If you’re a victim of domestic violence or harassment by an intimate partner and are afraid, the first thing you want to do is get free of that environment. A civil protection order makes contact by your harasser a criminal offense. A Colorado criminal law attorney can help you get the protection you need to move on with your life.
On the other hand, if you’ve been accused of domestic violence by an intimate partner and the police have been involved, you could quickly wind up in jail and with a restraining order prohibiting contact with your intimate partner. Don’t try to dispute the charges on your own. Let a criminal law attorney advocate for you. Serving Denver, Lakewood, Aurora, and Boulder, Colorado, the highly-rated Baumgartner Law will help you through this challenging situation.
Drug Crimes Defense
If you’ve been accused of possessing, selling or manufacturing illegal drugs in Colorado, you could be charged with a felony and sentenced to time in prison or thousands of dollars in fines. Even if you were caught with just over an ounce of marijuana, you could be charged with a misdemeanor which will go on your record. Illegal drugs in Colorado are arranged in schedules. Schedule 1 drugs have the highest penalties, and Schedule 5 drugs have the lowest, as they are the least dangerous. Additionally, in Colorado, sentencing for drug crimes can sometimes be diverted to mandatory drug treatment instead of prison. The attorney at Baumgartner Law understands all drug laws and can help you avoid jail time.
DUI Charges Defense
If you drive a vehicle in the state of Colorado, you have already legally consented to have your breath, blood, or urine tested for alcohol or drugs that may impair your ability to drive safely. Having a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or higher is considered driving under the influence (DUI), and even for your first offense, you can be sentenced to a year in jail or a $1,000 fine. If you refuse to take the test for alcohol, your drivers’ license is automatically revoked for one full year. With repeated offenses, you may be sentenced to more jail time, have higher fines, and be required to have an interlock ignition device that checks your breath for alcohol before you can even start your car. When charges like this go on your record, they stay there forever. Our DUI defense attorney at Baumgartner Law can work toward a plea bargain for you to reduce your charges and give you the chance to get back on the road and improve your driving habits.

Why choose Baumgartner Law, LLC?
A thorough investigation is critical in every case. A busy attorney may be tempted not to look carefully into a case if it is obvious it is a “loser” anyway. THIS IS A MISTAKE. Birk Baumgartner walks the scene of every case, with the client- whether it’s a DUI or a multi million-dollar civil case. Many cases have been won just like this, engaging the clients of the facts of the case that only the client knows.
The goal in every criminal case is to get the charges dismissed, and that is exactly the result that Baumgartner Law has been able to achieve for many clients. Your criminal defense attorney must know the system well, including the Judge presiding over your case, the District Attorney who will be prosecuting you, and the best way to present your case to a jury.
Not every case can be dismissed before trial; but when it can’t be, you must have a criminal defense attorney who can take your case to trial and win.
Even if you choose to resolve your case with a plea agreement, it’s the threat posed by a thorough criminal defense attorney that drives the prosecutor to “deal” the case.
Every criminal charge can be successfully defended, even if it can’t be won at trial. Please call my office today, at (303) 529-3476, if you have been charged with or are being investigated for a crime. I never charge for consultations. If I don’t have the expertise for your case, together we will find the lawyer who does.
