Let's just state the truth up front. Being accused of or charged with violent crimes is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. There is little doubt that even the accusation alone will have a lasting and negative impact on a person's life. Worse, if a conviction is made, the defendant will lose not just his or her freedom, but family ties and civil rights as well.
Building a solid criminal defense is vital to emerging from the experience with as little harm as possible. This is why it is so important to get a defense lawyer as early as possible. However, in cases involving murder or assault allegations, not just any attorney will do. You will need a lawyer with experience and demonstrable skill in creating defense strategies.
Our Denver, Colorado, law firm has this experience. We have worked with many defendants in developing strategies that improved their defense. Our lawyers have the experience and dedication necessary to assess each case individually and recommend a number of criminal defense options.
Under the law, you have the right to tell your side of the story and to defend yourself zealously. When you have the right legal partner by your side, your chances of creating a winning defense improve.
It is impossible to predict the future and say whether or not you will be successful in your criminal defense efforts. What we can say is that going it alone will probably not do you any favors.
