I graduated from the University of Denver College of Law and was licensed to practice law in the State of Colorado in 1980. I am admitted to practice before all Colorado state courts and the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado.

My practice has emphasized both the defense of the criminally accused and Internet law. I represented Philip Zimmermann when he was the target of the federal government’s investigation of his email-encryption software program PGP (Pretty Good Privacy). I represented Eric Robison, owner of Clue Computing, Inc. and its domain clue.com, against Network Solutions, Inc. and Hasbro, Inc. and their attempts to take away the clue.com domain. I have represented ‘hackers’ and others accused of computer-related crimes.

Now, my practice is limited to court-appointed homicides and federal criminal cases.  I no longer take private-pay cases. 

I belong to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Colorado Bar Association, and the El Paso County Bar Association.
