Health insurers and the government are constantly trying to reduce plaintiff recovery by making 'lien' claims against any settlement. Keeping myself apprised of developments in lien issues is critical, and our firm strives to address liens in a way that best protects the client.
Colleen Libbey, Managing Partner, Libbey Law Office, LLC
With nearly 20 years dedicated to law, Libbey brings a wealth of knowledge to her industry, and, in particular to her area of specialization, plaintiff’s personal injury. When asked why she decided to pursue a career in this field, Libbey said:
"When I first got out of law school in 2000, I started out at an insurance defense firm. I decided to transition because I wanted to help claimants instead of defending the insurance companies who try to take advantage of victims."
The managing partner of Libbey Law Offices, Libbey is renowned for her skilled representation and her dedication to genuine client care. Going above and beyond to protect her clients' rights, she works tirelessly to help injury victims obtain maximum compensation so that they can move on with their lives. Libbey’s personalized service combined with her intimate knowledge of the defense’s tactics regularly results in millions of dollar recovered on behalf of her clients.
As a thought leader in her field, Libbey has taught classes and seminars on law and ethics as a past adjunct professor at Wayland Baptist University. Today, she is actively involved in various legal organizations and is currently the vice president of the Alaska Association for Justice, where she also serves as the Chair of the Education Committee. She is dedicating to improving the quality of continuing legal education available to personal injury plaintiff attorneys.
With this prominence in her field, Libbey keeps her eye on developing trends in personal injury law. In particular, she is paying close attention to how health insurance companies use liens in personal injury cases. She noted:
"Health insurers and the government are constantly trying to reduce plaintiff recovery by making 'lien' claims against any settlement. Keeping myself apprised of developments in lien issues is critical, and our firm strives to address liens in a way that best protects the client."
Libbey was named a Top 10 Personal Injury Attorney by the National Academy of Personal Injury Attorneys for 2018 and is a member of the Alaska Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, and the Alaska Association for Justice where she serves as Vice President.
