About our office

Hard work and honesty. A simple concept that has mostly fallen by the wayside, it is refreshing to find out it still exists. In Fort Collins, attorney Eric A. Sunness has been working hard for his clients since 1993, focusing his efforts on the practice areas of DUI/DWAI, criminal defense and family law.

Small Firm, Big Results

The size of a firm or the number of lawyers on the payroll has nothing to do with the quality of legal outcomes, but a large firm often comes at a high price. Eric A. Sunness, Attorney at Law, LLC, is able to deliver big results for an affordable price while focusing on providing each client with the personal attention he or she deserves. Supported by an experienced, professional staff, attorney Eric A. Sunness has the skills, knowledge and resources to protect the rights of his clients.

Mr. Sunness personally handles every case. In no event will your case be passed off to an associate attorney. In all criminal cases, Mr. Sunness analyzes the evidence for constitutional violations or different issues. In the event that any are discovered, he meets with the district attorney to advocate for an appropriate resolution, including dismissal of all charges. He will consult with the prosecutor's office for a reduced charge and negotiate a fair outcome for his client. Despite the fact that the majority of our cases are settled without the need of a trial, Eric Sunness is a confident and proficient trial attorney, and readily takes cases before a judge or jury when important to vindicate his clients' rights.

A youth ice hockey coach since 1986, Mr. Sunness has served as president of the Fort Collins Youth Lacrosse program and as vice president of Northern Colorado Youth Hockey.

      My son was dared by some friends to shoplift and was caught by the store. In addition to the misdemeanor he faced he could have also potentially been barred from taking state examinations for advanced degrees as an adult. Eric counseled my son and was able to help him see the seriousness of his actions. He helped my son enter a reform program for young adults that completely expunged his record after a probationary period. I have the highest regards for Eric as an attorney and an individual.
