Criminal charges present serious complications for defendants, especially those without unlimited financial resources.
While most people know that criminal convictions can land you in jail, some are unaware of the financial ramifications imposed by the criminal justice system.
In many cases, you have to come up with the funds to bond yourself out of jail, pay an attorney to represent you, and still end up with costly fines as part of your sentence.
Finding an affordable criminal defense lawyer can alleviate some of these financial concerns. A good, affordable attorney can also cut your costs by negotiating to have your charges reduced or to have your court fees waived.
But as the common saying goes, you get what you pay for. Hiring a cheap criminal defense lawyer does not mean you have to agree to a cheap defense strategy.
The Lux Law Firm prides itself on providing affordable, effective legal representation to individuals charged with criminal violations in Colorado.
We can work with you to prepare the best possible strategy for having your charges reduced or dismissed altogether, without breaking the bank.
Experience Representing Criminal Defendants
While any licensed attorney can take your case, it is important to hire a lawyer who has experience representing defendants against criminal charges. Criminal court presents different challenges than civil court and an attorney without experience can negatively impact your defense.
Our affordable defense lawyers at The Lux Law Firm have a great deal of experience in criminal trials. Furthermore, our founding attorney, Austin Lux, previously worked as a Deputy District Attorney. This means he was responsible for charging and prosecuting criminal defendants at the county level.
As a prior prosecutor, Mr. Lux has a distinct advantage over other defense attorneys. Why? Because his insider knowledge of how the prosecutor puts together a case is incredibly valuable.
He was a prosecutor, so he knows how they think and how they work to convict people. Therefore, our entire team knows the strategies commonly used by prosecutors to put pressure on defendants to accept bad plea deals.
We know how prosecutors strategize. With our finger on the pulse of the prosecution, we can better create a strategy that gets you the best possible outcome for your case.

A lawyer’s professional reputation can play a vital role in a client’s decision on whether or not to hire them. Lawyers who earn recognition for their expertise have the respect of their peers in the legal field. They also have the experience and knowledge necessary to provide a strong defense for their clients.
When seeking an affordable criminal defense lawyer, take time to evaluate the professional recognition received by the attorneys you are considering. Some examples of professional recognition include:
- Inclusion in lists of Top Lawyers in their field;
- Membership in organizations that recognize top attorneys in a particular area of law;
- Acknowledgment in legal articles; or
- Awards for Best Attorney and other designations.
The recognition and awards received by attorneys are typically found in their bios on their law firm’s website.
Testimonials from former clients can offer the most realistic review of an attorney’s representation.
Testimonials often reflect whether the attorney was successful in the case, whether the client’s interests were represented, and whether the client was satisfied with the attorney overall. These first-hand testimonials can help you determine whether a particular attorney can meet your needs.
Many law firms include a page on their website reflecting some of their most recent case results. When evaluating the case results, some things you should look out for include:
- Whether any of the cases have gone to trial;
- Whether the firm primarily defends against certain criminal charges; and
- How often the case results page receives updates.
While attorneys cannot guarantee the outcome of any case, a law firm’s case results page can provide the best picture of whether the attorneys represent their clients effectively.
