What You Need To Know About Felony Charges

The legal system can be tremendously complex and difficult to understand. The smartest thing you can do is discuss your options with a knowledgeable attorney. At my firm, J.P. Martin Law Group, I represent clients throughout Colorado. I am here to examine your case and explain potential solutions. As your advocate, I will do everything I can to fight for the best possible result.

How Are These Crimes Categorized?

Felonies are divided into different levels. In Colorado, there are six different classifications. Class 6 carries the lowest penalties and class 1 carries the highest. Some low-level felonies may be downgraded to misdemeanors at the time of sentencing. On the other hand, some misdemeanors may become felonies if someone has been convicted multiple times. You could be facing jail time and steep fines. This is why it is crucial to have the right attorney by your side. I have helped clients facing:

  • Felony DUI: Serious DUI charges bring significant consequences – I can help you prepare an aggressive defense to Felony DUI.
  • Felony assault: When a person has been severely injured, it is likely that prosecutors will seek strong penalties in your case – I will work with you to protect your rights at every step of the process.
  • Assault with a deadly weapon: Weapons crimes are often a major focus of prosecutors – do not plead guilty without knowing your options.
  • Felony theft: I will review the facts in your case and help you determine the best approach to take to minimize potential consequences.

In addition, drug crimes have their own levels of classification. There are four levels. Level 4 crimes are the least severe and level 1 crimes are the most severe. Again, this has an impact on the consequences you are facing. I understand the severity of the charges brought against you and the impact it can have on your future. I listen to each client judgment-free and provide honest feedback. You will never be left in the dark as to where your case stands or what I am doing to help you move forward.
