    Excellent representation
By Nicholas Romano

Mr. Lazzara provided me with excellent legal counsel and representation in court. He is professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. He is the only attorney I will use in the future. Highly recommend.

    Excellent DUI defense attorney
By Andrew

I contacted Joseph Lazzara for information regarding my options after being charged with a DUI. He responded to me within the next day and was immediately available to explain my legal situation in depth before I hired him for his services. He was up front with details of his legal fees which were very affordable for this type of defense, especially considering the charges were in a county on the western slope. Throughout the entire process Joe was transparent and helped coach me along the way. As this was my first situation involving a legal proceeding, he was very thorough in helping me understand what was going on and provided detailed information when requested. With his diligence and expertise, Joe found multiple issues with the case and he was able to achieve dismissal at both the DMV hearing and district court cases. If you find yourself in a similar situation, I would not hesitate to contact Joseph Lazzara for legal assistance right away.

By Heather

Obviously from the second you get a DUI/DWAI, you feel small and scared (at least this is how I felt) and unsure about what laid ahead. I went online to look for reviews of an attorney my friend had referred me to, luckily I had because he only had 2 stars and was on probation w the Bar Assoc. Luckily, I saw a review of Joseph A Lazzara; he had raving reviews so I made a phone call that day to schedule a consultation. From the beginning thru the end…Joe explained everything that was ahead of me (the unknown was the scariest part of the entire process for me). Both he and his office staff were great at communication and fighting for the best outcome and have continued to assist with any additional questions, including representing me w/ my DMV hearing. He fought for me to keep my license and even helped me get a reduction of my therapy track after I completed everything the court had asked of me. He helped me save time away from my family and money I would have spent on additional therapy sessions, even the judge said he rarely reduced his original decision. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Joseph Lazzara for anyone facing any charges within the court system, he will fight for you until the end!

    Joseph Lazzara is a "Rock Star" DUI defense attorney.
By Susan

Joseph Lazzara is a “Rock Star” DUI defense attorney. He has been practicing criminal law for 20+ years in the Denver metro area, and it definitely shows. He has a “long track record of success,” and I can gratefully add to it - twice. Joe represented me on my second and, most recently, third DUI charge. In both cases he won the DMV hearings and court hearings. All the evidence and charges were dismissed in both cases without ever going to jury trials due to his highly skilled criminal defense strategies. Joe’s overall client guidance and case management is superb. His courtroom performance is amazing. He is extraordinarily talented in defending criminal law, constitutional rights, and maneuvering through the criminal justice system. He is an above average, smooth, smart, and well respected lawyer who certainly knows how to get the job done. Joe saved me two times from losing my driver’s license and going to jail. The facts prove, you can’t get a better DUI defense attorney than Joseph Lazzara. He is a “hero” in every sense of the word. Amen to that!

    Joe Lazzara, Esq.
By S.W.

Joseph A. Lazzara is an amazing, superb, top-notch criminal defense lawyer. It is with tremendous respect and admiration I can speak about Joe Lazzara, Esq. He successfully defended me five years ago in my DUI case and DMV license revocation hearing, obtaining outcomes of dismissal for both. Now Mr. Lazzara is defending me on another DUI charge, and so far, has again obtained dismissal of my DMV license revocation due to his solid knowledge of the law and expertise in defending individuals’ legal rights. Joe is intelligent, articulate, highly skilled and experienced. You can count on him to be well prepared, knowing the laws specifically applicable for defending your case. He provides strategic guidance and coaches on what to say and what not to say for answering questions and speaking on your own personal behalf. The criminal justice system is a lot to wrestle with - Joe will give you the confidence and peace of mind required to be successful. He is an honest, trustworthy, caring legal expert who treats his clients with dignity and respect. From my own experience, Joseph A. Lazzara certainly will “protect your rights and fight for your future.”

    Got me out of a stupid bind
By Andrew Coop

Lazarra is awesome. I ran into some baseless criminal charges and he was immediately available and professional. If you are willing to be held accountable then he's your man!

    True Client
By ***

I sought out Joe based on his recommendation from Tom Martino and his other reviews. I can say that I was not disappointed. My DUI case was in El Paso County and was an extensive drive for him. I had no less than five required appearances in the court. If Joe was unable to attend due to other court obligations, he ensured that he sent the best local DUI attorney to represent me. Between Joe and his team, he was able to get my conviction reduced to DWAI and a deferred sentence. During sentencing he argued against a very harsh judge which was recommending me to attend 42 hours of alcohol therapy and won. I would recommend Joe and his team to anyone who screwed up and needs a defense!

    Great Outcome

    Against All Odds
By LMP45888

I highly recommend Joseph A. Lazzara for personal injury cases. After hiring another well-known personal injury law firm, who offered horrible advice, I sought his second opinion. He was frank and honest about my options. I finally felt like I had someone who really cared about my health and well-being. He settled my case and I couldn't have been happier. Mr. Lazzara is extremely knowledgeable, confident and has an exemplary reputation.

    Very Pleased
By AliciaH

The attorney was compassionate and a pit bull in court. He fought for me the entire way and ultimately won my case at trial. The one thing I can say is he was very thorough and knew more about DUIs than even the police officer or DA. Pros:Knowledgeable and a Fighter Cons:NONE

    Life Saver

My daughter got cross ways with the local police department and it was bumped up to the county level. Mr. Lazzara worked on her case for approximately 9 months and got the 5 original charges reduced to 1 charge, a reasonable and workable solution. I would recommend Mr. Lazzara without hesitation if you find yourself up against the 'system'. He is absolutely your best choice. Pros:The best legal defense you are going to find anywhere. Cons:Absolutely NONE!!!!

Joe Lazzara did a a great job. I was always informed of what was going on and received copies of everything. I am very happy with the result. His staff was also incredible and compassionate. Great choice for an attorney.

By Jay King

I was working in a residential community and made a bad choice regarding property trespass. I did not realize how serious the consequences. Later that day, a police detective left a voice mail, which made me very concerned. While searching for a lawyer on line, I heard on the radio that Tom Martino speaking highly about Joseph Lazzara. He was in court, so I left details of what happened to his secretary. After speaking to Mr. Lazzara, he recommend I should have a lawyer call on my behalf to find out the charges against me. He was concerned I might say something that could hurt me in court. He agreed to call for me, without discussing a fee. After a long talk with the detective, Mr. Lazzara called me back and said I was lucky. He got the detective to drop all charges. I was so relieved and thanked Mr. Lazzara again and again. Mr. Lazzara was very professional and showed exceptional concern and interest for me. He showed me he cares about regular people. I will certainly call him if I need a lawyer in the future.

    Excellent Lawyer
By Tracy Berton

I'm so glad I hired Joe Lazzara to help me through my court battle. I was so afraid that my ticket would ruin my life and my career. Joe handled my case with professionalism and made me feel like my case was a priority. He got a deferred sentence for me so the offence will be removed from my record after 2 years. I'm thrilled with the help I got from Joe Lazarra and would highly recommend him.

By Kim

Joseph Lazzara and his staff were amazing. He has the experience, training, and skill that you look for in an attorney. He was able to get my case dismissed. I almost didn't hire an attorney but I am so glad I hired Joseph Lazzara!!! I almost went with someone else because they were cheaper. Joe is worth every penny.

    Highest Recommendation
By Joy

After looking into Joseph Lazzara's qualifications as a DUI attorney I hired him and have had no regrets. He assessed and immediately demonstrated the necessary concern, aggressiveness, knowledge and experience I needed. As an attorney who had an unusual and astounding experience having this case in the first place, I am able to give Mr. Lassarra the highest recommendation.

    Highest Recommendation
By Patricia

I was fortunate to have found Mr. Lazarra through this website. Joe has nineteen years experience with DUI cases in several Colorado counties. My case had several complications that gave Joe a challenge to work with. He patiently took me through the entire process, from DMV hearing through Pre-Sentencing Investigation (My case took five months). Joe Lazarra really performs in the courtroom, and is mindful of every detail of your case so as to foil any curveballs. His friendly staff always mailed reminders of court dates and were available to answer any questions. Because of his skilled representation, I received a fair judgment, with reduced charges—thereby saving me a lot of time and money.
