When Someone Is Charged in Centennial, Everyone Knows

Centennial, Colorado is not some small town far from big city life. First of all, it is only about a half hour from Denver and Lakewood, and a mere 20 minutes from Aurora. Second, the city itself is quite large, with over 100,000 people when it was incorporated back in 2001.

However, it definitely has a small town feel in many ways. By and large, people here know their neighbors. They take ownership of their communities. They pay attention to what is going on around them. They watch out for each other. They get involved.

These are many of the reasons mentioned in a 2009 Denver Channel story about why Centennial was named the 15th safest city in the country.

Today, things are largely the same, with a property crime rate that is less than half of the average for both Colorado and the United States, and a violent crimes rate hovering around a third of the national and state average.

However, there is a dark side to places where everyone knows your name – particularly if you find yourself under arrest or facing charges in Centennial. Your friends, neighbors, and coworkers will notice, and your reputation can quickly take a big knock. Moreover, law enforcement officials may decide to make an example out of you in an effort to deter others.

When you are up against factors like these, it is incredibly important that you get someone on your side who will look out for your interests and ensure your rights are protected. Someone like Vernon Ready of Ready Law.

Mr. Ready has successfully represented people in and around Centennial for years, and if you hire him to defend you, he will do everything in his power to get your charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed.

Reasons You Should Choose Centennial Criminal Lawyer Vernon Ready

The Greater Denver-Lakewood-Aurora Metropolitan Area is rife with defense attorneys. You can see them on billboards. In local papers. On TV. Each one proclaiming to be better than the last and imploring people to get in touch.

How do you know when a lawyer is truly right for you? What should you consider for when searching for the person who will give you the best chance at a positive outcome?

Results, certainly. Experience handling your specific charge is incredibly important, too. Awards and recognition tell you they are well-respected within the legal community. Belonging to numerous legal organizations is a sign they take their work seriously, and they strive to stay up-to-date on the latest changes to the law and recent legal decisions that could impact the outcome of cases.

Vernon Ready has all of that going for him, but that is not why clients praise him. What do they mention?

Professionalism. You would think that all lawyers would behave in a professional manner, but unfortunately, that is just not the case. Some show up late to meetings with little-to-no explanation. They come unprepared. They bring the wrong case file. They miss deadlines.

Mr. Ready will never treat you this way. He understands that this is not just a case for you – it is your life and your future. Because of this, he carefully prepares for every single meeting, giving it – and you – a level of respect and care he believes should be expected.

Communication. The law is full of confusing language and concepts. Written legal documents can seem impenetrable to the untrained eye because they are so carefully crafted to avoid running afoul of the law. Some lawyers become so used to this kind of communication they have trouble stepping back from it and talking to their clients like normal people, but not Vernon Ready.

He understands just how difficult it can be to understand “legal-speak,” and he believes that one of the most important parts of his job is to make you a part of the process by breaking things down in a way that makes sense. He wants you to have a clear idea of what you are up against. To know the options available to you. To be aware of your chances. To have an honest assessment of the situation.

Because clients who understand what is going on in their case tend to be a lot more helpful than those who are simply pulled along for the ride. And your help is something that helps Mr. Ready help you.

Availability. While there are certainly times that Vernon Ready will not be able to speak with you immediately, he always does his best to make himself as available to his clients as possible.

One of the ways he does this is by ensuring every single person he takes on as a client is given his personal cell phone number. If he is able to, he will always pick up the phone and talk to you about any case-related issues on your mind. If he cannot answer at that moment, he will return your call by the end of the following business day.

Centennial Residents Should Come to Vernon Ready about These Types of Charges

Certain defense lawyers may be fantastic at defending one type of charge, but have little skill at handling others. Some of them even advertise themselves this way, as a DUI attorney or a domestic violence lawyer, for example.

Because of this, it is of the utmost importance that you work with an attorney who has a proven track record handling the specific offense of which you stand accused.

Vernon Ready has been able to successfully take on a number of different types of criminal cases, such as:


Child Abuse/Endangerment

Computer & Internet Crimes

Criminal Mischief

Deferred Prosecution Options

Disorderly Conduct

Domestic Violence

Drug Crimes


Expungement / Criminal Record Sealing




Probation Violations

Prostitution / Solicitation

Restraining Orders

Search and Seizure
