1. I practice Criminal, DUI, and Juvenile Defense Law solely because I am passionate in helping people successfully navigate the complex criminal justice system.

    I know and have experienced being charged with crimes; and know the fears, anxiety and concern passing through the body of what could possibly happen to my life, freedom, and future. I understand and empathize with those who come to my criminal defense law firm seeking my help and expertise to resolve their case. I will always work very hard and smart to find sensible and workable solutions to their problems. I care for each and every client and the results they get.

    I know what it feels like to be falsely accused; to face the juggernaut of the criminal justice system and the government with all of its resources against the little guy. Even the richest and the mightiest of persons is little when compared to the awesome powers and resources of the government.

    I am a well trained, experienced, knowledgeable and dedicated Denver Criminal Defense Lawyer helping people accused of crimes get a just and fair resolution to 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 and successful Denver Criminal Lawyer.

    Here is my journey in fulfilling my father's and my dream of being a lawyer, and in time a great human being, working to help the little people fight the powers to be (corporate and government) ...

    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 to 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 that I must be the very best lawyer and serve the best interests of my clients by getting them the results they want in a cost effective and timely manner.

    At the age of about 16 years, my father died and I 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 life.

    I completed my Masters of Commerce (equivalent to a Business Degree) from the University of Bombay, India. A few later, I 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 into 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 a 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 - 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 the 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, LLC, with a few thousand dollars in my pocket, a computer and table. I struggled the first two years but gained tremendous experience and insights 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 criminal defense law practice; primarily focused in Criminal, DUI, and Juvenile Defense. I soon realized that I needed actual training by other great lawyers to better serve my clients.

    Since 2005, I am helping people defend against criminal, dui/dwai, juvenile delinquency charges, and dependency and neglect cases filed against them by the State of Colorado.

    So from 2006 through 2007, I attended Bill Trine (Colorado Super Lawyer) trial skills training camp. I was transforming as a human being and understanding the "inner me" as a lawyer.

    Bill Trine guided me get to 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 these techniques in actual trial and began to win trials and getting better plea bargains.

    Since 2008, the Colorado State Court Administrator's Office appointed me to represent parents in Dependency and Neglect cases within the 13th Judicial District.

    In 2009, the National Criminal Defense College admitted me, on a scholarship, to attend their most prestigious residential trial training program (over 2 weeks) where I was trained by the most pre-eminent of trial lawyers in the country.

    In 2010, The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, offered me a scholarship to attend their Super Defenses seminar program in Austin, Texas.

    Each year I am committed in obtaining more than 40 to 50 continuing education hours in order to continuously improve my skills and expertise so that I may better serve my clients by getting them the results they want and deserve; as well as be the very best criminal defense lawyer in Colorado and possibly in our beloved country, the United States of America.
