Domestic violence, under Colorado law, is an altercation between family members. It could be a married couple; people living together; or people in an intimate relationship. If a police officer has probable cause to believe a crime has been committed, then he or she is required by law to arrest the accused.

Domestic violence Under Colorado law

Payment plans and financing are available to qualified clients and your first consultation is free

A Colorado domestic assault charge can be heartbreaking and unfairly split a family apart. Charges can be imposed for something as simple as slapping someone across the face or pulling someone by the hair. Domestic violence is an instance of abuse or assault that occurs between:

  • Spouses and former spouses
  • Parents and children
  • People related by blood
  • People who are presently residing together or who have resided together in the past
  • People who have a child in common regardless of whether they have been married or have lived together at any time
  • A man and woman if the woman is pregnant and the man is alleged to be the father, regardless of whether they have been married or have lived together at any time
  • People involved in a significant romantic or sexual relationship

Charges can also be brought against a family member, if there is a misunderstanding and one family member is made to feel afraid of being injured by another. If you are facing abuse accusations, call my office today. Let me fight to protect your rights. I provide my clients with the best possible defense in every case.

  • The history of your relationship
  • Stress factors that could have caused the incident such as money troubles or divorce
  • Evidence of drug or alcohol abuse

I am not afraid to challenge police reports or possible witness statements. Count on me to explore every option, including alternatives to jail such as diversion and educational programs. Whatever the circumstances, my goal is to minimize the charges against you to prevent a domestic violence conviction from being part of your permanent record. It is a heavily stigmatized crime that deserves vigorous defense.

Denver domestic assault and all forms of domestic violence are crimes in all 50 states. The majority of the cases we handle involve men facing serious charges for attacks against women, however, regardless of a client’s gender, we are proactive in finding a solution.
Once charges are filed, the chances that they will be dropped because a spouse has changed their mind are minimal. Even if the complainant recants, prosecutors may continue to pursue charges — with or without the alleged victim’s cooperation.

You need a lawyer to dispute your case from the start. I am an experienced criminal defense attorney and my years as a prosecutor give me a different perspective that can help your case. I have a strong track record of proving to district attorneys that unwarranted charges against my clients should be dismissed.
