John Walsh (Hill & Robbins)

John Walsh, the nominee to be the next Colorado U.S. Attorney, was honored by the Colorado Lawyers Committee at the group’s annual awards ceremony, Law Week Colorado reported.

Walsh received the award for Outstanding Sustained Contribution at the luncheon, held in Denver last week.

Walsh, a partner at Hill & Robbins PC, was nominated by President Barack Obama to head the Denver-based office on April 14. Obama’s first nominee, Stephanie Villafuerte, withdrew last year.

Law Week Colorado reported that Walsh received praise from colleagues in a video played during the event. James Scarboro of Arnold & Porter LLP called Walsh “the most relentlessly kindhearted and public-spirited lawyer I know in Denver.”  Bob Hill, a founding partner of Hill & Robbins PC, said, “He truly is most deserving of this award not only for his accomplishments, but for the way he went about achieving those accomplishments.”

In his acceptance speech, Walsh quoted former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis. “There is in most Americans some spark of idealism, which can be fanned into a flame,” Walsh said. “It takes sometimes a divining rod to find what it is; but when found…the results are often extraordinary.”

“Use this organization to find your own spark of idealism and put it to good use for the people of Colorado,” he added.
