Senior Trial Attorney
Christopher Estoll has a unique ability to focus on the one aspect of a case that will be determinative of the outcome. His years of experience allow him to identify that pivotal issue and advocate for the right outcome based on that specific fact. He resolves most cases with a dismissal or a favorable plea offer that is too good to refuse. When he has to proceed to trial, he is successful as helping juries see that the government is overreaching and achieving acquittals.
In the last two years, Mr. Estoll has successfully defended charges of first degree murder, attempted second degree murder, sexual assault on a child, felony theft, menacing, fraud, child abuse and many cases of alleged domestic violence.
He practices primarily in Boulder, Broomfield, Adams and Jefferson counties. However, with the advent of virtual appearance and video court, he is more easily able to accept cases throughout the state and has recently represented clients in Arapahoe, Park, Larimer and Weld counties.
