Bruce helped me maneuver through the rip currents of a complicated DUI charge and probation violation. When I came to Bruce I was facing possible jail time and feeling hopeless. The outcome was much better than I could have hoped for. In addition, he's provided legal assistance to both my son and my daughter. Bruce is a rare individual and a great lawyer. I'm honored to know him.

When I was seeking out a criminal defense attorney, I called Mr. Sarbaugh and he immediately returned my call. When I spoke to him, he was upfront and honest about the fees he charges, and let me know what to expect from CO law based on my charge. He was knowledgeable and showed the utmost genuine concern for me as his client. He was always responsive to my calls and informative on what to expect throughout the pretrial - trial timeframe. He handled my case effectively with an aggressive approach, again displaying genuine concern for the well being of his client. Mr. Sarbaugh is a debonair professional with a down-to-earth demeanor, which makes him a great attorney. He deserves the highest degree of accolades and praise. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney.

Bruce saved me. I was charged with multiple DUIs, my career dreams were dead in the water, then Bruce did some magic. He got the judge to grant five continuances (that's insane for mere DUIs), litigating the charges over eight months, before finally accepting a technically-illegal plea deal I still can barely believe he got, although it honestly was the only outcome I could have lived with. He knows all the judges and assistant DA's, which arguments will persuade who—plus how to get your charges moved into Courtroom 9 or Division 6, what have you, so that you're facing the optimal people. He’s got some legal acuity about him—and that was underscored even further when I later went to him again with some much more serious trouble; he knows what he’s doing. But it's not that he's the only legal expert in Boulder, it's his people skills, and I saw firsthand that's the key with the law. He'll get you the best outcome you possibly can get, plea or trial.
Bruce went above and beyond around and back again for me. He's a compassionate advocate not just your lawyer, a passionate servant of justice. He's a must.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Sarbaugh is a true champion for his clients. I have consulted with him and brainstormed with him on various strategies and can without any equivocation fully endorse this fantastic attorney.
