June A. Torres

Attorney & Counselor at Law

June is a native of Arizona and is a recent graduate of the University of Colorado Law School.   She attended Arizona State University on a full ride Regents High Honors scholarship where she received a BA Magna Cum Laude from ASU.   As an undergraduate at ASU she majored in Justice Studies with a minor in French.  June is multilingual and is fluent in Spanish and French and can read and write proficiently in both languages.

During her undergraduate years at ASU she worked full time as a paralegal at the personal injury law office of Severiano Rodarte, where she managed cases, prepared documents and communicated with clients and providers.  June spent time during her sophomore year at ASU studying abroad at the Universite’ Catholique de Lille in Lille France. During her studies in France she was afforded the opportunity to travel extensively in Italy, France, the Czech Republic, and England.  June has said that she has particularly fond memories of eating too many savory crepe’s and chocolate croissants while at the University in Lille France and her most favorite city that she visited during her travels abroad was Prague.

While in law school June gained legal experience while working as an intern at a diverse group of entities.  Her internships include work as a Securities Law Intern and as a Legal Intern for an International Mining Company where she did research and drafted memoranda on complex legal issues related to environmental law, corporate governance, compliance and ethics for national and foreign operations, as well as assessing legal and political issues for international mine acquisitions.  While serving as a Legal Intern in the University of Colorado Office of University Counsel she researched and drafted internal memoranda on the impacts of Colorado law in areas of employment, discrimination, civil rights and labor rights.

June has indicated that one of her most interesting and challenging internships was serving as a Legal Intern for U.S. District Court Judge Christine Arguello where she was tasked with doing research, drafting decisions and orders on motions to dismiss and adopting magistrate reports and recommendations for criminal and civil law matters.

Active in both the Latino Law Student Association and the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association, she also served as a mentor for the Law School Yes We Can program as well as the CU Women’s Law Caucus.

June is the youngest of three sisters and has expressed that growing up and participating in the give and take of negotiating, competing and working with her siblings served her well as preparation for her success as a collegiate debater and more importantly as a future attorney.  She is someone who enjoys challenging herself both professionally and personally and as a transplant from Arizona she is now enthusiastically learning how to be a Colorado snowboarder.  When not working or participating in community service activities June likes to cook or put on her dancing shoes and go dancing.

Prior to becoming a Tschetter Sulzer attorney, June joined the team as the Firm’s Legal Assistant & Situation Manager while studying to take the Bar Exam.
