In July of 2010, I attended the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers' College in Dubois, Wyoming. I spent 3 weeks from 9 am to 9 pm learning from and with the best trial lawyers in the nation. I practice the TLC method regularly with other Colorado TLC graduates. This method tells the story of the case successfully for my clients. It is the best way to get justice. For more information or to find a TLC lawyer in another state, please go to Trials Lawyers College Website  In 1997, I began my career as a Colorado Public Defender in El Paso County and later worked at the Adams County and Steamboat offices.

There is a lot to say about this case. If the roles were reversed, Mr. Botham Jean would probably face the death penalty for shooting a white, female cop in her apartment. Heck, the only reason anyone considered the defense at all is because she was a police officer. If it were two citizens, accident would not have been much of a consideration. And it would not have made the news. It is also unlikely a citizen would have been so quick to shoot and kill.

This is a tragedy no matter what. Mr. Jean and his family would suffer regardless of the trial result and sentence. Convictions do not cure pain. Closure does not come in the courtroom. (There will be appeals, too.) Dealing with the pain of losing someone, or the pain of being a victim of a violent crime or sexual crime takes more than any court can give. I recommend therapy. If anyone promises you closure through a conviction, they are lying to you and they know it and you should seek other sources for your healing. Read More
