In 2011, Boyle won a $200,000 verdict for a wrongfully accused immigrant client in a malicious prosecution case, he helped a retiree defend his First and Second Amendment civil rights in a successful lawsuit, and he authored a winning brief in an important statutory insurance bad faith case. He also submitted an amicus curiae brief on behalf of CTLA inAveryt v. Wal-Mart, where the Colorado Supreme Court reversed the trial court's order for a new trial after a Weld County jury found for Holly Averyt and awarded her a fair verdict in a fair trial.
“I saw the potential in Nelson as a law clerk in my office back in 2004,” said Natalie Brown, a past CTLA president and partner at Leventhal Brown & Puga P.C. “The best part about him receiving this award is that we can share in his success and look forward to watching him grow as an attorney.”
Boyle also holds a B.A. in history from Temple University and an M.A. in History from New Mexico State University. He has published several articles and regularly makes CLE presentations about his areas of practice.
