Aspen DUI Defense Attorney

Richard NedlinIn Colorado, driving with alcohol in your system is not in itself illegal — but driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) and driving while ability impaired (DWAI) are both serious charges. Even for a first offense, conviction could bring mandatory jail time, a lengthy driver's license revocation and other life-changing consequences. I am licensed to practice law in New York as well as Colorado.

The legal thresholds for proving that you were driving while impaired are far lower than many people realize. Whatever the exact circumstances of your arrest, and whatever decisions you made on the scene, it's the next choice you make that really matters. For solid information about your rights and options, I encourage you to contact me, Aspen DUI defense lawyer Richard Nedlin, just as soon as you can.

Turn To A Trial-Proven Former Prosecutor And Skilled Negotiator

While serving as a deputy district attorney in Pitkin County, I prosecuted more than 1,000 alcohol-related driving cases over a five-year period. As a result, I am adept at determining whether your rights were violated, whether there are problems with the evidence against you, and what the best defense or negotiating strategy is in your case.

You can count on me to hear you out and consider every relevant aspect of your case. Based on the facts and your personal priorities, the best path may be:

  • Moving for a dismissal of your DUI or DWAI charge if my investigation unearths serious problems with the arrest or evidence, such as an improperly administered breath or blood test
  • Negotiating with the prosecuting attorney for a deferred judgment sentence or other manageable outcome if this is your first alcohol-related offense
  • Taking your case to trial if other options are not acceptable and you decide fighting to the finish is the best option for you
