Nothing short of perfection.
Now were do I begin, I contacted Mr. Ellmann over a three year period while I had felony warrants for my arrest. He always took the time to answer my questions. I assured him I would hire him when I had saved the money to return to Colorado, bond out etc.. When I finally did I had a 27,000 all cash bond, this was scary as I had turned my life around and had I wife and 1 year old son who needed me free. Mr. Ellmann through his connections in the da's office and expertise secured me a surety bond. Furthermore instead of waiting on a sherriff the judge allowed Mr. Ellmann himself to escort me to the intake i was out in 10 hours. Now things looked bad as the da's deal was 3 years DOC. I assured Mr. Ellmann that the substance I possessed was not meth and he never questioned me. It was lab tested and all charges were dismissed except a misdemeanor. Kevin was an absolute warrior in my corner, the DA had every intention of locking me away for 3 years and i got 6 months misdemeanor probation. If you need an attorney in douglas county this your guy. Mr. Ellmann is an ethical lawyer who truly cares about his clients.Thanks again Mr Ellmann.

Very good attorney!
Kevin was my criminal defense attorney. I feel very fortunate to have had him represent me. I am an attorney myself, so when I was charged with a crime, it was a very big deal for me. The impact of my case could have an effect on my law license and ability to practice. Having been an attorney for many years, I have seen a lot of criminal defense lawyers at work. Kevin surprised me by his representation and passion. In my opinion, he is a far better attorney than most. He knows Douglas country inside and out. I am very happy with my results and the representation he provided. I would highly recommend him to anyone. When you are facing a criminal charge - something so serious - not any attorney will do, believe me! You need the best. Someone with skill, experience and demeanor. If you have been charged with a crime, especially in Douglas country, but anywhere in Colorado, you should hire Kevin. You can't put a cost on results in a criminal case. He is well worth every penny!

Kevin is a great Lawyer & I am glad I chose him to represent me
I had two serious felonies that I was facing, and Kevin got my ass out of trouble. I'm more than happy with the outcome of my case. Kevin is highly recommended in my book.

Hands down, best attorney you will find.
When I found myself facing felony charges, and being in legal trouble for the first time in my life, it was nothing short of a blessing that I found Kevin. I met with several different attorneys and when I met Kevin, I knew that I would look no further. He is knowledgeable, sharp and very articulate. He also has the edge of having been an Assistant District Attorney. Having an attorney who has worked both "sides" of the courtroom is an absolute gift! From judges, clerks, past clients and every one in between...they all speak highly of Kevin and enjoy working with him. For me, I am very grateful for his hard work and personal attention to handling my case. I refer him with absolutely confidence.

OUTSTANDING
I contacted Kevin with a small problem with my license and he jumped right in with both feet and took care of it for me. Being 2000 miles away I put all my trust in him that he would take care of it and not only was it taken care of, the outcome far exceeded my expectations. If you need a lawyer, you need kevin.

Great Attorney
Along with Kevin's knowledge of the law, Kevin also has an edge in that he has great connections in the district attorney's office and knowledge of how they opperate. Kevin knows when a case needs to settle and when to push the case to trial. Kevin has never let me down and I have referred Kevin to several people who inform me that they too were satisfied by his representation.

Outstanding and Superior Attorney
Last fall, I was facing two very serious felony charges. Working in the financial industry, these charges were potentially career-threatening. After speaking with several attorneys, I had the pleasure of a face-to-face consultation with Mr. Ellmann. From the very beginning of our meeting, I knew he was far above and beyond a typical attorney. He was very honest, understanding, straight-forward and punctual. He never set false expectations and could always be counted on to be direct. This being my first time offense and completely unaware of the legal processes, Mr. Ellmann always took the time to interpret every detail of the legalities in a language I could understand. He was early for every court appointment. He was dependable. He was forth-right. Most important of all, he honestly cares about client. In turn, solely due to Kevin's hard work, I was able to receive the outcome I had asked from the courts. Without Kevin, I am thoroughly convinced my life would be completely different, and I thank him for saving my career. If you're looking for an attorney who far exceeds the norm in his profession, Kevin is the one to represent you.

Kevin Ellmann is a wonderful lawyer
Kevin was always available and was very responsive. He helped our family greatly!!!! We were very glad to have him as our lawyer. His name came to us on a referral of a friend. He helped us understand the court process and what to expect in the judicial system. He always explained everything and was very helpful! I would highly recommend him!

Hopefully you don't need a lawyer, but if you do, Kevin is a good option. I used him for a domestic case. I was able to get a favorable outcome at the end of the day. Kevin helped answer all of my questions.
