Patterson Earnhart Real Bird & Wilson LLP announced its recognition in the 5280 Magazine list of “Denver’s Top Lawyers 2022.” In the practice area of Native American Law, partners Francis Basset, Jeremy Patterson, Alvina Earnhart, and Thomasina Real Bird are among five hundred of the best attorneys in the region.

According to 5280 Magazine, the eighth-annual “Denver’s Top Lawyers 2022” listings are the best litigators, finest contract writers, and most reputable attorneys. To identify the most skilled attorneys around, 5280 Magazine coupled on-the-ground reporting with interviews of industry peers.

In addition to the 5280 listings, earlier this year, Native Law Group received a top-tier ranking in the U.S. News & World Report “Best Law Firms.” Three partners, Jeremy Patterson, Jeffrey Rasmussen, and Thomasina Real Bird earned the designation, all in the practice area of Native American Law.

In addition, senior associate Mitch Holditch was featured in the 2022 edition of “Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch.” He was also recognized in the practice area of Native American Law.
