Welcome to The Evans Firm

          We are a Colorado law firm located in the Denver Tech Center at the crossroads of I-25 and I-225. We have satellite offices in other metro area locations. The Evans Firm chooses to focus in three main areas of the law: 1) criminal defense representation; 2) homeowner's and condo owner's associations (HOA's) on behalf of both owners and as general counsel for the association; and 3) and wrongful death civil litigation.

          We are known by our clients and our opponents to be fearless advocates. We use a trial-centered approach, instead of a settlement-centered approach. This enables us to better work with opposing parties by accurately analyzing your case to find the right legal solution that fairly represents your best interests. While many cases do eventually settle, we have the expertise in the courtroom to get the job done if necessary and effectively convey your message to the jury. At The Evans Firm, we became lawyers to try cases...not to push paper. If you are going to hire a lawyer, shouldn't you hire one that is able to take your case from beginning to end and not force you to settle?

 
          We look forward to personally speaking with you and finding out how we can best reach your goals.

ATTORNEY MICHAEL D. EVANS

         For Michael Evans, being a lawyer is not just a career – it’s his heart-felt passion. Mr. Evans is admitted to practice law in both the Colorado State and Federal courts. He has conducted over fifty (50) criminal and civil jury trials. His practice areas include criminal defense, including medical marijuana defense, homeowner’s and condominium associations, and wrongful death. Mr. Evans’ education started at St. Therese grade school in Aurora, which was run by the Sisters of Charity. He participated in the school speech team, and swam year round with the USS club, MACS. He then attended Regis Jesuit High School, where swam as a member of the state and national champion Raider swim team, lettering all four years and making the dean’s list. He also worked part time all four years. He continued his Jesuit education in college at Xavier University in Cincinnati with a Division I swimming and academic scholarship. But after a year, and a twist of fate, Mr. Evans traded in his swim trunks for a pair of boxing gloves, and captained the Xavier NCBA boxing team the remaining three years.

 

           He was also a part of Xavier’s Army ROTC Ranger program, and worked full time all four years as both a swim coach for USS club and ABLY, as well as a local bartender. During the summers, Mr. Evans returned back to Colorado to intern for the Denver Public Defender’s office. After earning a bachelor's degree in English, Mr. Evans wanted to gain a business background before entering law school, and immediately enrolled in the master's degree program at Xavier. While earning his M.B.A., he continued to work full time at Taft, Stettinius, & Hollister and playing for Xavier’s water polo team. Mr. Evans, ready to pursue his dream of becoming an attorney, moved to Miami and attended his first year of law school at St. Thomas University. After the first year, he desired to return back to his home state of Colorado, and he spent the remaining two years at the University of Denver law school with a focus in evidence and trial practice. While in law school, he also began his own legal investigation company. He graduated from the University of Denver with a Juris Doctorate degree, and was admitted to practice law in both the Colorado State and Federal courts.

Mr. Evans received an amazing opportunity after graduating from law school to work at the Denver Public Defender’s Office, where he had previously interned. In almost three years, he conducted over thirty (30) criminal jury trials, as well as countless hearings and litigated many appeals. Mr. Evans has practiced in the county, juvenile, district drug courts, as well as in district felony cases. He has represented thousands of clients in the courtroom. He was trained by some of the best lawyers in the state, and has attended the National Institute for Trial Advocacy, NITA. He is an avid and tenacious litigator. In 2009, Mr. Evans joined the Denver law firm of Benson & Case, LLP. He practiced in the areas of criminal defense, civil litigation including personal injury, civil rights, homeowner’s associations, and medical marijuana law.

General Information about Colorado:

Colorado is a U.S. state that encompasses most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains. Colorado is part of the Western United States, the Mountain States, and the Southwestern United States. The state was named for the Colorado River, which early Spanish explorers named the Rio Colorado for the red colored (Spanish: Colorado) silt the river carried from the mountains. In 1861, Jefferson Territorial officials decided that "Colorado" would be a fitting name for a new territory. Colorado is nicknamed the "Centennial State" because it was admitted to the Union as the 38th state in 1876, the centennial year of the United States Declaration of Independence. Colorado is bordered by the northwest state of Wyoming to the north, the midwest states of Nebraska and Kansas to the northeast and east, on the south by New Mexico and a small portion of the southern state of Oklahoma, and on the west by Utah. The four states of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah meet at one common point known as the Four Corners, which is known as the heart of the American Southwest. Colorado is one of only three U.S. states with no natural borders, the others being neighboring Wyoming and Utah. Colorado is noted for its vivid landscape of mountains, high plains, mesas, canyons, plateaus, rivers, and desert lands.

The United States Census 2010 tallied the state population at 5,029,196 as of April 1, 2010, an increase of +16.92% since the United States Census 2000. Denver is the capital and the most populous city of Colorado. Residents of the state are properly known as "Coloradans", although the archaic term "Coloradoan" is still used. Colorado's most populous city, and capital, is Denver. The Denver-Aurora-Boulder Combined Statistical Area with an estimated 2009 population of 3,110,436, is home to 61.90% of the state's residents. As of 2005, Colorado has an estimated population of 4,665,177, which is an increase of 63,356, or 1.4%, from the prior year and an increase of 363,162, or 8.4%, since the year 2000. This includes a natural increase since the last census of 205,321 people (that is 353,091 births minus 147,770 deaths) and an increase due to net migration of 159,957 people into the state. Immigration from outside the United States resulted in a net increase of 112,217 people, and migration within the country produced a net increase of 47,740 people. The largest increases are expected in the Front Range Urban Corridor, especially in the Denver metropolitan area. The state's fastest-growing counties are Douglas and Weld.The center of population of Colorado is located just north of the village of Critchell in Jefferson County. Colorado has a high proportion of Hispanic, mostly Mexican-American, citizens in Metropolitan Denver, Colorado Springs, as well as the smaller cities of Greeley and Pueblo, and in many other smaller cities and towns all throughout the state. Colorado is well known for its strong Latino culture and presence. Southern, Southwestern, and Southeastern Colorado has a large number of Hispanos, the descendants of the early Mexican settlers of colonial Spanish origin. The 2000 U.S. Census found that 10.5% of people aged five and over in Colorado speak only Spanish at home, with the 2009 estimate being roughly 14%. Colorado also has a large immigration presence all throughout the state, which has led to Colorado cities being referred to as "Sanctuary Cities" for illegal immigrants as well. Colorado has the 5th highest percentage of undocumented people in the U.S., only behind Nevada, Arizona, California, and tied with Texas. An estimated 5.5-6.0% of the states population being illegal immigrants. Also, over 20% of the states prisons are undocumented inmates.

Colorado, like New Mexico, is very rich in archaic Spanish idioms. Colorado also has some African-American communities located in Denver, in the neighborhoods of Montbello, Green Valley Ranch, Park Hill, Five Points, Whittier, and many other East Denver areas. A decent amount of African Americans are also found in Colorado Springs on the east and southeast side of the city. The state has sizable numbers of Asian-Americans of Mongolian, Chinese, Filipino, Korean, Southeast Asian and Japanese descent. The highest population of Asian Americans can be found on the south and southeast side of Denver, as well as some on Denver's southwest side. The Denver metropolitan area is considered more liberal and diverse than much of the state when it comes to political issues and environmental concerns. According to the 2000 Census, the largest ancestry groups in Colorado are German (22%) including of Swiss and Austrian nationalities, Mexican (18%), Irish (12%), and English (12%). Persons reporting German ancestry are especially numerous in the Front Range, the Rockies (west-central counties) and Eastern parts/High Plains. Denver, as well as all of Colorado, have numerous amount of predominately Latino neighborhoods and communities. Also, Denver and nearby areas on the Front Range has sizable German, Scandinavian, Italian, Slavic and Jewish American communities, partly a legacy of gold rushes in the late 19th century (1861–1889). There were a total of 70,331 births in Colorado in 2006. (Birth Rate of 14.6). In 2007, non-Hispanic whites were involved in 59.1% of all the births. Some 14.06% of those births involved a non-Hispanic white person and someone of a different race, most often with a couple including one Hispanic. A birth where at least one Hispanic person was involved counted for 43% of the births in Colorado.[38] Colorado has the seventh highest percentage of Hispanics (20%) in the U.S. behind New Mexico (44%), California (36%), Texas (36%), Arizona (29%), Nevada (24%), and Florida (20%). Per the 2000 census, the Hispanic population is estimated to be 918,899 or approximately 20% of the state total population. Colorado has the 4th largest population of Mexican-Americans behind California, Texas, and Arizona. In percentages, Colorado has the 6th highest percentage of Mexican-Americans behind New Mexico, California, Texas, Arizona, and Nevada.
