Karen understands the complex emotions and worries of clients needing criminal defense services. She is empathetic, compassionate, and dedicated to giving her clients the time and resources they deserve.
As a family law attorney, Karen’s philosophy is that divorce cases belong in Court only as a last resort. She encourages her clients, whenever possible, to reach a resolution without the extreme trauma and expense of court litigation. However, as a trial lawyer for the past 30 years, she also knows there are times when going to court is the only way to reach a fair and equitable resolution for her client and she has no hesitation about doing so when all non-adversarial means of resolution have been exhausted.
As a former prosecutor Karen understands criminal cases from both sides. She not only has extensive trial and courtroom experience but she will provide the knowledge and expertise to help you analyze and successfully resolve your case. Karen teaches law students and attorneys how to be effective advocates in the courtroom and has served as an expert witness in criminal cases.
As a leading Denver Criminal Defense Attorney, Karen Steinhauser has been interviewed repeatedly by local and national media to provide commentary on high profile criminal cases including the Aurora theater shooting defendant, James Holmes.
