Kim Ryan, an attorney since 1995, has won significant jury verdicts for claims of sexual harassment, race harassment, and retaliation on behalf of workers in cases against large international corporations. She also obtained a $1.2 million settlement on behalf of Spanish-speaking housekeepers who challenged an "English-only" workplace policy - the largest monetary settlement in a case of its kind at the time.

She has served as a television legal analyst on a monthly basis for 4 years, and she has published legal articles on workplace law in newspapers, trade magazines, and on her blog, www.ryanfirm.blogspot.

Kim is the author of two books on workplace laws, including her most recent, Employment Law Guidebook: For Colorado Business Owners and Human Resource Professionals: Book, Bradford Pub Co (December 2006).

A nationally recognized legal expert, she also has provided comment to major national newspapers on topics including "English-Only" rules, pregnancy discrimination, and lawsuits involving retaliation, among others.

Kim taught a law school course on employment discrimination at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, adjunct.

She has an intimate knowledge of workplace laws, both practical and scholarly. Kim has served as a key note speaker and conference presenter for chambers of commerce, the American Bar Association, the Colorado Bar Association, and the National Employment Lawyers, to name a few.

Recent television and webcast work includes live segments from the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Known for her quick responses and warm demeanor, Kim has a true passion for workers' rights laws, print and television journalism, speaking, writing, and research.
