Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 12, 2015
Arapahoe County District Court Judge Richard Caschette, Holland & Hart LLP Partner Dennis Brown, and Lorraine Parker with Parker Lipman, in association with the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), will discuss “Civility Matters” on Friday, Feb. 27, at the University of Denver (DU) Sturm College of Law.
ABOTA is an invitation only national association of experienced trial lawyers and judges with a minimum experience of 20 civil jury trials dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the civil jury trial right provided by the Seventh Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
ABOTA recently produced the new “Civility Matters” program in order to promote the standards of integrity, honor, ethics, civility, and courtesy in the legal profession. ABOTA is working with all of its local state chapters to present “Civility Matters” to other bar and professional programs and law schools across the country. The discussion will focus on the challenges of remaining civil in sometimes difficult legal situations.
Judge Richard Caschette is the immediate past president of the Colorado Chapter of ABOTA. After serving as a Denver Deputy District Attorney, Judge Caschette then spent more than 20 years in private practice as a trial lawyer handling matters involving complex business litigation, securities and health care fraud, professional malpractice, products liability, employment, and white collar criminal defense. He was appointed to the Colorado District Court bench in 2008 by Governor Ritter.
Dennis Brown is a past president of the Colorado Chapter of ABOTA. Brown started his career as a law clerk for Chief Justice Paul Hodges of the Colorado Supreme Court, then worked as a Jefferson County Deputy District Attorney before beginning civil practice. Brown is a frequent lecturer for continuing legal education programs covering general civil litigation, civil litigation damages, catastrophic injuries and product liability. He provides counsel to help his clients navigate complex litigation processes.
Lorraine Parker is a member of the Colorado Chapter of ABOTA. After graduating from the South Texas College of Law-Houston, Parker worked at the Harris County (Texas) District Attorney’s Office before moving to Colorado. Once in Colorado, Parker worked for years defending personal injury and malpractice actions but since 2004 her practice shifted to plaintiff’s personal injury and professional malpractice.
The “Civility Matters” discussion is at 12 p.m. in Law 170 at the DU Sturm College of Law building. Contact Student Affairs at 303-871-6184 for more information.
