Alyssa M. Little
Alyssa is originally from Parker, Colorado, where she graduated from Ponderosa High School. After high school, she attended Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development & Family Studies. After working on a project designed to help families in the legal system, Alyssa decided to become a lawyer and completed a legal internship in Dublin, Ireland. During this internship, she was able to travel throughout Ireland and Scotland, and later traveled through Spain and Italy. Alyssa went on to attend Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon. Alyssa was very active in Willamette’s Moot Court Board, and was selected to participate in regional trial competitions two years in a row. During law school, Alyssa clerked for the Clackamas County District Attorney’s Office in Oregon City, where she handled a full caseload of misdemeanors from intake through trial. This clerkship gave her an excellent understanding of many issues that families face when dealing with the legal system.
In her free time, Alyssa enjoys spending time outdoors in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, especially when her dog, Ruby, can come along.
