Murder, Assault & Violent Crime

Murder & Violent Crime Attorney in Colorado

Most attorneys never handle a murder case in their entire career due to the high stakes, stress, time commitment required, or their lack of expertise.

It can be difficult work, but Attorneys Douglas T. Cohen and Todd J. Narum believe that everyone deserves a defense, no matter how serious the allegation.

Recent Murder Cases and Results

As defense attorneys, Doug and his law partner, Todd J. Narum, have handled three murder cases in just the last three years, and many more in their legal careers.

  • One case – a high-profile first-degree murder charge that was in the Colorado media in 2018-2019 – was totally dismissed due to the thorough defense investigation Attorney Cohen and his legal team presented to the prosecution early in the case.
  • Two other cases, one a drug-related first-degree murder case in 2015-2016 and the other a vehicular homicide DUI 2018-2019, which the prosecution re-charged as first-degree Murder, both resulted in greatly reduced sentences due to our extensive legal advocacy and investigation on behalf of our clients. This included months of witness interviews, expert retention and analysis, and legal motions challenging and suppressing certain prosecution evidence and uncovering other evidence helpful to our clients that the police had never found.

Attorneys Cohen and Narum know what to expect from the prosecution in court, and how to skillfully negotiate as well as legally challenge the prosecution’s case for any violent crime.
