Meet the Attorneys Handling The DaVita Lawsuit
Hi, my name is Colleen Calandra. My job is to help you if you have a legal problem with your job. I have been practicing law for over a decade. The values of hard work and caring for people struggling with problems with their job is important to me. I am very passionate about my job because it gives me the opportunity to help protect hard-working employees.
Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin, I always wanted to be a lawyer. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, I attended law school at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan and graduated cum laude in 2001. I practiced law for five years and then I returned to law school and earned a Masters in Law, L.L.M., in Labor and Employment Law. This is an advanced legal degree focusing exclusively on labor and employment issues.
Hello, my name is Jessica Derakhshanian. For me, each case presents a new and interesting challenge to impact the law, as well as an opportunity to truly make a difference in someone’s life. My passion for bringing justice to others drives me to take even the most complex cases. Whether I am fighting for compensation that is rightfully owed, advocating for persons that have been discriminated against, or challenging the current state of the law, I am committed to serving my clients as I consider it a true privilege to help those in need.
Although I am originally from Kansas City, I am proud to call Denver home. In my free time, I love to spend time with family and friends, hike, ski, and enjoy all of the other great outdoor activities Colorado has to offer.
