Wide Range of Criminal Defense Practice Areas

Denver Assault Lawyer

Assault is typically a misdemeanor offense, but it can be elevated to a felony under certain circumstances (for example, if the defendant allegedly had a weapon). Depending on the circumstances of your case, a skilled defense attorney may be able to show that you acted in self-defense and without criminal intent, or that your assault charge should be reduced to a lesser charge. ...Read more

Denver Criminal Record Sealing Lawyer

Did you know that you will have a criminal record merely for being charged – or even arrested? Many people believe that if they avoid getting convicted, everything is “reset” and it’s like the arrest never happened, but that is definitely not the case. It may not seem like a big deal, but this stain on your record can hurt your chances at getting a good job, securing loans, and even finding housing. If you don’t want your past impairing your future, you need to look into criminal record sealing. ...Read more

South Denver Domestic Violence Attorney

Colorado takes domestic violence very seriously, and it is possible to be arrested on a domestic violence charge even if you never physically harmed someone with whom you currently have or formerly had an intimate relationship. Consequences for a conviction may include a prison sentence, fines, mandatory counseling, and a firearm ban, so you will need to work with a skilled defense attorney to give yourself the best chance of avoiding life-altering penalties. ...Read more

South Denver Drug Lawyer

Recreational marijuana may be legal in Colorado now, but it is still illegal to distribute or possess controlled substances such as cocaine or heroin. If you are charged with any kind of drug crime, contact Kevin R. Cahill immediately. If the charge is for the possession of a small amount of a controlled substance, you may be able to receive an alternative sentence that involves treatment instead of incarceration. ...Read more

South Denver DUI-DWAI Attorney

You can be charged with a DUI (driving under the influence) if you are caught driving with a BAC level of .08 or if your ability to drive was impaired by drugs, and you can be charged with a DWAI (driving while ability impaired) if a police officer determines that your ability to drive was impacted to even a slight degree by drugs or alcohol. It is important to note that the breath tests commonly used by the Colorado police are not always accurate, and that sobriety tests may be administered incorrectly. In some cases, Kevin Cahill may be able to have the evidence against you thrown out because it was not legally obtained (i.e. the arresting officer did not have probable cause to pull you over in the first place). ...Read more

Denver Felony Lawyer

There are no “good” criminal charges, but felonies certainly qualify as “bad” ones. Unlike misdemeanors and petty offenses, all felony convictions come with the promise of jail time in addition to numerous other serious punishments. Never take a felony charge lightly. The second that you learn you are being charged with a felony of any kind, make sure that you get in touch with a Colorado criminal lawyer so that they can start crafting your defense. The earlier you start, the better your chances of getting your charged reduced or even dropped altogether. ...Read more

Denver Fraud Lawyer

There are so many different kinds of fraud out there that the term has lost meaning and become confusing to the vast majority of people. Simply put, fraud occurs when a person or organization provides untrue information about something to another and that individual or organization believes the information, acts on it, and suffers a loss due to the deception. Depending on the type of fraud you are charged with, you may be facing a misdemeanor or a felony, and your charges might be at the state or federal level. Whatever your fraud charges entail, you must take them seriously and act quickly to protect your future and good name. ...Read more

Denver Juvenile Crimes Lawyer

We used to say things like “kids will be kids” and look past many youthful indiscretions, but it’s a lot harder to grow up in the modern world – and it’s next to impossible to understand our juvenile justice system if you aren’t a professional working in and around it. If your minor child is charged with a crime, you need someone in your corner who understands how this unique area of our justice system works in Colorado and will mount an aggressive defense to protect their rights. ...Read more

Denver Drug Possession Attorney

Recreational marijuana has been legal in our state for a few years now, but that relative leniency hasn’t transferred to other drugs like cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, and so on. Colorado defines possession penalties based both on the type of drug you allegedly had and the amount, and many people are shocked to find themselves in very serious trouble simply because they were holding something that they shouldn’t have been. Don’t take possession charges lying down. Protect your rights and your future with a strong defense. ...Read more

Denver Prostitution Lawyer

There are a number of different crimes associated with prostitution in the Colorado statutes. Unless a child is involved, you’re forcing someone to prostitute themselves, or you are making money off of the prostitution of another, these tend to be charged as misdemeanors or even petty offenses. Even so, many of these are charges that can go on your criminal record as well as containing large fines and other punishments. ...Read more

Denver Protection / Restraining Orders Lawyer

When you hear the term “restraining order,” chances are that you associated with domestic violence or abuse. But while protective and restraining orders are frequently used in those kinds of situations, it’s also possible to be hit by one from any person or entity who can believably argue that they view you as a threat – even a past employer. If you find yourself under a protective order or restraining order, it is vital that you understand the terms or you could end up violating them and unintentionally causing yourself more trouble. An experienced criminal attorney can walk you through the process and make sure you stay within the law. ...Read more

Denver Weapons Charges Attorney

Maybe you carry a weapon on your person to feel safe and made the mistake of taking it somewhere that it wasn’t allowed. Or you used a weapon in a way that seemed perfectly fine to you, but turned out to be illegal. Perhaps you got into a fight with someone and happened to have a weapon on you. All of these things (and more) can constitute weapons charges in Colorado, and oftentimes people may not really understand that they are breaking the law or why they are being charged. One thing you do have to understand, though, is that these kinds of charge are no joke. You need to fight back, and you need a strong defense. ...Read more

Denver Residential Burglary Lawyer

In Colorado, as in other areas of the country, burglary is about permission and intent. You can be convicted of burglary simply for going into a home or building without permission if the opposition can provide compelling evidence that you were intending to commit a crime. The intent is the difference between the much less serious crime of trespassing and burglary, so your goals are either to prove that you had permission to be there or that there’s no evidence of your intention to commit a crime. ...Read more

Denver Robbery Lawyer

When you take something valuable from another by intimidating, threatening, or using physical force, this falls under the definition of robbery in our state.

Denver Theft Lawyer

If you are accused of stealing something that belongs to another in our state, expect to face serious charges and penalties. Even the lowest level of theft – petty theft – is considered a class 2 misdemeanor and carries with it large fines and jail time.
