I spent years as a prosecuting Deputy District Attorney in Denver, Colorado. During that time I tried scores of cases and came to know what it takes to accurately analyze criminal charges.
Today, after 25 years of criminal practice, as a criminal defense attorney I see many cases where the conclusions of the police, often after inadequate investigation, are accepted without question by the prosecutor. It is often my job to deconstruct what the prosecutor believes is a valid case and demonstrate that to the prosecutor. If he chooses to ignore the reasoning I present to him, and refuses to be reasonable in dealing with the cases, then I present it to the jury, with an overwhelming success rate.
