Colorado Criminal Defense Attorneys Uphold the Rights of the Accused

Longmont law firm defends clients charged with crimes in the areas around Boulder County 

When you face criminal charges, you need an attorney who will fight for your rights, explain all your options, and give you the advice you need to make informed decisions. No matter what type of charges you are facing, the attorneys at the law firm of Flanders, Elsberg, Herber & Dunn, LLC have the experience and skill to provide an aggressive defense while giving you an honest appraisal of your case. Our lawyers are familiar with the Colorado criminal justice system. While we have productive relationships with local prosecutors, we are not afraid to take your case to a jury if that’s your best option.

Experienced attorneys represent Boulder County and Northern Colorado defendants

If you have been accused of a crime, the decisions you make now can affect the rest of your life. The strength of your defense should be assessed by an attorney who fully understands the unique facts of your case and who knows how the law applies to your circumstances. Our attorneys regularly represent clients accused of:

  • DUI/DWAI — In the state of Colorado, it is a crime to drive while intoxicated by drugs or alcohol. Depending on your level of intoxication, this crime is known as Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI). Drivers with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.05 percent or higher can face DWAI charges, while those with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher may be charged with DUI.
  • Drug crimes — Our attorneys provide representation to those accused of various drug crimes. If you are charged with the possession, distribution or trafficking of controlled substances such as cocaine, heroin, ecstasy, methamphetamine and marijuana, we work to get the charges against you dropped or reduced.
  • Traffic violations — Whether you have been charged with misdemeanor traffic violations such as careless driving, driving without insurance or speeding, or face felony charges for leaving the scene of a serious accident or vehicular homicide, you need an experienced attorney capable of mounting a strong defense.

Our Longmont criminal defense team represents clients in courts throughout Northern Colorado.
