Six of the Greatest: A Tribute to Outstanding Lawyers in Colorado History

This is the eighteenth year that The Colorado Lawyer has honored outstanding deceased attorneys in Colorado. These lawyers were chosen by the Colorado Bar Association Awards Committee from nominations and suggestions submitted by members of the Bar and others.

The Awards Committee, chaired by Miles Cortez, selected the following lawyers because, during their careers, they exemplified the high ideals of the legal profession; made significant contributions to the Bar Association; were of aid and assistance to other lawyers, particularly younger lawyers; were active in civic and community affairs; were instrumental in accomplishing some significant changes in the law; promoted public confidence in the legal profession; demonstrated confidence in the practice of law; and were otherwise notable in their careers.

The Awards Committee needs your assistance in identifying individuals who should be recognized each year. If you knew someone you believe to be eligible for inclusion in the "Six of the Greatest" feature, please send your nomination to the CBA Awards Committee in care of Diane Hartman, Colorado Bar Association,1900 Grant St., 9th Floor, Denver, CO 80203-4336, or call Diane Hartman, at (303) 824-5312 or (800) 332-6736.
