David C. Japha, admitted to the Colorado State Bar and the U.S. District Court, District of Colorado, has earned a reputation for resolving difficult and complex legal matters, being the second or third lawyer to take on a case. David has tried many criminal and civil cases to conclusion and argued numerous appeals, post-conviction cases and cases involving mental health issues. He began his legal career in litigation before leaving the University of Denver College of Law, where he tried his first DUI case in state court through a program called the student law office. In 1984, he argued his first administrative appeal before the Social Security Administration, before his law school graduation. Soon after, he worked for the law firm Don Jacobson and Daniel Levin, where he learned law office management hanging out his shingle and doing evictions, collections and court-appointed federal criminal cases. And, it was there, in federal court, that David truly cut his teeth in criminal defense litigation, culminating in his appointment to the Criminal Justice Act committee (which oversaw the appointment of conflict counsel in federal court) by then-Chief Judge Richard Matsch. Mr. Japha currently represents clients in federal and state administrative matters, including ongoing matters before the Consumer Products Safety Commission. David’s main focus in providing personal service and concern for individuals.
With over 30 years of practice, David has had the opportunity to be involved in some amazing cases, including taking depositions in Katmandu, Nepal in a complex criminal case in 1991; representing a witness in the trial of Timothy McVeigh (where David was also a credentialed reporter for the Intermountain Jewish News); handling criminal matters in Nebraska, Kansas and California and appearing in Washington State. David has been an expert witness for the Colorado.
Mr. Japha is a graduate of the University of Denver, J.D. His secret to success has been good fortune, amazing clients and a supportive family.
