    David knows how to navigate the Federal Judicial system and despite the seriousness of my charges he made sure I was treated fairly and with respect every step of the way.

    Getting a letter hand delivered by U.S. Postal Inspectors from the Justice Department informing me that I was a "target" of a mail fraud investigation was very scary. I had never been charged with a crime before so this was new territory for me to navigate. The charges were being brought in Colorado even though I lived in another state. I found several attorneys in Colorado by doing a Google search and after speaking with a few by telephone I chose David Owen Jr. because of his years of Federal experience, the way he answered my questions and his reassuring no BS manor. David knows how to navigate the Federal Judicial system and despite the seriousness of my charges he made sure I was treated fairly and with respect every step of the way. David made sure I was released on my own recognizance without bail for the duration of the ordeal. He accompanied me to all meetings where my attendance was required either by the Justice Department attorneys or the Probation Department as well as court appearances looking out for and protecting me. David never lost patience with me despite my numerous emails and phone calls which were all rapidly responded to. David held my hand throughout the ordeal constantly reassuring me that I would be treated fairly and would get the best result possible. Behind the scenes he spent countless hours preparing documents, speaking with the U.S. Attorney's office and the Probation Department to help secure my freedom. David's manor is direct and projects a trustworthiness that always made me feel I was in good hands. He was a teacher when necessary, a counselor when necessary and always an advocate with my best interest at heart. I met David as a stranger and now consider him a friend.

    David went above and beyond to help me

    David went above and beyond to help me, even when my case began as something that would be resolved quick and easy, and became a case that took a lot of his time. He was always available when I called, and treated me with kindness, respect, and honesty. I was blessed to have his help through such a difficult and challenging time.

    David gave my brother and me all the care and personal attention we needed and he provided a strong and creative defense for my brother.

    The day before Labor Day weekend in 2009, my brother in CO called me to help him find a lawyer, he had been arrested and charged with a felony for stalking. He was scared and frustrated with the false charges against him. Imagine trying to find a lawyer in CO, the day before a holiday weekend, and doing this remotely (I live in VA). I did the first thing I could think of - Googled criminal defense attorneys in the area. I had never hired a defense attorney before, so this was a new process for my brother and me. After sorting through a number of profiles and thinking about what qualities would be important in an attorney to represent my brother, I came up with the following criteria: 1. 24-hour service availability (since it was Labor Day weekend, I needed someone available immediately), 2. Seasoned experience with defense cases of this type, 3. Private practice attorney - I wanted to choose the attorney I selected, not have a firm partner choose my attorney for me, 4. Patience - as this whole legal process would be a new experience for my brother and me, I felt these criteria were very important. Based on these criteria, I selected David Owen right away. He was the first and only attorney I called because I was pleased with him immediately. He answered the call right away and was available and immediately set up a consultation with my brother in jail. His fee structure was fair and reasonable for a defense. I was impressed with his experience and felt he was fully qualified to provide the best defense for my brother. On the first day I spoke with him, he took the time to hear what I knew about the case and quickly developed a game plan. When he met with my brother in jail, he was able to put my brother at ease and David kept us informed on a regular basis via email or phone. He was always available for my brother and me with any questions, even if they were simply educational in nature about court proceedings and expectations. I found David to be extremely patient with my brother and me, especially during times where he probably had to re-explain the purpose of hearings and other court proceedings multiple times. David gave my brother and me all the care and personal attention we needed and he provided a strong and creative defense for my brother. We are very pleased with the defense David provided and the outcome. My brother did not have to spend any more time in jail and his record is clean. I applaud David's ability to research opportunities and develop creative tactics to produce a strong defense. His use of video tape, private investigator and psychologist proved to be key elements of the defense. I also found David's no nonsense tactics and negotiating abilities to be top notch. I cannot thank David Owen enough for all of the personal attention and care he gave my brother and me. He is a fantastic defense attorney and a wonderful person.

    Mr. Owen stayed in touch with me regularly, worked on my case beyond ordinary office hours, thoroughly explored all potential avenues of my defense.

    I first chose David Owen to represent me based merely on his experience as a defense attorney in state and federal courts, but his personal and professional qualities, as much as his experience, would compel me to recommend him to others. Throughout the term of the lengthy and stressful legal process, Mr. Owen stayed in touch with me regularly, worked on my case beyond ordinary office hours, thoroughly explored all potential avenues of my defense, and proved a caring and compassionate -- not to mention tenacious -- representative in court. While the former aspects of his character are for the most part requisite for any decent lawyer, the latter made him, for me, a truly exceptional one. The legal machinery of the United States is faceless and impersonal, eager to take care of its business, quick to lump an individual into a collective criminal class, and ironically loath to recognize unique and divergent aspects of the event for which one appears in court; it takes a special kind of attorney to make that machinery see a defendant as a human being. Through his sterling advocacy on my behalf, his carefully crafted defense, his ability to deconstruct the prosecution's arguments, and above all his attention to the particularities of my case and my needs, David Owen did that for me. I am forever grateful.

    David Owen is a no nonsense straight forward attorney that I would highly recommend to anybody in need of a strong legal defense.

    Last summer I was wrongfully accused of a crime. Having a completely clean record and never having to deal with police before, I was lost. The police were calling me nonstop and threatening to issue a felony warrant for my arrest. I searched for attorneys in the county where the incident occurred and I found David Owen. David answered my call immediately and agreed to represent me. David then promptly contacted the police department and was able to convince a very uncooperative detective to arrange an interview the next day without issuing a warrant. I met with David before the interview where I was put at ease. He was able to explain to me how the system works, what to expect, the questions I would be asked, the defense that I could use and many legal nuances that I was unaware of. Having an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished attorney with me during my interrogation was essential. David gave me confidence and did not allow the detective to "bully" me in any way. Subsequently, the felony charges against me were deemed "unfounded". For the next couple of months I called David several times with questions about the legal process and the case against me. David always had time to talk to me and most importantly counsel and educate me about the legal system and my defense. The final outcome was favorable and the case will be dismissed. David Owen is a no nonsense straight forward attorney that I would highly recommend to anybody in need of a strong legal defense.

    A good doctor or a good lawyer can render invaluable service to their community. In this respect, Colorado is lucky to have Dave.

    I was a well-regarded psychiatry and pain management specialist with a flourishing practice in Oklahoma City. I am married and father of two school aged children. It is a well-known fact that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has launched a brutal war against pain doctors. Over the past decade, they have imprisoned or destroyed several thousands of innocent doctors. The only crime of these doctors- treatment of chronic pain patients with FDA approved narcotic analgesics. I am 100 percent innocent but am one such unfortunate victim. I was indicted on 53 counts of illegal distribution of controlled medications including five overdose deaths. The penalty included five life sentences. The feds have overwhelming supremacy and a 93 percent conviction rate. My family and I faced total catastrophe and were devastated. My pretrial motions, handled by my first attorneys, ended on a very dismal note. The prospect of spending the rest of my life in prison appeared to be a certainty. There was darkness and despair everywhere and we simply did not know where to look. At this stage, we were introduced to Mr. David L. Owen Jr., a criminal defense lawyer from Highlands Ranch, CO. In a span of only six weeks, Dave turned things around, working diligently and purposefully. He organized a superb defense team, selecting and coordinating eminent medical experts. He came and stayed in Oklahoma City for a whole month and poured his heart and soul into my case, almost as if he was working on a family member's case. He meticulously selected defense witnesses. Although not lawyers, we were very impressed by Dave's encyclopedic legal knowledge and acumen. Dave's performance during the trial was masterly and beyond that of any other lawyer I have encountered. All our friends who attended the proceedings were also full of praise for him. Dave worked day and night to hone my skills and as a result, my performance on the witness stand was remarkable. Every morning, when I left for court, I was not sure whether I was leaving my family permanently. Thanks to Dave's eloquence, mastery of the law and trial skills, he was able to point out errors in the prosecution's case, effectively destroying the credibility of the government's witnesses and induced doubts in the jury resulting in a hung jury and mistrial being declared. The prosecution finally realized the strength of my innocence and were considering dismissing the charges. The DEA nevertheless was intent on drawing my blood. The prosecution brought in superseding information of Medicaid fraud related to upcoding of some visits and offered a deal of pleading guilty to one Medicaid count and in return, dismissal of all drug charges. Facing a potential life term if the drug charges were reopened, I accepted this deal. Under intense DEA pressure, the prosecution pressed hard for upward departure but Dave convinced the judge to keep the sentence within the guidelines. Furthermore, the Feds were recommending restitution of $1,71,000 but Dave knew the law well and had it reduced to only $92. He also had the lis pendens on our house lifted. These steps averted a financial disaster as my family is hard pressed for funds. Dave is truly a brilliant lawyer and second to none in the legal profession. More importantly, he is a very compassionate and fine human being. He provided us cogent moral support and encouragement thru those dark days. Knowing our financial hardship, he charged us a nominal amount, just a fraction of what a professional of his caliber is entitled to. No words of thanks are enough for what Dave has done for my family and me. He was a Godsend. Until our last breath, we all are indebted to him. And we say this with all our heart. A good doctor or a good lawyer can render invaluable service to their community. In this respect, Colorado is lucky to have Dave.

    David is an outstanding criminal defense attorney.

    David is an outstanding criminal defense attorney. David knows the Federal system in and out and all of the players on the other side. I had hired a high powered criminal defense attorney with 30 years of experience that I fired after a year of representing me because I finally realized he did not have the experience in the Federal system and how important it was for someone to completely understand how to practice law in the Federal System. If I had not changed attorney's I would have gone to prison for 3 years and David will probably get me probation. David was a pleasure to work with and was always on top of things. If you are charged with a Federal crime you need a good lawyer that practices a lot in the Federal system and David is exceptional. I highly recommend hiring David as our attorney you will be glad that you did.

    I could have had a horrible outcome if I did not have a lawyer like David fighting for my rights!!

    I had the pleasure of finding David Owen while researching lawyers that assist in computer criminal cases. I originally hired a lawyer whom had no idea what he was dealing with, let alone the knowledge regarding laws in such a "new and changing field" as technology. Luckily, I called David. He answered immediately and had 20 times the information for me in a 30 minute conversation than the original lawyer I already paid could tell me. I immediately fired my prior lawyer and grateful I had, because in my case, I most likely wouldn't have had as good of an outcome if I did. David is someone whom was very knowledgeable and familiar with this specialty section of law. As soon as I called David, he immediately answered, and was willing to discuss my case. He arranged an appointment to meet me and had very reasonable prices in comparison to my prior lawyer. The prior lawyer was not even going to attend the initial court sessions with me? David was with me the every step of the way making a stressful situation, seem like a breeze!! David was exceptional in communication and attempting to get the best result for my case. I would highly recommend David Owen in regards to a multiple variety of cases. Regarding my specific situation, and as a health care professional, I could have had a horrible outcome if I did not have a lawyer like David fighting for my rights!!

    I put my complete trust in David and my case was ultimately dismissed and charges dropped. I can now move on with my life as if the situation had never happened.

    Early this summer I was charged with a crime. Never in trouble, naturally I was scared, anxious and confused. I didn't know what to do. I scrambled through the search engine on the computer looking for representation and came across David's website. After glancing and reading through the material, I knew I had to call. Immediately, David answered the phone. What impressed me initially was his willingness to listen. After explaining my horrific ordeal, he calmly and honestly explained the process, possible outcome and what he could do. I had a sense David was a busy person, but it didn't stop him from driving to meet for a free consultation within a few days. Through this entire experience, never did David not answer a message or reply to an email. He made me feel as if I was his only client and took a stressful situation and made it his worry. My case was handled with the utmost care and sincerity. I put my complete trust in David and my case was ultimately dismissed and charges dropped. I can now move on with my life as if the situation had never happened. I recommend calling Mr. Owen if you are one of the unfortunate few facing a legal battle. Thank you David!
