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.

My Heart Was Ripped Out, Wolf Law Showed Compassion

In early March, my heart was seemingly ripped out. I was driving into town with my two children, 5 and 2, in extremely inclimate weather conditions when my car hit a patch of ice and I lost control of my vehicle. It was a horrific accident and I was the only survivor in my vehicle. As if this wasn’t the worst thing that could have ever happened, I was charged with careless driving resulting in death, two counts. I was referred to Mr. Wolf by four separate law offices, as well as the BAR Association. The District Attorney’s office attempted to raise my charges to much more serious felony charges that could have carried very harsh sentences. Mr. Wolf was able to maintain the original charges and speak compassion and mercy to the the judge, leaving me facing only community service and a short probation with minimal associated probation costs. I would recommend his services to anybody and everybody. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable, but he is passionate about his work, while showing the utmost compassion and respect for his clients’ situation.

Ms. Kelly was a professional rock for us!

We found ourselves in an unimaginable situation with criminal charges pressed against my husband relating to a firearm. We were both petrified. Especially with the gun climate we find ourselves in. Neither of us had ever been in trouble with the law and after a terrible accident, we found just that. Ms. Kelly is extremely professional and knowledgeable of the legal system. She took the time to explain everything to us and prepare us for what would follow.

We are happy with the outcome of the case and would highly recommend Ms. Kelly to anyone who may find themselves in our situation.

Highly Recommend Wolf Law for DUI Cases

I hired Jeff Wolf to represent me for a DUI and accident involving damages. While I knew I was 100 percent in the wrong, Jeff never once made me feel like a terrible person for making a mistake. He quickly responded to emails and always called me back quickly when I had questions (I had a lot of questions). I’ve never been in trouble with the law before, and Jeff was patient in explaining everything thoroughly to me throughout the entire process, and was also able to get my sentence reduced. I recommend him to anyone going through a similar situation.

— Emily

Complete Satisfaction

Jeff took on 2 cases for me with complete success. He is extremely sharp and confident. Jeff really gets to know his clients and is very sympathetic to their needs.
The relationships he has with prosecutors and the judges was pure respect. When he spoke he had the ears of the courtroom. He speaks very eloquent and exudes confidence that translates into the result I was looking for, “Case Dismissed.”

I highly recommend his services. If you are need of his services you will get more than what you pay for.

I Couldn’t Have Asked for a Better Lawyer

Until the night of my DUI, I had never been in trouble before so one could only imagine how scared I was. Facing a DUI with a possible felony/assault charge, I honestly wasn’t sure how I was going to get through it all. I happened to find Jeffrey Wolf through another lawyer. After meeting with him in person, I knew immediately that he was going to help me. I was a complete wreck from day 1 and yet he made me feel at ease with every meeting, phone call and court appearance.

One of the traits I appreciated most was his honesty. Mr. Wolf told me straight up from the beginning what could happen and what I was facing but reassured me that he would do everything he could to get me through it with the best outcome. Having him there with me through this process and through every court appearance with him by my side made it easier to handle and I am so grateful to have worked with him. At the end of it all, I was able to get probation with a deferred judgment on my case. I would absolutely refer Mr. Wolf to any of my friends and/or family!
