More About our Colorado Criminal Defense Law Firm

H. Michael Steinberg is a Former Colorado Career Senior District Attorney (D.A.) Whose Law Practice Now Focuses on Denver and the Front Range of Colorado and is Exclusively Limited to Trial and Negotiation in Criminal Law Matters.

Mr. Steinberg is an experienced former Senior Trial District Attorney whose thirteen year career as a prosecuting attorney in the courtrooms of the Denver Metropolitan area (Senior Career District Attorney in Arapahoe and Douglas Counties) and the Front Range of Colorado have led to an exclusive law practice of criminal defense with a strong emphasis on the trial phase of legal advocacy.

Mr. Steinberg’s trial experience, along with a personal commitment to his clients and an aggressive continuing legal education philosophy, combine to maintain a solid reputation for professionalism and quality of service in the Denver Metropolitan area.

A Trial Lawyer and Teacher Both are Necessary for Good Communication

Books The firm offers total litigation services in a supportive, hands-on environment. As a trial lawyer and teacher, Mr. Steinberg’s philosophy is grounded in the strong belief that his clients should be fully informed of every aspect of their case as the case progresses. Each of his clients is provided an education in the law (sometimes perhaps more than they want to know) while receiving complete coverage in every phase of their case.

Many criminal cases can be resolved through negotiations between a seasoned criminal defense lawyer and a reasonable prosecutor. But not all cases can, or should, be resolved in that manner. Experience is the difference. Knowing when an offer should be accepted – or – rejected is critical to achieving the best possible result. Experience in pre-trial motions practice, evidenciary suppression hearings and jury trials is important to the effective defense of a person charged with having committed a criminal act.

Excellence in the courtroom is the result of years of trial and courtroom experience. For the last 30 years, Mr. Steinberg has successfully tried jury trials and presented cases of all types before some of the toughest and well-known judges in the Denver area. He has handled criminal cases of virtually every conceivable variety and looks forward to each new case as a fresh challenge to succeed and bring about a good result for his clients.

Most Experienced Colorado Criminal Defense Lawyer Attorney Law Firm and Passionate About Serving You a Personal Statement

30 Years of Experience ”I have always focused my law career on exclusively Criminal Law. For many years -during and after college – I worked as a paralegal for Legal Aid (poverty law firms) in Oregon, all over Massachusetts and Illinois as both a college student and later as a VISTA volunteer between college and law school.

In law school I interned at the Federal Prosecutor’s office in Eugene, Oregon – and later as a third year DA at the Lane County District Attorney’s office. Later – after law school – I worked as a law clerk directly for a famous criminal law judge in Denver Colorado followed closely thereafter by a lengthy and well known career as a Senior Career District Attorney for the Arapahoe, Douglas, Lincoln and Elbert County District Attorney (the Colorado 18th Judicial District) for almost 13 years.

In 1999 – I opened my Denver Tech Center law firm and have successfully defended thousands of clients over the past 12 plus years. I use all of that experience every day of my life to benefit my clients both tactically and strategically in defending their cases.

During the last 30 plus years – I have gained a tremendous amount of courtroom and real life experience in the trenches.- before juries, and tough judges … not behind a desk. Many of my cases have been high profile and I have been a guest commentator on many national cabe networks, frequently quoted in national and Colorado newspapers and publish daily to several Colorado Criminal Law Blogs and Colorado criminal law websites.”

“I not only keep my skills sharp in the courtroom – I am a writer and I have taught over the years to at least two police academies. I also often guest instruct at both law enforcement and criminal defense seminars on a regular basis.

Most of all – I am the proud father of two fantastic children – both in college – They, and my wonderful wife, are what my life is about at the end of the day.

When I find time to feed my hobbies, I love to read, kayak, work out (daily) at 24 Fitness and Lifetime Fitness, sail on my little 18 foot sailboat and, yes, I am a computer nerd – (at 6 foot 1 inch and 275 pounds) I build and maintain all of my computers and write constantly on Colorado criminal law topics.

I love what I do — and I am good at it. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your case – I also greatly enjoy the analysis of tough Colorado Criminal cases.

"I found myself in criminal trouble, that I wasn't guilty of and thanks to Mr. Steinberg's dedication and hard work, right before we we're looking at having to continue on to trial level Mr. Steinberg was able to use his vast knowledge of the law and his many respected years in the system to find a way to show my innocence. After a very unsure and somewhat difficult time for me, this very skilled and knowledgeable attorney was able to find the right path to take to reach a dismissal in my case. For that I can't tell you how much I appreciate his representation and his excellent understanding and helpful personality. He's a great man and an even better attorney but don't misunderstand him, he is an attorney not a therapist. Thanks H." Josh
