May I get personal for a moment? This post shares my personal perspective on being a criminal defense lawyer in Colorado Springs.
One of the aspects of being a criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs is dealing with a large number of criminal cases, with various sets of facts and circumstances. Each criminal charge, whether DUI, DWAI, assault, harassment, domestic violence, or theft is unique. The facts of a criminal case and the history of the individuals involved will help determine the negotiations and outcome of the case.
One of the best aspects of being a criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs is helping people. The American Justice system remains the best system in the world. If I was accused of violating a law, there is no other country in the world where I would rather face those accusations. It is a system that has many positive aspects and a few negative ones. With that being said, as a criminal defense attorney, I see a different perspective than most other people who have been involved in the legal system.
As a criminal defense lawyer in Colorado Springs and Teller County, I often represent people charged with Criminal Mischief. This charge can mainly be described as the destruction of someone else’s property. Colorado Revised Statute 18-4-501 defines the crime as follows.
You’ve made a mistake and have been charged with a crime, or even worse, you’ve been accused of something you didn’t do. Now the full weight of the legal system is coming down on you with unmerciful & crushing force. The pressure is mounting and the walls seem to be closing in around you. What do you do now?
If you have been arrested or are facing criminal charges, a good Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney is imperative. While it may seem tempting at first to try and represent yourself, doing so could have dire consequences. Those who represent themselves in a criminal defense case are expected to have the same legal knowledge as an experienced lawyer.
