Kimberly is a friend to the veteran community. Without getting into specifics, I can tell you that she was working hard after hours to communicate with the D.A. and presenting evidence to get my case dropped. I didn’t even have to go back to court! She even had a colleague sent in that knew every single person that worked in that court room (smooth move). My family and I couldn’t be happier and would recommend her to anyone looking at a criminal case.

Just wow ! Words can not do her justice when it comes to her talent and skill in a court room. She is by far Denver’s most elite criminal attorney and commands not just respect but a presence and reassurance in my lowest moment in life . Without her help I would have never been able to get back on my feet and fix my mistakes in life. Honestly with her hard work in securing my freedom I could not be more pleased and blessed to have had her by my side in court .

I contacted Kimberly's office for some legal advice. Kim not only returned my phone call promptly, she patiently listened to my story and answered questions I had. She went out of her way to handle my situation with an investigation and took care of business. I have much gratitude and greatly appreciate Kimberly's kindness and willingness to help me out.

Everything about the process from start to end was easy. My mind was put at ease early on from our first consultation. We spoke over the phone on a Saturday morning, when I was not really expecting to hear back from anyone. When we met in person later that week I knew I had made the right choice. I finally heard back from other people I had called on Monday and Tuesday and they were just in a hurry to get off the phone after telling me what it would cost and asking if I had the money. My case took a while to get resolved but only because she kept pushing for a better outcome. Eventually she wore the prosecutor down and we got what we were looking for. Thanks again!

Ms. Diego was a God send. She helped me navigate through the system when I needed help the most. Originally the prosecutor offered a felony and possible jail but after months of work and investigation I received a deferred sentence to a misdemeanor. No felony. No jail. I couldn’t imagine what I would have done without her. She truly cares. She is the best. Thanks, Ms. Diego!

Mr. Orr is personable, honest, and respectable. Look no further if you're seeking a traffic lawyer! I called in for a consult on my case and Mr. Orr answered the phone himself and spent 20 minutes providing we advice, despite telling me within the first 1 minute of the call that I shouldn't hire him and should defend myself. He proceeded to walk through all the steps of what the court day would look like for me and what to expect, so as to help me feel more comfortable. I'm so impressed with his willingness to help me, despite the fact that I didn't retain his services. His advice was great -- I got the ticket downgraded on my own!

Amazing experience through and through! Mr. Orr is an honest man who certainly knows his stuff - he helped me greatly and kept me sane when I had to go to traffic court for the first time. I highly recommend this firm, and will surely be going back to them should I ever need legal assistance again. Thank you to the wonderful staff for taking such great care of me!

To quote my son, Mr. Orr is a "powerful man." Professional, highly confident and knowledgeable, and willing to give great advice. I am grateful that he was able to help my son.

I ultimately didn't end up needing to use Rhidian's legal services, but I can't say enough about this man's willingness to help and provide guidance, insights, and suggested actions around my pending needs. He was a pleasure to engage with, and the information he was able to provide was incredibly valuable. If you're looking for a great legal resource or strategy, this is your guy! Thanks!

If you are looking for an attorney that is knowledgeable, professional and is fully invested in fighting for you -then this is the team to hire . Rhidian , Rick and Amanda are on top of all the details. I am impressed with their skills and ability's and they worked for an outcome on my son's case that is better than I could have imagined .

Kevin was the best choice! I was hit with a charge out of the blue, had never had anything to do with the system before and Kevin walked me through the entire process. He told me what I could do to help make the process easier and help my case. The whole thing was a lot less stressful because I had Kevin on my side.

Professional, knowledgeable, priced fairly, I never felt rushed. Kevin took time to explain the applicable law and What it meant for my case. He made time for me and promptly returned calls and at court he was very punctual. If you want good representation I highly recommend Kevin Churchill. The outcome for my case was better than expected thanks to Kevin Churchill’s expertise.

Kevin is an outstanding lawyer - helped me to understand the whole process - kept me informed all through this process and really helped calm my nerves and our case had an excellent outcome. I would recommend him to everyone I know if they need legal counsel like I did. Thank you Kevin!! Rick

Highly professional service. He truly puts in the effort to research the details around your case and helps you put false allegations and ridiculous circumstances to rest. He will thoroughly explore all probabilities and options with you for as much time as you need to fully comprehend all possibilities and procedures so that you can make informed choices. A great choice for legal counsel and representation when you find yourself dealing with the absurdities of life.

Kevin Churchill is an attorney who is able to empathize and care while grinding his way to achieve his clients the best possible outcome. I feel as though I have my life back, and can excel, without living in a constant state of fear because of the weight of the judicial system.  Every case is unique and he took the time to be able to present the uniqueness, ambiguousness, and judiciousness of my specific circumstances. When he believed the DA wasn’t properly reviewing all of the documents and was not returning his calls, he waited outside of the bathrooms so that he could get time to speak with the DA firsthand. Kevin is able to work well with his colleagues and be listened to by DAs and Judges alike, which is exactly who you want defending you when the odds are stacked against you.    One of the many benefits of having Kevin Churchill in my corner was his ability to guide me to provide legitimate documentation that added to my case and to my ultimate benefit. Transparency and clarity are bonuses that he adds to his work, as well as, an uncanny ability to manage expectations. He fought tirelessly until the last second with my case. I very easily could have landed in jail, or multiple years of probation, instead I ended up having the case terminated due to Kevin’s hard work.   His determination and emotional concern for others is one of the many reasons that make him a great attorney and a wonderful individual. I hope one day that my investments grow in size enough so that I can afford to hire him to be my chief counsel, or as an in-house counsel. I honestly can’t say enough positive things about Kevin.

Daniel Murphy is by far the BEST lawyer that’s ever represented me. He’s straightforward, professional and diligent. Working as a lawyer for 20+ years he’s extremely knowledgeable on the ins and outs of litigation and will fight your case aggressively. Hire this lawyer!

Daniel is an incredible choice when considering an attorney. He went the distance and then some to ensure I got the best possible outcome. He’s straightforward, does not mince words, and knows his law. I’m glad to have him in my corner.

Daniel saved me! He got me out of a bunch of tickets that would have taken my license away. He’s the best lawyer in Denver. He got his degree from DU and he really knows his stuff. He charges fair prices, you get what you pay for. Especially with these kinds of things.

I was quite pleased with Daniel Murphy's work on my case. During the initial interview I just felt that Daniel not only had a handle on the particulars of my case, but, equally as important, I had a gut feeling that he 'knew his territory.' I think this is an overlooked and important factor when hiring an attorney. This feeling was justified when, during a court hearing, I heard him turn to the clerk of the court and ask her how her Thanksgiving holidays were going. This may seem insignificant, but it told me that he was experienced with this court, knew the people he was dealing with and knew the ins and outs of every step of the process. He indeed 'knew his territory.' As such, the outcome and disposition of my case were quite satisfactory for me. And during the entire process I was treated fairly and honestly by Daniel. I highly recommend Daniel Murphy.

Dan is competent, determined, and gives you the confidence he will handle your business. I was very pleased with how he took a vested interest in my husband’s case. He keeps his word. He will work hard for you. He is an excellent attorney.

Amazing LGBT friendly law firm that is client focused, cost effective, forward thinking and trauma sensitive. They go above and beyond to help clients from all walks of life. I happy that I found LGBT friendly none judgemental firm. I endorse them without any reservations. Thanks for your time Muhaisen& Muhaisen. Much appreciated.

I have known Wadi and many of the lawyers in his office for several years. I can honestly say that they are some of the kindest, smartest, and genuine lawyers I have ever met. You really can't go wrong with these folks.

Wadi and Amanda were the perfect people for us. They were very concerned about us as clients as well as our case. Most importantly, they were always available to us when we had questions or concerns about our case. We can't say enough about them or their firm as to how happy we are at the outcome of our case. Anyone they represent is lucky to have them.

Wadi and the folks at Muhaisen and Muhaisen are unmatched. I can't fully explain what a wonderful experience we had with this firm. From day one, we were made to feel like important clients. There was never a moment in our process where we didn't feel protected, respected, and taken care of. It's daunting to have to seek legal counsel for various things, but this process made us feel so comfortable. At the end of the day, we were floored with the results of our case and can't say enough about how hard Wadi and his team worked to find the best possible result for us. We are so glad to have found him and he will be the first person we call should we ever need legal aide again. Thank you, Wadi!

I have known Wadi for years and my first impression of him is ALWAYS his genuine warmth and rapport. In the legal world these characteristics are essential to successfully presenting your case to a judge, a District Attorney, another lawyer, or a jury. This characteristic is rare among lawyers, but Wadi has it, and it has led to many successful outcomes for him. I would hire Wadi and his team in a heartbeat if I was ever in need of representation in the Denver area.

Shazam, did a wonderful job of helping my daughter. He was by her side the whole way, walking her through the process. The office staff is very helpful and friendly as well. I highly recommend having this law firm handle your case.

I needed help with a speeding ticket, and the service provided couldn't have been better. I was going 85mph in a 50 (not a habit of mine) the 1st time I called we went over the case (it was a 5min call) then I was updated of the status later, my lawyer Jason Thatcher went to court and worked out a fantastic deal.Everyone from the receptionist & up were great. They even answered a call on a holiday when the office was closed.

I admit mistakes happen and I was one that did something I shouldn’t have. I was looking at a misdemeanor and thought my life and career would be over. Jason helped calm my nerves and yet was very honest with all outcomes. If you want sugar coating, you may want to reevaluate why you are hiring an attorney to begin with. I would rather take tough love and transparency rather than someone telling me things I only wanted to hear. Jason was very thorough and explained not only all the outcomes but also addressed any concerns I had. He didn’t “sugar coat” it but he did always have a good explanation of why things would/could go certain ways. I was glad cause I at least knew the worst case outcome but if you asked him his honest opinion he would give it to you. With that being said he got the misdemeanor reduced down to two different plea deals with both pros and cons. I took the reduced to a petty offense plea for my own personal reasons. This whole experience was eye opening over a mistake. However, I am glad Jason and the Shazam Law team helped me through it. Everyone I encountered was very friendly from Malory and the others that I spoke with. I didn’t feel judged meeting with them and they took time to get to know me instead of the idea of me.

I thought she was a nice lady however she never called me back as I was told she would do after doing some looking into my history and some other things .

HORRIBLE AND LAZY SERVICE!!!!! I went to Shazam for a domestic violence case which I was completely innocent. This guy really had the nerve to tell me to take a plead deal, after he got paid, when there was no evidence against me at all. I honestly felt like he was being lazy so I fired him to beat the case with a public defender. I've never had anything on my record prior to the charge. I was in his office so furious when he told me to take the plead because there was absolutely no way I was going to get charged for something that 1. I didn't even do!! And 2. There was NO EVIDENCE!!! I would NEVER recommend this law firm to any of my friends or family. Guy is only out there to break pockets and do some lazy work. If you would like to get charged for the crime you have not committed then these are your guys!!

He didn’t “sugar coat” it but he did always have a good explanation of why things would/could go certain ways. I was glad cause I at least knew the worst case outcome but if you asked him his honest opinion he would give it to you. With that being said he got the misdemeanor reduced down to two different plea deals with both pros and cons. I took the reduced to a petty offense plea for my own personal reasons. This whole experience was eye opening over a mistake. However, I am glad Jason and the Shazam Law team helped me through it. Everyone I encountered was very friendly from Malory and the others that I spoke with. I didn’t feel judged meeting with them and they took time to get to know me instead of the idea of me.

    HORRIBLE AND LAZY SERVICE!!!!! I went to Shazam for a domestic violence case which I was completely innocent. This guy really had the nerve to tell me to take a plead deal, after he got paid, when there was no evidence against me at all. I honestly felt like he was being lazy so I fired him to beat the case with a public defender. I've never had anything on my record prior to the charge. I was in his office so furious when he told me to take the plead because there was absolutely no way I was going to get charged for something that 1. I didn't even do!! And 2. There was NO EVIDENCE!!! I would NEVER recommend this law firm to any of my friends or family. Guy is only out there to break pockets and do some lazy work. If you would like to get charged for the crime you have not committed then these are your guys!!

Jacob, Brett and their entire team pushed strong and worked tirelessly to help me through a tough time in my life. Not only did they respect my situation, but they believed in me. From the beginning, Jacob was open and honest with every outcome and possibility that could have occurred. He communicated with my family and myself as much as we needed him to and always gave us trust worthy answers. During this experience, I not only gained an amazing lawyer in my defense but I gained new lifelong friendships and family! Because of Jacob, Brett, Julie, Steve, and John, I am able to come home to my family every night and continue to live a grateful life! I will never have enough words to truly express how thankful I am! I would HIGHLY recommend this AMAZING team to everyone!!

Jake is very knowledgeable and thorough in what he does. He helped me through the lowest point of my life with an unfortunate felony case witch ended up getting dismissed! Thanks for the hard work and definitely recommend him!

Looking down the list of reviews, all sounded too good to be true. After dealing with my case for just over this last year, I understand where all of the positive reviews come from. I was facing nearly a dozen of harsh charges for marijuana related crimes that felt unfair and overwhelming. If convicted I would have looked at lengthy incarceration. The entire process from the first consultation was un-rushed, informative, and productive. I was communicated with through out the entirety of the case. Jacob and his team were able to help build a strategy, and help me understand exactly how this was going to pan out. He Negotiated with prosecution multiple times to get me a deal that I never expected to be possible. I am a free man and get to carry on my life without having any felony convictions. I could not be more pleased with Jacob and Brett, and was eager to write a review for others to see. Thank you for your hard work and effort.

Jacob Martinez was great, I am so grateful I found him if I could give him more stars I would, he was always straight forward and honest and he managed to get the results I wanted, I highly recommend his services.

Brett has done an amazing job. Not only has he been very personable but very professional, honest and dedicated to my case as well. He has stuck by my side and worked with my family as well. Under the unique circumstances of my case the outcome was better than expected I would highly recommend his services

In Colorado, gaming is a small industry and good representation can be difficult to acquire. If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself with a gaming charge I highly recommend Ron to represent you. He has had more gaming cases than any other attorney that I am aware of. He has a strong understanding of the gaming statute and walked me through my case every step of the way. You will find him patient and knowledgeable. Ron was very accessible and prompt to get back to me which can be a rare commodity in an attorney. I highly recommend Mr. Aal to anyone facing a gaming charge.

Mr. Aal is a professional and simultaneously personable individual hard to do both in this particular field. I'd recommend his services 100%.

Not only was Ron kind and empathetic throughout his services on a personal legal matter, he was thorough and successful in providing the best outcome. He explained everything from a legal stand point in terms we could understand and advised us on all possibilities. And again was able to achieve the best results. He offered understanding and compassion, I will definitely use him in the future and recommend others do as well!

Ron is a great attorney and a great guy as well! He was reccomended through a friend and I am very happy that I hired him. I was looking at charges that I was not guilty of and when everyone else suggested that I "plea and make a deal" for something that I didn't do, Ron represented me and the charges were dismissed. He really knows the law and how the courts work and will do research and go the extra mile for your case.

Ron was extremely helpful and took the time to review my case and find the best options for me. Ron has been in the business for 28 years and has a great understanding of the legal system. He always made sure to keep in contact with me to be sure I understood my case and called to confirm all actions before acting upon them. I would strongly recommend calling him to discuss any legal issues you may encounter. Thank you for everything Ron!!

Richard Poormon and Keri have been extremely helpful with two different traffic citations involving my daughter who is away at college. They handled everything remotely with no issues what-so-ever. After such a great outcome with the first case, they were my first go to with the second incident. They are both very knowledgeable, hard working, and genuinely cared about us and our cases. They are both consistently kind, compassionate and professional and very personable and easy to talk to. Rick is always responsive and honest with me. He keeps me informed on the status of my case and answers all my questions. He has gone above and beyond to get the best possible outcome for us. Their portal is so helpful and easy to navigate. I highly recommend them, and will be hiring them again if the need is present.

Keri was very patient and able to answer questions we had as we drafted our will. It was very fast once we had it ready to come in and get it all signed and notarized. It's hard to think about what you want to put in your will but you owe it to your family to get one done and Justice For Colorado is a great place to go to get your will done.

Best representation I have ever had! They have represented me in both personal and business matters with fantastic results. Always under promise and over deliver with great attention to detail. Especially sensitive to client cost mitigation and have always acted in my best interest. If you want aggressive, fair, and smart legal representation call Gabriel Schwartz/Justice for Colorado team

I just want to thank Rick and Keri so much, I have never been through these procedures before and you guys knocked it out of the park for me and I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome! So THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I've worked with a few lawyers in my life so far and none can compare. Super fast responses and unparalleled professionalism. No nonsense direct legal counsel. Highly recommend this guy and feel free to contact me for a reference. I worked with Richard. Ask for him when you go.

I haven't yet hired this firm, but I've been extremely impressed how much they communicate with me while I decide. I can only imagine how great they would be if I can acquire them. Also an honest conversation. I was told my odds and still would feel more confident with them than anywhere I've researched

Trent is a client’s advocate in every way. He provides unparalleled knowledge, support and precision. I was referred to him by a mutual friend and I can say retaining Trent was one of the best decisions I’ve made in recent memories, especially given the circumstances of my sticky situation. It was a relief to have him by my side throughout the judicial process — and he will do the same for each and every client. Thank you Trent!

Nothing to complain about what so ever. I received a DUI and Trent himself has been nothing but fantastic and I couldn’t be happier with my decision on asking him for representation. Throughout the process he’s kept me fully informed on what’s going on with my case without beating around the bush. I definitely have more of a peace of mind knowing that he has been backing me. I would fully recommend his firm to anyone who has had the unfortunate luck I have had.

When looking for a criminal defense attorney they have to be knowledgeable, confidential, committed, posses great communication skills, aggressive, integrity and experience. Both Mr. Trani and Ms. Dawson have these plus much much more! Thank you!

I had a very serious felony criminal matter in Denver District Court about a year ago. I contacted several attorneys when I was trying to decide who to have represent me. Mr. Trani was far and away the most impressive with his knowledge of the law, his ideas for my defense, and his ability to make me feel comforted. I went ahead and hired Mr. Trani and am so happy that I did. He looked over my case and found several flaws in the district attorneys case against me. He hired an investigator who also found witnesses and surveillance video that was favorable to me. We were set for trial this last summer and I was very confident that Mr. Trani would be successful for me. I could tell that he was prepared and way overmatched the DA who we were up against. I was offered a low level misdemeanor a few days before the trial that I could not refuse, so the case never actually made it to the trial date. After accepting the misdemeanor that Mr. Trani also advised that I accept, I was granted a short period of unsupervised probation. All I had to do was pay a small fine and some court costs, and do 24 hours of community service. It was Mr. Trani that helped me get this great deal. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer. I think that he's the best! Thanks Mr. Trani!
