Tom is your Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Attorney.

Have you been charged with a crime, or arrested in Colorado Springs? My name is Attorney Thomas Barnes, and after retiring as a District Attorney, I have been working as a criminal lawyer for decades. I am well-qualified to handle your case.

  • I have more than 40 years of experience handling complex criminal defense cases at the city, county, and state level.
  • I spent many years of my career as a Deputy District Attorney for the Fourth Judicial District in El Paso County. I am equipped to present cases in court.
  • After more than thirty years in private practice, I was even tapped to serve as a Temporary Juvenile Magistrate in El Paso County.
  • I have successfully represented hundreds of individuals in Colorado Springs during my career.

I have not shied away from the demands of public service. When asked, I always return to what I love best;  Fighting for individual clients as they battle their way through the legal system–upholding their rights and ensuring that all their rightful issues are painstakingly reviewed and rigorously presented.
