Clients are my top priority!
My practice emphasizes all areas of personal injury, criminal defense, and civil litigation from pre-filing representation through trial. I have brought more than 50 cases to verdict in Colorado. My personal injury practice has encompassed auto accidents, construction defects, premises liability, and bad faith denial of claims. I have also defended clients facing criminal charges with possible penalties ranging from small fines to life imprisonment.
I am licensed to practice law before all Colorado State Courts, the United States District Court for the District of Colorado, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. My goal is to educate my clients and ensure that they receive the best possible results. I work hard to inform my clients in what to expect at each stage of the process and avoid unwelcome surprises. To achieve this goal, I give each client the time and attention they need, while aggressively defending their rights. I bring a combination of inventiveness, persistence, and genuine friendliness to my practice. Add my reputation for professionalism and integrity, and it’s easy to see how I continue to earn the respect of prosecutors and other attorneys across the state. Experience has shown that my professional approach can streamline a case—allowing the client to achieve more beneficial results.
I received my undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Political Science from the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 2002 and my law degree from the University of Cincinnati in 2007. During law school, I clerked for the litigation section of the City of Cleveland Department of Law. Additionally, I worked for United Agri Products, lnc., as an intern to the Tax Department. I also interned for Judge Robbins in a criminal division of the Denver District Court. After law school, I prosecuted municipal ordinance violations as an intern to the Prosecution and Code Enforcement section of the Denver City Attorney’s Office until accepting the position of Deputy District Attorney for the 13th Judicial District.
