Many felony offenses involving force are defined as violent crimes here in Colorado. Even if you believed you were exercising your right to defend yourself, your family or your property, the police are not required to believe you, and you may be charged with a crime of violence.
Convictions for felony violent crimes include serious consequences, including mandatory minimum prison sentences. At The Law Office of Thomas W. Martin, LLC, in Fort Collins, I provide comprehensive criminal defense representation. My extensive practice includes the following charges:
- Sex assault
- Assault with a weapon
- First-, second- and third-degree assault
- Aggravated robbery
- Menacing (threatening someone)
The courts consider use of a weapon, a defendant's state of mind and the physical injuries of the alleged victim when determining the nature and severity of the charge. If you find yourself charged with assault, first-degree, second-degree or third-degree assault, you need guidance and representation from a lawyer who has routine experience handling these cases. As a dedicated Fort Collins assault and battery attorney, I bring more than 10 years of experience. I understand how these charges can affect your rights, your property and your family. I will aggressively fight to protect your rights and your future.
I offer free initial consultations to all new clients. I invite you to call my law firm today at 970-237-5688 or toll free at 888-383-6179 to discuss your situation with a qualified Colorado defense lawyer.
