Law is my third career, after having served in the Army as an Interrogator-Linguist, and after working two decades as a chemical engineer.
Long before I went to law school, I sued Colorado because the state did not understand the First Amendment and threatened to prosecute me for organizing a paid petition drive. We prevailed in the U.S. Supreme Court, 9-0, and the Court declared Colorado’s laws unconstitutional (Meyer v. Grant, 486 U.S. 414 (1988)).
I graduated from University of Denver Sturm College of Law in 1995, and continued challenging unconstitutional laws, being part of another successful Supreme Court case. (Buckley v. ACLF, 525 U.S. 182 (1999)). Nevertheless, I soon came to realize the futility of suing states. I kept rolling the boulder up the hill, only to see it roll back down again, as states responded to our victories with new bad laws.
So I switched my focus to criminal defense, where I could protect the rights and liberties of those accused of crimes. My experience is extensive - I have handled state and federal cases, trials, appeals, and post-conviction matters, for more than 20 years. I have tried more than 70 cases, won most of them and a few appeals and some significant post-conviction matters.
Although I try to limit my work to criminal defense cases, I have also handled a wide variety of civil matters, including contract law and real estate matters.
