Steven Rodemer is consistently recognized as one of the premier Criminal and DUI Defense attorneys in the State of Colorado. Having been born and raised in Colorado, Steve attended Cornell College, where he earned a Bachelor’s of Science Degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. He then attended California Western School of Law in San Diego, where he was completed an internship with the California Innocence Project and then worked with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, one of the nation’s most prestigious prosecutor’s offices. 

Steve returned to Colorado and accepted a position as a Deputy District Attorney in the Fourth Judicial District (El Paso and Teller Counties) As a Deputy DA, Steve initially prosecuted DUI cases, serious traffic offenses, domestic violence cases, and other misdemeanors. He was promoted to the felony prosecution unit, where he prosecuted a wide range of felony cases from simple theft and drug cases, to homicides and assaults. Finally, Steve was assigned a coveted position as a member of the Vehicular Homicide/Vehicular Assault team, where he vertically prosecuted fatal traffic accidents, DUI and reckless driving charges resulting in death and serious bodily injury, and homicides. Before leaving the DA’s Office, Steve received the “Tradition of Excellence” Award.

Following several years as a Deputy DA, Steve joined McDowell, Laybourne & Rodemer, LLC as a partner in criminal defense and, after being with the firm for several years, Steve began his own practice. Today, Steve is widely recognized as one of the premier trial attorneys in the State of Colorado. He has been named as one of the Top 40 Attorneys Under 40 by the National Trial Lawyers every year since 2012; in 2013, 2014 and 2015 he was named as one of the "Top 100 DUI Attorney's" by the National Advocacy for DUI Defense. In both 2014 and 2015, Steve was named as a "Rising Star" by SuperLawyers, an honor reserved for only 2.5% of attorneys statewide, encompassing every practice area. In 2015, Steve was the only DUI attorney selected statewide to receive this honor. Being selected by SuperLawyers is widely regarded by attorneys and judges as one of the most coveted distinctions an attorney can receive during their career. In fact, many law school rankings consider the number of alumni selected by SuperLawyers every year as an indication of the quality of attorneys the law school produces. Steve has been selected by the National Academy of Criminal Defense Lawyers as one of the Top 10 Attorneys Under 40 in Colorado, and in 2015, Steve was named as one of the 10 Best Attorneys in Colorado by the American Institute of Criminal Law Attorneys. His firm was also named one of the 10 Best Law Firms in the Colorado by the American Institue of Criminal Law Attorneys. Moreover, because of his undergraduate education in biochemistry, Steve understands the science behind modern forensic analysis (including chemical testing of blood for alcohol and drugs, and breath testing for alcohol), and he is able to use that to his clients advantage. He is a member of the prestigious National College for DUI Defense, and holds the rating of “Superb” by Avvo, as well as many other awards and recognitions. Steve is a member of the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, and the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar Association. Steve has tried nearly every type of criminal case, and he continues to do so on a very regular basis, with outstanding results. Steve regularly receives inviations to speak to both legal and non-legal groups about various aspects of criminal law. When not in the courtroom, Steve is an avid golfer.

Life saver!
I was being falsely accused and needed an experienced lawyer fast. After speaking with Casey I felt confident I would get the help I needed. I was very scared and did not know what to expect. Aaron was always so calm and reassuring the countless times I called. Steve and Casey both did an excellent job at representing me! I was hoping to get it all dropped but figured it was a long shot. In the end everything was dismissed. I was so relieved and shocked, I couldn't believe it. I sincerely give all my thanks to Steve and his team! They are life savers! Thank you!

Expert, Friendly, and 5 star-worthy Attorney
Mr. Rodemer and his team of legal gurus helped me with a legal case that I had no idea how to handle. Always on the front end of things, his team handled everything so that I never had to worry. Rodemer's staff reached out to us with constant updates and made sure we were knowledgable on what was happening. Mr. Rodemer's knowledge and experience along with his amazing staff has made them stand out, if you're in need and don't know who to call - this is your team.

Excellent Attorney!
Choosing the right lawyer can be intimidating. We were in a situation where we needed an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. I looked at dozens of websites and profiles, interviewed 4 lawyers in person, and Steve Rodemer was our top choice. We had a complex case and needed a skilled criminal defense attorney who was: versed in recent statute changes, aggressive, had excellent trial litigation skills, experienced with the unique complexities of the juvenile system, all without putting us into tremendous debt. In our initial consultation, he picked up the phone and talked directly to the ADA, giving us immediate answers and results. The process took nearly 10 months but Steve was there every step of the way. He did an exceptional job translating all the legal jargon, coaching us thru our appearances and ensuring we were satisfied with results. There is no one else I want on my side if I need to fight a battle again – he will be my first call. I strongly recommend Steve Rodemer to anyone who needs a lawyer.

A great team when you don't know where to turn
Steven and James where amazing. Our son was arrested and charged with a drug offence, a felony 1. He was looking at a mandtory 8 year minnium sentence. We where very scared and didn't know what to do. He was a drug addict, but he needed help. He wasn't a criminal and it was his first offence. I can't express how panicked we where when we called Stephen. He calmed us down over the phone and brought us is for a meeting. Steve and James took all the time we needed and explained all the possible outcomes. Then explained what was most likely. James was very patient with us and was always accessible. It was such a relief to have someone on our side. In the end they got our son in a drug program and probation. He has been clean and sober for 6 months and planning for a very bright future. I think this is exactly what he needed. Steve and James have both contacted us multiple times to check up on our son and see how he's been doing. I think that shows that they really care. Thinking back to that first day we learned what he was charged with I am so thankful we called Stephen. I just can't recommend them enough!!

Absolutely Amazing Attorney and Team
I am literally writing this review after my court appearance and while at work because of the amazing work Steve has taken throughout my court appearance. From the moment I hired Steve, he was available to answer any and all questions that I had. I was scared and very confused about the process and how it would go, yet Steve was always there. I went in and met with Steve and the communication was clear and concise on what to expect and when. He was very knowledgeable and very honest. I can say that my case was dismissed today and I cannot express in words how grateful I am. Steve is also backed by an amazing and caring team. I felt as if I annoyed them and yet they were always caring and available. Emily and Andy were also very communicable. If you are looking for an attorney, Steve is absolutely a great choice. I would refer him to any and everyone. He is well worth the investment.

Steve makes it happen. He's earned my trust 100%
I was referred to Steve from and attorney up Denver for a couple of pretty hefty charges. Steve was steady and pragmatic and exactly who I need to represent me and well being in a period of my life that was emotion ridden chaos to say least. Not only did Steve provide me legal advice, but also showed a genuine interest in helping me personally get through the most difficult, uncertain time in my life. Steve's ability to see situations from all angles, complete and thorough knowledge of the Law, and ability convey complex ideas in a methodical, logical fashion make Steve one of the most respected attorneys not judt by the judges but the DA'sas well, giving his clients a benefit they may not know they're getting and/or how very important those relationships are at the end of the day. I trust Steve wholy with a very importan and wouldnt be wroting this if didnt thinl t piece of my life and my subsequently my future as well as my daughter's futures. I am lucky to have been referred to Steve and feel as if I should pay it forward. Thank You For Fighting For Me Steve!

Most Confidnet Lawyer in Town
After being pulled over for a DUI Steve and his staff treated me with uptmost respect and dignity. This was my first legal trouble ever, Steve immeditly had a plan, laid it out and followed through. Steve was able to get my case dismissed which was beyond anyones expectations. He was able to answer any questions leaving me feeling confident about everything. Since I am on Active Duty Steve went above and beyond his contract and wrote a letter to my Chain of Command outlining all the mitigating circustances resulting in the dismissal. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone facing legal troubles.

BEST Criminal Defense Attorney in Colorado!
My father was initially charged with ​attempted murder in the 1st degree and 1st degree assault with a deadly weapon. Being that he's a latino man, he really stood no chance of winning—especially in Jefferson County, Colorado. Our previous attorney didn't really do anything to fight for my father. The only motion he ever filed was the motion to serve as the attorney on the case. He urged my father to take a deal that would've put him in state prison for 16-48 years. The night before my father was supposed to take the deal we were approached by a family member who suggested seeking council outside of Jefferson County. We found Steve online and called him at 8:00 on a Sunday evening. He answered the phone and after giving him a short explanation of my father's case he told me not to let my father take that deal. The next day my father fired his attorney before the court hearing, denied the deal, then hired Steve. It was the best decision my father has ever made in his entire life. From Steve's first day as my father's attorney he fought for justice and never stopped. Because of Jefferson County's harsh team of District Attorneys, we hit many road blocks. For almost year year on the case Steve and his team worked every single day to defeat the opposing side. They hired expert witnesses, did intense investigative work, and combed through hundreds, maybe even thousands of pages of evidence. As the trial week approached Steve and his team were ready well before the actual start date. They were prepared and confident. During trial Steve was professional, accurate with every single statement he made, and most importantly quick on his feet. He was able to combat every single thing the DA threw at him. By day one you could tell that Steve was a winner. And he was. My father was unanimously acquitted of ALL charges. Not only did Steve give my father his freedom and life back, but he proved to everyone that he was innocent since the beginning. Without Steve and his team I am sure my father would be sitting in prison right now, for the rest of his life. If you are considering hiring Steven Rodemer as your Criminal Defense Attorney I say consider no more. He is without a doubt the most hardworking, compassionate, and talented attorney in Colorado! Thank you Steve + Team for everything you do! You are truly a blessing!

Steve is the best lawyer in Colorado!!!
To put it bluntly, Steve saved my life. There really are no words to adequately express my gratitude to Steve and his incredible staff. So, to give this review teeth, I think you first need to know the seriousness of the charges. I was falsely and deliberately accused of horrible and unthinkable acts. Charged with attempted murder in the 1st degree and 1st degree assault with a deadly weapon. Never having been in any kind of trouble, my knowledge of the legal system was limited and naive at best. I honestly thought they would investigate and it would all be over in a few days. I was wrong. The first lawyer I hired wanted to “just make a deal” for 16-48 years in a state prison and collect his fee. The D.A. at Jefferson County...well let's just say I had completely lost my faith in the great American legal system. After I fired my first lawyer and refused to make a deal and admit guilt to something I did not do, my family and I started searching for a lawyer outside of Jefferson county. We found Steve Rodemer! From our first meeting he made me feel comfortable. I felt like I was with a Rugby buddy or sitting with my brother. I no longer felt like a case number or a file. Steve reminded me of the beauty of the American legal system. I am innocent until proven guilty. His confidence gave me confidence and more importantly, hope. Steve did more in the first week after taking my case then my previous lawyer did in the whole year of his so called representation of me. Steve and his staff conducted a full and thorough investigation of everything and everyone, including me. He filed multiple motions on my behalf. He interviewed potential expert witnesses. Hell, he probably could have been his own expert witness, with his exceptional understanding of forensics. At every pre-trial hearing I felt more and more confident having Steve standing next to me. I actually felt like I was being represented, like I actually had a voice In the system. Steve made only one promise - “I will fight all the way” and he did! The way Steve interacted with my children and I, made us feel like he was personally vested in our family and our future. Steve’s actions, his speech, his emotions, it all made us feel like he wasn't just fighting for his client, but fighting for a member of his family. One of his more impressive qualities is his quick thinking and flexibility, which he exhibited during trial quite effectively. The way Steve handled himself at the trial was professional and yet so human. His interaction with the judge, the jury and the prosecution was amazing to watch, considering he had very little knowledge of the inner workings of Jefferson County courts. In the end, thanks to Steve and months of hard work, he and his team put in, the jury came back with a full acquittal, NOT GUILTY on all charges. When I tried to thank him, he just looked at me with that sideways grin of his and said - “I knew you were innocent, I just had to show them that...” Well Steve showed them! He executed his duties as my advocate with honor, class, dignity and professionalism. I owe Steve Rodemer a debt of gratitude I can never repay. Thank you Steve, Emily, Andy and the rest of your amazing staff!

Couldn't have done better
Steve did a great job on our sons cases. He was charged with three domestic cases, which were all lies. All three cases were also dismissed. Steve never even suggested that we take a plea, and each time the DA would make a better offer, Steve would explain it, then say, "I can't recommend you do that, we can get these dismissed." While it would have been much easier to talk my son into a deal, he never even suggested it, but just kept fighting, until eventually, all three cases were dismissed. He's the guy you want in your corner.

Steven Rodemer saved my future
Steven Rodemer is no doubt the best way to go. He actually cares about who he represents and goes way out of his way to assure that clients are happy. I was worried about what was going to happen to my name and my future until I hired Steven. After talking to him on our first meeting I was completely at ease. You CANNOT go wrong hiring him, if you're in a situation that you need legal help, the smart move would be to hire Steven. I assure you that you will be thankful you did. He saved my name and my future! Steven went way out of his way to buy me a home surveillance system because of the issues I was having with an ex. What attorney do you know that is as professional as Steven and actually cares so much about his clients to do something like this?.... Exactly. Even a year down the road after everything blew over, Steven contacted me to make sure I was okay and everything was going smoothly for me. What a guy, such a great guy. Thanks Steven, thank you so much.

The Best!!
Mr Rodemer was a true blessing to me and my family. He was truthful, respectful and very professional. He was in my corner with full support and the know how to make things happen in my best interest. I am a Soldier and he knew how things would affect me and how important it was to remain in the military with my Honor intact. He has a vast knowledge of the civilian side of law and even more knowledge of the military side. I will not tell everyone about the details of my case but, end statement: “I am still in the military with no records on my name; I owe nothing to the state or anyone else”.  I thank Mr Rodemer for everything he has done for me and my family. God bless you Sir!

Thoroughly impressed, don't look anywhere else
I was falsely accused of domestic violence by my now ex-wife, while we were going through our divorce. I was charged with a very serious felony, and as soon as I was released, I began to research domestic violence laws. One of the first things I found was an article written by Steve. My charges were in Denver, so I started looking at attorneys up there, but after meeting with several respected attorneys, I wasn't impressed. Sure, they all were intelligent, but none seemed passionate about my case. Remembering Steve's article I read, I decided to meet with him, even though he was in the Springs. The difference was night and day. It was evident that Steve really cared, it was refreshing. I hired him on the spot. 4 months later, after doing exactly everything he said needed to be done at our first meeting, my case was dismissed. In fact, Steve did such a good job proving the charges were based on lies, my ex-wife was charged with false reporting and influencing an official. All the attorneys I had initially met with told me that was nearly impossible, and I should just "worry about myself", but I thought it was so unfair. So did Steve and he pursued it. I can safely say, Steve is probably the most capable criminal defense attorney in the state. I so grateful to him for saving everything that is important to me, including the custody of my children. Thank you Steve.

A tremendous help
I needed a lawyer, never had dealt with the courts or anything related and didn't know where to start looking. I found Steve via referral from another lawyer who no longer works in the Colorado Springs area. He gave Steve highest marks, so I gave Steve a shot. Was I lucky or what? Steve gave me honest, thoughtful advice from the beginning. He told me the alternatives and the costs and the likelihood of success. It is very apparent that his previous experience makes him extremely knowledgeable about specifically the courts in El Paso county. I give him highest marks.

Steve Literally Saved My Career
I hired Steve after my wife and I were arguing, and my neighbors called the police. I had thrown my cell phone on the ground out of frustration, but I hadn't laid a finger on her. Still, enormously stupid. I was arrested for breaking my phone for "criminal mischief". I saw the judge, bonded out, and immediately began looking for an attorney. Steve was the first one I met with, but immediately liked him. He put me at ease right away by explaining what would really happen, not what could happen, worst case. He told me a number of different scenarios, but made it clear, he couldn't tell me what the outcome would be until he saw the police reports, I was impressed that he didn't try to promise me the moon. I had already made an appointment with a few other attorneys, and decided I would meet with everyone first, before deciding who to hire. I met with three other local attorneys, and truthfully, none held a candle to Steve. They may do a fine job, but they lacked the personality and ability to communicate, something Steve had in spades. I went back that same day and hired Steve. He charged me a flat fee which was in line with the other quotes I received, but he gave me a discount for paying the whole fee rather than doing a payment plan. The next day I went to work, and because of my employers policy, I had to tell them about the arrest. When I did, I was suspended while they did their investigation. The told me it would be at least a month before they got the reports from the police. I called Steve and by the end of the day, he had gotten the police reports to my employer. We hadn't even been to court, but he called the DA and explained the situation, and they got him the reports. The next week, we went to court and it was apparent I had made the right decision. He had a great rapport with everyone. The DA's spoke with him as if they were old friends, and they listened to what he had to say. The judge's clerks were asking about his kids, and they knew about his family life, then when the judge came in, he called Steve first, and they had a friendly banter. The judge was joking with him in court in front of everyone. Steve delivered the exact offer he told me he thought we could get, a pre-plea investigation. He guided me through that process by making the appointments for me, meeting with me before each appointment, following up with the counselor, and when we got the report 42 days before court, he got the DA and the judge to add my case on early, despite already having other cases, Steve knew how important this was to me and accommodated me. The whole process took 27 days from start to finish. We went to court and the DA filed a motion to dismiss the case, two days before thanksgiving. When we were leaving, the judge told Steve to tell his wife "hi" and have a great thanksgiving. Steve is the real deal, its obvious he's well respected by everyone involved in the process, and its obvious why he is in high demand. I couldn't be more grateful. My case was dismissed before my job even finished their investigation, which ended when I gave them a copy of the motion to dismiss. I was immediately reinstated at my job. Steve delivered even more than I thought was possible. Despite being a negative experience because of finding myself in this process, Steve was a shining light. I would glowingly recommend him to anyone who would listen. I'm so glad I found him, I don't believe anyone else could have done what he did for me.

I'm very impressed with my whole experience
I should start off by saying, I've never been in trouble before, but I made a horrible mistake and got in a car when I shouldn't have. I thought the DA's office would consider my past and I could take care of the problem myself. However, when I went to my first court date and sat down in a little office, alone with a DA, I felt powerless and bullied, it became apparent that I needed someone on my side, at least to guide me through the case. I called about 6 attorney's, all of whom claim to specialize in DUI. 4 of them called me back, and I ended up meeting with 3 of them. One attorney wanted $9,000.00, which I thought was very high. I ended up meeting with Steve last, but after talking to the other 2 attorneys, Steve was a breath of fresh air. When I got to Steve's office, he was meeting with another client, but when they came out, I overhead Steve ask the gentleman how a recent family vacation went. I was struck by the fact that he knew details about this man's life like that, I got the impression that he wasn't trying to rush the guy out the door to get on with his next appointment, but rather, he was taking the time to learn about his clients life. When I sat down with him and explained my case, he walked me through the process, both what could happen to my license and what could happen at court. When I asked him what would happen to me, he made no guarantees, but told me different possible outcomes that could happen, this was in contrast to the 2 other attorneys I met with, both guaranteed me outcomes, but surprisingly the both promised different outcomes, but sounded to good to be true. Steve said he couldn't do that, he hadn't seen the police reports and would need to read those before telling me what the likely outcome was. I immediately could tell I could trust him, he wasn't going to make me promises that sounded to good to be true so I'd hire him, but told me the truth from the beginning. His price seemed very reasonable and after talking to me wife, I hired him. Throughout my case, I always knew what was happening. I could always log onto his computer system to see all of the documents filed, police reports, court dates and emails. My calls were always returned. The one phone call that he didn't return the same day, he was in trial on another case and had his paralegal Emily call me with the answer. Emily told me Steve was in trial and she had asked him my question, but told me he'd call me in the morning, to make sure my question was answered. Sure enough, first thing in the morning Steve called and apologized for taking so long to get back to me. It hasn't even been a day and he had already answered me. The entire experience was better than I thought it would be. The outcome was better than I expected and I was treated with respect throughout. Steve becomes your friend during the case, but what impressed me the most and caused me to write this was that my case ended in March. This past week I got an email from him checking in on me and making sure I didn't have any questions and everything I needed to do was getting done. Steve really exceeded my expectations, he goes above and beyond. I would highly recommend Steve, it's obvious to me that he's elite in his field, it's really the little things that make the difference. Thank you Steve.

Steve's a great attorney
Steve got my case dismissed before it was even in court. I was arrested, booked into jail and bonded out. They set my first court date for two weeks after I bonded out, and after meeting with and researching several attorneys, I hired Steve. He had ideas and thought of things no one else did, and from the day I hired him, to my first court date, he had 10 days. He met with the DA, scheduled a polygraph and accompanied me to it, he and an investigator meet with all the witnesses and put together a very good defense. When he and I met with the DA the second time, two days before court, the DA agreed not to file any charges, the case was dismissed. Steve's one of those attorneys that you normally don't find in my experience. He did everything he said he would and I felt like he actually cared about me. I would never hire anyone else.

Couldn't be happier
I hired Steve to represent me on a DUI that was complicated by my prior mistakes. Needless to say, I was facing significant consequences and after meeting with the DA, I knew I needed help. I was referred to Steve and I'm so glad I was. My case was completely dismissed. He and Emily are so nice, they always returned calls, and always kept me up to date. I was also able to login to a website where I could see everything in my case, court dates, and everything being done. First class operation.

Steven Rodemer is the best choice!
I decided to choose Steven Rodemer to represent me in my D.V. case. I was falsely accused of many different actions by my ex girlfriend and her sister. I felt like I was looked at as guilty before I even got the chance to explain my side of the story. My stress levels were through the roof to the point I was losing sleep and not eating. Both girls were fighting for a permanent restraining order against me. This is when Steven came in the picture. Steven explained the entire process to me and was very detailed about his descriptions. Immediately my stress levels were decreasing from the reassurance of this very well educated man. He is very professional and yet is so easy to talk to, Steven actually cares about his clients. In the end of my case everything went my way thanks for the back-up of Steven Rodemer. Trust me, if you're stressed out about your case and you're looking for the right attorney to back you up, stop looking right now because you found your best option. You will NOT regret taking Steven for your case.
