About me

After spending my childhood in Colorado and then moving away with my family, I returned in 2000 to Northern Colorado and put down roots. I began with the Colorado State Public Defender's Office, where I enjoyed more than 10 years as a Deputy State Public Defender.


In 2011, it was time to open my own practice, and the Stout Law Firm was born. I practice in the areas of Criminal Defense and Family Law.


I have been lead counsel in more than 100 jury trials and numerous trials to the court. I have argued in the appellate courts and the Colorado Supreme Court.


My very best days are ones I spend in court helping people to resolve their cases, whether that be through negotiation, ligiation, or trial. I look forward to many more years helping the residents of Northern Colorado.
