Jill Gookin began her legal career in Denver, Colorado where she practiced in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury, employment discrimination, civil rights and contracts. Ms. Gookin was also the acting Public Defender in the City of Lakewood, Colorado where she represented indigent defendants charged with various crimes including but not limited to Domestic Violence, Assault, Harassment and Criminal Mischief.

Ms. Gookin’s background is heavily influenced by her experience with juvenile defense. Being community-minded, Ms. Gookin has served Weld County juveniles as a court appointed counsel for many years. In addition, she is also a Guardian Ad Litem for juveniles in Weld County.

With a desire to concentrate more on her juvenile practice and to help people in the community where she lives Ms. Gookin recently went back on her own re-opening Gookin Law, LLC in Loveland, CO in 2013. She practices all along the Front Range.
