Colorado Springs Criminal Defense Lawyers
Facing criminal charges, regardless of the alleged crime or your criminal history, can completely disrupt your life. You may have to miss work while being held in custody, pay steep fines, or lose privileges, such as your driver's license. The results of a conviction can be life-changing if you are sentenced to jail.
That's why you need an experienced and aggressive attorney at your side from the very beginning to protect your rights and help you fight for the best possible outcome. Contact a Colorado Springs criminal defense attorney at The Bussey Law Firm, P.C. for a free consultation to learn more about how we may be able to protect you against unlawful prosecution.
If you didn’t commit a crime it should be easy to prove your innocence. Unfortunately, the justice system doesn’t always work that way. The prosecution will throw everything they can at you, and they do not care if it ruins your reputation, relationships, or life. You need an experienced criminal defense attorney and you need one the moment you are arrested.
A defendant with an attorney present at their very first court appearance is 2.5 times more likely to be released on bail. They are also 4.5 times more likely to have that bail be significantly lowered. Most importantly, the defendant’s chances of serving less to no jail time can skyrocket.
Attorneys also bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and connections. A good attorney will start working your case immediately, rather than waiting until trial. They’ll interview witnesses, compile evidence, and figure out what the best defense will be. None of which you can do from jail.
It’s unlikely that you’ll know your way around a courtroom or the minutiae of criminal law. That’s okay, it isn’t your job to know. A skilled criminal defense attorney will know it for you and help get you the best possible outcome for your case.
If you have been arrested, you may feel overwhelmed and intimidated, especially if you have been interviewed or interrogated by police. Unfortunately, even false accusations can lead to a conviction if the accused does not take action as soon as possible.
