Personal Message From James Newby

by | Sep 1, 2015 | Criminal Defense

My name is James Newby and I am a criminal defense lawyer in Colorado Springs.   May I get personal for a moment?

When you are looking for a lawyer, particularly a criminal defense lawyer or a DUI attorney, make sure that that your lawyer cares about you personally. Let me tell you as one who has practiced both prosecution and criminal defense, to be truly a good attorney in the area of criminal defense, you need to care about the people you represent.

There is no doubt that it is much more difficult to represent someone you care about.

Your Problems Are My Problems

james newby criminal defense law firmWhen I have a client, their problems become my problems and their stress becomes my stress. It’s  not easy taking on the problems of people you hardly know. However, this is the profession I have chosen and I would not change it at all.

When I represent someone they become my friend. I treat your case the same as if it was my case.

Competent And Knowledgeable About The Law

When a person looks to hire a Colorado Springs Criminal Defense attorney, they want someone who is competent and knowledgable about the law. They want someone who knows their way around a court room. Trial skills are a must if you want proper representation. If the District Attorney knows that you may go to trial, it is easier to negotiate and get what you want.  Just as important as being good at one’s craft is caring about the people one serves.

The Need To Do All I Can For You

I have spoken to lawyers who over the years understand that caring about a client can be very difficult. It means there is pressure. There is a desire to help, which at times can be very difficult because that person’s actions have made it almost impossible to help.

My hope is that each person who hires me to represent them understands that I care about them as a person. I want them to be happy, to live their life in such a way as to avoid future problems. I want to do all within my power to make sure they know that I did all I could for them. If you have been charged with a crime in Colorado Springs, whether a DUI, DWAI, assault, harassment, theft, traffic violation, speeding, reckless driving, careless driving, hit and run, leaving the scene of an accident, or domestic violence, I am hear to help.

I can not promise you that your problems will go away, but we will work through them together.
