You Need a Criminal Lawyer Defense Team Who Only Practice Criminal Law

It is important for you to hire an attorney who knows the criminal law and the possible defense you may have. You wouldn't hire a pediatrician to perform surgery on your grandmother. You wouldn't hire a plumber to fix your car. So why would you hire a lawyer who doesn't exclusively practice in criminal law to defend you in your criminal charges? Let me share with you why hiring our attorneys to help you fight the government's charges will be beneficial to your charges of shoplifting.

Our law office is composed of four attorneys, three secretaries, and a paralegal. We are a different kind of criminal defense practice. First of all, we practice criminal law, exclusively. If you need to get a divorce, hire a tax attorney, or obtain a lawyer to sue the company that wrongfully fired you, we are not the firm for you. We practice solely in the field of criminal defense because that is what we know and that is what we are good at. We have over 40 years of combined legal experience. Our team is dedicated to helping protect your rights and fight for justice in your case. We will fight to get you the best possible result.

So, if you or a loved one are dealing with charges of Theft in Broomfield, Boulder, or Clear Creek, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and call us immediately at 303-731-0719. Together, we can protect your future.
