How I Can Help You
As a criminal defense lawyer, it is my goal to educate each client on the charges they face, possible penalties, and the judicial process. I work to protect my clients rights and help them make informed decisions in reaching the best possible outcome.
As a former Deputy District Attorney in Colorado, I have an insight into the inner workings of the DA’s office, as well as the entire criminal justice system. Because there are such a large caseloads in Larimer County, Weld County, and the Denver metro area, prosecutors have to analyze the cases on their docket quickly and make rushed decisions. Many Coloradoans and visitors to our state face criminal charges without the assistance of a lawyer, and feel they have no other choice than to take the deal– a decision many regret years, months or even days later.
I attended Lipscomb University, a private, liberal arts university in Nashville, Tennessee, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and German. I then moved across the country to earn my Juris Doctorate at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law.
I left law school with the strong desire to serve the community, so I became a Deputy District Attorney. As a prosecutor, I managed hundreds of criminal cases and tried dozens of those cases before juries. Since entering private practice as a criminal defense attorney in 2013 I have consistently and effectively defendant clients charged with violent crimes, sex offenses, DUI and DWAI, domestic violence enhancers, child abuse, drug crimes and crimes against property. I invest extra time to continuing education in the areas of criminal defense, criminal procedure and evidence so as to provide a top quality legal practice year after year.
