Theresa Lynn Sidebotham founded Telios Law in 2012, where she advises organizations in the United States and internationally, with a focus on religious and nonprofit law, employment law, child safety, and investigations, including large historical investigations.
Telios Law advises on legal and policy issues, with an emphasis on First Amendment protections, international law, child protection policies and practices, and employment practices. It also coordinates legal audits and assists with investigations, including sexual harassment, child abuse, and other alleged misconduct investigations.
She also directs Telios Teaches, an affiliated company that provides training in sexual harassment, child protection, and other human resources issues.
Sidebotham graduated first in her class from the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. She was mentored by judges at the Colorado Court of Appeals and worked at a large law firm serving religious institutions and doing general litigation before opening her firm. Sidebotham grew up as a missionary kid, and also served as a missionary with her husband before returning to the US and attending law school.
