Denver Criminal Defense Cases

Man In Denver Charged With Assault With A Deadly Weapon

Michael was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, after he shot at an intruder that broke into his home. He was confused and scared. Faced with a charge that carries mandatory prison time if convicted, he turned to Denver criminal defense attorney Doug Richards.

Doug Richards was able to get the case dismissed, and Michael’s record was sealed. The judge found no probable cause.

“I had an attempted burglary, break-in at my house and I shot someone with a firearm. My ordeal lasted about three months. It was frightening. You don’t know what’s going on. You thought you could defend yourself, your property, someone’s trying to come into your home. They arrest you, you’re dazed and confused, you’re like a deer in headlights. You don’t know what’s going on, what to do, who to turn to.

We looked up online, and we seen a lot of his videos go up, and we watched a lot of his videos, and we called him up and he scheduled us an appointment and we came in and talked to him. I was definitely satisfied with all the work that Doug did for me. I thought Doug was really professional. When we talked to him he wrote everything down and was real meticulous in everything that he did, and thorough. He’s real upfront, and lets you know what his prices are and how he works things and you just know going in that there’s no surprises anywhere. He doesn’t sugar coat things, if it’s a serious situation he’s going to let you know, but he’s also going to let you know that he’s going to be there to back you up, and do his best to do whatever is right.

He communicates very well through email, or even text messages, phone calls, it doesn’t matter. As long as you contact him one way, he’s going to get in touch with you. He lets you know what’s going on, and he’s real thorough in letting you know where you have to be, what you have to do. Especially with the paperwork stuff, showing us, “This is what I’m doing. You know what. We could do this. We could do that.”

He explains everything to you, and puts it in a way that you can understand. It’s not the lawyer lingo. He really talks to you and makes sure you understand what’s going on, so I really appreciated that about him. He’s just a stand up guy. I didn’t enjoy what happened to me, but Doug made it so that it was enjoyable working with him. I recommend Doug to everyone.”
