Anderson Barkley, LLC

Jeanine Anderson is a litigator with broad experience in family, employment, consumer protection, and appellate law as well as general civil litigation.  After graduating from the University of Texas School of Law in 1997, Jeanine moved to Denver and began practicing law at the large Denver-based firm of Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, where she became a shareholder in 2006.  At Brownstein, Jeanine was a member of the Litigation and Appellate groups.  Her diverse practice encompassed many types of litigation for a wide variety of clients, from large, publicly-traded companies, to start-up businesses, to individuals.  She successfully tried cases in state and federal court and before arbitral forums, and has handled appeals before the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Colorado Court of Appeals, and the Tennessee Court of Appeals.  While with Brownstein, Jeanine’s abilities as a private-sector litigator were recognized by the magazine 5280, which named her a 2009 Colorado Rising Star.

In 2009, the pull of public service led Jeanine to leave private practice and join the Consumer Protection Section of the Colorado Attorney General’s office. As an Assistant Attorney General, Jeanine strove to protect Colorado consumers from unscrupulous businesses and business practices by enforcing Colorado laws on debt-management services, credit repair, consumer credit, payday lending, fair debt collection, and rent-to-own.   In 2012, she was promoted to Senior Assistant Attorney General and led the Consumer Credit Unit’s team of trial lawyers.

As satisfying as Jeanine’s work for the State was, she decided that she wanted to do more.  Accordingly, in 2015, Jeanine left her position at the Attorney General’s office, and, along with Richard Barkley, founded Anderson Barkley, LLC. Jeanine and Richard are committed to using their experience and expertise to provide cost-effective representation in the areas of family law, employment law, consumer protection law, appellate litigation, and general civil litigation.
