Welcome... 2019-2020 Board President, Alaurice Tafoya-Modi

Since its founding in 1979, the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar is dedicated to protecting the rights of criminal defendants. We believe that a strong, unified and well-trained defense bar provides the best protection against error, injustice and government’s abuse of power in our criminal justice system.  Our organization is unequivocally opposed to the death penalty and our mission is to ensure our members are providing the best and most zealous representation for the criminally accused.    Not only does CCDB provide the best education, resources and training for Colorado’s criminal defense practitioners, we stand as a leader in advancing both legislative and policy reform to Colorado’s current criminal justice system.
