West Colfax Avenue, Suite 800Denver, Colorado 80202Re: Application
of
Patrick
T.
O'Rourke
for appointment to the Supreme CourtDear
Chief
Justice Bender and Members
of
the Nominating Commission:I offer this letter in support
of
Patrick
T.
O'Rourke's
application for appointment to theColorado Supreme Court.I first
met
Pat in 1995
when
he worked as a litigation attorney at Montgomery Little
&
McGrew.
We
handled many cases together as co-counsel primarily in defense
of
health carerelated claims. Pat was an excellent trial attorney, even during the beginning
of
his career.
He
also began to develop a leadership role as an appellate attorney among health care attorneys
with
his writing abilities and skill
in
appellate advocacy. I served with him through bar associationactivities and he was one
of
the original members
of
the intensive Colorado Bar AssociationLeadership Training Program. He has been active
in
providing help and input to

programs
when
I was the Denver Bar Association President and as President-elect
of
theColorado
Bar
Association.He is considered
to
be
one
of
the top appellate lawyers in the state. He was a lead attorneyon many
of
the most important cases involving health care law, civil rights and public entities.Within the practicing bar he is referred to as one
of
our most gifted
brief
writers and is able
to
grasp the essential issues
of
a problem very quickly. His writing is clear and concise.
His
excellent trial abilities were again confirmed
in
his handling
of
the difficult Professor Churchilllitigation.He contributes to the legal literature
on
a wide variety
of
topics and has done so throughouthis career.
Many
of
his writings include analyses
of
complicated policy issues, but he is alsoknown for providing clear, straightforward articles which provide concrete guidance to attorneys,physicians, educators and administrators.Pat has a similar style
in
his teaching as he does in his writing. I have watched
him
givelectures in various settings.
He
gives
of
his time and teaches in
law
schools, at conferences andin bar association gatherings. He has the ability to break down complicated issues into
