Don’t Get Scammed by Fake Reviews and Sham Awards
When doing your research online, you will see countless attorneys claim they are the “best” and “most experienced,” and promise to “aggressively defend” you and to “fight” for you and your case. You likely also sifted through some sharp-looking websites with numerous badges and logos claiming awards, “Top 10″ lists and “best” awards from various associations, and read countless glowing reviews boasting about the miraculous results the attorney achieves for every single client.
Unfortunately, some of the glowing reviews you may have read across the internet for some law firms are a sham. Some testimonials are paid for, and some written by family members, friends, neighbors, reputation management services, or other lawyers from different states on a “you-scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” basis. This occurs in all occupations and industries, but especially from lawyers looking to take short cuts to present best to potential clients who have just faced a life-altering arrest and are in dire need of help. What is also not disclosed is that many of these awards and badges you may have seen on other lawyer websites are meaningless, paid-for endorsements that are offered to anyone willing to pay for them. We receive consistent spam from fly-by-night companies claiming our lawyers have been selected for inclusion on a “top 10” list for a cost of, for example, $500 annually.

Tiftickjian Law Firm is listed in Best Law Firms, Best Lawyers, Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, and Super Lawyers.

Only Law Firm in Colorado that Focuses Primarily on DUI Defense
Many law firms will tell you they specialize in DUI defense, but they also “specialize” in general criminal defense, family law, personal injury, and any other area of law in which they can turn a profit. We are not a general criminal practice that handles a little bit of everything. We are a boutique specialty practice that makes DUI defense well over 85% of our practice area. We have a team of attorneys that each have their own area of expertise and specific role in the defense of your case.
For example, firm partner James Nechleba is a former administrative law judge for the Colorado DMV, and has been asked multiple times to present at seminars for bar associations on the topic of DMV Hearings and DUI driver’s license revocations. Doug Barnes’ experience as an appellate attorney is second to none. Mr. Barnes has over 30 years of trial and appellate experience, and is a key contributor to the legal research and motions litigation at the firm. All of the attorneys at Tiftickjian Law Firm have specialized training in criminal defense, DUI, DMV, and drug law and extensive experience litigating cases in court.

He has provided expert analysis to The New York Times, Associated Press, Denver Post, and 9News, to name a few, and has debated government and law enforcement leaders on issues related to DUI.
