Criminal Law

When you are accused of a DUI, domestic violence, or even a simple assault, you can stand to lose your license, your livelihood, even your freedom. In these moments, you need an aggressive advocate on your side who knows the system.

Patrick Fitz-Gerald was a Deputy District Attorney in Jefferson County Colorado from 2004-2009 where he tried over 100 cases ranging from felonies to misdemeanors to traffic offenses. During this time he saw that the vast majority of people accused of a crime are good, honest people who have simply made a mistake.

However, many people end up serving sentences that could have been avoided if they had a competent, informed lawyer to argue their case and guide them through a perilous and confusing system. In our legal system, all people have the right to be represented by an attorney.

At Driskell, Fitz-Gerald & Ray we provide effective and aggressive defense, at rates that make it possible to exercise that right.

With an Attorney, You Never Have to Worry About Facing Court Alone

A good defense attorney handles many different issues for you, from the first day of your case to the last. This includes procedural matters like making sure the right paperwork is filed in your defense and talking to police so they can’t twist your statements.

However, one of the most important things we do is represent you in court.

Criminal cases require the person charged to appear in court at least once and most often many times. In these stressful times, an attorney is essential. Everyone has the right to have an attorney when they are accused of a crime, but unless you are very indigent, you will have to find and hire an attorney on your own. Find one who can best represent you and your interests and who will treat you like a person and not a case number.

Most people who find themselves in criminal court have never been there before. They may lack confidence about what to do and what to say. An attorney helps prepare you for this pivotal event and makes sure others in the legal system don’t abuse or discard your rights.
