Drug Crimes Defense Lawyers For Clients In Colorado Front Range Communities
There was a time that Colorado had a national reputation for taking an easy stance on drug possession offenses. Mountain communities such as Vail and Aspen took a leadership role in fighting for the legalization of marijuana and the relaxation of penalties for narcotics offenses. That is no longer the case. District attorneys of Colorado Front Range jurisdictions now prosecute narcotics offenses with vigor and seek harsh penalties for a conviction, including mandatory jail time for the most dangerous types of drugs.
If you or a loved one is under investigation or have already been arrested and charged with a narcotics offense, don't assume anything and don't talk to the deputy district attorney about a deal until you talk to us. We are the criminal defense team at Moorhead & Griffin, LLP, in Boulder. Attorneys David Moorhead and Christopher Griffin are both former prosecutors in the Front Range. Our firm is recognized as one of the premier drug crimes defense firms in the Front Range region.
From offices in Boulder, our lawyers provide legal counsel for clients in jurisdictions throughout the Colorado Front Range region, including Adams County, Arapahoe County, Boulder County, Broomfield County, Denver County, Eagle County, Gilpin County, Jefferson County, Larimer County, Summit County and Weld County. Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our experienced Boulder drug possession defense attorneys right away.

Colorado Drug Crime Considerations
Prosecutors often tack on additional charges, in order to have the best chance of a conviction. No matter how small the amount in your possession, you can get charged with distribution, conspiracy and other charges that make the offense and the punishment much more serious. Under Colorado statutes, if the amount in your possession exceeds a certain amount — even if it is intended for personal use — you face a mandatory prison sentence.
Moorhead & Griffin understand the intricacies of criminal prosecution and know the areas to challenge to give you the best possible defense. We will review all discovery and lab test results that the prosecution has and evaluate the accuracy of the test results. We will also look to determine whether there are any motions we can file to throw out the evidence against you. This might include a motion to suppress due to illegal search and seizure, motions to quash search warrants, or a motion to identify law enforcement informants.
