Law Week Colorado Names WTO Associate Evan Stephenson a 2011 Up-and-Coming Lawyer
DENVER: Law Week Colorado selected Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell associate Evan Stephenson as one of nine up-and-coming lawyers for 2011. Lawyers practicing for five or fewer years were nominated by their professional colleagues. One of Evan's accomplishments that led to his selection included obtaining a favorable decision from the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit in favor of a pro bono client in a federal habeas corpus appeal that reinstated the client's habeas petition after the trial court had incorrectly dismissed it. Another accomplishment was his integral role on the trial teams that obtained favorable results for Fortune 500 insurance companies in four separate cases. Evan is a member of the Legal Advisory Board of the Colorado Civil Justice League and the Healthcare Committee of the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
