Best of the best
Hands down best lawyer you could get for any traffic violations. David went above and beyond my expectations. He also goes over everything in detail with you. He has great assistants as well and could not be more pleased with the outcome of my case. His professionalism speaks volumes and I’m forever grateful that I found David to represent my case.

Success Against a Very Difficult Court
After researching 8-10 law firms and telling them the Misdemeanor Speeding Ticket I've received from El Paso County Court, they literally told me "Good luck with that one. They won't budge". However, after speaking with Mr. Colt, he welcomed the case with open arms and approached it with positive energy. He dug deep and found a creative solution that I believe only he would have been able to come up with given his time as a Police Officer. As a result of this creativity, he was able to get a Misdemeanor with 6 points, down to an Equipment Violation with only 2 points at what is considered the most difficult court to deal with. Absolutely amazed by what he was able to do on my particular case. He's got my recommendation for any vehicle violation. "Wow" is the only way to describe what he was able to accomplish on my case.

David saved my license!
I was facing two misdemeanor traffic tickets with a possible license suspension when I contacted David Colt. He took care of my case completely from the beginning and as well I got my case settled to just a minor traffic infraction and I got to keep my license. I would highly recommend David Colt!!!

Excellent Job Beyond Expectations
David was first class understood me and my case and was able to get me a settlement that was much better than what we originally agreed upon. His experience and expertise in traffic shined he got it reduced to a 2-point Defective Vehicle, an equipment violation, a non-criminal/civil traffic infraction. In return for the plea entry, the original charge of 6-point Speeding 20-24, a misdemeanor traffic offense, was DISMISSED. Thanks David you were awesome.

one extremely pleased client
It was a pleasure working with David. He was upfront, honest and realistic with the advice he gave me. I never once felt rushed when working with him on the phone/email and I was informed on my case 100% of the time. That is all I can ask for in a lawyer and that is exactly what David delivers.

Great Attorney
Mr. Colt provided excellent counsel for my traffic accident! He takes the time to understand the situation and is very understanding of how traumatic that the experience is. He successfully represented me in court. If you need a traffic attorney- he is the very BEST!

Kind and helpful
I received a citation for careless driving when I failed to move over a lane when passing a police vehicle pulled over on the shoulder, but otherwise did not cause an accident or injury anyone/damage anything. David’s team was very nice and helpful from the consult, as well as through the process of taking on my case. He was able to get the citation reduced from a criminal to a civil offense that was more fitting of the circumstances and only put 1pt against my license. Everyone I interacted with was very nice and never made me feel judged. I highly recommend David and his team if you are in need of a traffic lawyer!

Awesome Attorney, David got my charges dismissed
I received a court summons for having the wrong plates on my car, so I called Denver Traffic Lawyer to see if I could get help with these charges. The assistant politely explained in simple terms exactly what the charges meant and set up an appointment with David. After an hour or so phone call with David, he set up a pretrial conference to meet with the prosecutor and was able to get the charges completely dismissed. I was never expecting the charges to be completely dismissed, so I am more than happy with the outcome.

Traffic citation worth fighting with Mr. Colt
After interviewing 3 attorneys I hired David because of his past experience in law enforcement and his knowledge of the Denver police and courts and time talking to me about my concerns. I had 3 traffic citations adding up to 24 pts which if found guilty would've cost me my license, job, house, etc. He took the time to fully investigate my case (which was typical Denver police handing out serious violations without evidence or solid detective work) and worked with the prosecutor to drop my citation to 4 points and some community service. His representation was worth every penny considering the consequences of losing my license. I'd highly recommend David to anyone that needs legal help with fighting a serious citation.

Helped me out tremendously
I was in a minor accident for which I was at fault (no injuries). Due to the incredibly strict and unusual traffic laws here in Colorado, and despite having a clean record, I was charged with a careless driving misdemeanor (Colorado's catch all accident traffic citation). Once I starting reading into this charge and all the possible outcomes that could stem from it, I decided I needed a lawyer. I contacted David's firm first and spoke with a member of his team. I felt very confident with the information they provided me from that first call and pretty much hired him on the spot. He and his entire team were very professional and efficient. He was able to get the careless driving misdemeanor charge reduced to a minor civil traffic infraction. I can not thank him enough for all of his and his entire teams hard work and dedication to getting my case resolved. I would recommend David to anyone in need of a EXCELLENT traffic lawyer.

Hire with confidence
I hired David and am so glad I did. He represented my teenage son with complete professionalism, wisdom, practicality and kindness. He took his time listening to us and advising us with compassion, knowing it was a scary situation for us. As importantly, he was strong yet respectful with the prosecutor, and thus was able to work the negotiations to get us the best possible outcome. His assistant, Adam, is also very kind and helpful. you can certainly hire this firm with confidence.

Truly outstanding expertise
David and his firm were simply outstanding. Thoughtful, creative, realistic, pragmatic, and fair. Clearly a subject matter expert in motor vehicle matters. While I would prefer to never need his services again, I would absolutely be a return customer.

Patience and Candor
My son and I worked with David on a Careless Driving incident that was not correct. With our pictures and David's research, he was able to get our issue lowered to small infraction that won't hurt my sons insurance costs. He spent nearly 1:30 hours with us going over the account, pictures, police report etc and was fully prepared on court day. Great Job David and team.

Accident
I hired him to help with a speeding ticket and a car accident. He was very knowledgeable and I did not ever have to go to court. He met with the prosecutor in my place. I was very pleased with his work as he decreased both my tickets. He was very pleasant and kind through it all.

Solid professional
Mr Colt explained my case and expectations in detail as well as guiding me through the process. The result was beyond my personal expectations. I am a cdl holder, which made fighting this case of particular importance. I'm appreciative of his concern and commitment to see my case through.
