Todd Fredrickson Receives Davis Award

Todd and Jennifer Fredrickson and Todd’s
parents Sylvia and Wayne Gardner.

The 2003 recipient of the Richard Marden Davis Award is Todd A. Fredrickson, a partner at Otten Johnson Robinson Neff & Ragonetti.

The award is presented annually by Davis Graham & Stubbs, the Denver Bar Foundation and the Davis family to " . . . a Denver lawyer under the age of 40, who has combined excellence as a lawyer with creative, civic, cultural, educational and charitable leadership in the tradition of Richard Marden Davis at that stage in his career."

Fredrickson has contributed many volunteer and leadership hours to both the legal community and the wider community. As highly respected president of the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association in 1999, and continuing as director and committee chair, he has headed up law school, high school, middle and elementary school mentoring and tutoring programs, and co-founded El Centro Bienestar, a community legal service clinic. He has taken the lead in promoting diversity in the legal profession, co-founding a minority clerkship program for first-year minority law students.

Richard Davis’ family and law firm, Davis Graham & Stubbs, established this award in 1992 to honor Davis’ belief that great lawyers should be professional and community leaders. For almost 50 years, Davis devoted himself to the profession and the community. He served as president of the Denver Bar Association in 1959, and he played key leadership roles in the Colorado Public Expenditures Council, the Museum of Natural History, the Colorado Association of Commerce and Industry, the Denver Rotary Club, the Denver Art Museum and other organizations.

Last year’s recipient of the Richard Marden Davis Award was attorney Christopher B. Little.
