What others have said about Hon. Carlos Armondo Samour, Jr.


Criminal Defense Lawyer

Comment #: CO103
He is a breath of fresh air in a county that is often difficult to practice in. He recently applied Batson in a trial finding a race neutral explanation incredible. You never see a Judge willing to do that.


Comment #: CO90
My wife and I have owned a local roofing company "Agape Construction & Roofing" with a Colorado "TM" Trademark for 19 years, another roofing company entered our market in 2009 after a major hail storm in July 2009, "Agape Roofing & Construction" refused to leave the State of Colorado,entered our market with "Agape Roofing" ads and Yellow page exposure, even when we served "Jesse Crow" owner of "Agape Roofing", Tulsa Oklahoma and informed him and his attorneys of our trademark, we had to file suit in Civil court> Judge Samour made my wife and pay for all our atty fees and all of his too!! This Judge did not read the 33 plus pages of evidence presented to him.

Judge Carlos Armando Samour Jr. cost my wife and I 10's of thousands of dollars in litigation fees and we own a "trademark" that is supposed to protect us and our business from this type of behaviour. He does not protect Colorado based businesses.

Please remove this Judge!!!!

Comment #: CO86
Seriously lacking in understanding of and ability to handle civil litigation; has minimal understanding of procedural rules and appicable precedent; no common sense; either relies too heavily on his clerk or rules after minimal study of briefing.
