My name is Shazam Kianpour, and my passion is Criminal Defense.  I served 4 years as a Government attorney in the public sector defending criminal cases.  

 

Most of my jury trials have been felonies.  I specialize in Sex Crimes and Violent Crimes however I have a senior staff of attorneys at Shazam Kianpour & Associates who specialize in DUI and Traffic law and another who specialize in Family and Domestic Violence and Economic and White Collar Crimes.

 

I have experience in Federal Court, especially in Sex Crimes, possession and Distribustion of Child Pornography, and Child Sex Crimes.  I have taken cases from simple DUI and speeding tickets all the way up to Homicide cases to trial and been first and second chair in them to many varying degrees.

 

While I see litigation as a sometimes necessary component of law, I believe the adverserial process is overplayed.  What is best for the case is really a matter of what is best for your client, your clients future and your clients family.  I am not smarter than my clients, I am merely experienced in a field that they are not. I have had clients tell me they feel like I spent a lot of time educating them as to the law so instead of me telling them what to do, it was a joint process and venture that left them feeling like the decision of how their life played out was their own.  My job is to protect you, my job is to secondarily defend you.  These are two different aspects of law and often some lawyers get so bent on defending their client, they forget that protecting them comes first.  Call me to ask me the difference between protecting, and defending people.  And ask about the difference between my law firm, and the others, and during our conversation, you will see why you have made the smart choice in selecting Shazam Kianpour & Associates for your Colorado raffic and criminal defense needs.

Very Happy Client!
From the beginning I knew I was in good hands and that my case was going to be taken care of by the best attorney for my situation! I would recommend Mr. Kianpour and his staff to anyone that needs an attorney.

Employer transgression & cover up overted.
Mr. Kianpour assisted me in defending myself against an employer's dept. manager who initiated false accusations in an effort to shield himself from potential fall out that was the result of blatant unprofessional behavior. His correspondence resulted in the cessation of false accusations and an improvement in working conditions for everyone in the dept.

Understanding, Straightforward, and Excellent!
Shazam was there to help when I really needed an ally. He was straight with me, timely with his responses and meetings, and best of all, didn't treat me like scum (like a few other criminal defense lawyers I spoke with did). Our first phone call was terrifying, I was lost, and he was cool as a cucumber. Gave me the direction I needed, ran interference with the detective who had me cornered, and helped me every step of the way. He's assertive, charismatic, obviously well-liked in the courts, didn't believe a word when I tried to BS him a little (ha), then took the time to explain what he was aiming for, the possible outcomes, and the various probabilities. Genuinely an excellent plus in my case - he listened to what I wanted and fought for me, kept me out of jail and got me a much lesser sentence than the prosecutor was gunning for. I can say, 100% honestly, that if I am ever in need again, he will be the first call I make. I've even recommended him to a few friends for minor issues, something I've never done before! Shazam is a cool guy, a fantastic lawyer, and his office is tremendously helpful, even when you're freaking out and having a bit of a crisis!

Look no further than Shazam
I have utilized the services of Shazam Kianpour for the past two years, representing my son who has been battling substance abuse problems. Through repeated court dates associated with his case and a subsequent probation violation, Shazam was at our side. Many Attorneys would probably have dropped my son's case, but he showed that he truly cared about him (and my wife and I as concerned/caring parents) and hung in there with us through thick and thin. I would highly recommend Shazam for all the right reasons. He is a smart, knowledgeable and reliable Attorney who will provide excellent legal representation.

Every Thing I hoped for!
Facing a felony charge has been one of the scariest things i have had to deal with. I chose Shazam as my lawyer because from the beginning he was realistic , friendly, and gave me assurance that he would fight for the best outcome possible. Through out the case he was there every step of the way , never making promises he could't keep and making sure I understood what was happening. In all honesty I couldn't have hoped for a better outcome to my case, from the beginning I wanted NO jail or prison and Shazam came through and got me the outcome I wanted. Would definitely recommend him .
