We just hired Randy Corporon. We were definitely impressed with the combined legal experience of Randy and his head criminal attorney Kevin. We look forward to having them help us through this difficult time. We feel fortunate to have them representing us.

I had a criminal.case.that I faced.serious charges. I retained Curt Alfrey as my attorney and his experience and efforts on my behalf obtained the best outcome to the criminal.case I could have obtained. He gave me a future beyond the criminal case based on his work on the case. It was the one of the most stressful times I have ever experienced and Curt stayed in constant communication by text and phone greatly relieving my stress and completely answering all of my concerns. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney in a criminal case and he will get the best possible resolution to your criminal case.

Our experience with Ms. Jennifer Watkins as a DUI/DWAI lawyer was exceptional. She is very professional and competent, willing to pursue all aspects of the law to assist her client. Ms. Watkins'strength, however, lies in her compassionate and down to earth nature; she is willing to listen to a client on the emotional and human levels. We highly recommend Ms. Watkins as an outstanding lawyer in any DUI/DWAI case. Thank you for helping make the best of a very difficult situation.

I thought all hope was lost after getting charged with a driving under the influence. How was I going to afford a lawyer? Everyone I talked to was asking for a large retainer. I found Mr. Forslund and he was everything I could have asked for in a lawyer. I'm sure all cases are different but he was able to get me a lower charge. Him and Gary made sure I knew all of my options and were extremely affordable. If they read this, I would like to say thank you and if anyone is ever looking for representation for DUI, these are your guys.

Michael Evans treated me like I was his own daughter! He was with me every step of the way. I knew from my initial contact with him, back in December of 2012, that he was the only lawyer for me. He was 100% honest with me from the start. I had a criminal case and he made sure to explain every possible outcome before I agreed on anything. He is passionate about his work and it shows. After a couple years I was sent back to court and he made sure that I took every step possible to get my case dismissed. He works fast and really does all he can to fight for his clients. He wants people to succeed. He helped me in more ways than I can write, and because of him I have changed my life, I am happy and successful. I highly recommend Michael Evans and the law firm to everyone because he truly cares!

Mitch Geller defended me in an agreement dispute with a real estate company in the early 90's. He was so much better than the other attorney it was embarrassing. He won the case for me, and always advised me to keep the case in perspective. The second case he won for me was a complaint that was filed by my HOA. He was, once again, amazing in court. To watch him perform on my behalf was seriously an honor. He didn't bother me with minutiae, as I am a "micro manager". He told me to trust him, and leave the details to him. He brought up issues that I would never have thought of. He was brilliant. We won the case, hands down. No contest.

Knowledgeable and very thorough. I felt like he understood my situation and cared about what happened to me. I was impressed that he had a medical background before becoming a lawyer. I hope to never need this type of service again, if I do, I would hire him again if possible.

Joe Lazzara saved me from a year in jail. I made a mistake and was facing my third DUI in Arapahoe County. Joe fought for me and I pled to a minor traffic offense, no jail. I have vowed never to make that same mistake of drinking and driving but I also want to promote Joe Lazzara, my attorney, the one that fought so hard for me. He is a great lawyer and I am proud to call him my attorney and now a friend.

In 2008 I was in the unfortunate position of needing the assistance of a criminal attorney. After visiting several attorneys, I met with Andrea Hall. She was the only attorney I met with that took the time to read the material associated with the criminal charges before giving me her expert opinion. Andrea Hall represented me throughout a jury hearing and I was purged of all charges. Andrea Hall is a true professional and expert in her field of practice. I would recommend her services to anyone in need.

I had 4 domestic violence charges against me which included a felony and 3 misdemeanors... all while going through a divorce. What a nightmare. I immediately wanted to hire the best, high priced, gray-haired lawyer I could find thinking they would be able to help me through this. Fortunately, I knew Jon and trusted him, so I asked his opinion. He assured me he had the experience and knowledge to handle my criminal case, so I hired him. With my job on the line due to the felony charge, it wasn't easy to put my livelihood in someone else's hands. I had to hire a separate lawyer for my divorce, so I found the most experienced, high-priced, gray-haired guy I could. In comparing the two attorneys, hiring Jon was the best money I could have spent. In fact, if it wasn't for his recommendation to take a paternity test (which the divorce attorney should have recommended), I would be paying my ex nearly half my salary in maintenance, alimony, and child support. Ultimately, all of the charges were reduced to a single deferred misdemeanor in a plea deal. After completing Jefferson County's Diversion program, all charges will be expunged and I will have a clean record once again. I could have spent at least three times as much on an old "experienced" lawyer, but in my experience, I received better service from Jon, with a great outcome, all at a much more reasonable price. Knowing what I know now, I wish Jon would have been available for the divorce case too.

About

I look at every case as though it's going to go to a trial. Too many people look to plead or settle cases, and this can lead to many problems. Many cases people plead guilty or settle cases that should have gone to a trial.

My work stands out compared to others because I possess the experience that allows me to determine if a certain case is a good candidate to take to trial or if the case should be settled by means of a plea agreement. I also have tried approximately 150 jury trials during my career and I am not intimidated by the prospect of a jury trial.

About

Mr. H. Michael Steinberg is a seasoned former senior trial district attorney. His thirteen-year career as a (DA) prosecuting attorney in the courtrooms of the Front Range of Colorado and the Denver metropolitan area (primarily Douglas and Arapahoe counties) has led to an exclusive law practice of criminal defense with a big emphasis on the trial phase of legal advocacy. Mr. Steinberg's more than 27 years of criminal law trial experience, along with an aggressive continuing legal education philosophy and a personal commitment to his clients, are combined to maintain a widely known and solid reputation for quality of service and professionalism. The Steinberg Colorado Criminal Defense Law Firm offers total litigation services in a hands-on, supportive environment. As a trial teacher and lawyer, Mr. Steinberg has this philosophy that is grounded in the concrete belief that the clients should be completely informed about every phase of their case as the case develops. He provides each of his clients with an education in the law (perhaps greater than they want to take!) while they receive complete coverage in every aspect of their case. Several criminal cases can be resolved through negotiations between a reasonable prosecutor and a seasoned criminal lawyer. However, not all cases can or should be settled in that manner. Experience in suppression hearings, pre-trial motion practice, and jury trials is crucial to the effective defense of a person who is charged with having committed a criminal act. Mr. Steinberg's excellence in the courtroom is the result of his years of courtroom and trial experience. He has successfully tried jury trials and presented all types of cases before some of the best-known and toughest judges in the Denver area. He has also handled criminal cases of virtually every conceivable variety, and he looks forward to each new case as a new challenge to succeed and deliver a good result for his clients.
