Personable, Reliable, and Victorious
Rob fought hard and victoriously for me to get a bogus trespassing case dropped without me ever having to step foot in a courtroom. I never had to follow-up or do anything whatsoever, as Rob took care of everything on a case that dragged out for greater than six months. I highly recommend Rob and would definitely want him to represent me again in the future.

Amazing attorney
I was in an absolutely terrible situation with Arapahoe county judicial system and needed help immensely. I was referred to rob by a family member and contacted him immediately. He was very responsive and set up a meeting very quickly. We meet in person and talked about my case. Rob did not waste any time after taking my case. He immediately set out to find all evidence in my favor, shortly after I had an entire discovery in my hands. Weeks later he was at every court hearing as well as sending me reminders and times. After months of Arapahoe county pushing our case out further rob was able to get my case COMPLETELY dismissed. I would not be in the position I am in and or have my career still if it wasn't for rob. Rob is very fair and Reilly cares about his clients. I highly recommend rob for and legal defense cases.

Was wrongfully arrested in another state for dui and needed to know my rights. Rob called me and explained EVERYTHING I needed to know & gave great advice. If he could practice there, I'd hire him for sure.

I was referred to Rob by a friend in August '15 when I was initially charged with a DUI. Rob provided good advise, crucial information, and was very thorough and professional in explaining all nuances of the DUI. Overall, a very positive experience with Rob!

Robert Werking of Werking Law Best Adult Entertainment Attorney in Colorado
I hired Werking Law to represent me in November of 2014 after being unjustly charged with prostitution and solicitation in September of 2014. Robert Werking had my case dismissed in early April of 2015, less than a week before I was set for jury trial. I am so relieved and grateful to Robert Werking for being in my corner throughout this entire ordeal, that it is my pleasure to write a very detailed review for Werking Law Firm. Knowing the devastation these types of charges could potentially have on my career (I am a massage therapist) and my future (I am also a single mother of a young daughter); I wanted only the best attorney to represent my case. I extensively researched and interviewed (in person) a total of three attorneys. All three attorneys had 5 star ratings, were former prosecutors, were listed as “Super Lawyers” and were also listed in the top 100 Trial Attorneys in the United States. I chose Robert Werking for several reasons. The first was his experience. While the other two attorneys were certainly qualified, Robert Werking had over 22 years of experience; more than double the other two attorneys I had researched. The second reason was his genuine interest in my case. He seemed very concerned at the lack of ethics the Denver Police Department had shown in my arrest, processing evidence, and the way they treated me during detainment. Our system is supposed to treat citizens suspected of crimes as innocent until proven guilty, but from first contact with police, they treated me as though I were a guilty, morally reprehensible criminal, unworthy of even the most basic human respect. Emotionally, it was devastating to be treated this way from people in authority that I have been raised all my life to believe are incorruptible and trust-worthy. Many times, attorneys are indifferent to innocence or guilt, as it will not impact their ability to challenge evidence sufficient to secure a conviction. My personal and family relationships had suffered a great deal as a result of these charges; so feeling that someone was truly on my side and believed in my innocence was crucial to my getting through this ordeal. It was very apparent that Robert took my charges and my side of the story very seriously. The last reason I chose Robert Werking was because his retainer’s fee was very competitive. I was surprised that with all his credentials, he was charging me less than the other two attorneys, who were equally qualified but had less experience. After retaining Robert Werking, I was pleased at his diligence in maintaining consistent communication. He always kept me up to date (via phone or email) with my case, what motions had been filed, what the next step was, and what to expect. I cannot express what a relief this was to me during a terrifying time where, in spite of my innocence, I was very anxious and unsure of the outcome. Robert Werking had already uncovered several mistakes in police documentation, possible perjury in police statements and the withholding of important evidence that could exonerate me completely of all the charges. To reassure me, Robert Werking met with me several times, even consulting other attorneys from his firm into our meetings in order to get every possible perspective and strategy for my defense. His attention to detail was meticulous and he left nothing to chance. In spite of the high levels of stress and anxiety I had regarding trial, especially facing charges that have such a negative social stigma attached to them, he rehearsed testimony with me until I felt confident I was ready to face a panel of six of my peers to maintain my innocence. Seven months later, and less than a week before trial, he called me with the news that the DA had accepted his motion to dismiss any and all charges against me. I cannot describe my relief.

Top attorney here.
The arapahoe county district attorney continued my case every month for sixteen months. He stated he wanted a felony conviction if aggravated which he threatened was a maximum of fifteen years.I had to live in limbo with lots of stress. I was on an GPS monitoring system, which is fifteen dollars a day and was being charged with my first felony. A mother of a friend of mine heard of my situation. She has a nephew who received a felony and he is still in prison after ten years. Her nephew had been represented by a court appointed public defender as I was at the time. She insisted I get an attorney. She had read an article on Mr. Werking being one of the top attorneys in Colorado. We sat down down at the computer and messaged Mr. Werking and ten minutes later Mr. Werking called me personally and arranged a consultation the next day. After two court dates, I was offered a misdemeanor deal, which I took and am now on my way to completing my probation. I highly recommend Mr. Werking. He is tough, incredibly smart and in my opinion one of the top attorneys in the world. In less then a month with Mr. Werking my case was over.

AMAZING REPRESENTATION
Mr. Werking has represented two people in my family on two completely separate cases. Both cases were dismissed, Mr. Werking is hard working, very honest , and does not give you a run for your money. He puts all of his effort into your case and works hard until the very end no matter how long the case may be. I would recommend him to anyone. He has been a true blessing to our family. Thank you Rob

Excellent Attorney
Rob took care of my traffic ticket with efficiency. He got me a GREAT result!
Posted by Kyle | August 3, 2011
Thanks for the excellent representation.
When I ran into a very rough encounter in my life and was facing some very serious charges that would've impacted my future, Rob was very honest and comforting and really helped to guide me through the legal process. He answered all questions I had throughout my endeavor and was always available when I had any concerns. This was my first run in with the law, and I certainly hope it is my last but I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer.

Mr. Robert Werking
I would absolutely recommend this lawyer. He helped me through each step and helped me to understand the proceedings fully. All my questions were answered with understanding and patience, which has been greatly appreciated. I am very happy with the outcome of my case and I feel that the outcome was due to my lawyers hard work from start to finish.

Robert G. Werking review
Our experience with Mr. Werking was all together, excellent and we could not have asked for a more responsive, educated attorney. My husband and I were going through a very tough time and didn't have a lot of time to waist while preparing for the big court events. Mr. Werking quickly and thoroughly took things into his own hands and gracefully guided us through each step. If ever there were questions or concerns on our part, we knew that we could rely on Mr. Werking to quickly respond and make suggestions for our best approach on things. Most attorneys will have you speak and communicate with an assistant or coleague but Mr. Werking was the only person that we dealt with the entire time, directly. He was very personable and sensative to all of our needs knowing that this was a very emotional and trying time for us. Mr. Werking was present at each court date and always knew how to handle things professionally and to the best of his ability. He was always available to sit down with us and take some time to review what was in store. I highly recommend his services and would definitely use him again, if there is ever a need.
