Attorney Kirk Waible

Kirk has specialized in defending adults and children for 15 years. He has represented thousands of people throughout Colorado since graduating from the University of Denver School of Law in 2001. Kirk has litigated over sixty criminal trials. He has assisted citizens in Colorado District Court charged with homicide, the Colorado Organized Crime and Control Act, distribution and possession of controlled substances, kidnapping, aggravated robbery, sexual offenses, burglary and assault. Kirk also has significant experience in Colorado County Court representing men and women charged with domestic violence and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. He understands that any allegation against an individual can have serious immediate impacts on their freedom but also long term collateral consequences on their immigration status, their ability to work, to have contact their loved ones, preserve their second amendment rights, and drive a vehicle.

Kirk contracts with the State of Colorado Office of Alternate Defense Counsel. This agency provides representation to indigent people when there is a legal conflict with the Colorado State Public Defenders Office. Kirk is on the short list of attorneys in Northern Colorado who are qualified to accept court appointments on all levels of felony and misdemeanor charges. The State of Colorado Office of Alternate Defense Counsel is nationally recognized for it’s training programs. Kirk regularly attends these sessions to improve his negotiation and trial skills.

Juvenile law is another of Kirk’s areas of expertise. In addition to defending children, he is entrusted by the juvenile magistrates in Larimer and Weld County to act in the role of Guardian ad Litem. This is a special assignment in a juvenile case. A Guardian ad Litem investigates all the circumstances that resulted in a child being involved in the juvenile justice system. In this role, Kirk is in regular negotiations with caseworkers from the department of human services, mental health professionals, school administrators, probation officers and mentors. This experience gives Kirk insight into the complexities of the Colorado juvenile justice system to better assist his clients when he is retained as defense counsel.

Kirk lives with his family in Fort Collins. When he is not defending his clients, he enjoys snowboarding, fly fishing, whitewater rafting and wildlife photography.

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.
