Post: Denver Criminal DXefense Lawyer Gets you results
Posted by Venkatesh Iyer on 1/24/10
Now I am a well trained, experienced, knowledgeable and
dedicated Denver criminal defense lawyer helping people
accused of crimes get a just resolution of the charges
either by winning at trial or getting a great plea bargain.
I look back on how I got to be a battle tested Denver
Here is my journey in fulfilling my father's and my dream of
being a lawyer, and in time a great human lawyer, working to
help the little people fight the powers to be (corporate and
As a very young person I had a deep sense of right and
wrong. I always felt the pain and anguish of the weakest and
most vulnerable members of society. As a kid my dad would
take me the Courts in Bombay, India. I never really
understood why Dad was always fighting with people - he was
always in court. (later on in life I realized that Dad was
the little guy always getting "screwed' by the big shots).
His choice of lawyers was not always good. I then realized I
must be the very best lawyer and serve the best interests of
my clients getting them the results they want in a cost
effective and timely manner.
At the age of about 16 years, my father died and had to fend
for myself with some help from my mother and siblings. I
knew that I had to get an education to do something with my
I completed my Masters of Commerce (equivalent to a Business
Degree) from the University of Bombay, India. I then was
admitted to practice as a Chartered Accountant (equivalent
to a Certified Public Accountant).
I worked in India and Dubai(United Arab Emirates) for many
years gaining valuable insights to people and their conduct.
I also gained financial skills during these years as an
accountant and auditor.
In 1988 I moved to Denver and worked as Controller and
Operations Manager for a very reputed jazz Club and
restaurant gaining valuable business experience. I qualified
as a Colorado Certified Public Accountant, a Certified
Management Accountant; A Certified Internal Auditor; and a
Chartered Bank Auditor.
In 1991, I moved to Los Angeles (to be closer to my mother
who was very ill being diagnosed with kidney failure,
diabetes and glaucoma) and worked for a very large
corporation in the Cellular Telephone industry. I saw first
hand how large corporations legally dominated and subjugated
the poor and helpless through artful drafting of one sided
legal documents. I knew this was grossly unfair and decided
to go out on my own. In 1994, I established my tax practice
and in 1999 I was admitted to practice before the United
States Tax Court.
In 2005, I established Iyer Law Office with a few thousand
dollars in my pocket, a computer and table. I struggled the
first two years but gained tremendous experience and
insight into defending the accused. I gained the trust and
respect of my clients, the prosecutors, the judges, and my
peers. In a short period a time, I gained the trust of the
community and now have a successful law practice; primarily
focused in Criminal and Juvenile Defense. I soon realized
that I need actual training my other great lawyers to better
serve my clients.
So from 2006 through 2007, I attended Bill Trine (Colorado
Super Lawyer) trial skills training camp. I was transforming
and understanding the "inner me" as a lawyer.
Bill Trine helped me get into Gerry Spence's Trial Lawyers'
College, Wyoming, in 2008; and I again was trained for
three weeks by America's Best Lawyers. I put to test the
techniques in actual trial and began to win trials and
getting better plea bargains.
In 2009, the National Criminal Defense College admitted me
to attend their most prestigious residential trial training
program on a scholarship where I was trained by the most
pre-eminent of trial lawyers in the country.
In 2008, the State Court Administrator's office appointed me
to represent parents in the 13th Judicial District in
Dependency and Neglect cases.
Since 2005 I have helping people defend against criminal,
dui/dwai, juvenile delinquency charges, and dependency and
neglect cases filed against them by the State of Colorado.
