Defending Our Clients’ Futures Since 2007

The lawyers at The Juba Law Office believe that every person deserves a zealous advocate, whether the stakes are big or small. The law firm focuses on litigation and the attorneys at The Juba Law Office have appeared in municipal courts, traffic courts, county courts, district courts, and federal courts all across the state of Colorado. The very premise of the adversarial court system is that competent advocacy is necessary on both sides of a case. If you are facing litigation, then an experienced attorney is a necessity, not a luxury.

The firm has litigated hundreds of contested hearings in traffic court, criminal court, juvenile court, and civil court to protect the rights of its clients. In criminal and juvenile delinquency cases, the right to the effective assistance of an experienced attorney is a fundamental component of our criminal justice system. In all types of cases, big and small, the opposing party’s case must be able to survive the crucible of meaningful adversarial testing. An attorney is essential to this process, because the attorney’s advocacy is the means through which all other rights of the person are secured and protected. As Judge Wyzanski of the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has written, while a trial “is not a game in which the participants are expected to enter the ring with a near match in skills, neither is it a sacrifice of unarmed prisoners to gladiators.”
