Prominent Product Safety Attorney Joins Locks Law Firm as Of Counsel

John-Gehlhausen-WebLocks Law Firm announced that John Gehlhausen, Lamar, CO attorney, has joined the firm as Of Counsel. Gehlhausen will merge his national practice into Locks Law.

Gehlhausen has more than 40 years experience specializing in lawn, farm and construction equipment product liability, needle stick injuries and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) litigation. He started his civil practice in the early 1970s after serving four years in the Judge Advocate General Corps of the United States Air Force in Denver.

“We are excited to welcome such an experienced and successful attorney to the firm,” said Locks Law Firm Founding Partner Gene Locks. “We’ve worked with John on a number of cases and felt this merger was a good fit for all parties involved. John and our team of attorneys both share a dedication to protect the rights of injured victims and are used to hard-fought litigation with major defendants.”

A recipient of the Kenneth Norman Kripke 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, Gehlhausen has held every elected office in that organization, including the presidency from 1990-1991. He is also a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and a member of the American Association for Justice, AAJ CRPS Litigation Group (Chairman, 2013), AAJ Leaders Forum, American Board of Trial Advocates, Public Justice Foundation, and Public Justice.

Gehlhausen is a member of the Colorado and 10th Circuit Court of Appeals bar associations, as well as the bar of the U.S. Court of Military Appeals, U.S. District Court for Colorado and U.S. Claims Court. He has lectured numerous times on civil law topics for the Colorado and North Dakota trial lawyers associations, the Colorado and Oklahoma bar associations, and the American Association for Justice, as well as being an instructor for the National Institute for Trial Advocacy.

Gehlhausen earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Evansville (B.A., 1965) and his law degree from Vanderbilt University (J.D., 1968).
