Many parents believe that representation from a public defender is good enough for their child. This is a misguided and dangerous notion. Public defenders are often overworked, carrying an extremely heavy caseload and new to the legal profession.
It is critical to retain representation from a lawyer who can give your child’s case the attention necessary to mitigate charges and protect your child’s future. At The Foley Law Firm, we offer compassionate consultation and defense that does not back down, even against the toughest odds.
If we can nip the allegations in the bud, get so-called evidence thrown out or even get the case against your child dismissed, we may be able to save you and your child from years of regret and struggle.
Our attorneys handle juvenile crimes in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas in the Pikes Peak region. We are familiar with the sensitivity of these cases. We understand what a juvenile record means for your child’s future and why quick action is necessary. We will do everything in our power to minimize consequences and obtain a case dismissal.
We defend juveniles and students against all types of charges, including:
Whenever possible, Colorado takes a rehabilitative approach in juvenile justice matters. Your child likely has many options in defense before being treated as a juvenile delinquent, sent to “juvi”, being required to perform community service, enrolled in a drug- or alcohol-treatment program, being placed on probation, losing driving privileges or being charged as an adult.
When a minor or student experiences a brush with the law, such as an arrest for a drunk driving, drug possession or petty theft, a parent worries. The one professional who can solve this problem is a skilled criminal defense attorney who handles every detail, every document, every phase of your loved one’s representation before the court or college disciplinary board.
When we handle your college or university student’s criminal matter, we will explain the issues in your son’s or daughter’s case, inform you of developments and provide honest answers to your urgent questions and concerns.
Our goal will be to obtain the best possible outcome, while preserving your child’s educational and career options.
