Courtney E. Butler

Courtney joined the firm in 2012.  Her practice areas include environmental law, land use counseling and litigation, civil litigation, and family law. 

Prior to joining the firm, Courtney served as a law clerk for Judge Gale Miller of the Colorado Court of Appeals.  At the end of that clerkship, Courtney’s sense of adventure and desire to explore the East Coast brought her to Vermont, where she accepted a one-year clerkship with the Environmental Division of the Vermont Superior Court.  

Courtney has a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Colorado-Boulder (high honors) and a J.D. from the University of Denver, where she graduated first in her class.  Because of her lifelong dedication to public service, Courtney received a full-tuition scholarship to attend the University of Denver.  While in law school, Courtney was a member of the University of Denver Law Review, President of the Spanish Speaking Lawyers Association, Co-Chair of the Chancellors Scholars, a volunteer interpreter for numerous immigration organizations, and a tutor and writing advisor for first year students.

In Courtney's free time, she enjoys long-distance running, hiking, camping, snowboarding, ultimate Frisbee, photography, international travel (most recently she traveled to Namibia), and finding opportunities to speak Spanish.
