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.

Professional, Passionate and Knowledgeable

This was my first experience with the law, and Jeffrey Wolf did a fantastic job of guiding me and my family through this. He was always available to answer any concerns I had, realistic in terms of what we were looking at, and passionate about getting us through this. He truly took my case to heart and was a lifesaver through a trying time. Thanks to him, I still have a chance to succeed in my career and lead a normal life!

Excellent

I had Jeff work on two cases of mine. Very professional and very understanding. Outstanding communication and advice. I would highly recommend Mr. Wolf to anyone seeking legal help.

— Jasen B.

Jeff Wolf Helped Me Keep My Job

Jeff was a terrific advocate while representing me through my DWAI. He was professional. I am convinced that it was his prior trial experience and effective communication skills that secured a much more desirable sentence than I had expected. I am positive that Jeff’s representation made it so that I could keep my job.

— Matt

Recommendation

I would highly recommend the Wolf Law Team for your legal needs. In my case, Colleen handled our legal needs in an expeditious, professional manner. She was very knowledgeable and understanding.

— Gerald W Hardesty

AMAZING LAWYER

Mr. Wolf was recommended to me through my cousin. I was facing a very serious legal matter and Mr. Wolf was amazing. He explained everything to me in detail. He listened to my questions and was very helpful. I am so thankful that he was my lawyer.

— Amy K

Professional and Honest

I was worried about looking for a lawyer because I have never done so before, but Jeff Wolf made it super easy for me and I couldn’t have been more happy with his services. He called me anytime something happened with my case or needed anything from me. He got me out of a 10 day jail sentence which really helped me since I started school this week. Honestly it was nothing but a professional and honest experience.

— Robert A.

Fully and Enthusiastically Recommended

When I was arrested for DUI/careless driving, I was overcome with a profound sense of hopelessness – I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t sleep, and I thought my life (including my career) was ruined. Making the decision to call Mr. Wolf for a consultation was the best decision I could have made. His immediate response set my mind at ease and gave me a the peace of mind that I so desperately needed.

Upon meeting him in person, I was thoroughly impressed by his experience and expertise, but what really struck me was his personable demeanor and genuine interest in helping me. He was very patient in explaining the legal process and made sure I was well prepared for every step of the way.

There is no doubt that his representation and advocacy, as well as the advice he had given me in order to prepare for court, resulted in an outcome that was more positive than I had dared hoped for (a DWAI with license intact and a reduced probation sentence), allowing me to move forward with my life. Mr. Wolf far exceeded my expectations, and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking legal counsel.

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.

— Gil S.

Incredible!

I was extremely fortunate to have Jeff as my lawyer during a difficult time. He made sure I was taken care of and fought for what he knew was right on my behalf. My experience working with Jeff was nothing but great as he helped me get through my case. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and is willing to help out with a smile on his face. Jeff is an AMAZING lawyer and I cannot thank him enough for all the hard work he has done! Thank you Jeff!

Hire A Lawyer You Can Relate To and Trust

I happened to find Jeff through a Google search for a DUI lawyer and I would have to say I really lucked out. I had heard horror stories about attorneys that overcharged their clients and that they would send others to represent them in court. From the initial phone call he helped me understand the process and prepared me for what was ahead. Having never needed a lawyer he was patient and made sure I understood everything before making any decisions. Jeff always made me feel like I was on the same level as him which I really appreciated. Jeff always prepared me for the worst, but in the end with his hard work and suggestions beforehand he managed to get me a pretty good deal. The best advice I could give is to be informed and START EVERYTHING right away. I would also say to hire a lawyer that you can relate to and that you trust. Don’t waste your money on someone that isn’t going to give you the personal attention you deserve. I would gladly recommend Jeff Wolf! He is down to earth and I never felt judged. He gave it to me straight and without hiring him I don’t know where I’d be. Thanks Jeff!
