Don't let a criminal arrest in Colorado ruin your future!

Hire a Former Prosecutor

Called in for questioning in Colorado?

Many of our clients seek the help of our criminal defense lawyers after they have been arrested or when a loved one is in custody, but others have merely been contacted by investigators. If you have been asked to come in for questioning in relation to a crime, you may think that this is your opportunity to tell your side of the story and clear up the situation.

After all, the investigators seem very friendly and the situation seems very straightforward to you, right? The truth is that you should not assume that the detective is your friend. His or her job is to solve crimes, and the reason you have been contacted is that he or she thinks you did it.

Do you really need to hire a criminal defense attorney?

Contact Our Criminal Defense Attorneys in Colorado Springs

If you go in to tell your story, you will merely be giving the police evidence they can use against you. Even if you don't admit to committing the crime, you may end up helping the police enormously by confirming facts such as that you were at the scene of the crime. Even worse, you might lie to the police, which could get you in even worse trouble. Don't run the risk of incriminating yourself. Inform the detective that you have hired us to represent you, so that we can intervene on your behalf and seek to resolve the situation in your favor.

Contact us our practiced criminal defense lawyers soon as possible to start building the strong defense you deserve!
