A Christian criminal defense attorney may seem like a contradiction. On the contrary, at the O'Malley Law Office, we strive to let our clients know where we stand on issues and promise to fight hard for them. As Christian lawyers serving in Denver, Jefferson, and Weld County, we believe in justice for all. We know that identifying ourselves as Christians is helpful in the long run because we hold ourselves to higher standards. In defending an Unlawful Sexual Contact (CRS 18-3-404), Indecent Exposure (CRS 18-7-302), or Enticement of a Child (CRS 18-3-305) charge we know the government often is nor fair or just, and we work to get that justice for our clients.
Many times, lawyers may appear sleazy or fast talking, and oftentimes they are. They can quickly out-talk or manipulate a client into believing that the client should hire them for their case. This may work with a layman who does not know the law nor have the education that a criminal defense attorney has, but a judge can quickly see through those tricks. Fast talkers don't get very far in a courtroom. They may put on a good show full of bravado, but they lack the emotional genuineness that is needed to gain favor with a judge or court in Weld, Douglas, Adams, or Arapahoe County.
Judges are not in the business of letting people go free. A judge's job is on the line every time they acquit a defendant or admit that they are innocent. Most judges would rather take the chance that the defendant is guilty and err on the side of caution. No judge wants to let someone go only to have them commit a crime later on. The judge takes a huge chance every time they accept the defense of a person.
As Christian lawyers, we hold ourselves to a high ethical standard. This is respected by judges. We have built a strong reputation for ourselves as honest and up-front. Judges remember this and we have a high factor of believability when presenting a case before them. Many other lawyers resort to underhanded tricks or have questionable ethics. While this may work in the short run, these tricks will catch up with them in the long run and leave them with unfavorable results and a sullied reputation. You want to make sure that the experienced criminal defense attorney you hire for your sex offense case has the highest reputation possible.
If police contact you for a felony or misdemeanor sex offense case, be smart, exercise your right to remain silent, and contact the experienced Christian criminal defense attorneys at the O'Malley Law Office at 303-830-0880. Together, we can protect your future.
