Fighting To Minimize The Consequences Of A Criminal Charge

A criminal conviction can alter your life in ways you cannot imagine. You are likely aware that a criminal conviction can lead to fines, probation and even incarceration depending on the charge. A criminal conviction could also keep you from driving, damage your professional opportunities and harm your reputation in your community. The only thing standing between you and these dire consequences could be your criminal defense lawyer.

What You Need To Know About Legalization Of Marijuana

The recent legalization of marijuana in Colorado has dramatically changed the criminal justice system. Despite the legalization of this drug, there are still limits as to how much marijuana a person may legally own. In addition, you must be 21 to possess marijuana and use must be at home, not in public. Furthermore, individuals can still be charged with driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while ability impaired (DWAI). If you have been charged with any marijuana-related offenses, we stand ready to help.
