CiCi Cheng is an associate trial attorney at Wheeler Trigg O'Donnell LLP. She graduated from University of Colorado Law and, prior to practicing at WTO, CiCi was a commercial litigation associate at Holland & Hart LLP and served as a judicial law clerk to Judge R. Brooke Jackson at the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.
CiCi immigrated when she was nine years old to the U.S. from a little-known city of Hefei in China—and knew not a single word of English when she arrived. Since then, CiCi has immersed herself in the importance of diversity and inclusiveness in her new home of Denver and in her community here. She is extremely passionate about the Pledge Program as an alumna of the Program, through which she was matched with Holland & Hart as a 1L.
As Co-President of the Pledge, CiCi hopes to expand the Program and to further entrench the Denver legal community’s involvement with the Pledge. She truly believes that our legal community’s investment in the Pledge is crucial to creating the pipeline of talented, inspirational, and diverse lawyers that our city, state, and country need.
