I am a former Deputy District Attorney in Arapahoe County and Douglas County. I understand the DA's office and their decision making process. Because there are so many criminal cases across the Denver metro area and in Weld, Larimer, and Boulder County, prosecutors have to study their cases quickly and make uninformed decisions. This process is very important and can be unfair if government lawyers don't know the whole story. Many times, the accused face their charges without a criminal defense lawyer and enter into plea bargains they regret for years. This does not need to happen.

As a criminal defense attorney, my goal is to educate my clients about their charges and the consequences they face. I wrestle with prosecutors for the fair treatment of my clients and to expose false allegations. I make sure they are fully informed as to what really happened. The judicial process can become complicated for outsiders. I want to protect people and help them make informed decisions to protect their rights and get the best possible result.

I attended Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. I then moved across the country to earn my Juris Doctorate law degree at the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. After enjoying my time studying in Colorado, I decided to make Denver my new home.

I graduated law school in Denver with a strong desire to serve our community, so I became a Deputy District Attorney with the Eighteenth Judicial District. As a prosecutor, I managed hundreds of criminal cases and tried dozens of those cases before a jury. I handled my cases, like those involving assaults, domestic violence (DV), DUI and DWAI, and sex offenses, in an ethical manner focused on justice. Knowing I could do more outside the limitations of government, I decided to enter private practice following 2 years as a DDA. I now work as a full-time criminal defense attorney at the O'Malley Law Office. Here, I can use my inside knowledge to make a difference for those overcharged or falsely accused.
