Denver internet crime attorneyColorado takes an aggressive approach to crimes involving the Internet, smartphones, or computers. Otherwise small-scale charges are sometimes ramped up to serious offenses simply because somebody’s computer was involved.

If you have been charged with a cyber crime in Colorado (that is, any crime allegedly committed over the Internet or while using any computing device), you need a legal advocate who has an in-depth understanding of Colorado cyber crime, which is an especially complex area of criminal law.

The truth is that ordinary people make innocent mistakes online every day. Computers are complicated and confusing, and the Internet can prey on vulnerability or naiveté in even the best of people.

Too often, prosecutors and police try to target someone’s simple slip of judgment, an accident, or a misunderstanding and turn it into a major crime, using Colorado’s aggressive statutes to escalate the charges.

Wolf Law understands how frightening, embarrassing, and unfair these charges can be. As experienced Denver cyber crime lawyers, we keep our fingers on the pulse of today’s popular and emerging technologies. We can provide an aggressive and effective legal defense for those who may be facing serious penalty.

Internet crimes in Colorado often carry lengthy prison sentences, including life in prison for some crimes. Sexual allegations also present the possibility that the accused could end up on a sex offender registry with lifelong consequences.

Regardless of the nature of your charges, if you have been accused of an Internet or computer crime in Colorado, your future and freedom are at stake.

Even if wrongfully accused, attempting to handle these charges by yourself could cost your quality of life. Tackling serious criminal charges without a lawyer’s help is a grave mistake.

Indeed, hiring an experienced Denver cyber crime lawyer may be the most important thing you’ll ever do. These cases are complex, and the stakes are high. The right attorney can make all the difference.

You don’t need to suffer harsher penalties than you deserve. Let Wolf Law come to your defense. We will fight tirelessly to minimize the potential penalties in your case and safeguard your good name.

Understanding Colorado Cyber Crime

Technology is extremely complicated, and so too are the criminal statutes surrounding it. The United States’ fundamental criminal laws were established hundreds of years ago, long before anyone had imagined the Internet or a cell phone.

In recent years, courts and legislatures have attempted to adapt these very old laws to fit modern times, often creating confusion or chaos along the way. Additionally, new laws treat computer crimes as inherently more dangerous than similar crimes that don’t involve modern technology. Accordingly, the punishments don’t always fit the crime.

Nevertheless, prosecutors and police tend to pursue these charges aggressively. By working with a Denver attorney for Internet crimes, you can stand up against the unfair and unjustified application of notoriously tough laws.

The Top 5 Cyber Crimes

Prosecutors pursue many kinds of computer crimes in Colorado, as well as at the federal level. Some charges are more common than others, though any can be extremely serious.

The following Top 5 Cyber Crimes list reflects the charges that police departments most often bring against people using the Internet on their smartphones or computers:

  • Online Fraud (including phishing, phony transactions, and identity theft)
  • Piracy of Intellectual Property (including software, movies, music, etc.)
  • Hacking / Cyber Espionage
  • Sex Crimes (including prostitution, solicitation, and child pornography)
  • Drug trafficking

Other Common Types of Cyber Crime

In today’s increasingly digital world, almost any crime might carry a cyber allegation. In addition to the Top 5 Cyber Crimes outlined above, other common types of cyber crime include:

  • Electronic harassment
  • Stalking / Cyberstalking
  • Distribution of malware or viruses
  • Online scams
  • Communication of threats
  • Promotion or distribution of obscene materials
  • Harboring obscene materials
  • Contributing to the delinquency of a minor
  • Engaging in sexual activity with a minor (or attempting to do so)
  • Blackmail
  • Extortion
  • Intentionally accessing someone’s email account or other private accounts without permission
  • Gambling
  • Sports betting
  • Accessing a service without paying for it
  • Failure to deliver an item someone purchased from you online
  • Purchasing illegal items / contraband
  • Aiding terrorism
  • Conspiracy charges
  • Unlawful email activity, which may include something as seemingly simple as sending too many commercial emails or failing to ensure the absolute accuracy of an email header

The foregoing is not a comprehensive list of computer crimes at the state or federal level. Remember that cyber charges and penalties may accompany any crime that is alleged to have involved commission via Internet.

A Lawyer Who Understands Technology

Knowing the law is essential in these cases, but your lawyer also needs to thoroughly understand the relevant technologies. Even the most competent attorney can’t effectively defend against a cyber charge if he or she doesn’t understand the complexities of the technologies involved.

You need a lawyer who is ready and prepared to handle allegations involving:

  • Chat rooms
  • Instant Messenger
  • Text messages / iMessage
  • Private / Direct Messages
  • Dropbox
  • File sharing
  • Alternative messaging or texting applications
  • Skype / Videoconferencing
  • Phone calls, including digital phone calls
  • Webcams and video-sharing or Internet broadcasting
  • Online streaming
  • Uploads and downloads
  • Social media (including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Kik, Tumblr, etc.)
  • Smartphone applications
  • Email / Email marketing
  • Proxy servers
  • FTP
  • Edge, 3G, 4G, LTE, and other cellular data networks
  • Photo-sharing platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, etc.
  • Ecommerce
  • Mac, Windows, Lenux, iOS, Android, BlackBerry, and other operating systems

The attorneys at Wolf Law understand these technologies and many more. Don’t make the mistake of trusting your life in the hands of someone who promises they’ll “figure it out.” Hire an attorney who’s already figured it out.

Amazing Results

I worked with Jeffrey on my first DUI case. I had a high BAC but instead of focusing on that, he had me focus on the things I could do before court to prepare. I did my part and he did too. 2/3 charges dropped, 1 largely reduced which prevented any jail time. I’m so thankful, highly recommend Wolf Law.

Here’s a Lawyer You can Trust

I found myself threatened with life-changing accusations, and Jeff Wolf was there for me. Kept me up to date every step of the way and really helped relieve the stress of going through something so awful. 100 percent worth every penny.

Representation by Jeff Wolf

Counselor Wolf was very professional, and each time we met to discuss my case he was patient and explained what we could expect and what might happen through each step in my proceedings. Counselor Wolf presented himself as very knowledgeable, confident and professional throughout our dealings in this matter. Thank you Jeff, I appreciate your attention to detail and adept representation.

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!

Wolf Fought Hard and I Owe Him for All He Did

I am writing this letter to show how much I appreciate Mr. Jeff Wolf for representing me in my DUI case. When I first visited Mr. Wolf I had all these questions of what is going to happen in the case and to myself. I did have a prior DUI in another state so this was new to me.

I received my DUI in April and finished my court in September. During this time Mr. Wolf had an open door policy if you wanted to visit or maybe answer any questions that I may have had. His personal attention to my case made me feel at ease at all my court appearances.

Mr. Wolf guided me through all the steps that were taking place around my case and all his advice paid off when the day came for my sentencing. Actually, the judge was impressed with all the steps I was doing to remedy my terrible mistake. Mr. Wolf fought hard for me and I owe him for all that he did for my family and myself. I can honestly say that I have found a gentleman that I would recommend to another or help my family with any issues.

— Brian G.

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!

Great Attorney

I contacted Mr. Wolf through a reference from a separate out-of-county attorney’s office. I was very pleased with his professional attitude and staff, but mostly the results he was able to achieve for my case. I would definitely recommend Jeff and hire him again if I ever need to.

A Man of Passionate Action!

Colorado Law had recently passed a law, that would help me in the messy situation I was in. I knew immediately I had to find a lawyer to discuss the situation and the circumstances surrounding the process, and eligibility requirements for my specific case. I have to admit, I was very nervous reaching out to any lawyers who could help me.

So I did my research to the best of my ability, and having questions to ask to confirm I was making the right choice in a lawyer. A friend of mine who had previously worked with Mr. Wolf, had strongly recommended that I contact him. I am very grateful that I had! He was very respectful, and had a obvious passion to help me, asking specific questions surrounding my situation so that we can both deal with the issue at hand. Talking me through the processes and possible outcomes, straight forward. No sugar coating, which is nice because I value honesty.

Throughout the whole process, I was comfortable, and very trusting, as questions were answered accurately and after I tried contacting him with new questions or comments, he would return my call or email within 24 Hours! That showed me that he cared and was on top of his workload.

Nonetheless, the outcome of my case worked really well for me, and was a success. And for that, I want to show my gratitude.

Thank You Mr. Wolf for being on my side! I strongly recommend to anyone looking for a well competent lawyer, to contact Jeffrey Wolf at Wolf Law!

Look No Further – Jeff is the Best

I was falsely accused of a crime with serious consequences, was very depressed and got even more depressed and frustrated as I was interviewing attorneys to defend me. They had a broad spectrum of approaches and some were ready to head to trial immediately as it seemed they were primarily interested in battles and my money rather than my best interests. The first one was extremely arrogant and rushed to get me off the phone. My court appearance date was approaching and I was ready to give up when I came across Jeffrey’s website. I read he had once also been falsely accused which motivated him to become an attorney. After further reading, his philosophy appealed to me so I set up a free session.

I met with Jeffrey and told him what happened. He explained the alleged crime and potential consequences and then spoke about himself and his approach. I spent more time than the “free time” allocated but was never rushed. He listened, believed me and was really genuine as I had not witnessed before with other attorneys.

By the time we finished talking, I felt respected and not disrespected as I found out with this accusation, you are guilty until proven innocent from most everyone’s perspective. I hired Jeff on the spot and when I left his office, I felt this big burden lifted off my shoulders as I knew I could trust him to do his best for me. I was finally able to sleep that night and after several weeks able to put this out of my mind as being the constant main focus.

If you are seeking a very knowledgeable, trustworthy, caring, honest and respectful attorney, Jeffrey fits the bill. He is a great listener and never rushed me even with a flat fee rate. He has a good rapport with the Court who also respectfully listens to him. He is well spoken in the courtroom. I have seen him in several cases reaching very good settlements for his clients. On my case, he provided me his opinion with his rationale as to how I should proceed but allowed me to then make a decision as to go to trial or take a plea bargain. He would fully support my decision either way. Jeff is very good in providing the pros and cons, risks, and potential scenarios that may play out. My case will be dismissed shortly and record sealed as a result of Jeff’s hard work, negotiations, poking holes in the accuser’s story pre-trial, and dedication to my satisfactory case resolution. If you want the best, look no further as you have found him. Thank you Jeff!
