We will fight to save your license and freedom! Semper Vigilis
When you've been arrested for a DUI in Denver Boulder metro area or beyond and you think it's serious enough to find this site, you need lawyers who can protect your rights...make sure you're treated fairly...and who know how to get results. You've just found those lawyers.
We understand that you're probably feeling confused, angry, or somewhat fearful about what's happened to you. The process of being arrested, taken to jail, fingerprinted, and photographed was probably very dehumanizing to you. We sincerely sympathize with that.
To be honest with you--you're faced with a charge which can have serious
outcomes. (Please see what your DUI may cost. Under the new felony law, the stakes are now much higher if you have three prior lifetime convictions any where in the US.) We don't want to scare you, but let us give you a glimpse of what's in store for you. If your case goes the wrong way you could lose your license, your insurance could go up, you could be fined, it could hurt you when you apply for a job, and you could even go to jail. Still Uncertain of What To Do? Read This.
Colorado Drunk Driving Lawyers: Helping you keep your Driving Licence and Freedom
We know you're fearful about what might happen to you, but we'd like you to know that we can help. Did you know that there are at least 20 possible challenges that can be made to the charges you are facing? With an experienced staff of Denver DUI lawyers, we can raise applicable ones for you so your case is as strong as possible.
Sure, we can just generate the forms and talk to the District Attorney, but in many cases the best choice is to fight. Those are the kind of case we focus on.
Our goal is to get you off, to keep your record clean, and to prevent you from losing your freedom and your license to drive. You see . . . our practice is based on the belief that you were arrested when you shouldn't have been.
At the very least, we'll make sure that you're being treated fairly.
The District Attorneys in Denver and Colorado prosecute these types of cases all day.
They know--and are willing to use against you--all of the fine legal points that are available to them.
The Colorado DUI law says that they only need to prove that after drinking you were not able to drive your car safely or that your blood alcohol exceeds a certain limit. That sounds pretty cut and dried, but it's not quite as simple as that.
You see, if challenged, the DA also has to show that the arresting officer made the arrest properly, that you were properly advised of your rights, that the equipment he used to test you was working accurately, and even that the person operating that equipment was certified to operate it. If he gets information which may prove you innocent, a lawyer can make him give you that information also.
We have experience in the numerous Denver DUI metro courts and beyond and understand how various judges rule on DUI cases. As your DUI defense attorneys, we understand how to best approach your case in order to have the most realistic chance of a successful outcome.
We know how and where to make the proper motions which force the DA to prove that all the steps used in your arrest were done properly. If they weren't, then his case is weakened.
We can't promise you that we'll be successful because each case is unique.
Maybe the judge assigned to your case is more lenient on drunk driving cases, or maybe he is harsher on them.
Maybe there are some things distinctive to your case which are important. However, all things being equal,
we think you'll find that we are well-skilled and that we fiercely protect your rights available to you in a DUI case — whether in Denver, Boulder or elsewhere in Colorado.
When you retain us you'll get expert legal help from Denver based DUI lawyers who know how to guide your case through the complexities of the legal system because we've done it thousands of times. You'll be certain you are being treated fairly by the judicial system because we'll insist:
that the District Attorney provide us with the name and address of anyone he plans to call as a witness, as well as copies of every written or recorded statements of their testimony. This will allow us to prepare our questions for them.
that the DA provide us with any information or material he has which would show that you are not guilty of the charges against you, or which may help you get a lighter sentence.
on receiving copies of records showing that the equipment used for tests was functioning properly, and that the person giving the tests was properly certified.
on proof that you were advised of all of your rights. If you weren't, the DA's case may be weakened.
Demand a jury of twelve if your case is a felony charge or six if it is a misdemeanor.
We'll make the District Attorney produce his proof and let him know that we will be contesting in court all these points mentioned. When his case is challenged, he has to take a lot of time producing this material and witnesses.
As you can see, what looks simple gets pretty complex. As your DUI attorneys, who have worked thousands of cases throughout Denver (and Colorado), we will look
into all of these things for you so that you will have the best possible case.
Actually, there is more, but we don't have space here to tell you all of it.
