Alum of the Month
Alumni at the height of their careers
Ryan Lessmann ('04) - December 2016

Most litigators dream of joining the ranks as one of the best-rated practitioners in their field. It’s a reality for Ryan Lessmann (’04), the office managing principal of Jackson Lewis P.C. in Denver. Lessmann has been rated as one of the region’s top employment defense lawyers while also running the busy Denver office of Jackson Lewis. Despite the success of his practice, he stays humble as a leader, lawyer, and even Ironman triathlete.

While in school, she took on the commitment of traveling to Colorado Springs every Tuesday and Thursday, and she now travels to places like Rio and Sochi doing the work she loves.
