“What I love about family law is guiding people through some of the toughest and most emotionally draining experiences of their lives with compassion and empathy and helping them get through the process as unscathed as possible. Court processes and procedures can be very overwhelming and confusing, so I really try to help my clients understand what to expect at every stage of their case and make sure that we are doing everything possible, within their budget, to help them achieve the outcomes they desire.”

Allison became an attorney to help others. Her passion for family law is palpable—she represents clients going through an exceptionally hard time in their lives, and thus, she leads every case with empathy, describing herself as a “helper by nature.” Allison’s background includes a number of domestic violence criminal cases, as well as divorces with and without children. Her tireless stance and attitude towards potential victims of violence frames much of her work, and she carefully prioritizes the welfare and safety of all parties involved in her cases, rather than focusing solely on “winning.” Pleasant, reasonable, and professional, Allison’s expertise helps families in Colorado make sense of and smoothly transition through their situation, regardless of how complex their circumstances might be.
Born in Texas, Allison’s childhood family moved to Colorado Springs for a few years, then moved to Atlanta, Georgia when she was 12. She lived in Georgia for 17 years, attending the University of Georgia in Athens, then the Georgia State University College of Law in Atlanta from 2005 to 2009. While studying there, she was awarded the Spring 2006 Excellence in Research, Writing, and Oral Advocacy Cali Award. Tired of traffic gridlocks, blistering heat, and humidity, Allison was ready to move back to Colorado after law school, where she took the Colorado Bar exam.
She loves to run outside, hike, and take her two dogs (an Australian cattle dog named Cheyenne, and a Maltese named Axel) to dog parks. She also enjoys spoiling her nieces and nephews when visiting family, crocheting, and reading.
