Start Fighting Your Colorado Charges
By Scheduling a Free Initial Consultation
The longer you wait to start building your defense against criminal charges, the harder they will be to fight. Why? Because you are essentially giving the prosecutor a head start. Moreover, when you are in a pressured position — an interrogation room, for instance — you may find yourself talking under the assumption that you have no choice. Far too often, this results in people saying things that hurt their case. The right time to reach out to a knowledgeable defense attorney is always: as soon as possible. As soon as you are charged — or even if you just sense the possibility of criminal charges on the horizon — stay quiet and request an attorney.
The Law Office of Jacob E. Martinez can advise when you can speak for yourself and when they should speak on your behalf. The difference between a charge and an acquittal really can hang in the balance of just a few words.
Do not take Colorado criminal charges lightly. Navigating our criminal justice system on your own could lead to dire, life-long consequences. This is true in some situations even if your charges seem relatively minor. Far too often, there are hidden costs and punishments that people do not know about until it is too late.
Give your case the attention and respect it deserves. Fill out our online case evaluation form, or reach out to the Law Office of Jacob E. Martinez today for a free initial consultation. You will rest easier knowing your case is in skilled hands.
