Can't go wrong with Dave
Dave was a tremendous help to me with my DUI. He went above and beyond. He guided me the whole way through the process even after the court case. He represented me with DMV case as well. Dave is quick to respond and doesn't leave you in the dark about anything. He has tremendous relationships in Colorado with his 40+ years of work. On top of that he is just a grerat human being. I enjoyed my time with Dave, I just wished I met him in different circumstances. I couldn't recommend Dave any higher. A+

Top Lawyer and Genuinely Caring Person
I was referred to Dave by another lawyer and his guidance, advice, and legal defense have been life changing for my daughter. Dave did not just navigate the legal issues flawlessly (he did), but he took the time to get to know my daughter and understand her individual situation. Dave has a rare caring, in a difficult profession, that seeks to help positively change lives.

Amazing lawyer to work with
Dave has worked with me for a few years now. He has been upfront throughout my case. He does not judge but is honest with what the outcomes can be. Dave is the reason I have been able to keep my job and family together. His knowledge as a lawyer is unquestionable without a doubt. His responsiveness to emails and phone calls are less than a day. He has won my case. Words cannot express my gratitude. If you need a lawyer, he’s the best without a doubt.

Exceptional
Look no further when hiring an attorney. Dave Dezen is one of the smartest, caring, prompt, hard-working, funniest, stern, and lovely people I have ever met. He helped me during the scariest and darkest days of my life. With his expertise, I saw the light again. You can count on and trust Dave. I'm forever grateful for this wonderful man and consider Dave a friend.

The Absolute Best
I was in an accident involving another car for which I received a DUI among other charges. We hired David after a friend referred him. I was expecting to not only lose my license for a year but possibly serve jail time as well. While working with David, I felt not only like he was taking my case as a priority but that he cared about me as a person. In the end, I served no jail time, didn’t lose my license and got minimal penalties on all all charges. It was the best outcome for which I could've possibly gotten. He is an extraordinary attorney and man. I would recommend him to anyone.

A Problem Solver!
David was highly recommended to us as a Problem Solver, and indeed he was more like a miracle worker. He gave us such a sense of hope and calm knowing he was in our corner with his expertise, experience and wisdom. He did not sugar coat what we needed to hear, but led us through with his kindness, attentiveness and professionalism . He was always prompt with responses and proactive with our case. We were so happy to hand our worries over to him. My parents were in a car accident in which no one was hurt, but sadly they found themselves being sued by a career “victim” who had “suffered” the same situation three times. It didn’t look hopeful because she was a police officer! Well the case dragged on for 4 1/2 years with the attorney assigned by the insurance company, who was non-communicative, condescending and dismissive. During that time period my father began to decline with Alzheimer’s Disease so was becoming a less and less effective witness in his own defense. David stepped in for us and in just over a month the case was settled. David really cared about us. He is ethical and powerful, and now a friend to this grateful family. We will recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.

Guiding Light
I approached David to represent me on a Driving while Ability Impaired charge. David was understanding of my circumstances but at the same time he counseled me to be proactive in doing things such as attending alcohol education classes. With David’s well intended counsel as well as his experience with the system and in the courtroom we were able to achieve a plea bargain that held me accountable for my actions but yet was not nearly as punitive as it could have been. I very much appreciate David’s wisdom and professionalism as well the second chance he helped me receive.

When in the company of greatness................
Mr Dezen was the light in what had turned out to be a dark reality for me. He is an expert at what he does and he approaches his craft with the human element at the forefront. He spoke to me as if he was a father figure, not a lawyer. David is so well spoken that within minutes of meeting him I knew i was dealing with a savant in the field of law. My situation could have been dire and any conviction would have destroyed my career and everything that i had done to be a model citizen with no criminal record. All charges were dropped and if Mr Dezen was not in my corner I am not sure how any of this would have unfolded. I consider him a friend and i would recommend him to anyone in need of a talented and unique lawyer. Mr Dezen does the research needed to make an impact in a case.

David Dezen's skill and guidance saved our world.
I have known Attorney David Dezen since 1981 and have had occasion to use his service for some minor legal issues. I have always been impressed with his skills and expertise. He has always managed to find the best possible outcome to any situations and often better than I had hoped. On March 20th of last year my wife and I received the call in the middle of the night that all parents dread. Our son had been in an accident with a motorcycle and the other drive had died. Our world came crashing down and we found ourselves desperate for help. David Dezen was our first thought and he answered our call at first light. David told me up front that due to prior commitments he would not be able to take us on but was touched by our desperate situation and relented. Our son was facing a lengthy incarceration with a possible sentence of more than twenty years. Attorney Dezen has always been a very straight forward lawyer and his realistic assessment of our son’s situation did not allow for much encouragement. We bonded our son out the next afternoon. David made time for our son right away and gave him directions on how to begin to prepare himself mentally and physically for his prosecution. He placed our son on a path that actually changed his life on every level. I have seen many lawyers in action over the years but have never seen a lawyer that actually cared on a personal level about someone like David did for our son. It was very difficult for all of us involved to place our complete trust and faith concerning our son’s life in anyone’s hands. We could not be more thankful that we had attorney Dezen. From our very first appearance we watched David take command of the situation. It became obvious from the beginning that Attorney Dezen is very well known and his many years of work in the Denver area have earned him a friendly well respected reputation. His flawless technical ability in the court room is matched by his interpersonal skills. David was masterful in his ability to bring together a sentence in this case that the victim’s family endorsed and that saved our son and gave him back his life. We cannot say enough about what David Dezen did for our son. Our faith in Attorney Dezen, the wisdom of the legal system and a higher power placed our son back on the path to a healthy and productive life and we will be eternally grateful.

Best lawyer on Earth
David helped me in ways I cannot put into words. He clearly cared about me as a person and fought to get me the best outcome I could have ever asked for. He didn't nickel and dime me nor did he cut corners when defending me. Most lawyers in my experience forget the human element in a case and I was overly surprised at how much empathy he showed for me and my family. Had I worked with a different attorney I know the outcome would have been much worse. David is truly an amazing human and a phenomenal lawyer. I am beyond grateful for his help and that I was directed to him. Simply put he is the only attorney you should call to help as I can personally attest to his passion and dedication to his clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dave!

Great experience
Mr. Dezen was able to review my son's criminal record due to a medical illness and had the records sealed. He also helped him obtain his degree and begin his career. We are forever grateful to all the hard work and diligence. Mr. Dezen treated us like family and truly cared about this case.

Best of the best
I live out of state and was lucky a friend referenced Dave to me. He did an amazing job for me. It seemed like a friend handled my case more than an attorney. Dave knows his way through the court system. I had a DUI from many years ago in Denver and never resolved it. Dave enabled me to take care my case mostly in my state. I couldn't have been blessed with better representation. Thank you Dave.
