Denver Misdemeanor Defense Lawyers
A Legal Team with a Track Record of Success

An experienced misdemeanor defense attorney in Denver may be able to help you get the charges dismissed or reduced. The Legal Defense Group provides experienced legal representation to the arrested and accused.
Misdemeanors in Colorado
In general, misdemeanor convictions can result in up to 18 months in jail, misdemeanor probation, and fines of up to $5,000. If you are on probation, you will have certain limitations on your freedom and other requirements, such as not being allowed to own or possess a weapon, payment of restitution, supervision from a probation officer, drug treatment classes, or anger management classes. In addition, crimes that are classified as “extraordinary risk” may carry harsher penalties.
Examples of extraordinary risk misdemeanors include:
- Sexual assault
- Child abuse
- Failure to register as a sex offender
- Unlawful sexual contact
- Assault in the third degree
- Second and subsequent violations of protective orders
The consequences for a conviction depend on the class of the misdemeanor, any past criminal record, and other factors. We can explain the law as it pertains to your situation and help you understand what to expect as your case progresses. We communicate regularly with our clients, so you will have access to your criminal defense lawyer as well as all updates on the status of your case.
Avoiding a Criminal Record
Even minor misdemeanors can result in a criminal record, which could prevent you from obtaining employment or professional licensure in certain fields, stop you from going to college, and affect your life in many other ways. A Denver misdemeanor defense lawyer in our office can evaluate your situation and develop an effective defense strategy for your case.
