On April 10, lawyers in Gunnison County met for the annual Karl Ranous Professionalism Award dinner. Every year, the bar association gathers to honor a local lawyer who exemplifies the values and practices of professionalism. This year, the Gunnison County Bar Association honored Hon. J. Steven Patrick, the Chief Judge of Colorado’s 7th Judicial District. Judge Patrick sets the tone and a high standard for lawyers practicing in the 7th Judicial District. This is a well-deserved recognition of the professionalism displayed in Colorado courts.
We also heard a presentation from Jim Coyle, head of Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel and Barbara Eyzk , Executive Director of the Colorado Lawyer's Assistance Program.
