About Matthew Hand
Matthew Hand is a trial lawyer dedicated to protecting you in criminal cases and obtaining compensation for you if you’ve been injured. Mr. Hand earned his bachelor’s degree with high honors from New York University in 1998, and in 2005 graduated with honors from the prestigious New York University School of Law.
As a deputy district attorney in Adams County, Mr. Hand developed his trial skills and expertise in criminal law. Mr. Hand also saw first-hand that the system is flawed. It is a system of laws—some good, some bad– run by people, and even well-meaning people have flaws. When you are caught up in this system—guilty or innocent– you need an ally. As a criminal defense lawyer, Mr. Hand works tirelessly to ensure fair treatment and good results for his clients. The same zeal and thoroughness helps Mr. Hand get excellent results for victims of DUI and car accidents.
Prior to practicing law, Matthew Hand was a successful options trader on the floors of the American Stock Exchange and the New York Board of Trade (remember the movie Trading Places?). The high stakes competition of the trading floors prepared him for life in the courtroom. In both places, success depends on confidence, intelligence, and an ability to communicate well under pressure. Matthew Hand deeply enjoys the challenge of representing his clients in court.
In his free time, Matt makes the most of the Colorado outdoors by biking, skiing, golfing, and camping. Matt plays poker whenever he can, but not well enough to quit his day job. He is an avid football fan, and roots for the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos.
