Patrick McKinstry, Founder of the McKinstry Law Firm, is an experienced, respected and effective criminal defense lawyer. If you are facing felony, misdemeanor, or DUI charges in one of Colorado’s state courts, it is essential that you consult with an aggressive and seasoned criminal defense attorney, one with the experience, reputation, and training necessary to defend your rights and your freedom.

Mr. McKinstry spent years as a prosecutor before launching his criminal defense practice. He operates with one goal in mind: to help good people in bad situations.

Mr. McKinstry’s mission is to ensure that your rights are protected. The first line of defense, often deployed by Colorado’s best criminal defense attorneys, is the filing of motions to suppress evidence. If the police or prosecuting attorney violated your rights in any way while collecting evidence, Mr. McKinstry will fight to suppress that evidence and, when successful, this can lead to dismissal of the criminal charges. Prosecutors for the government must follow the rules, no matter what the charge. 

Mr. McKinstry is a graduate of the National Institute for Trial Advocacy’s National Session, an intensive two-week trial training program, as well as the Colorado Bar Association’s Leadership Training program.

Mr. McKinstry, a former Marine Captain, is a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Rated Attorney. His peers have ranked him at the highest level of professional excellence for legal knowledge, communication skills, and ethical standards
