All types of criminal charges, regardless of severity, are serious and must be handled as such. No matter if you’re dealing with a misdemeanor or felony charge, convictions can result in hefty fines, lengthy prison time, and permanent damage to your and personal and professional life. A criminal record can cause difficulties when applying for a job, college, and even housing. It can also prevent you from joining the military and owning a firearm, and can result in stiffer penalties for any trouble you get into in the future. Because of this, it’s imperative that you contact a knowledgeable, experienced Fort Collins criminal defense attorney immediately when you’re accused of a crime or if you anticipate charges will soon be filed against you.

It’s important that your Fort Collins criminal defense attorney look at all evidence against you, as well as  develop the defense evidence on your side. This will help them determine whether you are likely to be convicted at trial. There are times where clients have been falsely accused, and our goal will be to have the case dismissed, or, alternatively, win the case in trial. In other cases, the evidence against a client may be overwhelming, and we can help to negotiate a strong plea agreement. However, there are always cases that things are not so cut-and-dry, and potential outcomes are uncertain. In those cases, we will fight tooth and nail for your rights–and for the best possible outcome.

We hired Kirk to represent my son. He did much more than that! He made sure my son had the best representation possible. He even went as far as making sure my son's records were expunged as well!! He is very knowledgeable, respectful, and thorough. He is by far the best lawyer EVER!

Our family was in need of a lawyer twice in the past 5 years. Both times we called upon Schwartz and Waible Law Firm. They worked very hard and kept us informed every step of the way. Helped understand the ins and the outs of the law. We were very pleased with the out come of both cases. Hopefully won’t need further need, but if we are won’t hesitate to call upon this law firm. So if you are looking for a Law Firm that works as a team, are caring about their clients, and will do the best job possible you may want to call upon Schwartz and Waible. Thank you so much for your help. Sharon and Jim, January, 2011 We welcome this opportunity to extol Kirk Waible, one of the finest lawyers we’ve ever known. Our background is in education—we are retired after long careers of teaching classes from kindergarten through graduate school. During the past year (2010), Kirk represented someone very close to us. In a difficult, often convoluted, case, Kirk cut right through the mazes of the legal system to present his client’s defense so effectively that the outcome was far more successful than we had ever hoped. We found Kirk to be personable, smart, thorough, accessible, and well-versed in the law. Years ago, I (Jim) worked at length for a state legislature and dealt with many, many lawyers on a daily basis. Some of them were brilliant in their profession. But I feel Kirk stands head and shoulders above even the best of them. We would engage him in an instant to represent us in any legal matter.
