Each year, the CWBA is proud to honor all members of the Colorado judiciary at our Annual Judicial Reception, and honor specific judicial official(s) for their meaningful work with our Judicial Excellence Award.

The 2019 Judicial Reception was held March 5, 2019 at Davis Graham & Stubbs, LLP.

This year's Judicial Excellence honoree is Judge Terry Fox, Colorado Court of Appeals

Meet Our 2019 Judicial Excellence Honoree


Judge Terry Fox
Colorado Court of Appeals

Terry Fox sits on the Colorado Court of Appeals and is this year's Judicial Reception honoree. Before her 2010 judicial appointment, from 2004-2010, she served as an assistant U.S. Attorney in Colorado, working as trial counsel to federal agencies and specializing in environmental law, constitutional law, and other civil matters. Before joining the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Judge Fox was an attorney with the Colorado Attorney General’s Office in the Public Officials Unit and in the Litigation Section;
an associate with the law firm of Holland & Hart, where she practiced Environmental Law; and a clerk for Justice Craig Enoch on the Texas Supreme Court. 

Judge Fox has served as the Colorado Director and as District Director for the National Association of Women Judges (NAWJ) and is now a NAWJ member. Her community service includes membership and board service in the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association and the Colorado Women’s Bar Association. Judge Fox co-chaired the CWBA’s Judicial Committee for years. She previously served on Colorado Supreme Court’s Attorney Regulation Committee and the Board of Law Examiner’s Law Committee.
In collaboration with the Center for Legal Inclusiveness, Judge Fox is a member of the Judicial Dream Team’s efforts to diversify the bench. In 2002 she was selected as a Marshall Memorial Fellow which allowed her to travel with other emerging American leaders to Europe. Judge Fox earned an engineering degree from the Colorado School of Mines in 1989, her J.D. degree in 1993 in Houston, Texas and her L.L.M. degree from Duke School of Law. She graduated from Brighton High School in Brighton, Colorado.


The CWBA is grateful for the ongoing and generous financial support of Davis Graham & Stubbs for hosting and sponsoring this award’s presentation each year at the CWBA Annual Judicial Reception.
