Criminal Defense

Experienced Defense Counsel Protecting Immediate and Long-Term Interests

There's more to effective criminal defense than getting a charge dismissed or winning a jury verdict of not guilty. In some cases, none of the defendant's choices is especially attractive, simply because the evidence of guilt is too strong for the prosecuting attorney to just walk away from the case.

Even if you end up needing to enter a plea on a compromise charge, the quality of the legal advice you received will be sure to show up later on. Will you lose access to student loans because of a marijuana conviction? Will a domestic violence conviction cost you your right to own a gun? Will a DUI conviction get you in trouble with a professional licensing board? Will you be eligible for expungement after completion of a diversion program?

Reliable Advice and Trial Advocacy in Northern Colorado

We are Greeley criminal defense lawyers Stephanie Stout and Robert Casey. We focus on the successful resolution of criminal charges for our clients through highly advanced trial skills, thorough investigation of the facts, and an uncompromising commitment to the best interests of the people we work for, now and in the future. Our ability to protect your continuing interests while fighting the case before us represents a hallmark of our practice.

Examples of the kinds of criminal cases we handle throughout northern Colorado include:

  • Violent crimes, including murder, manslaughter or aggravated assault
  • Weapons violations and illegal gun possession
  • Domestic violence
  • Colorado DUI and DWAI charges
  • Drug possession, cultivation or distribution charges
  • Sex crimes from indecent exposure to forcible rape
  • Property crimes such as auto theft, burglary, arson or robbery
  • White collar crimes like fraud, embezzlement or forgery
  • Serious traffic offenses

Whenever possible, we aim for the dismissal or significant reduction of the original charges against you. If the charge you're facing is a felony, we try to get it dropped to a misdemeanor. If you're eligible for treatment, diversion, deferred sentencing or other alternatives, we'll try to get your case out of the criminal justice system altogether.

Weld County White Collar Crime Defense Lawyers

Many of our clients work in the licensed professions, attend college or have other important interests to protect for their career, their education or their family. If you face administrative sanctions related to a criminal offense, we can represent you in the disciplinary or license suspension proceeding while we're defending you on the criminal charges.

At every point of the case, we keep our clients fully informed of the options for resolving it, which often come down to accepting a plea offer or taking the defense to trial. We can't make that decision for you, but we can make sure that the information you have to work with reflects our best professional judgment.
