Castle Rock Criminal Charges Can Ruin Your Reputation – Get Help

What is Castle Rock known for – besides the namesake rock?

Affluence. Serving as home to a high percentage of people who work in the Denver Tech Center. Having parks and open spaces encompass more than a quarter of the municipality’s total area. Great schools. Getting on all kinds of “Best Places” lists over the past two decades – from Family Circle to CNN.

Something you hear almost no one talk about when discussing Castle Rock? Crime. Because it is next to non-existent here.

According to Area Vibes, property crimes here are 44 percent under the average for Colorado and 37 percent less than the U.S. average. The difference in violent crimes is even more noticeable – 74 percent lower than Colorado and 77 percent below the national average.

Those are great numbers if you are thinking about moving to this area or raising a family here. However, they are problematic if you ever find yourself on the wrong side of the law in Castle Rock.


Because when someone is arrested or charged here, it tends to draw attention. Your good name can quickly be sullied with friends, coworkers, and neighbors. Moreover, local law enforcement officials with a desire to maintain the area’s squeaky-clean image may attempt to make an example out of you in order to discourage others from violating the law. They’ll do everything in their power to not only convict you, but ensure you face the strongest possible consequences.

That is where Vernon Ready comes in. He believes wholeheartedly that everyone deserves the benefit of working with a knowledgeable criminal lawyer who can help put together the strongest possible defense strategy for your individual situation. Over the course of his legal career, he has helped countless people in Castle Rock and the surrounding areas to fight for their rights and future, and he is ready to work with you, too.

Reasons Vernon Ready Is the Defense Attorney of Choice for People in Castle Rock

When you are up against the law in Castle Rock and facing criminal charges that threaten to derail the life you have built for yourself and your family, it is important that you choose the right lawyer for you.

What does that mean? Most people tend to look first at things like where an attorney went to school. How long they have been practicing in the area. Awards that they have won. Organizations they belong to. Their case results.

Those things are valuable to know. You absolutely want to ensure you are working with someone who has proven that they can handle themselves in and out of the courtroom. That they understand what it takes to negotiate with prosecutors and possess the skills and acumen necessary to present your case to a judge or jury if you end up going to trial.

Vernon Ready has the background and the experience to give his clients the best chance at a positive outcome, but those are not the things that most of his clients in Castle Rock rave about.

Simply put, dealing with criminal charges – or even an investigation – is confusing and terrifying. Particularly if you have little experience with cops or the Colorado criminal justice system, the whole thing can make you feel like you are being pulled in a million directions at once without any real sense of what is happening or any ability to control your fate.

Mr. Ready gets that. It is why he always makes a point of sharing his personal cell phone number with every single client. He wants you to feel like you can always reach out to him with any questions that you have or worries that you need to get off of your chest. Sometimes other things necessarily take precedence over answering his phone, but even if he is unable to speak with you immediately, he always returns calls by the end of the following business day.

It is part of his overall belief that one of the biggest parts of his job is to help you understand the process and make you feel like you have a voice. So he listens. He treats his clients with compassion and dignity. He answers questions as honestly and completely as possible. And he works hard to break down complex legal situations, so you understand the options available to you and what you are up against.

The other big part of the job? Putting in the work.

Despite what happens in almost every courtroom drama, most legal cases are not resolved with surprise twists and last-minute miraculous discoveries. Real attorneys help out real people by having a dogged approach to the law, being thorough, and paying close attention. These are the qualities that enable good lawyers to catch law enforcement errors. To track down hard-to-find evidence and witnesses. To wear the other side down by continually finding ways to poke holes in their case.

When you hire Vernon Ready, you are getting someone truly willing to work for you and fight to ensure that you receive the best possible outcome.

Act Fast for the Best Chance at Beating Your Castle Rock Charges

The longer you wait to deal with a potential criminal situation, the harder it will be to minimize the damage to your life and future. Remember, every conversation you have with police officers or prosecutors provides them with more information they can potentially use against you later. Every day that goes by increases the chance that you will not be able to collect or use some possibly valuable piece of evidence.

You cannot change what happened in the past, but there is still a lot that a knowledgeable and experienced Castle Rock criminal attorney can do to protect you. The earlier you start working with Mr. Ready, the more likely it is that he will be able to get your charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed. In some cases where clients are still being investigated, he may even be able to prevent charges from ever being filed – something that helps you maintain your reputation in the community.
