Thirty years ago, a peer-reviewed ranking of attorneys made its way into the legal community. A handful of Denver’s attorneys who landed on an early version of the list from Best Lawyers remain there today—including Roger P. Thomasch, Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr’s Denver office.

In a Q&A interview, Mr. Thomasch said it’s difficult to single out just one moment as a singular highlight of his career: “Taking the oath to be admitted to the bar. After that, there have been so many best moments that it would be difficult to pick just one.”

When asked, “Who has been your best mentor?” he said: “I am an enormous fan of reading or listening to presentations by accomplished trial lawyers and, whenever the opportunity presents itself, just talking with them about the trial of a case. To tell the truth, over the years, plenty of opposing counsel have ‘mentored’ me, much to my dismay.”
