My name is James Colgan. I began my legal career as a police officer. I worked as a deputy sheriff and a police officer for nearly five years. I then traveled out of Colorado to attend law school. I knew immediately that litigation and trial work was the area where I wanted to spend my career. I have been a trial lawyer since graduating from law school. I have successfully advocated for victims of serious crimes and conducted numerous trials as a Chief Deputy District Attorney. The trials I conducted ranged from DUI to child victim crimes to sexual assault to homicide.

When I moved on from the District Attorney’s Office, I had to decide whether I wanted to represent individuals or corporations. I realized that I am passionate about representing individuals so I currently represent the victims of someone else’s intentional actions or negligence in personal injury matters. In addition, I represent people accused of committing crimes. I have trial experience that is rare to find. I have tried numerous jury trials as a prosecutor, as Plaintiffs’ counsel in personal injury trials, and as a criminal defense attorney. I am as comfortable in a courtroom as any lawyer you will find.

However, most personal injury and criminal cases do not even go to a jury. While it is important to have a personal injury and criminal defense lawyer that is very good in the courtroom, it is also important to have a personal injury and criminal defense lawyer that does outstanding work outside of the courtroom. Regardless of the setting, some of my best work happens before the case gets to trial. I have successfully settled hundreds of personal injury cases resulting in reasonable and adequate compensation for my clients. Many of my criminal defense cases have resulted in outright dismissals by the prosecutor. My experience as a police officer and as a prosecutor has provided me a skill set that allows me to put together cases that encourages settlement rather than a trial.

My passion is to help you with your personal injury and criminal legal problem. If you have been injured through no fault of your own or you have been accused of committing a crime, these situations can be devastating to your life. You will require a personal injury and criminal defense attorney that can guide you in getting your life back on track.
