About Me

I have always focused my law career on exclusively Criminal Law. For many years -during and after college - I worked as a paralegal for Legal Aid (poverty law firms) in Oregon, all over Massachusetts and Illinois as both a college student and later as a VISTA volunteer between college and law school. 


 


In law school I interned at the Federal Prosecutor's office in Eugene, Oregon - and later as a third year DA at the Lane County District Attorney's office. Later - after law school - I worked  as a law clerk directly for a famous criminal law judge in Denver Colorado followed closely thereafter by a lengthy and well known career as a Senior Career District Attorney for the Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and Elbert County District Attorney (the Colorado 18th Judicial District) for almost 13 years.


 


In 1999 - I opened my Denver Tech Center law firm and have successfully defended thousands of clients over the past 16 plus years. I use all of that experience every day of my life to benefit my clients both tactically and strategically in defending their cases.


 


During the last 30 years - I have gained a tremendous amount of courtroom and real life experience in the trenches.- before juries, and tough judges ... not behind a desk. Many of my cases have been high profile and I have been a guest commentator on several national cable networks, I am frequently quoted in national and Colorado newspapers and I publish my own Colorado Criminal Law Blog to stay on top of Colorado and national criminal law issues.


 


My Blog - www.Colorado-Criminal-Lawyer-Online.com


 


I have been a teacher at two police academies and guest instruct at both law enforcement and criminal defense seminars on a regular basis.


 


Most of all - I am the proud father of two fantastic children - one in law school - the other a senior in college.  They, and my wonderful wife, are my life and ultimately what really matters at the end of the day. 


 


When I find time to feed my hobbies, I love to read, sail on my sailboat, kayak, work out five days a week, ski and, yes, I am a computer nerd ( at 6 foot 1 inch and 260 pounds) ... of sorts. 


 


I love what I do -- and greatly enjoy the analysis of tough Colorado Criminal cases.- and I am good at it. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your case. HMS
