"A Bill of Rights is what the people are entitled to against every government, and what no just government should refuse, or rest on inference." Thomas Jefferson
These words about our Constitutional rights have framed my criminal defense practice. I firmly believe in serving my clients and my community by ensuring that the government does not attempt to take away that which the Founding Fathers granted you.
I have always served my community and attempted to help those in need. Prior to law school, I worked as a paramedic in many different settings including various rescue and teaching positions as well as serving on a SWAT team in Texas. These experiences provided me with many unique opportunities that I have used to my clients' benefit.
During law school, I worked in the District Attorney's office as well as a major civil litigation firm. These positions further developed my litigation skills. Since being admitted to the Colorado Bar, I have dedicated my practice to defending persons charged by the government with various offenses including DUI and traffic offenses, misdemeanors and felonies.
The power of the government, via the police and District Attorney, is almost limitless. Only the criminal defense attorney can provide a check to this power. It is my hope to provide that check on behalf of my clients.
