Client Review
I had need of an attorney and found Brandon Luna. I spoke briefly with Brandon Luna and described my situation. He relayed that he had experience in similar cases. We hired Bandon Luna. He reviewed my situation and came up to speed very, very quickly - he did not invoice for many, many hours. Brandon Luna met with me and shared his strategy. He was spot-on. He arrived at the court appearance and very quickly was able to get one charge dismissed and the other vacated. Brandon Luna is a good attorney with the skill and knowledge to get me through a difficult situation quickly and reasonably.

Great Lawyer
Brandon took my restitution case in the middle and came in and won my case for me. He was very knowledgeable and confident in his ability to swing the court in favor of my defense. He worked magic in the courtroom and saved me hundreds of thousands of dollars and made it look so easy. If I ever need another lawyer my first call will be to Brandon Luna because I’ve seen this man at work and if you need a good lawyer your first call should be to Mr. Luna

The hero I never knew I might need!
Once I made the choice to have legal representation and was fortunate enough to hire Brandon, the hardest part was done for me. After reading his reviews and seeing his work history I felt confident that I was in very competent hands. I think a defense attorney that has been a successful DA is invaluable if you find yourself in the unfortunate position to need legal assistance. Having an open case is very stressful, but watching Brandon work has actually been it's own kind of joy. He saw the path to resolution very early on, always responded to my concerns, input and questions, and was amazingly successful at helping me find peace of mind in the midst of my most stressful life experience yet. I think the man is a rock, and one with a kind heart! He will most certainly be my recommendation if I talk with others who will benefit from his skill.

A good lawyer is a blessing!
The hardest thing for a parent is to have a child in trouble. The biggest blessing in the event you are faced with this is to have a lawyer you trust and can successfully and competently guide you through the legal process. Brandon Luna was this for us. His help and expertise will forever be appreciated by our entire family. We are grateful to him.

Best DUI Lawyer in Town
I was arrested and released on a PR bond for accusations of speeding, DUI and having open containers of alcohol in the car. Brandon and his team were so professional that he managed to dismiss the DUI and open container charges and also reduce the speeding fines. He also waived my appearance for the hearing which was a difficult task after being released on a "Personal Recognization" bond. Best lawyer in Colorado. Would highly recommend him for any of your cases. Even his team (Carlyn) at Luna Law was highly professional regarding all the payments. If I had an option of giving more than 5 stars, would have done that too Cheers to the great team! Hope you keep doing wonders :)

Worth every penny
I hired Mr. Luna immediately after consultation to represent me against a false accusation. He was professional and overwhelmingly fair in his advice and his fee. He took my interests to heart and represented me exactly as I preferred. He is experienced and prompt and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a fair opinion and/or excellent representation.

Great attorney!
I was referred to Brandon Luna by my husbands lawyer Kent Leier. He dealt with my case with utmost professionalism and made me aware of the best available options. He is extremely realistic in his approach, and prioritizes the needs of his clients. I would definitely recommend him to other friends and family.

Great DUI defense
I'm very happy that I hired Brandon as my attorney to defend the DUI I received in Gunnison thus summer. He was able to negotiate a more-than-fair deal with the DA, and also helped me regain my driver's license. He remembered fine details of my case after only meeting him once, which was evident in my hearings. He was also ever-present via phone/email/text whenever I had questions regarding my case. I highly recommend him if you find yourself in the aftermath of a horrible mistake.

BEST DECISION I MADE after a terrible mistake
Like many of you probably reading lawyer reviews right now after getting a DUI/DWAI I was scared and upset and ready to talk with just about anyone about my case. I called several lawyers in the area and they all said the same thing, "we are going to fight till the end and your record will be clean "blah blah blah" and honestly, it felt like many lawyers were making empty promises. Colorado DUI laws are tough and if you are truly guilty in your situation no amount of money is going to get you out of it, you have to live with the consequences. With that being said, when I first talked to Brandon Luna I could tell that he was honest, he didn't give me false expectations but he did say he would look for anything he could find to help me out and that's what he did. While the criminal case was pretty much set in stone (i had in fact done the deed) he negotiated a plea bargain and made me feel so much better everytime we were in court. It felt like I could just leave him to worry about the problem and continue to focus on my work. There were several times where I couldn't be at court and he was there on my behalf. As for the DMV I was charged with a persistent drunk driving charge that would have resulted in a two-year interlock requirement despite the fact that my second blood test came back under the limit of .15 (the threshold considered for PDD). It was a rough day but Brandon saw flaws in the way the hearing officer dealt with my case and explained that we had a shot at an appeal. He worked so hard on the appeal, kept me updated throughout the process, and kept my expectations in check--which is really important when you are dealing with something like this. You could say he was like my DUI spirit guide if you will. Anyways when all was said and done we actually won the appeal saving me a significant amount of time and money that would have gone towards having the device in my car for two years. I am so glad that money went to Brandon versus the court. Like I said hiring him was the best decision I could have made after doing something stupid. The criminal system is scary and really complicated, and there are certain things that are hard to know without a lawyer by your side--I'm certainly glad Brandon was by mine.

Couldn't be happier
When I got busted I keep thinking my life was over. That my mistake would follow me all my life but then I got in contact with Brandon. From there everything changed. He took over my case with a reassuring smile and genuine kindness. He did everything regarding my case so that I wouldn't have to lift a finger unless absolutely necessary. Which not only put my mind to ease but allowed me to get on with my life knowing that everything would be okay. Today I can proudly say that this is true. Couldn't have gotten a better lawyer. I hope I never have to have him represent me again but I do I will call Brandon without hesitation everytime.

Best attorney on western slope
Brandon is the shark in a fish tank. He answers our phone calls night or day holiday or not. He is always there and has been our life vest in our sinking ship. We trust him with our lives. He is working multiple cases for our family and I can always count on him to be there, he definitely shows up when others don't. He is honest and very straight forward if he thinks we have a case or not. He never would put our family in harms way. I have recommended him to other people and they have had the same luck as my family!

Top Notch
Brandon is a very good lawyer. I received my first DUI and he was able to drop it down to a DWAI and get me all the minimums. Brandon knew the ins and outs of the whole process and helped me through every step. Having Brandon's guiding hand greatly reduced my stress throughout the anxious time period of waiting for sentencing. This has greatly helped me in not allowing one dumb decision to ruin the rest of my life and moving forward in the easiest way possible. I would recommend maybe not paying the extra fee to get his assistance in the dmv trial unless you think you have solid grounds for the breathalyzer to have been illegally used on you or you had a low BAC.

Brandon Luna Client Review
Brandon Luna has been my attorney for the past several years, and he has assisted me with several legal issues. I had never had a need to work with an attorney before, and I was fortunate to be able to work with such a professional individual. Brandon took the needed steps to resolve my legal issues, and he will continue to be my personal attorney in the future. I have recommended Brandon to multiple people who were in need of an attorney, and will continue to do so in the future. He is a top notch attorney.

Satisfied, Elated Client of Brandon Luna, Luna Law
I was extremely fortunate to locate Brandon Luna, Luna Law, on his website while searching for an attorney to represent me for a speeding ticket. I could have picked anyone, but his credentials convinced me he was the best person I could choose to handle my case. Let's face it, a speeding ticket is rather cut and dried, right? Wrong! This fine, young man drove three hours, each way to appear in court for me in Montezuma County. I think it's important to mention the judge was quite taken with Mr Luna's approach, and, with a smile, welcomed him back to her courtroom "anytime". Professional? Absolutely! His fee-for-services? Spot on! I highly recommend Brandon Luna's legal experience and court appearance, to represent you when needed. Brandon also performed investigative work for me, in a Juvenile case against my son. He doesn't know it yet, but I'm about to have him defend someone else for a false charge in Arizona!
