I could not have been more happy with an attorney. Maureen has a well deserved reputation as one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Colorado. Consistently, other attorneys told me she would be their first choice. Maureen provided me excellent legal services. Her memory and attention to detail were impressive. She always made time for me. She appreciated the complexity of my situation. Maureen always provided excellent legal advice and as importantly kind and appropriate empathy. Maureen never missed a detail and consistently followed through in a timely manner with everything she needed to complete. My situation never went to court, but I have no doubt that Maureen would be excellent in that environment too. I have no hesitancy recommending Maureen as an exceptional attorney. I think what truly distinguishes Maureen is that in addition to being an exceptional professional, she is an attorney who truly cares about the clients she represents. Needing a criminal defense attorney is inherently a challenging situation; I fully trusted her professionally, ethically, and personally to represent me. Her partners, though I worked with them less, are great to have on her team.

Maureen is an excellent attorney and all around good person. She is was very personable and compassionate. She was concerned for my best interest, quick to respond to my question and ranting emails. She is knowledgable and has a good repport with prosecuting district attorney's and judges. She kept me informed. Maureen will not coddle or tenderly tell you the possible outcomes of your case, or what youre wanting to hear. She is a straight shooter and doesn't beat around the bush. However, she is also empathetic, understanding and quick with a hug, words of encouragement, or at time she will take you to task if need be.
Maureen got me the best possible out come for my case and I was ecstatic.
Bottom line, she is a five star lawyer and I would recommend her.

Maureen O'Brien is the best attorney one can ever have. She is a five star attorney. Maureen is very knowledgeable with the law and will do whatever it takes to win a case while maintaining her cool and professionalism in the judicial system-having an attorney who is respected in the judicial system is an asset. Another great asset about Maureen is she is very compassionate and attentive to her clients. I also liked the way she had a one on one meeting with the District Attorney and professionally explained the case which led to a successful resolution.
