Why You Can Trust DeChant Law With Your Defense

Denver Criminal Defense & DUI Lawyer

Reid has experience as both a public defender and in private practice. He handled cases as a public defender in Denver, Broomfield, and Adams County where he defended traffic offenses, DUI/DWAI, thefts, sexual assaults, homicides, and everything in between. Throughout his experience as a public defender, he recognized that most clients come to him at the lowest point in their life. Not only do these clients need help in the courtroom, but they need someone who cares about their story and fights for what is best for them in their situation. At Trial Lawyers College, Reid learned the power of storytelling in the courtroom. It begins with having compassion for the client and his/her story.

At DeChant Law, you will be a part of the team and not just a client. Have you been in court and heard an attorney refer to their client as “my client?” Be assured, this unacceptable practice is non-existent at DeChant Law. Our client-focused defense keeps you involved at every step of the way so that you can make the best decision for you and your family. Reid will create a personalized mitigation plan and leave no stone unturned while negotiating with the prosecution. At the end of the day, if the prosecution’s offer falls short of your expectations, our experienced Denver criminal defense lawyer is prepared to take the case to trial and zealously advocate for what is just.

What Makes Reid An Effective Trial Attorney?

“Overall, what makes me different from most attorneys is the way I handle cases and my willingness to go to trial, no matter the allegations. I prepare every case as if it was going to trial. This approach births the best possible outcome for any case and never compromises a result. Taking the time to prepare the case for trial from the beginning allows an effective development of my client’s story which adds a priceless persuasive value to my negotiations with the prosecutors. If negotiations fall short, I am already ahead of the game and ready for trial.”
