Brian Killeen McHugh

also known as Brian K. McHugh

About me


I have been specializing in criminal law and procedure for over 28 years. More than 22 of those years as a Deputy District Attorney and Chief Deputy District Attorney in the 18th Judicial District - Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln Counties. In late 2009 I opened my own practice and continue to specialize in criminal law and procedure, now as a criminal defense attorney.


Over the years I have dealt with a wide variety of cases, from minor traffic cases and DUI's to 1st Degree Murder and everything in between.


I was a member of the 18th Judicial District's Critical Incident Team which responded to officer involved shootings and in-custody deaths.


I have presented classes on criminal law and procedure to law enforcement officers and prosecutors. I testified before legislative committees on matters pertaining to criminal law and procedure and assisted in drafting proposed legislation in those areas. I have briefed and argued numerous cases before the appellate Courts in the state of Colorado.


I take pride in my knowledge of criminal law, criminal procedure, the rules of evidence, and my experience and skill in the courtroom.
