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.

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.

Winning the Case

Colleen Kelley came through for me when I thought all else was lost. Colleen worked diligently and kept up the fight; she was able to get the job done, and I’m so appreciative for her work.

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!

I Will Definitely Hire Mr. Wolf Again

I turned to Wolf Law for help after a small bumper ding in a Starbucks parking lot escalated once the Denver PD was involved. Jeff expertly stepped in to keep the matter from getting any more complex, including speaking with a Denver Police Officer who seemed intent on imposing the most severe charges possible. Jeff continued his zealous representation of my case in Traffic Court where he worked out a reduction in the ticket with the Denver City Attorney and also eloquently explained the situation and the facts at hand to the judge, resulting in a reduction in the fine. Wolf Law exceeded my expectations on this case and managed to keep me calm about the severity of the charges throughout the process. I would highly recommend Wolf Law to anyone and everyone, and if I ever have the need, I will definitely hire Mr. Wolf again.

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.

APPRECIATION

I would like to place on record the immense appreciation for Ms Colleen Kelly, Partner at Wolf Law LCC. I had an opportunity as a Solicitor to interact with her on behalf of one of my clients in a DV Matter. Her professionalism and knowledge of law is absolutely outstanding. She is extremely honest and straightforward in her legal advice. She always keeps the interest of the client a priority and safe guards the interest of the client at all times. She is an asset to the legal team and adds value with her expertise and knowledge.

— Nirvikar Singh, Advocate Supreme Court of India

Colleen is one of the best!! Goes Above and Beyond

I had to use legal services regarding a personal matter and I contacted 3 other lawyers. Colleen was the only one who took time to understand the issue but only explain legally how it can be addressed.

Also, I was surprised when she got me the desired result but she kept moving forward to make sure I had material for a potential criminal case. It shows that she cares and understands legal strategies.

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.

Wow

Unfortunately, I have required an attorney more than a few times. That said, Jeff is the most intelligent, competent, compassionate, committed, aggressive representation to be found, without a doubt. Facing a felony DUI, no proof of insurance, careless driving and cruelty to animals (my dog gets more love than most people in the world), followed by two DURs (driving under revocation), I pretty much felt I was screwed. After hiring and firing two attorneys, I called Jeff. Note: Do your research before you waste money, and do whatever it takes to get the money for proper representation. I met with Jeff based on his peer reviews, client reviews, education and experience; all of them positive and 100 percent accurate. Twenty minutes into the consultation, all my built-up stress and anxiety had been significantly reduced. I thought my driving privileges were over for a while. Jeff showed me what I needed to do to get a restricted license, which I was able to do within a few days. Following that he made two DURs, jail time offenses, turn into one zero-point traffic violation. Then, one year to the date of my run-in with the law, Jeff and I went to trial. The no insurance charge was dropped. I was insured. The cruelty to animals charge was dropped after the first day of trial. On the second day, I was found not guilty of DUI, DWAI and careless driving. The time, effort and determination Jeff put in was clear, and his strategies and trial skills were clearly superb. No better counsel can be found in my opinion.
