Joe Maher stands ready to help good people in difficult times. Mr. Maher has been voted by his peers as one of the top attorneys in Colorado Springs for DUI defense; he knows exactly what you are up against. Standing up to criminal or DUI charges will be one of the most trying times you will face in life. You must have a team standing next to you prepared to fight with the skill and determination to win. Maher & Maher Law PC is that team.

Joe served as a prosecutor in El Paso County Colorado for five years prior to starting his own defense practice. In this role, Joe served as a front-line supervisor for Deputy DA’s prosecuting DUI cases. He also served on the DA’s Vehicular Homicide team. There is no replacement for a lawyer’s ability to analyze a case as both a prosecutor and a defense attorney. Joe has soundly developed these analytical capabilities having tried more than 60 jury trials to verdict as a deputy district attorney and private defense counsel. Not only is Joe an accomplished trial lawyer but he has worked intentionally to develop specific DUI defense capabilities that are rare within his field:

  • Joe has successfully completed the Standardized Field Sobriety Testing (SFST) and Detection course that DUI officers must complete.
  • Joe has successfully completed the SFST Instructor Development course that the most experienced DUI officers complete.
  • Joe has successfully completed the Advanced Roadside Impaired Driving Enforcement (ARIDE) course that advanced DUI officers must complete.
  • Joe has successfully completed the Axion Laboratories Forensic Chromatography course in Chicago, IL. Gas Chromatography is the testing method Colorado forensic laboratories use to test a driver’s blood specimens for blood alcohol content (BAC).
  • Joe was voted by his peers as one of Colorado Springs’ top DUI attorneys in Colorado Springs Magazine’s 2023 Top Attorney voting.

Prior to earning the title Attorney, Joe earned the title Marine Officer. Joe attained the rank of Captain, commanding two platoons and a company of Marines during three deployments to Iraq. He was awarded the Marine Corps Association’s Chambers award for leadership following his company command tour. Joe also served on the staff of U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel as a deputy legislative assistant for military and veteran’s issues.

Joe’s experiences as a trial attorney, military officer, legislative staff member, and combat veteran have forged an unapologetic and unwavering respect for the U.S. Constitution and an ardent belief that the rights enshrined within it must be defended at the level of the individual citizen.

Joe is thankful for his wife and sons. He and Kimberly are the proud parents of FOUR boys. Joe is an avid hockey player and youth hockey coach
