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 in Port Hueneme, a naval base located in California. I lived in different states throughout the United States before landing permanently in Whatcom County. I’ve made my home in Lynden for the past 25 years.
I graduated from high school in Houston, Texas, just before moving to Washington State with my family. I have attended Bellingham Technical College, Whatcom Community College and Charter College throughout the years. I have enjoyed studying a variety of different subjects and courses, before finally landing in the legal world as a paralegal.
I have been passionate about law for the past few years. I am excited to be working in a legal setting and furthering my skills in the legal field. Prior to launching my legal career, I was a Certified Nursing Assistant for 15-plus year, mainly focused on taking care of seniors in the privacy of their own homes. I still want to help people in some form and thought a career in the legal field would be a good choice. As a problem solver, I look forward to the challenges and dynamic environment the legal field offers.
Other Interests & Community Involvement
Though moving from one of the largest cities in the US to the small town of Lynden was a bit of a shock to my “big city” mind set, it didn’t take me long to grow to love our community. I love Whatcom County and its residents – where else can you connect with all your neighbors, only to find out how each of them are related in some way? The local community mindset of helping out your neighbors is like a breath of fresh air after being stuck a city for too long. I love living in Whatcom County, where I can take in the sunrise over the bay, have lunch on top of Artist Point, and enjoy dinner in B.C., Canada, all in the same day!
