Have you or a loved one found yourselves entangled in a theft charge? If so, you're aware that it's a situation that can quickly become overwhelming.
In Colorado, this type of offense ranges from minor incidents like petty theft — the unauthorized taking of items of little value — to more consequential crimes such as grand theft, which involves stealing items valued over $2,000.
A crime as old as civilization itself, it carries the potential for serious consequences including jail time and hefty fines. Beyond these immediate penalties, it can also leave a lasting scar not only on your personal but also on your professional reputation, often making it difficult to secure employment or housing.
As an experienced Greenwood Village criminal lawyer, I understand the gravity of these charges and the stress they bring. But remember, an accusation does not mean a conviction.
How I Can Help

Arrest and Charges
This initial stage involves law enforcement arresting and charging you based on the other party's evidence. While this is sure to be stressful for you, it is very important to remember that this does not equate to guilt–it simply marks the initiation of legal proceedings. As your lawyer, I step in at this point to remind you of this distinction and to begin strategizing for the road ahead.
Following the arrest, the accused will make their first appearance before a judge–a critical juncture where you'll be made aware of the charges against you and your rights as a defendant. It's now my job to ensure you fully understand these and to start laying the groundwork for your defense.
A plea of guilty, not guilty, or no contest. This decision is not one to be taken lightly, that's why I'll help you weigh the potential repercussions of each option.
Pretrial Conference and Motions
During this phase, the defense and prosecution discuss your case. I will then use my expertise in negotiation and strategy formulation to potentially steer it toward a more favorable outcome for us.
If no plea deal is agreed upon, your case proceeds to trial. Here, the prosecution must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt–a challenging threshold. With me as your Greenwood Village defense lawyer, we can craft a compelling defense and challenge it effectively.
If you're found guilty, the court determines the appropriate sentence based on the severity of your offense and other relevant factors. In such a scenario, I continue to advocate fiercely for you, arguing for the most lenient sentencing terms possible.
Let me stand up for your rights and guide you through this process.
Together–we can face this challenge head-on!
