A Murder Charge Does Not Mean A Guilty Verdict
There are defenses to Murder charges.
During a murder trial, the focus is on your intent. Did you mean for this incident to happen? Was the murder premeditated? Were you defending yourself or another? Because the defendant is often in Adams County Jail or under a strict no-contact order, they can't gather their own evidence or interview witnesses for their defense. Don't worry. We do all the leg work for the case. We have dedicated investigators, counselors, expert witnesses and other sources to aid us in presenting your defense. We want to reveal the truth of the situation, not just read and accept what the police reports say as many lawyers do. We know Denver Police officers often exaggerate or misquote witnesses.
Murder Charges: Different Scenarios in Colorado
We understand that sometimes accidents happen. Sometimes the death of an individual is necessary in self-defense. At other times, the victim of the crime was being careless in his or her actions, and is responsible for their death. Although you may have had a little to drink, that doesn't mean you were driving drunk.
