WTO Leads Barrister's Best People's Choice Awards

Date: 10.16.17

Denver: Six Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell (WTO) attorneys are named People’s Choice award winners in Law Week Colorado’s 2017 edition of Barrister’s Best. No firm in the state—regardless of size or practice area—has more lawyers listed.

Law Week describes its annual awards issue as a listing of “the most prominent, highest performing, and well-established lawyers” in Colorado. The results are based on survey responses submitted by other Colorado lawyers and legal professionals.

“We believe that when it comes to finding the best lawyers, it takes one to know one,” the newspaper writes in its introduction to this year’s list. The People’s Choice awards reflect the high esteem of peers and colleagues in the legal industry.

“The reputation of our lawyers is our most important asset,” says WTO Chairman Michael O’Donnell. “We value and appreciate this recognition by our peers, and we strive to earn their respect all over again in the coming year.”

The six lawyers listed include:

  • Carolyn Fairless, Best Civil Litigator
  • Kevin Kuhn, Best Medical Malpractice Lawyer for Defendants
  • Michael O’Donnell, Best Overall Litigator
  • Katie Reilly, Best Antitrust Lawyer
  • Terence Ridley, Best Insurance Lawyer for Defendants
  • Michael Williams, Best Class Action/Mass Tort Lawyer for Defendants
