Felony Defense Attorney In Colorado Springs

Felonies are the most serious of criminal charges. Consequences usually involve prison time, fines and a permanent restriction on the rights and freedoms of those who are convicted. Defending felonious charges is best handled by an attorney who is experienced, knowledgeable and competent.

Anyone Can Be Charged

The criminal justice system makes it relatively easy for law enforcement to bring charges against anyone as long as they meet certain basic requirements. Even those who are attempting to do good can get caught up in a legal nightmare simply by being at the wrong place at the wrong time. A simple error in judgment, an innocent mistake or a misunderstanding that is blown out of proportion or taken out of context can land someone in prison for years.

Context Is Everything

Context is important in the prosecution, as well as defense of a felony. Analyzing the circumstances and totality of events is an important aspect of determining guilt or innocence. However, the letter of the law can be easily manipulated by police and prosecutors in order to get arrests, convictions and close cases.

Appropriate Representation Is Important

Attorneys have skills and experience with specific areas or categories of the law. A good criminal defense attorney understands the Colorado criminal code, how cases are prosecuted and how they are won or lost. Experience goes hand in hand with competence, and an attorney who “knows the ropes” will be a better source of advice, counsel and guidance.

Experience only goes so far because that knowledge must be applied. Defending clients who are facing felonies takes time, dedication, focus, effort, resources and an uncanny ability to see the big picture as well as the smallest detail.

The McDowell Law Firm understands that each client is much more than a case number that is being shoved through the legal system. Lives are on the line, futures are at stake and freedom often hangs in the balance.

Mounting A Solid Defense Begins With Listening

Many attorneys do not really listen to their clients. They look at a case, begin to develop a strategy and push their ideas through irrespective of what the client thinks or feels. This can lead to a weak or implausible defense that may ultimately put the client in jeopardy.

Most defendants have one chance at making their case, and it falls on the attorney to present a defense that is solid. This begins and ends with listening, having open lines of communication and building a relationship based on trust and mutual understanding.
