Erin Young

Senior Attorney

“Thank you Erin Young and her team for helping me get through this challenging time. You were always professional and treated me with respect and dignity at a time when I was at my most vulnerable. I appreciate all you did for me in my case. Your attention to detail and concern for my best interests, makes it easy for me to recommend you to anyone going through a divorce.”

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 lawsuits 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.

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 a Litigation Associate at a preeminent 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.

She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Spanish from the University of Colorado and her law degree from Florida State University.

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.
