Battle Your Englewood Charges with an Aggressive Defense

People do many things in Englewood. They work and go to school. They golf. They bike. In warmer weather, they enjoy splashing and sliding around. They experience the arts, including a variety of live performances.

They also spend a lot of time committing property crimes – at least according to Sperling’s crime data.

In this respect, Englewood is an interesting place. It is not a location most would think of as crime-ridden. In fact, violent crime here is moderately lower than averages across the U.S., in Colorado as a whole, and in the Denver-Aurora- Lakewood metro area.

However, property crimes practically double the averages of those places. Because of this, local law enforcement officials are constantly striving to crack down on various forms of theft and other crimes involving property. Sometimes it can lead to overzealous policing.

As an experienced Colorado criminal defense lawyer who has helped countless people in and around Englewood to protect their rights for years, Vernon Ready has dealt with this type of mentality many times. The best way to combat law enforcement officials who are attempting to make an example out of you is to work with a skilled, aggressive defense attorney who is not afraid to stand up for your rights and ensure things are done by the book.

His mission at Ready Law is to make sure that every one of his clients gets the strongest defense possible and receives the best chance at having their charges reduced, dropped, or dismissed.

Why People in Englewood Turn to Vernon Ready to Handle Their Criminal Charges

What makes Mr. Ready an excellent criminal attorney?

When looking for a lawyer to defend them, most people focus on things that are tangible. Where the attorney went to school. Cases they have won. Awards and recognition they have received.

The intangibles, however, can be just as important. One of the most important intangibles? What it is like to actually work with a lawyer on your case.

That is why Mr. Ready is proud to feature some of the many wonderful testimonials that past clients have given him. Here are some of the common themes:

Easy to talk to and understand. Dealing with a criminal charge is like being asked to take a test in another language while riding a roller coaster. Things come at you fast and furious, and a lot of the time they do not make a whole lot of sense.

Vernon Ready believes that a large part of his job is simply helping his clients to understand the situation they are in and the options available to them. He always does his best to simplify and clarify things about the case, the process, and your charges, and strives to answer any questions you have.

Prepared and professional. When you hire a defense attorney to help you fight your charges, you expect a certain level of competence and respect for your time and the situation you are in.

Sadly, not all lawyers seem to feel the same way. They might have little idea who you are when you meet with them. Or show up late. Or cancel repeatedly at the last minute. Or neglect to have your case files available.

Mr. Ready does not work this way. He understands that a large part of helping you reach a favorable outcome involves putting in the work. Preparing and planning ahead of time. Dedicating himself to learning the facts of your case.

Moreover, he understands just how trying this experience likely is for you. He will do everything in his power to keep meetings, show up on time, and generally show you the respect you deserve.

Willing to listen and make himself available. Some lawyers think they come in with all the answers and barely need to interact with clients. Or they make themselves so busy with other cases that they rush through meetings and only communicate with you when it is absolutely necessary.

Not Vernon Ready. This is your case. Your future. As such, he wants your insight and your side of what happened.

He also understands that you might not always remember everything in the hustle and bustle of a face-to-face meeting with him. And he wants his clients to feel like they can reach out to him whenever they need to. That is why he always gives his personal cell number out to each and every client. If he is unable to answer when you call, his policy is to get back to you by the end of the next business day.

Englewood Charges That Ready Law Understands How to Fight

Something else important to consider when hiring a Colorado criminal lawyer: whether or not they have had experience handling your specific charges.

This is something that a lot of people do not think about. After all, if someone is a defense attorney, they deal with all kinds of crimes, right?

Not necessarily. Many lawyers in our area actually only specialize in one or two types of cases. If you make the mistake of going with one of them, you may quickly discover that they have little understanding of how to fight your charges.

So check their practice areas. Make sure that your specific charge is listed as something that they handle. If you do not notice your charge, ask. Learning this information up front can save you a lot of grief down the line.

Some of the most common criminal cases Mr. Ready deals with include:


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

The Earlier You Start Fighting Your Englewood Charges, the Better Your Chances

Even though criminal cases can sometimes take a long time, most of what will impact the outcome of your case is likely to occur in the first few days or weeks. Law enforcement officials will grill you and try to get you to confess or agree to a plea deal that favors them. Evidence will be collected and processed.

If you do not have a knowledgeable Englewood criminal lawyer by your side throughout this process, it can negatively impact your case in a huge way. Do not wait to start fighting. Contact Vernon Ready now by filling out the case evaluation form on our site, calling 303-993-5512, or emailing
