Defending Against Felony and Misdemeanor Charges

Fort Collins criminal defense lawyers Geri Joneson and Rachel Michael have the skills, experience and resources to develop an aggressive defense against Misdemeanor and Felony Charges in northern Colorado, including:

  • Drunk Driving Charges: For many people, a DUI or DWAI arrest is their first exposure to the legal system. It can be a very humiliating and devastating experience. The legal system is overwhelming for someone unfamiliar with it. We believe that every client is unique and that his or her DUI/DWAI case is also unique. We pride ourselves on being able to provide our clients with all of the information necessary to understand their DUI case and instructions on how to successfully complete their sentence. We will answer all of your questions and explain Why you Should Hire a Good DUI Lawyer and what to do After the DUI Arrest.
  • Drug Offenses: Drug Offenses can be charged several different ways; Unlawful Use, Distribution, Possession With Intent to Distribute and Manufacture. The charges you face depend upon the type and amount of drug that was involved. A Drug Offense can be charged as a Misdemeanor or as a Felony; both carry serious penalties.
  • Assault and Harassment Charges: More often than not, Assault cases do not have any independent witnesses or may have many witnesses and different versions of what happened. Our client's perception of the incident is just as important as the alleged victim's perception of the incident. All of the facts and circumstances should be presented to the prosecutor so that he or she can make an informed decision about the disposition of the case. When you select our law firm, you can feel confident knowing we have extensive experience defending against First-Degree, Second-Degree and Third-Degree Assault Charges.
  • Domestic Violence Charges: In Colorado, Domestic Violence is a sentencing enhancer; it is not a separate charge. This means that the final sentence for Assault, Harassment, Criminal Mischief, and even Trespassing can be increased or penalties made more severe if specific facts exist in a case. We offer an aggressive defense strategy that is focused on protecting our clients' rights, limiting the severity of the penalties, and achieving the best possible outcome.
  • Juvenile and College-Age Criminal Charges: When a juvenile is charged with a criminal offense, it is important to take immediate steps to protect his or her future. We try very hard to resolve the case without a permanent conviction being placed on your record. Our law office is conveniently located next to Colorado State University and the Larimer County Justice Center.
  • Theft, Criminal Mischief and Trespassing: Theft, Criminal Mischief, and Trespassing are often charged together. A conviction for any one of these offenses can result in Serious Penalties and often payment of restitution is required.
  • Traffic Offenses: We help resolve tickets for Reckless Driving, Careless Driving, failure to report an accident, failure to yield right-of-way, Driving Under Revocation and other moving violations.
