HEIDI TRIPP is an associate at The Noble Law Firm and advocates for clients on appeal and in postconviction proceedings.

Heidi writes persuasive briefs, petitions, and motions for clients on appeal and in postconviction proceedings in Colorado’s appellate and trial courts. Her unique skills allow her to advocate for clients by first and foremost getting to know them and their case so she can approach their legal issue with mitigation in mind.  She has used these mitigation skills to help clients prepare clemency applications, progress through the parole process, request a referral for special needs parole, and resolve complications arising from warrants and extradition.

In her postconviction practice, Heidi has experience working on cases involving claims regarding mental health, neurological conditions, and police-involved shootings.  She is knowledgeable about excessive sentencing and disproportionality of sentencing and has fought for a proportionate sentence for clients across the state of Colorado. 

Heidi represents clients convicted of all crimes, including felony murder and first-degree murder. She believes that every client deserves quality representation during appellate and postconviction proceedings. She handles cases involving even the toughest of facts, including sex offenses, violent crimes, and drug convictions, and has advocated for clients sentenced under the Lifetime Supervision Act.

Heidi believes in communicating with her clients so that they understand not only what happens procedurally during criminal proceedings, but also the ins and outs of the work she is doing for them before their case reaches the courtroom.  A client’s understanding of the criminal justice system and how it impacts them personally is of the utmost importance to Heidi and her practice.

On behalf of her clients, Heidi has recently:

  • Persuaded a district court to affirm a county court’s suppression of evidence and dismissal of all charges against her client.
  • Persuaded a district court to remove her client from the sex offender registry.
  • Assisted a client in successfully applying for and coordinating an interstate compact transfer. 
  • Worked with court personnel to resolve a client’s incorrect court fees.
  • Successfully argued that a decade-old plea deal was unconstitutional and negotiated a new plea that would avoid immigration consequences for her client.

Heidi received her law degree from Penn State Law where she actively sought opportunities to better understand criminal convictions and the collateral consequences resulting from them.  While in law school, Heidi participated in the Civil Rights Appellate Clinic, was a published member of the Penn State Law Review, interned in the Appellate Division of the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, and externed as a student clerk in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.
