About me

My firm specializes in criminal, traffic and DUI defense and we do not practice any other area of law. I am a fierce criminal defense attorney serving the Denver Metro area and the Front Range.  I have successfully defended citizens against abuses of power, false accusations and police harassment. In all, I have assisted over 600 clients with matters both criminal and traffic related. I have a winning trial record as both a defense attorney and prosecutor.

    Mr. Pisani is an exemplary attorney that I would not hesitate to refer to anyone and everyone. He provides excellent and informed answers here on Avvo. I have been a judge, magistrate, prosecutor, law professor, and private attorney over the past 24 years and I still regularly learn new aspects about the law from his answers.

  • Elizabeth Jane Meier Howard

    I highly recommend Steve as a criminal defense attorney. I would not hesitate to refer any of my clients in need of advice or representation regarding a criminal matter to Steve. Steve is compassionate, hard working, client centered, and most importantly good at what he does. Steve goes above and beyond for his clients because he recognizes the importance of his work and of the effect these criminal proceedsings have on his clients. If you are in need of a criminal defense attorney, you can rest assured that Steve will give your case the attention it deserves.
