OVERVIEW

About Michael Harris
I am a Colorado Springs DUI and criminal defense attorney. Generally, I help people in trouble. I specialize in DUIs and traffic, criminal defense, military courts-martial and separations, and appeals. I am a former prosecutor and Navy JAG attorney. From minor offenses to homicides and other major felonies, I have experience both in trials and appeals on both sides of the system to help you. I have helped those in all walks of life who need someone in court, from soldiers, nurses, and construction workers to police, pastors, local politicians, and fellow attorneys. I have tried over 170 cases with countless more hearings on evidence suppression and other motions. I am often called upon by other lawyers to run their cases when difficult issues arise.
