Domestic Violence Attorneys

Domestic Violence Defense

Police and prosecutors alike in Boulder and throughout Colorado Front Range communities take domestic violence issues seriously. When the police are called to respond to the scene of a domestic argument, someone is going to jail. Even if the victim of the domestic assault chooses not to press charges, the matter will be turned over to the district attorney’s office to prosecute.

When you or someone you care about is facing domestic violence charges, you need to know your rights under the law and act quickly to protect them. At The Moorhead Law Group, in Boulder, we have the experience, knowledge and dedication to successfully defend your rights at every stage of the legal process.

Contact us to schedule a free initial consultation with one of our experienced Boulder domestic violence attorneys right away. If you need immediate help after hours, call us 24/7 to leave a message.

If you have been arrested for domestic abuse or any form of family violence following an argument, the district attorney’s office takes over prosecution of the charges. The person suffering the assault injuries may not have the option of dropping charges.

Attorney David Moorhead is a former deputy district attorney who has prosecuted hundreds of cases involving domestic assault, child abuse and violations of orders of protection. His experience can help you get your life back on track.

We will carefully examine all available evidence and use our in-depth understanding of even the most complex criminal laws and capitalize on any mistakes the prosecution might make. Domestic violence and abuse charges in Boulder are often very serious, and we treat every case with utmost importance.

David helped my brother resolve a case that was dragging on and on with a public defender within 10 days of me reaching out to him (and got a much better deal for my brother). Worth the money and is very nice to work with!

David Moorhead was a miracle worker. We hired him to finish a case that kept going on and on for years by an overworked public defender. He got it done in days. Not only did he get it done in days, he went beyond what we hired him to do and got a way better agreement than we anticipated. I can’t recommend him enough.

David Moorhead exceeded my expectations. He was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to manage my case and how to speak to the DA to get the outcome I desired. I was amazed at the outcome of my case. David made it quick, simple and painless. I would recommend him over and over again to anyone needing legal assistance.
