Denver Criminal Defense Lawyer
What to Do After an Arrest
The very first thing that you must do in the aftermath of an arrest is to contact a criminal defense attorney to discuss your case. You cannot safely discuss the situation with anyone but your attorney, because the statements that you make could end up being used against you as evidence, or even construed as a confession. You should at all costs avoid speaking with anyone from the police department or the office of the district attorney. This is true even if they approach you with a friendly demeanor and suggest that by being cooperative you can make the situation go away.
Remember: Their job is to solve crimes and convict people, and right now they are looking at you as their suspect. It is you versus the state of Colorado, and the odds are stacked against you.

How soon do you need a criminal defense lawyer?
Whenever possible, we urge our clients to retain our services at the earliest opportunity, even if you have not yet been contact by the police. If you have reason to believe that you may be under investigation for a crime, you should speak with us and get us involved to intervene on your behalf. By doing so, you make it possible for us to contact the law enforcement agency and seek to resolve the situation without an arrest.
Sometimes we can clear up confusions, such as if our client has been mistakenly identified as the suspect in an investigation. In other cases, we may be able to negotiate to have the investigation dropped. If a loved one has already been arrested, you should hire us right now so that we can appear at the arraignment and advise your family member of his or her rights.
We can argue for a low amount for bail or perhaps even an own-recognizance release so that the person can get out of jail without posting bail. In the event that you have already been released after being charged with a crime, you should retain our services immediately so that we can begin working on a strategy for your defense. After reviewing the evidence, or lack thereof, we may be able to press the prosecutor to dismiss the charges, or to negotiate for a favorable plea bargain.
If the case is headed for trial, we need as much time as possible to build the best defense for you. Take the first step now by filling out our free case evaluation form so that we can review the situation and begin working on a strategy for you. We serve clients in Denver, Arapahoe County and along the Front Range from Boulder to Castle Rock.
