Q: If a police officer or detective has contacted me but I haven’t been charged with a crime, is there anything a lawyer can do for me?
A: YES. Wolf Law offers a variety of services for someone who hasn’t yet been charged with, but is clearly under investigation for a crime. Never talk to the police without speaking to Wolf Law first! Many attorneys will tell you to call back once there are charges filed. This is a mistake. Many times a case can be stopped before it even starts. If this isn’t possible, many issues can still be dealt with, such as whether you will be arrested or issued a summons or turn yourself in. In short, never speak to the police without talking to a lawyer first.
Q: Why would anyone hire an attorney for a traffic ticket they can mail in for a reduced fine and points?
A: An attorney can sometimes get a better result than the mail-in offer for your traffic ticket. Even if this is not the case, a skilled attorney will still be able to protect both your driving privilege and your pocketbook while in court on a ticket. If you hire Wolf Law, you don’t have to go to court, they can go for you. While there, they can insure that no mistakes are made when your ticket is entered into the system, thus ensuring you don’t end up with more points, a heftier fine or sometimes the wrong offense on your motor vehicle record (which is what your car insurance company picks up when determining your premium rates). Our attorneys may also be able to help you if you’ve been labeled a habitual traffic offender (HTO).
Q: Can Wolf Law guarantee an outcome on my case?
A: No. It would unethical for any attorney to do so. Many attorneys make promises that sometimes they cannot keep. This isn’t because they are bad attorneys or bad people, it’s because on initial contact with a client many things are unknown. Most times the full facts of the case aren’t known until an attorney is hired and gets the full discovery from the District Attorney. Additionally, criminal courtrooms in Colorado are not computers that spit out results; they are human systems. They are human systems with human beings making decisions on a case-by-case basis. At your initial consultation, Wolf Law can give you a better idea of what you are facing and what battles are ahead, but a specific outcome cannot be guaranteed and never should be.
Q: I just got charged with a DUI. What should I do next?
A: First and foremost, it’s a good idea to consult with a knowledgeable DUI lawyer. Then, with the help of an attorney or on your own, you have to get to the Department of Revenue’s Department of Motor Vehicle Hearing Division. In many cases you only have seven days to request a hearing on your license, or you automatically lose it. DUIs are complex, scientific cases, and the DUI trial attorneys at Wolf Law can help diagnose your case and help you understand the process throughout, as well as fight every step of the way to get you the best outcome possible in your case.
Q: I have been convicted of a crime and am having trouble getting a job. Can anything be done?
A: In some cases, yes. There are circumstances where a case can be sealed or expunged, but not every case is eligible for it. Consult with Wolf Law and find out if your case qualifies. At the very least, get the answers you need to be able to move forward with job applications and the like in the future.
