Domestic Violence

The Law Office of Monte J. Robbins, Esq. represents individuals charged with domestic violence offenses. In Colorado, the state considers the following to be acts of domestic violence:

  • violent acts commited by one person against another when both parties are in or have been in an intimate relationship;
  • threats of violences made by one person against another when both parties are in or have been in an intimate relationship; and
  • crimes or municipal ordinance violations against a person or property, when used by one person to coerce, control, punish, intimidate or seek revenge against another when both parties are in or have been in an intimate relationship.

A variety of allegations can result in domestic violence charges, ranging from harassment, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief, and burglary to overt threats and assault. If you are being prosecuted for a domestic violence charge, the court will issue a Mandatory Protection Order, more commonly known as a restraining order, as a condition for your release from jail.  This order will require you to stay away from the alleged victim's home, or other places where the alleged victim may go, such as his or her school, church, or job. The order will also require you to avoid contacting the alleged victim directly, including by telephone, letters, email, or text messages, as well as indirectly, such as through a friend, family member, or child. In addition, jurisdictions throughout Colorado have a "no-drop" policy once domestic violence charges are brought. The effect of this policy is to prosecute the defendant on the charges regardless of whether the accuser cooperates.

We recognize the seriousness that a domestic violence charge will have on you, your family and your future. Domestic violence convictions may prejudice an individual during a divorce, child custody or child support proceeding.  Additionally, such convictions also carry a threat of deportation for non-citizens, and may affect your current and future employment prospects, as well as in other situations where a criminal background or court records check is routinely performed.

If you were charged with a domestic violence-related offense anywhere in the state of Colorado, call us immediately at 303-355-5148 to discuss your legal options.

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"An excellent lawyer choice for my son who was charged with driving while his license was revoked.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
