Colorado Plaintiffs' Lawyers Honor Defense Lawyer Michael O'Donnell
DENVER: The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association presented Michael O’Donnell, chairman of the civil litigation defense firm Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell LLP, with an award for "the highest standards of competency, ethics and professionalism." This is only the seventh time in its 55-year history that the CTLA, whose members are plaintiffs’ attorneys, has given this award to a defense lawyer. Mr. O’Donnell said, "I am honored to be recognized by my professional colleagues who I usually only see on the other side of the courtroom."
Mr. O'Donnell is listed in The Best Lawyers in America in four litigation categories, was voted one of the top ten lawyers in Colorado in 2007 by Colorado Super Lawyers, and is Chairman-Elect of the Colorado section of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers.
