  • An Anonymous Father of a client

My experience with Mr. Cessna made a difficult time much smoother. He was always available to answer my barrage of questions. It was very clear his years of experience makes him one of the best criminal defense lawyers in the Denver metro. I would recommend Mr. Cessna to anyone that wants an involved lawyer that is always available to answer questions. As for the reviews that claim Mr. Cessna is not responsive are simply not true. Within hours of calling, we had many of questions answered and it relieved a lot of worry.

  • A Satisfied Client

I would highly recommend Chris to anyone!

I was arrested for DWAI late in December. As I had never been in any sort of legal trouble before, I was very nervous and had a ton of questions about the entire legal process. Chris was always available to answer my questions. It was very obvious that he was not only extremely knowledgeable, but he was very familiar with the Jefferson County courts. Chris got my DWAI dismissed in less than 6 months. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone!

  • A Satisfied Client

Chris was kind and was eager to help me!

I was arrested for a DUI July 2014, I sought out Chris after I had had several unpleasant discussions with other attorneys. Chris was kind and was eager to help me. During the whole pre-arraignment period, Chris and his team were helpful and attentive to my needs and my situation. Due to extenuating circumstances I wasn't able to take my case to trial, but Chris was able to convince the DA and the Judge to give me the most minimal of judicial sentencing. I am very thankful for Chris and his team for helping me to get the best result we could.

  • A Satisfied Client

Chris Cessna is a life saver!

Late in 2015 I was charged with a DUI so I decided to hire Chris Cessna, which turned out to be the best decision I made all year. I contacted his law office and was greeted by a friendly paralegal. She was extremely helpful, answered all of my questions, and a short time later I was contacted by Chris himself. He was present at every court proceeding (even the ones he could have easily sent a representative for) and handled my case personally. He ended up getting the case against me dropped! I highly recommend Chris Cessna for any and all DUI and other criminal defense needs! You will be in excellent hands!!

  • A Satisfied Client


I like to take this opportunity thank you for your steadfast professionalism and handling of my DUI. As a person who is never been through this before, I could only imagine things on a worst-case level. After looking throughout the Jefferson County area, and speaking with several other attorneys, I settled on Chris. He had a solid approach to the way things would unfold and he did not sugar coat the situation. He walked through everything logically; his dealings with me were extremely professional. He made it clear that I was in charge of my direction, and he was there to help me make the most informed and thorough decisions, after he had investigated every possible outcome. I am still reaping the benefits of his knowledge, I am extremely impressed with the way he conducts himself and his business. I can honestly say that, I had a preconceived notion about attorneys in this line of work, but I was totally taken aback by Chris and his team. I can tell you I would not hesitate to recommend him to someone who is close to me that maybe in a similar situation! Chris exercises the utmost discretion, and most of all he has compassion for his clients; he knows them, and represents them!

Thank you again, Chris for a job well done!!!

  • A Satisfied Client

Dear Mr. Cessna,

Just a brief note of thanks and appreciation for the successful handling of my case before the Jefferson County Court recently. I appreciated the timely communication from you and your office. All calls were returned promptly thank you. These were tough times for me, so your calm demeanor and expertise did much to allay my initial fears. Thank you very much, I would be more than happy to recommend you to my friends as well as my family members, should the need arise. You were the very best!

  • A Satisfied Client (After Mr. Cessna convinced the DA to dismiss his DUI/accident before litigation was necessary)

When I first met Chris he was so busy that we could only talk by phone not in person. I must admit I was a little concerned about hiring an attorney that I had never met in person. It turned out it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. If you are looking for an attorney that will mercilessly fight for you through the courts on a DUI charge Chris is that attorney. He specializes in DUI law and with the courts being as politicized as they are today you need an attorney like Chris to balance the odds that are so very against you. In my case Chris was to get my multi offense DUI reduced to a reckless driving which I might add was above and beyond what I expected. You may find Chris to be a little more money than some of the others but in my opinion and he was worth every penny.

  • A Satisfied Client (after getting his 3rd DUI dismissed at the motions hearing)

Dear Chris,

It is without a doubt that I made the best possible choice when I came to you to represent me for a third DUI I was faced with. Without your knowledge and expertise I dread to think what could have happened to me. It is because of you that my third DUI was reduced to a reckless driving ticket.

Both you and Hayley were reliable, efficient, extremely competent, and provided some much needed support through a difficult time. I would recommend you to anyone who is in need of a DUI attorney. I would like to express my sincerest gratitude for everything you have done. My family and I cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.

Thank you,

  • A Satisfied Client (This Client's 3rd DUI was dismissed after we prevailed at the motions hearing when the judge made legal findings that the arresting officer was lying under oath and fabricating events.

Hayley (Mr. Cessna’s Paralegal),

I just wanted to let you know that Chris did a wonderful job in representing my interests over the past 10 months. I really could not have asked for better legal counsel and am very happy with his services and the outcome. He is a very skilled attorney in his chosen area of focus and I will recommend him to anyone who faces the same disposition as myself.

Please pass on my gratitude to Chris (I would thank him via email but don't really have his email) and my best regards to his continued success. I thanked him in person, but feel it is necessary to thank him one last time.

Also, if Chris is ever interested in trying to get individuals together for some type of action against the Colorado DMV, I would be more than happy to contribute both financially and personally. The "unprotected" class in this state needs to have a voice and the DMV is not playing fair at the moment. I don't imagine that will end until someone finds a way to get them into a real court of law.

  • A Satisfied Client (after our office obtained a dismissal of his third DUI)

Mr. Cessna,

Thank you again so much for all of the hard work and time that you put into my case and trial. We obviously couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and we were very impressed with your professionalism and presence in the courtroom. Thanks for everything, we will definitely pass your name along and we look forward to seeing you at the (restaurant) with your family!

  • A Satisfied Client and his wife (after we won him Not Guilty Verdicts at Jury Trial)


I would like to send you a sincere note of appreciation for all you did for my son! After a year and a half of waiting, I heard that you shined in court. A friend of mines, son, who is an, attorney in Salida, CO, informed us you were the best, as long as the incident did not occur in Weld County! You did it anyway! Bless you Chris!

  • The Mother of a Satisfied Client (after obtaining Not Guilty verdicts at jury trial)


This being my first experience dealing with a legal issue, I was very fearful and nervous to be facing DUI charges. I felt much better after speaking with you. Your background and experience with the law helped to put my mind at ease and focus on the details of the case. You gave me sound advice throughout the process. Without your diligence and willingness to comb through the details, I know the outcome would have not been favorable. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into defending me. With your hard work my charges were dismissed and I could not be happier. Even the DA’s Office of Weld County knows how “good” you are. I could not help but smile when I heard the DA tell the peace officer that Mr. Cessna “is on the ball and knows his stuff”. The DA could not have been more correct! You are hands down the best DUI lawyer and you truly care about the clients you serve. I will recommend you to anyone I know that needs legal assistance. Thank you again for all you have done on my behalf.

  • A Satisfied Client (after his DUI was dismissed)

Chris & Hayley,

Thank you so much for everything. If I know anyone who needs legal help, you will be the first person they call. I can’t thank you enough! Best wishes to you both!

  • A Satisfied Client (after getting her 3rd DUI dismissed after motions hearing)

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Chris Cessna for his excellent representation in my son's DUI case. From the initial consultation through the successful culmination of the jury trial, Chris was up front, honest and immensely knowledgeable. As a mother whose instinct is to protect her child, I felt confident that my son was in the best possible hands. During the trial process, I was amazed at this ability to "think on his feet" in response to each motion, ruling and testimony. From his attention to detail, both in his legal research and during the jury trial (he knew each potential juror's name and personal information with no written notes) to his thoroughness in "leaving no stone unturned", Chris was awesome! And with Chris Cessna as your attorney, not only will you get excellent legal representation, you will get someone who genuinely cares about the person, not just the case. Thanks, Chris.

  • The Mother of a Satisfied Client Who's Son was Aquitted on all DUI Related Counts at Trial

Hi Chris, I just wanted to say, "Thank You," for all of your help and support during my case. I hope all is going great for you and I wish you the best. Take care.

"Thank you very much for all your help. I don't know how I can express my feelings and appreciation to you. It has been a long year for us - we went into depression and anger. Mr. Cessna, without you, we could have not done anything. YOU ARE THE BEST DUI ATTORNEY. You are not only a great attorney but also a great person. I am so glad that I met you. We hope to see you again. Once again, thank you very much, Mr. Cessna."

  • A Satisfied Client

"I wanted to take a moment to show my appreciation for what you have done for me. Joining the Coast Guard wasn't even part of my case. You found that out on your own when you took the time to get to know a little about me. Not as a client, but because you wanted to. Then you went out of your way and didn't just fight my case; you fought it with my future as your top priority. My son and I did not have six months to wait for our lives to get on track. You made it possible so that we did not have to wait, and my goal of joining the Coast Guard could begin right away. I can't begin to thank you enough for all that you have done for me."

  • A Satisfied Client

"I was completely satisfied with the representation, and you achieved the results I sought."

  • A Satisfied Client

"Chris is a wonderful lawyer who goes above and beyond the normal call of duty. He was able to get a DWAI charge fully dismissed in my case and made it very painless to accomplish that. I spent a total of 2 hours in court through a 3 month period, which in my opinion is unheard of in DUI cases in the state of Colorado. Chris worked diligently and had more patience than most people I have met in my lifetime. I would refer Chris to everyone I know in a DUI situation that wanted correct and valuable representation."

  • A Satisfied Client

"Chris Cessna worked diligently and explored every avenue of defense pertaining to my case. Through his perseverance, Chris got me a deal that I never thought possible."

  • A Satisfied Client(after getting her DUI dismissed)

"Dear Chris,

I want to thank you again for everything that you did for me representing me in my DUI court case. As I told you when we were leaving the court house, I truly believe that your expertise in all facets of DUI law is the reason I was able to get such a great Plea Bargain, and that no other attorney would have been able to do what you did to get the DUI dismissed.

My situation was dire, arrested for three things; 1. DUI (with an accident) 2. Leaving the Seen of an Accident 3. Careless Driving. All this with a new baby, an incredible job that supplies a company car, travel and tremendous benefits. To get convicted of a DUI would most likely cost me my job and affect my entire family since I am the sole provider. Bottom line, I could lose everything.

I immediately researched DUI attorneys and called an interviewed with the top three. It was a tough decision because I knew I was placing my future in someone else's hands. After talking with Chris on the phone a couple times I made my choice and have never looked back. What I appreciated from the beginning was his honesty, not promising me anything but the assurance that he will do everything in his power to fight for me. His honesty, integrity and DUI expertise won me over.

My case took a little over a year to get resolved and at the Motions Hearing when Chris put the arresting officer on the stand it was a thing of beauty. I mean straight out of a "Hollywood" movie. Chris dissected the facts and police reports, referred to other court case judgments. The DA looked lost, the Judge ruled in our favor, so the blood tests (1.61) and other DUI statements were not going to be admissible in court. So, the DA would not have a DUI case. I still remember after the Motions Hearing getting in the elevator and the arresting police officer congratulating Chris on doing an excellent job! Again, they could still get me with "Leaving the Seen of an Accident" and "Careless Driving", both would be enough points (16 pts) to have me lose my license. About two weeks later Chris came back with a Plea Bargain from the DA, they dropped everything, except I would need to plead to an 8 point Reckless Driving ticket.

If you are reading this then I truly know what you're going through and I can only offer you my referral and for your sake I hope you hire the best, Chris Cessna."
