November 29, 2018 Firm News

Denver Litigation Partner Meshach Rhoades has been selected to receive the University of Colorado Law School’s Dean Edward C. King “Making a Difference” award.

In its 38th year, the Colorado Law Alumni Awards program recognizes distinguished alumni and friends for their contributions to the legal profession, service to their communities, and dedication to the law school. The “Making a Difference” award recognizes alumni who demonstrate the sort of passion and commitment to the legal profession and the people it serves as did Edward C. King, dean of Colorado Law from 1940-1962. Dean King was known as a pragmatic person with the intellectual courage to do right, even when that was challenging.

Rhoades, who serves as co-chair of Armstrong Teasdale’s Inclusion Committee, will be honored among six other alumni and friends of the law school at the annual awards banquet on Thursday, March 14, 2019, at Broncos Stadium at Mile High in Denver.

In addition, Rhoades is co-chair of the firm’s Agribusiness and Food industry team. She demonstrates an ongoing commitment to diversity through her own involvement with local and national organizations, including the Center for Legal Inclusiveness, Colorado Legal Services, Leadership Council on Legal Diversity, American Heart Association, American Civil Liberties Union and Colorado Hispanic Bar Association. Rhoades is also co-founder of the Latinas First Foundation, which honors unsung heroines and trailblazers in the Colorado Latina community, builds community for Hispanic women, awards scholarships to collegiate and postgraduate students, and trains women on career progression. She is a past member of the Colorado Law Alumni Board, where she participated in the Alumni Mentoring Program.
