Biography at a Glance
Damian Arguello is a Colorado native and a partner at Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP (DGS), one of Colorado’s largest and most venerable law firms. After graduation from Daniels in 1990, Arguello became an insurance professional. In 1994, he joined a select team of claims professionals and McKinsey & Company consultants to reengineer a Chicago-based insurance company’s claims process. Following that project, Arguello became the claims manager for a top-20 insurance brokerage headquartered in Albuquerque, where he instituted new processes for expediting customer claims-handling, advocated for customers in coverage disputes with insurance companies, and led the brokerage’s internal risk management efforts.
In 2001, Arguello returned to DU to attend law school at night while continuing his insurance work. Arguello was selected as a Chancellor’s Scholar, served as a senior staff editor for the DU Law Review, and received academic achievement awards in several subjects.
Upon graduation from Sturm College of Law in 2004, Arguello joined DGS as an associate and was elected to equity partnership in 2012. While his practice has included a wide variety of transactional and litigation matters, Arguello primarily represents corporate policyholders, counseling them on insurance and risk management issues, negotiating insurance and indemnity contracts and litigating coverage disputes with insurers.
