Greenwood Village Criminal Defense and Family Lawyers

We Travel to Our Clients Throughout Colorado

Being arrested and charged with a crime is likely to be a stressful, confusing, and frightening experience. Individuals in this situation may wish to exercise their right to an attorney and contact a Greenwood Village criminal lawyer as quickly as possible. You should not hesitate to get the legal advice that you may need following an arrest or when involved in any police investigation or questioning.

Additionally, bringing a neutral third party into any kind of family dispute can understandably seem like an aggressive choice, especially if that dispute ends up being one that has to be settled in court. However, having legal representatives present is often the best way for all parties involved in such a situation to get what they want, or at least find a mutually agreeable compromise.

While there is no guarantee of success in any legal matter, your odds of achieving a positive result in yours could be boosted significantly if you retain seasoned legal counsel. Failing to get legal advice early could jeopardize both your constitutionally protected rights, but also the way a lawyer would defend your case. Having the Colorado Lawyer Team at your side from the outset of any court proceedings will be instrumental to your ability to successfully protect your rights. When in doubt, don’t talk it out, stay silent!

Domestic Violence

Colorado law allows for people to be charged with crimes as an act of domestic violence if it is found that 1. the person charged was in an intimate relationship with the victim of the crime; AND 2. that person’s behavior was on a spectrum ranging from harassing up to violent against the victim of the crime. If you have been charged with a crime as an act of domestic violence, it is imperative that you speak to an attorney right away to learn your rights. Domestic violence convictions in Colorado can have serious impacts on your life and future.

Also, it is rare for any day spent in court to be an enjoyable one, but legal matters involving members of your family can often be especially stressful—not to mention legally complex. Family law functions very differently from other fields in the legal sphere, and if you are unprepared for the particularities of your specific case, you may have your work cut out for you obtaining a favorable outcome. While divorce is one of the most common court procedures that family lawyers in Greenwood Village could help with, it is far from the only one. Any legal matter that involves the legal rights of a family member is something with which a family attorney could provide guidance and support.

Get Help Handling Any Family Law Issues

Getting married is a monumental decision, but deciding to get divorced can be harder by several degrees. Before a person can even get started pursuing the dissolution of their marriage before a court, they have to fill out the right forms, ensure they qualify to seek a divorce in the State of Colorado, formally notify their spouse of their intentions, and then wait at least 91 days for the waiting period to be over—and that, unfortunately, is often just the start.

In addition to helping with the ins and outs of the divorce process itself, a Greenwood Village family attorney could also provide crucial representation during the various negotiations that must occur regarding the appropriate division of marital assets. Furthermore, they could advocate on an individual spouse’s behalf in favor of—or in opposition to—any order of spousal maintenance being considered by the court.

Issues related to child custody and support can get a bit more complicated, as courts in Colorado have sole jurisdiction over these decisions and will always rule in what they believe to be in the best interests of the child in question. However, a skilled family lawyer could tactfully represent an individual parent’s wishes and best interests and make the case that they match those of their child or children. Let the Colorado Lawyer Team fight for you and help with all aspects of your case.

Advantages to Legal Representation
in Greenwood Village

An experienced Greenwood Village criminal lawyer will be able to review the charges and determine the best course of action for your unique situation. The attorneys at Nicol Gersch Petterson are able to:

  • Investigate the facts and circumstances that led to criminal charges
  • Interview witnesses, view all evidence including all police reports, photos, and officer body cams
  • Evaluate the evidence supporting the allegations of illegal activity and attack the validity of an officer investigation if done improperly or in violation of your constitutional rights
  • Develop a solid defense strategy specifically tailored to the facts of your case and individual needs

In addition, our attorneys are regularly able to get clients released from jail on their own recognizance, released after posting a reduced amount of bail, and ultimately serve less jail time. Unrepresented defendants have fewer opportunities to challenge the charges against them, less likelihood of getting out of jail in advance of trial, and less chance of reaching a favorable resolution to their cases in the end.
