About Me

We are a Colorado law firm that focuses in three main areas of the law: 1) criminal defense representation; 2) homeowner's and condo owner's associations (HOA's) on behalf of both owners and as general counsel for the association; and 3) and wrongful death civil litigation. We are known by our clients and our opponents to be fearless advocates. We use a trial-centered approach, instead of a settlement-centered approach. This enables us to better work with opposing parties by accurately analyzing your case to find the right legal solution that fairly represents your best interests. While many cases do eventually settle, we have the expertise in the courtroom to get the job done if necessary and effectively convey your message to the jury.

At The Evans Firm, we became lawyers to try cases...not to push paper. If you are going to hire a lawyer, shouldn't you hire one that is able to take your case from beginning to end and not force you to settle?  Read more about how our law firm is different and achieves success and about attorney Michael D. Evans.

We look forward to personally speaking with you and finding out how we can best reach your goals. Check out what our clients have said about our firm. We are also a member of the Better Business Bureau.  When you are ready to hire a hard working lawyer in Colorado, who fights, defends liberty fearlessly, and finds legal solutions, call The Evans Law Firm at 303-221-3634.

You can contact us by phone or email.  We have 5 locations in Colorado to serve you: Denver Tech Center (DTC), Lower Downtown (LoDo), Cherry Creek, Lakewood, and Boulder.
