Jill Coil Named 2014 Colorado Pro Bono Paralegal of the Year

April 08, 2014 // Franchising.com // Boulder - Jill Coil, a paralegal in Faegre Baker Daniels' business litigation practice, has been named the 2014 Pro Bono Paralegal of the Year by the Colorado Bar Association Paralegal Committee and the Rocky Mountain Paralegal Association.

Coil was nominated by the firm for her outstanding work and support in the case of Ryals v. City of Englewood, in which the ACLU of Colorado challenged a municipal ordinance that had the effect of banning any registered sex offender from living anywhere within the city.

Coil was an integral part of the pro bono trial team, which worked in cooperation with the ACLU of Colorado on this constitutional challenge. The team secured a significant victory after a four-day bench trial, and the ordinance at issue was found to be unconstitutional under the Colorado Constitution because it is preempted by Colorado state law governing the treatment, rehabilitation and supervision of convicted sex offenders.

Jennifer Sullivan, business litigation counsel and member of the trial team, said, "Jill provided outstanding service to the trial team in Ryals. She brought to the team not only her skills and spirit, but also a willingness to consider the case through a fresh lens, unfettered by prejudice."

Coil was recognized on April 4 at the annual Colorado Supreme Court Pro Bono Recognition Ceremony. She will also be honored by the two professional paralegal organizations at Paralegal Day on May 1.

Coil, a graduate of Western Michigan University, has been with the firm since 2007. She received her paralegal certification from Oakland Community College.
