Hello!! My name is Amelia and I am absolutely thrilled to be joining JLongtin Law. Jen has created an innovative firm with excellent attorneys and an exciting vision. I’m so honored to be a part of this incredible group of dedicated people.
I’ve spent the last three years as a public defender in Arapahoe County. I became a public defender because I truly believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty and that everyone deserves a quality defense, regardless of ability to pay. I’m excited to continue to work for all clients through the firm’s CARe Program and with Denver’s outreach court.
Practicing criminal defense with compassion is something I strive to do. I have seen how mental health issues have impacted my own friends and family, and the criminal justice system all too often either minimizes or ignores the reality of living with these concerns. I also know how frightening facing a criminal charge can be – sometimes just figuring out how to get to the courtroom can be overwhelming. I want to help all my clients feel as comfortable and at ease with the process as possible as we make decisions together.
In addition to being an attorney, I have an amazing husband, and two awesome kids. We love to cook, watch movies, hike, play board games, and explore the mountains. My personal hobby is ballet – I take adult classes and try to go to as many performances as I can. My husband and I are both Colorado natives, and we are lucky to have lots of family nearby that we also enjoy spending time with.
I look forward to getting to know you!
