Resources for Convicted Felons in Denver

Felonies are crimes of “high seriousness” and typically involve periods of incarceration and punitive fines. Criminal offenders often find adjusting to life after a felony conviction unhospitable and challenging. Even with efforts to improve job training and personal circumstances, Colorado felons regularly find themselves with few options and limited resources.

Felony charges carry far-reaching consequences that impact a person’s ability to acquire the most basic needs: housing, employment, and community support. If you or someone you know is struggling to find work, safe housing, or specialty assistance such as drug rehabilitation, counseling, or psychiatric services, the sources below may help.

NOTE: If you need assistance with housing, jobs or other support services, please contact the agency listed below directly. Wolf Law does not provide these services, and our law firm does not have a relationship with these organizations. The following is intended as an informational resource.

Signs of Domestic Violence

Domestic violence and abuse happens more often than you may think. According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV), 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner every minute in the U.S. Every day, domestic violence hotlines answer 20,000 calls from around the country. This adds up to at least 10 million men and women suffering domestic abuse each year; many more incidents go unreported.

It can be difficult to see the signs of domestic violence. Since education and awareness are instrumental in preventing domestic violence, we’ve compiled a list of domestic violence indicators. Continue reading “Signs of Domestic Violence”


What to Expect After a DUI

No one should ever drive drunk. Unfortunately, alcohol inhibits the decision making process and leads many people to drive drunk anyway.

In Colorado, 28,198 people were arrested for DUI in 2015.

According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), over 300,000 people drive drunk every day. In 2014, there were more than 1.1 million DUI arrests in the United States and about one-third of those drivers were repeat offenders.

In Colorado, 28,198 people were arrested for DUIs in 2015. Though this is a small fraction of our state’s population, it’s not a small number of drunk drivers. This is substantial when you consider the fact that only 1 percent of all drunk drivers are actually arrested.

The best way you can protect yourself from getting a DUI is to drink responsibly and call for a ride. But, if you do make the mistake of driving drunk, here is what to expect if you are charged with DUI. Continue reading “What to Expect After a DUI”


How The New Supreme Court Ruling Affects Your Gun Rights

Domestic violence is a major problem in the United States. As the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence points out, 1 in 3 women will be the victim of some kind of physical violence by an intimate partner during their lives. But it’s not just a problem for women, domestic violence against men is an issue as well.

The Supreme Court closed a gun-law loophole regarding domestic violence convictions.

 

The biggest problem with domestic violence is that many people don’t report it. The most shocking fact about domestic violence is that only 25% of all physical assaults are reported to the police. So, when new legislation that can help prevent incidents of domestic violence comes into effect, it’s a big step forward.

In a historic ruling, the Supreme Court elected to “close a dangerous loophole” in U.S. gun control laws regarding those who have been convicted of domestic violence. Previously, those who had been convicted of felony domestic violence charges were no longer allowed to possess a firearm. With this Supreme Court ruling, that federal prohibition on gun possession is extended to those convicted of misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence.

The Dangers of Hiring a Cheap Defense Lawyer
