Attorney Profile

Stephen Longo completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California - Los Angeles (UCLA) where he graudated in the College Honors Program in 2008. He immediately started law school at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles where he graduated in 2011 with a concentration in Civil Litigation.

While in Los Angeles, Longo started his career by taking an internship at The Law Offices of Geragos & Geragos believing he would be working on high profile celebrity and criminal cases. Instead, he was assigned to the [now] Honorable Shelley Kaufman working in the firm's civil litigation department. He then moved on to a five year tenure at Girardi | Keese - one of the best and most respected law firms in the country. There, he cut his teeth in catastrophic injury, toxic tort, and wrongful death cases working with and learning from some of the best attorneys in the country before moving to Colorado in 2012. 

Longo picked up right where he left off in Los Angeles. At the age of 26, Stephen Longo was lead counsel on a catastrophic ​​trucking accident which resulted in a $3,850,000.00 recovery for his client. He was immediately recognized by the Million-Dollar and Multi-Million Dollar Advocate Forums - the latter of which has only 36 members in Colorado. At the age of 30, Longo became a managing supervisor for the personal injury department of a major television advertising law firm in Colorado. During this time, he was recognized by The National Trial Lawyers, SuperLawyers, Avvo.com, Best Lawyers in America, and America's Top Litigators, amongst others.​

He is currently licensed to practice in Colorado, California and the District of Columbia. He is an active EAGLE Member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association and American Association for Justice.
