About The Office
The Law Office of Matthew Hand was founded on the belief that anyone facing criminal charges deserves an exceptional defense. An exceptional defense requires at least two things: first, a lawyer who is a true trial lawyer, who can win an acquittal when there are no other options. Second, a lawyer who understands the client’s dilemma, and makes it his job to minimize the impact the criminal charges have on the client’s life.
The Law Office of Matthew Hand provides exceptional criminal defense. You will be kept well-informed throughout your case. Evidence, strategy, collateral consequences and more will be discussed with you so that at all times, you understand your options. If you have to take a plea offer, you will know that no stone was unturned before we reached that decision, and that we got the best possible plea offer. If we go to trial, we go thoroughly prepared and with a plan to win.
The Law Office consists of a single attorney, former prosecutor Matthew Hand. You will never be handed off to an inexperienced associate– if you hire me, you get me for every critical stage of the case. You also get the benefit of my network of investigators, experts and process servers that the Law Office works with on a case by case basis. You only pay for these services if needed in your case, which keeps our regular rates more affordable.
An initial consultation is always free. If I can help you, I will. Call any time to discuss your case: (303) 900-8480.
About Matthew Hand
Matthew Hand is a trial lawyer dedicated to defending your rights and protecting your reputation, career, and family. 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.
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 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 defending his clients in court.
In his free time, Matt makes the most of the Colorado outdoors by biking, skiing, golfing, and camping. He is an avid football fan, and roots for the New York Giants & the Denver Broncos.
