    Rachel Eliis is one of the hardest hitting lawyers in the Colorado legal community. I have known Rachel since our days in law school. She is a top employment lawyer. When I have calls asking for a referral for employment discrimination cases, she is the only person I have confidence recommending.

    I've had the privilege of working with Rachel for several years on a professional committee, and her enthusiasm and commitment are contagious. I have also referred clients to her and consulted with her on separate matters. I highly respect her skill and recommend her to anyone.
