There is no greater professional honor than when peers recognize you for outstanding work. The Women Trial Lawyers Network recently featured a spotlight piece on Tomazin, Hillyard & Clor, LLP partner Penelope L. Clor.
The organization noted that because Pennie has a nursing degree and 26 years of experience as an attorney fighting for Colorado clients at trial and in negotiations in personal injury litigation, she understands not only clients’ pain and medical issues, but also how to deliver the compensation they need and deserve.
When asked to describe her best case, Attorney Clor’s response gives real insight into who she is: “It’s difficult to pick a best or most meaningful case,” she said. “All our cases are meaningful.”
She pointed out that trial lawyers are part of what is for many people who have been seriously injured because of someone else’s negligence, the most difficult time in their lives.
She remembered a particularly touching case in which a boy had suffered in birth a brain injury so severe that he “would never walk, talk or eat on his own.” Clor said “the strength of his family – especially his mother – was extraordinary. The love, caring and patience she gave to her child was truly unconditional.”
Clor said that getting to know the family made her both a better person and better attorney. “It was an honor to achieve a settlement that helped this family care for this child for his lifetime.”
She is proud to have helped clients receive six- and seven-figure verdicts and settlements that compensate them for medical bills past and future, lost wages, pain and suffering and more.
Tomazin, Hillyard & Clor, LLP is grateful to have Pennie as a leader and member of our team.
