Colorado defines domestic violence 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 includes not just current spouses and roommates, but also former spouses and partners, adults related by blood or marriage, and persons who are both parents of a child.

Domestic abuse can manifest in many forms beyond just physical violence, including financial abuse, internet-based abuse like cyberstalking, or emotional abuse through harassment. Crimes related to domestic violence can result in jail time, fines, and a permanent criminal record, so if you have been accused of domestic violence, there are a few things that you should be prepared for:


  • In Colorado, domestic violence is taken very seriously by law enforcement and the courts. If law enforcement is called to investigate a possible domestic violence situation, they are required to make an arrest if there is enough probable cause that a crime has been committed.
  • If a person pursues medical treatment for injuries that are suspected to be the result of domestic violence, medical professionals are required by law to report the case to the police. As a result, the accused may be charged with a crime based on misunderstandings or false allegations.
  • A domestic violence restraining order will be issued against the accused, which will result in the accused having no contact with the accuser.
  • The accused may also be held temporarily in jail until they can appear before a judge for advisement and entry into a Mandatory Protection Order. Once issued against the accused, they will be barred from having any contact with the accuser.

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.
