“All attorneys can handle state or federal crimes if they’re licensed in both state and federal court. Not all attorneys are licensed in both. In order to practice in the state of Colorado, you’re going to have to be licensed in the state of Colorado. So, meaning the state of Colorado has to issue you a license but you’ll have to also obtain a separate license in order to practice in federal court, in federal district court, and if you have an appeal, an attorney in the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals, which is here in Denver, would have to have a separate license just to practice in that court. Similarly, in order to practice in the United States Supreme Court, an attorney would have to have a specific license to practice in that court. And I’m licensed to practice in all of those.”
