Meggin Rutherford ’06 was named the 2020-2021 McPherson Young Lawyer of the Year by the Colorado Bar Association. In 2010, she began The Rutherford Law Center, which focuses on out-of-court solutions for clients in the areas of family law, elder law, probate, and estate planning. The McPherson Award is given annually to an attorney under the age of 37 who shows “an outstanding record of professional success, community service achievements, and a strong commitment to civic participation and inspiring others, whether within the legal profession or elsewhere.” Meggin is proud to keep divorcing families out of court through her efforts to help pass the Uniform Collaborative Law Act. She believes court is the worst place for family law cases due to the emotional harm and financial burden incurred. She also volunteers through her children’s school, Jefferson Unitarian Church, and Girl Scouts in her Arvada, Colorado, home.
