I offer a one hour free initial consultation.
I do almost all cases at a flat fee rate. A typical retainer on a felony is about $5,000, on a DUI or DV, it is 50% of the fee agreed on (my rates start at $3,000 for a first DUI, which includes the DMV hearing).
Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
My investigator speaks Russian, Hebrew and German, at 303-817-2155.
Criminal law is the most colorful field in the law. I've met retired Russian gangsters, alcoholic painters, globe-trotting prostitutes--no wonder so many criminal lawyers make good writers.
Only if a case gets to the sentencing stage can any document prepared by a client have any real relevance.
Clients should educate themselves about who the best lawyers are and then hire one and let that lawyer do his job. Criminal law is not brain surgery, but it takes years in the business to know how the system really works.
