Lance P. Thibert knows that criminal cases do not occur in a vacuum and are often a snapshot of a person’s worst day. Often times the criminal legal process can feel judgmental, humiliating, and dehumanizing. Lance fiercely believes that the dignity of each person must be respected regardless of the accusation against them.

Lance spent 6 years working as a Senior Deputy Public Defender in Larimer County and in that time gained extensive litigation and trial experience working cases encompassing Driving under the Influence, Theft, Domestic Violence, firearm-related charges, Drug Possession/Distribution, Arson, Burglary, Assault, and Homicide. Lance has taken innumerable cases to trial and achieved a favorable outcome.

Lance’s experience is not limited to the trial courtroom. Lance has been responsible for submitting briefs to the Court of Appeals that went on to produce published opinions along with writing hundreds of legal motions in County and District Court dealing with complex legal issues.

Lance has also acted as a mentor and instructor to aspiring and newly minted lawyers. He has trained several attorneys who have gone on to become excellent trial attorneys. Lance has acted as the subject matter expert in the area of DUI Litigation and has taught many training sessions on nearly every aspect of DUI litigation. Lance also worked as one of the Public Defender representatives in the DUI Recovery Court in Larimer County. Lance has also filled the same role in a substitute capacity for similar treatment courts including Drug Court, Wellness (Mental Health) Court, and Juvenile Drug Court.
