I started my career as a deputy district attorney in the 18th judicial district (Arapahoe County and Douglas County).  During my time with that office, I litigated hundreds if not thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases.  I learned under some of the best prosecutors in Colorado and obtained a wealth of experience in trying cases of all types to a jury.

After gaining significant experience as a district attorney, I decided to take the next step by moving into private practice where I accepted a position at one of the top tax litigation firms in the nation.  For a little over one year, I worked on: sensitive audits of individual taxpayers and businesses, appeals to the Internal Revenue Service, cases before the United States Tax Court, voluntary disclosures, and criminal tax cases.

Next, I accepted a position with one of the premiere criminal defense firms in Colorado.  During my five years with that firm I gained invaluable experience defending clients who were charged with anything from driving under the influence to first degree homicide.  I had the privilege of working with some of the best trial attorneys in the nation while serving clients in a wide variety of criminal cases. 

The final step in my journey led me to forming The Blair Law Office, LLC, where I am the President and sole owner. Growing up watching my mother and father run a small business, I always knew that owning and running my own firm would be the best fit for the next generation of my family. I am proud to say that in year three the firm has achieved overwhelming success both in and out of the courtroom.  

My experience, connections, and passion for litigation continue to serve the firm's clients well in achieving their desired results.  Whether it’s negotiating the best possible deal, or trying a case to a jury, the critical and only objective is always to obtain the best possible result for our clientele.

This is the lawyer you want to hire
I hired David Blair to represent me in a case in 2021. After never even getting a plea deal from the prosecution, we took it to trial. Without a doubt Mr. Blair is who you want to have in your corner. As council, he knows exactly what he's doing and will advise you in the right direction. During my trial, David amazed me with his abilities and attention to detail. Hiring Mr. Blair was the best decision I could have ever made. The perfection of how well he is at his craft helped me to get a not guilty verdict, along with having one of the shortest deliberations by a jury that only lasted 10 minutes. David Blair is without a doubt the Man you want

Far exceeded my expectations!
I was facing multiple felony drug related charges. I was rightfully very nervous and worried to the outcome of my case and how it would impact my near and long-term future. I was referred to David and during our first meeting he answered all my initial questions and discussed what he thought he could do for me in realistic terms. I left the meeting more informed about the process and feeling better about my predicament. I hired David the next day and throughout the Covid prolonged year and a half court process never once regretted it. I was a very nervous client with many questions. David responded to my multiple calls, texts and emails in a very timely manner that made me feel he cared about me as a person and not just a client. I found David to be an understanding, caring and genuine person as well as an excellent attorney. David's experience as a District Attorney and within the legal community where he is well respected and liked helped my case immensely. David worked hard to get me a deal that far exceeded my expectations, and I truly couldn't be happier with the outcome. I highly recommend David and will refer him to anyone with confidence. I can finally breathe easy and get on with my life, thank you David!

David is such a brilliant lawyer. I am so grateful for his passion, dedication, and professionalism. From the moment I walked in the door for my consultation, he worked efficiently on my case. Not only one case, but two. He made the process better, and guided me the entire way. He executed both cases and surpassed all my expectations. The price was reasonable and he is very attentive to all your questions and needs. I highly recommend him, If you need an attorney this is your guy!

We have used David on 2 different occasions and had outstanding results both times. David is the most personable, genuine, caring lawyer I’ve ever met. He fights for his clients while keeping you informed and up to date on the status of your case. David is very responsive and returns phone calls, texts and emails in a very timely manner. David was referred to us by a friend and I definitely would refer him to anybody looking for a superb lawyer. He is worth every penny. Thank you David. Sherri & Chaz

Hands down the best law firm out there!
David has represented multiple people in my family including myself, and we have always been more than grateful and pleased with the outcome. He knows his stuff and will always walk the extra mile for you. If you want a lawyer on your side that actually cares for you on a personal level instead of just handling you as a “case”, look no further! I will always recommend David to anyone and everyone I can.

Mr. Blair is an absolutely OUTSTANDING man and lawyer.
A good friend of mine was facing a whole mess of charges that would total up to years and years in prison, long story short Mr. Blair minimized the time he will spend incarcerated and not only that but truly helped my friend grow as a person in several ways. I have also used Mr. Blair's services in the past and he absolutely delivers in every aspect. If you are lucky to have come across this man I urge you to look no further. Would rate 6 stars if I could Mr. Blair has been a true blessing to not only my life but also one of my closest friends.

Expert criminal defense!
When I was thrown in to a situation where I felt helpless and wronged, David was there for me. He was thorough and understanding. He went through every detail of my case and broke it down and made it easy for me to understand what was happening and what needed to happen. It was a very stressful situation for me but from the moment I hired David he had my best interest at heart. He was extremely well spoken, thorough, and able to adapt as we went through trial. I am extremely grateful for him and his ability to get me back to my family and through my case. I would highly recommend David to anyone that is seeking a criminal defense lawyer. I know who I’ll turn to if I ever find myself in another difficult situation.

Excellent 10 star attorney!!!!!
After a consultation with Mr. Blair and a thorough review of my plea agreement done by a previous attorney, it had 2 choices for sentencing; jail or in home detention (IHD). I was praying for IHD and Mr. Blair was successful by his defense of my case in obtaining that for me at a 2nd sentencing hearing! Mr. Blair at the last hour took my case and I can’t thank him enough! I am so grateful to him for this outcome on my case!!! His calm demeanor and thoroughness in sitting down with me assured me he was the best attorney to represent me! He did not treat my case as if it was an item in a factory line and my outcome would be the usual standard outcome. He was professional, knowlegable and explained the law so the lay person knew what the options were or might be. If you are looking for an attorney to represent your interests I highly recommend Mr. Blair as he will do the best job for you!

Excellent Lawyer
I had a domestic violence case I was stuck in, and everyone was telling me to just take a deal because no matter what it would not get dropped and it would just be a waste of money to hire a lawyer. I even spoke with a lawyer before David who told me the same thing! I was determined to get this dropped, so I asked some friends who had dealt with court in the past to recommend a good lawyer. This is how I found David. Despite what I had heard and who I talked to, David told me exactly what to do and I did everything he said. In the end, the whole thing was dropped and I couldn't be any happier. I am extremely thankful for the help I got from David; he is the man. Highly, highly recommend!!

Denver County Dui
David was the most professional lawyer I’ve ever had. Showed up to court dates ahead of time. Strategically consurcted a plan of attack and got me the results I needed. David worked hard to ensure my case would be dismissed. Fought all the way through a jury trial and won. This guy delivered on everything he said and kept It honest with me throughout the entire case. 13 months of hard work turned to success thanks to Mr Blair.

Domestic Violence Nightmare
Wow, where do I start? Well my name is Ronnie and just recently I was charged with Domestic Violence. I was in a toxic relationship for 7 years and I was in some really trying times more often than not. Finally I got fed up with trying to make things work and I finally asked her to leave. I gave her an ultimatum to make arrangements and to be gone by a certain time or I would serve her with eviction papers. Well when her time had come up, an argument ensued and to make a long story short, I was arrested and charged with Domestic Violence. I am a man who has never in my life been in trouble with the law. I pay my bills on time, pay my taxes, follow rules and regulations and lastly, I obey the law. In fact I don't even have as much as a parking ticket. With that being said if something like this could happen to me, It can certainly happen to you. If you're reading this and you're in search for an attorney then I'm here to tell you to stop your search! Here's why. After getting released from jail I was approached by a family member who referred David Blair to me and he was highly praised, because of his prior case. I was intrigued, so I asked to meet with Mr. Blair. When I came to his office and sat down with him, I was able to discuss what happened in detail and I could tell immediately that he was not only understanding, but he was also very experienced and I hired him that very day. David showed up to court with me and on every scheduled court hearing, David chipped away at the DA's case little by little. Weather it be from the small victories like the protection order for me to see my kids to the big victories in getting my sentence reduced. I was looking at 90 days in jail, Classes and a psychiatric evaluation. Not only was I looking at all of that, but I was in jeopardy of losing my government job. For me this was a complete nightmare! I could lose everything and on top of that, I would have to live with that crucial blemish on my record for every employer to see when doing a background check and making good jobs impossible to attain. It made me sick to my stomach and it accounted for many sleepless nights. I have to admit, I was very terrified. When David went to work on my case, I stated earlier that he was able to chip away at the DA's case. On one particular day he was able to get my 90 days in jail reduced to no days in jail and no psychiatric evaluation. However I would still have to plead guilty and go to classes and to not get into any trouble for a year. That wasn't very hard for me, but I didn't feel that I should have to do any of that for something I didn't do. David had made a huge difference in my case and because of that I decided to take it all the way to trial. David was able to go back to work on my case and to my surprise, he was able to get my case dismissed before the scheduled trial. Not only was he able to keep my record clean, but I was also able to keep my job. Mr. David Blair is an attorney that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for counsel and if you want someone who has experience, is understanding, has the ability to communicate clear and concise, who is available, has good rapport, and reasonable pricing then David is the attorney that you want to representing you. for me there wasn't any question, this was my life and my future. I not only trusted him, but I believed in him and I knew that he was the attorney for me and I believe he can be for any one of you who reads this. David, thank you for all that you've done for me. I am eternally grateful to you!

David did an outstanding job defending me during my court proceedings. He was very understanding of my situation and really worked to get me the best possible outcome. I feel he did his very best to understand the full picture and work with the DA to reach a deal everyone was happy with. I recommend his services to anyone looking for fare representation and a diligent approach.

The best counsel and defense attorney
I was looking at a sentence rand of up to 40 yrs. Like anyone I was guilty of a few things but I was not guilty of any crimes that could be stretched to that sentencing range. Upon meeting Mr. Blair one only thinks that he is young well dressed and speaks well. I have had the best lawyers represent me since I was in my twenties and they did not do half of the job Mr. Blair did. From the start you will know that no matter what no one is more prepared than Mr. Blair. He is a soft spoken with perfect mannerisms when the time and situation calls for and he will deal out the perfect amount of verbal aggression to disable any district attorneys arguments. He is a lion in the court room but he also was prepared more than anyone on my cases. He knew details of my cases that I had over looked or forgot. He dealt with the police and there investigation. He trully took charge and direction from the beginning. He underpromises and over delivers.
