Aggressively Protecting Your Freedom

If you have been charged with a criminal offense or if you are being investigated by law enforcement for crime1criminal activity, protecting your rights and advancing your best interests in any criminal matter are crucial.

Whether you are facing a misdemeanor, such as a Colorado DUI, domestic violence or a restraining order, our lawyers at The Drexler Law Group, LLC, can help protect your rights. Our firm provides aggressive and thorough defense work from investigation of the evidence to representation in a court of law. We serve clients in the Colorado Springs area.

Innocent Until Proven Guilty

In any criminal defense case, you are innocent until proven guilty. The prosecutor in your case, also known as the district attorney, has the burden of proving that you are guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and must establish each and every element of the offense charged by the same high burden.

A criminal conviction can have a tremendous impact on the accused. It is important to consult an experienced criminal defense attorney for accurate information on the criminal charges you may be facing and to formulate a strategy to defend yourself.

Unfortunately, the criminal defense system is not designed, much less implemented, to be a fair process. Clients have contacted us after being accused of crimes they either did not commit or for which the prosecutor cannot establish each element beyond a reasonable doubt. However, these same individuals had to endure the process of defending themselves because it does not matter whether you committed the offense, it only matters what you can demonstrate to the prosecution, the court and in some cases to a jury of your peers by exercising your constitutional rights to a jury trial.

Whether you were charged with drunk driving, are facing a domestic violence situation or are impacted by a protection order, we can help.

The Lasting Impact Of A Criminal Conviction

Criminal convictions can lead to jail or prison time in the Department of Corrections, fines, restitution (which involves compensating the alleged victim financially), court-mandated therapy or treatment, probation (supervised or unsupervised), loss of a driver's license, loss of the right to vote and the loss of your right to own guns or weapons. Furthermore, if you are convicted, you will have a permanent criminal record that could limit future employment, educational opportunities and professional licensing opportunities. In Colorado's vast land, a conviction can mean that you are no longer able to hunt or even obtain a concealed carry or concealed weapon permit.

Criminal charges and criminal convictions can also impact military service members. Military members need to navigate the gauntlet created by the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act ("the Brady Bill" or "the Brady Law") and the Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban (called "the Lautenberg Amendment"). The Lautenberg prevents those convicted of domestic violence (misdemeanor or felony offenses) or those under a protection order or restraining order from owning or possessing guns or ammunition. The Brady Bill prevents ownership or possession of firearms in most cases by those convicted of felonies, any domestic violence offense and those individuals restrained under a protective or restraining order.
