About me

Charles Greenwood attended the University of Colorado in Boulder for both his undergraduate and law degrees.  For several years, he worked as a District Attorney and has tried dozens of cases to a jury, winning over 80% as well as 100% of the appeals he authored.

He then became dissatisfied with the justice system.  It became clear that locking people away did nothing to help anyone, and he decided to open his own defense firm.

Charles has experience with every type of criminal case in every courthouse on the Front Range including DUIs, assaults, drug cases, car thefts, domestic violence, and even homicides.
