I manage a practice dedicated to serving the needs of individuals. Throughout my career, I have primarily focused on serving employees in need of advice and/or representation regarding their current, former, or future employment situation. My clients range from minimum wage workers to mid-level managers and professionals to high-level executives.

Throughout my career, I have had significant success in obtaining large settlements and jury verdicts for my clients. A few of those public cases include:

  • Helping minority employees of a large financial company obtain a $20.5 million settlement in a race and sex discrimination and retaliation lawsuit. EEOC et al. v. Jackson National Life Insurance Company et al., Civil Action No. 16-cv-02472 (D. Colo. 2020).
  • Obtaining a $485,000 settlement on behalf of a whistleblower who was terminated after complaining that his employer was fraudulently selling grenade launchers to the federal government. United States, ex. Rel. James Cole v. Capco, LLC 17-cv-02679 (D. Colo. 2019).
  • Winning a jury verdict of nearly $15 million on behalf of seven mail-handlers who were subjected to race and national origin discrimination and retaliation. Camara, et. al. v. Matheson Trucking, Inc., et.al., 12-CV-03040 (D. Colo. 2015).

A significant portion of my practice is dedicated to consulting with clients to assist in negotiating severance, non-competition, trade secret, non-solicitation, and employment agreements.

Outside of the employment law context, I assist individuals who need help with estate planning documents, including wills and trusts; estate planning litigation; property disputes; construction problems; business disputes; and other litigation matters.

Although we primarily focus on representing employees, we also represent businesses who need an attorney for litigation, business disputes, administrative proceedings, corporate documents, and employment law specific documents (including handbooks, employee contracts, and employment law policies and procedures).
