About Us

April Murtha and AM Law, LLC are dedicated to working towards getting justice for you, whatever that looks like for your situation. We understand that what may feel like "justice" for one person is not the same for the next. April Murtha knows that sometimes negotiating the best outcome possible is all a client wants, while other times proceeding straight to trial is the only option.

April joined the great state of Colorado back in 1998 where she enrolled at Colorado State University. After graduation April worked at a couple of law offices in Colorado to determine if the legal field was a good fit and also to determine what areas of law were the right fit. Once she started working with a top firm on the Western Slope, April found her niche and the rest is history.

April graduated from Drake University Law School in 2011 with a specialization in Litigation (trial skills). After graduation she happily returned to Colorado as a Public Defender with the Colorado Public Defender's Office. While with the Public Defender's Office April spent 5 years in Jefferson County defending adults and juveniles charged with felony and misdemeanor offenses. She tried a large number of cases in front of juries and Judges, but also negotiated hundreds of others to fair resolutions. This allowed her to not only sharpen her trial advocacy skills, but also to forge positive, professional relationships with the other players in the criminal justice field. These relationships allow April to negotiate the best outcome for her clients. Eventually, April left the Public Defender's office and joined a private firm in downtown Denver and did a little bit of everything. After a couple of years she moved on and formed AM Law, LLC in order to combine the unmatched trial and negotiation skills of the Public Defenders with her desire to ensure top notch attention and representation to every one of her clients.

When April is not in the office she enjoys spending time with her family, exploring Colorado's many open spaces via horseback, reading a good book, giving back to her community. April is active in coaching youth soccer and is a proud Arvada Rotarian. All of the landscapes featured on this web page were taken by April.
