This attorney saved my son.
Two years ago my world was turned upside down. My college aged son found himself charged with DUI and numerous other charges. I interviewed three highly rated lawyers and decided to hire Care. This was the best decision I ever made. She was very knowledgeable and compassionate about our situation. Honestly, she helped me as much mentally during this difficult experience as she did legally. Care always kept us informed and up to date on our options and possible outcomes. Granted no lawyer can predict the future, but the outcomes were exactly what she predicted, which was very good.
Thank you Care for your support and legal expertise. We could not of made it without you.

This attorney did not do the job this attorney was hired by me to do to provide defense services and caused an ongoing nightmare instead. If there was a way to give no stars in this review, I would, but Avvo seems to require you give at least one star.
There is absolutely no bad intention here. There is absolutely no intention to cause any distress to anyone or to cause any harm or damage. This is merely an attempt to help others avoid a similar nightmare by sharing what happened when this attorney was hired in this case. Every statement made in this review can be confirmed with actual documentation.
When this attorney worked on the case, so many things were billed for, it seemed like if you breathe in front of this attorney, you will be charged. Based on the experience in this case, if you are not careful, this attorney may take you for as much of your money as possible, as it happened in this particular case. Reading the other reviews here, you will see that others also mention this same behavior causing them also to conclude that they had been taken for their money.
A good attorney will also protect all of your rights and this attorney demonstrated in this case that this attorney simply didn't care, no matter what was said. Facing the legal system is the scariest thing anyone can ever go through and while it was happening, instead of being truly helpful, this attorney practiced emotional manipulation. This attorney pretended to care on a personal level, while at the same time, spilling out all sorts of details about this attorney’s personal life, which served to further the ongoing emotional manipulation. Again, all of these experiences are documented.
If you talk to other attorneys or read the Colorado code of ethics yourself, you will find information that says that it is inappropriate and unethical for an attorney to behave as if she or he is emotionally attached to a client like that and it likely affects the level of professional services you receive as a client. Along with pretending to actually care on a personal level, this attorney lied outright about what was being done on the case instead of doing a complete job to protect all legal rights. By the time the lies were uncovered in this case, it was too late to prevent the tremendous amount of damage that this attorney inflicted.
Based on the documented experience from this case here, if you decide to ever consider hiring this attorney, it’s advisable that you make sure that you get very specific information about the type of experience this attorney actually has. As it turned out, this attorney had almost no actual legal experience other than being a judge and a prosecutor and was simply overwhelmed with defending this case. Instead of admitting the lack of ability to handle it and turning it over to another attorney who was better equipped to handle the case, this attorney used the case as an opportunity to take as much money as possible.
This attorney in this case had very limited actual experience defending people when hired for this case and being a prosecutor and a judge is very different. If you look up reports about this attorney as a judge, you will find documented that this attorney was found to be "arrogant." In the case here, it was obvious from the documentation that nothing had changed with this attorney. Compounding the damage inflicted by this attorney in this case, this attorney violated legally protected client confidentiality on several significant occasions and didn’t seem to have any understanding of what protecting a client’s confidentiality and full range of legal rights meant. Based on the documented experience with this case here, it’s advisable to be very careful about trusting this attorney.

I got myself in to some troublea few months back. I almost caught a charge that would have cost me my job and would have made my life a living hell. I didn't know what to do but knew I need a lawyer. I googled how to pick a lawyer. The advice that made the most sense came down to two options. Find somebody who has experience in the court you will be going to, or sit in on some court sessions to fin a lawyer that is kicking some butt. I didn't have the luxury of sitting in court and most reviews of local lawyers were less than great. At the time Care had only good reviews and was also a judge in the court I was going to for 8 years. Anyway, my experience was good. It wasn't perfect but I would use Care again. On a personal level I think Care is a good person and did an amazing job for me. I honestly think if I hired anyone else my outcome would have been much different. I was so close to getting in big trouble. The negative is the paralegal that works with Care misinformed me on some very important information that could have gotten me into a lot of trouble. She also shredded the initial notes by mistake that Care had taken and then charged me her hourly rate to retake the notes so I wasn't to happy about that. None the less in my opinion if you were on the fence about which lawyer to hire I would take a leap of faith and give Care a shot.

Care Enichen is a master of the court room. I have several friends who have been attorneys; including one who was a prosecutor and assistant state attorney general, but most of them pale in comparison to her.
She is a quick-study: incisive and engaging. Her experience as a superior court judge for sixteen years and her stint as an assistant DA under former Boulder County District Attorney Alex Hunter, gives her invaluable insight to any court system in Colorado. This was readily apparent in my trial as her well-formed questions continually defied the District Attorney's chance at objecting to her line(s) of questioning.
Her pretrial preparation with me was superb. As I was to testify on my behalf, she worked tirelessly with me to form the right answers in my defense and to strongly present my case to the jury.
If you are facing felony charges or even a misdemeanor I would urge you to consider Ms Enichen.
I can not thank her enough for her efforts and her unfailingly belief in my innocence.

Care Enichen is a highly skilled, experienced attorney. She was very committed to my college-aged son’s DWAI case and gave careful attention to both him and his legal needs. Care took the time to explain the process and possible outcomes involved in the case, so we always had a realistic view of where we stood. She was readily available and responded promptly any time my son or I had questions or concerns. Along with her legal expertise, she continuously showed us great compassion and offered us remarkable emotional support, as she was truly vested in my son’s well-being. After the court proceedings, Care also remained involved with my son’s progress during his probation period. Consequently, her dedicated work resulted in a favorable outcome during a difficult time for my son. Without any doubt, I strongly recommend Care’s services to others with legal issues.

While a very nice person and clearly a good communicator, Care did little more for me than I could have done for myself and she was very expensive. Not a second went by that wasn't charged for, even idle chit chat on the phone. Very disappointed.

Care represented me on a careless driving charge. She did a great job keeping me updated on every phase of the case, from arraignment to pre-trail conference to the actual trial. She explained what happened with every step so I understood what to expect.
She always explained very clearly what my rights were as well as the risks and potential rewards of every decision I made (ie, when entering a plea, when negotiating a plea bargain, when accepting restitution risk, etc). I like to make very informed decisions, and like to assess every potential risk from all angles. Care helped me to thoroughly assess every decision point and make the best decision for me. She was very realistic, and never sugar coated potential outcomes. It's very important that you make these decisions well informed with a realistic sense of poetential outcome when going through this process, Care really enabled that.
I would recommend Care to any potential client. She genuinely has her clients best interest in mind, is a great communicator, and is very patient with those of us not famaliar with the proceedings.

Care and her team listened carefully to my questions and my story. Their communications with me were thoughtful and thorough, as well as warm and friendly. I could not have asked for better results in this case! Though I was dealing with a hearing from out of state, every detail was handled completely and I was never concerned about their follow-through. I have since recommended Care to a friend and he has had the same high quality experience.

I was not satisfed at all, I felt this attorney was too busy to make me a priority. I would wait days for questions to be answered or for a response from the other party.
