Damon is an exceptional trial lawyer who has practiced law in Colorado Springs since 1994. Since that time, he has specialized in criminal defense including DUI litigation, as well as liquor license cases, and regulatory disputes. In his current role with Waters, Kubik, and Cassens, he focuses on criminal defense and liquor license cases, primarily.
Damon’s education in biology and chemistry has given him in-depth knowledge about the scientific issues that often arise in court. This has been especially helpful to his clients charged with DUIs. As an educated advocate and certified field sobriety administrator, he has been able to use scientific evidence time and again to show that roadside sobriety tests or breathalyzers were compromised in some way. Thanks to this understanding of the science behind these tests, many of his clients have been acquitted, avoiding the serious consequences of a DUI.
Damon’s background has helped him to become the effective defense attorney he is today. Growing up on a farm in Iowa, he learned the value of hard work. He went on to excel in college, earning a B.S. in Biology from Cornell College in 1990. During law school at Creighton University, Damon interned for a U.S. District Court judge in Nebraska before graduating cum laude in 1994. Upon graduation, he began his legal practice in Colorado Springs where he established a successful firm. Today, along with partners Mike Waters and Dawn Kubik, Damon is one of the finest trial attorneys in southern Colorado.
When Damon isn’t in the courtroom, he can be found in the Colorado mountains, flying over them as a pilot for 30 years or in them, hunting, fly fishing, and enjoying the fresh air. He has two children and lives in Colorado Springs.
