Driving Under the Influence
While DUI is one of the most commonly charged traffic offenses in Colorado, it is also a serious criminal offense that has the potential to impact an individual’s financial, professional, and personal life. Due to the serious nature of the potential consequences of a DUI conviction, it is essential to have a highly-experienced attorney who not only knows Colorado DUI law, but who also knows the court system, the science of DUI testing, and the time-sensitive nature of the procedures and filings in DUI matters. If you choose to go to trial, you need an attorney who possesses the confidence, experience, and technical proficiency necessary to vigorously and effectively defend your rights and interests in front of a jury.
If convicted of a DUI, the consequences may include jail time, substantial fines, a suspended driver’s license, as well as a damaged personal and professional reputation. With so much at stake, a highly-qualified attorney is essential.
