Cayce made me feel confident about my case. Your the best, thank you so much for all you do and did.
Hillary C. Aizenman is an awesome attorney. She always returned my calls and emails quickly. Her wages were clear from the beginning and she is very honest and has integrity. She got good results for me!

Lisa Polansky is a terrific criminal defense attorney who brings great knowledge and experience to the job as a result of handling countless, difficult cases, both in California and in Colorado. As a Colorado lawyer, I know that Lisa is highly-respected in our federal courts for her tenacity, work ethic and intelligence.
Cayce Duncan entered private practice with the Polansky Law Firm in 2020 after practicing as a public defender for several years in both Denver and Colorado Springs. She is a skilled trial attorney who works diligently to obtain the best outcomes for her clients.
Cayce is a Louisiana native who came to Colorado in 2013 to attend law school at the University of Colorado at Boulder. While at CU, Cayce quickly gained courtroom experience as a practicing student lawyer in several Colorado counties. She also volunteered for outreach programs, working with high school students through the Marshall-Brennan Constitutional Literacy Project and LYRIC (“Learn Your Rights In Colorado”). In 2015, she was awarded the Dan Barash Memorial Scholarship in recognition of her dedicated work in indigent defense.
During her time as a public defender, Cayce tried dozens of cases to verdict, wrote and litigated complex legal motions, and negotiated dismissals and favorable plea deals for her clients in even the toughest of cases. Cayce has represented clients in nearly every type of criminal case, ranging from DUIs, to sex assaults, drug cases, homicides, and everything in between. She also argued before the Colorado Supreme Court in an appeal case she litigated from start to finish and ultimately won.
Cayce’s practice is focused on zealous advocacy both in and out of the courtroom. She has experience representing clients during all stages of the criminal process, including: pre-filing of charges; pre-trial negotiation and litigation; jury trials; post-conviction proceedings; probation revocations; and sealing of charges. She uses a client-centered approach to work towards the outcome that best addresses her clients’ specific needs.
