Professional Experience

Dane Torbenson is a Denver native, and grew up in the Park Hill neighborhood in east Denver. After attending Denver East High School, he went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Theatre from the University of Colorado, Boulder. After a number of years as a starving actor, and jobs ranging from waiter to stuntman to private investigator to paralegal, Dane enrolled at the University of Denver College of Law, and received his J.D. in 1998. Dane began practicing criminal defense law at the law firm of Newell and Martens, and eventually became partner in the firm then named Newell and Torbenson. In 2003, Dane decided to broaden his practice to include family law, and joined the firm of his law school classmate and trial and appellate competition partner Randy Corporon for nearly a decade. Dane has also worked with the Law Office of Alexandra White, and The Law Center with primary emphasis on family law and criminal defense litigation. In 2021, Dane joined the team at Kumpf, Charsley & Hansen. Dane’s most frequent areas of practice include complex family law cases, criminal defense, contempt charges, and protection orders. Dane’s extensive experience as a trial attorney provides perspective to counsel his clients regarding the strengths and weaknesses of their cases, and brings confidence and leverage to settlement negotiations. He continues to focus on serving clients in criminal and family law cases, because of his belief in the importance of providing caring assistance to clients during some of the most difficult times of their lives.

Dane has frequently been involved in Denver Theatres as both an actor and a fight choreographer over the last 30 years, but his favorite role is as father to two amazing children adopted from China in 2005 and 2007. Dane is a member of the Speaker’s Bureau for the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, and is a member of the Colorado Bar Association, the Denver Bar Association, and the Colorado LGBT Bar Association. He lives with his wife and family in Denver, Colorado.
