Are you being investigated for a crime in Colorado and need a Denver criminal defense attorney to fight for you? Steven J. Pisani is one Denver’s top rated criminal defense attorney. He has a thorough knowledge of the Colorado criminal law, and will provide aggressive defense to enable you reach a favorable outcome for your criminal case.

Facing criminal charges is not only a frightening experience but also it can disrupt your entire life. You might be forced to be in custody and miss work, pay huge fines, and lose your privileges including your driver’s license. The outcome of a criminal conviction can be life-altering, especially if you face a jail sentence.

What to Do When Facing Criminal Investigations or Arrest

Whether you have been arrested or are under investigation, it is best to take critical moves to ensure that your reputation, freedom, and rights are protected. During such a situation, your best bet is to remain silent until you have got legal representation from one of Denver’s experienced criminal defense lawyers.

Do not make the mistake of trying to convince an officer that you are innocent or make a statement hoping that you will go scot-free. Every word you tell a law enforcement agent can be recorded and monitored.

It is advisable that you remain silent as anything you confess can haunt and incriminate you at the trial. The prosecutor can use any inconsistent statements or damaging confessions you make, to build their case.

Thus, instead of making statements that might work against you, it is good to explain that you will not make any statements until you speak to your criminal defense attorney. By not willing to make a statement and assert your right to only speak in the presence of a lawyer, you will be protecting your rights.

By allowing Steven J. Pisani to handle your case, you won’t face the challenges alone. The Denver criminal defense attorney can advise you on your rights, how to act, and what to say so that you don’t get into more trouble. Besides, he will ensure that no one violates your rights and that law enforcement agents follow all the required procedures and protocols.

If you are facing any criminal charges or investigations, do not wait until it is too late. The initial days are usually essential in each case and the earlier you engage us, the sooner Pisani can start building a strong case on your behalf.

The Types of Criminal Cases We Can Help Represent

At Pisani Law, we provide legal representation to clients faced with arrests or investigations for the following crimes:

Drug Crimes

  • Marijuana crimes – While marijuana is legalized in Colorado, we still have strict federal and state laws regarding the sale, possession, distribution, and cultivation of marijuana.
  • Drug distribution – When cases involving drugs include colossal amounts of illegal drugs found along with other items, such as packaging materials and scales, then drug distribution charges come into the picture. Such serious drug charges can rise well to the federal level.
  • Possession – With drug possession charges, establishing whether the officers had a warrant to search the accused or the accused’s property can be critical for building a defense.

Felony Defense

  • Arson – Illegally setting someone’s property ablaze can be charged as arson. The property type and extent of damage can influence the severity of charges.
  • Felony assault – Assault charges may be filed under class 4 or class 3 felonies, depending on whether the assault led to a disfiguring, permanent, or life-threatening injury.
  • Aggravated robbery – using a dangerous weapon to take valuables from a person can attract these charges. This is a class 3 felony whose punishment can be a prison term of up to 12 years.
  • Manslaughter – The accused’s provocation, the heat of passion, and misidentification, are examples of defense arguments that may help to fight manslaughter charges.
  • Identity theft – Stealing and using someone’s financial or personal information may be filed under class 4 felonies and attract serious charges.
  • Weapons chargesWeapons and guns charges may be associated with severe penalties, especially if such offenses are connected to serious crimes, such as murder or violence. In the most serious scenarios, such charges can get to the federal level.
  • Theft – Stealing property worth $1,000 or more may trigger felony theft charges. The total may result from several instances of theft or from receiving stolen items or failing to return hired property.

Misdemeanor Offenses

  • Domestic violence – Physical injury or contact is not necessary to face domestic violence charges. Threats are enough to attract these charges.
  • Misdemeanor assault – The charges are usually filed as class 1 misdemeanors and can attract a prison term of up to two years.

 Traffic Violations

Traffic offenses are typically serious and can result in jail time. Examples include:

  • Tailgating
  • Improper passing
  • Improper U-turn
  • Careless driving
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving without a license
  • Driving without insurance
  • Driving under influence
  • Hit and run
  • Street racing
  • Not obeying a stop sign

The above list of offense, misdemeanors, and crimes is not exhaustive. If you are facing charges for an offense not listed here, contact us to determine the best way we can assist you.

Robust Criminal Defense Strategies

Providing effective against criminal charges can be challenging. The accused have an uphill task ahead of them, as the prosecutors and police departments have massive resources and incentives at their disposal to arrest and convict wrongdoers in the community.

Consequently, cases are usually complex and obviously call for the intervention of a competent lawyer to protect the defendant’s constitutional rights.
