Attorney Jill Sage

Jill was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. As a native of Colorado, she received her undergraduate degrees from the University of Colorado and law degree from the University of Denver in 2014. Jill is also fluent in Spanish; she has a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and studied in Spain. As soon as she completed the bar exam, Jill moved to Greeley to work as a public defender in Weld County. After three years as a public defender representing the indigent, she decided to join the Law Firm of Schwartz, Waible, and Esser, LLC.

As a public defender, Jill was driven by compassion and the desire to be a zealous advocate for the less fortunate in what is often the scariest and most desperate of times for our clients. She quickly gained experience litigating all criminal cases, both misdemeanor and felony, from domestic violence to DUI to property crimes to sex assaults. She has defended her clients in over two dozen jury trials.

The main focus of Jill’s practice at the Law Firm of Schwartz, Waible and Esser, LLC is working with juveniles. As Guardian Ad Litem (GAL) in juvenile delinquency cases, she represents the best interests of children who accused of crimes as they navigate the criminal justice system. As GAL in dependency and neglect cases, she represents the best interests of children whom the county is concerned may be abused or neglected. In both arenas, Jill feels extremely proud and privileged to give a voice to these children by providing competent, effective representation and advocacy on behalf of those involved in Colorado’s court system.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.

I retained Jeff Schwartz of Schwartz & Waible after I was charged with a felony. Jeff was caring, professional, detail-oriented, and thorough in how he handled my case. He has a strong knowledge of criminal law and knows the Larimer County court system and its players well. He was able to negotiate the best possible plea deal for me, and I am grateful for his representation. I highly recommend Schwartz & Waible’s services.
