Denver, Denver County, DUI Lawyer

Denver DUI cases are prosecuted by the Denver District Attorney's Office, also known as the 2nd Judicial District Attorney's Office.  If you've received a DUI in Denver, it's important to get legal help as soon as possible to protect your rights and freedom.  Denver DUI cases typically originate from a stop and arrest by the Denver Police Department, however sometimes case result from charges by the Auraria Campus Police Department or the Colorado State Patrol. District One: Metro.

Every county in Colorado tends to be somewhat different in terms of how a DUI case flows through the criminal justice system.  Denver cases seem to move quicker than some of the other jurisdictions.  Cases typically start in Courtroom 4F for an arraignment in about 30 days from the arrest.  Thereafter, a background check is usually completed by pretrial services to determine if the person has any prior alcohol-related traffic offenses anywhere in the United States.  If so, a person may be subject to additional restrictions on bond or summons to include monitored sobriety and participation in the pretrial services program.  Fingerprints and photographs may also be ordered at the initial court date. 

After the arraignment, the case will typically be set for a "plea and setting hearing" in one of the trial divisions on the 3rd floor of the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse located at 520 West Colfax Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80204.

Evidence in the case may be obtained from the Denver District Attorney's Office for the criminal DUI case, and from the Colorado Department of Revenue for the Express Consent Revocation case.  It's important for a person who is charged with DUI to recognize that there are typically two cases proceeding at the same time that stem from the DUI arrest.  The first case is a criminal case in the Lindsey-Flanigan Courthouse (Denver County Court), and the second case is a civil administrative case with the Colorado Department of Revenue regarding the person's driver's license. 

In light of Colorado's strict Express Consent laws, a driver stopped in Denver has just 7 days from the date of notice on the Express Consent Affidavit and Notice of Revocation to request a hearing at DMV.  This notice should have been provided by the Denver Police Department at the time of the arrest for a DUI with a breath test or a refusal.  Drivers who complete a blood test at the time of arrest, will receive a Notice of Revocation letter in the mail outlining the procedure and deadline for the hearing request.  The police officer who signed the Express Consent Affidavit and Notice of Revocation may be requested to appear at the Express Consent Hearing.  Often times it's a great idea to request the officer's appearance when requesting the hearing.  In some cases, it may be more beneficial to not request the police officer's appearance at the hearing.  Because each case is unique, it's important for a driver to obtain the assistance of experienced DUI counsel to assist in determining the best course of action in requesting the DMV hearing.

Client Reviews
"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked. DMV had mistakenly sent (3) letters of revocation to the incorrect address, so I hired Monty to prove that my son never knew his license was revoked. Monty kept me informed at all times as to what was happening and what he doing to prove my son's innocence in this matter. We were to appear in court on 29 March 2012 and Monte informed us on 27 March 2012, that the case had been dismissed!!! Monte charged a fair, flat rate for what he did in this matter and should the need arise to hire a lawyer or to recommend a lawyer, I would not hesitate to give Monte's name.” Linda
"I consulted three other attorneys on my traffic offense in Colorado and none of them thought I could beat it. Then I consulted with Monte Robbins. He not only relieved my warrant without my presence in Colorado, but he got my habitual driving offense reduced to an infraction. I was up against the wall on this case but thanks to Monte miracles are possible. I have hired my share of attorneys and Monte Robbins has produced the best results for me yet. After being without my driving privileges for ten years I paid a small fine and am legal with a clean record. I Highly recommend this attorney." Steve
"I hired Monte J. Robbins to represent me. He gave 110% to my case never rushed me off the phone, quick to gather all information regarding my case. Monte is very knowledgeable and helped me out a lot. He kept me informed every step of the way through my case. I was always able to get a hold of him for any questions i had. The outcome of my case was way better then i had expected. Monte did a excellent job on my case and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Monte won my case and I am confident that he can do the same for anyone else." Jeremy
