Meet Attorney Joseph Anthony Lazzara

Attorney Joseph Anthony LazzaraColorado Trusted for Over 25 Years

My name is Joseph A. Lazzara, and for the last 25+ years I have focused my legal career on helping people who face criminal accusations in the state of Colorado. I strongly believe that everyone is entitled to excellent, high-quality representation, and that’s how I organize my practice here at the Law Office of Joseph A. Lazzara, P.C. I am an experienced and aggressive trial lawyer with a long track record of success. I am also proud to serve clients who have been injured and who have potential personal injury claims. Whether serving my clients in criminal or civil court, I am more than prepared to fight for their rights and interests. I am admitted to practice law in all Colorado courts.

A History of Excellence and Experience

I attribute my courtroom success at least in part to my work as a clerk to Chief Justice Opala of the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which gave me an insider’s view and an invaluable perspective of the justice system. Observing the inner workings of a State Supreme Court Judge so closely gave me an edge and the ability to effectively and intelligently represent my clients. I received my undergraduate degree from Adams State University in Colorado and my J.D. from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in Norman, Oklahoma.

A Devotion to Colorado

My goal is to give back to my community. I am recognized as one of the top trial attorneys for defense in cases involving driving under the influence (DUI) in the state of Colorado. In fact, I have earned my certification in standardized field sobriety tests in Colorado—the same training received by police officers.

I have also served as an adjunct professor at Metropolitan State College in Denver. I am a member of multiple professional legal groups including Colorado Bar Association, Colorado Criminal Defense Bar Association, the National DUI Defense Lawyers Association (of which I am a founding member), and more. I regularly appear on local TV and radio stations, like Haystack Help Radio, to provide information about the law and citizens’ rights in Colorado. I am also a proud member of Tom "The Troubleshooter" Martino’s referral list.

I am part of the National College for DUI Defense’s Top 100 and have an A+ rating with the BBB. I have also been included in the Who’s Who Among American Attorneys.
