Andrew P. Reitman


Andrew Reitman is a seasoned trial attorney whose practice includes transportation, hospitality/recreation, construction, professional liability, premises liability, and catastrophic personal injury claims in state and federal courts. A former prosecutor, Andrew has tried over thirty civil and criminal cases to juries in Colorado. In his transportation practice, Andrew represents national railroad and trucking companies facing suits involving claims under the Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), the Safety Appliance Act, the Locomotive Inspection Act, grade crossing accidents, trucking accidents, toxic exposure claims, and wrongful death claims, from initial response and investigation through trial. In a recent jury trial involving a railroad worker’s injury claims under the FELA, Andrew obtained a complete defense verdict, despite a seven-figure pretrial demand. Andrew is also an active member of the National Association of Railroad Trial Counsel.

Beyond transportation, Andrew has defended universities, retailers, recreation companies, hospitality companies and other entities facing high-exposure wrongful death, personal injury, premises liability and other tort claims, including alcohol over-service claims under Colorado’s Dram Shop Act. In his construction practice Andrew represents architects, engineers, consultants, general contractors, subcontractors, and other construction professionals in complex litigation and arbitration under Colorado’s Construction Defect Action Reform Act (CDARA) and Consumer Protection Act.

Before joining Hall & Evans, Andrew worked as a deputy district attorney in El Paso County, Colorado, where he handled all manner of serious felonies (including first degree murder) and advised and instructed state and federal law enforcement officers, police academy cadets, deputy district attorneys and assistant U.S. Attorneys regarding investigative strategies, constitutional rights, effective courtroom presentation, and ethics.
