  • 5 star rating  Professional and knowledgeable attorney!  I received an out of state speeding ticket leading to a misdemeanor charge. Attorney Lucero represented me in court and kept me informed during the process. He was honest and his one time fee was reasonable,  compared to other attorneys I spoke to. My misdemeanor was dropped to a traffic infraction. Happy with results,  and sure learned my lesson.

  • 5 star rating  I had an excellent experience with Ike Lucero. He handled a speeding ticket that I received while visiting Colorado, and negotiated a very favorable plea bargain for me. I couldn't be happier with the results.

    Throughout the whole process, Ike was responsive and willing to answer all of my questions regarding my options and the steps I needed to take. I would recommend him to anyone and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

  • 5 star rating  I have never received a ticket until I moved to Denver. I got caught in one of Denver's speed traps. It was a Sunday afternoon when I got caught and emailed Ike Lucero. For my surprise he emailed me back within an hour.  He was very professional and knowledgable. I hope I don't need to use him ever again but if I have to I wouldn't hesitate to contact him.
