Trespass

The Purpose of this Sub Website is to assist present and future clients who are under investigation, charged with Colorado Criminal Acts – or have friends or loved ones who have a need to understand the crimes they are facing. I believe knowledge is power – that is why I continuously work on this and other web sites on Colorado Criminal Laws and Issues.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"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

"Working with Michael Steinberg was a wonderful experience. Truly people need to know that he is a expert in what he does. His personality is compassionate, intellectual, and down to earth. I glean that Michael is fun to be around. In the time I worked with him, it was a pleasure to be around him. As for my case, the outcome was amazing and couldn’t be better. He has made my life more manageable because of the outcome of my case. I’ve worked with other lawyers in the Denver area. He is superior to them all. If you’re in need of a lawyer and you come across Mr. Steinberg look no further he’s going to be the one you need. Thank you again Michael." Renee Taylor

"Being someone who had never been in trouble choosing the law office of Michael Steinberg was absolutely the most amazing decision I've made. The way Micheal handles these situations is absolutely amazing! He gives thorough explanation on what your options actually are and makes sure you understand them from top to bottom. He speaks to you like a human and not a dollar bill sign. I'm out in CO alone my entire family is out of state so not only was he my lawyer but he was my support system. He new how scared I was and he was kind and comforting but straight and to the point when he needed to be. I'm very grateful to him. And I thank him through and through. You would be making a huge mistake not to choose this law firm." Bryonda Copiskey
