Muliha is an equity partner and Chair of the Benefits Committee at Zupkus & Angell. Her commercial and civil litigation practice encompasses a broad range, including defending both insurance companies and insureds in bad faith, personal and bodily injury claims, and construction defect. Muliha also practices in the area of employment law, providing both pre-litigation and litigation services. Additionally, Muliha has significant appellate experience at all levels and has drafted briefs for the United States Supreme Court, the Colorado Supreme Court, and Colorado Court of Appeals.

In 2014, Muliha was selected as the “Publications Vice-Chair" of the Defense Research Institute (DRI) Diversity Committee. The goal of the committee is to advance and promote one of DRI’s core values: diversity in the legal profession, a cause close to Muliha’s heart.

Muliha graduated from Colorado College with a Bachelor of Arts in History, Cum Laude and with Distinction. She earned her J.D. from the University of Denver where she was the Candidacy Editor for the Denver Journal of International Law and Policy. Muliha also participated in the Civil Litigation Clinic and moot court, placing first in the Client Counseling competition.  Muliha was recently honored by being named a Colorado Rising Star by Super Lawyers.

Muliha’s work and life experiences span four continents and she has lived significant portions of her life in the U.K., Libya, and Bangladesh. When Muliha is not in the process of obtaining defense verdicts, she enjoys traveling (beach destinations are her favorite), sampling Denver’s busy brunch scene, and nursing her keen karaoke addiction (some might say talent) whenever possible.
