Jimmy Litle is the COO and Managing Attorney of Right Law Group. As a Colorado native, Jimmy attended high school in Lakewood where he graduated as the valedictorian and earned all-league and all-state honors in baseball and football. After high school, Jimmy attended the University of Colorado at Boulder where he received his bachelor’s degree in communication with a minor in business administration. While at CU, Jimmy received a number of academic accolades including Dean’s List recognition and membership in several honor societies. Jimmy was also a member of Alpha Gamma Omega Christian Fraternity and served three terms as an executive officer, including two terms as president. After graduation, Jimmy spent time working in sales and customer service for Grainger, Inc., a Fortune 500 company.
After deciding to pursue a career in the law, Jimmy moved to Malibu, California to attend Pepperdine University’s School of Law. While at Pepperdine Law, Jimmy found a passion for criminal law and trial work which became the focus of his academics as he completed every class in criminal law and trial advocacy that Pepperdine Law offered. To build upon his academic knowledge, Jimmy accepted an internship at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office where he spent time in the office’s Family Violence, Preliminary Hearing, and Civil Asset Forfeiture units. Jimmy graduated from Pepperdine Law with his Juris Doctorate and a certificate in Alternative Dispute Resolution from the top-ranked Strauss Institute for ADR.
After graduation, Jimmy returned home to Colorado to start his professional career which began at one of the largest personal injury firms in Colorado. While practicing personal injury law, Jimmy fought against insurance companies as he sought full and fair compensation on behalf of hundreds of injured clients. While personal injury law provided significant career satisfaction, Jimmy began to miss the world of criminal law, so he accepted a position as a prosecutor in one of the largest district attorney offices in Colorado.
As a D.A., Jimmy gained invaluable trial experience and training in all areas of criminal law, and he prosecuted thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases including Assault, Harassment, DUI, Hit and Run, Domestic Violence, Aggravated Assault, Burglary, Auto-Theft, Vehicular Assault, Robbery, Adult and Child Sexual Assault, and Homicide. Jimmy was also assigned to the office’s Vehicular Assault and Homicide Teams, and he was the Lead Prosecutor for the Vehicular Homicide Unit. Additionally, Jimmy worked as the office’s liaison to various community and law enforcement groups including CSPD’s Major Crash Unit, K9 Unit, and Downtown Area Response Team.
After leaving the D.A.’s office, Jimmy joined the Right Law Group as a Managing Attorney and Chief Operating Officer. As a member of the Right Law team, he handles all types of criminal defense cases including traffic cases, domestic violence, DUIs, and felonies. Jimmy’s philosophy as a defense attorney is to utilize his years of criminal law experience to protect the rights of our clients and to counsel them while he works toward the favorable resolution of their cases.
In his free time, Jimmy enjoys spending time in the mountains with his fiancée and their two dogs and cheering for his beloved Colorado Buffaloes.
