Experienced Defense for Violent Crime Cases in Colorado

If you are facing charges for a violent crime in Denver, it is crucial to seek the counsel and representation of an experienced attorney. The potential penalties of a conviction can be life changing. They often include hefty fines, long-term prison sentences, and collateral effects. It is also not uncommon for convictions to limit a person’s housing options or prevent them from seeking certain kinds of employment. Similarly, a conviction can limit a person’s right to vote, own a gun, drive, and more.
