Her compassion for and dedication to her clients is inspiring.”
Meghan Lutterman, a partner at Klauzer and Tremaine, also serves as the president of the Northwest Colorado Bar Association.
Meghan “has jumped in with both feet taking on Skype legal advice clinics, general advice for clients on a minute's notice, and has taken on an emergency case pro bono,” the release stated. “Meghan has gone above and beyond not only providing assistance to our clients, but in promoting the program.
