Charged with a Crime in Brighton? Turn to Brighton Criminal Lawyer Kimberly Diego
If you’re charged with a crime in Brighton, it’s imperative that you contact a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible. You may think that the whole incident was a big misunderstanding or a mistake and that you’ll be able to convince the judge of that, but you can’t guarantee that the judge or the prosecutor will be sympathetic just because you try to explain yourself. The prosecution is going to be pushing for a conviction, and you need to fight back with a defense mounted by an experienced legal representative who understands how to argue in a courtroom and advocate for your position to the opposing party.
Kimberly Diego is your best bet if you want to keep your charge from becoming a conviction. A trial lawyer with a solo practice serving the Brighton area, Ms. Diego truly believes that a rigorous defense in criminal cases is essential to a properly functioning and fair judicial system. She always listens closely to the details of each client’s case and goes above and beyond to find mitigating factors, condemning evidence that can be suppressed, and ways to counter the prosecution’s arguments. When you retain Ms. Diego, you can rest assured that she will pursue the best possible outcome in your case.
Brighton Criminal Charges Require an Excellent Defense Lawyer
You need to take criminal charges against you seriously, even if they’re not true. Just because you know you’re innocent doesn’t mean that the prosecution and judge will automatically recognize that, especially if they have evidence they can use to convict you. Whether you’re charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, a conviction can have devastating and far-reaching consequences, including steep fines, incarceration, and a tarnished personal and professional reputation. Don’t become passive when you find out you’ve been charged with a crime: contact a skilled criminal attorney in Brighton as soon as possible.

A Focus on Criminal Law Brings In-Depth Understanding
There are a lot of attorneys in the Brighton area, but you shouldn’t just walk down to the nearest law office and hire the first lawyer that you meet. Some Brighton attorneys who claim to practice criminal defense also say that they practice just about every other type of law you could think of, which suggests that they are spreading themselves thin and may not have the in-depth knowledge of criminal defense that you need. Other lawyers who focus solely on criminal law may lack the real world, trial experience to successfully defend you.
Kimberly Diego focuses solely on criminal law and has successfully handled many cases similar to yours. She knows that every situation is unique, but she is often able to use what she has learned from previous cases to mount a convincing defense. For example, she may be able to prove that evidence against you was obtained illegally and should be suppressed, or that there are mitigating factors that should cause the prosecutors reduce your charge. Many times, she has been able to get a client’s charge dropped altogether.
Ms. Diego has experience with many different kinds of criminal cases, including:

I had no experience with the justice system when I got my charge and would have been COMPLETELY lost in court without Kimberly there to get me through the process! I was certain I would at least get probation and fines, but Kim actually got my case dropped in the end! I couldn't believe it! I had other lawyers tell me I was in for much more but Kim went above and beyond to get the job done with the utmost integrity and professionalism! I would highly recommend her to anyone needing an attorney. Thanks again, Kim!

hen I started looking for a criminal lawyer to help with my husband's criminal case, I went through many initial consultations with other lawyers which resulted in me getting turned away because they felt our situation was hopeless. When I contacted Kimberly via email to ask if she thought she could help, I had barely just sent out the email when I saw a response from her. She told me she was confident she could help us, and she just made me feel so positive about everything. Kimberly has always been quick to respond, and she is great at mixing her professionalism with her compassion for the law and helping people get through their issues. I never doubted that she would help my husband get his open warrant lifted while he could not appear in person. We currently live in Brazil and we needed his warrant lifted in order for us to be able continue the immigration process, and despite all of the odds against us, she still did it! I highly recommend her services if you are looking for someone who is personal and professional, good at what they do, and not afraid to take on difficult cases. My husband's case is not yet finished completely yet, but we know Kimberly will get us through it!

I retained Kimberly Diego to represent me in a criminal case in 2010. I found her to be a very competent criminal defense attorney. She was able to assist me in getting my case dismissed. She knows the ins and outs of the Colorado courts and is able to offer sound advice based on that knowledge. Her fees were both reasonable and fair. I would highly recommend Ms. Diego.

We contacted Kimberly Diego for a DUI that involved some very difficult circumstances with law enforcement officers. Upon dealing with this very serious situation, I knew that it was going to be complicated and difficult to get through. I was facing my 3rd DUI conviction, yet the law enforcement officers in this case acted unethically. Kimberly was diligent in hiring two key investigators to gather information that would benefit my case, and in the end all the work aided in the DUI charge being dropped. Although my wife and I never want to go through a situation like this again, we would recommend Kimberly for a defense attorney. Her focus, will to not quit, and focus to the detail that was necessary for my case, were all key in her work with me. Kimberly is very busy yet we learned quickly that she was doing the work necessary to be ready for our court date. We highly recommend Kimberly!

I was truly fortunate to have Kimberly Diego as my Lawyer. She seems to practice law because she believes in the judicial process. Her negotiation skills and knowledge put me at my best advantage with respect to defending myself. It was evident in court that she was a trustworthy expert, and enabled me to enter a fair and reasonable plea. Her representation gave me confidence, and helped put my life back on track, a sort of reform that jail time or longer probation could never have accomplished. Moreover, Ms Diego is a realist, but still took on challenge. She went above and beyond what any other lawyers I spoke with could not even fathom. She did what was necessary to represent me in all aspects of my defense needs. Finally Ms Diego was efficient and worked quickly keeping the amount of billable hours to a number I could afford. I highly recommend Ms Diego as a defense lawyer.

Hello Kim, I wanted to thank you for representing me with my recent incident in the Boulder area. You wasted no time in contacting the court to address my case. We we received feedback from the court about my case, you were not satisfied with their statement for my outcome. You took the case back to them, and you presented reasons for them, to offer me a better deal. I believe I received the best outcome I could possibly receive, for my situation. If I have another opportunity to use you again, I would certainly not hesitate, in calling you for my representation. Thank you again, for your help.

Kimberly is a true professional. Shes professional, but not cold and strictly business. Kim took time to listen and ask questions and never being in a position in which i needed a lawyer, she actually made me feel as though i was a friend of hers that was in trouble and in need of her help. Kim was there for me and with her help and true professionalism the "other side" resorted to dropping all charges. Im am grateful that i made that call to Kimberly Diego and i would highly recommend her to represent you in court. Again thank you Kimberly, although i would NEVER want to go through it again, im glad to have met you, im happy to have had you represent me and consider you a friend

I contacted Kim concerning a case, which involved Indecent Exposure charges. Throughout the entire episode, she remained professional and courteous. I found her fees to be reasonable and fair. I was prepared to plea to the lesser charge, in exchange for a dismissal of the Indecent Exposure charge. After she explained she got both charges dismissed, I raised both my hands in triumph.
