Great DUI Lawyer in Colorado Springs
I was arrested for DUI while visiting Colorado Springs last month. I had only had 2 beers and the officer said he pulled me over for a "faulty" taillight. Mr. Moran immediately challenged the accuracy of both the reason for the stop (nothing was wrong with either taillight) and the alledged .005 BAC the officer claimed I registered. Mr. Moran's investigators found that this officer's certification to operate that particular device was not current and up to date, and an independent auto shop certified that there were no issues with taillights. Thanks to Mike Moran's help , my DUI case was dismissed entirely in a pre-trial hearing by the judge.

Best attorney in Colorado Springs
Mike is a great lawyer and straight-forward which is very absent these days. He really came through for me when I lost all hope and I would highly recommend him

Great knowledge gets good results!
Michael Moran is a great lawyer! Not only does Mr. Moran have the proper professional knowledge of the laws of the land and how the system works but he got me positive results with my case. All the time, energy, research and studying that was invested into my case deserves a 5 star rating. I definitely appreciate the concern shown in his work of what would be in the best interest of my livelihood. I strongly recommend this law firm whoever may come across this review and seeking some help from a lawyer with their case.

Dui charge.
Mike helped me out a lot when I got my dui. He prepped me ahead of time with dui classes community service classes and gave the ins and outs of what can possibly happen. He was able to keep me working. I recommend for any one to hire him if needed.

Mike is a WINNER
Mike is the BEST! He masterfully navigated the court and is an encyclopedia of legal knowledge. He excelled in pretrial motions, dominated in trial, and achieved my desired outcome faster than I thought possible. I'm honored to have had his representation.

Great experience working with Moran Law
Hi hired Moran Law to defend me on a DUI charge. Mike not only has a great grasp of the law, but more importantly knows the people and personalities of the people that will be making decisions about your case. We set a realistic goal for the best outcome, and we’re able to achieve that result. They guided me every step of the way and removed much of the stress and anxiety I was dealing with.

I couldn’t advocate for Mike Moran more!!!
Mr. Moran, took my open and shut case and fought tooth and nail for a much more beneficial outcome than I could have hoped for. My case was just about dropped completely!!! I would recommend him to anyone with a similar case. All of his services, including his amazingly helpful staff, come at an extremely reasonable cost. Thank you Mr. Moran and associates!

Hit a grand slam for me!
I hired Mike to help with an old case that was coming up on background checks and causing me problems with clients. After another lawyer took my money and did nothing, Mike took care of the situation in a very timely manner, and it made all the difference. He knows the law and the legal system. He’s efficient and very effective. He told me straight up what obstacles were involved with my unique circumstances, laid out a plan of action, then dealt with the issue and got the job done. I highly recommend him and will not hesitate to hire him again should the need arise.

I was in a very bad situation and facing many years in prison for a false DV charge. I chose Mike to represent me from a close friend's recommendation. BEST choice I have ever made ! Mike was very professional and a BEAST in the courtroom ! The case was dismissed. Perfect job Mike

best most honest in town
Mr. Moran did mot judge me and when he broke down my options he gave clear and concise answers to every question i had. He helped me turn my dui with a host of other charges including leaving the scene and causing damage to 2 cars into a standard dwai. He also got another case dropped completely where other lawyers said they could only help me plea down. He utilizes his years of experience and connections to get you the best result possible and he never misinforms or misleads. He is upfront with what will happen depending on the choices i made. Following hos advise and hiring him was one of the best decisons i ever made. Thank you again Michael! You saved my life.

Best Attorney in Colorado Springs Bar None!
If you're facing a DUI or any other Criminal case. You would be crazy not to have Mike Moran represent you! He is a down to earth guy and will work extremely hard to keep out of jail. A couple friends told me about Mike and how good he was, so not taking any chance to go to jail over some DUI's, I listened and hired the best & today I'm a happy man! I can't tell you enough how Thankful I am Mike! Your awesome!

Excellent, honest and professional representation
In January 2016 I was charged with a DUI along with additional charges totaling 50 points. I also had a pending charge for careless driving resulting in an accident. I retained Mike and his team who had represented my daughter in a previous case. Mike agreed to be my attorney and gave me an incredible rate as a returning customer. More importantly, he handled my case with incredible professionalism and patience . I have a tendency towards impatience, but Mike was able to guide me through the process with literally no stress. The outcome was phenomenal and beyond my most extreme expectation. I understand why he has been voted top DUI attorney in Colorado Springs the last 2 years. With his guidance and understanding of the system, I was able to finish most of the ultimate sentence well before my actual sentencing. I highly recommend anyone to retain Mike Moran if ever you need DUI representation. Thanks again Mike and Therese. David
