Doug Benson founded Benson, Kerrane, Storz and Nelson, P.C. in 2003 (then known as Benson & Associates), and worked with the firm until 2015.  Prior to founding BKSN, Doug was a partner at the law firm of Burdman & Benson LLP, one of the pioneering construction defect firms in Colorado, California, and other western states. Doug coined BKSN’s long-standing tagline, “Get The Home You Paid For” as a shorthand for the firm’s commitment to consumer and property rights protection.

A seasoned trial attorney for over 20 years, Doug’s experience included numerous jury trials, arbitrations, and mediations.  He was a court-assigned mediator on numerous occasions, and prided himself on utilizing alternative dispute resolution to resolve claims for clients through mediation and negotiation.  Doug presented more than 40 legal and educational seminars throughout the western United States. 

Perhaps Doug’s greatest lasting legacy is making BKSN a great place to work.  He also encouraged and exemplified a spirit of giving back to the community - generosity and service that that have become hallmarks of BKSN and its employees.

Since leaving the firm in 2015, Doug has dedicated much of his time to his many philanthropic activities.
