Colorado Criminal Defense Attorney

Being arrested may be the scariest or one of the scariest moments in your life. The future is uncertain and your life could be changed forever. That’s why it’s so important to hire an experienced Breckenridge, Colorado criminal defense attorney to help you with your case. As someone who has been practicing for more than 20 years, I have incredible amounts of knowledge and insight on the criminal justice system and am familiar with all local laws and rules.

I Can Help With Any Type of Case

I can handle any type of criminal case in Breckenridge, so no matter what you or a loved one has been charged with, you’re in the right place. From DUIs and assaults to white collar crimes and appeals, I’m here for you. 

Why Hire a Criminal Defense Attorney?

Some people think they can handle a criminal offense on their own, especially if it’s a minor charge. While sometimes this is the case, it’s almost never a good idea. Unless you’ve been specifically trained in this area of the law, it’s unlikely that you will know the ins and outs in a way that will allow you to present the best defense for yourself. Hiring a good criminal defense attorney is crucial, and they can help you in the following ways:

Gathering Evidence: One of the most important things a criminal defense attorney can do for you is gather as much evidence as possible to help present your legal defense. This includes witness statements, video footage, police reports, retaining expert witnesses, and more. While some of this could be done without a lawyer, it would be very difficult. It’s always better to have a professional because they know what they’re looking for and will know how to obtain it.

Relationship with Judges and Prosecutors: Another major benefit to hiring a local criminal defense attorney is the relationships they’ve likely built with judges and prosecutors. Defense attorneys who have been practicing for years in the same jurisdiction inevitably work with the same judges and prosecutors over the years. Having an existing relationship with these parties can often lead to a better plea offer from the prosecutor. Additionally, when you hire an excellent criminal defense attorney, the judges and prosecutors will know to take you and your case seriously and not try to manipulate the situation. 

Negotiation: If you try to negotiate a plea deal with the prosecutor, it will be much more difficult to do on your own than if you have an attorney. Not only do you probably not know all of the laws and how the system works, but prosecutors will assume that since you aren’t a lawyer, you don’t know what you are talking about. This will result in a less favorable offer than if you had hired a lawyer. A criminal defense lawyer with decades of experience will have honed their negotiation skills and this will almost certainly lead to a better outcome.

I got in some trouble in Park County (driving way, way to fast) and was looking at potential jail time, so I wanted a mountain town lawyer to represent me. J.B. gave me great advice on what to do in advance of my hearing, represented me well and both kept me out of jail and minimized the pain on my wallet/license status. No judgment and the right amount of straight talk. She knows the court system and the players in Park County, so instilled a lot of confidence. I recommend her without reservation.
I appreciate you and having my life back Hey JB, I just wanted to say thank you for helping me through my legal shit. I was miserable for years and now that's it's behind me, my life is back on track. Thank you. I had 2 awful attorneys, you got everything taken care of in a fraction of the time they spent doing nothing. I appreciate you and having my life back.
JB was tenacious in following up with my case. She worked hard and followed through. She was on top of every step and shined like a star. I will use her services any time. She is a great knowledgeable lawyer who has your back. Thank you JB Katz.
