Introduction: I have been practicing Criminal Law for the past 21 years, as both a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor (14 years) representing clients charged with both misdemeanors and felonies. I am a seasoned trial attorney who has tried every kind of case ranging from from minor traffic to 1st Degree Murder. I also spent a decade of my career teaching law enforcement and prosecutors. My knowledge of the other side has always been incredibly valuable to my clients. I fight for my clients and in every case I am pouring through the details to determine what factual and legal defenses may be available. Those years of experience matter and my goal is to always put my clients in the best landing position as possible. Communication is paramount. Getting charged with a crime is a scary experience and I pride myself on my communication with my clients. Thorough explanations and spelling out options is paramount to a client understanding what is happening to them and what directions to go.

Chris is an amazing attorney! I am very satisfied with the outcome of my case. I truly believe that he got me the best outcome considering my circumstances. His responsiveness throughout my case has helped with my anxiety throughout this journey. He even is answering questions and helping me after my case has closed and I couldn’t be more thankful for him. Highly recommend this attorney! You won’t be disappointed.

No one wants to be in a situation where you need to contact an attorney. But if you find yourself in such a situation, just as I did, you should give Chris a call. Chris was empathetic, professional, and knowledgeable. He explained every step of the legal process in a friendly and reassuring manner. He was very thorough, and clearly spent a lot of time carefully examining every aspect of my case. I genuinely believe that Chris provided me with the best legal defense possible, and I am extremely grateful. I had the best outcome possible for my case, and it’s thanks to Chris.

I appreciate you taking the time to speak with us today. It is easy to find Lawyers that can tell you what you want to hear but I found it very unique how honest you were. It was nice that you actually asked us questions and when we asked you something you were able to answer without hesitation. I look forward to speaking with you again soon! Thank you.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer flat fee pricing at very reasonable rates and payment plans. Especially now with Corona virus and social distancing, many people are suffering and don't have a lot of expendable money. When people's freedom is at stake, I try and work with them to come up with viable payment arrangements. Some attorney's offer flat fee arrangements that include motions and trial expenses. However, even if they resolve the case, they still keep all of the money. I offer two-tier pricing. A lower fee than the average attorney and if the case resolves in a plea bargain then that is all the client owes. If it is determined that there are viable legal or factual defenses then I have a second tier flat fee.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I stage an initial free intake interview, by phone or in person, and find out more details of what happened. This is the start of the process and potentially identifying both factual and legal defenses. I never promise clients an outcome and you should be suspicious of any lawyers who does. Once I have obtained discovery (all the evidence law enforcement has compiled and provided to the District Attorney's), I provide my client's with an assessment of the evidence and their best options.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been an attorney for 21 years. I was a prosecutor for 14 years. Eight years as a line Deputy District Attorney with the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. I have tried every kind of infraction, misdemeanor, juvenile and felony case - I have been to trial on everything from Dog Off Leash to First Degree Murder. I then moved on and spent six years with the Colorado District Attorney's Council where my primary job was to train Colorado law enforcement and prosecutors about DUIs and impaired driving. Through that experience developed an expertise in all aspect of DUI cases. Because of that experience I can read a police officers report and determine exactly what level of training they have received - not all cop are created equal. I have an exceptional amount of expertise when it comes to marijuana and drug impaired driving that is unique and distinct in the defense attorney community. I also have a lot of experience with scientific evidence. Whether it is toxicology, DNA, medical evidence or strangulation, I have an exceptional amount of knowledge, interest and depth of experience.
