A Small Caseload of Select Clients Paired with Extensive Criminal Litigation Expertise

Additionally, we accept a limited number of 35(c) post-conviction/wrongful conviction cases on a case-by-case basis.

We follow a holistic team approach to your case, collaborating with a diverse network of investigators, forensic social workers, and highly respected experts across Colorado in fields such as forensic science, psychology, and medicine to provide you with the best possible defense.

Expertise at All Levels of the Criminal Justice System

Attorney Seth Johnson has successfully represented clients at all levels of the criminal justice system, including pre-trial, jury trial, appellate, and post-conviction. The difference between “assembly-line” justice and real justice often comes down to the amount of time spent on a case and hard work. Experience also plays a crucial role. Our focus on post-conviction and wrongful conviction cases has given us a unique understanding of the factors that can lead to an unjust verdict or outcome, such as ineffective defense counsel, poor forensic science, and police and prosecutorial misconduct. We work proactively to address these problems before it’s too late.
