About Denver Criminal Defense Law

If you or your loved one is facing a criminal charge, it can be a nerve-wracking and intimidating time.  Given the complexity of criminal laws and the potentially severe consequences, an experienced Denver criminal lawyer is essential to navigating through this uncertain time.

Below we have provided some basic information about Denver criminal law, including when and how a Denver criminal defense attorney in can be most useful.

What Are Criminal Charges?

At its simplest, an individual is facing criminal charges when they have committed a crime.  A crime is any act committed or omitted that violates a public law.  The laws of Colorado will define these forbidden acts.  All crimes will generally fall into one of the following categories:

  • Felony: Felonies are the most severe level of crime, generally punishable by imprisonment for more than a year, in addition to any fines.  Examples of crimes that are considered felonies include murder, arson, and rape.
  • Misdemeanor: Misdemeanors are lesser crimes, generally resulting in prison sentences of less than a year and lesser fines.  Examples of misdemeanors include trespassing and vandalism.
  • Infraction: Infractions are minor or petty crimes that normally do not result in jail time.  Examples include speeding or running a red light.

While each of the above categories of crimes come with different punishments, each can have a significant impact on an individual’s life.

How a Denver Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help

If you are facing criminal charges, you should contact a Criminal Defense attorney in Denver as soon as possible.  Regardless of whether you have committed some wrongdoing or if you are completely innocent, a licensed legal practitioner will be an invaluable resource throughout the criminal process.

A criminal lawyer in Denver can assist in all facets of the criminal process, including:

  • Ensure Your Rights are Protected. You may have heard the recitation of Miranda rights in movies or TV shows – including the right to an attorney.  This is considered an essential right to those facing criminal charges because an attorney can ensure a charged individual receives all the rights they are due under the law.
  • Understand the Legal Process. Criminal attorneys know the ins and outs of the legal process for criminal cases.  They can assist you in any preliminary hearings, ensure your bail is set at a reasonable amount, and confirm that all legal procedures are being properly followed by the police and the prosecutor.
  • Create Defense Strategy. Lawyers who work in Denver criminal law have significant experience strategizing the most effective way to handle a case.  This often includes striking deals with the prosecution and securing lesser sentences.
  • Understand Case Precedent. One important tool in a successful criminal case is past case law.  If there are past cases where a similarly situated defendant overcame criminal charges, an attorney can use this to persuade a judge or jury that you should see the same result.

As you or your loved one determines next steps for handling criminal charges, an Denver Criminal Defense attorney will be an invaluable asset.  The criminal legal process can present unexpectedly complicated twists and turns, where a wrong step could result in serious limitations on your personal liberty.

Scott is one of a kind. I never expected to laugh when meeting with my divorce attorney, but it happened many times. Not only is he down to earth, professional and highly capable of making a stressful process seamless and effortless on your part, he is genuine and truly has your best interests in mind. Combine that with his expertise, thoroughness and ability to be firm when needed, and you have an exceptional attorney. He exceeded my expectations all the way across the board and I highly recommend him to anyone seeking counsel and/or representation.

I highly recommend Peek Goldstone. Scott was my attorney and I can't imagine having a better experience. He was always very open, and definitely looks out for his clients' best interests with empathy and honest input. I could always reach him and he always responded to my constant questions quickly and professionally. If I ever need a lawyer for anything else he will be the first person I call. Thanks so much Scott!
