Firm Overview

People come to see us because they have a problem. They need solutions, they need action, and they need human beings who listen not just fill in the blanks.I have been practicing for 26 years, 20 of them in Douglas County.When you hire counsel, you want to know that the lawyer you meet with is the lawyer who'll be working your case. You want to know that you've looked this person in the eye, sat down in her office and talked- and she listened - and there was genuine, two way conversation.I wish I could say the client is always right about everything, but I often have to tell people things they don't want to hear - I'm blunt, and clients feel comfortable asking why I think what I think. It's important that you feel comfortable and not talked down to by your attorney. It's also important that you don't feel like the attorney cared primarily about billing hours for the firm.I'm not the cheapest lawyer in town, but I get things done. They say if you want something done well, give it to a busy person. That shows that a practice is established, that they provide high quality service, and that they want to handle your case, help you solve your problem, and be done. Face it, you're not hiring me to be your friend. You're hiring me to get the job done. Well done. So it doesn't need to be done again. So you don't look back years later and think that you failed to obtain appropriate legal advice. Call today for an appointment - please mention if it is urgent - we can usually get people in within 24 hours - We get it - You're going to be stressed until you know what you can do about the problem - Call and find out - We can't make it disappear, but we can make it manageable - provide lists of things to do - and most importantly get our heads around a plan of action.

This web site is not intended to create and does not create an attorney-client relationship between you and The Law Office of Lori Crystal, LLC. An attorney-client relationship with us cannot be formed by reading any portion of this website or by sending us an email. The only way to become our client is through a signed Retainer Agreement. If you are interested in having us represent you, please call us so we can determine whether the matter is one for which we are willing and able to accept professional responsibility. We reserve the right to decline representation for any reason. Until and unless we have formally agreed to represent you, anything you send us, by email or otherwise, may not be confidential or privileged.

Measure twice cut once, grandmother sayings that hold true through the ages. Many of life's mistakes might have been avoided if we slowed down and thought for a second. Too often we get caught up in the energy of the moment. Adrenaline can be a good thing and a bad thing.

If you're dealing with the legal system in a domestic or criminal matter, impulsivity should be avoided. You want to act promptly and many items require immediate attention or your rights may be compromised. Responding to a motion for protective order, requesting a hearing to prevent license loss are just a few examples.

"License loss" includes not just driver's licenses, but professional licenses. Many professions (doctors, lawyers, realtors, nurses, etc) are subject to licensing by the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Things like unpaid obligations can cause loss of license or cause for scrutiny from the State board.

Before you hire a lawyer, be thoughtful and ask yourself if you trust this person's listening skills, their judgment, and feel like they will pursue your goals, rather than what they (or their firm's policy) thinks is best.

Some offices instruct their Associates to always try to get the house, always seek 50/50 parenting time, never accept a deferred judgment on the first court appearance, etc). These are just a few examples of goals that may be good, may be good 90% of the time, but if it is not what you want and doesn't suit your level of risk tolerance, then it may not be right for you.

Criminal Defense


Lori Crystal

Law Office of Lori Crystal, LLC

My name is Lori Crystal, and I want to help you. I started my law firm in 1994 in Castle Rock, Colorado. I received a degree in Economics from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, and graduated from the University of Denver Law School in 1990 receiving a Juris Doctorate. I am a member of the Colorado Bar Association, Family Law Section, the Douglas County Bar Association and the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar Association. I specialize in criminal and family matters. More importantly, I represent individuals not corporations. I understand that the bill is being paid from a real family budget, unlike a corporation that can just say, "send it to the legal department" for payment. I am not the cheapest lawyer, but I am frugal with my client's money. I have been practicing long enough to know that there are certain things that need to be done while avoiding needless busywork. Your attorney needs to be able to answer your questions and why things need to be done. You need to feel comfortable enough with your attorney to ask questions and know they respect your concerns.

I represent people not corporations. I solve problems. When clients leave my office saying, "I feel so much better now" after they've talked to me that is incredibly rewarding. I've been practicing family law and criminal defense since 1990 and have had an office in Castle Rock since 1994. My divorce clients range from teenagers with children of their own to middle aged and elderly individuals with multi million dollar marital estates, and complex property division issues (family businesses, trusts, inheritances, unusual compensation packages). My criminal cases are often intertwined with family law issues and involve drugs/alcohol/domestic violence/financial improprieties. You want to know who the attorney is who will be working on your case and showing up in court. If you have questions, you want to know that you will get a prompt response. You also want to know that your attorney is listening to you. Call today to schedule an office conference.
