For over 10 years Hannah has represented adults charged with criminal offenses including:
- Car theft
- Domestic violence
- Drug possession and distribution
- First-degree murder
- Serious drug offenses
- Sexual assault
- Weapons offenses
Juvenile law is a specialized area of practice. Hannah has been representing children alleged to have committed serious offenses in both adult and juvenile court for the past eight years. Science shows us that children’s brains continue to develop into their 20s, and delinquent behavior can be a normal part of growing up. Hannah believes all children should receive legal representation that is client-centered, individualized, developmentally and, age appropriate. Children who are involved in the juvenile and criminal justice system deserve special attention and the expertise of a lawyer who has successfully represented children in delinquency cases across the state. Hannah can help with any charge in juvenile or adult court, including:
- Sex offenses: sexual assault on a child, unlawful sexual contact, indecent exposure, possession, and distribution of child pornography, date rape, and statutory rape.
- Domestic violence
- Drugs offenses
- Underage drinking
- Property crimes
- Sex offender deregistration
In certain situations, children in Colorado can be prosecuted in adult court, either by transfer to adult court or in certain situations, cases can be directly filed in adult court. It is imperative that you hire a lawyer who understands the complex issues that arise in juvenile court, and is prepared to litigate and negotiate to ensure the best result for the accused child.
Some of Hannah’s most significant wins have taken place outside of the courtroom before charges have even been filed, as she has successfully navigated the pre-file process and convinced law enforcement not to file charges against her clients.
University Disciplinary Proceedings:
When people are charged with or are being investigated for allegedly committing a criminal offense, it’s common for other areas of their lives to be affected. When hiring an attorney, make sure you find someone who will consider the collateral consequences of a conviction, including, alleged honor code violations in disciplinary proceedings at universities and colleges.
