One of 25 top young professional winner for 2019

CAROLYN WITKUS, 36

PRESIDENT, GRIFFITHS LAW PC

Under Carolyn Witkus’ leadership, Griffiths Law has expanded its practice from family law to civil litigation as well. Witkus helped establish the Pathfinder’s Program, which mentors new and future lawyers and provides financial assistance for law school. She also is the shareholder primarily tasked with training the firm’s young associates. Witkus received the 2018 Colorado Women’s Bar Association Raising the Bar Award, which honors women who have “raised the bar” by elevating women and girls.

Witkus works with Bayaud Industries, an organization committed to assisting people with disabilities and other barriers to employment. Through Bayaud, Witkus launched the Enterprising Women Steering Committee, which focuses on providing assistance to women facing barriers to employment and economic self-sufficiency. “Carolyn’s most notable characteristic is her generous spirit,” says Witkus’ colleague, Elizabeth Bonanno. “While there are many intelligent attorneys, of which Carolyn is at the top, not all attorneys are willing to give the way that Carolyn does.”
