Katherine Yarger Named a Top Woman Lawyer by Law Week Colorado


Law Week Colorado selected Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell associate Katherine Yarger among 10 of the top women lawyers in Colorado.  In the June 11, 2012 issue, LWC introduced 10 women lawyers who, the publication says, "represent the full spectrum of Colorado's legal community: big law, small firm and public sector devotees. These women represent what is best about the profession...."

Yarger joined Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell in 2010, where she has contributed to significant litigation matters, including examining a witness in a major medical malpractice defense trial.  Before joining the firm, she served as a law clerk to The Honorable Neil M. Gorsuch of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit and to the Honorable Allison H. Eid of the Colorado Supreme Court.  After a two-year screening process, Yarger was selected by Justice Clarence Thomas of the United States Supreme Court as one of his four clerks for the 2013 session. 

Before law school, Yarger worked in Washington, D.C. as an executive assistant to The White House Office of Counsel to the President.  Yarger earned a bachelor's degree cum laude in 2004 from Dartmouth College and graduated with honors in 2008 from Duke University School of Law.
