Rachel E. Ellis of Livelihood Law, LLC is an advocate for workplace fairness and the advancement of employee rights. Ms. Ellis provides counsel to private sector and federal government employees; representative matters include discrimination, retaliation, sexual harassment, unpaid commission and wages, contractual disputes, non-competition agreements, severance negotiations, and unemployment benefits. Additionally, she is fiercely devoted to legislative efforts that protect Colorado workers.

Ms. Ellis also helps people who can no longer work get the social security disability benefits they have earned. This process can be long and confusing, which is disheartening, but she helps clients through the process from application through appeals.
