John A. Gellatly

Jack Gellatly is an associate at Luvera Law Firm, supporting case work across the firm’s personal injury practice areas.  

Gellatly joined Luvera Law Firm after earning his law degree from the University of California Berkeley School of Law. During his time there, he served as a summer associate in the Washington, D.C. office of a large national law firm, primarily supporting the commercial litigation practice. He also worked as an extern in the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.  

Additionally, Gellatly was actively involved with the student-led Political and Election Empowerment Project (PEEP), a pro bono public service organization geared towards voting rights, voting accessibility and democracy reform for historically marginalized and oppressed populations. He co-led the organization with his classmates and notes how eye opening the experience was, giving him an appreciation for the legal process when it comes to moving the needle on important issues. 

In the summer months between his undergraduate years, Gellatly gained a wealth of experience working in federal lawmakers’ offices, including interning for Congressman Adam Smith in his district office in Renton, Wash. He also interned for Senator Patty Murray in Washington, D.C., where he says his experience assisting with constituent correspondence helped expand his client relations skills. 

Gellatly completed his undergraduate education at Cornell University, where he played on the university’s Division I football team throughout his college career, serving as captain during his senior season.
