McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP, a Denver-based criminal defense firm, has elected to give their annual holiday donations to the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law and University of Colorado Law School in lieu of corporate gift-giving this year. Their hope for these donations is to support attorneys planning to go into public service working as public defenders, both at the Colorado state and federal level.
As former public defenders themselves, the attorneys at McDermott Stuart & Ward LLP understand firsthand how demanding public legal service can be.
