Actress-turned-attorney and ‘modern-day Erin Brockovich’ Kelly Hyman offers a closer look at highlights from her career as she’s named among Colorado’s top class action lawyers.
From tobacco litigation and bladder sling lawsuits to being named one of Colorado’s best class action trial lawyers, actress-turned-attorney and ‘modern-day Erin Brockovich’ Kelly Hyman looks back on a number of career highlights as she prepares to speak at next month’s Mass Torts Made Perfect Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“While based at a law firm in Florida, I worked on tobacco litigation and represented individuals who were harmed by medical devices and drugs,” reveals Kelly Hyman. These cases were both interesting and memorable, she says, as she knew that her clients had been harmed, and, of course, wanted to help.
A native Floridian, Kelly Hyman was raised in New York City and southern California. Before turning her attention to law, Hyman enjoyed a successful career as an actress, appearing in various television shows, movies, Off-Broadway plays, commercials, and more. The recipient of a highly prestigious AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell for three consecutive years, the attorney was also recently named as one of the top class action trial lawyers in Colorado.
Memorable victories in this area, she says, include transvaginal mesh and bladder sling lawsuits and water contamination cases. “I represented a number of women who had transvaginal mesh implanted and subsequently endured serious complications as a result,” explains Hyman.
“Knowing that I was helping to undo a wrong and make a positive impact on these women’s lives is something which I’ll always truly cherish,” adds the attorney. Knowing that these women received justice for their harm, she says, continues to represent one of the proudest aspects of her legal career.
With extensive experience in mass tort litigation, Kelly Hyman has, to date, represented hundreds of claimants in cases filed in both state and federal court. Products featured in Hyman’s bladder sling and transvaginal mesh lawsuits included those supplied by Johnson & Johnson, Bard, Coloplast, Mentor, and Boston Scientific. “During my career, I’ve have performed common benefit services for a variety of mass tort projects,” adds the highly successful attorney.
Her relentless pursuit of justice has seen the media refer to Hyman as a modern-day Erin Brockovich, after the American legal clerk, consumer advocate, and environmental activist who was instrumental in building a case against the Pacific Gas and Electric Company of California in the 1990s. “It’s great to hear that people consider me to be a modern-day Erin Brockovich,” beams the attorney, “as she represents a truly inspirational female role model.”
“It’s incredibly humbling,” Kelly Hyman continues, “to be compared to someone who has created the kind of legacy which she has.”
“Justice works,” she adds, wrapping up, “when people stand up for what they believe in.”
Kelly Hyman is set to speak at next month’s Mass Torts Made Perfect Seminar in Las Vegas, Nevada. This fall’s event kicks off on Tuesday, October 22, and wraps up on Thursday, October 24. Join Hyman for ‘The Common Issues Class: Rule 23(c)(4)’ at 4:45 pm on Wednesday, October 23, 2019. For more information about Mass Torts Made Perfect, visit https://mtmp.com/.

Democrat strategist TV legal analyst and lawyer Kelly Hyman is also set to speak at the event.
“There are countless reasons why trial attorneys and their teams head to Las Vegas each fall for the unique Mass Torts Made Perfect experience,” explains Hyman, recently named among the top class action trial lawyers in Colorado and recipient of a prestigious AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell for three years running.
From beginners in mass torts and class actions to veterans in complex litigation, Mass Torts Made Perfect has, she says, created the ideal conference to assist attorneys and their teams in growing their practices. “Attendees will not only learn about the most important emerging mass torts and class actions,” adds Kelly Hyman, “but will also receive an opportunity to meet some of the very biggest players in this particular area of law.”
Mass Torts Made Perfect’s twice-yearly seminars in Las Vegas are, say the event’s organizers, designed for those working in the areas of plaintiff mass torts, class actions, and personal injury litigation alike, as well as qualified individuals looking to expand their practices to include these areas. “As the largest gathering of mass tort attorneys anywhere in the nation, it’s also the ideal opportunity to network,” suggests Kelly Hyman.
Boasting more than 100 speakers, including titans of mass tort and class action litigation, Mass Torts Made Perfect’s upcoming Las Vegas seminar truly offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn from some of the very best in the field, according to attorney Kelly Hyman.

Actress-turned-attorney Kelly Hyman offers a closer look at a number of her career highlights to date.
A successful attorney in the class action group at Franklin D. Azar & Associates in Denver, Colorado, lawyer Kelly Hyman is today primarily focused on consumer class action lawsuits. During her career to date, the attorney has represented hundreds of claimants in claims and individual actions, filed in both state and federal court. With some of her most high-profile cases involving tobacco litigation, transvaginal mesh lawsuits, and water contamination, Hyman looks back on a number of highlights from her successful and varied career.
“Prior to joining Franklin D. Azar & Associates, I represented clients in a class-action lawsuit concerning American Spirit,” reveals Hyman, “and served on its discovery committee.”
With extensive experience in mass tort litigation, Kelly Hyman has, to date, represented hundreds of claimants in claims and individual actions. “From cases filed in state courts to federal court, these include everything from water contamination to transvaginal mesh and bladder sling suits,” she explains.
Products featured in Kelly Hyman’s transvaginal mesh and bladder sling lawsuits include those supplied by Bard, Coloplast, Johnson & Johnson, Mentor, Boston Scientific, AMS, and ARIS. The highly successful attorney has also acted on multiple discovery committees and has performed common benefit services for a variety of mass tort projects.
Kelly Hyman is a member of the Florida Bar, the Washington D.C. Bar, the Colorado Bar, the Colorado Bar Association, as well as the Colorado chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Hyman is also a member of the American Association for Justice and routinely participates in the Women’s Caucus Lobby Day in Washington D.C.
Elsewhere, from 2017 to 2018, Kelly Hyman served as president of the Palm Beach Federal Bar Association. “I’m also a proud graduate,” she adds, “of the American Association for Justice’s leadership academy.”
Graduating from the University of California in Los Angeles and receiving her Juris Doctor degree cum laude from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law, early on in her legal career Kelly Hyman clerked for the Honorable Robert Mark, United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Southern District of Florida. “I later went on to clerk,” she adds, “for the Honorable Brian Sandoval, now the former Governor of Nevada, when he was a United States District Court Judge.”
“While studying for my undergraduate degree,” Kelly Hyman continues, “I also served as a White House intern with the Office of Presidential Inquiries.”
Kelly Hyman has since received an AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell and has lectured at numerous seminars on subjects ranging from mass tort litigation to mindfulness.
A native Floridian, Kelly Hyman was raised in New York City and southern California. Before turning her attention to law, Hyman enjoyed a successful career as an actress, appearing in various television shows, movies, Off-Broadway plays, commercials, and more.

Attorney and legal analyst Kelly Hyman explores the rise of female-led businesses in the United States.
With the number of women-owned businesses in the United States now topping 10 million for the first time, levels of female entrepreneurship are rising faster than ever before. With explosive growth witnessed in recent years, actress-turned-attorney and television legal analyst Kelly Hyman takes a closer look at the much-welcomed rise of businesses owned by America’s millions of women entrepreneurs.
“Women-owned businesses are on the rise in the United States,” reveals Kelly Hyman, a graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law who enjoyed a successful career as an actress for 25 years in New York and California before embracing the legal profession.
Indeed, a 2017 study carried out by the U.S. Census Bureau revealed that the proportion of businesses owned by women had risen from around a quarter in 1997 to more than one-third just two decades later.
The most significant growth, according to the study, occurred between 2007 and 2017, with the number of women-owned businesses in the U.S. jumping from 7.8 million to a fraction under 10 million. The study, Kelly Hyman reveals, forms part of the Census Bureau’s latest five-year economic census. “In the two years since this growth has not only continued but has accelerated further still,” she adds.
According to Kelly Hyman, who’s set to co-chair the 2019 Alliance of Women Trial Lawyers Annual Conference next month, the most recent figures strongly suggest progress toward gender equality in entrepreneurship, both in the U.S. and overseas.
In the United States, burgeoning female-led businesses are strongly supported by initiatives such as the Office of Women’s Business Ownership, part of the U.S. Small Business Administration. “The Small Business Administration’s Office of Women’s Business Ownership helps female entrepreneurs to launch new businesses,” Hyman explains, “and to compete in often traditionally male-dominated marketplaces.”
The organization also helps women business owners to connect with funding opportunities and training, according to the award-winning attorney. “The Office of Women’s Business Ownership supports women entrepreneurs via programs including business training and mentorship, as well as with access to much-needed credit and capital,” Hyman goes on to reveal.
According to the Office of Women’s Business Ownership, women entrepreneurs and female-led businesses still face a significant number of unique obstacles and challenges in today’s modern business world. Businesses receiving assistance from their local Small Business Administration district office-based Women’s Business Center, however, routinely see significantly higher rates of success than those without the same or similar levels of support, Kelly Hyman points out.
“Accordingly,” she adds, wrapping up, “the Office of Women’s Business Ownership, powered by the U.S. Small Business Administration, is actively supporting a true leveling of the playing field for women entrepreneurs across the United States.”

The Alliance of Women Trial Lawyers’ mission statement centers around advancing the influence and impact of women in the legal community, according to Hyman. “The program hopes to unite, inspire, and empower women attorneys,” she explains, “through supporting the success of one another’s careers.”
The yearly conference, meanwhile, affords attendees a chance to take in a multitude of valuable presentations and promotes equally valuable networking opportunities among a wide variety of other benefits. “The event is the perfect place,” adds Hyman, “for women committed to excellence in the field and to building up their professional networks.”
Discounted tickets are offered to law students, clerks, and first-year associates. “The aim of this,” Hyman explains, “is to allow these attendees to further their reach, and to provide women just starting out in the industry with a perfect opportunity to attend, to network, and to learn from the best, and all at a significantly reduced cost.”
A staunch advocate for women in law, Kelly Hyman has a long history of speaking at law industry conferences and events across the United States. “It’s about helping others in the field,” she adds, wrapping up, “and I take every opportunity presented to me in order to help share my knowledge, and to promote the success of other women attorneys wherever possible.”
Kelly Hyman is a member of the American Association for Justice, the Florida Bar, the Washington D.C. Bar, the Colorado Bar, the Colorado Bar Association, as well as the Colorado chapter of the Federal Bar Association. Previously, Hyman enjoyed a successful career as an actress for 25 years in New York and California, appearing in various television shows, movies, Off-Broadway plays, commercials, and more.

Actress turned legal analyst and attorney Kelly Hyman explores the ongoing fight of the United States women’s national soccer team for equal pay.
This year has seen the United States women’s national soccer team scoop its fourth FIFA World Cup final win. Despite this, America’s professional women soccer players continue to face unequal pay, according to Kelly Hyman. An attorney with Franklin D. Azar & Associates in Denver, Colorado, the actress turned lawyer and legal analyst examines the ongoing fight for equal pay in women’s soccer.
“The USA women’s soccer team won its fourth FIFA World Cup championship in 2019,” explains Hyman, “yet they still face the challenge of fighting for equal pay.”
While some have argued that men’s sports are more popular and thus more lucrative, this year, the women’s USA soccer team drew a larger television audience than their male counterparts attracted during the previous year, according to Hyman. Key points, she says, surrounding the issue of equal pay for this year’s women champions center primarily on performance and revenue.
“The women’s FIFA World Cup finals have been held every four years since the first championship in 1991,” Hyman reveals. Incredibly, of the eight championships to date, the United States women’s national soccer team has triumphed in half of all the finals held, making it the most victorious team in the league. “America’s women soccer champions are setting records,” says Hyman, “something which isn’t going unnoticed.”
Indeed, as the United States, women’s national soccer team attracted a record-breaking crowd for the FIFA World Cup final this year, the near-60,000 capacity host stadium began to chant for fair pay. “‘Equal pay! Equal pay! Equal pay!’ erupted from the crowd,” adds Hyman.
Earlier this year, in March, 28 women, each of whom has played on the United States women’s national soccer team, filed a gender discrimination lawsuit against the U.S. Soccer Federation. “The suit accuses the organization of not providing the same standard of working conditions or pay,” Hyman explains, “when compared with the men’s soccer league.”
“The women, however,” she continues, “have completely outperformed the men, with the men’s team not even qualifying for the latest FIFA World Cup, for example.”
Kelly Hyman also explains how the women’s team is attracting a much larger television audience. “The women’s event attracted over 14 million American television viewers this year,” the attorney points out, “whereas the men’s championship last year drew only around 11 million, according to Nielsen figures.”
This is further reflected in in-game revenue. “From 2016 to 2018, the women’s games generated $50.8 million in revenue compared to the men’s games bringing in $49.9 million,” points out Hyman. The women players suing the U.S. Soccer Federation, therefore, have numerous highly valid points working in their favor as they dominate men both in terms of TV ratings and revenue, as well as championship performance. “Still,” she adds, “they continue to be paid far less.”
A recent report by The New York Times revealed that the prize money for the 2019 women’s FIFA World Cup was $30 million. This, says attorney Kelly Hyman, pales in comparison to the $400 million paid to the men the previous year. “Congress, however, is beginning to look into the matter,” adds the seasoned legal analyst.
A letter from 50 congress members to the president of the U.S. Soccer Federation has allegedly asked why women are paid so much less than men. “The letter stated that women players make around $30,000 less than male players,” explains Kelly Hyman, “while men also get almost 40 percent more in bonuses.”
“It’s hoped, therefore, that the matter will not only bring more attention to the issue of equal pay across the board,” she adds, wrapping up, “but also more attention to the sport of women’s soccer, helping further boost the salaries of women players.”
T.V. legal analyst and attorney Kelly Hyman offers adept insight into abstract thinking in law.
Many false perceptions, says Kelly Hyman, exist surrounding lawyers, from the profession, being ‘boring’ and ‘rigid,’ to the belief that legal professionals exist solely within specific personality types, often met with disdain. Here, the attorney and legal analyst set the record straight as she explores abstract thinking in law.
“Most people think that lawyers are boring professionals who read books all the time,” suggests Hyman. This, however, she says, is a wholly false perception. “The life of a lawyer is the opposite of the word ‘boring,'” says the T.V. legal analyst and attorney.
In fact, according to Hyman, an attorney leads an exciting life filled with creativity. It is not, she explains, a special field meant for specific personality types, nor should lawyers be met with disdain. “A lawyer needs to read, do research, write, and analyze extensively,” adds Hyman, “much of which calls for a great level of creativity.”
Hyman believes that many people rule out the possibility of having a legal career because they assume that attorneys are rigid individuals. “Quite the opposite,” says Kelly Hyman. “Instead, an attorney must define thoughts into real-life situations, and must transfer abstract concepts to actual situations,” she adds.
“Also,” Hyman continues, “a lawyer must think about different ways to argue a client’s case before a judge and jury, often interpreting legal regulations in a way which stretches the imagination.”
Consequently, according to Hyman, an attorney is rarely a boring individual, devoid of any creative thoughts. “The reality is, in fact,” she suggests, “that an excellent lawyer is the equivalent of a creative genius.”
For example, Hyman highlights how a class action lawsuit is not simply about filing a negligence case based on a legal argument. Rather, an attorney studies the details of a client’s case before deciding whether to file a claim. After filing such a lawsuit, a lawyer then develops arguments offering a client the opportunity to receive compensation for injuries, pain, or other sufferings.
“Ultimately,” adds Hyman, wrapping up, “I believe that an excellent attorney should help clients by interpreting laws in new, philosophical ways, extending far beyond written words.”
A graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, Kelly Hyman is an attorney at Franklin D. Azar & Associates in Denver, Colorado, focused on class action lawsuits and mass tort litigation.

Attorney Kelly Hyman considers the emotionally charged issue of Alabama’s new abortion law.
Recently named among the top 25 class action trial lawyers in Colorado by The National Trial Lawyers, a professional organization of leading U.S. trial attorneys, native Floridian attorney and legal analyst Kelly Hyman comments on Alabama’s new abortion law, now likely headed to the Supreme Court.
“Alabama’s new abortion law has everyone taking a position on one side of the issue or the other,” Hyman suggests. While the public is emotionally charged by the issue, she says, supporters of the law are pursuing what she calls a deliberate tactic.
“The supporters of the law in Alabama’s legislative body are pursuing a deliberate tactic,” states Hyman, “and, ultimately, the law may force the U.S. Supreme Court to reevaluate the Roe vs. Wade doctrine.”
Roe vs. Wade was a 1973 landmark decision by the Supreme Court which ruled that a state law banning abortions, other than to save the life of the mother, was unconstitutional.
Alabama’s abortion law is set to go into practice in November and would represent the harshest abortion law currently in place in the United States, according to Kelly Hyman.
Political action groups, however, are currently taking legal action to block the enactment of the law. “They’re not alone, either,” Hyman, a graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, suggests.
Indeed, numerous so-called reproductive rights groups have also promised to launch lawsuits, against the state of Alabama, after learning that state governor Kay Ivey signed the bill.
Under the new law, it would be illegal for any healthcare provider to participate, or to attempt to participate, in abortion procedures, for almost any reason. “While the law makes allowances for instances in which the pregnant patient’s life is at risk, there are related restrictions which must also be considered,” adds Hyman.
Found guilty of violating the law, medical practitioners stand to face hefty fines and decades in prison. “While public criticism of the law has spread across the country, Alabama lawmakers may not expect the law to hold up to legal scrutiny,” Hyman reveals.
In fact, according to the attorney, they may expect the law to be defeated in the state’s lower courts as it violates the protections offered by Roe vs. Wade, making abortion legal in many circumstances since the 1970s. “Still,” she continues, “they may pursue the issue all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, wishing to have the Roe vs. Wade decision challenged.”
Lawsuits filed by action groups such as Planned Parenthood argue that the new law violates other rights, too, specifically the 14th Amendment, which guarantees the right to liberty. The 14th Amendment is also said to imply a right to privacy; a right which is further violated, lawsuit documents suggest, by the abortion law, according to Hyman.
“Other states also facing lawsuits to challenge restrictive abortion laws include Ohio, Mississippi, and Kentucky,” she adds, wrapping up.
Attorney Kelly Hyman named among top 25 class action trial lawyers.
Following news of her recently received, highly prestigious AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell for the third year running, attorney Kelly Hyman has subsequently also been named as one of the top 25 class action trial lawyers in Colorado by The National Trial Lawyers, a professional organization of leading U.S. trial attorneys. A native Floridian now settled in Denver, Hyman offers a closer look at both accolades.
“The organization, The National Trial Lawyers, is comprised of premier trial lawyers from across the United States,” explains Hyman, “who exemplify superior qualifications as either criminal defense or civil plaintiff lawyers.”
An AV Preeminent rating, meanwhile, is a designation trusted worldwide by buyers of legal services, according to the award-winning attorney.
“I’m immensely pleased with both the recognition from The National Trial Lawyers, and my renewed, highest-possible AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which I’ve now held for three consecutive years,” adds Hyman, an attorney at Denver, Colorado-based Franklin D. Azar & Associates focused on class action lawsuits and mass tort litigation.
An avid industry speaker, Kelly Hyman regularly provides legal analysis for shows such as Fox News, and Fox and Friends, and has appeared on Kansas’ Jiggy Jaguar radio show. “The show boasts more than 12,000 daily listeners and centers on issues which the mainstream media is not currently covering,” she explains.
Hyman has also appeared on Issues and Ideas with Chris DeBellow, known for its expertly presented current events coverage, and The Whistleblower with Mychal Wilson, a weekly, nonpartisan political radio show widely available to stream online.
In her work, attorney Kelly Hyman is heavily concentrated on mass tort litigation, a civil action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or more defendants in either state or federal court.
A graduate of UCLA and the University of Florida College of Law, Kelly Hyman is an attorney at Franklin D. Azar & Associates in Denver, Colorado, focused on class action lawsuits. A staunch advocate for social justice and women’s issues whose other interests include current events, voting rights, female empowerment, and the entertainment industry, Kelly Hyman—who previously enjoyed a successful career as an actress for more than two decades between California and New York—is married to Judge Paul Hyman, Jr.
Attorney Kelly Hyman speaks openly about her career, advocacy work, and personal beliefs.
A native Floridian now settled in Denver, Colorado, Kelly Hyman is an Australian-American actor turned attorney and television legal analyst. A keen champion for social justice, women’s rights, the power of mindfulness, and the Democratic Party, here, Hyman reveals more about her advocacy work and other beliefs.
“I’m a firm believer in equality, social justice, and women’s rights,” reveals the attorney, who regularly appears as a legal analyst on television shows such as Fox and Friends.
Touching more closely on social justice, Hyman turns to a United Nations document titled Social Justice in an Open World: The Role of the United Nations. “The document states, ‘Social justice may be broadly understood as the fair and compassionate distribution of the fruits of economic growth,'” she reveals.
“This meets,” suggests Kelly Hyman, “with the most widely accepted, modern take on social justice, whereby which significant focus is placed upon, for example, human rights education, health care, and ecology and the environment.”
In her professional life, attorney Kelly Hyman handles mass tort litigation, a civil action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or more defendants in either state or federal court. “The four main categories of mass tort litigation in the United States,” she adds, “cover prescription drug injuries, medical device injuries, product liability injuries, and what’s known as toxic contamination.”
On a more personal level, the attorney is a staunch advocate for women’s rights and a keen follower of current events.
Furthermore, Hyman has previously spoken out about the importance of mindfulness, has uncovered key concerns among today’s women in business, and has examined the history of women’s suffrage in the United States. “Becoming part of the U.S. Constitution on August 26, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, to this day, states, ‘The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex,'” she explains.
The attorney and television legal analyst is also a committed supporter of the Democratic Party. “The party seeks,” adds Hyman, wrapping up, “to promote policies centered around topics such as environmental and consumer protection, support for labor unions, equal opportunities, LGBT rights, same-sex marriage, universal health care, stricter gun laws, and campaign finance, police, and immigration reform.”
