Warning – Avoid Colorado Criminal Defense Law Firms Structured – Designed For Profit – Not Client Success
Lawyers who structure their practice by advertising their experience and success but then perform little to no actual work on the cases they “sign” should be avoided. Ask if the lawyer you retain is the lawyer who will be with you from the start to the finish. Cases that are handed to another attorney – or worse – a staff member resulting not only in poor quality control but in poor quality results but high quality profits for the lawyer at the top of the letterhead.

Finding The Best Colorado Domestic Violence Criminal Defense Lawyer – Never Give Up Hope – Persevere
The arrest for a Colorado criminal charge – any charge – is a shock. Never make the mistake of giving up hope of being able to beat the charges or settling the case in a way that preserves your future goals.
Enough evidence to make an arrest does NOT mean sufficient evidence to prove the case at trial.
If you think that because you committed the crime – there is no way of avoiding a conviction in the case – you don’t understand the presumption of innocence and the burden of proof of beyond a reasonable doubt.
The job of your advocate – your Colorado criminal defense lawyer – is to raise reasonable doubts – these are questions about the strength of the case in the minds of the district attorney and – if necessary – the jury – if the case proceeds to trial. These doubts go to the heart of the case – that is – whether the DA can actually prove his/her case – or in the case of the jury – whether there is enough evidence marshaled by the prosecutor to support a finding of guilty.
Even if a case is provable against you – that is – the evidence is there – the final result is almost always better if you retain excellent defense counsel and fight the charges always seeking the best possible result in your case. A seasoned and talented criminal defense lawyer can seek to negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable plea bargain.
Do not fear exercising the powerful rights given you by the Constitution against the State of Colorado, however remember that these rights are only powerful if you know how to use them.
The Value Of The Small – Focused – Criminal Domestic Violence Defense Specialist Practice
The Sole Practitioner who specializes and practices ONLY Colorado criminal law…
While no two lawyers are the same, the potential benefits of hiring a sole practitioner who specialize in one area are:
• A direct “one-on-one working relationship with your lawyer.”
• Typically lower fees and costs. This may not always be the case, but sole practitioners usually have much lower overhead than larger law firms. This allows them to give you more your legal fees.
• An informal and closer working relationship with the lawyer and his small staff.
• More time for the lawyer to “stay up” with changes in his or her field of law. Since criminal law specialists do not have “to be all things to all people,” and can focus on one field of law – they can – and this firm does – stay on top of changes in the field of criminal law that can benefit their clients. A lawyer who practices in many fields of law is an expert in none.
The Decision Not To Retain ANY Law Firm – “Going Pro Se – Means Going It Alone”
Colorado – like every state on the union, does not require you to retain a lawyer when you are charged with a crime. There is nothing to prevent you from going to court “pro se” and negotiating with the State of Colorado’s prosecutor all by yourself.
Unless your case is just a speeding ticket – or a very minor offense you must ask “how will you know what to do?” Do you feel confident that you can present a convincing defense on your behalf?
Consider this – as a former career prosecutor of 13 years – H. Michael usually knows exactly what the DA is thinking. DA’s are almost always of one mind – trust me… The DA is so biased in favor of the work of law enforcement – he or she already “knows” that you are guilty of the criminal offense for which you have been charged, …why else would the police have ticketed you – or – in felony cases – why would his or her office have filed felony criminal charges against you if you were not guilty?
In the Colorado criminal court system – you will have only two options – take the “deal” offered – or reject plea bargaining and set the case for trial.. that is the decision to plead guilty or not guilty. Under Colorado law – the judge, court personnel, the police officer that arrested and or ticketed you – are not permitted to help you with this decision – they cannot provide legal advice to you or to assist you in any way in presenting a defense.
Your constitutional rights are there and they will be enforced – but without a lawyer – no one is there to force the DA – and his or her “team of district attorneys” to defend the decision to charge you criminally – and to take the case to trial – and at trial – to prove each and every element of the criminal charges filed against you.
The Colorado criminal justice system is well known for being harsh and unforgiving, even for those who have been summoned into court and charged with a crime for the very first time. The severe direct penalties and collateral consequences – for ANY kind of criminal conviction stay with you for a lifetime and can easily destroy what you have worked so hard to build to this point. Now is not the time to “go cheap.”
