Colorado Criminal Defense Bar


Colorado Criminal Defense Bar

The Colorado Criminal Defense Bar (founded May 8, 1979) is a professional association of attorneys, investigators, and paralegals who represent persons accused of crime. The CCDB (as it is abbreviated) was created and established by attorneys Michael F. DiManna, Harold A. Haddon, Gary M. Jackson, Bryan Morgan, and the Honorable Peter H. Ney, a Judge of the Colorado Court of Appeals — all of Denver, Colorado — and William Gray of Boulder, Colorado (CCDB website). The "President's Council" comprises "former presidents of the CCDB and is chaired by the current President of the CCDB" ("President's Council", CCDB website).
