Courtney Edwards graduated from the University of Wyoming College of Law in May of 2013, with honors, and is a member of the Order of the Coif. During law school she was an active member of the board for the student bar association, the Potter Law Club, and a member of Wyoming Law Students for Equal Justice.
After graduating, Courtney worked as a Deputy District Attorney in Eagle, Colorado, prosecuting traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases. During her time with the District Attorney’s Office, Courtney acted as the prosecutorial representative on the local Access to Justice Committee as well as the Recovery Courts (DUI Court and Drug Court) in Eagle County. Courtney joined Carlson & Carlson in 2017 and became partner of the firm in July of 2019 when the firm underwent a name change to Carlson, Edwards, and O'Connor.
Courtney has intimate knowledge and experience with the criminal justice system. She is a strong advocate for those finding themselves in the system and will provide guidance along the way. Courtney also holds strong beliefs that everyone should have equal access to justice through the courts. That means adequate assistance and representation in all types of cases, especially where family and children are involved. Courtney is committed to helping those in need by offering services to help in family law matters and estate planning.
Though Courtney may have grown up under the great blue skies of Wyoming, she is now proud to call the beautiful Eagle River Valley home and loves to explore all Colorado has to offer. When away from the office she enjoys camping, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and whitewater SUP with her husband, Jamie.
