Need Answers?
We've Got them

  • How should I choose a Denver criminal defense attorney?
    A: First and foremost, your lawyer should be confident and knowledgeable in their practice. You should always feel comfortable with discussing the details of your situation and your freedom and your rights should be your counsel’s top priority. At Fife Luneau, P.C., our team has a true passion for what we do, and our experience and zealous advocacy is a testament to this. We have a proven track record for results and will always fight for your best interest.
  • How much are your legal fees?
    A: Fife Luneau, P.C. handles cases on an upfront flat-fee schedule that is determined based on how severe your charges, how complex the case, and whether you need to go to trial. We will discuss all issues with you beforehand, and once you agree to our fees, we’ll hold your money in a trust on your behalf. This way we can focus on your matter and not on money. Our firm also accepts all major credit cards.
  • After an arrest, what are my rights?
    A: Every U.S. citizen is granted certain rights by the Constitution. These include the face that you are innocent until proven guilty, and that burden is put on the prosecution. After you have been charged, you have the right to a public trial, skilled counsel of your choosing or a court-appointed lawyer, if needed, the right to remain silent to protect yourself from incrimination, the right to cross-examine the accused, the right to testify, or not, and the right to an appeal.
  • What’s a plea bargain? Should I enter into one?
    A: Always consult with a Denver criminal defense attorney before entering into any pleas. This is because a plea bargain is an admission of your guilt and could mean hefty, long-term consequences for your freedom and your reputation. In addition, trials often can result in more favorable outcomes if you have a skilled and knowledgeable advocate on your side.
