Ensuring excellence in juvenile defense and justice for all children in Colorado.

CJDC believes all children and youth should experience adolescence free from over-criminalization in a just society that promotes their well-being and provides second chances. We Believe in Youth! CJDC is no longer representing clients in cases for juvenile expungement (record clearing) or deregistration as of October 1, 2017.
