Personal Message

As a Colorado Springs criminal defense lawyer, I’ve worked with hundreds of “defendants.”  Over the years, I began to realize that many of the defendants are actually very admirable people who had fallen on hard times, made a mistake, just didn’t have the right support to make it through a hard time.

In many cases, the person facing criminal charges was completely innocent.

The majority of these good Colorado Springs citizens had lives and futures and criminal charges became a heavy weight that stopped their progression. The stress, depression, and embarrassment that accompany criminal charges can be daunting.

Do not face a criminal charge on your own. Hiring an experienced Colorado Springs criminal defense lawyer can help alleviate the long-term effects that criminal charges affect like your employment, housing opportunities, and constitutional rights.

As a dedicated criminal defense lawyer, I offer a personalized advocacy approach to every case. You need a skilled criminal law attorney to understand your charges and the evidence against you so you can make the best decision for your individual situation. You also need someone on your side who can see past your charges and can zealously advocate that you are more than your mistake(s) or would never have done what you are charged with.

Hard times hit us all, but choosing to lean on the right people can get you through anything. If you or a loved one are charged with a crime or need help sealing or expunging a past offense please schedule a free consultation with me today.
