About Us


For 30 years, I have been practicing law and excel at both criminal defense and litigation. My main office is located in Durango, CO and serves the entire Durango and surrounding areas with exceptional skill and professionalism. Among both my peers and my clients, I have excellent ratings in experience and professional conduct and numerous peer endorsements for my abilities in every area of my practice.

Beginning my career in El Paso, TX with special focus on domestic violence, criminal defense, misdemeanors and felonies, I am a strong ally when you need defense in any situation. With 14 years in Southwest Colorado, my working relationships with my peers and the judicial community have given me a highly regarded reputation as a criminal defense attorney.

I have received media coverage throughout Southwest Colorado for winning some of the most difficult cases placed before me, whether misdemeanor or felony. I have a reputation for standing steadfast by my clients to ensure every fair chance is given to them and this accounts for my long history of successes in my cases.

I also deftly handle cases ranging from misdemeanors to felonies, traffic offenses, DUI charges, drug offenses and domestic violence. When you need representation that will stand by you and fight for what’s right, call Joel Fry, Attorney at Law for a consultation and you’ll know you have a winner on your side.
