James F Stanley, Attorney at Law
- Current
My law practice focuses on helping individuals accused of a crime (felony or misdemeanor) or DUI in Colorado. My passion is to ensure that every step is taken and every possible measure is used to achieve the best possible case outcome for my clients. To accomplish this it is crucial that the prosecutor fully understands the total picture surrounding the facts of the case. This total picture is omitted when the police bring a case to the prosecutor. I have developed a skill in identifying, developing and effectively presenting the aspects of a case that place my client in the best possible light. Of course, each case is different and defensible to different degrees. My clients are consistently extremely satisfied with what I am able to accomplish for them.
