When you hire us for domestic violence defense, you can trust that your attorney will personally handle every detail of your case from beginning to end.

Another advantage of choosing a small firm is that our overhead costs are relatively low, which allows us to keep our pricing competitive. Our fees are generally lower than other attorneys in Denver, Avon, or the Vail Valley.

This is especially important when it comes to domestic violence, as the Colorado courts tend to fast-track these cases. We will begin investigating your case immediately, making it our goal to move faster than the prosecution in order to obtain the most favorable outcome for you.
