Ms. Jones firmly believes that everyone should have equal access to justice, not just wealthy corporations or those in positions of power, and has dedicated her practice exclusively to representing individuals who have suffered violations of their civil rights, with an emphasis on discrimination and retaliation in the workplace.

Before attending law school, Ms. Jones handled civil rights and plaintiff-side employment litigation matters for over eight years as a paralegal. In 2008, she was a co-finalist for the prestigious Colorado Trial Lawyers Association’s Case of the Year Award for her work in the matter of Estate of Emily Rice v. City & County of Denver & Denver Department of Health & Hospitals. During law school, Ms. Jones competed in Rothgerber Moot Court and was one of the top 15% of students hand-selected by law school faculty to compete in the 1L Oral Advocacy Competition.
Prior to joining King & Greisen, Ms. Jones clerked with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission where she litigated individual and systemic employment discrimination matters on behalf of the Commission. In addition, she was an Equal Opportunity Specialist with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Office for Civil Rights responsible for investigating complaints of civil rights violations, including race, national origin, disability, age, and sex discrimination, as well as complaints of HIPAA violations.
