Do Not Accept Unjustly Severe or Excessive Charges
Colorado law varies significantly in how it handles the use, possession, and distribution of controlled substances. At one end of the spectrum, medical marijuana with a written prescription is legal in Colorado; at the other end, a special offender conviction could result in a 48 year prison sentence. The government will generally attempt to levy the most severe charges possible against a defendant--charges that are often excessive or unfair.
The attorneys at Charles L. Fife & Associates, PC have helped many clients fight unjust charges and avoid the serious consequences of a drug crime conviction. We focus on trial defense, which means we never hesitate to go to court when it is in our clients' best interests. Our firm is also experienced in deferred prosecution, and may take this tack if it enables our client to maintain a clean record.
