Luke McConnell

Luke McConnell joins The Reisch Law Firm, LLC as OF counsel and works on personal injury related matters for The Reisch Law Firm, LLC. 

Luke McConnell began his legal career with the Colorado State Public Defender, where he worked for five and a half years in one of the busiest metro offices. While working for the public defender, Luke was exposed to an extreme variety of people, cases, and situations. It is this experience that provides the foundation for Luke’s current representation of clients. Luke went into private practice in early 2014 so that he could expand his practice and help clients in more ways than he was able to at the public defender. Luke has a deep-seated passion for pushing back against powerful entities and institutions, fighting for what is right, and fighting for his clients’ rights and interests.

Luke’s focus is on providing honest, compassionate, and comprehensive advocacy on behalf of clients. No two situations are entirely the same, and Luke approaches each case with the goal of formulating a comprehensive strategy that meets the client’s unique needs. With 89 jury trials under his belt, few people are as qualified as Luke when a case goes to trial, and Luke possesses a passion for the art of the jury trial. Luke has had the privilege of sharing his passion for jury trials by teaching students at CU Boulder and to his newly admitted colleagues.

The current focus of Luke’s practice is in the areas of criminal defense, personal injury litigation, and civil rights litigation.

Luke has been recognized by the National Trial Lawyers Association as one of the best 40 lawyers under 40 years of age in Colorado for criminal defense based upon his trial experience.

Outside of work, Luke pursues many interests. These include biking, running, hiking, skiing, climbing, cooking, reading, music, and spending time with friends.
