    “I knew his actions were in my best interest at all times.”
    I was confused, scared and grieving. I sat down to interview a lawyer named BRIAN CLOSE, at Susan Fuller & Assoc. I instantly felt the professionalism and knowledge this man had in many aspects of law. Divorce, civil, common law and more. I want to say the comfort I felt by placing my case in his hands was an overwhelming relief as I moved through a very challenging divorce and civil suit. I was challenged at every angle. Brian never made me feel intimidated nor insecure in decisions I had to make. Brian Close always took the time to explain my case and covered every angle. At times I just wanted to give up and give in. He took the time to make sure I understood everything that I didn't understand. I knew his actions were in my best interest at all times. With that, I hung in there and the day my cases were settled, I was overwhelmed with relief and success. This was a direct result from working with such a professional. The entire firm welcomed me and I can't say enough about everyone at the firm who conferred on my case. Right down to the paralegals and front office. Thank you for making this chapter of my life safe and secure under your direction.

    “I could write a book waxing on about his expertise, and professional and kind demeanor.”

    Great legal services were provided to my daughter and I during her dissolution of marriage, and a couple of related matters after that. Our Attorney, Brian Close, was fantastic! I could write a book waxing on about his expertise, and professional and kind demeanor. The office's supporting staff were always professional and helpful as well. It feels like the office works together to provide the help and legal support needed during difficult times. I am extremely grateful that we were able to be represented by Brian Close of Fuller & Ahern, P.C.!

    - Carol A.
    “James is very calm and wants his clients to feel at ease by providing expectations ahead of time.”
    I definitely recommend the Fuller & Ahern law firm. From the beginning, James worked very hard to ensure my side was heard by the district attorney. He worked behind the scenes to help navigate me out of the criminal system. It is evident he has a lot of experience and is very smart. Facing any type of criminal charges is very scary and life-changing. Going to the courtroom can be daunting. James is very calm and wants his clients to feel at ease by providing expectations ahead of time. He assesses the situation and continuously works to ensure his clients get the best deal possible. Clients shouldn't expect a lot of face-to-face time but should be confident he is doing his job. I am so thankful for his help, expertise, and willingness to quickly take on my case.
    - Lauren L.
    “James was a true professional while keeping a personal touch.”
    I reached out to James Ahern at Fuller & Ahern, P.C. for legal trouble I was involved in. I was inexperienced and needed direction. Once James became involved, he guided me through the legal proceedings and gave me advice and possible outcomes throughout our work together. James was a true professional while keeping a personal touch. I would highly recommend James to anyone going through legal troubles.
    - Mark M.
    “I am very grateful for his dedication and care with my case.”
    “So thankful I found this amazing law office! Brian Close is off-the-charts intelligent, I would actually say he is a genius at what he does.”
    - Mary A.

Prefiling Matters & Arrest Warrants

If you are under investigation for criminal charges, it is vital that you consult with an attorney immediately. Do not talk with police or other law enforcement officers without a defense attorney. Despite what law enforcement officers may tell you, they are not likely to contact you to help you in your defense.

Our attorneys have successfully resolved numerous cases at the prefiling stage, resulting in no formal charges being filed. If charges are filed against you, and a warrant for your arrest is issued, we will work with law enforcement and the district attorney’s office to facilitate turning you in on the warrant on your terms and help minimize the impact on your daily life as much as possible. 

Why Turn to Fuller & Ahern, P.C.?

Our team understands that criminal charges can embroil you in a complicated, confusing, and intimidating process. The results can have immediate and long-term effects on your life that we will work to help you minimize or avoid. 

Our lawyers are not intimidated by the system. Let us provide you with the experienced and aggressive criminal defense representation you need at this difficult time.

We have a successful record in defending drivers against these and other DUI charges throughout Colorado.
