How We Handle DV Cases

Domestic Violence Defense: The Evans Firm in Colorado

First, please see our page on domestic violence cases in general. Also see our law blog and constitutional rights page to protect yourself. After you call us, we follow the following general procedures:

  1. Enter our appearance as your attorney with the Court and stop any contact between you and law enforcement and prosecutors. All communication goes through us.
  2. Demand a complete copy of the prosecutor's file - all evidence, police reports, witness statements, photos, DNA analysis, video (if available), 911 calls (if available).
  3. Meet with you to learn about the case. Discern what your goals are. Advise you as to the law in Colorado.
  4. Hire an investigator to procure favorable evidence that the police or prosecutor may have overlooked or not collected.
  5. Review the prosecution's evidence once received.
  6. Look for issues where the police exceeded their legal authority, then research, write, and file the appropriate motions to suppress certain evidence. This could involve issues with entry of a home, statements, or arrest.
  7. Negotiate with the prosecutor to attempt to obtain some type of favorable plea bargain or settlement. This will factor in your goals, what you are charged with (and the maximum penalties for the charge, any favorable facts in the case, and any mitigating circumstances (including your character).
  8. Litigate the motions to suppress in court (assuming no favorable resolution, settlement, or plea bargain reached).
  9. Prepare your case for trial. This includes developing a defense theory and theme, procuring evidence and witnesses, and drafting cross examination for the prosecution's witnesses. If you decide to testify at your trial, we also prepare you for that.
  10. Fight in the courtroom at trial (assuming no favorable resolution, settlement, or plea bargain reached). This is where we excel. We have more trial experience than most private criminal defense lawyers.
