Aspen Domestic Violence Defense Attorney

Richard NedlinAs you may have recently learned firsthand, Colorado and New York law enforcement officers are tough and decisive when domestic violence allegations arise. If they believe they have probable cause for an arrest, they make one — even though what really happened and who did what may be matters of intense dispute. I am licensed to practice law in New York as well as Colorado.

Charged With Assault Or Stalking? Do You Need A Pitkin County Protective Order Violation Lawyer?

If a phrase such as domestic violence, spousal abuse or anything similar is referenced at any point in your case, your need for a highly qualified defense attorney cannot be overstated. Colorado laws covering domestic violence are complex. It is common for this extremely serious sentencing enhancer to be added — sometimes without the facts to support it — to underlying charges such as:

  • Assault and battery
  • Menacing
  • Harassment or stalking
  • Violation of an order of protection (sometimes called a restraining order)
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Firearm charges

A Former Prosecutor Who Will Analyze Your Case And Fight For Your Rights

During my nearly five years as a prosecutor, I handled many domestic violence (DV) cases — and this experience is invaluable in my work today as an Aspen domestic violence defense lawyer. Knowing what facts and evidence are required for conviction with a DV enhancement, I am equipped to analyze your case and aggressively target the best possible outcome through negotiation or at trial.

It is critical to take any charge with a domestic violence component seriously. Jail time is a real possibility, and your gun rights, current job and future prospects, and freedom to enter your home or see your children could all hang in the balance. After three convictions, the fourth will be a felony regardless of the actual charge.

I am Richard Nedlin, a responsive and resourceful lawyer who will work your criminal case directly — and I also have experience in divorce and custody cases. The most important decisions take place before you enter a plea, so call 970-236-6875 or contact me online as soon as you possibly can. I will provide a free consultation focused squarely on your needs and most important concerns.
