Highly Competent, Ethical, and Patient
After interviewing several others over a few months, I chose Mr. Rawlings as my trial attorney. He was honest, and appropriately communicated my options and possible outcomes. In the end, we were well prepared, demanded a trial, and got the best possible outcome. He never once pushed for taking a weak and easy plea, so he earned my respect. I can confidently recommend him as a highly adept trial attorney.

Hiring Greg Rawlings as my Attorney was the smartest decision!
Greg Rawlings is a genuine, intelligent, and experienced Domestic Violence Attorney. At the age of 34, with absolutely no criminal record, I was charged with Domestic Violence and Assault in Colorado. In one of my life's twists of irony, I was arrested for a second time within a year to the date of my first arrest. I was at my life's lowest point. I called Greg about my second arrest. He answered his phone. He didn't judge me. He helped guide and prepare me. Of course, the only sensible decision was to hire Greg Rawlings for my second case, as well. At that point in my life, I needed his skill-set and expertise in spades, because of my already pending allegation. Hiring Greg Rawlings as my Attorney was the smartest decision I made during one of the darkest times of my life. I am a regular hard working woman who made some emotional decisions and had some bad luck and was certainly in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now, I've been blessed with a second chance with my career and future. I followed Greg's professional advice and honest and practical preparation and in December 2018, I received a second chance. Both of my cases were dismissed. I got my life back. I am indebted to Greg Rawlings.

"Hire Greg Rawlings"
I was arrested unexpectedly and charged with several felony charges. It was the the most bizarre situation and worst experience in my life. Absolute fact ! I had never been arrested before and was charged with 5 felonies that included, possession, distribution, cultivation, conspiracy, and manufacturing of concentrates. If in need of a criminal defense lawyer, hire Greg Rawlings. I could go on & on and explain details , but no need. A gentleman that is experienced and knowledgeable. He was responsive and personable without any bullsh#* as well. Trust me , that's what you want when subjected to a criminal defense situation. I am done with the madness and appreciated Greg's ability to deal with me. I was a basket case. Every time I was feeling miserable he put things in perspective, which helped me turn the page. Thank you Greg Rawlings, I'm appreciate you !
