I highly recommend them to any person going through a divorce or who need help with a family law matter.””The support staff is efficient, thorough and friendly.

Erin Young was born in Michigan but has spent the majority of her life in Colorado. Admitted to the bar in 2004, she has handled hundreds of cases ranging from criminal prosecutions to product liability law suits to family law matters. In addition to all state courts in Colorado, Erin is admitted to practice in the US District Court for the District of Colorado. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Spanish from the University of Colorado and her law degree from Florida State University.
In part because of her extensive background, Erin Young understands that every family law case is unique and needs to be handled as such. With nearly 10 years of civil litigation experience prior to entering our practice, Erin was recently was a Litigation Associate at a pre-eminent 17th Street law firm in Denver. There she defended a variety of demanding lawsuits and developed extensive deposition and trial experience. During this time, she also provided pro bono legal representation through The Gathering Place which is a non-profit in Denver, CO that acts as a community safety place for at-risk women, children, and transgender individuals.
She was able to use this time to aid a monthly legal clinic and help change the lives of those in need within our Centennial community. Erin has continually made it her mission to improve the lives of others, a commitment she demonstrated while working pro bono at the Rocky Mountain Victim Law Center. As a Deputy District Attorney, she represented the rights of victims in domestic violence cases. Since she began her work in family law, Erin has always made it her mission to be completely honest with her clients about their cases so they can weigh their options and make the best choices for themselves. She ensures that clients know the process every step of the way and explains everything clearly and concisely.
What you may not know: Erin loves to enjoy the Colorado outdoors and, when she is not at work, you may find her running or hiking.

The firm is professional, positive and grounded in their approach. Everyone in the office is always willing to help and is extremely flexible, which I can say is valued by a working professional. There has always been open and prompt communication. Hannah ultimately won our case, and she did so by having strong intellect, presentation skills, and a genuine interest in the well-being of both my daughter and I. I will continue to value the relationship and expertise long after the issues are resolved.
April is well prepared and understands the law and court processes and procedures well beyond anything I have experienced, ensuring success.
