Criminal and personal injury cases are complex, and those who have found themselves either facing charges or dealing with injuries from an accident need a representative who will take the time to hear their stories and advocate for them inside and outside of court. Both Attorney Kang and Attorney Buckmelter can do just that. Time and again, each attorney and their respective teams have helped individuals receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and more.

Over many years, both Vince and JY  have helped their clients hear "not guilty" verdicts from juries or have criminal charges dismissed, dropped, or reduced prior to trial. Whether you are in Denver, Vail, Boulder, Aurora, Commerce City, Westminster, Arvada, Lakewood, or Golden, you can trust them.
