Domestic Abuse and Assault Defense Lawyer
In Colorado, if the police are called to a domestic disturbance, it is highly likely that someone will go to jail. Often the only evidence is one person’s word … but that is certainly enough to obtain a temporary restraining order and it can be enough to get a conviction in criminal court.
If you have been charged with domestic assault for violence against a family member or domestic partner, there is good reason to seek the advice of an attorney immediately. In most cases the “victim” will seek a restraining order, or a restraining order will be sought by victim services. While you may not be able to prevent the temporary order from being given, you may be able to prevent the order from becoming permanent by raising a strong defense.

A Prompt Defense Can Make a Difference in Your Case
While some criminal charges can take a long time to get through the court system, a restraining order request will be heard quickly and a temporary order will almost always be given. However, before the restraining order becomes permanent, there will be another hearing and you will have a chance to bring your case before the judge. As soon as you retain me, I will begin to investigate your case and seek evidence favorable to you.
