A Knowledgeable Criminal Litigation Attorney Effectively Represents Clients in Court
Aggressive criminal defense attorney in the Denver area
Have you been accused of committing a crime? Don’t let the prosecution bully you around. Stand up for your rights: Begin by hiring a dedicated criminal defense attorney who will represent you forcefully in the face of prosecution accusations. My name is Martin R. Nelson, and I have 30 years of experience serving Denver-area clients in criminal cases — providing aggressive representation with proven results.
Ensuring your freedom
I am devoted to protecting my clients’ freedom. I strongly challenge prosecution efforts to prove their case, and do everything in my power to avoid conviction or to reduce any sentence that might be imposed. I know that witnesses might lie on the stand, crime scenes can be tampered with, and police officers can make mistakes. I personally speak with witnesses to ensure that they are telling the whole truth. I can examine the alleged crime scene thoroughly, searching for evidence that can help prove your innocence. Also, I pore over police records and bring in experts to challenge the prosecution’s theories.
Protecting my clients’ best interests
I represent clients in the following criminal matters:
If you have been charged with a felony, it is essential that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to zealously defend you in court. Felonies — such as murder, rape, armed robbery, credit card fraud and burglary — are the most-serious crimes. Felony convictions also have the most-serious consequences. A person convicted of a felony is sentenced to serve at least one year in a state or federal prison — and might be committed for life. Also, convicted felons are stripped of many of the rights that are guaranteed to American citizens, including the right to vote, the right to travel out of the country and the right to own a gun. Convicted felons also have to disclose their crimes on job applications, and they can be deported if they are not American citizens.
How your felony charge is defended can make the difference between life and death for you. I have 30 years of experience handling felony charges. I am committed to attaining the best possible outcome for you.
Misdemeanors — crimes such as disorderly conduct, simple assault, shoplifting and trespassing — are punishable by less than a year in prison. Although misdemeanors are less serious than felonies, having a misdemeanor conviction on your criminal record can limit your employment options and can result in a jail sentence. Ensure that you receive a fair trial by letting me represent you.
Motor vehicle offenses
If you have been charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driving with a suspended license or vehicular manslaughter, I help guide you toward a positive resolution. I also help you if you need to get your drivers license restored or if you need to a fight traffic ticket.
Charges of trafficking, distributing or possession of illegal substances or drug paraphernalia can result in heavy fines and extended time in jail. To help eliminate or minimize the charges against you, rely on my knowledge of drug crimes and my history of successful results.
Rape and sexual assault cases are often among the most difficult for defendants to win. I have the experience, skills and tenacity that are necessary to successfully litigate these cases.
Sealing and expungement of records
A criminal record can prevent you from pursuing higher education, securing your dream job or traveling abroad. I help you eliminate past criminal charges from your record, or I help get those records sealed so that you can move on with your life.
