While in law school (1998-2001), Mr. Kane clerked for Richard P. Ranson and a larger firm in Denver focused on insurance defense work and construction litigation. Mr. Kane’s clerkships exposed him to heavy highway construction as well as other types of litigation, giving Mr. Kane valuable exposure to the areas of litigation he would eventually practice in.

Mr. Kane practices appellate law in both state and federal courts. Mr. Kane has also successfully defended an appeal before the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission located in Washington D.C. Mr. Kane has had appellate cases published, helping establish legal precedent in the state of Colorado.
