About Me


     At the Law Offices of M. Colin Bresee, our full focus is criminal defense. Based in Denver, Criminal Attorney Bresee is a premier criminal defense lawyer for the State of Colorado. He recognizes that every client’s case is as unique as his or her own DNA. His legal team will work with you to create your customized strategy of defense based solely on the merits of your case.


     While unpopular to say, the American legal system puts you at a disadvantage. The judge, the prosecutors, and law enforcement all receive their checks from the same place – the government. These elected prosecutors have practically unlimited budgets, and investigators sitting in their offices, to assist them in convicting you. If you do not have deep pockets and the right connections, many people feel that they cannot get a “fair” trial. That is where we come in; our job is to level the playing field for you. As a well-respected Colorado wide criminal attorney, Mr. Bresee has handled some of the most challenging cases and has achieved astonishing results for our clients.
