When You Get Charged in Arvada, People Notice – Fight Back

Despite the fact that over 100,000 people live here, Arvada, Colorado is largely a sleepy community with much of its population commuting to nearby Denver or Boulder each day.

A good place to buy a house and raise a family, with lots of parks and open spaces, recreation activities, and a historic downtown. If you like classic cars, you can check out the Cussler Museum. Into arts and performing? Head to the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities.

What it is not is a hotbed of criminal activity. In fact, according to Sperling’s Best Places, the property crimes rate here is less than the state, national, and Denver-Lakewood-Aurora Metro average. Violent crimes are even lower, hovering at around a third of each of those areas.

In general, this is a good thing both for Arvada citizens and visitors. However, that comes with one big caveat: if you get arrested or charged with a crime in Arvada, it is a huge deal. Your friends and neighbors are far more likely to notice, and local law enforcement officials will have no problem making an example out of you to keep the crime rate low.

If you want to protect your family, future, and good name, you owe it to yourself to put up the strongest defense possible. That means working with a knowledgeable and experienced Colorado criminal attorney who has successfully handled cases like yours before.

Vernon Ready is that attorney. As someone who has been helping Coloradans just like you to protect their rights and stand up for themselves for years, he understands how the system works and what needs to be done to make sure you receive the most positive outcome.

Why So Many People in Arvada Decide to Get Help from Ready Law

What makes someone a good defense attorney? Is it where they went to school? How many awards they have?

These things can matter, but they are not the only things that matter.

Vernon Ready has all that, but he also possesses other attributes that clients appreciate:

An understanding of how to deal with law enforcement.

Police officers and prosecutors are largely good people doing a very tough job. Moreover, they have to confront the worst of humanity on a daily basis. It shouldn’t be a surprise that they will use every legal trick in the book to trip up suspects and increase their likelihood of making a conviction.

What does that mean for you? That you need to have someone by your side who knows the law and will fight for your rights every step of the way. Who will not allow law enforcement officials to sweet talk, bully, or outright lie to you in order to get you to say or do something that will harm your case.

Mr. Ready knows how to make sure that law enforcement officials do not overstep their bounds – and what to do if this does happen in your case. He understands what is necessary to maintain a good working relationship with police and prosecutors while refusing to be put off or accept unnecessary delays that can work against you.

Compassion and empathy.

Working as a criminal lawyer is a job, but for Vernon Ready, it’s more than that. He completely understands that he will be meeting you at what is likely the lowest point in your life. He knows how terrifying it is to face criminal charges and all of the worries that are probably going through your mind.

Because of this, he does his best to really listen and get to know his clients, ensuring he understands your side of the story and what you expect from him. For his part, he also works hard not to oversell his clients on their chances or make promises that he cannot keep, because you deserve both competence and honesty – not false hope.

A dogged approach.

When you watch TV shows and movies about legal cases, they tend to all be about dramatic speeches and surprising twists and turns that sway judges and juries back and forth like a pendulum.

Real court cases are rarely like this, and it probably will not be some dramatic eleventh hour reveal of new information that determines your case. The real way to ensure you get the best possible outcome is to doggedly track down as much evidence in your favor as possible while finding ways to poke holes in the prosecution’s argument. To pay close attention to every detail and be willing to call everything into question. To be willing to do work that is exhausting and often even boring.

Hire Vernon Ready and he will keep turning over stones and fighting for you until all options are exhausted.

Strong communication skills and a willingness to make himself available.

There is a reason that people go to school for years and years to become lawyers – the law is ridiculously complex and confusing. Worse, when you are facing a charge, your life can feel like a whirlwind of new people talking at you and shuttling you from one place to another.

Because of this, Mr. Ready always strives to sit down with his clients and break down what they are up against, what they can expect, and what the next steps are in the clearest possible language. He also gives out his personal cell number to each and every client and makes a promise to return all calls by the end of the following business day.
