Diversity at Messner Reeves

At Messner Reeves, we value each person for their unique perspective and background, embracing anyone who is willing to work hard. Diversity strengthens our firm and results in more innovative solutions for our clients. We have long recognized that attracting and promoting diverse attorneys through mentoring, business development training and client service opportunities creates a culture where all can flourish.

Our Pledge to Diversity

Messner Reeves participates annually in the Colorado Pledge to Diversity. While most law firms only provide internships to second-year law students, the Pledge to Diversity Program affords first-year law students of diverse racial, gender and ethnic identifications the opportunity to participate in a paid summer internship with Messner Reeves. As a result, Messner Reeves hires program participants annually.

Our Culture

With Messner Reeves, what you see
is what you get.

We don’t rely on smoke and mirrors, or expensive artwork and granite countertops, to impress clients; rather, we have and always will focus on providing the highest quality legal work at a fair rate. Messner Reeves was founded in 1995 by Bryant “Corky” Messner who had the vision to create an entrepreneurial law firm that empowered attorneys to take control of their careers and become leaders in their communities.

Unstuffy. Highly motivated. Focused on the client. We believe that the driving force behind our culture is this entrepreneurial spirit, coupled with our business-friendly approach. From the moment you step into any of our office locations, decorated with artwork created by the children of our clients and employees, you realize we are not your typical law firm. You won’t find bureaucracy, politics, committees or unnecessary meetings in stuffy boardrooms. You will see a collaborative, energetic group of highly skilled professionals dressed comfortably and working hard to create common-sense solutions to complex problems. Our culture allows our attorneys, firm professionals and legal staff to stay on top of our clients’ needs and provide them with the resources required to meet their business objectives.
