Why You Need a Boulder Trial Lawyer at Your Side

The legal system is not designed or built for non-lawyers. Choosing to represent yourself is risky, and can often be much more expensive than retaining a lawyer. In criminal cases, it is impossible for a non-lawyer to evaluate legal and factual issues, to negotiate with prosecutors in a meaningful way, or to prepare for hearings and trials. Proceeding without a lawyer in a criminal case usually results in a substantially worse outcome than a lawyer could achieve. In civil matters, it is impossible for a non-lawyer to accurately assess damages, craft legal arguments, and determine an effective strategy. Proceeding without a lawyer in a civil matter can result in significant monetary loss. In any contested legal matter, counsel and support from a lawyer is essential to the clear understanding that you need in order to make the choices that are right for you.

Practice Areas

Our firm has the skills and experience needed to help you in a wide variety of cases and specialize in the following practice areas.

Criminal Defense

If you are charged with a crime, it is important to work with an excellent Boulder criminal defense attorney. Criminal matters don’t just carry potential incarceration and fines. They can also impact your professional license, your job, your ability to remain in the United States if you are not a citizen, your ability to see your child, and other basic parts of your life. Our attorneys can guide you through the court process, help you understand your options, and counsel you as you make empowered choices that make sense for you. We work in all Colorado jurisdictions to defend people charged with municipal offenses, petty offenses, misdemeanors, and felonies, including:

  • Robbery
  • Child Abuse / Child Endangerment
  • Drug Possession
  • Traffic Violations
  • Fraud or Forgery Charges
  • Gun and Weapon Charges
  • Murder and Attempted Murder

Understanding Criminal Charges in Colorado

If you are unsure of the charges against you or why you are under investigation, we can help you understand. Colorado criminal charges fall into these categories:

Felony: Felonies are the most severe crimes, including serious assaults, serious sex offenses, certain drug offenses, and other offenses in which people are alleged to have caused significant injuries or monetary loss through criminal.

Misdemeanor: Misdemeanors are less serious criminal offenses, including most DUIs, less serious domestic violence cases, and less serious drug offenses.

Petty and Municipal Offenses: Petty and municipal offenses are the least serious violations of Colorado state laws and of municipal ordinances. This category of offenses includes most Minor in Possession charges, noise violations, and similar offenses.

If you are the subject of police investigation, if you have been arrested, or if you are currently facing criminal charges, you should speak to an attorney immediately.

Thank you, Jen! Being wrongfully accused of felonies was so stressful. You made the district attorney see these cases for what they were and dismiss them. Now that both cases are sealed, I feel like I can continue pursuing my dreams! MP
With all of the gratitude in the world I want to thank you. You made the most impossible of situations tolerable. Please know how much you have done for my family and how much we appreciate you. RW
Thanks so much for your endurance and perseverance. [Your fee] is such a small amount compared to what we think you’re worth. DL + KL
