ROBERT C. JAROSH ADMITTED TO AMERICAN COLLEGE OF TRIAL LAWYERS
Cheyenne, Wyoming, March 12, 2020 – Cheyenne attorney Robert C. Jarosh has become a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the premier legal associations in North America. The special induction ceremony at which Jarosh became a Fellow took place in Tucson, Arizona, March 7. Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only, and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship. Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice. Jarosh is a partner in the firm of Hirst Applegate, LLP, and has been practicing in Cheyenne since returning from practicing law in Denver in 2003. Jarosh is an alumnus of the University of Wyoming College of Law.
