Criminal Mischief Lawyer in Colorado

EFFECTIVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE STRATEGIES
I work as a criminal mischief lawyer in Colorado. As you know, criminal mischief has likely been around for as long as people have owned personal property. Any time a person knowingly damages someone else’s property without the owner’s permission commits criminal mischief. Criminal mischief is also known as malicious mischief, vandalism, damage to property, or by other names depending on which state you reside.

It’s important to note you can’t accidentally commit criminal mischief. To be charged with criminal mischief you must have knowingly damaged someone else’s property. The amount of damage can be significant or minor. It’s the value of the damage that determines the severity of the crime, whether a misdemeanor or a felony offense. Criminal mischief does not involve taking another’s property, only breaking, defacing, or otherwise damaging it without the owner’s permission. I’m here to listen, understand how you got in this position and be your advocate in assisting you overcome this charge. I will complete an investigation on your behalf, review police reports, interview relevant witnesses and build a compelling defense on your behalf.

As a criminal mischief lawyer in Colorado, I have handled cases involving:
• Damaging another’s home, vehicle or other personal property.
• Painting, tagging, or graffitiing someone’s property.
• Damaging property while walking home from the bars.
• Getting upset and throwing something that damages another’s property.

Criminal Trespass Attorney

When you enter onto someone’s property without permission or enter into someone’s home without permission, this constitutes criminal trespass. Depending on whether the trespass is to a home or some other structure determines whether the crime is a misdemeanor or a felony. If you are accused of criminal trespass, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights. I’m here to listen, understand how you got in this position and be your advocate in assisting you overcome this charge. I will complete an investigation on your behalf, review police reports, interview relevant witnesses and build a compelling defense on your behalf.

As a criminal trespass lawyer in Colorado, I have handled cases involving:
• Being in someone’s home, being asked to leave and upon not leaving, the owner calls the police and has you arrested.
• After partying all night, crashing on a friend’s couch only to find out the next morning you’re in someone’s home that you do not know.
• Being on someone’s property uninvited
• Being at a business after previously being “trespassed” from the property

Advocacy For College Students

Many criminal mischief cases involve campus crimes. If you are a student or you have been charged with a campus crime, it is important for you to take immediate action to protect your rights and your future. I am also experienced in working with parents who live out of state and who need representation for a son or daughter at CSU or another college on the Colorado front range. I will take the time to understand your unique and individual concerns, develop an appropriate defense strategy and work aggressively to defeat charges and/or minimize penalties in your case.

I've been going to Liggett, Johnson & Goodman for close to a decade now, I've worked with David Johnson in the past, but mostly with Gail Goodman. They've always done a fantastic job, been very friendly and professional, and have given me invaluable advice. I can't thank them enough for all they've done to help me and my family.

Liggett , Johnson and Goodman all but give you the results you’re looking for. At the end of the day the $ they ask for is excessive, especially when you’re given sub par results. 40 for 1/2 hour for an email conversation because of the current pandemic! I also have yet to understand why my account when from positive 193.32 to negative 600.00 in one month due to their very confusing and highly misleading billing statements. LMAO it must have been a lot of emailing that month! With the resources available today, you can research most of the information they give you and SAVE your $ and your time. Don’t get stuck paying these people’s house payments! I recommend hiring them for as little work as possible, or not at all!
