Criminal Defense FAQ | Boulder, Colorado

If you have been charged with a crime, it’s likely that you have a lot of questions. At Dolan + Zimmerman LLP, in Boulder, our attorneys understand the fear that can accompany the unknown. The following is a list of some of the more common criminal defense questions our clients ask us. We hope this page provides you with some of the answers you are looking for.

How Will A DUI Charge Affect My Driver’s License?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. A DUI case can lead to a variety of different consequences for your driver’s license. The extent and nature of these consequences will vary based on factors, including your age, your driving history, and the specific facts of your case. We can help you navigate this complex area.

How Will A Drug Conviction Impact My Student Loans?

A drug conviction can make you ineligible for federal student loans. If you are currently receiving financial aid, you may lose it due to a drug crime conviction. It is possible to regain eligibility after losing eligibility for federal student loans through two clean drug tests, completion of a rehabilitation program or waiting until the following school year.

How Can I Challenge A DUI Charge?

There are almost as many answers to this question as there are DUI cases. Each case presents a unique factual scenario with different combinations of factual, technical, statutory and constitutional defenses.

What Should I Do If I Get Pulled Over?

If you get pulled over, it is important to remain calm and cooperative and to refrain from making any statements to the police.

Do Police Have To Arrest Someone During A Domestic Violence Situation?

In domestic violence situations, Colorado police do have to make an arrest if there is probable cause that a domestic violence-related offense occurred. An arrest does not always lead to a conviction.

When Do Police Have To Read You Your Rights?

Police are required to read you your Miranda rights only when you are both in police custody and under interrogation. Outside of these circumstances, police do not have to read your rights.

When Do You Need A Lawyer?

You can never seek legal advice too soon, but you can seek advice too late. As soon as you know you have a problem — whether you are arrested or involved in a car accident — it is a good idea to talk to a lawyer. The sooner you get help, the sooner your lawyer can start building your defense.
