Judge Sean Connelly To Return To Reilly Pozner To Open Firm’s New D.C. Office

DENVER - Attorneys Dan Reilly and Larry Pozner of the Denver-based national litigation firm Reilly Pozner LLP have announced that their former partner, Sean Connelly, will be returning to the firm in January 2011 after having served more than two years on the Colorado Court of Appeals.

Judge Connelly, who hails from the East Coast and was formerly a federal prosecutor with the Department of Justice in Washington, D.C., will split his professional time between the firm's headquarters in Denver and the firm's new office in the nation's capital. Connelly's practice will focus upon federal civil and criminal appeals, complex civil litigation and while collar criminal matters.

Connelly originally came to Colorado from D.C. at the request of then U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno as a key member of the Oklahoma City bombing prosecution trial team. As a critical member of the trial team, he argued key legal motions and led the appellate team in those successful prosecutions.

Connelly has argued appeals in all but one of the regional federal circuit courts of appeals, more than 100 arguments in total. His appellate arguments are renowned for being exquisitely prepared and for Connelly's lack of notes at the lectern.
