Jeffrey R. Edelman fights for you

Jeffrey R. Edelman has been in private practice in Colorado since 1977, served three years as a legal aid/public defender in both Colorado and North Dakota and has extensive experience in criminal defense law, as well as divorce, alimony, adoption and other family law issues.

Born in the Bronx, N.Y., and raised on Long Island, he attended the University of Cincinnati, where he graduated with a B.B.A. in 1971. He went on to attend the New England School of Law, earning his J.D. in 1974. After graduation, he worked with Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA) and moved to Bismarck, N.D., where he spent a year volunteering at the United Tribes Employment Training Center (UTETC). After completing his work at UTETC, he moved to Denver and spent a year working as a legal aid lawyer. After gaining valuable experience in that job, he established a private practice in January 1977.

Since that time, his law firm, Jeffrey R. Edelman, P.C. has represented clients throughout North Dakota, Colorado and Wyoming in both the state and federal courts. His dedication to clients makes him their tenacious defender in criminal matters ranging from felonies such as white-collar crimes, violent crimes and drug-related offenses to misdemeanors such as domestic violence. For the past approximately 40 years, he has been on the U.S. Criminal Justice Act court appointment list for indigent clients charged with federal crimes in the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado. He is licensed before the Colorado Supreme Court, the United States District Court for Colorado, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, the United States Supreme Court and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court.

His credentials as a family law attorney are equally impressive. He has years of experience handling cases involving divorce, alimony, child custody, child support, adoption, paternity and domestic violence. He previously represented children as a guardian ad litem.

Jeff is married and has four children. Two of his four children were adopted internationally, and the other two are from a previous marriage, one of which is a student at the University of Colorado and the other is currently serving in the United States Army. As you can see, Jeff has lived through some of the same issues his clients are experiencing, giving him insight into the needs of his clients. He shows his clients the compassion they deserve.
