Griffiths Law enabled me to find my passion and turn it into my life long career.
LONE TREE, Colo. (PRWEB) December 29, 2020
Griffiths Law PC, a family law and civil litigation firm dedicated to protecting the futures of all Colorado families, today announces Eliza Steinberg and Leslie Hansen will become the firm’s newest shareholders.
“As President of Griffiths Law, I am excited to welcome Eliza Steinberg, as a new shareholder of our firm.” said Suzanne Griffiths. “She is one of the most brilliant and talented attorneys I have worked with. I personally mentored Eliza as she started her career as my paralegal in 2011, then attended law school at night, and has become a dedicated and experienced attorney. She continues to impress me and her fellow attorneys with her management and legal skills and we are excited to see her grow with the firm.”
During her time as a paralegal with Griffiths Law, Eliza discovered her passion for helping people going through divorce and custody disputes. She worked her way through law school at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law while working full time at Griffiths Law. She has been an Associate Attorney at Griffiths Law for three years.
Eliza was named one of Law Week Colorado’s “Up and Coming Lawyers” in 2019. She has been named as one of SuperLawyers “Rising Stars” two years running and most recently was added to Best Lawyers in America “One’s to Watch” for 2021. Her practice is focused exclusively on family law related matters including divorce, allocation of parental rights, post-decree disputes, and child support matters.
“Griffiths Law enabled me to find my passion and turn it into my life long career,” said Eliza. “I am eternally grateful for the mentorship and training I received for the last ten years and continue to receive by being a part of the Griffiths Law team. I am excited to start a new chapter as part of the leadership at Griffiths Law and to use my experience to help promote a passionate and successful workplace.”
Eliza is a board member for the Colorado Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division Executive Council. She is active in the community, serving as a volunteer attorney with ALIGHT (Alliance to Lead Impact in Global Human Trafficking) and a committee volunteer for the Colorado Judicial Institute. Eliza continues the firm’s dedication to mentoring young women in the legal profession by working with the University of Denver Sturm College of Law Professional Mentoring Program. Much like Suzanne Griffiths mentored her, Eliza also mentors paralegals and junior associates advance in their careers.
Congratulations to Eliza Steinberg, Griffiths Law’s newest shareholder!
“Leslie Hansen is an outstanding attorney who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our firm.” said Suzanne Griffiths, Co-Founder of Griffiths Law. “She has dedicated countless hours to the firm and we are honored to welcome her as one of our newest Shareholders. Leslie’s background makes her a frontrunner inside and outside of the courtroom. Her expertise is what our firm represents and she provides constant mentoring to the attorneys in the firm.”
Leslie has over 17 years’ experience as a district attorney and worked in two different district attorney’s offices both as a Deputy District Attorney and as the Assistant District Attorney. In that role she handled hundreds of criminal cases and conducted dozens of jury trials, including ten first degree murder trials. She has since transitioned into the world of family law, but her strong background in litigation continues to serve her and her clients. When litigation is necessary, Leslie has the experience and the skill set to prepare for trial and effectively advocate for her clients.
Leslie’s excellent work as an attorney has earned her recognition in the legal field. For three years in a row, Leslie has been named a Colorado SuperLawyer, an honor given to attorneys who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. She has additionally been recognized by Best Lawyers in America for four years running.
“I am honored to be asked to become a shareholder with Griffiths Law and consider it to be a significant accomplishment for my career,” Leslie said. “I look forward to contributing to the growth of the firm as well as the standard of excellence exemplified day in and day out by the firm and my fellow colleagues.”
Outside of her work with Griffiths Law, Leslie serves as a Board Member for Voices of Victims in Denver, Colorado. In this role, Leslie uses her deep knowledge of criminal and family law to help crime victims and their families. Leslie’s immense compassion drives her to continually look for ways to help those in need of advocacy.
