Kent R. P. Gray, Lawyer

Why does Kent prefer to be called a “Lawyer” versus “An Attorney”? A very famous Colorado Lawyer, Rollie Rogers, once asked the question, “Are you a lawyer or an attorney?” When asked for the difference, he stated a lawyer is someone who works for the people and an attorney is someone who works for big business interests. Kent has been a Lawyer for over 32 years.
Kent is someone who works for “the people” who happen to be his clients and are accused of criminal or traffic charges. Kent was a Colorado State Public Defender for 15 years before going into private practice. He began his career in 1981 as a law student in the Boulder Public Defender office and after graduating, began in the Colorado Springs Office. He later was also the head of the La Junta regional Public Defender's office before returning to Colorado Springs. He has been in private practice exclusively doing criminal defense as a lawyer since 1997.
