Emily Ellison is a Longmont attorney who specializes in family law. Emily focuses her career on assisting people involved in tough legal situations. Her goal is to use her legal career to create a positive impact on society. She does this by listening to her clients’ needs, understanding how to guide their case to meet those needs, and fighting to obtain results. A dedicated and curious law student, Emily graduated in the top 25% of her class from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law.
Emily’s academic success in law school landed her a dual judicial externship with Colorado Supreme Court Justice Brian D. Boatright and Jefferson County District Court Judge Christopher C. Zenisek. An inside perspective of the legal system gives Emily unique insight into how judges make decisions and write orders. Her experience taught her to effectively counsel clients to achieve the best possible outcome in their case. Sometimes that means advising clients to negotiate an out-of-court settlement and other times taking a case to trial.
In addition to an active law practice, Emily is active in the local legal community. She is a current board member of the Boulder County Bar Association. She also serves on the board of a local non-profit organization providing safe services for families.
