Frank McNulty Featured in Law Week Colorado

Former Colorado State Representative, Speaker of the Colorado House and Spencer Fane attorney Frank McNulty was featured in a recent issue of Law Week Colorado in an article that detailed his journey from public office and part-time lawyer to full time private practice. The article, titled “McNulty, From Legislating to Lawyering,” outlines McNulty’s path to and from politics starting with his work for Sen. Wayne Allard in Washington, D.C., after graduating from the University of Colorado in 1995. McNulty worked for the Fort Collins Republican for a number of years before returning to Colorado and obtaining his law degree from University of Denver College of Law. After his years on the East Coast, McNulty had built up an appreciation for his home state’s emphasis on water and the environment, which motivated him to hone his focus on environmental law. While practicing environmental law McNulty held a number of positions with the Colorado Department of Natural Resources and the close tie between those roles and the political world propelled him to run for office. “I didn’t intend to run for office when I did,” McNulty said. “But things came together in 2006 for me to launch a run for state House, and I was fortunate enough to be elected and had a wild ride at the legislature building a majority then watching the Democrats swipe it away in 2012.” McNulty continued on to share his proudest accomplishments as a legislator as well as how he uses his political knowledge in his practice today. He is now in a full time role at Spencer Fane after completing his time on the state legislature earlier this year due to term limits. To read more of McNulty’s story view the full article here.
