Tough Criminal Defense Representation For Domestic Violence Charges

As you may have recently learned firsthand, Colorado 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! Little is taken into account of what really happened especially when the who did what may be matters of intense dispute. It is crucial 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 P. Nedlin, the founding attorney for the Law Office of Richard P. Nedlin, LLC, and I work with clients in Aspen, Denver and the ski resort towns of Colorado who require criminal defense services for charges of domestic violence. As a former prosecutor, I understand both sides of this area of the law.

Complex Charges Require A Skilled Defense Lawyer

Richard P NedlinIf 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 an extremely serious sentencing enhancer to be applied — 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

Rely On My Background As A Former Prosecutor

During my 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 trial.
