Our lawyers have built a strong reputation for establishing strong relationships and earning respect and credibility throughout the community and the court systems.

I thoroughly explain the process and offer straightforward advice, giving clients the knowledge they need to make good decisions.

From DUI to domestic violence, trial lawyer handles a range of criminal charges
Rachel A. Michael has the skills, knowledge and resources to develop effective defense strategies for misdemeanor and felony charges in northern Colorado, including:
- Criminal law — I aggressively defend and protect the rights of adults, college students and juveniles facing criminal charges ranging from assaults to theft and other property crimes to drug offenses. An experienced criminal defense attorney can make all the difference in the outcome of your case.
- Domestic violence — In Colorado, domestic violence is considered a “sentencing enhancer” and not a separate charge. If the parties involved were or are in an intimate relationship, the sentence for the related charge, such as assault, harassment, trespassing or criminal mischief, is enhanced at the very least with court-ordered treatment.
- DUI/DWAI — When you are arrested for impaired or drunk driving in Colorado, you face both criminal charges and administrative proceedings involving your driver license. I are experienced in these cases, and we defend and protect your rights on both fronts.
- Juvenile offenses — When a juvenile is charged with a crime, it is essential that legal counsel be retained as soon as possible to avoid long-term consequences as an adult. I represent juveniles charged with a variety of offenses, from assault, theft and drug offenses to trespassing, shoplifting, and possession or consumption of alcohol.
