Denver DUI LawyerDenver DUI Lawyer

If you are facing charges for driving under the influence, you need a Denver DUI attorney who can protect your driver's license and your freedom. You need one who is experienced in handling these difficult cases and who understands the various defenses available.

My name is Richard Crane, and as a former Deputy District Attorney I am an experienced DUI lawyer in Denver who focuses exclusively on the special defenses needed to effectively challenge charges related to operating a vehicle while impaired.

When you come into the office I’ll discuss your case, tell you my initial thoughts and highlight some preliminary defenses available to you. Even if you blew over the legal limit in a breathalyzer test you may still have a strong defense, especially with me on your side.

I will begin attacking the suspension, challenging everything from the reason for the stop to when the breathalyzer test was given. I have access to the same technology as the prosecution, so I’ll be able to determine if your rights were violated in any way before, during and after the traffic stop. There is a good chance that my diligence could lead to license reinstatement right away.

Did You Know

Colorado law is very strict against drunk drivers. This is why it is so important for you to have an experienced Metro Denver DUI lawyer working for you as soon possible. Drivers arrested with a blood alcohol content (BAC) above 0.08 are subject to Denver DUI penalties such as:

  • 5 days to a year in jail
  • License suspension of 1 year,
  • $600 to $1000 fine
  • Mandatory sentence of at least 48 hours of public service.

Second offenders are faced with even greater penalties:

  • 10 days in jail
  • Possible jail sentence between 3 months and one year
  • Fines between $1000 and $1500
  • License suspended for a year
  • Mandatory 60 hours (at least) community service.

Third-time offenders have similar penalties, except that your license suspension will last up to 5 years.
In addition to these crimes, Colorado will charge anyone with a BAC between 0.05 and 0.08% with a DWAI. A first time DWAI can result in a jail sentence up to 180 days, fines up to $500 and a minimum of 24 hours community service. Second-time DWAIs have sentences similar to first-time DUIs, with the exception of a minimum 5 day jail sentence.

While these potential penalties are severe, representation by an experienced Denver DUI lawyer can make all the difference in the world. It could mean the difference between a year in jail and a year of freedom.  Contact me and schedule a consultation with an experienced Denver DUI attorney who will fight for you.
