In Colorado, domestic violence is defined as an act or threatened act of violence upon a person with whom the actor is or has been involved in an intimate relationship. This can also include other crimes against a person, property, or an animal. Here are some things to expect if you’ve been charged with domestic violence in Cañon City:

  • Medical professionals are legally required to report a case to the police if they suspect that an injury is the result of domestic violence
  • Since Colorado is a Mandatory Arrest State, law enforcement is required to make an arrest if there is probable cause
  • A domestic violence restraining order will be issued, meaning the accused will have no contact with the accuser and any dependents involved
  • The accused may be held temporarily in jail until they can appear before a judge for advisement and issuance of a Mandatory Protection Order

In Colorado, domestic violence charges can result in jail time, mandatory domestic violence classes and counseling, permanent loss of gun rights, high probation supervision fees, loss of existing job, permanent disqualification from working in certain industries, and may negatively impact your ability to rent a home or apartment.  We are there to guide you through every step of this process- from modifying protection orders, advocating for dismissal, and negotiating dispositions that will not adversely affect your career.

The case went to trial and the jury ruled not guilty on all charges. Thank you very much, Matt Martin!
Jim BishopClient
I was able to get resolve and the city realized it was violating my civil rights. All this would not have been possible without Matt’s knowledge in civil rights and his expertise with the justice system.
Janet W.Client
Mr. Martin did the hard work necessary to prove that the managed care contract was vague and confusing and ultimately we prevailed in court. Many other attorneys would not have touched this case. Mr. Martin won it.
