Arrested? Accused of a crime? Let Me Help You.
It feels like you just ran blindly into a giant. The first time that you’re charged with a crime, you realize how imposing the criminal justice system really is. It’s a behemoth made up of thousands of officers, attorneys, and bureaucrats. For the first time in your life, you become a number. An inmate number, a case number, a bond number. You’re evaluated, analyzed, and processed over and over again. If you’ve seen Law and Order, you might be tempted to think that the whole process will be over in thirty minutes (minus a few commercial breaks), but by the time your third court date rolls around, you realize how different real life court is from the popular TV dramas. It’s a huge grinding machine that can crush you under its weight, or chew you up and spit you out if you make the wrong move.
The Supreme Court has repeatedly said that the purpose of the criminal justice process is to advance the search for truth. But how can you find the truth in a stifling network of statues, rules, and cases? The 2020 version of the Colorado Revised Statutes is 25,733 pages long. This does not include the procedural rules, rules of evidence, or the hundreds of thousands of judicial decisions (known as “case law”) interpreting these rules. If it feels overwhelming, that’s because it is.
The truth is that no one can do this on their own. It takes years of study and practice to learn the law and then know how to implement it.
Our criminal defense lawyers in Colorado Springs have that experience. Our knowledge comes from the inside. Before moving into private practice, Austin spent years working as a prosecutor. During that time he appeared in front of dozens of judges, spoke to hundreds of jurors, and reviewed thousands of cases. After spending months out of each year in trial, he learned what it takes to win.
