I have been representing clients on appeal for about fifteen years. I have represented clients in over three hundred appeals and postconviction proceedings, and I have had success in the Colorado Supreme Court, the Colorado Court of Appeals, the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and district and county courts throughout the state of Colorado.
I graduated in law with honors from University College London, which is ranked as one of the top five universities internationally. I then obtained a postgraduate diploma in legal practice from the College of Law in London.
I am admitted to practice law in New York and Colorado. I am also admitted to practice before the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and I am a member of the Tenth Circuit Criminal Justice Act Panel.
I am a member of the Board of Directors of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar and the Colorado Criminal Defense Institute, and I serve on the CCDB's Professional Development Committee and Amicus Subcommittee. I have organized many continuing legal education programs for appellate and postconviction attorneys and I regularly present at seminars and workshops on such subjects as appellate practice, postconviction proceedings, appellate brief writing, and electronic appellate briefs and records.
I am a recipient of the 2010 Gideon Award and I was selected for inclusion in the Rising Stars section of Colorado Super Lawyers® 2010 and 2011 under the practice area of appellate law. I have also been given an AV PreeminentTM Peer Review Rating (5.0 out of 5) by Martindale-Hubbell® .
