In addition to insurance defense, she has handled drug and device cases filed in state, federal and MDL courts, complex E-Discovery matters, and medical privacy issues.

Ms. Eloranto has managed a number of multi-million dollar E-Discovery collections from the preservation and collection phase through production. She has drafted legal hold policies, managed the collection and production of foreign language documents, and negotiated complicated two-tier protective orders and electronic document production specifications.

Ms. Eloranto was named a Colorado Super Lawyers Rising Star® in 2010. She is an active member of the Faculty of Federal Advocates where she serves on the Newsletter Committee. Ms. Eloranto has been active in the Colorado Women’s Bar Association (board member, 2005-2007), Colorado Defense Lawyers Association, and the Defense Research Institute. She also served as a consultant to the Swedish Hospital Ethics Committee on Colorado’s medical directive statutes.

  • Prevailed on a number of pretrial motions in a high exposure insurance bad faith case, leading to a favorable settlement for the client. The Court’s rulings excluded most of the Plaintiff’s bad faith expert’s opinions, the policy limits, evidence about plaintiff’s reasonable expectations when purchasing coverage, reserves, and speculative future lost wages.
  • Obtained an order quashing substituted service under C.R.S. § 42-7-414(3)(a) on a driver who was not a named insured, on the basis that allowing a plaintiff to use the statute to obtain personal jurisdiction over someone who was not a named insured violates due process.
