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.
