Greenwood Village Criminal Defense and Family Lawyers

Criminal Defense:

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. When in doubt, stay silent and assert your right to an attorney! We offer DIY packages for those looking for quick answers to basic legal questions (such as whether to talk to the cops). And we travel to our criminal defense clients throughout Colorado, meaning we can help more people cheaper. We offer virtual meetings via zoom and phone, as well.

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 criminal attorneys at Colorado Lawyer Team are able to:

In addition, our attorneys are regularly able to get clients released from jail on their own recognizance (called a personal recognizance or PR bond), released after posting a reduced amount of bail through a bondsman, and ultimately serve less jail time by successfully mitigating the case and negotiating with the prosecutor. Unrepresented defendants often 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.

Family law:

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.

Facing a dissolution of your marriage (divorce) or having to allocate parental responsibilities (child custody lawsuits) with your child’s other parent is undoubtedly a significant, challenging change of your life circumstances. Having legal representation who not only understands but can explain the nuances of the law, as well as each jurisdiction within Colorado, to advocate for your best interests is a smart choice. Our attorneys can help with negotiations for division of marital assets (spousal support, spousal maintenance, or alimony, for example), as well as calculating child support. Our attorneys are well-versed in the “best interests of the child” standard, and can fully explain what a court will consider. We handle mediations and appeals and are proud to provide Legal DIY help.

Family law clients are accepted throughout our geographic areas, and virtual meetings are offered. In some situations, it is helpful to still meet in person, and we have a variety of meeting locations available for in-person preparations.
