DUI and DWAI Charges in Colorado: How a Denver Defense Attorney Can Help

A charge of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) isn’t the end of your story. It’s only the beginning. These charges don’t necessarily reflect the truth, and a Denver defense attorney may be able to effectively challenge them on a number of key grounds.

denver dui lawyerUnfortunately, these cases have grown increasingly scientifically sophisticated in recent years. More than ever, defendants face an uphill battle in court — not to mention harsher penalties thanks to tougher sentencing guidelines in Colorado.

But police officers, breath test analysts, eyewitnesses, and even breathalyzer machines themselves make mistakes… often, in fact. You don’t deserve to pay the price for those mistakes. The burden of proof is on the government, not you. Wolf Law can ensure that the prosecutor and the police are held accountable to the very highest standard: proof beyond a reasonable doubt.

If your DUI or DWAI charge alleges consumption of drugs rather than alcohol, the government will have an even harder time making its case, given that they won’t have breathalyzer results to rely on.

Blood tests, too, are known to produce unreliable or inconclusive results. An experienced attorney can scrutinize and challenge those results to make sure that they aren’t used against you unfairly.

A Denver DUI lawyer knows what to look for when defending the accused in Colorado. That’s important because your criminal defense really begins from the moment you first encounter the police while on the road. The lawyers at Wolf Law will carefully examine those first encounters, the police report, drug test results, breathalyzer results, eyewitness reports, and all the other facts and circumstances of your case to mount a compelling and persuasive defense.

A Second Line of Defense: DUI and the DMV

DUI and DWAI charges in Colorado aren’t resolved in court alone. You also need an attorney who can fight for your privilege at the DMV, where your driving privileges are at stake.

Most people depend on their cars to live their lives, whether it’s going to work or simply enjoying the freedom of the open road. Don’t risk having that taken away.

When you’re charged with a DUI or DWAI in Colorado, you have to act fast. Once you receive a Notice of Revocation, you only have seven days to request a hearing. If you fail to respond within that timeframe, you’ll automatically lose your right to drive.

You need a Denver DUI lawyer who can fight on both fronts — the courthouse and the DMV — without losing focus on either. You deserve an attorney who will act fast to protect your rights. You can count on Wolf Law.

Here is what a lot of lawyers don’t want to tell you. Your best defense in a DUI case starts with you. It starts when you’re pulled over by the police; it starts right on the roadside. Some things you need to understand, you do not have to give them statements about whether you have been drinking or not, you do not have to take the roadside maneuver test when they ask you to step out of the car. You also do not have to blow into a portable breath test on the side of the road. All of those things are voluntary whether the officer tells you they are, or not. You have a right to remain silent; you have a right to refuse their testing. Don’t get fooled by the officers. Additionally, it is important to understand, that if you have been charged with a DUI. A clock that is very important to your livelihood and your life is already ticking. There is a 7 day window; from the date you were charged with a DUI until you can request a hearing on your driver’s license. That is important to remember, it is different if it is a blood test, because your blood results aren’t known yet so your clock is not ticking, but if you have taken a breath test, seven days from the date of your arrest or charge until you can request a hearing on your license. If you miss that deadline, you will have your license automatically suspended. It’s also important to understand that DUI cases are scientific animals, they are dealt with at a very technical level. You need an attorney who can understand how to read the print outs, know what’s going on with the machines, know what’s going on with the technicians and know if there are mistakes being made in your case that you can take advantage of. It is also important to know that DUI’s come with a very specific set of consequences. If convicted of a DUI you will be required to take mandatory classes. You will also be required to take a MADD victim impact panel. Something else that they will require you to do, is to take community service hours. Additionally, your insurance premiums will go up. DUI cases can affect your entire life, that’s something that I understand, that is something I know. I have handled hundreds of DUI cases, I know that while they may seem like a small case to some attorneys, to you this is the most important thing that has happened in your life, and probably the biggest brush you will ever have with the courts. I understand; I respect it. When clients trust me to handle their cases, I honor that by working very hard to make no stone is left unturned and to make sure you understand exactly what is happening each step of the way.

Successful and Very Pleased

My name is Matt and I was ordered to register as a sex offender for 10 years. I ended up registering for 15 because the courts make it near impossible to get off the list. I tried on my own more than once and the paperwork for one county alone is enough to discourage someone, let alone four counties. I felt hopeless.

I decided to call Wolf Law and get an estimate. I ended up meeting with Colleen Kelley and she was very helpful. Told me the price, which was very reasonable, and I paid to get started. She warned me that it can take up to a year to get a court date and she was right. For me it took nine months, but when the time came, she represented me well and I finally got off the registry.

Life is so much more comfortable now and less embarrassing. The S.O. title is one of the worst badges of shame one can wear and thanks to Colleen Kelley and Wolf Law I no longer carry that weight. I’m thrilled to feel like a normal guy again.

Fantastic Attorney, Thorough and Knowledgeable

When I had charges pending against me, I had a free consultation with many attorneys and ultimately hired Jeff wolf as my formal representation. Most of the attorneys’ capabilities were relatively equal, but what stuck out with Jeff was his ethics and personal investment in my outcome.

From the beginning he tried to get a thorough sense of who I was in society and represent that to the judge for sentencing. In court he pleaded my case and balanced remorse for the action with any positive attributes to gain a favorable outcome. He is well spoken and respected in court.

I liked that his payment model worked through stages that he “earned” along the way. I had a clear understanding of what to expect from him, from the court, and the most likely requirements of my sentence. And when I didn’t understand or had additional questions on one part (and I had many) he took the time to explain and discuss the options and his recommendation with me.

He had a thorough knowledge of the system and its players as well as knowledge on unusual factors related to my specific case, and he made well-thought-out recommendations with reasoning but ultimately let me make the final decision.

The result of my case was quite favorable thanks to Jeff. Great lawyer, highly recommend.

Outstanding Law Firm

Wolf Law was very helpful in fulfilling my personal needs. Colleen Kelley knew how to approach my case and made me feel better about my results in the bargain. I would recommend her to anyone with criminal trouble; she is an amazing lawyer.

The Best Lawyer I’ve Ever Come Across

I got my first DUI in April when I fell asleep in my car because I couldn’t get inside my house. I knew I needed a lawyer to help me fight the case but I was really hesitant on who I wanted to hire. I came across Jeffrey Wolf and I couldn’t be any happier that I chose him to represent me. Jeffrey is not only very professional but he can also relate to you on a personal level. Since it was my first offense I had no idea what to expect or what I was doing. He guided me through the whole process and I was very pleased with the results. He was able to convince the Judge to let me off with 6 months of unsupervised probation and level 1 education classes. Jeffrey is very loyal and a wonderful lawyer, definitely hiring him again if need be.

My Son Was in Trouble, Jeff Wolf was His Advocate

When my son got in trouble, I was referred to Jeff Wolf by a friend. He was immediately responsive, calling me back within an hour. We set up a meeting for a couple of days later with no obligation, and when we met he helped us understand the many aspects of my son’s case. We retained him and were grateful for his obvious comfort with the legal system and ability to help us navigate it. Throughout, he advocated for my son but also was stern with him, very clearly communicating the severity of his situation. We ended up with a deferred sentence and are so glad we had Mr. Wolf’s help. He is very reliable and accessible; it was reassuring to know we had him in our court.

Highly Recommended

First of all, I would like to thank Colleen Kelley and all the staff at Wolf Law for helping me greatly with my legal matters. I called and was able to get consulted that same day, and the prices are very manageable. Colleen did an awesome job and took her time reviewing all the evidence and negotiating with the DA. In my first case she was able to get the charges completely dismissed, which was very impressive. I had a second case where she got me a deferred judgment deal, which was great considering the charges pending. I am very pleased with her efforts and time spent working on my case. Again, I would highly recommend Wolf Law, giving them 5/5 stars!

I Trust My Future with Jeffery A. Wolf

My experience was very hard like many others facing any criminal charges against them. Jeffery A. Wolf was a very compassionate, caring individual that was there to help me through the entire court process. He is very knowledgeable about criminal law and was very helpful, getting my family and me through the whole criminal process. He fought for me in a time I needed someone the most, ensuring me that he was there for me and out to get the best results as possible from the court system. What an outstanding man to fight for the truth and be there for anyone with criminal charges, explaining the whole process very methodically and being pin point with all the facts. I was very confident in his experiences and knowledge that I would only trust my future with Jeffery A. Wolf. I had a great experience with him, allowing me to have the life I am here to live.

Jeff Wolf was Well Worth the Investment

When you get charged with a crime it is tough to deal with, mostly because you are embarrassed and disappointed with yourself for what you have done. I was charged with theft and was very worried about what type of impact that would have on my business professional career when applying for jobs. I contacted a few lawyers but knew that Jeff was the right direction to take. He made me feel more at ease knowing that people make mistakes and that this would not effect my whole life. He was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had.

During my time with Jeff he made me feel very comfortable and I knew going into everything what to expect, what to say, and how to present myself. Whether you hire a lawyer or not is your own decision. But to me what Jeff was able to provide was well worth it. I literally told him my story, how I felt and what type of outcome I was looking for on the first day. Besides showing up with him to court he did everything else and took care of everything. We were sentenced to the verdict that we were looking for and now I can move forward and put this case behind me. Thanks for all your help Jeff it was much appreciated.

The Best!

Jeff is very professional, knowledgeable, and as good of a lawyer as there is. I had a restraining order full of false allegations, and Jeff got everything dismissed. Even though it was a restraining order, Jeff treated my case as important as any other case. Thanks, Jeff!
