Criminal Defense Overview
BHGR represents criminal defendants throughout the state of Colorado in a wide variety of matters including:
- Federal and state white-collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, IRS tax violations, and environmental crime
- Federal and state drug offenses
- Crimes of violence such as assault and murder
- Property crimes
- Sex crimes
- DUI / DWI
- Criminal appeals
Our clients include lawyers, doctors, corporate officers, and licensed professionals whose careers and reputations are at stake in a criminal matter. We also represent criminal defendants in collateral administrative matters which often accompany criminal charges such as license revocations, administrative registrations, professional, and academic disciplinary proceedings.
When defending clients charged with white-collar crimes such as fraud, we often call upon our business and tax law attorneys. When necessary, we use investigators, forensic accountants, expert witnesses, and medical and psychological consultants to provide a comprehensive defense strategy. Unlike many smaller law offices, we have the staff and resources to hit the ground running on cases that may involve dozens of depositions and thousands of pages of financial records or other documents.
When representing a client charged with a serious offense, our goal is to try and protect our client's interests using all resources available. If we are successful in preventing charges from being filed or having charges dismissed, our attorneys will seek records sealing or expungement so our clients do not face the stigma of a criminal arrest record.
