Need a Sexual Assault Lawyer?
If you find yourself or a loved one facing sexual assault charges, there’s no doubt that the situation is confusing, intimidating and overwhelming. Known as an aggressive sexual assault lawyer, Denver attorney M. Colin Bresee has successfully represented hundreds of cases. These cases can be won or lost in the first seven days after the arrest. You need an attorney who has dedicated the bulk of their practice to aggressively defending just these crimes.
Let’s face it – no one ever thinks they’ll need a sexual assault attorney. M. Colin Bresee offers almost 20 years experience as a former prosecutor turned defense attorney. These cases are unique to our justice system. The majority of these cases carry an indeterminate sentencing. This means that each charge can put you in prison for the rest of your natural life. The Courts and the prosecutor will treat you as guilty until you are proven innocent and will work together to immediately restrict your life and livelihood.
You need a sex crimes attorney who has the specialized knowledge, training, and dedication to fight for you. No matter what your situation, Mr. Bresee has aggressively fought sexual assault cases in almost every county in Colorado, including recently/currently in Denver County, Adams County, Arapahoe County, Boulder County, Jefferson County, Douglas County, Pitkin County, Eagle County, Mesa County, and Montrose County.

Called By Some the Best Sexual Assault Attorney: Denver’s Legal Resource
Many people hope that an attorney who does not have the extensive experience or a public defender will get them through a sex offense case. These cases are very complex and are frequently won or lost on the details. Every District Attorney’s Office has a “sex crimes” unit. These units have unlimited time, the budget for any scientific testing and expert testimony they need, and the experience to gain any evidentiary, tactical and procedural advantage to convict you. These units seem content to obtain convictions because people cannot afford to defend themselves.
Do not hire based on price alone. Mr. Bresee regrettably receives a phone call every week from someone who hired an inexpensive criminal attorney and was just convicted. Sadly, you frequently get what you pay for – they usually end up with a life sentence in prison. If you don’t have the money to do it right the first time, will you have the money to do it over? Hire on experience, commitment and an attorney’s proven track record. Clients from across the State have experienced exceptional results.

- You cannot return to your house.
- You cannot see your own children.
