Larimer County's Premier Criminal Defense Attorney




DUI charges are serious and need to be treated as such. Aside from the possibility of facing jail consequences, you will face penalties that may also involve losing your driving privilege for an extensive period of time. A conviction can also have collateral consequences that can cause problems for years to come. Some are under the impression that these charges will be easy to handle in court and will choose to pursue representing themselves. The truth is that each DUI/DWAI case has two separate aspects that will need to be managed- criminal and administrative.

The Criminal Aspect of your case with the Blanco Law Office mean Ms. Blanco will review the evidence in your case including any breathalyzer or blood results (your blood alcohol content or BAC), police reports, roadside sobriety maneuvers and witness statements. In addition we will look into the reliability of the machine which scored your results to make sure the State has maintained the machine appropriately. Each of our clients are unique and the negotiations we engage in are tailored to fit your specific needs. Our negotiations with the District Attorney have often provided our clients with the ability to have the charges dismissed through deferred sentences (a deferred sentence can only be gained through negotiation with the District Attorney and cannot be given to you by the presiding Judge or Magistrate). We will lead you through the options that are available to you and help you make educated decisions. We never accept any offers without consulting with you and invest our time to help you make the best decisions by providing you with the education and information you need to make the best decision for you. We are dedicated to protecting your rights at every step of the proceedings as well as developing your best defense.

The Administration Aspect means Ms. Blanco will assist you with the Department of Motor Vehicles. Depending on your history and the facts of your case we can help you understand what your options are. We are sensitive to the fact that a plea to a DUI or a DWAI can impact your ability to drive and we will advise you on what can be done to minimize the damage to your driving privilege. Loss of license and continued driving can lead to additional criminal charges of Driving Under Revocation and carries mandatory jail sentences. We want to help you limit the consequences on your license.
