“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”

Elie Weisel

Overview

Steve Kaufman is a Denver personal injury attorney, who has been helping injured people for the past 35 years. During that time, he’s successfully handled any and all types of personal injury cases, from brain and burn injuries, birth traumas, and insurance company abuse to car accidents and slip and falls. Steve’s favorite part of his job is being able to help people who have been hurt by the negligence of another. He has devoted his career to taking on insurance companies and corporations who only want to pay out as little as possible and care nothing about the people who have been hurt or fairness.

Forming Kidneigh & Kaufman, P.C.

Steve graduated law school from Rutgers University in 1980, and began working as a personal injury attorney for Jon Kidneigh, handling cases for people hurt in accidents. Working with Jon Kidneigh, Steve received some of the best on-the-job education any personal injury attorney could get by going up against Procter & Gamble’s attorneys in the first toxic shock syndrome case to go to trial in the country in 1982 when Steve was only two years out of law school. In 1985, Steve and Jon became partners, forming Kidneigh & Kaufman, P.C., and working together for 20 years until Jon retired in 2000. Jon taught Steve that personal injury attorneys do not just handle cases, but represent real people, who depend on their attorneys to guide them through very difficult times in their lives. Now 30 years after Kidneigh & Kaufman first opened its doors, Steve is thrilled to be able to work with his daughter, Jenny Crichton, and son-in-law, Charlie Crichton, and pass onto them the Kidneigh & Kaufman tradition of caring about clients and treating each client like a friend, not a case. Altogether, Kidneigh & Kaufman has recovered more than $95 million for its clients over the last 30 years, since Steve first opened the firm.

During the last 35 years, Steve has handled all kinds of personal injury claims in courts throughout Colorado. Steve has successfully litigated complicated and high value cases involving wrongful death, product defects, medical malpractice, burn injuries, birth defects, brain injuries, premises liability, and insurance bad faith. He is admitted to practice in all Colorado state and federal courts as well as the United States Supreme Court, and has handled trials and appeals throughout the state. He has authored nearly 30 legal articles and most recently, wrote a chapter in the 2015 Colorado Auto Litigator’s Handbook, published by the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.

Outside of the Office

Steve is a Colorado native who was born and raised in metro Denver, went to George Washington High School, and then to college at the University of Oregon before going to law school at Rutgers University. Steve is married, and has 5 kids that range in age from 9 to 37, which means he’s been coaching little league teams for almost 30 years. Whenever Steve has free time, he enjoys reading, exercising, and traveling. Please call Steve today to schedule your free initial consultation.
