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.

Working with Mr. Wolf

I cannot speak high enough of Mr. Jeffrey Wolf! He was very pleasant to work with and explained each step of the journey from start to the final video teleconference with the judge. He negotiated a much lower sentence with the DA from DUI to DWAI. He reiterated several points that were then considered by the judge and taken into account in deciding my sentence. He was always prompt in any communications and worked tirelessly on my case to get a very favorable outcome for me. I would whole-heartedly recommend Mr. Wolf as you can be ensured it felt like I was an individual that truly mattered to him and his practice. From the very first phone call, I had nothing but respect for him and felt I was in good hands, that he then proved! You can’t go wrong with Mr. Jeffrey Wolf!

Wolf Law Saved My Career

I’m a college student in a highly prestigious nursing school. After a night of drinking, my now ex-girlfriend and I got into a heated argument that landed me with domestic violence charges. I thought my career was over and the tens of thousands of dollars I spent on multiple years of school were all for nothing. However, Mr. Wolf was able to get two of my three charges dismissed altogether (one of them being the most serious) without us even walking into the courtroom. When we got to court, he was able to get me a deferred sentence–the best possible scenario. All in all, Wolf Law is hands-down the best in the Denver area. They are the reason I can still pursue my career goals.
