About me


Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer

V. Iyer

(Former Successful Prosecutor and CPA)



If you want
Honest, Vigorous, Ethical, Aggressive, and Skilled Criminal Defense
Representation at reasonable fees and an attorney who looks out for your best
interests, then look no further. As a skilled Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer,
I am committed to providing each client with the best possible legal
representation. I have established an impressive record representing clients in
Denver, surrounding communities, Colorado Springs, and throughout the state.


Practice Areas:

Criminal Defense (All City, State &
Federal Courts in Colorado)

DUI and DWAI Defense (Drunk Driving Defense)

Juvenile Criminal Defense

Child Welfare Defense ( Child Abuse and Neglect Defense)

Domestic Violence Defense

All Felonies and Misdemeanor Defense

As a first generation immigrant
and a naturalized U.S. Citizen, I fully understand the peculiar difficulties,
concerns and anxieties of immigrants (legal or illegal). I do not judge you
based on your immigration status; but do realize that you have different
concerns and needs than U.S. citizens. In order to avoid unintentional or
accidental possible negative immigration consequences to our clients, the Iyer
Law Office adopts a helpful policy to inquire into our client’s immigration
status in order to avoid irreversible negative immigration consequences
including deportation or denial of U.S. Citizenship.


No case or matter is too small
for my Firm. Call me immediately if you have been arrested or are under
investigation for any of the following criminal offenses:

  • Criminal Law (Colorado State
    and Federal)

  • DUI and DWAI

  • Domestic Violence

  • Drug Crimes

  • Juvenile Crimes and Dependency and Neglect

  • All Misdemeanors and Felonies

  • All Traffic cases

  • Crimes Against the Person

  • Crimes Against Property

  • Crimes Involving Fraud

My professional philosophy and
credo has always been that the most important and only factor that really
matters, in EVERY CASE, is the CLIENT'S BEST INTEREST. As a former Colorado
State Deputy District Attorney, I understand and work with the prosecution (but
always protecting your rights and interests) to secure the best possible
resolution to your case. I will provide you with my best legal advice and
judgment; but you are in ultimate control of your case. You decide whether to
take the plea offer or to challenge the accusations at trial. Whichever course
you choose, I provide knowledgeable, vigorous defense, working VERY HARD, at


Prior to establishing my own law
office in January 2005, I was a Deputy District Attorney in Colorado for about three years. As a
prosecutor, I successfully prosecuted thousands in County and District Courts.
I have conducted ovder hundreds of jury and Bench (Judge) trials and
thousands of pre-trial and all types of motions hearings.  

Therefore, I have ACTUAL TRIAL
EXPERIENCE. I understand how the criminal justice system works. As a skilled
Denver Criminal Lawyer, I use this special knowledge and experience to walk and
guide you through the labyrinth of the Criminal Justice System in a
user-friendly, courteous and respectful manner.


Unlike some criminal defense
attorneys, my Firm will always assist you during all stages of the criminal
justice system including Bail Bonding, Bail Reduction, and the pre-arrest
process. I will always move the Court to either release you on a PERSONAL
RECOGNIZANCE BOND (you are out of jail on your signature) or to reduce any bond
to an affordable and reasonable amount. Your freedom is always my FIRST


I will always work very hard and smart to protect your
rights, promote your interests and to achieve the best possible outcome and
resolution in a cost-effective and efficient manner

If you have been accused of a
crime, the decisions you make now can literally affect the rest of your life.
The strength of your defense should be assessed by an attorney who fully
understands the unique facts of your case and who knows how the law applies to
your circumstances. Only then can you make the critical decisions that will
protect your future. As a skilled Colorado Criminal Defense Attorney, I have
extensive experience helping people make these important decisions.
