Louisa Schlieben is a client-centered advocate specializing in family law and criminal defense.
Louisa gained excellent trial experience as an attorney with the Office of the Colorado State Public Defenders, where she received exceptional training and tried a dozen cases to juries in her first year. Prior to moving to Colorado, she worked with the Public Defender Agency in Fairbanks, Alaska, and with the Legal Aid Society in New York City. She has represented several hundred clients facing a broad range of family, criminal and civil law issues.
Louisa's approach to the legal system is grounded in the time she spent with the Innocence Project in New York City. While under the direction of legendary litigators Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, she observed the underlying causes of wrongful convictions, fought to exonerate innocent people convicted of horrible crimes, and came to appreciate the tremendous honor and responsibility of being an attorney.
Louisa understands the stress and anxiety that accompanies any encounter with the legal system. She knows that you are concerned with your immediate circumstances, as well as the long-term consequences of what you are facing. This understanding is the foundation of every interaction she has with her clients and with the courts or opposing parties on their behalf.
When you or your family are in crisis, you need an attorney you can trust. Louisa will always be honest with you and will fight hard for your interests.
