What distinguishes your law firm from others?

Decades of defense experience have taught us how cops and district attorneys put together cases. While some Colorado criminal defense lawyers take a wait-and-see approach, we know there is no time to waste. The best criminal lawyers know that often the most critical window is right after an arrest.

After all, the police and prosecutor aren't waiting to build a case against you. Why give them a head start? Cases aren't just won in the courtroom. Knowing who to talk to and who has the discretion to negotiate are often just as important as making the best impression on the jury -- although we know how to do that, too.

Michael Becker

Colorado criminal defense attorney Michael Becker is the only attorney on lawyer.com with a perfect 100 point rating and is one of the few on AVVO with a perfect 10 rating.

For a quarter of a century, Michael Becker has been fighting to get his clients' charges reduced or dismissed. He can usually achieve a very favorable resolution through negotiation. But if necessary, he will draw on his vast courtroom experience -- including more than 100 jury trials -- in pursuit of a full acquittal.

Michael Becker defends clients against every type of charge in Colorado, from shoplifting, traffic tickets, and DUI/DWAI to drug offenses, violent crimes, felony assault, and firearm possession by previous offenders. He also represents children facing juvenile offenses, and he helps people with past convictions to get their Colorado criminal records sealed.

Prior to practicing in Colorado, Michael Becker began his career in California, where he achieved "not guilty" verdicts in murder and attempted murder trials.

He also practices in Nevada, where law enforcement remains so impressed by his defense skills that the Nevada Association of Public Safety Officers (NAPSO) keeps him on retainer to represent its police officers whenever one of them is prosecuted for a crime!

National and local media outlets seek out Michael Becker for his legal opinion. You may recognize him from his many television appearances, including this piece about a U.S. Supreme Court decision on Fox Business:

Michael Becker has earned the distinction of being named in several esteemed "best of" attorney shortlists, including Lead Counsel "Rated Attorney" and The National Advocacy for DUI Defense "Nationally Ranked Superior DUI Attorney".

Michael Becker received his J.D. in 1992 from the University of Miami School of Law, and his B.S. in 1989 from the University of Southern California. Michael has also taken advanced training on how to defend against charges of sexual assault. A life member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Michael is licensed to practice law in Florida as well.
