Emily Rose Mowrey
I am a proud graduate of Geneva Elementary School, Kulshan Middle School, Bellingham High School and Whatcom Community College, as well as Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington and the Washington State Law Clerk Program in Seattle.
Before becoming an attorney, I worked in a church daycare; at Taco Bell (only for one day, ask me about it sometime); as a librarian at the Bellingham and Fairhaven Public Libraries and as an office administrator. In 2007, I was hired as a paralegal at the law firm of Britain, Gallery & Vis in Bellingham. Over my seven-year tenure at BGV, I not only learned everything I know about estate, business and bankruptcy law but also earned my law degree and passed the Bar Exam to become an attorney. I launched Limitless Law PLLC in 2014.
Even when I’m not helping my clients solve their legal problems before they start, I stay busy! I’ve been an adjunct professor of business law since 2016. I also love playing rugby and roller derby, lifting weights and spending time with my wife, Katherine, and our pit-bull-Corgi mix, Nellie.
It’s important to me to give back to my community, which has given so much to me. I am honored to serve on the Board of the Washington State Law Clerk Program, the law school that I graduated from. I have also served on the non-profit Board of my roller derby league, the Bellingham Roller Betties. My firm proudly sponsors both the Chuckanut Bay Rugby Club and the Bellingham Roller Betties. Limitless Law has also been involved in Bellingham’s Pride Festival every year since 2014, and we sponsored the York Neighborhood Yard Crawl in 2018 and 2019.
I was born and raised in Olympia, Washington before moving to Bellingham to attend Western Washington University. I studied psychology and sociology at WWU before moving on to Willamette University Law School in Salem, Oregon where I graduated with a juris doctorate.
I have been learning about law and working in a legal setting for the last five years. Before joining Limitless Law in January 2017, I worked with the Attorney General’s Office in Olympia and the Oregon State Tax Court. Before entering the legal field, I held jobs in a jewelry store, blood bank, and as a teaching assistant.
I truly love Bellingham’s community and its values of crafting, sustainability, and connection to the outdoors. You may often come across me and my husband, Kevin, hiking around Lake Padden or enjoying the arboretum trails. I enjoy knitting and cooking because I like to give myself a technical challenge where I can enjoy the outcome. Our cat Khoshekh has been kind enough not to attack too many of my knitting projects. We are also regulars at the local board game pubs around Bellingham. I ended up choosing to work in the legal field because I enjoy problem solving. I am an avid strategy gamer, and Sudoku fan. Traveling is also something I enjoy, I have been on three continents and twelve states with my farthest travel so far being to China a few years ago.
