“I was facing a revocation for a separate case in another county and looking at 90 days. Jeff knew the only outcome that I could take to avoid this was a dismissal or found innocent. Jeff fought hard a got the dismissal that I needed. This was a very stressful situation and Jeff walked me through the process in an extremely detailed oriented and straight fourth manner. He always responded to my calls and emails very quickly when I had concerns or questions. He even got back to me on Thanksgiving! I couldn’t have asked for a more professional and caring attorney.”

Q. What is the “Victim Rights Act” (VRA) and how might it impact my case?

A. According to the Colorado Division of Criminal Justice: “The purpose of the Victim Rights Act (VRA) Compliance Program at the Office for Victims Programs is to ensure that victims of VRA crimes are afforded their rights as enumerated in the VRA, including the right to be heard at specific stages in the criminal justice process and to be informed of and present at critical stages in the criminal justice process.”

All domestic violence cases are governed by the Colorado Victim Rights Act. This act mandates how certain aspects of one of these cases move forward. This includes notifying the named victim of all court dates and getting their feedback on things like modification of protection orders, plea deals, etc. The named victim does not get the final decision in these matters but their feedback is sought and then the Prosecution (and or the Judge) makes their decisions. It also means there is some increased formality in the cases, because of their perceived seriousness, and that includes most judges requiring the Defendant and their attorney to be personally present at all hearings (where sometimes the Defendant can call in if they have a long drive, etc.).
