Are the police and prosecution hard at work building a case against you? Let’s get to work protecting your rights.
The Denver-Aurora-Lakewood metropolitan area may not be a hotbed of crime, but every day, our law enforcement and prosecutors are energetically sending more and more citizens into our overcrowded jails and prisons. Saddling people with harsh punishments can even mean a career boost for some.
Unfortunately, in such an atmosphere, rules meant to protect all of us can be bent – or even broken – and rights can be trampled. Worse, if you are arrested or charged with a crime in Colorado Springs, Aurora, Castle Rock, Centennial, Greenwood Village, Highlands Ranch, or other parts of El Paso, Arapahoe, and Douglas Counties, you may not even realize that your rights are being violated. The U.S. Constitution is a piece of paper, but for some police and prosecutors, it may be considered an obstacle to be worked around -- until someone defends the rights it guarantees you.
You may not be familiar with the nuances of police procedure and the Colorado Criminal Justice System. You may find it hard to move past the fear and confusion that takes hold of far too many people when they find themselves on the wrong side of the law. Will you have to go to jail? How much is this going to cost you? What can you do to let your family know? Are you going to have a job when all of this is over?
Colorado defense lawyer Vernon Ready has helped countless people craft a strategy designed to get charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed, and he can do the same thing for you. Moreover, he can help you to answer those questions that are clouding your mind, and ensure that your rights are respected and that law enforcement officials do not cut any corners.

Perhaps most importantly, Vernon Ready will thoroughly prepare your case for a jury trial if your case calls for it. The right to trial is the ultimate check on the prosecution’s enormous government resources. No accused person should have to stand before a group of potential jurors and attempt to identify those who will not hold the prosecution to their burden, those who will not take “beyond a reasonable doubt” to heart.
Every accused person should do everything they can to have a professional by their side through each step of a criminal trial. Vernon Ready works hard to resolve cases prior to trial, all while preparing each case for a possible trial from day one. If you believe your case may be a trial case, you will need an experienced and passionate trial lawyer on your side. Choose an attorney who has won a range of criminal trials, and someone who constantly works to see those accused by the government walk away free.
When deciding on a defense attorney, one of the first things you should look for is that they know how to handle the specific type of charge you are facing. It is not enough to simply find an experienced and knowledgeable criminal lawyer in or around Colorado Springs. If you have been charged with a DUI, check to see that they have successfully helped others with DUI charges. If you have been arrested for theft, find someone who has experience with that charge.
Be careful not to select someone with too narrow a focus, though. Why? Because it is not uncommon for a person to initially be charged with one crime, but have additional charges added as the investigation continues. You need a lawyer who possesses both a depth and breadth of knowledge regarding Colorado criminal law.
Vernon Ready can help with a number of different criminal charges, including:
If you do not see the specific crime of which you have been accused here, do not assume that Mr. Ready is unable to help. This list is merely an example of the types of cases Ready Law takes on regularly. Get in contact with our office, and we will be happy to talk to you about your charges.
Picking someone with experience handling the specific charges you are up against is a good start, but there are a number of other things that you should look for in a criminal attorney. When you choose Vernon Ready, you get a legal professional who understands that getting the best possible outcome requires more than just knowing his way around a court room. Mr. Ready prides himself on being:
Going through a criminal case is stressful. It is frightening. It is confusing. Often, clients tell Mr. Ready that they feel like they have no control over anything.
To combat these feelings and keep you grounded, Vernon Ready tries to make himself as available as possible. If he is in court or a meeting when you call, he will return your call before the end of the next business day.
Beyond the ability to get in touch with Mr. Ready when you need him, he also works hard to help clients understand their situation, including what they are up against, the options available to them, and how the legal process is going to go, step by step. There is a reason that lawyers go to school for years – the law is incredibly complicated. When you work with Vernon Ready, he tries to keep things as simple and straightforward as possible.
Local law enforcement officials and prosecutors have one job: to get you convicted. To achieve this goal, they may threaten, scare, and bully people who have been charged. You never have to worry about this happening to Vernon Ready. His thorough knowledge of Colorado criminal law, experience helping others fight their charges, and his high level of personal preparation mean that he will not be intimidated.
Hiring Mr. Ready means getting an advocate in your corner who will not stop battling for you until every legal option has been exhausted. He understands how much the outcome of this case can impact not only your life, but also your family members and even your community. It is a responsibility that he takes very seriously, and you can rest assured that he will give his all to earn you a positive outcome.
While being charged with a crime in or around Parker, Castle Rock, Englewood, Lone Tree, Littleton, Lakewood, or Golden is something that is horrible to go through, it is important to remember that a charge is not the same thing as a conviction. It may not feel that way, but you are innocent until proven guilty. There is still hope.
Put that hope to work by getting in contact with Ready Law as soon as possible. Time matters. The faster an experienced attorney starts helping you craft a strong defense, the more likely you are to achieve the best possible outcome. Waiting to hire someone only serves to give the prosecution a bigger head start.
