I enjoy client advocacy – especially in the courtroom. The quote below is from a juror who contacted me after a recent trial I won, and I hope it reflects the way I try to work in the courtroom for all of my clients. However, I also know that the legal system can be intimidating for people, and so one of the most rewarding aspects of this profession for me is when I can give my clients emotional, as well as legal, support. My goal with each client is to successfully vindicate their rights, and to help them through the process with a lot less emotional discomfort, as well. When I can help my clients with both a favorable outcome and help them to sleep better during their time of crisis, I know I am succeeding.

“Wadi, I wanted to connect with you to tell you that I was impressed with the job you did over the past 2 weeks. You spoke with purpose only when needed. Your comments were pointed and direct. When surrounded by adversity you maintained focus. Your speaking ability never blundered during examination. You served your client well and should be proud of the job you did.”

Wadi Muhaisen, Esq. – Partner

Wadi Muhaisen is a founding partner of Muhaisen & Muhaisen LLC; he conducts civil and criminal trials, and has won numerous bench and jury trials for clients all over Colorado.  He has appeared before most types of courts in Colorado and has litigated civil cases and serious felonies from inception to trial.

PRACTICE AREAS
Civil Litigation, Criminal Defense, Juvenile Law and Defense, Dependency and Neglect.

Confronting a criminal law matter or major lawsuit can be extremely stressful and unsettling
The main reason Wadi’s criminal defense and litigation practices have become so successful is the personal attention he devotes to each client.

When you retain Wadi, he is the attorney who will personally handle your trial if it comes to that, and he will ensure that all avenues are exhausted when dealing with law enforcement, prosecutors, opposing attorneys, and judges on behalf of each of his clients. Wadi makes sure that his clients understand each step of the legal process and he will be at your side the entire time.

Actual Trial Experience and Record of Success
One of the best kept secrets is that many of the area’s “top litigators” and “trial attorneys” have actually not conducted many actual jury trials. In contrast, Wadi has won dozens of trials for clients in all types of cases and against the so-called “top law firms” in the country. Wadi is ready to help you in your case. TRIAL TESTED – Examples
