When facing Denver criminal charges, you may be a bit fearful, insecure and not sure who you can trust–all for good reason. Nobody wants to spend time in jail or be treated differently because they’ve been accused of making a mistake.
When you choose a Denver criminal defense attorney, it’s important to understand what to look for. Contrary to popular demand, attorneys are NOT all the same. When you need a specialized medical procedure for something life-threatening, would you trust a doctor fresh out of medical school? Would you place your life in his/her hands to bring you through a complex surgery?
If you’re smart you answered with an emphatic “NO.” The same holds true when hiring a Denver criminal defense attorney. Sure, you may say…”ah, it’s only a DUI…no big deal…everyone gets one.” Mishandled, you could find yourself paying exorbitant fines and possibly doing time behind bars (even for your first offense).
A Denver Criminal Attorney that Picks His Battles
Unlike many other criminal defense attorneys, I choose who I work with. If you’re in need of a payment plan, and your case isn’t important to you, call a “discount” attorney who works for free. You see, after handling well over 3,000 clients in my professional career I don’t have to chase clients any more. Do I still need clients? Of course! However, my history and reputation has allowed me to pick and choose who I represent. I don’t say this to be “cocky” or “brash”, but I’m very good at what I do, and I’m not the cheapest game in town. However, if defending your legal rights is important to you and you understand that you get what you pay for…then request a consultation now and let’s discuss your case.
Sealing of Criminal Records & Expungement of Criminal Convictions
The following are types of records that can be sealed in the state of Colorado.
- Adult Criminal Justice records: Records pertaining to adult (over 18 years of age or not brought before a juvenile court) arrests, investigations, criminal court cases are adult criminal justice records. Many restrictions apply to having such records sealed.
- Underage Drinking and Driving Conviction: A conviction for underage drinking and driving with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of greater than .02 but no more than .05 is a “UDD” conviction. State law allows sealing of such convictions but only under certain conditions.
- Juvenile records: adjudication records of juvenile courts can also be sealed or expunged. Such records are those pertaining to incidents that occurred before the person in interest reached the age of 18 and no charges were brought in an adult criminal court. Please call for more information.
