ACLU of Colorado Attorneys Named Top Lawyers by 5280 Magazine

It’s with great pride that we recognize ACLU of Colorado Legal Director Mark Silverstein and Staff Attorney Rebecca T. Wallace who were recently named top lawyers in the field of civil rights by 5280 Magazine. The magazine chose 300 top lawyers in the Denver Metro Area in 46 specialties. Lawyers chosen for the list were selected by their peers using a combination of surveys sent out to thousands of Colorado attorneys and in-depth interviews conducted by the magazine. See the full list and read more about the selection process here.

Congratulations, Mark and Rebecca!
