Denver Law

My boyfriend was pulled over and arrested in Colorado for suspicion of a DUI. He refused field sobriety test and a breathalyzer, so they drew his blood (do not know the results of the test yet). He works in a field that requires him to have a CDL license to drive company equipment, if he loses that he loses his career and livelihood. He would do pretty much anything to keep his license and his career. What are his options?
The response focuses so much on details here that you haven't given. Best bet is to hire an expert lawyer in Denver in...

Yes, you absolutely should get an attorney. You should probably also check into treatment. Alcohol abuse is one thing,...
2nd DUI in September 2007 Because DMV court decision handed down months before regular court, interlock on car / red license between April 2008 and January 2011, regular license and 0 incidents of any kind since then. When I was going through everything I thought I heard someone say after 7 years you can pay to have it removed from your record. Is that 7 years from date of incident or 7 years from time to regular license back? Thank you for your help!
You cannot remove the conviction from your record in Colorado. It is a life-long offense and cannot be expunged or...
Keys were in ignition, but car was not on. I was playing music in my car for our tailgate party, cops walked around the lot, and just happened to catch me with a beer in my hand while in my car when I was changing a song. Didn't arrest any of my 6 friends there enjoying the tailgate, but arrested me and forced a breathlyzer test. I blew a 0.133 What the hell are cops doing trying to shakedown people at a tailgating party!?!? I put nobody at risk and was CLEARLY not driving my car anywhere. Nobody was acting belligerent in our party and all of the adjacent tailgaters booed the police as they put me in the cuffs. My REAL question is, if I can manage to get these charges dropped in court, can I clear my DMV record from DUI? (I have no criminal record, but assume I will lose license)
Without more info it sounds like you have a very defensible case. From a common sense standpoint the case will hinge...
I was arrested in 12/2013 and charged with DUI. I had no idea what to do, so i refused a chemical test. This led to a 1 year revocation of my license. I was sentenced to a DWAI a few months later. My question is do i have to get an interlock, or do i just get an unrestricted license after not driving for the whole year? Im only a couple months away from completing the year revocation, and do not want an interlock. I cant find any information about refusals that involve DUIs prior to 01/2014.
If you lost your license in Colorado for refusal (first refusal) prior to January 2014, you should be able to reinstate...
I am charged with a dui, I was wondering if it is possible
It isn't common, but you can. But if a prosecutor offers you a deferred, it's likely it's because the case is very weak,...
Ok, so my friend is charged with a dui, has court coming up here in a month but he showed me a notice of revocation from the DMV. Is this even right? Can his license be taken away before he is legally found guilty? ? And can he get it back at least until he is formally found guilty/not guilty
When a person is charged with DUI in Colorado, there are two independent processes going on - the criminal court case...
