The Colorado Trial Lawyers Association has announced that Natalie Brown, a senior attorney at the law firm of Franklin D. Azar & Associates, will be the recipient of its lifetime achievement award at its spring dinner on May 10.
The Kenneth Norman Kripke Lifetime Achievement Award is the latest in a series of accolades for Brown, a veteran personal injury attorney who has served in several leadership positions for the CTLA and holds invitation-only memberships in the American Board of Trial Advocates and the American College of Trial Lawyers. (The ACTL inducts less than one percent of lawyers nationwide.)
Born and raised in Butte, Montana, Natalie graduated with honors from the University of Montana in 1982 and obtained her J.D. in 1986 from the University of Denver. In 1986 she was admitted to practice in Colorado federal and state courts. In 2010 Colorado Law Week named her as Editor’s Choice for Best Trial Lawyer in Colorado, and she has routinely been named among Colorado Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America for the past fifteen years.
Her colleagues at the Azar firm congratulate Natalie on this well-deserved recognition of her many achievements and are grateful for the inspiration she has provided over the years through her integrity and professionalism!
