About Me

I have been licensed to practice law in the State of Colorado for over 27 years. I spent more than 22 years as a Deputy District Attorney and Chief Deputy District Attorney in the 18th Judicial District which includes Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties.  I left the office in late 2008 to go into private practice and specilaize in criminal defense.

Over the years I have been responsible for a wide variety of cases, everything from traffic matters (including DUIs) to 1st Degree Murder. Just before leaving the office I was assigned to Economic Crime/White Collar Crime Unit. 

I take pride in my knowledge of criminal law, criminal procedure, the rules of evidence, and my experience and skill in the courtroom.

    I endorse Mr. McHugh. You can tell from his thorough responses to questions on Avvo and sage wisdom that he has the passion and compassion necessary to be a fine advocate. He spends his own time giving advice to the Avvo community and that is something worth noting.
