Denver DUI & Criminal Defense Lawyer

Choose Attorney Chris Cessna for the Defense You Need

While there are many attorneys who can handle your DUI or criminal case, few actually have the background and experience to properly handle these cases. Attorney Chris Cessna has numerous credentials and testimonies that give truth to his claims.

Put a Certified DUI Defense Specialist on Your Side

Every lawyer you speak with is going to tell you that their qualifications are more than acceptable for the defense of your DUI case. What they probably won't tell you, however, is that the difference between "handling DUI cases" and being a certified expert in DUI defense are entirely different things.

Most criminal defense lawyers take DUI cases pretty regularly, being that they are one of the most common offenses prosecuted. That said, the vast majority of them spend very little time training each year and learning the subtle details of what it takes to consistently win at trial.

Criminal law & DUI cases are complex and best addressed by a lawyer who has knowledge and experience applicable to this area of the law. Not only has Attorney Chris Cessna achieved numerous dismissals for his clients, he has devoted his entire practice to the defense of the criminally accused.

Our Practice is Exclusively Focused
On Protecting the Criminally Accused

Don't Plead Guilty to a Criminal Offense!

Most individuals believe they are automatically guilty at the point of arrest. They believe that fighting the charge is futile and a waste of money. In some cases, people will outright plead to the offense during the arrest process or confess to the police officer at the scene. Because of the amount of evidence that must be presented during a case, we can assure you that there is nothing open and shut about an arrest.

  • National College for DUI Defense
  • Colorado Criminal Defense Bar
  • Colorado Bar Association

They must not only knock down evidence, they must also prove that outside elements did not factor into your case, such as impairment in a DUI case. It is imperative that you remain silent during your arrest and retain skilled legal counsel. It is not your job to determine your innocence. It is the prosecution's job to prove their case.
