How to Get the Best Outcome in Your Criminal Defense Case

by | Apr 18, 2015 | Criminal Defense

One of the best aspects of being a criminal defense attorney in Colorado Springs is helping people. The American Justice system remains the best system in the world. If I was accused of violating a law, there is no other country in the world where I would rather face those accusations. It is a system that has many positive aspects and a few negative ones. With that being said, as a criminal defense attorney, I see a different perspective than most other people who have been involved in the legal system.

Criminal defense cases are wide-ranging.

My clients in Colorado Springs and Teller County range from those accused of traffic violations, DUI, assault, domestic violence, driving under restraint, and felony charges. I have helped clients with extremely difficult cases, due to the evidence against them. Does it mean that I don’t fight? No! I’ve seen those types of cases dismissed because of relentless fighting and refusing to give in. Please don’t misunderstand, most cases where the defendant is guilty and the evidence is solid will result in some sort of plea agreement. However, those agreements are often better than it would be without the assistance of an experienced and hard-working Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney.

I can help you whether you’re innocent or have committed a crime.

The cases I love more than any other type of cases are the ones in which my client is actually innocent. One might think, an innocent person would never be charged with a crime. That is not true in the least. I represent people on a regular basis who are the victim of a misinterpretation of evidence or an over-zealous police officer.

It’s one thing to face punishment for a poor choice or deliberate action. It is quite another matter to face punishment for not doing anything wrong at all. Whether you find yourself facing criminal charges in Colorado Springs, please know that there are those out there who will help. At James Newby Law, I consider it a privilege to assist those who find themselves facing possible severe consequences. I do not care whether you committed the crime and don’t want the offer the district attorney is making or if you did not do what you are accused of doing or are somewhere in-between.

Penalties for crime can be severe in Colorado.

The fact remains that criminal penalties in Colorado are severe. Even a case, which results in no jail, is going to have a long-lasting effect. In our times, a criminal conviction will follow you are years to come. You may be tempted to accept the district attorney’s plea offer to plead guilty and take probation. It may feel easier to just get it out of the way. The problem is that with a little effort and the help of a Colorado Springs criminal lawyer it may have been a deferred sentence, which would ultimately result in a dismissal. If you do not try you will never know.

If you are charged with a speeding ticket, driving under restraint, DUI, DWAI, assault, harassment, menacing, felony drugs, sexual offenses, false information to a pawnbroker, or any felony or misdemeanor crime, please call James Newby Law. I work in El Paso County, Teller County, Colorado Springs, Woodland Park, Cripple Creek, Douglas County, Pueblo County, and the surrounding areas. I also handle numerous cases in the Colorado Springs Municipal Court.
