Greg GreerOf Counsel

For over thirty years, Greg Greer has helped thousands of Garfield County clients successfully make their way through the criminal justice system. Greg’s experience crosses the spectrum of criminal defense. He has represented clients with every level criminal charge, from DUIs to First Degree Murder. His tireless, aggressive commitment to his clients has helped them prevail against accusations such as homicide, kidnapping, sexual assault, assault, theft, burglary, domestic violence and fraud. 

Experience

In 1982, Greg became a Deputy State Public Defender in the Fort Collins Regional Public Defender’s office. In 1987, he was chosen to head the Glenwood Springs Regional Public Defender’s office, covering the entire Ninth Judicial District and Eagle County in the Fifth Judicial District. For twenty years, Greg established a regional presence handling and trying cases in these jurisdictions as well as cases in Grand Junction and Steamboat Springs.

In 2003, Greg discovered and pursued the prosecution’s failure to disclose the suspicious history of a police officer involved with months of prosecutions in the Ninth Judicial District. As a result, many people who had been arrested by this officer received some relief from those past prosecutions. His work was subject to an article in the Post Independent newspaper.

Awards

In 2006, Greg was awarded the Gideon award from the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar. The Gideon Award is presented to Colorado Lawyers for remarkable effort to fulfill the promise of Gideon v. Wainwright and dedication to advocacy on behalf of the poor. He has been selected to the prestigious Super Lawyers list for criminal defense by the Colorado Super Lawyers.
