Elissa Harshman


Elissa Harshman has devoted her career to helping injury victims take on powerful insurance companies and special interests. A personal injury attorney at our office in Denver, Colorado, she focuses her practice on cases involving motor vehicle accidents, defective products, dog bites, premises liability, and more.

What sets Elissa apart is her ability to be a tenacious champion for her clients while also possessing a kind, compassionate, and understanding nature. She believes that anyone can recover from great setbacks with the right advocate in their corner, and she uses her aggressive drive and remarkable empathy to help her clients achieve the best possible results.

Elissa graduated cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Arizona and subsequently enrolled in the school’s James E. Rogers College of Law, where she earned her juris doctorate.

While in law school, Elissa distinguished herself as a writer and editor for the Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law, as well as through leadership positions in the Law Women’s Association, the Sports and Entertainment Law Society, and the Volunteer Lawyers Program, which recognized her as an Outstanding Student Volunteer.

Before becoming an attorney at Zinda Law Group, Elissa gained valuable experience as a legal intern for the Denver District Attorney’s Office, as a judicial extern for the United States District Court for the District of Arizona, and as a law clerk at the Pima County Attorney’s Office and at a law firm in Tucson, which also happens to be her hometown.

Elissa has benefited the legal industry through her involvement with the Colorado Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, the Denver Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, and the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association.

Elissa likes spending quality time with her husband, and in her leisure hours, she enjoys traveling, visiting the beach, and spending time with her three dogs.
