Denver Criminal Defense Lawyer
Arrested for an alleged criminal offense? Call us!
When you come to The Evans Firm for help after an arrest, you can have confidence in knowing that your case is in the hands of an aggressive litigator, not a paper pusher. Many criminal defense attorneys do very little upfront work on their clients' cases, hoping that they will instead be able to get an easy plea bargain and then move on to the next case. Only when it is clear that the case will have to go to trial do they really start preparing for a fight. Our criminal lawyers in Denver take a different approach. We get to work immediately on preparing for trial, and we assume that we will have to go all the way to defend our client.

Marijuana Crimes Defense in Denver
In the November 2012 elections, the voters of Colorado approved Amendment 64, becoming one of the first two states to legalize marijuana. Now, the legal status of marijuana in Denver and statewide is similar to that of alcohol. Adults aged 21 or older can grow limited quantities of cannabis, can possess up to an ounce of pot while traveling, and can give the drug as a gift to another adult aged 21 or older. Adults can also legally consume marijuana. Amendment 64 does not, however, give
carte blanche in the cultivation, distribution and possession of marijuana.
Defending Against Drug Crime Charges
You can still be arrested for drug possession if you are caught with more than an ounce, just as you can be arrested for
drug distribution based on allegations that you violated the laws concerning the sale or gifting of marijuana. We represent clients on charges involving marijuana offenses and other types of
drug crimes. America's War on Drugs has resulted in overcrowded prisons and the largest prison population in the world, while the rates of drug use continue to climb. We want to help you avoid the life-changing ramifications of a drug-related arrest, including fines and prison as well as a criminal record that could ruin your future.
Don't Speak with the Police
You might think that it should be relatively easy to resolve this situation by telling the police your side of the story. Maybe you have been called in for questioning and believe that you can handle the matter by being polite and helpful, explaining what happened and convincing the police officer or investigator of your innocence. This would be a serious mistake.
Remember: The police officer's job is to investigate crimes and to arrest perpetrators. When you speak with the officer, he or she will not be looking for evidence to prove your innocence, but will instead be trying to get you to say things that can be used as evidence or may even be construed as a confession.
Unless you are a crime victim or witness, a police officer will only be talking to you because he or she suspects that you are guilty. Instead of talking to a police officer, politely say, "I am more than happy to answer all of your questions. Would you mind if I just get my attorney here before we begin?"
Invoke your right to counsel and your right to remain silent at all times if you are serious about protecting yourself and maximizing your chances of avoiding a conviction. By hiring an attorney at the very outset of the case, it may even be possible to prevent an arrest and resolve the situation with a minimum of disruption in your life.
