City Council appoints new city attorney


COMMERCE CITY, COLO. (Sept. 19, 2016) – City council appointed Robert Sheesley, Esq. to the position of city attorney during the city council meeting on Monday. Sheesley’s appointment comes after a competitive search process concluded last month. He has been serving as interim city attorney since April 2016 when the longtime city attorney retired after more than 48 years.

In this position, Sheesley will serve as the primary legal counsel to city council, boards and commissions, city management and departments regarding all municipal legal and policy issues.

“I’m honored to be appointed as the city attorney and humbly accept the responsibility to serve city council and the city,” said Sheesley. “There are a lot of exciting things happening all over Commerce City, and I look forward to working alongside council and staff for the betterment of the community.”

Sheesley has served as an attorney for more than 11 years working in the public and private sectors developing a breadth of experience related to employment, business and banking, government contracts, and labor law. A graduate of Loyola University New Orleans and the University of Florida College of Law, he began his career in Florida representing employers in labor and employment litigation matters. He then joined the national law firm of McGlinchey Stafford in Louisiana, where he focused on complex commercial litigation and government contracts matters. Before moving to Colorado, he served as the assistant city attorney for the City of New Orleans. Sheesley has served the City of Commerce City since October 2014 as its senior assistant city attorney.

In his spare time, Sheesley enjoys exploring Colorado and the West and golfing at Commerce City’s Buffalo Run Golf Course.
