Unfortunately, even after paying your dues in the eyes of the court, you may still be placed on probation for a crime once committed. In some cases, probation is an incredibly restrictive situation to find yourself in, and one that can be confusing and frustrating all at once. However, it is exponentially better than going to prison or jail.
If you’re having issues keeping with or understanding your
Regardless of the seriousness of the alleged crime, you still have rights if you are arrested, stopped, or being investigated for suspected criminal activity. It’s important to be aware of and take advantage of these rights if you want to protect your future and avoid incriminating yourself.
We’ve explored five potential situations that could occur if you are suspected of a crime, and included guidance on your rights
Just south of Florence, Co. stands the ADX Florence prison, home to some of America’s most dangerous felons. The prison is—by former warden Robert Hood’s own admission—“a clean version of hell.”
Hood, who was warden from 2002 to 2005, made the above statement in an interview with 60 Minutes. He was describing the harsh conditions of the highest security prison in the United States—sometimes called the “Supermax.” ADX has
While republicans and democrats may disagree on everything from taxes to abortion laws, there’s one thing both political parties appear to strongly agree on—there are some big criminal problems with our criminal justice system.
As we come to the third month of 2015, many hot issues are coming to the surface that politicians and civilians alike realize need to be addressed. Some of the most important problems facing our
Even if they have never been read to you, you are probably at least vaguely familiar with the Miranda rights—you know, the “Everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law” spiel. What you might not know, however, is that this rule isn’t limited to the things you say once you’re in police custody. Courts are also generally able to take quotes from
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.

In recent years, Colorado has been at the forefront of marijuana legalization, pioneering policies that have influenced the national conversation on drug laws. With Denver as a key player in this movement, individuals with marijuana-related offenses find themselves in a unique position amidst evolving legal landscapes.
One question that arises is whether it’s possible to seal these offenses and what implications changing marijuana laws might have on the process. This
Driving under the influence (DUI) charges can have severe consequences, both legally and personally. In Denver, like in many jurisdictions, DUI cases often hinge on the results of tests conducted by law enforcement officers.
However, these tests are not infallible, and there are several avenues through which their accuracy can be challenged. Understanding the common challenges and inaccuracies in DUI test results is crucial for every Denver driver facing such
