Criminal Defense

When faced with serious criminal allegations, it is vital to have an experienced and trusted lawyer at your side. Our attorneys cooperate and coordinate with an array of criminal-law experts in order to provide guidance and legal advice.

We offer clients the utmost discretion when handling their criminal cases. Our attorneys understand that accidents happen, and mistakes are made. Nevertheless, we believe that offenders often need protection, as well as an opportunity to make reparation, without facing an unjust sentence at the hand of an unsympathetic or crusading prosecutor.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury attorneys represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of another's negligence or carelessness. This may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice and more.

In addition to physical pain and impairment, personal injuries are often accompanied by emotional and financial hardship. They often bring medical bills, loss of work, and increased stress to the lives of you and your loved ones. The Bagley Law FIrm, LLC has the tools to fix these problems.

DUI and DWI

We work hard to represent our clients with the utmost protection and reparation.

JP Prentiss

J.P. focuses his practice on family law including dissolution, custody, the allocation of parental responsibilities, and the modification of previously entered orders. When resolving family law disputes, he focuses on crafting resolutions that not only meet his clients' needs but also ensure that the best interests of the children involved take top priority. J.P. also practices criminal defense



Since his admission to the bar in 2005, J.P. has tried over sixty cases, handled countless contested motions and other hearings, and successfully negotiated settlements in hundreds, if not thousands more.



From an early age, J.P. knew he wanted to continue his family's legacy as an attorney. His passion for justice and helping those in need has only continued to grow since then. J.P. grew up in Texas where he attended Southwestern University in Georgetown and earned a BA in history and theater. After college, he moved to Denver, where he attended the University Of Denver Sturm College Of Law.



During law school, J.P. was a teaching assistant for first-year criminal law students and interned with the Denver District Attorney's office in both the appellate and juvenile divisions.

It was at the DA's office, while working in the juvenile division, that J.P. developed a passion for helping children. After leaving the District Attorney's Office in 2008, this passion naturally focused his practice on parental responsibility actions where he is able to use substantial litigation and negotiation experience to ensure that cases are resolved in his clients' -- and in their children's -- best interests. This experience allows him to handle complex and challenging legal matters with the unique perspective of a former prosecutor, ensuring the best possible results for clients no matter how big or small their cases may be.

Criminal Defense

When faced with serious criminal allegations, it is vital to have an experienced and trusted lawyer at your side. Our attorneys cooperate and coordinate with an array of criminal-law experts in order to provide guidance and legal advice.

We offer clients the utmost discretion when handling their criminal cases. Our attorneys understand that accidents happen, and mistakes are made. Nevertheless, we believe that offenders often need protection, as well as an opportunity to make reparation, without facing an unjust sentence at the hand of an unsympathetic or crusading prosecutor.

Personal Injury

Our personal injury attorneys represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of another's negligence or carelessness. This may include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice and more.

In addition to physical pain and impairment, personal injuries are often accompanied by emotional and financial hardship. They often bring medical bills, loss of work, and increased stress to the lives of you and your loved ones. The Bagley Law FIrm, LLC has the tools to fix these problems.

DUI and DWI

We work hard to represent our clients with the utmost protection and reparation.

J.P. also practices criminal defense



Since his admission to the bar in 2005, J.P. has tried over sixty cases, handled countless contested motions and other hearings, and successfully negotiated settlements in hundreds, if not thousands more.



From an early age, J.P. knew he wanted to continue his family's legacy as an attorney. His passion for justice and helping those in need has only continued to grow since then. J.P. grew up in Texas where he attended Southwestern University in Georgetown and earned a BA in history and theater. After college, he moved to Denver, where he attended the University Of Denver Sturm College Of Law.

It was at the DA's office, while working in the juvenile division, that J.P. developed a passion for helping children. After leaving the District Attorney's Office in 2008, this passion naturally focused his practice on parental responsibility actions where he is able to use substantial litigation and negotiation experience to ensure that cases are resolved in his clients' -- and in their children's -- best interests. This experience allows him to handle complex and challenging legal matters with the unique perspective of a former prosecutor, ensuring the best possible results for clients no matter how big or small their cases may be.
