Making a Difference
In the Lives of Those in Denver & Beyond

Tom Blumenthal

Attorney at Law

Tom's career path was decided when he was in 4th grade and came across Attorney for the Damned by Clarence Darrow in the featured section of the Chicago Public Library. Being exposed to the troubling rates and methods of incarceration inspired him to make a difference by becoming a criminal defense attorney.

After graduating from the University of Denver Law School in 1984 he became a law clerk in the United States District Court for United States District Judge, John L. Kane.

"I'm truly passionate about helping others overcome their legal difficulties. If you've been injured or accused of a crime—I'm here for you."

From there he went on to serve as a deputy district attorney prosecuting felonies in and for the District Attorney of the 16th Judicial District of the State of Colorado. This break in his path of defense was a strategic move to gain insight that would ultimately make him a more effective defender.

He began his private practice four three years later in 1987 and for the last 30 years, Thomas has dedicated his career towards minimizing the punishments inflicted on his clients by the legal system.
