Our Approach with Clients

The first step in any successful attorney-client relationship is exploring the client’s entire situation. This includes a detailed discussion of the facts and circumstances surrounding the case and the client’s background. We know from experience that this effort is critical in our attempts to get the results our clients expect as each and every client has different expectations and different circumstances that need to be considered. We also believe that our clients must be kept fully informed at all times. This includes taking the time to address the client’s concerns and fears as well as providing timely information regarding the progress of the case. We can get the best result possible in your case, but if we don’t keep you informed throughout the process, then we have not fully done what you hired us to do.

Our Approach to DUI Defense

We tailor our approach to each case based on case facts, client circumstances and other variables such as judge, district attorney, and mitigation. We are trial lawyers and prepare each and every case for trial from the onset, but we also understand that trial is often not the best strategy or approach based on case facts and client wishes. While our law firm has a reputation for providing excellent trial defense, we understand that a quick and economic resolution may also be in a particular client’s best interest. We strive to tailor your defense and seek resolutions based the what your personal goals are. If you have been charged with Driving Under the Influence or another criminal charge, we can strive to find the best defense in your case. Let us know what we can do for you today by calling (303) DUI-5280 or contacting us through this website to request a complimentary consultation with a defense attorney from our law firm.
