In Colorado, approximately 26,000 people are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) each year. That is roughly one out of every 200 people living in the state. Being charged with DUI does not mean you are guilty of DUI, and the attorneys at Hebets & McCallin will bring a combined two decades of experience in this area of the law to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the best defense. Driving cars and socializing over drinks are two of the activities most regularly engaged in by adults. Often, the decision whether to drive after recent drinking is not black and white. Read more...
Each year in Colorado, more than 14,000 people are charged with misdemeanor "domestic violence" (DV) crimes. Contrary to what you might think, to be arrested for DV, the arrestee and the "victim" need not be married or in a domestic partnership and the arrestee need not have acted violently or caused the victim injury. Nevertheless, the traditional image of a “wife-beater” continues to be associated with DV, and therefore a conviction for even a very low-level DV crime, such as harassment-DV, can have devastating repercussions for your employment or in child custody disputes. If you have been charged with any DV crime, the attorneys at Hebets & McCallin will put years of experience to work to minimize the impact of the charge on your life.Read more...

In the criminal justice system, children and teenagers are not treated the same as adults. While the adult justice system focuses on punishment, the juvenile justice system focuses on treatment and rehabilitation. That being said, there are still very serious consequences arising from juvenile charges, including the potential of juvenile detention. If your child is facing criminal charges in Colorado, you need to contact an experienced Denver criminal attorney who understands the juvenile justice system and can defend the rights of the minor. It is possible for the State to file charges against a juvenile in district court. This is known as the direct file system, which allows prosecutors to try juveniles who are 16 or 17 years old as adults. This usually happens in situations where the juvenile is accused of committing a violent crime. We have more information about Juvenile offenses here.
