Miles L. Buckingham
Miles Buckingham’s practice is litigation-based, and focuses on the defense of clients in litigation, including homeowners’ association lawsuits and licensing matters for their managers. His clients include community association managers (CAM) in litigation, licensing, and civil rights matters, homeowners associations in litigation and civil rights matters, attorneys defending against claims of legal malpractice, attorneys in grievance matters, and non-profit corporations in various suits and actions.
In the time since Colorado began licensing community association managers / CAMs, Mr. Buckingham has assisted management companies in disputes with the Division of Regulatory Agencies (DORA), and has worked with CAMs to prepare and revise their management contracts, policies, disclosures, and other documents to be compliant with the still-development laws and regulations.
In representing his clients, Mr. Buckingham makes keeping his clients informed and educated about their case a chief priority.
Mr. Buckingham was named a SuperLawyer in Colorado in 2016–2018, and was named a Rising Star by that same publication in 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
He was the co-chair of the 2009 Preventing Legal Malpractice CLE Seminar, one of the most popular training sessions for Colorado attorneys each year.
A Colorado native, Mr. Buckingham attended Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, where he obtained a B.A. in political science. He returned home to attend the University of Colorado School of Law in Boulder after college and after a brief stint in Washington, D.C.
Mr. Buckingham was also a Deputy District Attorney for the 6th Judicial District and an associate civil attorney in Durango, Colorado at which time he became licensed in New Mexico (inactive) and in the Southern Ute Tribal Court.
Outside of the practice of law, Mr. Buckingham has taught classes on family violence to advocacy groups and various law classes for high school students. Before returning to Denver, Mr. Buckingham was an attorney-coach for the first Colorado High School Mock Trial team from Durango.
