No two criminal charges are exactly alike; as such, there is no universal approach that defendants can utilize. Criminal law is an extremely nuanced subject that requires the skills, knowledge and expertise of a professional in order to minimize the potential impact on a defendant’s life. At our firm, we take that responsibility seriously.
Depending on the charge, Colorado defendants can face any number of consequences, including revocation of driving privileges and even jail time. Convictions for some charges can even lead to parents losing access to their children. For others, the careers that they have spent years and countless hours cultivating can be brought to an immediate halt.
First and foremost, defendants’ rights to the presumption of innocence under the law must be upheld during the entirety of the criminal process. By working from to safeguard the presumption of innocence, we can work alongside defendants in order to determine how to best approach the charges. Carefully examining each and every charge is an essential aspect of this process, and it can help defendants emotionally prepare for the possibility of going to court.
Unfortunately, many defendants in Colorado believe that plea deals offered by prosecutors are their best hope for their charges. This typically stems from a fear of going to court, where the possibilities for their futures tend to feel out of their hands. With the right support, heading into criminal law court can be more than just a good decision; it can ultimately be the best decision, and our lawyers have what it takes to make a stand in the courtroom.
