Posted by a client
I was dragged into a felony case and prospects for my future and my career were looking bleak. We looked for lawyers online and Michael Steinberg looked like our best option on paper based on his qualifications and prior experience working as a district attourney.
Michael Steinberg is cool, collected, and focused. He also has considerable knowledge in fields outside of law and is a quick study, which was especially helpful for my case which involved some cutting edge technology. During the course of my case, he always made me aware of all my options and what kind of results to expect from each option. He would also put my mind to ease every time I showed up to court by telling me what to expect would happen in court that day.
Before hiring a lawyer I was stressed and apprehensive about the outcome of the case. I felt extraordinarily at ease with Michael Steinberg representing me and I am extremely satisfied with the result he was able to produce for my case.

I found Mr. Steinberg through google search. It was the best search I've ever made. I left a voicemail and within minutes I was contacted. I explained to him my case and he immediately explained to me my options and reassured me that everything was going to be ok. In the few months leading up to my sentencing, Mr Steinberg always kept me updated on my case. He is a kind hearted person and is very passionate about his clients. He has shared some stories with me to give me reassurance with my situation. He became somewhat of a mentor to me while going through this crisis in my life. Mr Steinberg is a reputable man and is also an extremely proficient good attorney. I would recommend him without any hesitation. I'm very happy with my decision in hiring him and even more happy to be able to call him a friend.

When my 17-year-old daughter got a DUI, I immediately thought of H. Michael Steinberg (who had only been a friend up to this point) to get his help to guide us through the court system. Our first conference was to get the facts, get to know and understand my daughter better, and for him to let us know what would happen and what we needed to do to help him. Besides helping us legally, my daughter started to listen to his advice and recommendations, and understand the seriousness of her situation. H. Michael argued at her DMV hearing, stood beside my daughter at her plea/sentencing, and achieved his goal, the best outcome we could get. As we left the courtroom, he told my daughter anecdotal stories about drinking and driving, and my daughter truly listened to him. H. Michael is a caring, forthright, honest and reliable person, and someone I would highly recommend for legal advice.

I hired Mr. Steinberg in March of 2016 for a federal case that, while small, had the potential to ruin my career goals, simply by the very nature of the case. I had never had any personal experience with the judicial system, and I was completely lost and very emotional. Mr. Steinberg was candid, realistic, and extremely knowledgeable ,but he was also kind enough to gently steer me to see things as they were, rather than through my cloud of anger and sadness over my case. He kept me "in the loop," and on the day of my arraignment, he stood up for me and was very aggressive in making sure I was treated fairly. He ultimately saved my future career by getting me an amazing deal which will leave me with almost no record to speak of. His extensive knowledge and commitment to excellence (even in my small case), as well as his candor and kindness ensure that I would trust him with any case, and he would be the only attorney in Denver whom I would recommend to my loved ones. His experience, knowledge, skill, and integrity make for the best criminal defense attorney in the Denver metro area.

Consulting with Michael about my husband's case is the best thing that I did. I sent him a brief email through his website on a Saturday, and he replied with a phone call within an hour. When we met with him, he was great about listening to our concerns and what we thought were weak points in the case.
In the end, after asking us questions and looking at evidence, he told us what we needed to know - not what we wanted to hear. He could have easily taken advantage of our hope that he could either get a better plea bargain or acquittal, but he told us that the plea bargain was as good as it would get and that we would be better off keeping our money. Now instead of desperately focusing on how to make this go away, we are working on accepting it and moving on.

My family came across Michael on the web while I was in jail for my initial arrest. We decided to go with him because of his huge knowledge base, online presence, reviews, and past experience . Michael helped me through a tough time in my life when it came to my DV charge. He was knowledgeable, respectful and knew exactly what moves to make in the chess game of the court system. If your looking for an attorney in Colorado, H. Michael Steinberg is the only attorney I would recommend. Thanks for everything Michael!

I hired Mr. Stainberg as my lawyer and could not be more pleased and impressed with his professionalism and knowledge.
Mr.Stainberg is an absolutely phenomenal lawyer. Without his dedication and hard work on my case I would not be with my family right now. He really goes the extra mile for his clients.
Any time I had a concern, he responded immediately with though and consideration. Also he was upfront and honest and I felt this was the most important factor for me. In the courtroom,his presence is known and hi is well respected. CASE DISMISSED and I was especially pleased by the way I was treated. H. Michael Stainberg is amazing at his job. I highly recommend him!
Forever thankful MP

H. Michael Steinberg represented me throughout a very difficult felony case, and I couldn't have asked for a better attorney.
If you are looking for an attorney that will sugar coat everything and say only what the client wants to hear, then H. Michael is NOT the attorney for you. He is brutally honest, which may be difficult for some people, but he tells it like it is so there are no surprises. He is compassionate and caring and is very responsive to any questions or concerns you may have (at all hours of the day and night... he never sleeps!). The amount of research that he spent on my case alone was incredible, and I saw the amount of files, paperwork, etc. that he had.
We went to trial in December 2015 and it lasted approximately two weeks. Ultimately, with H. Michael's awesome trial tactics and knowledge, I was convicted on a lesser felony and a misdemeanor... but it did not require a mandatory DOC sentence and I got to return home and be with my family for Christmas.
Originally, I was facing a mandatory 10-32 years in DOC, so this was an extremely serious charge. H. Michael thought that with everything that I had done to mitigate what had happened that I would receive 4 years probation and no DOC/jail time. I was sentenced in March 2016, and the DA was asking for 2 years DOC on the felony and 12 months jail on the misdemeanor. H. Michael through his knowledge of the courts and experience convinced the judge to sentence me to 4 years probation on the felony and 1 year probation on the misdemeanor, to run concurrently... he was 100% in what the sentence would be!
My case has been lengthy, ongoing for almost 2 years. H. Michael was by my side at every court hearing, answering any questions or concerns I had, and working extremely hard to fight for my innocence.
To say that I am grateful to H. Michael Steinberg, would be a gross misstatement because I owe him my life! His experience as a criminal defense attorney and former DA proved to be invaluable. My family and I have gotten to know him on a personal level, and consider H. Michael a friend now (more like a family member).
I highly, HIGHLY recommend H. Michael Steinberg if you are in need of a criminal defense attorney in the state of Colorado!

I cannot express how grateful I am to have been represented in my DUI case by H. Michael Steinberg. This was my 2nd DUI and my chances of maintaining my career and home were very low. Our family was in great anguish and Michael brought us stability and hope. He never sugar coated anything and told us what to expect. He spent the time to research the specifics in my case and with his extensive background as a DA, he helped me build an argument that well represented my situation and was reflective upon what I learned throughout the process. His experience helped me align my statements with what the judge needed to hear to minimize my sentence, preceded by his well thought out argument on my behalf. My sentence could not have been better, I received all the minimums the judge could offer. I’ve learned my lessons and thanks to Michael, I have saved my Career and home. I highly recommend Michael for your defense, he’s an outstanding lawyer and individual.

Michael represented me in two different cases, both of which did not look good for me. I didn't have much hope going into it that I could come out on the other side, but it felt easy to put my faith in him. I saw very early on in my cases that he was well respected and knew how to handle these cases to get the best possible outcome. A straight shooter that didn't accept anything less than what I could have hoped for. Not only did he present himself as a knowledgeable and honest person, but a friend to discuss my problems with. I truly believe that nobody else could have gotten the results that he did. I never doubted him for a second.
I couldnt have asked for better representation. If I ever need anything, I know who to call.
Thanks again and best wishes,
