Attorney Profile

When my firm was founded, its vision was clear – To Protect and Defend the Accused. I personally dedicate myself to your defense, because I understand that a conviction for any crime can create roadblocks in your life, jeopardize your career, or even worse, land you in prison.

My goal is to provide the best representation for my clients through fierce litigation and persuasive negotiation. I get to know my clients personally and will individually tailor each client’s defense.

Whether it’s a DUI, a homicide, or sexual assault – I treat and defend all of my clients with the same level of vigilance and dedication. My mission is to always be better prepared than the prosecution. Experience has taught me that when I front-end a case, I achieve better results either at trial or through relentless negotiation.

I, Dana M. Casper, am a highly qualified attorney you CAN trust. Widely respected amongst my peers, judges and prosecutors throughout Colorado, I bring more than 20 years legal experience to the table. I have tried over 100 cases to juries, litigated countless motions and negotiated thousands of pleas. You can count on me to represent you in the most diligent, sensitive and dedicated way, regardless of the charge or jurisdiction.


Dana M. Casper has been practicing law and defending the rights of those accused since 1991. With a family legacy of public service, Dana became intensely interested in human rights and advocating for those in need. Helping people was not a conscious choice she made –rather it was simply a way of life. Dana’s drive toward public service naturally manifested itself into a career in criminal defense after graduation from Colorado College in 1986.


During law school at the University of Denver, Dana discovered a gift for courtroom advocacy. Having served in the Public Defender’s offices in both Riverside County, California and later Arapahoe County, Colorado, Dana developed a strong expertise in defending all varieties of criminal cases.

In order to devote more time and attention to each and every client, Dana left the Public Defender’s Office in 2002 for private practice.


Dana is currently a member of the Colorado State Bar; the California Bar and the United States District Court of Colorado. Dana received her Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver School of Law and her undergraduate degree from Colorado College with a double major in Political Science and Economics.

Dana represents indigent clients both as member of the Alternate Defense Counsel for the State of Colorado and the Criminal Justice Act Panel for the United States District Court. Dana is a member of the Colorado Bar Association; Denver Bar Association; Colorado Criminal Defense Bar; Colorado Women’s Bar Association; and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. Dana also mentors law students and volunteers regularly for the 9-news law line, fielding questions from the public about criminal law.


She is also Lead Counsel Rated with the approval of the Lead Counsel Review Board in the area of criminal law, felonies and misdemeanors.

At this time in your life, you need an attorney you can trust. An attorney who can successfully guide you through the litigation process and fiercely defend you through trial or negotiations in order to secure the best possible resolution for your situation. You need Dana M. Casper.

You have inalienable rights under the Colorado and US Constitutions, and my experience will find every reliable resource, examine every possible solution, and tirelessly defend your rights and your freedom.
