Mr. Basile focuses on water rights law and associated matters. He earned his J.D. from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 2011, having focused his studies on water and natural resource law. While in law school, he interned for The Honorable Nancy J. Lichtenstein of the Colorado Court of Appeals and served as a student attorney in the Environmental Law Clinic. He also served as both a staff editor and Symposium editor for the University of Denver Water Law Review. His 2011 symposium, titled “A Vision for the Future: Balancing Population Growth with Increasing Water Demand”, explored the implications of the state’s ballooning population, especially along the Front Range corridor, and the viable options appropriators may have for securing adequate, responsible, and sustainable water supplies well into the future.

Following this exposure to civil litigation, Mr. Basile then worked for a large insurance defense firm in Denver. There, he defended dozens of first and third party claims. His responsibilities encompassed all aspects of the litigation process across a range of subject areas, including tort and personal injury claims, contract disputes, and constitutional issues. His trial experience includes successfully obtaining a complete defense verdict for a commercial trucking client in a large personal injury action.

Originally from Wisconsin, Mr. Basile graduated cum laude from Saint Louis University in 2007. After numerous college summers spent guiding wilderness expeditions throughout the Northern and Western United States and Canada, he was drawn to the mountains of Colorado. In his free time, Mr. Basile enjoys fly fishing and cycling throughout Colorado.
