Colorado Springs attorney to be disbarred

Local

COLORADO SPRINGS — The Colorado Springs attorney who once represented the Oklahoma City bomber has been disbarred.

Dennis Hartley will be officially disbarred Thursday.

While he represented several clients, Hartley is accused of having shared legal fees with a non-attorney, failing to pursue client’s interests, neglecting to save client’s retainers, and disobeying a suspension.

He also had two DUIs and is accused of failing to report them to authorities. He was also convicted of a third alcohol-related driving offense.

Hartley is not appealing the disbarment.

In 2018, only 10 lawyers were disbarred in Colorado.
