A Criminal Defense Lawyer's Perspective - How Christmas is Unjust

In over 25 years as a Denver Criminal Defense Lawyer, I've traveled across Colorado to places in the east and west like Yuma and Grand Junction; and the north and south from Fort Collins to Trinidad. Everywhere I go, judges and district attorneys preach the same message. Whether it is a crime of Robbery, Theft or Assault, the message is: Commit the crime, do the time. After all, they say, justice demands a punishment which fits the crime.

Don't Shoot the Lawyer Messenger

My clients want results and love good news from their lawyer in their Denver criminal cases. They want hope and if necessary, a miracle. The last thing they want to hear is bad news about their case. This includes news related to the evidence, the law and a likely sentence. However, in criminal cases, all the news is not good news. When bad news arrives or when client expectations are not met, all too often they shoot the messenger.

Denver Criminal Trial Lawyer Trust

ID-10011750.jpgI recently had a meeting with a client who appeared genuinely upset that I did not speak more dramatically on his behalf in front of the judge at a recent court hearing. He expected that I would respond aggressively with a loud denial each time the DA said he committed a crime. This hearing had nothing to do with whether he committed the crime, but was a motions hearing focused on the admissibility of some prior bad acts evidence (which was not that bad).

Choosing the Best Denver Criminal Defense Lawyer

They ask about my success rate and how many cases I have handled. Since this is a difficult question to answer, let me offer readers some suggestions on how to locate the best criminal defense attorney for their case.

Do Clients Want Their Lawyer to Lie?

We are enjoying an ever increasing number of new cases and wonderful clients to work with.  Yet, on occassion, we are terminated from representing a client and the client hires a new lawyer.  That happened recently to our firm, and it caused me to write this blog.  I know why we were terminated, and thinking about it makes me wonder whether I should lie to you.
