Background

     LynMarie Liberty-Ellington is the owner of Liberty-Ellington Law and Mediation. LynMarie provides business consulting services, mediation services, and legal services. As a life-long business owner, she started her first business at 18, LynMarie thrives on helping business owners start, build, and grow their enterprises.

Originally from Toledo, Ohio, LynMarie was a military brat grew up traveling the globe from Cannon AFB, Clovis, NM, to Clark AFB, Philippines, and then Kirkland AFB, Albuquerque, NM. After joining the Air Force, LynMarie was assigned to the Communications Squadron, Space Command, Vandenberg AFB, in Lompoc, CA.

     LynMarie started her first business as a means to eventually go to law school. In those days, law schools didn’t offer part-time, or flexible schedules. LynMarie looked at business ownership as a way to make a living while attending full-time law school.

As a youth, LynMarie always wanted to be a business owner and a lawyer. LynMarie continued her education until taking the plunge and applying to law school. Originally, LynMarie wanted to be a divorce attorney, but years of doing business and working with other business owners opened her eyes to the struggles of entrepreneurs and the devastation a small business can be in when faced with legal turmoil.

     “Many people open businesses because they want to make money with their passion, but they fail to see the ramifications of not following the rules. It’s not usually because they want to defy the rules, but they simply don’t know what the rules are or didn’t know the rule applied to them,” says Ms. Liberty-Ellington.

     As a small business owner herself, LynMarie, is able to practice the legal areas she desires, while still helping and promoting success in business.

     “If it touches the lives of the people in our community, I want to help. And if I don’t have the answers to your problems, I will help you find the right person.” LynMarie continues, “Our community will continue to grow and become more successful with the work and efforts of the people we see and talk to every day.”

     “As a business owner, I was able to make money. Throughout the years, I’ve sold businesses, even given away businesses, but I felt I needed to complete my legal education in order to truly help.”
