Law Week Colorado, the official legal publication pursuant to State statute, named Denver DUI lawyer Jay Tiftickjian “Best DUI Lawyer” for the second year in a row in its 2013 Best of the Best issue to be released September 2. Published by Circuit Media, Law Week Colorado is Colorado’s only newspaper published specifically for lawyers, law firms, corporate counsel and the judiciary. The Barrister’s Best award is based on the editor’s determination of who was the “best of the best” for the year based on performance in court and case results.
This has been a big year for Tiftickjian and Tiftickjian Law Firm. Aside from the many happy clients that have put their trust in the DUI defense law firm, Tiftickjian released two major publications through national publishers: Facing A DUI Charge in Colorado and Colorado DUI Defense: The Law and Practice. He also published two chapters in national books regarding forensic science and drunk driving defense. Tiftickjian was one of the leaders of the charge against the Colorado Department of Health’s forensic blood-testing lab, which eventually was shut down by Governor Hickenlooper in June. He spoke to the media on the steps of the State’s appellate courthouse regarding problems in the lab and later gave analysis to the New York Times regarding the issue. In addition, he was voted by the members to the board of directors of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar in May.
“I am again honored to receive this award,” said Tiftickjian of the acknowledgement. If it weren’t for the wonderful attorneys and staff in the firm, this wouldn’t be possible. It is indicative of the efforts that each of our members put forth on a daily basis.”
