Allison Derschang joined BAM as an Associate Attorney in September, 2021.
Prior to joining the firm, Allison was an associate at a business law firm in Centennial, Colorado where she practiced primarily as an employment law litigator, gaining trial experience in both state and federal courts.
Allison has represented employees who faced discrimination based on sex, pregnancy, race, religion, disability, national origin, and age. She also has experience representing employees on wage and non-competition issues.
While at law school at the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, Allison interned at plaintiff-side employment law firms and spent her final year of law school as a law clerk.
Allison was selected as a member of the D.U.’s highly-ranked National Trial Team which competed nationally in mock trial tournaments. Allison and her trial partner (BAM’s own Steven Visioli) were semi-finalists at the AAJ Regional tournament in 2016.
